The paper first discusses the oral health problems that can be caused by diabetes and goes on to discuss how a managed diet helps diabetics manage their symptoms and improve their overall health. The paper explains why eating fresh fruits and vegetables is important and describes how diabetics must reduce their intake of refined sugars, trans fats and sodium, and must lose weight effectively. The paper points out that products labeled as "low fat" or "light" are usually highly processed and filled with additives, preservatives and a lot of salt, and should be avoided in favor of wholesome and fresh foods.

From the Paper:

"Diabetes affects about 23 million--almost 8%--of the American population (American Diabetes Association). Many Americans may be unaware that they have the condition. Most Americans with Diabetes have Type 2 Diabetes. Type 2 Diabetes is the inability to properly metabolize glucose and produce insulin. Type 1 Diabetes is also the body's inability to metabolize or produce insulin, "a hormone that is needed to convert sugar (glucose), starches and other food into energy needed for daily life," (American Diabetes Association). Type 2 Diabetes is usually preventable and caused by lifestyle and dietary habits. Type 1 Diabetes is usually passed down from generation to generation and is diagnosed in young children."
