Eat sugar refers to people's daily life, sugar, sugar sugar, is a disaccharide, is formed by the combination of oral glucose molecules, after entering the small intestine was quickly decompose glucose, absorbed into the blood, causes a rise in blood sugar. Because of this kind of sugar will decompose rapidly, immediately causes a rise in blood sugar, diabetic patients should strictly control the consumption, serious illness to prohibit the consumption. The illness is lighter, slightly high blood glucose patients, such as eating sugary foods, should reduce the equivalent amount of staple food. So, not all patients are unable to eat (fruit or dessert), just according to the condition to master eat or not eat, how much to eat.

Some diabetic patients due to long-term use of hypoglycemic drugs or insulin injections, produce hypoglycemia reaction, to replenish the amount of sugar, to alleviate or correct hypoglycemia. These patients when they go out, take with some candy, once hypoglycemia reaction and even coma, containing a piece of candy right in the mouth, can prevent hypoglycemia.

In addition, xylitol, saccharin, stevioside, fructose, can be used as a sugar substitute or sweetener, low or almost no heat production, can satisfy the need of sugar "greedy" diabetic patients. Xylitol, fructose and glucose are composed of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen carbohydrates, in vivo oxidation combustion to produce heat, about 16700 each for coke (4000 cards), but in a metabolic process does not need insulin to participate in, after the food for normal or control the speed and level of good diabetic hyperglycemia is lower than that of glucose: if the glucose absorption rate is 100, then the fructose was only 43, xylitol is lower, about 15, but to eat more easy to cause diarrhea. These two kinds of sugar can be used by well controlled diabetic patients, but the amount is not much, and with glucose, computational heat energy to eat when the control is not good, not. The saccharin and stevia is not to provide heat, does not contain the nutrient sweeteners, the sweetness is about 300-500 times of that of cane sugar. But be careful, not the use of saccharin, especially pregnant women to disable.

Overall: the reason why people with diabetes, is because of insufficient secretion in vivo islet B cells, and the body's blood sugar can not be reduced, too much glucose, distribution in vivo, and renal reabsorption function is limited, resulting in diabetes mellitus. Therefore, patients with diabetes can not eat, but should try to eat less sugar content high food, xylitol, saccharin, stevioside, fructose, can be used as a sugar substitute or sweetener, low or almost no heat production, can satisfy the need of sugar "greedy" diabetic patients.
