There are many metabolic syndromes that are prevailing like thyroid, PCOS, diabetes, heart disease, and liver-related diseases. But the most common metabolic syndromes are “type 2 diabetes” and “heart diseases”. It is observed commonly in people living with you or around you.

Heart disease is one of the metabolic syndromes where diseases like congestive heart failure, heart attack, coronary heart disease, and other cardiac disease happen due to high cholesterol, high blood pressure, family history, unhealthy & sedentary lifestyle, and sometimes uncontrolled diabetes.
Diabetes (type 2) is a metabolic disorder that causes high blood sugar (hyperglycemia) Blood glucose is the main storehouse from where we get the energy. In diabetes, the body either doesn’t make insulin or can’t effectively use insulin. There are many cure to diabetes but one major cure is to stay healthy with proper nutrition & an active lifestyle.
Now that we know what these two common disorders are, let’s focus on what a heart-healthy Indian diet for diabetes heart patients, looks like and what all does it include. A heart-healthy diet focuses on nutrition from whole grains, unsaturated fatty acids, proteins from whole grains, eggs & lean meats & high fiber foods which can help to normalize high cholesterol, blood pressure, triglycerides levels, and also uncontrolled diabetes.
Lastly, as per the American Diabetes Association (ADA) & American Heart Association (AHA) guidelines, a minimum of 30 minutes of moderate to high-intensity exercise is a must to keep the heart healthy & to promote overall wellness in the long term.
