      Prevent & manage diabetes with these foods

      Prevent & manage Diabetes with these foods

      Controlling sugar levels in diabetes and preventing the disease is a major concern for many. Here are some great foods that can help.

      Avocados

      We know you love spreading this on your toast, but this has many benefits too. Not only is it rich in fiber, it has zero sugar and just 80 calories. Interestingly, a 2013 study conducted by the Loma Linda University revealed that merely adding half an avocado to a meal brought a drop in blood insulin levels 30 minutes after.

      Pistachios

      If you eat just a half cup of shelled pistachios daily for four months, you will be surprised at how this will bring down fasting blood glucose and improve insulin resistance for people with prediabetes. A good idea is to add these to yoghurt.

      Oats

      Oats has always been known to be a healthy food. It contains a soluble fiber called beta-glucan which lowers Cholesterol levels. Recent studies indicate that this also has the ability to keep blood glucose in the normal range.

      Leafy greens

      Kale, spinach and other leafy greens are rich in Vitamins and minerals including Vitamin C. These help in reducing fasting glucose blood sugar levels. They are also rich in antioxidants which protect eyes from cataracts and macular degeneration which are common diabetes complications.

      Chia Seeds

      Chia seeds are very high in fiber and low in digestible carbs. This lowers the blood sugar levels by slowing down the rate at which food travels down the gut. The fiber also reduces hunger keeping you feeling fuller for longer.

      Greek yogurt

      This is rich in calcium and conjugated linoleic acid and contains a mere 6 to 8 grams of carbs per serving. It helps in controlling sugar levels.

      Walnuts

      Walnuts are not only delicious, they can really help with diabetes. Studies show that adults who consumed 3 tablespoons of walnuts daily had a 47 percent decrease in developing Type 2 diabetes. 

      Seafood

      Seafood has many health benefits and is good for everything from skin health to cardiovascular health. Studies have proved that fish such as Alaskan salmon and halibut will bring down the risk of acquiring Type 2 diabetes.
