If you have diabetes, the right foods can be an ally in your fight to keep your blood sugar levels in check.
Talk to your doctor, a registered dietitian, or a diabetes educator about how to keep track of how many carbs you eat. That can affect your blood sugar. They may recommend that you use the glycemic index. It ranks how different foods raise your blood sugar. The higher the index, the more it raises your levels.
Whether you've been trying to slim down for a while, or your doctor has recently urged you to do so to help control your diabetes, you understand that the stakes are high.
Not only will losing weight help you look and feel better, but it can improve your blood sugar levels and, in some cases, you may not even need medication anymore.
Yet some diets are better than others, and there are some that are especially bad for you if you have type 2 diabetes. Don't make these six diet mistakes.
