What should be restricted in diet for a diabetic patient?
Hello, What should be restricted in diet for a diabetic patient? My father is diabetic and his glucose level is deranged after taking medicines. Please help me with your suggestions.
@rajan Eating certain foods and limiting others can help people with diabetes manage their blood sugar levels. A diet rich in vegetables, fruits, and healthy proteins can have significant benefits. Both sugary and starchy carbohydrates can raise blood sugar levels. But these foods, in the right amounts, can play a role in a balanced meal plan. The right amount and type of carbohydrates can be based on many factors, including a person’s activity levels and medications, such as insulin. For people with diabetes, the keys to a beneficial diet, according to the American Diabetes Association (ADA), are as follows:
Include fruits and vegetables.
Eat lean protein.
Choose foods with less added sugar.
Avoid trans fats.
Eat fewer processed foods, especially ultra-processed foods.
