Diabetes is a condition that causes high blood sugar levels. Whether it is Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, a healthy diet could help manage the condition. Diet plays a key role to keep the blood sugar levels under check.
Dr.Laurence Sperling, director of Preventative Cardiology, Emory University, said, "Dietary approaches are really just as important as medical approaches to the treatment of diabetes."
The American Diabetes Association has come up with a list of super foods for diabetics. The foods include beans, dark green leafy vegetables, citrus fruits, tomatoes, fish high in omega 3 fatty acids, whole grains, nuts and fat free milk and yogurt.
White bread, white rice, white potatoes and sugared beverages are the list of foods to be excluded from the diet for diabetics.
Dr. Sperling, said, "Consulting a nutritionist is ideal for diabetics. Regular medications along with healthy diet, consulting a doctor and a team of health professionals are a good team approach."
