Nutrition is extremely important if you’re diagnosed with diabetes. Depending on what food you eat, it can affect your blood sugar in many ways. This is why it’s so imperative to eat a balanced, healthy diet if you have diabetes. Foods that are full of carbohydrates are the ones that raise your blood sugar, while protein and fats do not. According to, “Foods with a high level of carbohydrates that are rich in fiber and less processed help keep your blood glucose at healthy levels, while highly processed, low-fiber carbohydrate foods can cause blood sugar to spike.”

It’s important to keep track of your glycemic index. According to WebMD, “The glycemic index gives you a way to tell slower-acting “good carbs” from the faster “bad carbs.” You can use it to fine-tune your carb-counting and help keep your blood sugar more steady.”
