Diabetic Diet Index

Featured: Diabetic Diet Main Article

A diabetic diet, or diabetes diet helps keep blood glucose levels in the target range for patients. Exercise and medication may also help stabilize blood glucose levels. Keeping track of when you take your diabetic medicine, keeping track of food choices, eating the proper amount of fruits, vegetables, carbohydrates, and fats will also help maintain proper blood glucose levels. Foods that raise blood sugar levels are "high glycemic index foods;" examples include:

  • Pumpkin
  • Melons
  • Popcorn
  • Short-grain white rice

Foods that help maintain good blood sugar levels are foods that are low on the glycemic index, for example:

  • Rolled or steel-cut oats
  • Many fruits
  • Non-starchy vegetables
  • Beans
  • Legumes
  • Lentils
