What Is a Type 2 Diabetes Friendly Diet?

Why Do You Need a Type 2 Diabetes Friendly Diet?

In people with type 2 diabetes, the body resists insulin or cannot produce enough insulin, which plays a key role in processing glucose or sugar from the diet. As a result, glucose may build up in the bloodstream and lead to several health issues. Having a suitable diet with a low intake of sugar is important to reduce symptoms of type 2 diabetes and lower the risk of further complications. Also, being overweight and obese can be major risk factor for diabetes, so maintaining a healthy body weight with a balanced diet is very important. [1]
