Anyone with diabetes can eat a balanced, healthy diet without giving up the foods they enjoy. Important factors in an effective diet include moderation and careful food selection to maintain blood sugar levels.

In the report, we identify some of the best foods for stabilizing insulin levels and lowering blood sugar, with the patient speaking to a doctor or nutritionist before making any important dietary changes.

Non-starchy vegetables:

According to medicalnews, this vegetable is an excellent addition to almost any diet, including those suitable for diabetics.

There are two main types of vegetables: starchy and non-starchy, the first is rich in carbohydrates, which can raise blood sugar levels, and the second is like: carrots, beans, baby corn, cucumbers, squash and cabbage.

Whole grain foods:

Whole grains offer a healthier alternative to processed or refined grains, providing less nutritional benefit.

The main difference is that whole grains contain more vitamins and minerals, while refined grains include only the starchy part of the grain, which contains fewer nutrients.

Look for products with 100% ingredients in them. Some common examples include:

the bread


brown rice




Corn Starch

A person can incorporate whole grain products into their meals or snacks to help control blood sugar levels.

According to several studies, eating whole grains may help prevent cardiovascular disease and many types of cancer, including stomach, pancreatic, and colorectal cancers.

Healthy fats:

They are an essential part of a well-balanced diet. Some people mistakenly associate all fat content with poor health. However, some of them help in maintaining health, not all of them are harmful.

It may be monounsaturated or polyunsaturated, omega-3, which is an abundant fatty acid in oily fish.

Saturated and trans fats increase levels of harmful cholesterol in the blood, which can contribute to the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Eating more healthy fats with fewer unhealthy fats helps lower bad cholesterol levels and improve heart health.

Fatty fish:

Fatty fish, such as salmon, tend to contain high amounts of protein and omega-3 fatty acids.

The protein content is especially healthy for people with diabetes, as it does not affect blood sugar, it satiates and provides essential nutrients to help the body grow and repair.

People with diabetes should try to add fatty fish to their diet at least one day a week. For people with type 1 diabetes who are underweight, healthy proteins are an excellent choice for safe weight gain.


Cocoa is packed with nutrients, and manufacturers use it to make chocolate, and it contains the flavonoid epicatechin, which may help regulate blood sugar levels.

A 2017 study cited the results of several small studies, which suggest that it may help slow the progression of type 2 diabetes and reduce insulin resistance.

An easy way to add it to your diet is to eat dark chocolate, although too much of it can lead to a spike in blood sugar, but it should be eaten in moderation.

Protein rich foods:

Black beans are rich in protein and fiber, and protein is an essential nutrient in meat, fish, and some vegetables, such as nuts, beans and legumes.

Research suggests that protein does not increase blood sugar levels and may help a person feel fuller for longer.

However, a 2017 study found that eating high amounts of it can have mixed results for people with type 2 diabetes depending on the type of protein.
