BEACON TRANSCRIPT- People who suffer from Type 2 Diabetes rely on medication in order to keep the insulin levels to a regular. There are several types of pills and drugs that can help people with diabetes have a normal life. The problem is that they will have to take these medications every day or undergo surgeries. No matter what they choose to do, they need to pay a lot of money.
Nutritionists and doctors found another way for people with Type 2 diabetes to have a normal life; a change in their diet. A new diet can decrease the levels of blood sugar and offer diabetics a better life. Food has a great impact in every person’s life, but in this case, people with type 2 diabetes need to be even more careful with what they eat.
Doctors found 5 foods that are great for people who suffer from type 2 diabetes. The first one is apple cider vinegar which they need to consume every day. They need to put 2-3 tablespoons of vinegar in a glass of water and drink it. This could make a big difference in their diets because it manages the levels of blood sugar.
The second one is avocado because it has monounsaturated fats and can subdue the cholesterol levels. Avocado also slows the absorption of sugars.
Black beans are full of protein and fibers and they have a low glycemic index value. The fact that they are versatile makes them easy to cook at any time of the day, no matter if it is lunch, breakfast, or dinner.
Chamomile Tea is not an actual food, but it has some great nutritive values that people with diabetes need. This tea is great when it comes to the regulation of blood sugar levels. Previous studies showed that people who drink this type of tea constantly have lower levels of blood sugar, which is great news for people who suffer from type 2 diabetes.
The last one is cinnamon. People with type 2 diabetes need to add a half of teaspoon of cinnamon to their daily diet because it makes the cells produce more insulin. More insulin means that people have lower levels of blood sugar. A new study registered great results after only 40 days of adding cinnamon to a diabetic’s diet.
