Diabetes and Your Diet
Published: 11/8/2012

Managing diabetes mindfully means more than just monitoring blood sugar levels. It also means making prudent dietary choices to lower the risk of common health conditions associated with diabetes, such as heart disease, high blood pressure and stroke. Work with your physician and a dietician to create a meal plan that best suits your needs. Research has shown that several nutritional elements may be helpful in managing diabetes-related issues: 

  1. Eat more magnesium-rich foods such as spinach, tofu, almonds, broccoli, lentils, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds.
  2. Increase intake of foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, such as cold-water oily fish, fish oil supplements, walnuts and freshly ground flaxseed.
  3. Choose foods that are lower on the glycemic index and have a low glycemic load, such as beans, lentils and whole-grain breads.
Find out which vitamins are right for you.
Everyone's dietary needs are different based on a number of factors including lifestyle, diet, medications and more. To find out what vitamins you need, take the Weil Vitamin Advisor.
