If you have diabetes, your body cannot make or properly use insulin. This leads to high blood glucose, or sugar, levels in your blood. Healthy eating helps to reduce your blood sugar. It is a critical part of managing your diabetes, because controlling your blood sugar can prevent the complications of diabetes. In the Diabetic Diet, the Diabetic Diet Calories are balanced in the diet, which limits calories (sugar and carbohydrates) and includes eating often to keep blood sugar levels balanced throughout the day.
