Eating more nuts and low-carb snacks regulates blood sugar levels in diabetics. Diabetes has been one of the topmost killer diseases across the world since 2030; indicate the estimated figures by the World Health Organization.
The condition diebrtes Mellitus, commonly known as diabetes is distinguished according to the inconsistent levels of blood sugar and has also been observed to be associated with heart ailments and obesity. Since 3 decades, prevalence of the condition is rapidly growing within the countries making low and middle revenue.
Eat Well 2 Be Well founder and Registered Dietitian, Cheryl Mussatto from Osage City, Kansas stated that, “Nuts are a super snack food for people with diabetes because they’re the total package — low in carbs and high in protein, fiber, and healthy fat — and they create a feeling of fullness.”
But, the latest research conducted in Canada claims that a daily basis consumption of only 60 gram of nuts can help lower the levels of blood sugar in the people suffering through severe diabetes. So, the research simply suggests cutting off high-carb foods from meal and move to include more nuts such as pistachios, almonds, cashews and walnuts in order to keep the blood sugar levels under control.
“At the same time, nuts also raise levels of ‘good,’ or HDL, cholesterol,” Mussatto continued that, “This cholesterol acts sort of like a sanitation worker, removing cholesterol from the tissues for disposal, which prevents plaque buildup in the arteries. One serving offers 20 percent of your daily magnesium recommendation. That’s helpful, because many people with diabetes are deficient in this mineral.”
