Diabetic diet

The diet frequently recommended for people who suffer from diabetes mellitus is one that is high in dietary fibre, especially soluble fibre, but low in fat (especially saturated fat) and sugar.

Patients may be encouraged to reduce their intake of carbohydrates that have a high glycemic index.

However, in cases of hypoglycemia, they are advised to have food or drink that can raise blood glucose quickly, followed by a long-acting carbohydrate (such as rye bread) to prevent risk of further hypoglycaemia.

For people with diabetes, healthy eating is not simply a matter of "what one eats", but also when one eats.
