Protect Yourself From Diabetes

Glycaemic Index & Diabetes

By Dietitian, Juliette Kellow BSc RD

Q: I have type 2 diabetes and need to lose about 9lb. Would it be safe to follow the GI diet?

A I suggest you check with your doctor before making any changes to your diet. Most diabetes experts agree that including low GI foods in meals can help to maintain even blood sugar levels. However, they also agree that eating to control diabetes – and lose weight – isn’t just about looking at the GI value of foods. They say it’s equally important to focus on eating a balanced, healthy diet that you can stick with for life. For more information about GI Diets click here.
