When diabetes is not properly controlled it may lead to a number of other, serious health issues. It is important to know what the warning signs of diabetes are, and always be on the lookout for them. These signs include constant thirst, the constant urge to urinate, always feeling fatigued, and one of the biggest signs; a feeling of numbness or pain in the hands, legs, or feet.
Luckily there are ways to combat diabetes, and these ways include eating right. Most people will tell you what you should NOT eat, but they will never tell you what you SHOULD eat. These 6 fruits can go a long way in fighting diabetes:
Guavas are a great choice for people with diabetes because:
- They have a high concentration of lycopene (an antioxidant that helps in maintaining blood sugar levels).
- They are rich in dietary fiber, which helps lower the risk of developing type-2 diabetes.
- They contain high levels of potassium, which contribute to healthy blood pressure.
Cherries contain anthocyanins, which help boost insulin which in turn helps control blood sugar levels. This chemical is found in many different foods, like red grapes, berries, wine and tea. However, the biggest insulin effects come from the cherry such as strawberries and blueberries.
Oranges are rich in vitamin C, fiber, and minerals – whilst not being high in natural sugar. Oranges also have a low glycemic index rating which can help maintain a healthy blood sugar level. The high fiber content is also great for weight control.
Grapefruit’s glycemic index is only 25, which makes it very low. It is also high in vitamin C and soluble fiber, which makes it a tap super-food for diabetes. Various studies and researchers have concluded and agreed that grapefruits hold extraordinary health benefits, which make them great for overall health.
“An apple a day keeps diabetes away”. This saying rings true, as apples contain high amounts of fiber, antioxidants, vitamin C and flavonoids, all of which may lower the insulin requirements of diabetics by up to 35%.
