    Shrimps and Diabetes?

    I've been on a strict diabetic friendly diet for the past few months. I'd like to add a few more food items hereafter and check for personal tolerance levels with regards to BG. I love shrimps and other shellfishes like crabs, lobsters etc. But have been avoiding them for a while thinking it would be not healthy for BGL. Maybe I'm wrong! My internet search so far is not helping me to conclude… any inputs from the community on whether shellfish is healthy for PWD? especially shrimps and crabs? Thanks!

    I say crabs, lobster, shrimp are healthy for diabetics. Have been Type 1 for 49 years now and live near the Chesapeake…we have crabs very often and my cholesterol is very low (156 last check). I just read an artcle (don't have the link) that concluded food has very little effect on your cholesterol levels…it's 99% genes. It's more important for diabetics to avoid carbs. To do that, I eat most protein and fat. Atkins or Med diet is best IMHO.
