The Best Nuts For Diabetes

It's no surprise that nuts are heart-healthy but it's also possible that they are beneficial foods for individuals with diabetes. Research suggests that that consuming tree nuts, in conjunction with other dietary changes, can improve blood sugar levels in individuals with non-insulin dependent, or type 2, diabetes and also improve blood cholesterol levels in these individuals. If you have diabetes, be careful of nuts with added sugar in any form, such as honey or chocolate, since these components are high in simple carbohydrate. Mixed Nuts and Diabetes Several research studies have examined the potential benefits of consuming a mixture of different nuts for individuals with diabetes. In one study, published in "Diabetes Care" in 2011, researches found that subjects with type 2 diabetes had increased energy after consuming 2 ounces of mixed nuts daily, compared to a control group. These individuals also had changes that indicated their blood sugar was lower during the study and their levels of "bad," LDL-cholesterol also dropped.

    I am T2 and have used Splenda for years with no adverse effects. In addition, it does not raise my BG. I used stevia years ago before it was processed into crystals. I liked it but, like everything else, it needs to be made so it will dissolve in liquid which I had a hard time doing with it in the natural state.
    I recently came cross Swerve, another sugar sub but made from fruit. It is expensive but very good and leaves no aftertaste. Nectresse is good and very sweet, only a little is needed.
    Some people are concerned that chlorine is used to process Splenda but it contains only 5%. Our drinking water, even filtered contains much more chlorine I believe. I have never had a problem. However, we drink probiotic homemade kefir everyday for our digestive systems. Kefir has about 3 times the probiotics that yorgurt has and is easier to make at home.
