The 16 Best Foods To Control Diabetes

Figuring out the best foods to eat when you have diabetes can be tough. The main goal is to keep blood sugar levels well-controlled. However, it's also important to eat foods that help prevent diabetes complications like heart disease. Here are the 16 best foods for diabetics, both type 1 and type 2. Fatty fish is one of the healthiest foods on the planet. Salmon, sardines, herring, anchovies and mackerel are great sources of the omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA, which have major benefits for heart health. Getting enough of these fats on a regular basis is especially important for diabetics, who have an increased risk of heart disease and stroke (1). DHA and EPA protect the cells that line your blood vessels, reduce markers of inflammation and improve the way your arteries function after eating (2, 3, 4, 5).

    Hi, I am taking 1000 metformin xr twice a day. I have been for some time.
    Let me appoligize in advance for being indelicate. I noticed that every day I have pills floating in my stools. I got frustrated one day and fished one out and cut it to see what it was. It was clearly the metformin undisolved. It was very nearly/exactly the same size it was when taken. It even appeared to be dry inside.

    Any thoughts / feedback would be appreciated.

    This is very strange. Are you taking any serious stomach medication which might effect your digestion?

    Are you having regular episodes of diarrhea with the metformin? My co-worker has this problem, generally passing her morning meds (including metformin) in the toilet just after lunch. She's never mentioned it to her doctor.
    Have you tried taking the metformin with Immodium or some other antidiarrheal?
    How long have you been on the metformin?
