Misunderstanding 1: Diabetes can not eat fruits
Diabetes patients can eat fruits, because fruit contains vitamins, minerals, dietary fiber and antioxidant substances. Diabetes patients eat fruits and are recommended to control intake between meals. The total volume of fresh fruits per day should not exceed the size of a fist. Of course, the specific amount must be determined according to your actual situation. If you don’t worry, you can consult a doctor.

Patients with diabetes should pay attention to the balance of daily diet, and do not promote it without eating meat at all. Meat is rich in nutrients (such as protein, trace elements, and various vitamins), which is an indispensable part of the diet. It is easy to cause nutritional imbalance without eating meat for a long time. In addition, protein has little effect on blood sugar.
Misunderstanding 3: diabetic patients only eat coarse grains and not fine food
Due to the rich dietary fiber in coarse grains, the blood glucose index is low. Therefore, some diabetic patients eat a lot of coarse grains and do not eat fine food. In fact, this approach is wrong. The main eclipse of coarse grains for a long time will increase the gastrointestinal tract, and it will also affect the absorption of protein and some trace elements. Over time, it is easy to cause malnutrition.
