Diabetes type 2 symptoms: Diet to prevent high blood sugar | Health | Life & Style

Keep track of carbohydrates

Carbohydrates directly impact your blood sugar, the charity said.

While being digested, carbohydrates break down into its sugary components, which raise your blood sugar.

You should still eat carbohydrate-rich foods as part of your balanced diet, but be conscious of the amount you eat.

Diabetes UK added: “Healthier sources include wholegrain starchy foods, fruits and vegetables, pulses and some dairy foods.”
