Diabetes type 2 symptoms: Five drinks to add to your diet to control blood sugar


Water is the best all-round drink, according to the charity.

It adds: “If your family likes flavoured waters, make your own by adding a squeeze of lemon or lime, or strawberries.

“Children often need reminding to drink, so give them a colourful water bottle with a funky straw.”

Tea, coffee, chai and hot chocolate

The charity advises: “Cut back on sugar and use semi-skimmed or skimmed milk.”

Herbal teas

Herbal teas can make a refreshing change and most are caffeine-free, says the diabetes experts.
