sweet stuff here’s why desserts can be a problem when someone is diabetic when
you’re diabetic your body either has to deal with not being able to use insulin
correctly or your body doesn’t make enough insulin in some cases diabetics
can experience both issues insulin is a hormone your body produces to put sugar
where it belongs once it enters your bloodstream if you have problems with
insulin production or your body doesn’t know what to do with the insulin that
means your blood will become too sugary which is why avoiding sugar is important

world chocolate seems like it’s a bad word but really a dark chocolate has
many health benefits like antioxidants for those with diabetes however you’ll
have to be extra diligent when it comes to checking the labels many companies
like to throw in the dreaded added sugar when it comes to dark chocolate so
you’ll want to make sure there’s not any extra hidden in the ingredients try to
go for 70% and higher to get any of the health benefits frozen grapes and
bananas sometimes it’s best just to keep it simple fruit does contain sugar but
it’s natural sugar and you won’t have to worry about any of those troublesome
added sugars either eating frozen bananas or grapes is a great way to cool
off in the summer time you can even blend the bananas together to make an
ice cream consistency the frozen grapes will also have a sort of slushy
consistency as well you can lay out the frozen bananas on a cookie sheet first
and then transfer them to an airtight container and the grapes can go right
into a bag or container kept in the freezer until you’re ready to enjoy
