Seniors with Diabetes: What to Eat


Diabetes is a disease characterized by high blood glucose levels, which can be caused by a lack of insulin or an inability to properly use the insulin that is produced. The condition affects over 30 million Americans, including 5.2 million people over the age of 65. The good news is that many foods are diabetes-friendly for seniors and can help them manage their blood sugar levels.

The right foods can help you maintain your weight and prevent complications in people with diabetes. Many experts recommend a diet rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins such as chicken breast or fish such as tuna or salmon.

One great way to start your day is by having a bowl of oatmeal with sliced bananas on top along with some cinnamon sprinkled on top. You can also add nuts or raisins if you want an extra boost of flavor. One thing that many people don’t realize is how much sugar they consume every day from things like ketchup or salad dressing. So, make sure you read labels carefully before buying something new.
