Plant food – Are the blueberries good for Diabetes?

A lot of people think that diabetes patients are not suitable to consume blueberries as they are too sweet to consume.

However in fact, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) calls blueberries a diabetes superfood. While there’s no technical definition of the term “superfood,” blueberries are packed with vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, and fiber that promote overall health.

For people living with diabetes, blueberries may help with glucose processing, weight loss, and insulin sensitivity.

According to a 2010 study published in The Journal of Nutrition, obese adults with prediabetes improved insulin sensitivity by drinking blueberry smoothies. The study suggested that blueberries can make the body more responsive to insulin, which may help people with prediabetes.

When combined with a low-fat diet, the blueberries also resulted in lower fat mass as well as lower overall body weight. Liver mass was also reduced. An enlarged liver is linked to insulin resistance and obesity, which are common features of diabetes.

As such, blueberries could be beneficial for people with diabetes. Don’t forget to eat a healthy, balanced diet, get regular exercise, and avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption as these are all important factors in maintaining overall health and vitality as we age.
