Diabetes and bread – Tribune Online

Why are people with diabetes advised not to eat bread, even if it is not sweet? I am diabetic and I like bread. Can I eat it?

The most important thing about the diet for diabetes is not about the sugar or the starch. It’s about carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are converted to simple sugars in the body, which is where the body’s inability to make, regulate, or respond to insulin properly comes into play. Bread contains a lot of carbohydrates. Avoiding foods with carbohydrates means lower insulin injections for type I and more stable blood sugars for type II. It is therefore important to avoid such types of food.
