Both these- whole grains and fiber, lower your risk of developing diabetes by improving your blood sugar control. In fact research shows that substituting whole grains for even some refined carbohydrate products -white bread or rice could lower diabetes risk by as much as 36%.In Nurses Health Studies 1 and II a study spanning over 18 years and looking at the health and dietary habits of 160,000 women, it was found that Diabete Mai Piu women who averaged two to three servings of whole grains a day were 30% less likely to have developed Type 2 diabetes than those who rarely ate whole grains. It was found that the bran and fiber in whole grains slows down the digestive processes by making it harder for digestive enzymes to break down the starches into glucose, resulting thereby in slow increases in blood sugar (low glycemic index) and less strain on the pancreas.In addition to its diabetes fighting qualities, fiber lowers the risk of heart disease and also promotes weight loss by making you feel full.

Avoid highly refined grain products like white bread In contrast to whole grain food, white rice, white bread, mashed potatoes, donuts etc. cause sustained increase in blood sugar and insulin levels. This is what is meant when they are said to have a high glycemic load. This resulting load leads to increased insulin Diabete Mai Piu output and conversely increases the chance of developing diabetes.Skip Sugary drinks like soda It has also been advised that skipping sugary drinks like soda etc. and going for the alternative water, coffee or tea is also a good diabetes prevention measure. Sugary drinks not only lead to increased weight but evidence suggest also increase chronic inflammation, high triglycerides and insulin resistance whilst decreasing "good" (HDL) cholesterol, these being all risk factors for diabetes. In fact a synthesis of eight studies made, found that for every additional 12 ounce serving of sugary beverage that people drank each day, their risk of type 2 diabetes rose 25 percent.
