Type 2 diabetes: Best food to eat at Christmas to lower blood sugar – Express

What the studies say

In a study with the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, the consumption of cruciferous vegetables and how it affects type 2 diabetes was analysed.

The study found that higher consumption of cruciferous vegetables such as Brussels sprouts decreased a person’s risk of type 2 diabetes.

In another study, 12 patients with diabetes who were given alpha-lipoic acid supplements experienced increased insulin sensitivity.

The researchers proposed this was due to the alpha-lipoid acid which allowed insulin to work more efficiently to lower blood sugar.
