The 'diabetes superfood' fruit to protect against high blood sugar symptoms at home

Type 2 diabetes could be caused by the body not producing enough of the hormone insulin, or the body not reacting to insulin.

Without enough of the hormone, the body struggles to convert sugar in the blood into usable energy.

It’s crucial that if you think you may have diabetes, you speak to a doctor as soon as possible.

Making some changes to your daily diet is one of the easiest ways to manage your blood sugar levels.

“There are certain foods that provide huge health benefits for people with diabetes,” it said. “They are often known as ‘diabetes superfoods’.

“Several studies have linked berries to a number of health benefits for people with diabetes, particularly type 2 diabetes.

“Berries are also a good source of vitamin C and fibre, and they don’t contain many carbohydrates.

“Good examples of berries include blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, [and] cherries.”

You could also lower your risk of high blood sugar by adding more cinnamon to your diet, nutritionists have revealed.

Cinnamon helps insulin to provide the body’s cells with enough energy.

Just three grams of cinnamon every day has been claimed to stabilise blood sugar levels.

But if you decide to take cinnamon supplements, as opposed to sprinkling it over your food, you should always speak to a doctor first.

Many people may have diabetes without even knowing it, because the signs and symptoms don’t necessarily make you feel unwell.

Common diabetes symptoms include having cuts or wounds that take longer to heal, having an unquenchable thirst, and passing more urine than normal.

You should speak to a doctor if you’re worried about the warning signs or symptoms of diabetes, or if you think you may be at risk.

Diagnosing the condition early is very important, because patients are more at risk of some deadly complications, including heart disease and strokes.
