As for the general population, dietary advice for people with diabetes is to eat a diet that’s healthy and balanced. This doesn’t mean you have to cut sugars out of your diet completely. Including moderate amounts of carbohydrates, including sugars, which are spread out over the day, can still be enjoyed as part of a healthy and varied diet.
To help reduce your sugars intake choose products low in sugars or sugar-free. As well as carbohydrate and sugars it’s also important to consider calories, saturated fat and alcohol. Tailored dietary advice for diabetes, along with guidance on the use of certain foods and drinks in the diet, should always be sought from a qualified health professional such as a Dietitian or GP.
