Can eating chapathi only (as a dietary food) good for blood sugar patients? is rice bad for blood sugar?

Carbohydrates: Eaten alone, chapathi and rice may cause your blood sugar to rise rapidly. Insulin doses and pancreatic response may not be able to keep up. If you want to eat those foods, adding protein, non-starchy (fibrous) vegetables, and healthy fat will help your system deal with the carbohydrate more gradually. Chapathi is a little more nutrient-dense than rice, though. http://tinyurl.com/mxm8qh3.
