Which Is Better For A Diabetic Chapati Or Rice
Rice: Do you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes? If you are type 2 you should not call yourself a "diabetic". You have diabetes and should work towards getting rid of it. White or corn rice should not be an issue. If you are going to have a rice meal please check your blood sugar before you start the meal and check again in 2-3 hours. You will quickly learn the good or the not so good rice for your diabetes ...Read more
Lower glycemic index: To minimize the spike in blood sugar when eating fruit, a patient with dm might consider those with more fiber and less sugar- berries and cantaloupe, for example. Starchy and very sweet fruit like banana, mango will cause more of that spike. Better also to eat an apple with rather than w/o the peel. Eating the fruit rather than juice also provides more fiber and somewhat lower spike. ...Read more
Is chapathi and parata is good for peptic ulcers? Also suggest having rice, ghee rice and chicken.
Not particularly but: Most peptic ulcers are caused by infection by H. pylori bacteria. While a bland diet may reduce stomach irritation it will not heal the infection nor the ulcer. While the conventional medical treatment is antibiotics, certain antimicrobial herbs can be effective. The best foods include cabbage, broccoli, ginger, garlic and turmeric.

Is brown rice healthy for consumption for a type 2 diabetic? I like brown rice veggie sushi, is it a healthy choice for me? Thanks.
Better than white: Rice -whether it is white or brown is a carbohydrate and should be eaten in a limited amount when you have dm. Brown rice is a better choice because it is higher in fiiber and tends to have better effect on blood sugars. I usually encourage my pts w dm to stay < 30-45grms/meal in women and < 45-60 in men- rice i feel is a carb that encourage getting rid of and focusing on increased veggies. ...Read more
Neither: Have you heatd the expression: "everything in moderation?" rice has alot of starch, which is not good especially if you don't try to eat it in moderation. That means a little is okay but alot is not. They say to avoid eating too much of the white foods, like: bread, pasta, potatos and rice. Less is more and better when it concerns starchy foods. Finally, brown rice is better for you than white is. ...Read more
Which is having more sugar among brown rice & white rice and which one is not good for diabetics? ?
Brown rice better: Hi. White rice, like all refined grains, is less healthy for you than the whole grain (brown rice in this case, but also whole wheat compared to white flour). The whole grains have fiber and nutrients that the processing removes. Refined grain products are not good for anyone, including diabetics. Sugar is not added to grains in the refining process, however; whole grains have as much starch. ...Read more
Will a breakfast consisting only of bananas and green apples be good or bad for health? Is it recommended? Plus soya milk
It Depends: As with all things in life; it depends. Fructose with fiber is good and you also need protein to modulate your blood sugar spike which is bound to happen with a fruit only breakfast. I recommend doing a "smoothie" with a high grade medical food (pea and/or rice protein) along with your fruit. You will be satisfied and keep your blood glucose stable. To your best health! ...Read more
None: Generally you shouldn't need a post-workout snack. If your blood sugar drops during exercise, take less Insulin before the work-out. If your sugar drops, treat the low sugar with milk, juice or glucose tablets until it returns to normal. Don't treat w/food, as it takes too long to enter the system and increases your sugar too much. ...Read more
