Cash Paid for Diabetic Test Strips: When diabetes is new to your household, you may have never been so aware of what you are eating as you must be now. All of those foods, for example, that we are told on advertisements and in the infamous packaging and marketing, that are supposed to be healthy and ‘good for you’ may be filled with pitfalls. There are no real regulations for most foods in order that they be called ‘healthy’ by their manufacturers.

There are no real regulations for most foods in order that they be called ‘healthy’ by their manufacturers.

At the top of the list might be items like fruit based foods. What could be unhealthy about anything containing fruit? The problem here is that an item may only contain a percent or two of volume in real fruit, and the rest of the item could easily be made from such fillers as can be quite harmful to those trying to control diabetes.

Some foods are obvious to avoid. Soda and sugary drinks are out. Don’t be fooled by juice that claims to be 100% natural fruit juice. They may be too sweet for your condition. Bakery treats, cookies, and candy are obvious, but also try to avoid ‘healthy and natural’ snacks that are packaged, regardless of what they say on the package. The only saving grace to these manufactured and processed foods is that the ingredients are listed clearly on the outside so you can make a good assessment of what you are really eating. Ingredients are listed in order of volume. For instance, a fruit snack might list the following ingredients: High fructose corn syrup, pureed pear and apple juice from concentrate, preservatives. What this means is that the fruit is not the main ingredient. The high fructose corn syrup is and represents the largest volume in the item.

  • Fruit is necessary in your diet, so feel free to eat fresh fruit and combine it with a little cheese, meat, or eggs to help keep your blood sugar in check.

While food items like breads, grains, and pastas don’t contain obvious sugar, their high carbohydrate levels will be converted by your body once you begin to digest them. Breads, flours, grains, and pastas made from whole grains are better choices as they don’t break down so quickly in your system. White and processed versions are to be avoided. Less refined foods in their more natural state raise your blood sugar levels more slowly than the refined types.

Fruit is necessary in your diet, so feel free to eat fresh fruit and combine it with a little cheese, meat, or eggs to help keep your blood sugar in check. Always follow the specific instructions of your health care provider when deciding what to eat and what to avoid, and use your blood glucose monitor to track your body’s ability to process the foods appropriately.
