4 Surprising benefits of Oatmeal for diabetics

Oats Can Improve Blood Sugar Control

It’s a great idea for people with diabetes or those prone to high sugar levels to eat oatmeal at least once per week. This helps to regularize and decrease the sensitivity to the insulin in the body and keep it from increasing to dangerous levels. These effects are mainly attributed to beta-glucan’s ability to form a thick gel that delays emptying of the stomach and absorption of glucose into the blood.
