There are no standard answers about diabetes. It's different for each individual. There are not always clear yes-and-no's about foods. Read all the labels, take lots of Glucose Readings after meals (so you know how your diabetes copes with each food), and talk to professionals.
1) Baked beans, lentils, brown and converted rice (not instant) have low glycemic indexes and shouldn't spike your blood glucose; so they're all good. Know your intake however.
2) Most recommend vegetables over fruit just because all fruits include frutose (glucose) while most vegetables are very low. Fruit juices are really discouraged. You could consume a complete meal's worth of carbs and still be very hungry.
3) Diabetes are encouraged to be physically active, but to be very careful about strenuous exercises or activity. Keep your meter handy and know how your body responds to each.
In addition to each person's diabetes being different I am learning that your own diabetes changes from year to year. I have begun to call this a trial-and-error disease.

There are some diabetes fruits to avoid since they are partially harmful for your health. Fruits like mango, banana, ripened papaya, pineapple and sweet grapes are not helping to beat diabetes. Since these fruits do not contain pectin needed for stimulating good digestion, they are not helping to clean your digestive track by removing the waste products. So, all such fruits are very bad for diabetics.

Hi everybody, my nameâ€™s Kylie, Iâ€™m 48 years old, and unfortunately I recently discovered to suffer from diabetes.
Now Iâ€™m trying to found more information about the daily life of people who suffer from this disease, and I think this forum could be really interesting and useful for people like us... :-P
I often travel for job, â€˜cause I work for a public relations agency ;), so I have to fly to meet our customer: about this I heard that could be a problem for diabetics. But having diabetes shouldnâ€™t stop me from traveling, both for job and for leisure!
I read that taking a few precautions can help to have a safer and more relaxed trip... so I heard about people that use regularly particularly socks dedicated to diabetics people, and I found these products on an online shop, [url=http://www.relaxsanshop.com/33--socks-for-diabetics-and-people-with-sensible-feet]Diabetic socks[/url] Relaxsanshop.
Have anyone of you ever tried diabetics socks or this kind of products? I would like to have some feedback and opinions before buy it!
