Diabetes makes it difficult to eat normal food like others. Diabetics have to adhere to a strict diet and be careful of the sugar content in the foods they eat.

Managing blood sugar levels is key to managing diabetes. This means that they are restricted from several fruits like mangoes, litchis and chikoos which have high sugar levels. There are a number of fruits and remedies that one can eat to reduce the blood sugar levels, reported NDTV.

 

A particular fruit, available in the monsoons is quite effective to counter sugar levels and is very beneficial for diabetics. Pears, also known as nashpati, are very delicious, juicy and nutritious too. It is also useful in weight loss. Do not miss this monsoonal fruit and its multiple health benefits.

The high fibre content in pears is helpful for diabetes patients. A medium-sized pear contains 6 grams of fibre, which is also helps control cholesterol. It also makes you feel full for longer, thus killing the urge for snacking.

Its low glycemic index is also ideal for diabetics. Glycemic index dictates how fast your body can convert the carbs to glucose; it can also indicate the potential of the food to raise blood sugar levels. Two foods with the same amount of carbs can have different glycemic indices. Due to this property, pears are favourable for diabetes patients.
