Diabetes drink

The vegetable juices for both types 1 and 2 should be a part of a diabetes diet, and if fruits are included it should be checked by a dietician or a physician. All fruit juices contain carbohydrates, and carbs are not recommended.

This diabetic drink is vegetable-based. Carrots are a great food choice for people with type 2 diabetes. They fall into the non-starchy vegetable group and are low in carbohydrates than most foods.

Tomatoes are a good choice for diabetics as they are low in carbs and control the amount of sugar in urine.

Beetroot is recommended for diabetic patients when eaten raw. Though high in sugars, beetroot does not result in high glucose concentration in the blood of diabetic patients. The maximum health benefits of beetroot for diabetics is before or after a meal.


1 carrot peeled

1 tomato blanched

1/2 beetroot peeled

Juice of 1 lemon

A dash of Himalayan Pink salt

Note: you may add a peeled cucumber or 3 sprigs of celery


As always: Consult your health practitioner before changing or including anything new to your diet.

  • I can not take any of your juices as mentioned in your blog since I am required to maintain a INR No in between 2-3, and if I do not maintain my INR no, a blood clot is likely to be formed which may give me stroke. All juices mentioned here in by you increases vitamin K which does not allow increase in INR No. Therefore I have been prohibited to take all the items which increases Vitamin K - all greens,Tomato, Reddish, Carrots, cauliflower, many other items which have Vitamin K.

  • YES Himlayan pink salt is Saindha salt /rock salt

  • Dr. Bernstein advises against vegetable juices because they spike blood sugar. He also considers carrots to be starchy. I would go by Dr. Bernstein. Others having any doubts should test, eat/drink and then test again to verify for themselves.
