A multi grain flour is probably a better choice. You can mix ragi and bajra flour with wheat flour and make roti without any issues.

As suggested by many folks here, you can plan to mix various flours like Bajra, Jowar, etc with your wheat flour for making rotis/chapatis. But please note that the glycemic index of commercial whole wheat flour [Sharbati variety] is a bit high (70+).
The better option is to use emmer wheat flour which has low glycemic index. It would be better if you mix this flour with other flours like jowar, soya, etc, for making your chapatis/rotis.
I AM A VERY SENIOR CITIZEN AND I HAVE TRIED EVERY THING. HAVE YOU A LIKING FOR BEGETABLES ONLY? AVOID ALL THESE ITEMS LIKE RICE, BAJRA, CORN ETC. ETC. AND LIVE ON BEGETABLES, AND THE BEST ENEMY TO DIABETES IS WALKING WALKING AND WALKING, IF YOU FIND TIME AND HEALTH.
Basically the real culprit is Carbohydrates...it's high in wheat, rice or multigrain....so u can try flour of peanuts (cheaper option) or Almonds.
