Fat / Oil for Diabetics ?

I have seen some of the post saying Fat/Oil is good for Diabetics. My personal experience is reducing Fat in food reduces the medicine intact you have to take.

As per experts Insulin just not control the sugar but also needed for metabolizam of fats. So taking excess fat will result more consumption of insulin and undigested fat in your body.

Balanced Carbs + Protein + Fiber (Veg) and least amount of Fat will give you good result.

Very surprising for me., i never use it at all.,...


One of basic reasons for getting to a state of excess sugar is that we change our source of energy from balanced (Food) to More on Carbohydrate.

So reverse is possible if we get to balanced food, which really needs right quantity of Oil/Fat.

We have been tuned badly that no oil/fat, anything in right quantity seems excess; But it is not.

Let us talk about what is right quantity of fats / oil. Fatness (Stoutness) of a person is totally different from cholesterol he has in blood. We have been confused on fatness and fat. Generally people who are fat must be having low cholesterol.


Fat is undoubtedly an important item of nutrition but as a means to control diabetes?Right now I am skeptical but will do some search on the subject.For the time being I follow moderation in fat consumption.


Fat does not induce insulin production and thereby the hunger also decreases.So, you consume less food overall and lose weight and and also manage your diabetes better because whatever insulin is available will be sufficient This is the general theory behind low carb high fat diet.I may be wrong in my understanding and therefore will be glad to be informed.


30-50 gms/day means only one chappati, you mean. Don't you think it is starvation?


If that was all you ate, yes. However, there are plenty of natural, additive-free, unprocessed protein and fat foods such as meat, poultry, fish, seafood, eggs, cheese, coconut oil, palm oil (not hydrogenated), olive oil, butter, ghee, duck fat, goose fat, and lard that you can eat that don't contain carbohydrate. uk.sitestat.com/diabetes/we...
