The Chief Executive Officer of AKO Group of Companies, Mr Obiora Atuchukwu is of the view that diabetes could be caused by bad meals and bad lifestyle. He also explained that in some cases, diabetes is hereditory.
According to him among the worst choices of food that diabetics make include canned vegetables with lots of added sodium, Veggies cooked with lots of added butter, cheese, sauce, Pickles etc. But Sauerkraut for the same reason needs to be limited, if you have high blood pressure.
Atuchukwu also explained that processed grains, such as white rice or white flour, Cereals with little whole grains and lots of sugar, White bread, French fries and fried white-flour tortillas are among the bad meals for diabetics.
Other things that are not healthy for people suffering from diabetes include canned fruit with heavy sugar syrup, Chewy fruit rolls, Regular jam, jelly, and preserves (unless you have a very small portion), sweetened applesauce, fruit punch, fruit drinks and fruit juice drinks. Fruits give you carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Most are naturally low in fat and sodium. But they tend to have more carbs than vegetables do.”
On the other hand, The AKO Group CEO enumerated some of the best choices for diabetics to include fresh fruit, plain frozen fruit or fruit canned without added sugar, Sugar-free or low-sugar jam or preserves, and no-sugar-added applesauce.
Atuchukwu further noted whole grains, such as brown rice, oatmeal, quinoa, millet, amaranth, baked sweet potato, and items made with whole grains and no or very little added sugar could be taken by diabetic patients.
He therefore advised diabetics to make use of Dykure Herbal Capsule and the herbal tea as they have the needed properties to fight Diabetes to finish.“Dykure Herbal Capsule and Dykure Herbal Tea are the best options for diabetes.
Both can be used together for effective performance.”
