Diabetes has been one of the major health concerns across the globe. It is a chronic lifestyle disease affecting almost 6 percent of the world population, as per the World Health Organization (WHO). In fact, WHO estimates that India has approximately 8.7 percent diabetic population in the age group between 20 and 70 years. A study, published in the journal Lancet, stated that more than 98 million Indians would be affected by diabetes by 2030. Hence, experts recommend a healthy and well-balanced lifestyle to manage the blood sugar levels in our body. "A chronic disease, diabetes has no permanent cure. Experts suggest medication just to control the blood sugar level and keep it near normal.

These slow-digesting carbs consist mainly of fruits and vegetables, making these staple items in any diabetic diet.
