Diabetes is one disease which is affecting millions of people in the world. And research also suggests that India, along with China would bear the burden of about half the world's diabetic population. Diabetes cases are increasing at an alarming rate. Stress, bad lifestyle choices, consumption of too much sugar and carbs can lead to diabetes even in teenagers. If you are someone who has been diagnosed with diabetes recently or are struggling with this condition for a while, then you must follow a good diet and exercise regularly.

When it comes to following a good diet, diabetics are often advised to refrain from refined carbohydrates and sugary foods as they are known to increase blood sugar levels. Instead, they are advised to include more fibre-rich and complex carbs in their diet. Winter season comes with many such fibre-rich foods that are known to help manage diabetes better.

 

Read below to find out some winter fruits for diabetes that you should include in your diet right away. 

 

Oranges:

 

Research claims that oranges and sweet lime are some of the superfoods for diabetes. Furthermore, oranges are a good source of fibre, and high fibre foods help keep blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar at bay. 

 

Guava:

 

Guava is rich in dietary fibre. Fibre takes a long time to digest and breakdown this helps regulate blood sugar levels by ensuring a slow release of sugar in the bloodstream. It also has a very low glycaemic index. 

 

Kiwi:

 

Kiwi is filled with vitamin C and is a powerful source of antioxidants. It helps in eliminating free radicals causing inflammation. Kiwi is also a good source of dietary fibre. 

 

Apples:

 

Research suggests that fructose and antioxidant polyphenols found in apples improve the metabolic balance and slow the rate at which sugar is absorbed in the body. It is also said that apples lower the risk of developing type-2 diabetes because of a class of antioxidants called Anthocyanin. 

 

Pears:

 

Pears are also a good source of antioxidants and fibre. It is best to have pears raw, and not juice them or blend them in a smoothie, as that may lead to an instant spike in blood sugar levels. Add these fruits to your diet and manage diabetes naturally.
