Hi Gus Hilda, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Diabetics are advised to consume foods that have a low glycemic index. White rice (including rice from Bulog rice) is a food that has a high glycemic index so it is not too good for diabetics to consume. Diabetics are advised to replace white rice with other carbohydrates that have a lower glycemic index, such as brown rice, brown rice, or basmati rice, which have moderate glycemic index, or oatmeal (not instant), whole wheat, whole wheat pasta, whose glycemic index is low.
Diabetics are also advised to consume more fiber foods, such as vegetables and fruits. Selection of fruit should also be done wisely. Examples of fruits with a low glycemic index that are good for diabetics include apples, pears, oranges, peaches, plums, strawberries. Meanwhile, fruits that have a high glycemic index whose consumption needs to be limited by diabetics include bananas, pineapples, watermelons, melons, papayas, etc.
In addition to maintaining a healthy diet, your father should also accompany it with a healthy lifestyle. Do regular exercise (at least 30 minutes a day), increase physical activity, stop smoking, avoid alcohol, reduce stress, get enough rest will also help improve high blood sugar conditions. Also make sure your father takes diabetes medications from a doctor regularly. Do not stop taking medication even though your blood sugar has reached normal, because blood sugar will return to high if you don't take the medicine. To find out more clearly what food is good for your father to eat, your father can also consult a nutritionist doctor.
Here are articles that you can read about diabetes, eating for diabetics, and the glycemic index of foods.
