Although the diet for people with diabetes isn’t very different from the healthy ones, some foods still need to avoid for them.

1. Avoid high-sugar foods. These foods include candy, chocolate, sweets, soft drinks, fructose, dextrose, maltose, sucrose and lactose, etc.

3. Generally, all kinds of vegetables are suggested healthy to us, but diabetics should avoid some vegetables including some beans, potatoes and parsnips, because they contain a lot of starches, which is able to raise patients’ blood sugar.

4. Quit smoking and drinking.
