These foods and drinks make blood sugar rise uncontrollably

Keeping blood sugar levels normal is mandatory for everyone. Because, if your blood sugar levels rise too high, this can lead to diabetes.

Diabetes if left unchecked can lead to several complications. Diabetics of course can not eat some foods because it can increase blood sugar levels.

There are several foods that can make blood sugar levels rise uncontrollably. What are they? As reported by Genpi.co, here is a brief explanation:

1. White bread

White bread is the same as rice. In it, there are simple carbohydrates that are easily broken down by the body and converted into glucose. In addition, white bread contains very little fiber. Even though fiber is useful for keeping blood sugar levels stable.

2. Coffee

Diabetics should limit coffee consumption. The caffeine in coffee can increase blood sugar levels. It should be noted that the side effects of coffee on increasing blood sugar levels vary from person to person. 

3. Bananas

You need to know, bananas are fruits that contain high glycemic levels which can increase blood sugar levels. However, diabetics can still eat bananas as long as they are in moderation.

4. Dried fruit

Do you like to eat dried fruits like raisins and cranberries? If you have diabetes, you should avoid consuming dried fruits. The reason is that dried fruit contains about twice the sugar content of whole fruit. However, if you want to eat dried fruit, do not exceed 30 grams.

5. Red meat

Diabetics should avoid consuming red meat. The effects can be very dangerous. Research shows that red meat and processed meat foods such as ham and bacon contain saturated fat that can increase blood sugar levels. In addition, too much protein consumption can increase insulin levels. 

6. Milk

Milk and other dairy products can increase blood sugar levels. Milk contains lactose, which is a type of sugar that is easily digested. However, milk also contains proteins that can counteract this response. If you want to be safe, milk can still be consumed by diabetics in moderate portions. (genpi/jpnn)
