Haleem is a traditional South Asia and Middle Eastern dish made from wheat, barley, lentils and meat. It is a high-calorie meal containing a high amount of carbohydrates, fat, and protein. This combination can cause a rapid rise in blood sugar levels and may contribute to hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) in people with diabetes.

Optimise the after-effects to enjoy Haleem to the fullest
• Try to limit the intake to the range of 30 to 50 gms.
• Try pairing it with a salad or veggie starter.
• Consider eating Haleem made with whole grain ingredients.

Haleem is associated with hyperglycemia due to the quick absorption of its ingredients into the bloodstream, resulting in a spike in blood sugar levels. The dish is traditionally made by blending or mashing the meat in the curry, increasing the absorption rate of the ingredients. It further results in causing a hyperglycemic event.
