Managing blood sugar levels: Tips for avoiding spikes from simple carbs

Managing glucose levels is crucial for everyone, especially for diabetics. Prolonged spikes in glucose levels (hyperglycemia) can lead to complications, so it’s essential to be mindful of what you eat. One common culprit behind high blood sugar levels is simple carbohydrates, like those found in a plain paratha and sweet milk tea.

Have your favourite paratha and tea with a healthy spin
• Consider using low-carb flour like almond or lupin for your parathas. You can also add psyllium husk to the dough for added fibre. It will slow down the release of glucose into the bloodstream.
• Pairing your paratha with a protein-rich curry can help stabilise blood sugar levels and prevent spikes. Protein can help slow down glucose absorption into the bloodstream as protein takes longer to digest.
• Avoid milk and sugar in your tea. Wait a few hours after eating to have tea and check if your blood sugar levels remain stable.

Sugar, milk and wheat flour have a high glycemic index (GI). High GI foods tend to raise our blood sugar levels and cause hyperglycaemia. So, avoid blood sugar spikes and maintain optimal health by following these suggestions.
