Are Eggs Good for People With Diabetes?
Eggs have an inconsistent reputation.
Sometimes they are reported to be healthy, while some studies backtrack on that finding. For those who have diabetes, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) states eggs are a suitable food, as they have a low glycemic index score and have a lower impact on a person’s blood sugar level. While consumption of eggs was once thought to increase the risk of heart disease, new research shows that cholesterol in food does not have much of an impact on raising a person’s overall levels. Saturated fats, on the other hand, can elevate bad cholesterol and raise a person’s risk for diabetes later on life. More on this report is available at Medical News Today.
