Diabetes is a health condition in which the insulin production by the pancreases is hampered or the produced insulin can no longer be used to help maintain the fluctuating sugar levels present in the blood. Thus, in order to maintain the glucose level present in the blood, the diabetic foods that are free of sugar, calories, preservatives, cholesterol, and carbohydrates are consumed by the majority of the public present all across the globe. The diabetic food helps the obese people lose weight at a faster rate by limiting the sugar and carbohydrate intake.
