Juicing for diabetics can be very helpful in controlling blood sugar ...
Generally, I advocate against adding fruit to green juice if one has a sugar intolerance or sensitivity. Anyone with diabetes should refrain from juicing fruit and simply focus their drinks on leafy greens, low sugar vegetables and sometimes low sugar fruit depending on the person. Although, it is up to the individual to determine what their tolerance level is for fruit given their own personal state of health.
... here I discuss the ins and out of the appropriate juice program for someone with diabetes ...
The best choices are above ground vegetables and leafy greens for diabetics who choose to go on a juice program. Because fruits contain fructose and can cause spikes in blood glucose levels, above ground vegetables and leafy greens are a wiser choice for diabetes. Nutrient-packed above ground vegetables and leafy greens are a way to get a variety of vitamins and minerals without the carbohydrates found in fruits. Also, because juicing removes much of the fiber contained in fruits and vegetables, by removing it you are effectively concentrating the sugar. This is precisely why a diabetic ought to focus on a low carbohydrate or no carbohydrate juice program.
Some vegetables are known to help manage diabetes. Asparagus may help the body regulate blood sugar levels. Cucumber, cauliflower, tomatoes, and brussels sprouts are good foods for diabetes management. Manganese may help in managing diabetes by lowering insulin resistance. Manganese may improve glucose metabolism. Parsley, carrots, cabbage, collard greens, endive, celery, beet greens, broccoli, and spinach are excellent sources of manganese. Blueberries contain manganese and are a great inclusion in a low sugar green juice program, depending on the individual's tolerance for fruit. Broccoli also contains vitamin C which may help prevent diabetes.
When juicing with diabetes, keep in mind that fruits can be consumed, but only in moderation and as long as the person is following their doctor’s instructions for controlling the blood glucose levels.
