People with diabetes can still eat carbohydrates as long as they avoid the bad ones, which are simple or refined carbohydratesThese bad 

carbohydrates make the symptoms of diabetes worse by increasing their blood sugar faster.

What diabetics should do instead is consume complex carbohydrates like oats, carrots, and broccoli.

They’re packed with nutrients and are digested slowly.

As a result, people with diabetes can still eat carbohydrates while managing their blood sugar levels.

We are often told what foods to limit or avoid to protect our heart, and that’s because past research focused on nutrients that increased heart disease risk, such as saturated fat and sodium. Newer research approaches healthy eating by researching foods such as vegetables, whole grains, and legumes that will reduce heart disease risk. This makes sense because we eat foods, not nutrients.”

Researchers in this current study examined dietary grain intake and the associated risk for premature coronary artery disease. They specifically looked at this risk in the Iranian population.

The study included over 2,000 participants, including 1,369 participants with premature coronary artery disease. These were compared with a control group of 1,168 participants who did not have premature coronary artery disease. Researchers used food frequency questionnaires and dietary assessments to examine participants’ whole grain intake and refined grain intake.
