QUESTION: Does brown rice raise your blood sugar level?
ANSWER: Hi there,
I think that it would be better for you to start eating brown rice, because it is not causing elevation in the blood glucose concentration at all.
On contrary, the brown rice keeps the glucose in your body within the reference ranges, because it is made of complex carbs.
When some food contains complex carbs, it is very difficult for the human body do digest it fast. In other words it takes more time for that food to be digested.
Therefore, the glucose component of in the brown rice, will be released constantly, which will result in normal blood glucose levels.
Because of the constant release of glucose, there will be no spikes in your glucose concentrations, which of course will ensure you better blood glucose regulation.
In purpose to remind you, I will mention that there are other foods, which contain complex carbs and which you can use in your diabetic diet.
Amongst them, I would suggest millet, still oats and others. The combination of those meals will provide you marvelous components of a very good diabetic meal plan and an excellent blood glucose regulation.
