I’ve seen diabetic-friendly foods at the supermarket, but they’re pretty pricey. Are they really necessary?

“You don’t need to buy foods that are specially designed to be lower in sugar,” says Jackie Newgent, R.D., author of The All-Natural Diabetes Cookbook (American Diabetes Association). Many people incorrectly believe that sugar causes or worsens diabetes. It’s really the total number of carbs you eat—whether from a slice of chocolate cake or a big plate of pasta—that affects blood glucose levels the most. “If you focus on whole grains and fresh fruits and vegetables, buying and eating healthy food can be inexpensive and tasty,” says Newgent.
