NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – A high-fat, carbohydrate-rich breakfast helps people with diabetes, the second type, control blood sugar levels throughout the day, according to a recent study.
Experts attributed the significant rise in blood sugar that followed breakfast due to clear insulin resistance in the morning in patients with diabetes, the second type, according to the site "Consulto" on Tuesday.
Typical Western breakfast foods such as cereals, oatmeal, toast and fruits are rich in carbohydrates, the study said, noting that eating a low carbohydrate meal and high fat or something in the morning is a simple way to prevent this large increase.
It reduces the complications of other diabetes and improves glycemic control throughout the day.
Eating a low-fat breakfast with high carbohydrate may be a practical way to target high blood glucose in the morning, the researchers say.
