A:

In general, you should choose foods low in glycemic index while high in key nutrients like calcium, potassium, fiber, magnesium, and other vitamins, according to the American Diabetes Association.

  • Beans.
  • Whole grains.
  • Nuts.
  • Fat-free yogurt and milk.
  • Sweet potatoes.
  • Berries.
  • Dark green leafy vegetables.
