My answer:
If you have diabetes, and you want to check if your diet is good for diabetes or not, ask yourself these 5 questions

1. Impact on Blood Sugar : How does your diet impact your blood sugar immediately post meal? Are you doing all you can in your diet to minimise the blood glucose spike after eating, your postprandial glucose spike?

2. Impact on Diabetes Pathophysiologies : How does your diet impact your pancreas health, how does your diet impact your insulin sensitivity? Is your diet worsening or reversing your body's insulin resistance?
