Food lowering blood sugar?

The Diabetes Blog

This has NEVER made sense to me. If you know how insulin works, eating a particular food would not lower blood sugar.

However, some substances can reduce insulin resistance -- it has been shown in studies that I've seen that cinnamon can.

But that isn't the same.

Certain foods can also affect how fast other foods metabolize -- for example, dieticians usually tell us to eat our night snack with a serving of carb, protein and/or fat, so low down the absorbtion of sugar in the carb.

That's also why typical Mexican foods and Pizza are hard on diabetics. The fat contain slows the release of sugar in the carbs.
