    8

    If you have diabetes, you probably know how important your diet is for keeping your blood sugar levels steady. But that doesn’t mean you have to stick to a strict diet. Instead, think about developing a healthy diet plan with lots of different foods. Here are some of the best choices to keep your blood sugar levels low:

    Avocado
