Here is one drink you MUST avoid, if you desperately want to avoid diabetes and live longer
Diabetes type 2 risk could be lowered by making some diet or lifestyle changes. You could prevent high blood sugar symptoms by avoiding this breakfast drink. Are you at risk of diabetes signs and symptoms?

Diabetes is caused by the pancreas not producing enough of the hormone insulin, or the body not reacting to insulin. Without enough insulin, the body struggles to convert sugar in the blood into usable energy.

But making some dietary changes could slash your chances of developing the high blood sugar condition. Drinking fruit juice could be raising your risk of diabetes symptoms, it’s been claimed. Even 100 per cent fruit juice could be instigating some unwanted signs of diabetes, she said.

Instead, try swapping your fruit juice for a flavoured soda water, added the nutritionist.

“While fibre-rich whole fruits are considered healthy carbohydrates for people with diabetes, fruit juice is another story,” Bauer told Everyday Health. People with diabetes should avoid drinking juice, even 100 per cent fruit juice.
“Fruit juice contains more nutrition than soda and other sugary drinks, but the problem is that juices have concentrated amounts of fruit sugar and therefore cause your blood sugar to shoot up.

Plus, sipping fruit juice doesn’t fill you up the same way that eating a piece of fruit does, because juice doesn’t have the same fibre that’s found in whole fruit. If you want a refreshing drink, go for zero-calorie plain or naturally flavoured seltzer with a spritz of lemon or lime.”

Diabetes UK said it’s best to stick to one small glass of fruit juice in a single day – the equivalent to 150ml. But, you should watch your carbohydrate intake and subsequent blood sugar levels after drinking the fruit juice.

Registered dietitian, Lucy Jones, speaking on behalf of the British Fruit Juice Association, said: “There is no evidence to suggest a small 150ml glass of fruit juice increases risk of diabetes.

“In fact, fruit juice drinkers typically have healthier weights and overall are more likely to achieve their 5-a-day target. Fruit juice also provides vitamin C, folate and potassium. The reality is that diabetes risk is strongly associated with body fat and genetic predisposition, rather than any single foodstuffs.”

Diabetes patients should also take care when drinking alcohol, Bauer warned. Even a small glass of wine can interfere with blood sugar levels, so it’s important to drink own moderation.

‘Moderation’ is generally understood to be no more than one serving a day for women, and no more than two for men.
