With diabetes, there are even more reasons to eat breakfast. Skipping it can lead to hypoglycemia. In addition, skipping breakfast can reduce your body’s insulin response. Both of these effects lead to overall higher blood sugar - the opposite of what you want! But what if fast food is your only choice?
What you eat is one of the most important factors in controlling diabetes, so avoiding fast food may be a priority. Still, fast food is almost sure to be an occasional or regular part of life since it is so convenient and great-tasting. The good news is that eating fast food with diabetes can be healthy if you make better choices.
