According to “Healthline”, Diabetes is a chronic condition characterized by elevated blood sugar levels, and diet plays a crucial role in its development.
While it’s important to note that various factors contribute to diabetes, including genetics and lifestyle, certain foods are known to impact blood sugar levels and increase the risk of developing diabetes.
Below are some of the foods that can cause diabetes if consumed excessively.
Highly Processed Foods
Diets rich in highly processed foods, such as sugary snacks, sodas, and refined carbohydrates, have been associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes.
These foods often lead to rapid spikes in blood sugar levels, putting stress on the body’s insulin response.
Regular consumption of sugary drinks, including sodas and fruit juices, has been linked to an elevated risk of diabetes.
The high sugar content in these beverages can contribute to insulin resistance, a key factor in the development of type 2 diabetes.
Red and Processed Meat
Studies suggest that diets high in red and processed meats may contribute to diabetes risk. These meats are often associated with higher levels of saturated fats and heme iron, which can have adverse effects on insulin sensitivity.
Artificial trans fats, commonly found in partially hydrogenated oils used in processed and fried foods, have been shown to increase the risk of type 2 diabetes. These fats not only contribute to insulin resistance but also promote inflammation in the body.
