If you know someone who has diabetes and need help convincing them to go plant based you can share this: The American Diabetes Association is now on board, listing plant-based eating as one of the dietary patterns acceptable for the management of the condition.
“The vegan diet is a plants-only diet that excludes all meat and any animal ingredients (such as dairy and eggs), and a vegetarian diet excludes meat, poultry, fish, and seafood. This plant-forward way of eating is associated with improved health outcomes and decreased risk for a variety of chronic diseases. Specifically, plant-based diets have been linked to a decreased risk for developing kidney disease in people with type 2 diabetes, and decreased risk of mortality in people with chronic kidney disease. “
“If you have diabetes and/or kidney disease and you’re curious about how a vegan diet can fit into your lifestyle, then read on for guidance on planning vegan meals that are diabetes- and kidney-friendly. “
“The good news—plant-based protein options are also often high in fiber, which can help you manage your blood glucose (blood sugar). “
