    Hi. This would depend to some extent on whether the patient has Type I or Type II diabetes. Type I diabetes is usually treated using insulin so the diet is very important and must work in with insulin injections. Type II diabetes is mostly treated with exercise and diet - typically what would be considered a normal healthy diet for most people. Other complications may also exist which could need separate treatment. Anyone with this question should be consulting a doctor and/or dietician for proper treatment as the diet and exercise program would best work if tailor made to the individual.
    Hope this helps.

    Three easy steps to manage your blood sugar with diet:

    1. Build your diet from fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains.

    2. Avoid the trouble makers: meats of all kinds, dairy products, and eggs.

    3. Keep added fats to a bare minimum.
