Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It becomes more so for diabetics who have to keep the blood sugar levels on an even keel. A wholesome breakfast ensures high energy levels throughout the day. It stops you from binging on calorie-rich junk food mid-morning. Even if you wake up with high sugar levels, do not skip breakfast. These days, foods that have a low glycemic index are a good option.

Diabetes is a condition that results in elevated blood sugar levels (also called high blood glucose or high blood sugar). The sugar spike is due to an impaired insulin hormone, that triggers abnormal metabolism of carbohydrate and leads to a subsequent hike in sugar levels.
