Is corn good for diabetes?

Generally NOT! It converts quickly and raises glucose levels a lot.

maybe i think u better ask the doctor about that he may help u!!!

I would not make a meal on it. As with any other food you must eat it in moderation. As far as being good for you every food has a nutritional value. With diabetes you must be careful of how much protein, carbs, sodium, etc. you consume. Everything must be measured out.

Read all about diabetes & food here:

I have diabetes myself!
Greetings from Germany...

it is a starchy vegetable. I eat corn but i count it into what i allow myself for a meals worth of carbs. I usually eat about 45-60 grams at a meal (I am a type 1 and take insulin to cover that)

Alan S
Depends how much of it you eat, what time of day you eat it, what methods you use to manage your diabetes - and what type you are.

As to whether it's OK for you - test your BGs an hour after you eat it. If you're high, reduce the portion next time. if not - great, buy more corn.

General rule of thumb for diabetics is low carbs/low GI. Corn is high. If it were very little, say in a corn salsa, that would be okay, otherwise, go for the broccoli or green beens. They would be a much better choice.

Arsh S
It should be avoided since it has a lot of sugar in it.
SO should carrots.

Dorothy and Toto
Corn, potatos and rice are all starches that turn quickly to sugar.

Action Plan for Diabetes

1. Nutrition is the key to getting rid of the cravings. Once you learn about nutrition (#6) and also cleansing out the toxins in the body by doing a colon, liver, and kidney cleanse. You'll be on your way to a healthy life.

2. Keep in mind that the goal of diabetic treatment and self-care is to restore blood sugar levels close to normal and to correct related metabolic disorders. One of the best ways to accomplish this is by eating small, frequent meals throughout the day that emphasize fresh, organic foods that are low on the glycemic scale, such as raw and lightly steamed vegetables, low sugar whole fruits, nuts, seeds, whole grains and legumes, yams, wild fish, poultry, lean cuts of beef, bison meal, lamb or veal.

3. Minimize or eliminate your intake of simple carbohydrates and all sugars, as well as tobacco and processed "junk foods." In addition, reduce your intake of alcohol and caffeine. Both alcohol and caffeine could be enjoyed on special occasions, rather than daily or even weekly habits.

4. Remain hydrated; drinking adequate quantities of pure water is essential for all aspects of your health. Must drink about a gallon of water a day to maintain health. Your body is craving this much more than caffeine and sugar.

5. Engage in regular light exercise and stress reduction because they are KEY to maintaining lower levels of blood sugar.

6. Consider supplementing with nutrients such as B-complex vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin E, CHROMIUM PICOLINATE, magnesium, potassium, essential fatty acids, CoQ10, alpha lipoic acid, and vanadium.

7. Herbs such as astragalus, CINNAMON, bitter melon, fenugreek, raw garlic (one of the best for blood pressure), ginseng, Gymnema sylvestre, and nopal cactus, can also provide significant benefits.

8. If you have already developed Type I or Type II diabetes, combine the above self-care natural cures with professional care from a holistically oriented physician or other alternative health care practitioner. Particularly useful professional care therapies for treating and preventing diabetes include chelation therapy, food allergy testing, parasite testing and if necessary, cleansing, and oxygen therapy.

9. Prevention, if you are pre-disposed and managing a diabetic condition, is a life-long commitment. By committing to the guidelines above, you can significantly improve your symptoms, and, if you suffer from Type II diabetes, quite possibly reverse them altogether. Implementing diet and lifestyle changes can help improve your energy levels, and your confidence in your ability to experience greater health.

10. Watch the 8-minute non-profit video http://www.rawfor30days.com/view.html , about diabetes diet.

Not for mine. I love it but it raises my sugar to insane levels.

I don't think it's bad, but it does have a lot of carbs in it...

i have diabetes and i love corn but if you get canned sweet corn watch out your blood sugar will go through the roof

No....it turns to sugar....

As you can see from the following ,corn is a moderate veggie and a good source of fiber.
Just count your carbs . It's all about that.

Nutrition Information for Sweet Corn:
The following nutrition information is for one serving of sweet corn. That would be about one medium (6-3/4" to 7-1/2" long) ear of sweet corn, or 90 grams. This general information is for any variety of raw yellow sweet corn.
