(BlackDoctor.org) — Everyone knows you have to cut back on or eliminate certain foods once you’ve been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.

But there are also foods that can help with managing type 2 diabetes, either by providing powerhouse portions of nutrients or by helping quell the ebb and flow of your blood sugar levels.

“Diabetes superfoods are foods that are low-fat and high in nutrients like vitamins, minerals, and fiber,” says dietitian Sue McLaughlin, RD, CDE, a certified diabetes educator and president of health care and education for the American Diabetes Association.

Making these foods part of a comprehensive diabetes diet can make a real difference in managing diabetes.
