Soot drinks can significantly increase the risk of diabetes. A recent study published in the BMC magazine showed that these sweet drinks lack healthy nutrients and produce more harmful effects than fruit and other foods containing fructose. Study lead writer Dr. John Sievenpiper is a researcher in the clinical nutrition and risk factor modification center in St. Petersburg. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto, Canada. “These results can help guide recommendations on important food sources for fructose in preventing and managing diabetes,” says Dr. Sievenpiper. “But the probative value is low and more high-quality studies are needed.”
Fruits are a kind of sugar that occurs naturally in foods like fruit, natural fruit juices, vegetables and honey. Fruits are added in large quantities to these beverages to make so sweet. Earlier studies have suggested that fructose plays an important role in the development of diabetes and heart disease. For the study, the research group analyzed 1
55 studies involving the effects of fructose sugar on blood glucose levels in people with and without diabetes.
Results revealed that foods containing fructose sugar do not have a harmful effect on blood sugar levels unless they are coated with excess calories and fats. In terms of nutrition, these sweet drinks add nothing to your body except empty calories. “Until more information is available, public health workers should be aware that harmful effects of fructose sugar on blood sugar appear to be mediated by energy and food sources,” the researchers wrote.
There are many natural ways to monitor your blood sugar levels. A study published in the International Journal for Vitamin and Nutrition Research found that a daily dose of 10 grams of fenugreek seeds soaked in hot water could help control type 2 diabetes.
