How fast does sugar increase in the blood?
The trainer’s blood sugar is showing around 106 mg/dL on the glucose monitor before eating Rajma Chawal. But shortly after consumption, his sugar increased rapidly to close to 144 mg/dL. Then it comes down a bit and again reaches 135 mg/dL.
Can it be eaten in diabetes or not?
