Because the body turns carbohydrates into glucose, eating carbohydrates makes blood sugar levels rise. But that doesn't mean you should avoid carbohydrates if you have diabetes. Carbohydrates are a healthy and important part of a nutritious diet.
Some carbohydrates have more health benefits than others, though. For example, whole-grain foods and fruits are healthier choices than candy and soda because they provide fiber, vitamins, and other nutrients.

¼ cup sherbert or sorbet
2 chochlete chip cookies
½ cup sugar-free pudding (1/4 cup regular)
2 inch square of brownie or cake without frosting
1TBSP jelly, jam, syrup or honey
Eating a healthy diet helps you control your diabetes and reduces your risk of diabetes-related conditions, such as heart disease and stroke. Eating consistent amounts of foods containing carbohydrates every day helps you control your blood glucose level. This consistency each day is what matters most. Wide variations are difficult for the body to handle. Blood glucose levels that are outside the normal limits are the ones that cause long-term complications
