I see many posts on here about diabetic-friendly foods and diabetic-friendly this and diabetic-friendly that. I am curious as to what the idea of diabetic-friendly is? Is it lower sugar content? Is it lower carb content? Has anyone considered that just because it's lower carbs and sugar that there may be other additives making it not so health-friendly? I ask because I've been a very healthy type 1 for 31 years and I do not draw myself into a "diabetic friendly food box". I eat normal, standard foods but my key is that I eat everything in moderation.
So I pose the question—is the "diabetic-friendly label" really the best choice, or are there underlying additives that can be more harm than good?
