Dietary advice for people with diabetes has changed over the last few decades. The latest scientific advice from the European Association for the Study of Diabetes guidelines for diabetes support a moderate intake of ‘free sugars’ as part of a healthy balanced diet by stating that if desired and if blood glucose levels are satisfactory, moderate intakes of free sugars (up to 50 g/day) may be incorporated within the diet of individuals with Type-1 and Type-2 diabetesT1.. Achieving and maintaining a healthy body weight through diet and physical activity is most important for people with diabetes. For individual dietary advice, people should consult their healthcare professional.
