The benefits of canned seafood for diabetes

Diabetes is a chronic condition that occurs when the body cannot make or use insulin properly. There are mainly two types of diabetes: type 1, which usually begins in childhood, adolescence, or early adulthood; and type 2, which usually begins in adulthood. While type 1 diabetes develops when the pancreas doesn’t produce any insulin, type 2 diabetes develops when the pancreas doesn’t produce enough insulin or the body can’t use it as it should.

Canned seafood for people with diabetes

Both fish and shellfish are high-protein and low-carbohydrate foods, so they can be an excellent option for anyone who needs to control their blood sugar levels. Additionally, these foods are a source of omega-3 fatty acids that can help prevent diabetes complications by reducing inflammation in the body.

Therefore, canned seafood is an effective way for people with diabetes to manage their diet by providing a healthy source of protein and fat without compromising taste or quality.
