n the blood, and the following are the best

oats per day

stimulate insulin receptors, and thus
better absorb sugar in the blood. Studies have shown that eating half
 a teaspoon of cinnamon daily
helps to reduce the level of sugar
Olive oil: It works to improve insulin sensitivity and stimulate
its action, because it is rich in
monounsaturated fats
Legumes: Like beans, where legumes contain a high
amount of carbohydrates, proteins, and fibers
which increase the feeling of satiety for a long time

 and thus stimulate its action, and studies have
shown that eating two servings of dairy daily

the chances of any inflammation to double diabetes problems or gain weight
