    Oatmeal has a low glycemic index plus it is high in fiber and many studies have reveal that it can help you maintain glucose levels. But you gotta be careful cause prepackaged and instant oatmeal can be loaded with sugar and sweeteners that won't work for your diabetes so read the label before using it.

But not just oatmeal is important you need to keep your diet as healthy as possible and exercise daily. can be a very useful app there you can keep track of you daily foods, calories, exercise and nutrients (including sugars) so you can be sure you are giving your body exactly what it needs to stay healthy besides you can get help from nutrition experts online.
