Being diagnosed with diabetes is often associated with a severely restricted diet. Pasta, bread and desserts are considered forbidden as long-term exposure to high blood sugar levels can lead to damage to kidneys, eyes, nerves and cardiovascular system in diabetics.
However, there is space in a diabetic’s diet for an occasional piece of candy. Picking the right sweet is key to including it as a special treat or rare snack. Snacking on candy that includes fruit or nuts can actually help keep blood sugar levels from dropping too low between meals.
