Q. Can people with diabetes eat flaxseed?
A: Yes. Flaxseed is packed with nutrients that help in the fight against diabetes. Flaxseed lignans and fibre protect against the development of diabetes and assist those with diabetes in controlling their blood sugar levels. Dietary intake of ALA is associated with a modest reduction in diabetes risk and may help to increase insulin sensitivity.
