WebMD says that diabetes is a long-term disease that is caused by high levels of glucose (sugar) in the blood. Type 1 and type 2 are the two main types of diabetes that can happen. When a person gets type 1 diabetes, their bodies don't make enough insulin, a hormone that helps control how much sugar is in their blood. When someone gets type 2 diabetes, their body can't use the insulin it makes as well as it should.
Healthline says that one way diabetics can keep their condition under control is by eating a healthy, well-balanced diet. Because of this, you need to choose foods that are high in protein and fiber but low in sugar and saturated fat. People with diabetes might do well to eat chevon, which is another name for goat meat.

People with diabetes often think that foods with a lower glycemic index are better because they raise blood sugar more slowly and steadily.
