1. Carbonated Drinks; this is one drink you should never drink as a diabetic patient for your own good. Reason being that all carbonated drinks contain very high level of added sugar and as such, the more you drink soft drinks, the more you pump in sugar into your blood stream and doing this as a diabetic patient can be considered suicidal. It is for this reason that diabetic patients should completely abstain from taking carbonated drinks for safety purposes and if you care about managing your blood sugar level.

2. Fruit Juices; I am sure you have heard that taking fruits can go a long way in regulating a person's blood sugar level? This is true but it is not so for people who always take fruit juices. If you are suffering from diabetes and you keep drinking fruit juices claiming that it would help kick back your blood sugar level since it is made of fruits, then you could be worsening your condition. Reason being that most fruit juices are no different from carbonated drinks. They have preservatives, added sugar and even many other unhealthy ingredients that can raise a person's blood sugar level. So make sure you abstain from fruit juices for your own good instead embrace fruits that have low glycemic index like avocado, cucumber etc.
