Oatmeal has been touted as a nutritious breakfast option. But with its high carb amount, will it cause blood sugar spikes?
1) The oat, or AVENA SATIVA, is a cereal grain, and it can be rolled, crushed, or steel-cut to create the final oatmeal product. Oats are loaded with protein, vitamins, and dietary fiber.
2) 1 cup of oatmeal contains between 145 and 215 calories, and it supplies 5.75 grams of beneficial protein – a higher amount than most other grains.
3) Oats supply beneficial nutrients, including magnesium, zinc, phosphorous, folate, and vitamin B1, which has been shown to help reduce high blood pressure, lower blood sugar, and improve insulin levels.
4) Oatmeal also supplies polyphenol antioxidants called AVENANTHRAMIDES, anti-inflammatory compounds which can help to decrease blood pressure.
5) Oats contain BETA-GLUCAN, a soluble fiber which can slow the absorption of glucose into the bloodstream.
6) Avoid INSTANT oats, as they’ll have a higher glycemic index than traditional oats, and they’ll most likely be loaded with added sugars and unhealthy preservatives.
7) Avoid adding excessive amounts of full-fat milk, sugary additives, and dried fruits. They will all raise the calorie, carb, and sugar amount of your bowl of oatmeal.
8) For a healthy but flavorful addition, try a sprinkling of cinnamon. This sweet spice may reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes, aid in blood sugar regulation, and improve brain functionality.
9) It’s important to pair your oatmeal or other carb-heavy foods with a small amount of lean protein or healthy fats. They can help your system slow digestion and the introduction of glucose into the bloodstream.
10) If you suffer from high blood sugar, it’s best to limit your portion size of both oats and milk, and it’s important to monitor your blood sugar levels both before and after your meal.

Is oatmeal good for diabetes? We’re answering that question today, and I want to know your thoughts down in the comments section.
Welcome to my diabetes cooking channel! Today we’re talking about oatmeal, and I’ll show you how my oatmeal recipe does with my blood sugar. We’ll test both my Freestyle Libre sensor, as well as my blood reading to see what the glucose spike looks like.
We will also talk about portions for oatmeal, how to prepare oats best so your blood sugar spike is as minimal as possible, and other factors for the spike.
