Which Swallow Would You Recommend For A Diabetic by Younghacka(m): 10:13am On Jun 10
My Dad Is Diabetic And He Has Been Having Issues With A Choice Of Swallow.


Eba(Garri) And Loi-Loi(Fufu) Are Out Of The Equation Because Of Their High Starch Content.

He Was Using Plantain Flour But He Complained Of Constipation And He Stopped Using It. . . He Was Also Using Wheat Flour But He Stopped Due To Some Health Complications (I Think Something Concerning Blood Group O+).

Any Advice Or Experience Will Be Appreciated.


P.S: For Some Months Now He Has Not Eaten Swallow, Just Diabetic Rice And Other Food Suitable For Diabetics, But We Are Nigerians And Man Must Swallow.

Nothing beats asking a Medical Doctor.
The worst place to seek medical advice is the internet.

We Have Asked A Doctor But They Either Tell Us To Eat Wheat Or Eat Eba In Small Quantity, Anytime He Tries The Eba His Blood Sugar Skyrockets.

So I Thought Maybe Any Experience Person Here Might Help Out.

I wanted to suggest unripe plantain flour but you've already scratched it out. You can try couscous, just that it is not very popular here in the south but you can find it on shelves of malls and large stores. It's very cheap and easily available in the north.

I Don't Think Yam Flour Will Be A Good Idea. . . He Avoids Yam Because Of It's High Content Of 'Sugar'.

Yam flour is totally different from yam
Amala dudu is different from yam
And when buying beware of mixed yam flour.

Acha...common in jos plateau state, but you can find it in major markets in major towns in the country.

Very low glycaemic index, ideal for diabetics.

You are wrong. He should ask a Human nutritionist not a medical doctor. The human nutritionists are the nutrition experts. Everyone has his/her own speciality before you misadvice him.

The best for him is d plaintain flour tho but as he is reacting to it, he needs to find a way of probably "mixing" it wit maybe yam flour or very little cassava flour n see how it goes.

I said very little oooo, esp if it's gonna be cassava flour.

PS : If the hospital he's using has Dietetics department, it's better he visit d department anyway. This is what happens when people think Doctors "are all in all".

Hospital Swallow

Don't rely on social media health workers..

Try and go to the hospital and ask relevant questions there. You will get all answers to your questions ...
