A low glycemic diet may improve metabolic control in type 2 diabetes, but the debate continues. Fruits, despite the fructose they contain, may also lower the glycemic index, as well as its consumption has been associated with a reduction in A1c levels and can positively influence HDL cholesterol, blood pressure and risk of coronary heart disease in general. There is no relationship between fat intake and A1c. On the consumption of alcohol has been reported that moderate alcohol consumption is associated with a lower prevalence of metabolic syndrome, although there is information that relates to the A1c. This article reviews the published evidence on the effect of consumption of fruits, fats and alcohol on metabolic control in diabetics.

Keywords : Glycemic index; Type 2 diabetes; Fruits; Fatty acids; Alcohol.
