Calorie content will be reduced to 76 kcal. The glycemic index after heat treatment will increase to 50. The number of bread units will be equal to 1.3.
All porridge is well saturated. But when “sugar disease” should be careful.
After all, cereal is a source of a large number of complex carbohydrates. They contribute to the slow growth of serum sugar.
In healthy people without problems with metabolism, carbohydrates are immediately bound to insulin. The hormone contributes to the fact that the tissues absorb glucose. It becomes a source of energy. But in diabetics, eating porridge can lead to prolonged hyperglycemia.
Completely refuse yachki undesirable. She is the source of:

No less important for endocrine disorders has a caloric intake, vitamin composition of food. Patients should receive all necessary substances with products. Only this will allow to preserve health and minimize the consequences of the negative effect of glucose on the body.
In diabetes mellitus type 2 barley grits are allowed to use in limited quantities. When it enters the body begins to increase glucose. Therefore, the state of health may deteriorate. The reaction will depend on how insulin is produced in the patient's body. For some, it can compensate for increased sugar fairly quickly, for others, high values will persist for several days.
Benefit and harm
Having decided to refuse cereals, to prevent hyperglycemia, the patient should know that he is losing. Many of the substances that make up the barley cereal bring tangible benefits to the body. For example, vitamins of group B:
- improve the nutrition of brain cells,

Patients with gluten intolerance include this cereal in the menu is prohibited.
After all, the harm from the impact of grain will be significantly more significant than the intended benefits. Patients may experience bloating and diarrhea. Such a state is due to the fact that the organism does not perceive the indicated substance.
Kashi with gestational diabetes
Doctors advise expectant mothers to adhere to the principles of proper nutrition. In the diet must be porridge. They perfectly saturate the body. From the cereal mother and baby get many of the necessary vitamins and minerals.
If a woman has gestational diabetes, the situation changes. The diet has to be revised. And to the maximum exclude carbohydrates. Pregnant women must do everything necessary so that their blood glucose decreases. Otherwise, the child may be born with multiple problems.
If the disease has progressed in the early stages, the likelihood of developmental defects cannot be excluded. Violations that occur in the 2 half of pregnancy, lead to an increase in body weight of the child. Some babies have breathing problems after birth, they suffer from hypoglycemia.
Low Carb Diet
Barley grain is considered a good source of vitamins, it has a beneficial effect on digestion.
But to reduce the sugar content in the blood with the help of a product that contains a large amount of carbohydrates, of course, is impossible. Therefore, endocrinologists advise to limit the consumption of cereals.
If you adhere to the principles of low-carbohydrate nutrition, then over time it will turn out to forget about hyperglycemia. After all, the body will not receive foods that cause the growth of glucose. When digesting croup, long chains of sugars are formed. Therefore, for the diabetic body, there is no fundamental difference between eating buns and porridge. In the first case, the glucose concentration will increase instantly, in the second - slowly. But the final result will remain the same.
For several hours after taking the yachts, the sugar will exceed the rate established for the patients. You can verify this by checking the fasting glucose concentration and after meals. Changes in blood parameters are better tracked over time. This will allow you to understand when the level becomes maximum. Frequent inclusion of barley porridge in the diet, unfortunately, will lead to hyperglycemia.
Yachka - what kind of cereal?
Barley is often confused with barley, because both of these grains are made from barley. The difference is that barley grits are made by crushing the kernel of barley, and pearl barley by grinding it.
During the process of crushing, more fiber is retained in the product, and the croup is more purified from flower films and any impurities.
Therefore, yachka is considered more tasty and useful than barley. It is not divided into varieties, but is classified according to the size of crushed elements - No. 1, No. 2 or No. 3.
Barley belongs to the family of cereals and is among the most ancient cultivated plants. For the first time he was cultivated in the Middle East about 10 thousand years ago. In nature, barley in the wild grows in Central Asia, the Caucasus, Turkey, Syria. This is a very unpretentious plant with a high rate of ripening.
In our country, only 100 years ago, dishes from this cereal were considered festive. No significant feast in the family of landowners or wealthy peasants could not do without barley porridge.
For such a strong and large-scale pathology, like diabetes mellitus, disorders of carbohydrate metabolism and circulation of fluids in the body are characteristic. Therefore, patients are often diagnosed with a disorder in fat and protein metabolic processes.
This explains the reason for the need to eat sick foods, preferably of plant origin, which contain the minimum amount of light carbohydrates and maximum fiber.
Thus, it turns out to control the level of sugar in the body, maintaining the principle of proper nutrition.
In the menu of elderly diabetics, yachka should be in one of the first points, because it is the record among the cereals in the content of manganese, iron and potassium.
Due to the high content of dietary fiber porridge from yachts perfectly and fully absorbed by the body, but at the same time a person feels saturated for a long time. Glucose does not increase and the simultaneous effect of therapy and prevention is obtained.
Barley was extremely popular from ancient times to the beginning of the 20th century and was considered a very expensive and high-quality product. Nowadays, the yachka is undeservedly forgotten, and rice and buckwheat took its place.
Since yachka held the lead for many centuries, many interesting facts are known about her:

Frequent use of large amounts of barley porridge can lead to obesity. Also, the preparation of yachts not on water, but on milk or cream can lead to the appearance of extra pounds. Weight gain is due to the high nutritional value of the product, so that this does not happen, barley cereal should be eaten no more than 3 to 4 times a week.

Doctors advise with caution to eat barley porridge with diabetes. What is the rate of yca consumption in type 2 diabetes? The glycemic index of cereals is 50. This is an average value, which means that a person with diabetes can afford no more than 2-3 times a day porridge.
But all the good should be a healthy measure. Every day and a little bit yachka, undoubtedly, is useful, while it gives an excellent effect. But fanaticism can upset the delicate balance, and the body will react back. Replacing it with many products that also contribute to the diet, but less affordable, not worth it.
People with individual features of the body, who express hypersensitivity to this product, it is better to abandon its use.
