Many people still believe that eating too much sugar causes diabetes. This misconception arises because diabetes is diagnosed by measuring blood sugar (glucose). But dietary sugar is only part of the picture. A diet rich in certain high-carbohydrate foods -- those low in fibre and with a high glycemic index -- increases the risk of Type 2 diabetes, at least in those predisposed to it. Foods that seemed to pose the greatest risk are white bread, white rice, potatoes, and sugary soft drinks. In contrast, whole-grain breads and cereals (rich in fibre and with a lower glycemic index) appear to reduce the risk of diabetes. An excessive amount of carbohydrate-rich foods with a high glycemic index puts pressure on the pancreas to produce more of the hormone insulin, which stimulates the body's cells to take in and store glucose. Over time, the body may become resistant to insulin. In such insulin-resistant people, the cells become less and less sensitive to insulin. This is characteristic of Type 2 diabetes. Of course, not everyone on such a low-fibre, high-starch diet develops diabetes. There seems to be a genetic predisposition to diabetes, which may be exacerbated by this kind of diet. Obesity is probably the leading risk factor for Type 2 diabetes. Family history of the disease, advancing age, and lack of exercise are other important factors. The mineral magnesium has a protective effect against diabetes. A few studies have suggested that this mineral improves insulin sensitivity. But since whole grains are rich in magnesium, it's hard to say whether the proposed benefit is due to something else in the grain (notably its fibre) or the mineral.
