Food Price Hikes Hits Those With Diabetes

Two recent reports found that when food prices for healthy foods (veggies, fruits and low-fat milk) go up, so do blood sugar levels. Why? Because eating healthy can be expensive and so people opt for less expensive, unhealthier foods to compensate, HealthDay.Com writes. This is bad for diabetics who already have elevated blood sugar levels.
