Hyperglycemia: Overview and More

Carbohydrates are nutrients that the body breaks down into glucose. These can include sugar, starch, and fiber. People with diabetes must monitor their carbohydrate intake. Simple carbohydrates (table sugar, fruits, milk) are quickly digested into glucose, while complex carbohydrates (whole grains, vegetables) are digested more slowly, resulting in a more sustained rise in blood sugar .
