Hello, I’m Ty Mason from TheDiabetesCouncil.com, researcher, writer and I have type 2 diabetes. Today I’m going to answer the question, is liver good for diabetes. But before we get into that, make sure you download my free diabetes management book which also includes a diabetes grocery shopping guide (foods to eat and avoid) and other tips to better manage your blood sugar to avoid complications.
Organ meats just have never been as popular in the United States as they are in many parts of the world. There are a few places where liver is eaten in the US. Foie gras (from duck or goose liver) is available in many fine dining restaurants. You are likely to see pâté on the menus of French restaurants in American. But other than that, I don’t think liver is really a staple in the US like it is in some countries.
I guess this is one of those foods where there really aren’t many people in between. For the most part people just love liver or they hate it. Which camp are you in? Personally, I can’t even stand the looks of liver for consumption. It may be that I use chicken livers often for catfish bait and I just can’t imagine eating it.
Today, as far as our research is concerned we are going to discuss the most common liver consumed in America, that is the beef liver. I know there are many other types of liver that people consume like pork, chicken, deer, goat and so on. But we are talking about beef liver.
Beef liver is considered by many as a powerhouse as far as nutrition goes. One serving of beef liver contains 130 calories with only 3 carbs and no sugar. You get a great deal of protein in liver and the Vitamin A is through the roof! One of the reasons many people eat liver is for the iron. Liver is very rich in iron as well as zinc and Vitamin B12.
If I were to eat liver, my favorite numbers would the GI and GL both are 0.
Is liver good for diabetes? There was a time when those with diabetes were told to stay away from all red meats and especially organ meat. But times have changed. Liver is a great addition to your diabetes plate. It truly is a powerhouse for those of us with diabetes.
