Is ghee bad for diabetes?


Deeksha Khare says

f the patient is obese and has deranged lipid profile, then diabetics have to be careful regarding the amount and nature of fat they consume daily.Amount of fat Diabetics can take 10–15 grams of visible fat/day which means the fat one adds to the food while cooking and not the hidden fat in the food itself. This makes 2–3 tsp of fat/day.Due to deranged lipid profile or obesity, saturated fats such as ghee, butter, vanaspati and coconut oil should be used in restricted amounts.Ghee isn't bad for diabetics, if taken in restricted amounts, but it isn't beneficial in lowering the blood sugar levels too. It just adds on to the calorie consumption of the person.
