I noticed that my blood sugar seemed to be lower after eating cucumbers. I found this possible explanation buried in the internet:www.top10homeremedies.com/kitchen-ingredients/top-10-health-benefits-cucumbers.htmlCucumbers have a special hormone that the pancreas utilizes to produce insulin. Insulin helps the cells convert carbohydrates into energy, which is very beneficial for diabetics. If carbohydrates are not converted into energy, your blood glucose level will rise.
Additionally, cucumbers have a glycemic index rating of 0. This means diabetics can eat cucumbers freely without worrying about their blood sugar.
