Olive oil is naturally low in carbohydrates and rich in heart-healthy fats, which makes it an important dietary element for people suffering from diabetes. Monounsaturated fats are also present in olive oil, and studies have shown that this can have just as powerful of an effect over blood sugar control as a low-carb diet. Blood glucose levels need to be managed and balanced in order to prevent the onset of diabetes, and manage the condition. Polyphenolic compounds found in olive oil also act as antioxidants, which can improve overall health and prevent chronic diseases, including diabetes.
