Sushi is an extremely popular food around the world. There is a wide variety of sushi choices out there, but when it comes to people with diabetes, not all sushi is created equal. On a plus side, sushi has a plenty of health benefits that are very important for diabetic people – omega-3 fatty acids in fish, as well as nori and wasabi, can help reduce inflammation and prevent stroke and heart disease, while ginger that is traditionally served with sushi can protect against respiratory viruses.

On the other side, sushi is often associated with white rice that can cause a sudden spike in blood sugar levels and with soy sauce that is high in sodium. Masago is another common sushi ingredient that is rich in sodium, and different mayos that although add so much flavor, add plenty of calories to your sushi dinner.

When you make sushi at home, you have a flexibility of creating exactly the way you want, so you get all the benefits and avoid all or most of the downsides. Here are a few diabetic-friendly sushi recipes that you can make at home and enjoy without being concerned about excessive carbs or calories.
