Hello. Thank you for your question.

Because oatmeal has a low glycemic index, it can help maintain glucose levels. This can be beneficial for people with diabetes, who need to manage their blood sugar levels.  Oatmeal is also heart healthy, which is important because diabetes patients are prone to heart disease.  Eating oatmeal with protein and without added sugar is best.  Read more from Healthline about Oatmeal and Diabetes: Copy/paste the link:
