Welcome to HealthcareMagic

Mutton, is a red meat which is high in saturated fat and will tend to increase the sugar levels in a diabetic patient.Generally foods which are high in fat and sugars are avoided in the diet for diabetic, as it will result in other complications by increasing sugar levels in the blood.
Instead of mutton, chicken (without skin) or fish can be taken which are relatively low in fat and calories.
