If you're living with diabetes, it's important to keep close tabs on the foods you eat so as to keep your symptoms in check. 

Now, one diet has been deemed the "gold standard" in diabetes care.

Additionally, U.S. News and World Report has ranked the Mediterranean Diet as the "Best Diet Overall" in its yearly assessment.
