    The doctor himself would give you the correct food groups to include in your mother's diet.
    Fibrous food include leafy vegetables, broccoli, cabbage, fruits and wholegrain cereals like broken wheat [ godhumai ravai ].
    Even dried legumes like chana, rajma, green peas etc. which have to be soaked overnight & cooked , are also good sources of fibre.

    Diabetics should eat oat porridge daily at breakfast as it helps with the blood sugar level for the day. (No sugar on the oats btw.) Oats are also high fiber.

    Any fruit or grain that is whole has good fibre content. Diabetics are allowed to oranges and grapefruits, I believe. Consuming vitamin C along with calcium boosts calcium absorption. Vitamin D (from those early morning walks in the rising sun) is essential for calcium absorption as well.

    Found this - Fibre

    For calcium increase the intake of yogurt and greens.

    For fiber as her to increase her intake of fruits and veggies and eat whole grains like Oats, ragi etc.

    My mom takes a fiber powder called "Fybogel" which is nothing but orange fiber and ispaghula husk. She takes it religiously every night mixed in a glass of water. Infact I had it during my India trip and it helped a lot in bowel movement.

    the best fibre rich food is CORN, nowadays steamed corn is available everywhere or u can take popcorn / cornflakes. fibre rich food cures the problem of constibation when taken at frequent intervals of time.
