Diabetics

are allowed to eat a lot of different fruits given that they consume such in moderate amounts. Fruits are good sources of fiber, vitamins and other essential nutrients. The body can gain good nutrition from eating fruits. However, it is no secret that some fruit types contain high sugar content. There are only two choices for diabetics on this: eat small amounts of the fruit or completely avoid it. Likewise, there are also specific dried fruits and fruit juices which diabetics should avoid in their diet. If you want to avoid as many diabetes related health complications then stick with fruits that are low in sugar or do not pose threat to your blood sugar level.

Avoiding Specific Type of Fresh Fruits

Several fruits should be eaten sparingly or not all because of their sugar content. Some fruits included in this category include: mangos, grapes, custard apples, chickoo, as well as bananas. You can eat a banana with a meal but never make it two. If you really want to eat bananas and are afraid of what it might do to your condition, better just limit it to half a banana. Such serving already corresponds to 15g of carbohydrates.

Recommended diets for diabetics note that fruit servings should be limited to 15g of carbohydrates thus that’s about as far as you can go. Other fruits which you need to look out for because of high sugar content include: papayas, pineapple, apricots, kiwi, and watermelon. Limit their quantities or completely take them out of your diet. There are so many fruits that you can eat and are low in sugar. You shouldn’t suffer just because you wanted some fruity dosage.
