Not advised: Diabetics need to review the sugar content of different fruit. Be careful with fruit with fewer than 10 grams of sugar content per hectogram eg. watermelon, melon, lemon, grape, (ADA has lists). Limit fruit with 11-20 grams of sugar like banana, pomegranate, orange, apple pear. Avoid fruit with 20 grams of sugar liked jujube, raisons. The American Diabetes Association is a good start.

Are grapes a good fruit option if you have diabetes?

Are grapes a good fruit option if you have diabetes?

Grapes are healthy: Grapes are a good source of fiber and antioxidants which are healthy foods for diabetics. Grapes do contain sugars (carbohydrates). Limiting the serving size to about 1 cup is a good 30 to 40 gram healthy carb snack. Beware of grape juice as they are concentrated with the sugar from the grapes and can be a much higher carbohydrate load.

Help please! Is fruit put into a powerful blender to make a smoothie good for diabetics?

Help please! Is fruit put into a powerful blender to make a smoothie good for diabetics?

Healthy smoothie.: I don't like your having just the fruit in there. I'd like to see a source of protein to help with overall absorption and balance. Perhaps protein powder to keep the calories down. Maybe blend it in skim milk. And I usually recommend adding some psyllium husk to get back some of the fiber benefit.

Can a diabetic patient (type 2) eat jujube and how much should she eat if she can?

Can a diabetic patient (type 2) eat jujube and how much should she eat if she can?

Difficult to say: If you are talking about the candy, then while it is possible to eat them, any kind of simple sugar like candy should be eaten in moderation, if at all. It would be difficult to answer how much, if any of it would be advisable to eat without knowing the diabetes history and how well controlled it is, and with what medication. Short answer, there is not set amount of what 'should' be eaten.

Is it possible to get diabetes from eating too much fruit?

Is it possible to get diabetes from eating too much fruit?

Not really: Type 2 diabetes is caused by Insulin resistance, usually as a result of obesity. The development of diabetes is going to be indepent of the exact foods you eat. Fruits can be high in natural sugar, but sugar itself does not cause diabetes. Obesity resulting from too many calories and weight gain can lead to diabetes. Other factors can also play an important role including family hisotry.
