Hi I want to know if the sugars and carbs found in fruits are bad for people who have diabetes. All fruits have sugar and will it increase sugar level?

I know that sugar causes cavity and fruits have sugar... But are they the same sugar that causes cavity?
No: You need to exercise your own self-control and consciously think of eating healthy things. Frankly, there is absolutely no reason to ever eat a twinkie - it has absolutely no nutrition. Read the packaging - it is all chemicals. As for sweets in general, healthier sweets like fruit, raisins, or even rare consumption of crackers and some cookies may be ok. Always keep in mind the risk of diabetes. ...Read more
