In brief: High Carb

Bananas are not the best for glycemic index.
About 25 g of carb, about twice that of an apple.

In brief: Yes

"carbs" are ok, and fruits often have sugars in them. The important issue is that you wok with a dietician and eat a balanced diet.
The sugars and carbs are not "bad", and in fact, are important. However, too many carbs is bad.
