Diabetic patients are not permitted to eat anything and everything they see because they need to watch their sugar consumption.
You may say that fruits contain natural sugar, but some fruits have higher sugar content than others.
When taking fruits, consider the Glycemic index (GI), that is, how fast a food is absorbed and increases blood sugar level.
Diabetic patients should pay attention to fruits with low Glycemic index, fruits with a low GI will not trigger blood sugar levels.
One mistake that most diabetic patients make is to eliminate sugar from their body system, but that is not good because you’ll still be needing sugar to stay active and for energy.
Here are fruits you can take as a diabetic patient:
• Garden Egg
• Sour sop
• African pear
Note that fresh fruits have lower sugar content than dried fruits. So, try to get freshly plucked fruits from your consumption. They should replace fruit juices and syrups and are produced with chemicals that may not be good for your health.
