Nowadays, a lot of people have been suffering from health conditions, one of which is diabetes. Diabetes is a condition where a person's blood sugar gets high because his body does not produce enough insulin. Proper diet should be considered to stay healthy always.
Choosing the right meal to eat has been a challenge for people with diabetes. They have to watch for the sugar content of each food to take. But then, a well-balanced diet should still be observed.
Here are some fruits that diabetics can eat without worrying.
Raspberries, blackberries and cranberries are low-sugar fruits that you can have to watch your sugar intake if you are more of a fruit person. Some low to medium sugar content fruits are papaya, melon, watermelon, peaches, strawberries, apples and blueberries. You should not devour these fruits since you might have a sudden increase in sugar. Eating these fruits needs a bit of discipline.
You should also watch yourself from plums; Kiwis, pears, pineapple and oranges for these fruits have fairly high sugar content. And please beware from cherries, grapes, tangerines, pomegranates, mangoes, bananas and some dried fruits like prunes, dates and raisins because they have very high sugar content.
