Patients frequently ask me if as a diabetic, is it safe to ready fruit. It’s not a simple question to answer. I received an update from Medical News that answers this question very nicely. The short answer is, yes, got can safely consume fruit add a diabetic. However, all things in moderation.  In general, if you are diabetic, you should be aware of calories.  You want to avoid fruits with a high glycemic index.   Otherwise, you do want fruit as part of your diet.  You also want to incorporate vegetables as well.
