What fruits can be eaten by a diabetic person?


Deeksha Khare says

Fruits are high in Fructose but as it ripens, it changes into Glucose. The quantity and choice of the fruits depend on your blood sugar control and medicines you have been prescribed. Take care to select fruits with low glycemic load and don't take canned or sugar-coated fruits in your diet. To retain its nutritional value and minimize the glucose content, try to avoid juices. Consume your fruits along with the peel to improve fiber content. Fruits are rich in soluble fiber which is known to reduce cholesterol and they are rich in phytochemicals.
