@gollum,
Sadly, yes. Varies from one fruit to another, but watch out for pineapple.

@roger,
Roger-
Thank you. Other than pineapple, how can I tell which fruits are good and which are bad?

@gollum,
You might do a google search on Glycemic Index.

One thing to keep in mind: glycemic index is not the only consideration. With diabetes, one still needs a reasonably healthy diet, and sometimes the carbohydrates simply cannot be avoided. Always that trade off, eh?

@gollum,
Here are a couple references that will help you:



This is the glycemic index for some everyday foods. They're arranged from low to high, with the actual GI Value shown at the right of the food. Click on a category you want to see.

@gollum,
It’s a myth that eating sugar can cause diabetes. There is so many other factors associated with diabetes such as over eating with lack of activity, Family heridity. Now, if you have some of the risk factors for diabetes or you are pre-diabetic, then eating too much fruit can be bad for you because of the natural sugar levels. Talk to your dietitian about the amount, frequency and types of fruits you should eat.

@gollum,
This is just a myth. There sugar is fructose and the cause off diabetes is gluctose.

I hope this helps.

@mickey513,
Hi guys,

Fruits are essential for health. All fruits are not good for diabetes patient because there is sugar in it. Specially juicy fruits helps to increase the sugal level in our body. So the doctor now suggested that papaya is very helpful for diabetes patient.

Best regards

@gollum,
Whole fruit protect against diabetes,but juices of fruit is risk factor

Eating grapes,apples,blueberries and pears cuts the risk but drinking of fruit juice can increase your diabetes.Researchers including a team from Harvard School of Public Health in the US
By Research fruit bluberry cut the risk by 33 % while raisins and grapes cut 19 %.Apples and pears cut 13 % lower.

It is becouse of Fluids pass through the stomach to the intestine more rapidly than solids. So, Juices affects rapidily on diabetes.So, You can eat fruit but not much fruit juices.

@stevem13,
I very much agree. Fruit is usually good, and their juices are almost always very bad.
