Should a diabetic forego eating fruit?
No. Because, then you may run the risk of developing other forms of diseases brought about by lack of vitamins.
You only need to be wise when selecting your options, knowing fully well that some fruits are higher in sugar content than the others.
What is the best time to eat fruits for diabetics?
While digesting food, the stomach squeezes and mixes its contents and only when solid food is converted to a thick soup does it pass into the intestines, where sugar is absorbed immediately to cause a high rise in blood sugar. If you eat fruits along with other vegetables and rice or wheat, that contain slowly-digested foods, it prevents the blood sugar levels from rising quickly. So, eat your fruits with other foods, not alone as snacks
