Special Fruits to Avoid Diabetes

There are many fruits a diabetic can enjoy which do not significantly affect blood glucose levels. Some fruits may effect your sugar level also and should be avoided .

 Fruits are rich in nutrients.  Carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and fiber are found available in fruits. Fruits are naturally low in fat (except some fruits like avocados) and sodium. But fruits with high amounts of the sugars glucose and sucrose tend to have high GI values and should only be eaten in small amounts as they can affect blood glucose levels very quickly, such as oranges, grapefruit, papaya, plums, nectarines and peaches and should be avoided. However, sweetened applesauce, canned fruit with heavy sugar syrup, fruit punch, fruit drinks, and fruit juice drinks, regular jam, jelly, and preserves these are totally prohibited for the diabetic patient.
