Fruits with less sugar
Obviously food plays a more than important role in the lives of diabetics. High sugar intake can be catastrophic in your case, causing everything from extremely serious blood vessel failure to severe eye problems). ) Usually, forbidden foods for diabetes are similar to forbidden foods for cholesterol but in the case of fruit it is advisable to stop and make a special mention. In general, there are fruits for diabetics and others that it is better not to consume (or at least, not to do so in a habitual or exaggerated way). Logically, fruits with less sugar are those that a diabetic can consume in his day-to-day life with total tranquillity (always speaking in a very general way) but, before continuing, it is important to point out at this point the differences between the two types of diabetes.
Can the two types of diabetes be treated the same?
We have already said that there are two types of diabetes, with very different causes. Type 1 diabetes has a genetic origin and usually appears in childhood. It has nothing to do with our behaviour because it is a genetic fault that makes our body unable to generate insulin in a normal way. However, type 2 diabetes (which is a real epidemic in Western societies) is directly associated with unhealthy living habits and usually appears in adults, usually in people over 40. The prevention of this diabetes (which is directly associated with overweight and obesity) requires a healthy lifestyle. According to the WHO, sugar has become public enemy number one and soft drinks and other highly sugary artificial beverages directly influence the spread of this epidemic.
Mangoes, strawberries, tangerines are suitable fruits for diabetics
Type 2 diabetics have less difficulty managing their disease through diet alone. In some cases this is not possible, but in others it is. The key is to control the glycemic index of fruits and adapt your diet to this reality. Returning to the fruits that a diabetic can consume, we have to emphasize that low sugar fruits such as mango, strawberries, tangerines or red fruits are perfect to be incorporated into the diet of diabetics.
It should be borne in mind that fruit consumption is much more than just a question of taste. Fruits are a group of key foods, which provide us with many essential nutrients, from vitamins and antioxidants to minerals such as sodium or potassium, which are rare in other foods and essential for the proper functioning of our body. Fruit consumption is key to preventing diseases linked to the immune system and improving the quality of our blood. In the most extreme cases, diseases such as scurvy appear (in this case due to lack of vitamin C, so common in citrus fruits, such as tangerines, lemons and the benefits of oranges).
