Fruits For Diabetes: All You Need To Know

Eating fruit is a delicious way to satisfy hunger and meet daily nutritional needs. However, most fruits contain sugar, which raises questions about whether they are healthy for people who have diabetes. Is fruit unhealthy for people with diabetes? This article will look at what you need to know about fruit and diabetes. Contents of this article: What is fruit? Most people can probably name several fruits such as oranges and apples, but not know why they are fruits. Fruits contain seeds and come from plants or trees. People eat fruits that are stored in many ways - fresh, frozen, canned, dried, and processed. But aren't tomatoes and cucumbers also fruits because they have seeds? There are many foods that are classed as fruits that may surprise some people. Tomatoes, cucumbers, avocados, peas, corn, and nuts are all fruits. It's fine to think of tomatoes and cucumbers as vegetables rather than fruits, however. What's important is how much energy (calories) and nutrients each food has.

    Hey all,
    I've never been on this sub before, but I'm really worried about a friend of mine who has Type 1 Diabetes and I'm hoping you can help me out. My friend was recently diagnosed (a few months ago) and has been getting drunk. We're both in college, and enjoy our share of partying. She's been drinking less then before she was diagnosed, but she still drinks. She's out tonight and she just called me SMASHED. I'm not with her and I'm very worried. Everything I have found online has said that diabetic people shouldn't drink at all (or only up to 2 drinks), but she told me that as long as it's only occasionally it's fine. What happens if she gets drunk? I told her to keep me posted about when she gets home, but is there something else I can/should do tonight? I think I'll talk to her tomorrow about it in general, but I'm more worried for the immediate repercussions about her getting really drunk tonight. As someone who doesn't have Diabetes, I don't want to be pushy because I don't understand, so how worried should I be? Is it okay for Type 1's to get really drunk occasionally? How do I help make sure she's safe when I'm out with her (and when I'm not)?
    I'd appreciate any feedback! Thanks in advance.

    There's nothing wrong with drinking when you have type 1, provided that you learn how alcohol works for you and your BG. I went from drinking Coors Light to Michelob Ultra, because they're almost half the carb content, and I know exactly when and how much my BG will drop once I stop drinking.
