Please note that the following is not to be taken as medical advice or opinion. I drink diluted lemon juice for hydration during our 104 degree F days in Adelaide. The juice is made by juicing lemons manually, so that all the fibre, and cells of the lemon are used. This watered down to about a 1 to 6. juice to water. This mix has no discernible effect on my blood sugar readings. In my diabetes education from long ago I recall a dietitian saying that having all the fibre of the citrus fruit in the juice helps to slow the absorption of the sugar from the citrus fruit thus reducing the effect on blood sugar compared to juice commercially prepared or prepared at home in a blender where the fibre is extracted. How lemons might affect other diabetics would depend on many factors as there are different types of diabetes, with different treatments and of course as individuals each person can have their own individual responses to lemons and indeed other foods. 62 Views View Upvoters Answer requested by Snorre Asbjrn Rubin , works at Region Hovedstaden Answere Continue reading >>
