Suffered from diabetes means you have to keep the intake of food every day, so that blood sugar levels do not rise. It includes also select the type of fruit included in your diet, even though the various types of vitamins and minerals in it is good for health.
One of them is a specialist in internal medicine, Dr. Aris Wibudi mentions a few examples of fruit that is not good for consumption by diabetics such as mangoes, bananas, dates, longan, and durian.
Especially for dates, the research has been done by the Society of Endocrinology Indonesia (Perkeni), that eating five pieces at once can increase blood sugar levels, said Dr. Aris as reported by Liputan6.
The glycemic index of these fruits are also high and can raise blood sugar quickly after consumption.
As a substitute for these fruits, diabetics are more encouraged to eat vegetables because it is safer and consists of complex carbohydrates. Diabetics can also find the need for vitamins and minerals in vegetables.
