Can diabetics eat fruits? This was one of the most frequently asked questions. Today the question is what foods are good for diabetics as research has put our worries about fruits raising blood sugar permanently to rest. So, what are the best fruits to eat if you are a diabetic?
As a diabetic you should eat fruits that are relatively low carb, have a relatively low Glycemic number and are relatively high in fibre. Let’s explore this in detail now.
- Low glycemic index fruits are best: This means apples, citrus fruits and berries are best for you. These fruits lower the rate of production of insulin in your body which means they have a low glycemic index. They are also low- carb foods, which means they are not converted into the dreaded sugars on metabolization and cause a sugar spike.
- Berries: They are the best fruits for diabetics. They are low in carbohydrates and have a low glycemic index of 20 – 45 GI. They are also exceptionally high in fibre which prevents the high sugar surge. In berries also raspberries and blackberries have fewer carbs and a lower glycemic index than blueberries.
- Stone fruits: Stone fruits are fruits that have a single large seed or “stone” in the middle with a sweet fleshy outer layer. Some of the common ones include cherries, peaches, plums, and apricots.
- Almonds: Almond, a dry fruit is also a superstar in the diabetic diet.
Which fruits should be avoided?
- Bananas are high in carbs and have an average glycemic index of 55 which can be much higher with super sweet bananas. So, eat only twice a week and stick to smaller-sized bananas.
- Cantaloupe, watermelon, and pineapple are examples of fruits that are very high in carbohydrates so you must eat them only occasionally.
- Fruit juices are high in sugar with a high glycemic index and they have no fibre. So, even a small quantity of juice can play haywire with your blood sugar levels. Plus, when you drink a fruit juice, you miss out on the many nutrients you’d imbibe in the actual whole fruit.
- Dry fruits are concentrates of sugar and should, therefore, be avoided by diabetics.
What is even better is that fruit is a natural blood thinner. So, eating more fruit may prevent cardiovascular problems in both diabetics and non-diabetics. Remember to eat fruit earlier in the day as this will prevent a sugar spike as a diabetic. Also, mind your portion size. It is also best to have fruit as a meal with your meat and veggies, rather than as a standalone portion. This prevents sugar spikes. Most recent studies are also confirming that a diet high in fruit can work best for reversing type 2 diabetes, while also taking care of high blood pressure and a fatty liver.

HIV/AIDS is a type of STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) which is caused by the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). The HIV virus attacks the immune system and makes the body vulnerable to other diseases. AIDS is the last stage of the HIV infection; HIV takes about 10 to 12 years to fully culminate into AIDS. AIDS completely destroys the immune system and leads to fatal health conditions and diseases such as cancers and other infections because of AIDS.
HIV is a retrovirus that infects the vital organs of the human immune system. The virus progresses in the absence of antiretroviral therapy. The rate of virus progression varies widely between individuals and depends on many factors (age of the patient, body’s ability to defend against HIV, access to healthcare, existence of coexisting infections, the infected person’s genetic inheritance, resistance to certain strains of HIV).
HIV can be transmitted through:
- Sexual Transmission. It can happen when there is contact with infected sexual secretions. This can happen while having unprotected sex, including vaginal, oral and anal sex or sharing sex toys with someone infected with HIV.
- Perinatal Transmission. The mother can pass the infection on to her child during childbirth, pregnancy, and also through breastfeeding.
- Blood Transmission. The risk of transmitting HIV through blood transfusion is nowadays extremely low in developed countries, thanks to meticulous screening and precautions. Among drug users, sharing and reusing syringes contaminated with HIV-infected blood is extremely hazardous.
Contrary to popular belief, HIV can never spread by means of kissing as the virus cannot survive outside the body.
- The early symptoms of HIV appear within a few weeks of contamination by the virus. The early symptoms include headache, pain in the muscles and the joints, rashes and inflated lymph nodes. These symptoms tend to disappear within 2 to 3 weeks.
- The next set of symptoms might appear after a few years and these are persistent. The symptoms include, but are not limited to fatigue, loss of body weight, inflated lymph nodes, fever, a sensation of numbness near the limbs, pain when you try to swallow, sores in the mouth and sweating at night.
If you are diagnosed with HIV, you should:
- Try to maintain a daily diet containing vegetables, legumes, and fruits which provide you energy.
- Try to include a little bit of fat, carbohydrates (at least 3 servings of vegetable per day), calcium (dairy products) and low-fat protein sources (generally 80-150 gram per day of fish, skinned chicken, low-fat cheese etc.) in your everyday meal.
- Maintain a daily calorie intake of 17-25 calories per pound depending on whether the person is losing weight.
- Vitamins and minerals are particularly necessary to repair the cells damaged by the HIV virus.
If you are suffering from HIV, you must maintain the following food safety measures:
