My wife is diabetic. She is 60 years old. Her sugar level is around 100. She is maintaining this level 1980. She can add BANANA in her diet. Thanks K. Devi.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if she has excellent sugar control then taking a small banana occasionally is ok, but regular consumption is better avoided. To have very good of diabetes fasting sugar level should be closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. (ideally <6.8).
