Can Diabetics Eat Bananas?
Type 1 Diabetes (genetic or due to accidents/surgery etc.) is not reversible but Type 2 Diabetes definitely is. Type 2 Diabetes is actually caused by a high-fat diet, combined with other factors (some possibly genetic) that will cause reduced insulin sensitivity.
By improving your body’s insulin sensitivity you can improve how your body reacts to sugar in any food, even the natural sugar in fruit. Following some key lifestyle habits can help get back insulin sensitivity:
- Reduce your body fat to a healthy level
- Eat a high-fiber diet
- Eat a low fat diet
- Exercise regularly, focusing on cardio exercises
- Avoid animal foods
By strengthening the body’s response to any sugar you are rooting out the cause rather than working out the “best” (less sugar spikes or High GI) foods. This changes the complete outlook of how you approach diet and puts the control into your hands. Eat bananas as they contain fiber, potassium and other nutrients that are needed to maintain healthy blood pressure levels. So, avoid superficial work, and work from the inside for long lasting effects.
Well for me bananas are the best on my diet so one in the morning and one at night with a healthy breakfast. ..\U0001f618
You beat me to it Jackie!!! Well stated! This is NOT a good guide for a diabetic. Maybe 10 years ago it was but it was still wrong 10 years ago, we just didn't know it yet.
I agree. Carbohydrates are the culprit...type 2 Diabetes has escalated in the last 20 years due to the low fat mentality. No one should be following the government food pyramid...there are so many clinical studies that prove that the pyramid is not correct. This Dr. Needs to participate and attend new lectures.
You both are very welcome. It sometimes pains me to see people speak of diabetes as if it's something they are stuck with for life. All kinds of posts about people managing living with diabetes...when there should be more of the posts of how to reverse and stop it.
Its having alot of calories , defenatly for a diabetic patient portion size matters alot , if it will increSe there will b high sugar level
It's not wise to label someone a diabetic as if it's something they are permanently. Diabetes does not define them. 'Diabetes' is just a label for a very simple to fix imbalance (though, as with anything simple, some can make it more complex than it needs to be). Anyway, to answer the question, yes they can or cannot. As diabetes is just a highlight of an imbalance with fats in the system, if the person controls and manages their fat intake a banana to several bananas a day will not cause an issue.
I'm a 65 years old woman and I measure my blood sugar every other day. I weight about 137 and I am 5'4 1/2"tall. What should be a normal reading?
In the mornings my blood sugar is about 104 and after lunch or dinner is about 134. Is that considered too high?
