Fruit to choose (Diabetes Patient)



Here is a real case, a diabetes patient just told me that he want to avoid sweet fruits to lessen sugar intake. Honestly speaking, there isn’t any need to avoid any fruits, diabetes patient can go for any type of fruits but within an amount. Unripe fruits contain more starch compare to ripe fruits as ripe fruits already convert starch to sugar for sweeter taste. However, all fruits have it own natural sugar which called as fructose. I recommended diabetes patient should take fruit after his/her main meal and control to 1 portion size only. For example, patient can take 1 apple / 1 orange/ 1 slice watermelon/ 1 slice papaya after finish main meal that contains rice, vegetables and fish. 
曾有一些病人告诉我,应该避免吃这些甜味的水果,而应该选择如青苹果或橙等酸味的水果。其实糖尿病的病人,任何类型的水果也可以食用,只要控制水果的摄入量。未成熟的水果中含有较多的淀粉,而熟的水果会把淀粉转化为糖分。然而,所有类型的水果有它自己的天然的果糖。因此,建议糖尿病患者应采取控制后的主餐,份量为1颗水果。例如,您需要在主菜后,包含饭,蔬菜,鱼或家禽后,只可1粒苹果/1粒橙/1片西瓜/1片木瓜。
