Why are bananas considered bad for someone with type 2 diabetes?
Posted 3 years ago in Other by AnimalHead


Banana's have way too much free sugar
because bananas are high in sugar, people with diabetes need to stay away from foods that have high concentrations of sugar.
Yes, bananas can be high in natural sugars but the way to get out of that is choose bananas which are still slightly green. The sugars in an unripe banana are not as concentrated as a ripe banana. By the time a banana gets to the stage where it has black spots, now the sugars are extremely concentrated.But another reason most people have never heard of is bananas are relatively high in potassium. Large quantities of potassium can actually interfere with the medications many diabetics are prescribed by their doctor.Check with your physician and see if potassium is going to be a problem for you and your medications.
They are not bad.Just count your carbs as usual .

Who said they are bad? Define "bad". Whole fruit is better for a person with diabetes that processed food or candy or regular soda. Ripe bananas have sugar, but certainly not enough to make a dramatic difference when part of a balanced diet.It is not practical to try to eliminate all carbohydrates and sugar, so go ahead and eat that banana but make sure that you have plenty of other low carb foods to balance out your meals. The body needs carbs, even a person with diabetes needs carbs as an easy to access fuel source for the body. People with diabetes just have to limit the carbs they eat.

What is Type 1 Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes is when the body does not make enough insulin. Insulin is a hormone that helps your body convert food into energy. Without insulin, glucose (sugar) from the food you eat cannot enter cells. So glucose builds up in the blood. Your body tissue becomes starved for energy.

Type 1 diabetes usually begins in children and young adults. Over the long-term, if type 1 diabetes is not adequately treated, high blood sugar levels can damage the blood vessels, heart, kidneys, eyes, nerves, and other tissues or organs.
