What can anybody tell me about fructose in the diet for type2 diabetes!?!
I've run across this by accident. I bought what turned out to be a super-sweet variety of cantaloupe, and I thought OMG I shouldn't even be eating this, and then lo and behold, my BG *falls* ten points! Say, what?
So through one thing and another I find there is some kind of issue about fructose in the diets for diabetes. And I'm guessing these melons are full of fructose.
Fructose does NOT raise your BG reading, and in my case it seems to be doing the opposite! However nothing could be that good, right? So it turns out there are other drawbacks to too much fructose, it will raise your triglycerides. Which may in part explain why high-fructose corn syrup is a bad thing - low-fructose corn syrup being bad enough.
So anyway, does anyone have anymore to add on or about this topic?
