However, for people with diabetes, mangoes are construed as a no-go fruit owing to their high sugar content. Most people with diabetes stay completely away from mangoes in fear of it affecting their blood glucose levels adversely.
The good news is that this need not always be the case! The general perception of living with diabetes is that that sweets need to be completely eliminated from the diet- this is a myth. The fact is that following a routine that strongly encourages healthy eating, fitness and regular monitoring of blood glucose, allows you to say yes to a bite of those sweet mangoes!
Diabetes does not have to hold you back from enjoying the mango season. By keeping a careful watch over your health and blood glucose levels, you can make room for this fruit in your diet. Remember to regularly check your blood glucose throughout the day (as recommended) and keep an eye on those readings- they are an indicator of how much or how less of the fruit you can consume!
