my mother-in-law's dr. said no fruit also.the dietician i took her to showed her what fruits and what serving size(oz.,cups,etc) that she could have. than she taught us how to add it to her meal plan. very helpful. i would check with a dietician. you may want to ask the dr. for a referral or check with your local hospital.that's where we went. good luck! cyndi

Good Morning,
Everyone is affected differently by fresh fruit. I personally can eat any of them without a spike in blood sugar as long as I keep to a regular serving size. Did you question your doctor on the no fruit comment? Why? What about small servings? I'd ask to be referred to a Diabetes Nutritionist if there is one available in your area. My experience is that Doctors tend to generalize and Diabetes is an individual disease.

Just my take

I agree with the above posts. Perhaps you should ask your doctor if there are any fruits that would be okay for you to eat in moderation… Or speak with a nutritionist regarding your fruit intake.

Ditto the above. Best to start withthe nutritionist. This person can help with the inclusion of fruit in your diet. We all need some fruit for the vitamins and minerals however you need to watch the carbs and include that in your carb count. Of course if you don't like fruit perhaps you can get the same vits and minerals in vegetables. Please tell me you like veggies.

I'm a type 1 using a pump, and to me for a diabetic I think it is very important that you talk with our diabetes specialist and and a nutritionist that works with diabetics also keep in mind we are all different

Well we all need some fresh fruit but you just have to watch your sugar. I know my doctor has said try not to have it in the morning. Juice is ok but then you are just drinking your calories and you still have to watch as juice has a lot of sugar. I hope this helped a bit.
