4 myths about eating with diabetes

There’s more to eating with diabetes than not eating sugar.

Myth #1: You can eat all the sugar-free foods you want

Carbohydrates will raise your blood sugar, not just sugar. Many sugar-free alternatives, like xylitol, contain carbs.

Myth #2: Fruit will satisfy your sweet tooth healthily

Fruits still contain carbohydrates. If you must, whole, fresh fruit is better than canned or fruit juice. Its fibre slows glucose absorption.
