High fruit intake has been shown to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and some forms of cancer; however, the association between fruit intake and glycemic control in diabetes has been reported inconsistently. Some health professionals often have concerns about the sugar content in fruit and advise individuals with diabetes to restrict their fruit intake. Recent nutrition recommendations for the management of diabetes have emphasized individualized nutrition therapy based on a varied diet including whole grains, vegetables, and fruits, however. Higher fruit intake may reduce the risk of diabetes. Fruit intake should not be restricted and we recommend 2 exchanges (100-300 g) of fruit intake for diabetic patients.
