From South Africa:

I have type 2 diabetes, and would like to know which fruits I must avoid. I would also like to know if pineapple should be avoided.


Although pineapples, and all fruit for that matter, have carbohydrate in the way of fruit sugar, fruit also includes a wealth of vitamins and minerals for your body. I would recommend that you speak with a Registered Dietitian on your health care team who can suggest specific amounts of fruit to include in your meal plan.
