I never consider type 2 diabetes to be diabetes, which my dad was for over 40 years. I would really have to think that fruit should really replace the standard deserts these people are eating.

When I was a child fruit was more often our dessert ~ even if it was a a bowl of home canned peaches.

it's an individual thing, some folks may be able to eat them but others will have problems.
