i have a question about cucumbers. someone told me they arent good for diabetic. is that correct.

Cucumbers along with fruits and vegetables should not be restricted by diabetics. There is often a misconception that the naturally occurring sugar in fruits and vegetables is “bad” for diabetic patients. However, fruits and vegetables can actually help manage blood sugar levels better than many other foods such as white (enriched) rice or bread. When you eat a fruit or vegetable, your blood sugar level is minimally affected (for most fruits and vegetables). This is due to their soluble fiber content.  So enjoy your cucumbers and all different kinds of fruits and vegetables! Here is our Top 10 Ways to Enjoy Cucumbers!
