    Hi Ben,

     

    Fruits do have naturally occuring sugars, so they don't keep blood sugar down, per se.  However, certain fruits are lower on the glycemic index, and thus will raise blood sugar more slowly.  Generally, fruits with more fiber content, i.e. cherries, apples, pears, and plums will have a lesser affect on your blood sugar than some of the tropical fruits like mango and pineapple. 

     

    I eat 1/2 a banana with natural peanut butter almost every morning.  Bananas have a moderate affect on my blood sugar, but I just bolus insulin for it, like I would any other carboydrate, and it's not an issue.
