Are Black Plums Good For Diabetics?

It’s important to first understand that there are two types of diabetes. One, type 1, is caused by an autoimmune disorder which destroys beta cells in the pancreas. Type 2 is the result of insulin resistance where the body isn’t making enough or has stopped responding to insulin due to cell damage or metabolic syndrome. So, yes – black plums are good for diabetics!
The fruit must be fresh and not canned.
Plums are high in fiber, full of antioxidants called polyphenols, and chock-full of potassium thanks to their plantain cousins (or rather the other way around). They’re also low in sugar, but you should check with your doctor just in case…
