Last week I talked about how oranges help with Neuropathy and ease nerve pain. The biggest concern I had was would an orange a affect my A1C ?
Friday I had an appointment with my diabetic doctor and she said a small orange per day shouldn’t hurt my diabetic numbers. Emphasis on small. She recommended if I was concerned about my sugar numbers going up, to check my sugar an hour later after eating the orange to see if it would affect my numbers. It doesn’t. My A1C was 5.6 after my blood work.
Remember it’s about portions and the time of day you eat certain fruits. I eat my orange for lunch, so I have the rest of the day to burn it off.
In the end I’m glad I found a fruit to help with my Neuropathy . It’s a natural way to help ease the pain. All of my doctors recommend natural foods and treatments over over medicating. I hope this will help my fellow diabetics with their nerve pain.
Stay safe and healthy!
