Please help my understanding of what is Good Sugar and Bad Sugar and is there a different in how each will affect a diabetic (1, 1.5, 2)…
I get the feeling the answer to this question depends on the person and their experience.
I have been told by people there are “good sugars” that I can eat like fruit. How the fruit will affect me will depend on my Type(1, 1.5, 2) and lifestyle. I have heard this more than once even by people that have identified themselves as medical professionals.
I been told “bad sugars” are mainly “bleached foods” such as rice, flour, pasta, etc…
I have been under the assumption from the articles that I have read that sugar is sugar…period. Should take into account of the source as to whether this will impact my BS or not? Am I correct is stating that all foods that metabolize into a sugar complex will cause BS to spike? If yes, then how could one be good and one be bad if they are both doing the same thing? When the BS spikes will the diabetic type determine if I the sugar is good or bad for me?
I just want to have a clear and consice understanding so I can at least tell other people correct information and to help myself. I am really struggling with this disease.
