Can Diabetics Eat Grapes ?
Grapes are berry fruits in the fruit category. They are sweet and sour, fresh, juicy and nutritious. Taking Kyoho grape as an example, every 100 grams of grape contains 87.0 grams of water, 0.4 grams of protein, 0.2 grams of fat, 12.0 grams of carbohydrate, 0.4 grams of dietary fiber, 128 milligrams of potassium, 6 milligrams of magnesium, and an energy of 50 kcal.
After the grapes are made into raisins, their nutritional composition will change. Each 100 grams of raisins contains only 11.6 grams of water, carbohydrates can be as high as 83.4 grams, 995 milligrams of potassium, 45 grams of magnesium, and energy of 341 kcal.
It can be seen that a large part of the grapes is water, followed by carbohydrates, which is what we often refer to as glucose and fructose; and carbohydrates account for most of the raisins.
Diabetic people can not eat grapes, need to understand the grape's blood sugar production index and blood sugar load. The grape has a Glycemic Index of 48 and is a low Glycemic index food. The blood sugar load per 100 grams of grapes is 4.3, which is a low-glycemic load food. If diabetics eat 200 grams of grapes, the blood sugar load is 8.6, which is also a low-glycemic load food. The raisin has a glycemic index of 64, which belongs to the medium-glycemic index food. The glycemic load per 100 g of raisins is 53.4, which is a high-glycemic load food. The blood glucose load of 25 g of raisins is 13.3, which belongs to the medium-glucose load food. Therefore, diabetics can eat fresh grapes in moderation and raisins need to be eaten in limited amounts.
Grapes also contain phytochemicals such as anthocyanins and polyphenols, which have anti-tumor, anti-oxidant and immune-boosting effects. Grape contains tartaric acid and other organic acids, can stimulate the secretion of human digestive glands, promote appetite, is conducive to the digestion of food, but also have a protective effect on the stability of vitamin C.

Patients taking Viagra are less likely to suffer a heart attack, new research claims.
Men taking the impotence drug were found to have a lower risk of having a heart attack or dying from heart failure than those not on the medication.
The findings mean Viagra could soon be used to treat hundreds of thousands of heart failure patients and even prevent fatal heart attacks, scientists say.
Experts from the University of Manchester studied 6,000 diabetic patients who had been given Viagra to treat erectile dysfunction.
The drug relaxes muscle cells in the blood vessels supplying the penis, allowing more blood to flow there.
This increased blood flow increases the likelihood of getting an erection.
Given the increasing reports of deaths in which the use of Viagra may be implicated, clinicians need to exercise caution when advising their patients with heart
Experts believe a key ingredient in Viagra called PDE5i, which relaxes blood vessels, also prevents damage to heart cells.
Heart failure is caused by the heart failing to pump enough blood around the body at the right pressure.
It most often occurs because the heart muscle has become too weak or stiff to work properly and is usually treated with medication which supports the heart.
Despite diabetics being prone to heart problems, the study participants did not suffer as many incidents as similar patients not on the drug.
