How many grams of sugar in a product is too many for a diabetic?

Youhave to count the TOTAL Carbohydrates in a serving. The total carbohydrate already has the sugar grams added into the serving. We, as diabetics know that one carb serving ha 15 gms or under. You should be eating anywhere from 45-60 gms of carbs per meal. you can access the American Diabetes Website and there are other websites that are available to help you with this. Get with your healthcare team and discuss this with them. Any carbs that are over 15 grams per serving, you need to be careful and learn to add it up for each serving you eat. Too many carbs can lead to dangerously high levels of sugar in your blodo stream.

However many it takes to put one's blood sugar over the top. That varies from person to person, and with the person's level of activity - so it's not possible to put an exact figure on it.

It depends on what the product is, but you should shy away from things that have over twenty five grams of sugar per serving. Thirty's too high and forty's getting to the orange zone.

Most of the time it is the carbohydrate count--not necessarily the sugar grams...
And it depends on how the diabetes is controlled--either Type 1 or 2, diet and exercise or pills or shots of insulin.

Whatever the nutritionist decides is best. Too much is relative. Diabetics can technically eat whatever they want, just so long as the take enough insulin to cover it. Of course, they, like everyone else, should eat healthy for health's sake.

You have to remember that CARBS need to be closely monitored in diabetics. It isn't just grams of sugars.

the amount of carbs is what raises the blood sugar...not the amount of sugar
