Hello, I have a question regarding to my mom. My mom is diabetes. Can she eat lychee?

Fructose can be used by our body as long as it is converted into sugar glucose by way of liver’s invertase.

As a result, there is very low sugar glucose in blood, which will cause hypoglycemia shock. What’s more, more than 60% diabetes also have hyperlipidemia. High levels of fructose in lychee will lead to high blood lipids. This is vicious circle.
