I read about a research last year or 2 years ago that found that people without diabetes who ate 1-4 oranges a day have lower risks of developing diabetes. The research focused on the Japanese, because some Japanese and other Asians believe that oranges can cause diabetes.
In any case, better to have the fruit and all the wonderful nutrients in it than pills or supplements.

Virginia Woolf: “Consider how common illness is, how tremendous the spiritual change that it brings, how astonishing, when the lights of health go down, the undiscovered countries that are then disclosed, what wastes and deserts of the soul a slight attack of influenza brings to view, what precipices and lawns sprinkled with bright flowers a little rise of temperature reveals, what ancient and obdurate oaks are uprooted in us by the act of sickness, how we go down in the pit of death and feel the waters of annihilation close above our heads and wake thinking to find ourselves in the presence of the angels and the harpers when we have a tooth out and come to the surface in the dentist's arm-chair and confuse his "Rinse the mouth-rinse the mouth" with the greeting of the Deity stooping from the floor of Heaven to welcome us - when we think of this, as we are so frequently forced to think of it, it becomes strange indeed that illness has not taken its place with love and battle and jealousy among the prime themes of literature”

Orange and Diet Nutrition
The nutritional value of fruit, like Orange, makes it an excellent choice for both weight control and general health. Fruit contains energy-giving fructose (low on the glycemic index), several essential vitamins and minerals, phytochemicals, plus dietary fiber for better health, digestion and blood glucose control.

It's all about testing and seeing how your blood sugars respond, as we are all different in our tolerances...and sometimes our tolerances change...testing is the key!

If I eat an orange by readings can go up to 180 or 200, so I stay away from them. I can eat pears and berries with no problems. Like others have already stated, test after you eat and see how your body is reacting. YMMV.

I tried an orange once early on in my diagnosis. I went above 200. So I haven't had one since. In fact, I avoided ALL fruits until recently - after dropping weight. With the weight drop, for me, insulin resistance has decreased pretty significantly. I've infused some fruits back into my diet. Bananas, apples, berries, pears, canteloupe, honeydew - I haven't had a two hour above 100 with any of these. I'll probably try an orange again soon just to compare. Oh, and because I love them too.
