Diabetes is a growing challenge in India

8.7% diabetic population in India is in the 20-70 years age group

The condition leads to elevated blood sugar levels

If left untreated, diabetes can affect the eyes, heart & kidney

Diabetics are advised to avoid consumption of certain food items

One such diabetes-friendly food is jackfruit

Jackfruit has a medium glycemic index (GI) of about 50–60 on a scale of 100

Diabetics should ideally have raw jackfruit

However, experts caution against eating jackfruit in large quantities
