Avoiding melon this summer thinking it has way too much sugar? Or, blaming melon when your blood glucose trends a little high. Get the facts on grapes, watermelon, cantaloupe, bananas, and honeydew, and share your comments and experiences with delicious melons below or on the website.
So as for watermelon, for example, the serving size is actually one and one-quarter cups of cubed watermelon, which to me, I think that’s a nice serving. And for honeydew and cantaloupe, it’s a serving of one cup cubed. Still, a really nice serving. So we’re not talking about grams of sugar when we’re looking at foods, but we’re looking at total grams of carbohydrate. And these portions that I just mentioned are 15 grams of carbohydrate portion sizes and that’s what we use for carb counting.

Type 2 Diabetes – Could A Molecule Found in A Baby’s Pancreas Be Linked With Diabetes In Children?
Children of diabetic pregnancies have a higher-than-average risk of developing Type 2 diabetes than children from a healthy pregnancy. Is this because the babies tend to be overweight or is there something else going on? Scientists at the Research Institute of Human Morphology and the Ministry of Health in Moscow, Russia, might have found the explanation: it has to do with a molecule known as vimentin. Vimentin has been seen in pancreatic cells from adults with diabetes. Could it be the link between Gestational or pregnancy-related diabetes, and childhood Type 2 diabetes?
