Re: Prune Question & Blood Work Update

I'll let the experts answer the bloodwork questions. In regard to prunes, prunes are very high in fiber which causes the sugar in them to be utilized very slowly. Hence, they are very low on the glycemic index, in that they have much less effect on insulin than other fruits.
You want to make sure you are using simple dried prunes, not heavily processed types that have added sugar or worse, are in syrup.
