Is it wrong to eat jello (jelly) if you are per-diabetic?

No. No food is off limits (except kumquats. I hate kumquats.) Just be wise in your choices and amounts.

Controlling diabetes or avoiding diabetes when you have pre-diabetes is all about making choices on your carbohydrate intake. Eating LOW CARB and SUGAR FREE is the best combination.
If you want something that does contain some sugar, then consider the total carbohydrates and lower a different carbohydrate intake to offset the difference. For example, if you want a piece of cake - then avoid eating bread on that day. You reduced a different carb source to allow for a special carb choice.
Talk to a dietitian about a goal for total daily carbohydrates and total daily sugar in your diet.
Eating right with diabetes isn't about what is "off limits" - it is all about what amounts can be eaten and balancing good choices with a few "treats".

If it's sugar free, it's fine.

Pre...I would think as long as it's sugar free you could eat just about anything.
