  • As a type 2, it’s highly unlikely that any one food one time could do you any immediate harm (I was diagnosed 8 years ago and have never had any noticeable physical reaction to anything I ate). It’s the cumulative effect of all those blood sugar highs that start to damage your body. And once the damage is done, there’s no going back. 

    So check your glucose. If it’s really high you might want to go do some exercise and drink a lot of water to help bring it down faster. I would not recommend eating a whole mango going forward. They are approximately 35 grams of carbs. Have a few slices instead.

    Are you on oral medication. Are you taking it?. Yes, very likely you will be fine. Test your blood sugar after 2 hours. DO NOT freak out unless it is over 400 mg/dcl. Test again after another 2 hours.

    Test your sugar. That's what testing your sugar is all about.
