@contentandwell @retiredteacher I was a diabetic for several years and no one said anything about bananas or potassium. It was not until I was diagnosed with CKD that I had to watch my intake of potassium (and sodium and phosphorus) because my kidneys couldn't handle it.

@marvinjsturing I knew nothing of potassium's role until my endocrinologist ran my blood profile. If it's in normal range, then there apparently is no problem, but mine was too much over, so that was one of the items he told me to avoid. I think mine does have to do with my kidneys and the carbs in bananas. I still eat one occasionally. They are good for my husband's heart disease, so what's good for him doesn't work for me.
I haven't had time to research yet with the holidays, but eventually I'm going to check it out, and see what's going on. Then when I go for my appointment, I'll ask my endo.
