[IP] Coconut



Ok everyone, here's a weird question. Not pump related, but diabetes-myth 
related.

A couple of weeks ago I ate some coconut a couple of days in a row. The 
first day, I became a little red. The second day, after eating I turned very 
red and blotchy and hot. I think I have a food sensitivity to coconut.

Just talked to a friend who says that diabetics he knows say they cannot eat 
coconut. It's a no-no. Well, I know it has lots of fat, but I know how to 
deal with that. Is it a problem for other reasons? Do other diabetics react 
to it for some bizarre reason?

Anyway, just thought I'd ask. I suspect it is a myth...
