It becomes a problem for a diabetic if the bananas are overripe. Also, as with any other food, everything should be in moderation and that includes bananas. Well, the only bananas I eat wholeheartedly are the saba variety which is common here in the Philippines. I think the last time I ate a ripe cavendish was during a fun run I joined and I was given that as I was desperately looking for outdoor water fountains for drinking.
So there, bananas are perfectly fine if taken in moderation and if they are not too sweet. The American Diabetes Association recommends half a cup of fresh fruit with lunch or dinner so better follow that. Also, do not eat bananas as part of a sugary dessert (e.g. banana split, banana cue, banana cake).
