When we were in New Orleans I got sick the first night, I was blaming the food I'd eaten at lunch....but after reading more about raw oysters and diabetics it said symptoms can occur 24-48 hours later. I can figure back and it was about 42 hours after I'd eaten four raw oysters that I started feeling sick so maybe my lunch that day wasn't the culprit.

I have no way of knowing for sure, but I don't think I'll be eating any raw oysters from now on. Trouble is, they were good! Would love to eat them again, but I don't think it's worth it!

So, if you're a diabetic do you eat raw oysters or avoid them?
I know someone who died of vibrio vulnificus. While he had some other underlying health issues, this was determined to be the cause of death. While I never ate raw oysters before (or any other raw food), that cured me of ever even wanting to try it.
