Brief Answer:
In limited amounts

Detailed Answer:
Your question whether it is good or not for type 2 diabetes is perhaps prone to misinterpretation.

I will clarify the following:

1 It is not as if eating sweet potatoes will improve diabetes or blood glucose levels

2 Eating most things that are grown in nature and freshly consumed are healthy as long as they are taken in moderation

3 Eating sweet potatoes occasionally as part of a balanced diet is acceptable

In general, a balanced diet is sufficient. There are no absolute no-no's when it comes to diabetes. Eating in moderation is key.
You have very specific queries that are best addressed by seeing a dietitian in person. A dietitian will make an individualized plan tailor made for you based upon your preferences.
