Q. I’m having diabetics for nearly 12 years. Can I eat all types of fruits? I’m 60 years old male and I’m having diabetics for nearly 12 years. I’m taking meds and my sugar is under control. Everyday I have some fruits without fail. Can I eat all types of fruits?

In general everyone has to eat at least five portions of fruits and vegetables every day. Spreading the fruit you eat through the day will avoid a sudden rise in blood glucose levels.
