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?

A. Hello sir, surely you can eat any kind of fruit, regardless of the sugar content. The point is you need to spread across the amount of fruits you eat, including a wide variety of different 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.
