Hello.welcome.fruits like Mango,Banana,Cheeku,Grapes should be avoided by diabetics as they have high amount of free sugar in it.You can take apples,guava,pappaya,oranges,watermelon etc.Also you should avoid fruit juices rather take whole fruit as such.Good luck.

There are NO foods which must be completely excluded from diabetic diet. It is also NOT necessary to avoid sugar competely. It IS necessary to follow the advice of your medical team and follow a diet that achieves a healthy weight. It IS important to monitor your blood sugar levels and keep them under tight control. Citrus fruits are usally good..

Thanks for query,
You can take citrous fruits in diabetes.
Avoid fruits containing fat or carbohydrates but do not remain strict about this.
Some time you can go for these.
Ok and bye.

Hello Doc I normally find. Sugars. Ants clustering within my toilet bowl after some time I urinated; please what could be the sign of it?? I eat well balanced diet regularly; more of semolina with my native soup which comprises of chicken, ginger, garlic, chilli pepper and some other spices. I eat less of white bread, white rice and more of fruits. I drink more of red wine and cranberry juice, and water. I exercise by jogging and walking on. Saturdays mostly 4 an hour. I used to to smoke often but stopped recently but do take a stick or 2 randomly like 1 in a week or in 2 weeks. I used to overweight as well but been able to loosed 9-10kg with the help of green tea plus exercise and dieting. I used to regularly take a cup of black tea daily without sugar or milk but stopped as I discovered that its been over stressing my bladder and causing me constant urinarination and pains above my penis area directly below my navel. So with all these I don t know what could be the reason of seeing ants around my toilet bowl; tho this occurs when I fail to flush it and come back to reuse it. Patiently waiting for your advise. Thank You Doctor Warm Regards, Felix

I get a headache every time I eat fruit . Could I be diabetic? This is a fairly new thing. I have struggled with headaches my whole life but never been able to figure out what they are connected to. A website made me think I could be hypoglycemic because I also struggle with depression, insomnia, and low energy. But all this could also be related to stress. How can I find out? Is there a blood test?
