Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Fruits which can be consumed are papaya, water melon, orange, sweet lime, apple, pear, guava, pomegranate, other melons. Fruits to be avoided or taken in a very small quantity are banana, mango, chikkoo, grapes and custard apple. It always advised to eat the whole fruit. Juices are not good as all the fiber contents are removed. Another importan aspect is it is necessary to achieve a strict blood glucose control before consuming the fruits. Plus not more than 2 servings a day. One can take more of green leafy vegetables. Thanks.
