Since dry fruits are also loaded with calories, you need to balance every thing and eat them sparingly. Eat more of natural food ( fresh fruits and vegetables and organic foods ). The importance of diet is that it should be nutritious/ healthy and balanced diet ( the total calories depends upon your activity level ; you can take the help of a dietician who can help you with healthy options with appropriate calories ). Give priority to your health and take necessary action. Exercise every day ( 30 mins to 1 hour ). Include Yoga which can help your digestion and overall well-being. You should also go for regular health check. Please mention all about your medicines. Your sugar levels are higher and still needs to be controlled. Talk to your doctor and revert with further information.
No diabetes patients should not eat all types of dry fruits or fresh fruits. The sugar values are very high and requires medication or increase in doses if already taking antidiabetic.
