Yes, they are. If you are thirsty, you need to drink water and not other beverages. Fresh fruit juices can be taken without added sugar. Desserts, usually the indian desserts are made of mainly sugar and ghee, once in a while as a treat , occasionally can be consumed. if you are a diabetic, for better control fasting blood sugar should be between 80 to 120 mg/dl and 2 hrs after food blood sugar, it should be around 140 mg/dl +/- 10.
