Hello.... generally when the patient blood sugar is not under control then we suggest no no fruits, no fruit juices ,biscuit and no rice so that it becomes easy for controlling the blood sugar... I would suggest not to take any fruits including Dragon fruit for now until his Sugars are normalised after that you can have that fruit or any other fruit also but a proportion of a fruit in a day thank you
