As fruits have natural sugars, and in diabetes, one has to measure the calorie intake, especially sugars, it's best to prefer eating the fruit, rather than drinking fruit juices, as the latter would lead to a spike in blood sugar

Not the fruits with high glycemic index like watermelon.. avoid it! Fruits can be taken in small quantities and with no added sugar

Yes you can have fresh fruit juices in 100-150 ml, with your daily diabetes medication. Don't add extra sugar
