Carbohydrates, stress, illness all raise Blood Sugar (BG)  
Your pancreas produces insulin to automatically control BG.   If you have high BG then you need to control your BG  your tools
eat less carbohydrates
loose weight  at 68 kg thats probably not an option.
exercise.
medication.

Yes you can eat Apple in moderate amount. 1 PIECE a day fine.  Limit or avoid typical fruits like banana which are very sweet.

Hello,

This is a question for your doctor, rather than here.

However, please know that an ideal fasting blood sugar is in the low 80s.  Therefore your fasting levels are still high, and it would be recommended that you continue to take your medications.

Hello,
Your fasting blood sugar is a little higher than normal still.  You can discuss with your Dr whether or not it is appropriate to adjust your medications.  This will depend on the blood sugar targets.

For non-medication based approach to help, it would be recommended to take at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise each day (longer if you can work it in), and to reduce carbs (you can replace these with more quality protein and healthy fats).  The latest studies on diets that are effective for people with diabetes show that low carb, moderate protein and high (healthy unprocessed) fats give better blood sugar control.

Your numbers are better than before so your plan to lower your BG is working  
Good for YOU

Your numbers are still higher than a non diabetic person so I would continue my meds.

Coconut water is fine. Just be sure it is plain, and unsweetened.
