In brief: Unlikely but...

While fruit contains sugars as glucose and fructose, the fiber in fruit reduces its effects on raising blood sugar.
In the context of an otherwise healthy diet and exercise you probably won't get diabetes, though it would be wise to consume mostly lower-glycemic fruits like berries, cherries, apples and citrus while minimizing melons and tropical fruits that tend to have a higher glycemic index.

In brief: Vague question

Getting plenty of exercise and eating a diet that is low in sugar will lessen your chances of developing diabetes.
If your blood sugars are already high while you are currently engaged in a healthy lifestyle, you could try cutting your fruit intake in half and limit the amount of wheat products you eat. If that doesn't work to bring down your blood sugars, then try stress reduction techniques.

In brief: Probably not.

7 portions of fruit daily is a lot of sugar, but whole fruit is still healthy.
Try increasing proteins, nuts, and vegetables. Eggs are a healthy choice.
