Sounds like you have leaky gut which has to be healed separately. It takes a long time but you need specific supplements to heal it. The ones I take include digestive enzymes, L-glutamine, cinnamon, inulin (aka miracle fiber), prebiotics and probiotics.
Bitters is another one that heals leaky gut and there is a big list of supplements that also work (but I have not tried them; I can share a link if needed). L-glutamine is the most popular and it helps with sugar sensitivities specifically. I am on stage 3 so I can handle cheating and some coconut water now and then, but early on in my treatment I could not handle fruit or any sugar (like you).
Increasing good fat is important and you also need other essential fatty acids. Flax and hemp are examples of essential fatty acids (and I think coconut oil is another). I take a supplement with essential fatty acids called E3AFA which helps repair the brain.
Carbs gives you short term energy that disappears quickly, so in my opinion, its not a super great source of energy.
