    FYI Try a grapefruit addition to what you already eat. Have something to eat today – it improves your brain function. Use your stretch bands for your large group muscle exercise. You can lie down on the bed and put on your foot (right leg) and pull up with your arm for your quads etc. Don’t forget to do something, even if your sitting at the computer. LL

    Sip on lemon water throughout the day and with meals. Or you can sip on lime water. Just a few table spoons in a glass of water and sip on it with meals and throughout the day. Lemons ad Limes have an alkaline affect on the body and helps put the body back into an alkaline mode which is a natural healthy ph balance for your body and causes your body to burn fat 24/7. Adding more and more alkaline foods to your diet will reset your body from being acid (which is what most diabetics and cancer patients are acid) back to alkaline which is a healthy ph balance for your body. Drinking lemon or lime water or lemon and lime water, will taste a little bitter but it is extremely healthy for you. It improves your skin, eyes, heart, brain and does a lot of healthy things for your body.

    I have been an insulin-depoendant diabetic since I was 16 and shortly after a major car accident which put me in the hospital. My pancreas may have been injured along with most other body parts as a result of that accident. In those early days, I took insulin by injection and did that for many years. Fortunately, I soon learned how to gauge my blood sugar levels with the correct amount of insulin and carbohydrates from food which I ate. Unfortunately, as time passed, my need for insulin kept increasing as it does today, no matter how well I gauge my food consumption, take exercise and inject insulin. For many years I simply tested my blood sugar via urine then came an insulin pump and better methods of gauging my blood sugar levels. Now I use an insulin pump and adjust my insulin injected by my pump to account for my blood sugar levels and the amount of carbohydrates in all the food I plan to eat. While doing all those calculations for carbohydrates in the food I am about to eat, I have very clearly benefitted greatly for these efforts. I am now 71 and in perfect health regardless of my diabetes. I now expect to live beyond 110 and thereby become the oldest living insulin-dependent diabetic in our good and great world. Incidently, I also am careful about eating to also keep my weight at the “skinny” level.If I can do it, every diabetic can do it. Charles Stevens

    My son cured himself of type 2 diabetes and you can too! By diet of watching the number of carbs he ate and joining a gym (with his brother); he lost a total of 83 pounds. He no longer has the diabetes and no longer takes medication for it. Follow diet & exercise and good luck to you. :o)

    Knowledge is power, so all of these tips about Diabetes are great…if you remember to follow them. I lost 51 lbs because I have a fear of needles, and therefore, for all intensive purposes, the Dibetes is “gone”.
    IMPORTANT–PLEASE READ: If you take any prescription medication, please check with your Pharmasist, as GRAPEFRUIT is NOT allowed with some medications,as it will ‘erase’ the effects that the medication is trying to do. I have two medications that say this on the bottle, so please take the time to check, because if your Doctor prescibed something for you, you need it, more than you would need the grapefruit! All the best!!! Cheryl

    I have had the type 2 diabetes since 1981.
    However, I have well controlled the blood sugar level by insulin injection. I still do not know how to control the sugar level by the tablets.
    If possible, I wish to use tablets instead of the injection.
    When I travel for a long distance, I still do not know how to carry the insulin properly without ice.

    Grapefruit is a no no for certain medications being taken for diabetes. Before you start eating it, check with your doctor to make sure it is compatible with your medication. Could be dangerous.

    Kenneth, get your prescription with the pen and dial up your dosage. The pen does not need refrigeration, just has to be kept with certain temp range. Just follow directions on script.

    According to a doctor I know in Toronto, cinnamon is not advisable for Blood Type O people. So the individual who has oatmeal with cinnamon on it must not be a Blood Type O person. If you are, avoid cinnamon. If anyone of any blood type would like to have this chart, send me an Email to a@truedemocracy.net and just write Blood Type Foods Chart in the subject line, and I will send it to you.

    I am diabetic type one and I was prescribed metformin but there are side effects please check with your doctor n it is reduce your weight. There are other medi to control sugar level in your blood. Water therapy is one good thing to do. First thing in the morning drink about 1.5lt of water ( room temperature ) and wait for about half n hour then only you can have your either tea or coffee. Try it at least one month water therapy prevents many illnesses.
