      You need to attach the link to your hub. I did not see it included in your email message. I'm sure there are many people on here who will be glad to help out once we read it.

      What are your qualifications for offering nutritional advice to people with a serious health condition? Why would people take your guidance over that of an authority on the subject? I'm not being mean, this is important. Giving bad or incorrect advice is dangerous.

      You don't cite any references on which you base your recommendations.

      You don't mention which diabetes you are referring to - Types 1 and 2 are very different.

      Your advice seems to be outdated. Many people have reversed Type 2 diabetes by a very low carb diet, my husband included.

      Never cook with olive oil. It must be consumed cold as a dressing. Butter is a healthy fat. Vegetable oils are not. Saturated fats don't cause higher cholesterol -  many people find their triglycerides stabilize when they choose low carb.

      Looks like the raggededge has given you some great feedback.

      Sounds like you are interested in your topic and that is important because it is always best to write on topics we are genuinely interested in. Are you diabetic? If so, I suggest including this in the beginning of your article because it gives your readers a connection with you, as I assume that many people reading your article would be diabetic or have family members who are.

      The main thing that stood out to me in your article is that (as therraggededge has written) you need to back up your information with references (where did you get your information from?) so that your article is credible. Otherwise, nobody has any reason to believe that your tips are safe or worth trying.

      Also, check your grammar throughout your article.
      For example:
      "Here are some of the best tips on diabetic diet."
      Looks like you mean to say...
      "Here are some of the best tips for a diabetic diet."

      I encourage you to keep working on your article. Again, if you are a diabetic, that gives you a great platform for connecting with your readers, but it is very important that you indicate where your info is coming from so that your readers take your article seriously.

      Hope this helps and happy hubbing!

      I hate to be "that guy" but if the above is indicative of your English language writing skills... then it's fairly obvious why your hub didn't pass the quality assessment process.

    Hello focuswriter 1. I am glad you ask about your hub concerning problems with diabetes. It is a terrible health's problems. It leads to kidney failure. Some medications are so strong that the side affects are not positive. The food for someone with diabetes needs to be measure. Too much or too little sugar is not good.   I know about the fruit for diabetic people. It is important. The medicine it is not the same. People needs to be train how to save themselves. The sugar is in the fruits. Ask a Doctor what kind of fruits, you need to take to lower the sugar. Good luck.
