Russell,if you have constipation have papaya fruit every day and when you cant get it you may have 10 drops of carica papaya mother tincture(homeopathic medicine) 10 drops 2 times a day you will see that both diabetes and constipation both are improving .have plenty of water and a cup of milk befor going to bed .

read the comments on this hub you will see how a lady helped her self to get rid of her chronic constipation --http://hubpages.com/hub/Medicinal-use-of-onion-jui...

Thanks lotuslove19 - without getting too much into the subject, stool softener works miracles. In the Cook Islands, papaya did the trick. It's not that available here and fruit juices just juice up the Diabetes readings. Water is good and now that the dam has broken, hopefully it will continue regularly. However, Tea is a question point medics are not settled on yet. David
