      if you like sugar taste try stevia, whjch is a plant frrom paraguay (sud america) is like making a tea, boil water and inmerse the leaves. a cup of water with i spoonful of stevia is tastier than a cup of water with 2 spoonfull of sugar. al diabetic must learn how to cook, you got no frozzen food, less cans, no red meat,little poultry and more fish (tuna, salmon, sardines ) green vegetables; get to know the glicemic index (gi) which is a list where indicates the efect of glicemic that produce the food. starchy food has high gi, white flour has about 75 to 95 gi, is high. like i said got to learn to cook and after you see your doctor and nutriccionist, read and read more, the wed is full of information.

      I recommend follow Dr. Barnard's program or Dr. McDougall's program.  For Type 2 they can reverse the disease and for Type 1 they can prevent complications (which is what is most important)..  So I'd look into their diet programs.

    There is a general "diabetic diet", which dramatically limits (mostly excludes) sugars and limits starches (breads, potatos, pasta, rice).  Fruits have their own kind of sugars, so you have to watch them.  Vegetables are generally good for someone on that diet.  It's not that simple, though, which is why someone concerned about a proper diet for Type II diabetes really should consult a nutritionist/dietician who specializes in managing diabetes (or at least get a book).

    What someone eats can depend on what their blood sugar level is when they measure it, and eating at specific intervals during the day are important.  There's also monitoring to make sure sugar levels don't drop way too low.

    Before adding a link to the American Diabetes Association below, I'd just like to mention that I know people who were diagnosed with Type II, faithfully stuck with the diet, and eventually didn't need medication or insulin.


    This is a good overall resource, and there are lots of books available (not necessarily on this site, from what I've seen) about living with Diabetes and managing sugar levels.  The public library must have some.  The Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston, MA ("world's preeminent diabetes research and clinical care organization) can be found at Joslin.org.  They have have books, pamphlets, etc. 

    As far as the "best treatment" goes, many diabetics are given oral medications.  Some require insulin injections.  It depends on the person.  Some people may start out on insulin injections but later be put on oral medication by their doctor.  I know someone who was able to stop injections by following the diet, which led to his losing weight, and eventually to his sugar being under control by diet alone.

    you can make your own vegetable salad (cabbage, carrots, broccoli, lettuce add some apple and cheese). you can buy or make your own cream sauce.

    low or less sugar consumption is good for diabetis
