    The first thing you should do is to get advice from a doctor.  If you have already done that then any advice you get from any forum should be run past your doctor before trying anything not already approved by your medical care giver.

    You should avoid added salt. There is already too much salt in the food we eat daily.

    You should avoid processed foods. If you can afford to eat fresh food only you will be amazed at the difference this one step will make.

    With doctors approval, you should add Cinnamon to your diet. Putting this spice in your diet regulates and balances your metabolism.

    To help your immune system you should add Kunyit (asian name) - Tumeric in moderate amount, to taste, in as many things you eat as possible. This will strengthen your immune systema nd provide many other benefits. Google Tumeric and see what you find, it is amazing what this spice can and will do for you.

    To keep your weight in check you should try not to eat after 5pm. If your diabetes will allow that.

    Again, make sure you check this and any other diet information you get with your doctor.

    I am not a physician and it's always best to consult your health care provider before starting a diet.  However, I would personally suggest a 'diabetic diet.'  A diabetic diet simply helps control your blood sugar and help prevent "spikes" by knowing the types of foods you are eating.   If you eat simple carbs, or sugary, startchy foods, your body will digest these very quickly.  This results in a blood sugar spike.  There are several websites that can help you plan your diet accordingly.  You will need to watch the amount of carbs, sugars, and starches that you eating.  You don't have to cut everything out, just keep it within moderation and adding simple changes.  Such as drinking diet soda instead of regular.  Replacing table sugar with things such as Splenda (artifical sweetener).  I will post a few websites that help you learn more about a diabetic diet and how to plan a diabetic diet. 

    As far as your foot goes, it is very important to take very good care of your feet.  Diabetes can cause poor circulation, nerve damage, and very poor healing.  You need to inspect your feet daily, wash them in lukewarm water, wear comfortable shoes that do not rub, wear DRY socks (anything to avoid blisters), and also wear socks at night to prevent your feet from getting cold.  I will post a website that may help you with that as well.

    I wrote a hub about this.  Like everyone, she needs a good healthy diet.  With type 2 diabetes, losing weight and maintaining a good diet can reverse the effects of diabetes. 

    Take a look at my article about prediabetes - the information can be transfered to those existing with the condition:
