The most important guidelne for diagetics is to follow your diet. My younger brother literally ate himself to lossing both legs and renal failure. He is spending the rest of his life in a nursing home. He is only 53.

All of the things tha are important for all of us: eat a healthy lowfat, low carbohydrate, high fiber diet. All sugars (sweets) and complex carbohydrates (pastries) are to be avoided. Eliminate red meat and greasy meats. No fast food. Regulaar Exercise. maintain appropriate weight. Many adult onset diabetics can mangage thir blood sugars by diet alone. It takes a srtong will and perseverance. but the benefits outweigh the consequences of not taking care of yourself.

Even if the diabetic is on insulin or an oral hypoglycemic drug diet is of the same importance.

I believe finding the causes of your diabetes (if you have diabetes) is also important.

Is it caused by obesity? viral infection? or is it genetic?

Plus, besides watching your diet, exercise is also extremely helpful. I have known a few people whose diabetes was cured.

Genetics play a part in diabetes. But managing diet and weight can help prevent the onset of Type II diabetes. Anyone with a family member with diabetes is at risk.

Obesity also plays a role. Many of the obese are not watching their diets or exercising.

As Americans become heavier the incidence of diabetes increasses.
