hi, I am from INDIA.1ST THING ,I WANT TO SAY THANKS TO THIS BLOG TO GIVE VERY IMP TIPS FOR ALL DIABETIC PEOPLE.what ever has been mantioned above is almost the True fact of human body.little bit of self dicipline AND little bit of carefullness in eating habbit can reduce 80% of chances of gettin victim of sugar disease.untill now i have never com across any one who has got cured with diabetes after starting tablets or insulin.infact ihave seen people getting cured by other means of medication with combination of doing exercise and walking..i have been helping people to reduce sugar and with gods wish and with patient cooperation many of them have managed to stop tables.drinking of lot of water and herbal medicine does help people to clear toxins and reduce sugar level.unless person doesn't follow strict rules its very difficult to reduce sugar.if person doesn't controll sugar in proper time period, then there is lot of health problem expected from feat to head.so be active keep eye on your weight,food habits.do little exercise to release your energy which reduces sugar. thank you sb
