    Controlling your weight and diet are indeed the most effective ways in controlling diabetes. For 5 years I struggled with it because I wasn’t eating the right foods. I was in denial when I was first diagnosed so I continued eating the same way. One day I finally had an epiphany that I was putting my health and life in jeopardy with my poor eating habits. So I made the changes including: eating more fruits and vegetables with less sugar. These lifestyle changes have produced a bounty of benefits for my health.
