By eating less one can keep well because his diet will remain within the limit of what his own insulin can manage. Diabetes can only be controlled by adopting an optimistic view on life and by following a good diet regimen and exercise. As it is rightly said, "When people tell you diabetes cannot be controlled, ask them to go and take a walk". Even the simplest form of exercise, like walking helps to control diabetes. Exercise improves metabolism which in turn leads to better control of glucose. It also helps to reduce weight and lowers blood pressure-which is commonly elevated in diabetics. More importantly, exercise can facilitate reduction of insulin dosage and other oral drugs. Along with regular exercise you must also control your diet. And remember to substitute your sugar with aspartame-based sweeteners. So, control the urge to take a cab for short distances. Walk instead. You could be walking away from diabetes.
