As a Diabetic, I know you can control Diabetes by proper eating. You don't have to take medication or shots - you just have to eat a "low carb" diet. Yes, you can have all the desserts, breads, pizza, soups, stews, and foods you are use to. The only difference is the ingredients you make them with. Check out www.deliciouslyhealthy.net. This site will teach you how to substitute unhealthy foods with foods suitable for a Diabetic. It will also show you what foods are available at your local grocery stores. Beware of foods that are advertised for "Diabetics" or say "Sugar Free". Most of these have a tremendous amount of carbohydrates in them.
