The Role of Food:

A healthy diet is the foundation for good blood sugar control in any type of diabetes, even without medication in some cases. Whether you are being treated with insulin injections or tablets, you still need to follow a sensible diet.
The so-called “diabetic diet” is not in fact a diet, but rather a healthy eating plan which can, and should be followed by the whole family.
Keeping to a healthy food intake not only controls blood glucose levels (and so delays the onset of diabetic complications) but also helps to maintain body weight and prevent heart disease.
