Now, here is the cure. Just follow these three simple rules. If you are taking insulin or other medications, you must coordinate this with your doctor, as dosages will need to be adjusted (downward) so that you don’t die from an overdose.

Fruits include strawberries, papaya, watermelon, blueberries, cantaloupes, and honeydew melons, and small amounts of peaches, apples, and nectarines. Basically melons are manageable because they’re mostly water, and berries tend to be OK because they’re mostly fiber, but you have to be careful of the amounts. Monitoring is the only way to know how they work for you.
Ginkgo, garlic, holy basil leaves, fenugreek seeds, ginseng, and hawthorn are other herbals that have been promoted by some as remedies for diabetic symptoms. More research is needed to see what, if any, role these herbals may play. Check with your doctor before trying any herbal product.
I am not diabetic. With that said, I will also admit that I have a good chance-if I were to stray from my low sugar, low starch diet-to become diabetic. After all, it was diabetes that affected my father and aided in the formation (though the doctor said that it had been a common side effect of the drugs used to combat his cancer) or the embolism that ended his life. Of course, he was unwilling to adjust in order to keep his blood sugars at safe levels. It is also diabetes that has taken my grandmother’s eyesight, though Parkinson’s has taken her ability to walk.
If you have diabetes, your body cannot make or properly use insulin. This leads to high blood glucose, or blood sugar, levels. Healthy eating helps keep your blood sugar in your target range. It is a critical part of managing your diabetes, because controlling your blood sugar can prevent the complications of diabetes.
Diabetes was one of the first diseases described, with an Egyptian manuscript from c. 1500 BCE mentioning “too great emptying of the urine”. The Ebers papyrus includes a recommendation for a drink to be taken in such cases. The first described cases are believed to be of type 1 diabetes. Indian physicians around the same time identified the disease and classified it as madhumeha or “honey urine”, noting the urine would attract ants.

Aside from managing your diabetes, a diabetes diet offers other benefits, too. Because a diabetes diet recommends generous amounts of fruits, vegetables and fiber, following it is likely to reduce your risk of cardiovascular diseases and certain types of cancer. And consuming low-fat dairy products can reduce your risk of low bone mass in the future.

No treatments — alternative or conventional — can cure diabetes. So it’s critical that people who are using insulin therapy for diabetes don’t stop using insulin unless directed to do so by their physicians.
