Diabeteic diet should have 50 percent to 60 percent of total daily calorie intake should be in the form of carbohydrates. Foods high in dietary carbohydrates should be avoided or taken in limits which include sugar, starchy foods like potatoes and pasta, and grain-based foods like breads and cereals.

Hi, I am 56, average weight (57kg), 169cm tall. Lately I had several occasions where after drinking green tea or water I develop belching and severe dull pain in my left kidney area, sometimes lasting for 2 days.

I am taking pancreatin for digestive problems. I also have sliding hernia and a host of other problems, but this is a new one.
