HI jan.

THANKS FOR YOUR QUESTION.

ITS A VERY GOOD QUESTION THAT EVERY DIABETIC PATIENT SHOULD KNOW.THEY TRY TO AVOID-SUGAR,ANY CARBOHYDRATE FOOD LIKE RICE,ANY SWEET FOOD ITEM,ANY FOOD PRODUCE UNDER THE GROUND LIKE-POTATO.
THE BASIC PRINCIPAL IS NOT AVOID ALL CARBOHYDRATE FOOD BECAUSE THE CAN CONVERT TO GLUCOSE AND WORSEN THE CONDITION AND THERE FOOD CONTAIN PLENTY OF VEGETABLES, VITAMINS,FROOT (NON SWEET) SMALL FISH ETC AND THEY SHOULD HAVE A DIET CHART HAVING RESTRICTED CALORIES THIS IS THE DIETARY MODIFICATION OF DIABETES THAT EVERYBODY SHOULD MAINTAIN AND EXCEPT THIS DRUG RESPONSE IS POOR.

THE DEFINITE THERAPY IS INSULIN OR ORAL HYPOGYCAEMIC DRUGS BASE ON TYPES,PATIENT AGE AND RESPONSE NOWADAYS GLUCAGON LIKE PEPTIDE ALSO AVAILABLE ON THE MARKET AND WORK WELL.

THANKS,

Depending on the type of diabetes you have, either your body doesn’t make insulin, doesn’t make enough insulin, or doesn’t use insulin in the right way. Both the forms are equally bad and need good care and proper regular treatment. So take treatment sooon.
