Hi... It is your fasting blood sugar that you have checked and it is very high. Diabetes can be kept under by proper medication, regular exercises and proper diabetic diet. Diabetes is can be controlled and cannot be treated completely. There are few treatment option with stem cell administration under research stages that has been tried to cure diabetes. But it has not been still approved. So there is no way that the diabetes will go away as of now. We need to wait and see in the future if this can be achieved.. Hoping for the good..

Initially in the early stages of disease, your diabetes can be controlled by following a strict diabetes.

But it is not curable disease, once you have lost out on pancreas cells that secrete insulin- It is irreversible.

I am in need of some ideas of foods that diabetics can eat.? I have some cookbooks for Diabetes but sometimes don t agree on what a diabetic can eat. Any ideas or personal experience Jeanie, you hit the nail on the head . That is the way I have always felt about what I can eat. I am going to have to quit coffee as I cannot learn to drink it without sugar and substitute sweetners don t work. I don t like the taste. Many thanks to all who answered.

Hey, A few months ago I went on a extremley limiting diet... During this time I experienced severe dehydration, dry mouth, nausea, and lightheadedness. Once I started to go back on a more normal diet, the symptoms resided. However, during the past few days I ve started to experience more of the dehyrdation. To make matters worse, I have not slept in the past two days because of schoolwork.... Now I feel extreme dehydration, nausea, and lightheadedness again... My question is... Do I have diabetes, or are my poor habits causing diabetes-like symptoms? If I continue this pattern, could I develop diabetes, and, if I make better choices can I reverse the diabetes? Thank you!

I have numbness in my lips, tongue and slightly in my hands and feet. I have nausea and weakness. My doctor had me do a 3 hour glucose test and determined I am hypoglycemic. When I feel this way and check my blood sugar it is in a safe range. My problem is I have these symptoms from low 100 s at times, but very bad once in low 90 s and 80 s. It is not dropping below 70. Do I even need to worry about this and do I treat it the same as if it were lower?
