Eat four small meals a day
No fasting or feasting
Avoid--sugar, sweets, maida products including white bread, white rice, sweet fruits like bananas, mangoes, grapes, custard apples (sitaphal) and chickoos.
Take only half spoon of salt a day or take low sodium salts (contain 16% instead of 40% sodium).
Avoid -red meat, chicken with skin, egg-yolk, fried foods, butter or ghee.

How does one regulate their diet with diabetes? I believe its the Islets of Langerhan in the Pancreas which are failing to produce enough or correct insulin molecules, which are required for cells to process sugars (And other carbohydrates? Fats? Oils? Dont know that yet)... And a deficiency in this I guess is what causes diabetic seizures? If this is correct, then what is wrong with the chemistry of those cells that produce the insulin, and how does one regulate their diet to balance the Ph, remove the toxins, and get the proper nutrition to heal those cells?
