Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

Diabetes is a condition which can be controlled and brought to normal limits but cannot be cured , hence if you want to keep the sugar under control , which in turn means leading a normal healthy life , you must follow a good diabetic diet, along with this, physical activity daily is compulsory , since diabetes involves the heart, kidneys , muscles, everything , you must take care that your cholesterol levels are normal , blood pressures also and weight correct for your height .

By these measures we can control the levels, but this does not mean the insulin has to be stopped , with sugar readings , the doctor may reduce the dose of insulin or change to oral tablets depending on many factors, insulin is preferred to tablets once started on .

Wish you good health
