Let me tell you one thing a diabetic diet is the best diet for any person and not exclusive to diabetics. So be happy that you have been made to take healthy foods which improve your diabetic status and also your overall health.

Trouble falling asleep n sometimes staying asleep. Reactine helps me sleep. Sometimes I Take 1/2 tablet of sleeping pill (zopiclone) but don t want to depend on that. Never had trouble before but retired 3 years ago. Wondering if I m not tired enough. Or a thyroid problem or something else. I am now 70 years old and look like 50 as people tell me and I still feel younger. I am an American Indian native and have diabetes and only on metformin and I have changed my diet to control diabetes better and have lost 55 lbs over years and 30 lbs within the last 3-4 years. Now if I can get a good nights sleep, it would be wonderful. What s your opinion ?
