diabetes is a disorder and not the disease. the good control of the diabetes is the key and it will decide the good health also. it is very important to have the frequent small meals a day. this is more important aspect of the diet .  also the content of the frequent small meals should be minimum with carbohydrate content and more in the vegetable and protein content. avoiding of the oiloy and fatty stuf is also essential.
