No laxative is good as most of them have sugar in it, it better to take natural fibres like vegetbale and fruits to have smooth and soft stools to prevent constipation is what i feel.

Hello! I am 37 years old, and have diabeties, but it s only been a month since my doctor told me so. I m muslim, and during Ramadan fasting diabeties got to me. My doctor is usually telling me my diabeties rate is 500+. I m living in Asia at the moment. What should I do? Is there a medical cure? Because I m still young, I don t want to have diabeties until old-age. The doctors here said most foods I shouldn t eat/drink. And the doctors here always give loads of medicine, I don t thnk any of it ends up to be any use. Please could you help me? Thanks.
