Eggs and cheese: You must reduce your carbohydrate intake. Eat plenty of chesse and eggs at every meal (or stop being a vegetarian and eat meats) and strictly reduce your carbs. Otherwise you will definitely continue to develop diabetes. I have helped many patients reduce their chances of getting diabetes by putting them on low carb diets. www.mdwellnessmd.com.

Dr. Gabriel cousens has found that raw vegan diets can reverse diabetes- even a month or 2 may help- see http://bit.Ly/14ozp4j herbs ; supplements can help dramatically- see http://bit.Ly/1fuhuyp hctz raises blood sugar. Exercise can help as well.
