Diabetes (Definition)

Diabetes is a disease of increased blood glucose levels. Glucose is a type of sugar that comes from the intake of food.

Can't hurt.: Might as well use it. There is no evidence that coffee, brown sugar or cinnamon is particularly helpful.... On the other hand those same substances in moderation won't harm you..... So if you like them, use them. ...Read more
