In brief: Weight loss

The best way that i can think of to control diabetes is weight loss.
Many of my diabetic patients who lose weight can cut or in some cases eliminate a lot of their medications for diabetes. Unfortunately it is sometimes quite difficult for diabetics to lose weight. A low glycemic diet which is one that does not spike the blood sugar is recommended. Talk with your doctor about this.
