    Diabetes management is all about controlling your sugar intake. Simple sugars like those found in candy and soft drinks flood your blood stream with glucose which can overload your system because there is not enough insulin to process it. Complex carbohydrates like fiber and starches break down more slowly and this give your body time to process. Other energy sources like protein are very good as well. Creating exchange lists of foods that have the same nutritional value and effect on blood sugar can help you manage this more effectively. Eating healthy and getting exercise will help you loose weight which is another risk factor for diabetes suffers. The website below by the Mayo clinic has extensive instruction to help create a diabetes diet plan.

    Some early studies indicate that cinnamon can help lower blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes. Improved hemoglobin A1C levels were seen in a study where patients took cinnamon twice a day for 90 days. The research looks promising, but more studies are needed to validate the findings and to learn more about cinnamon’s mechanism of action.
