Yes I have what is called "The Silent Killer", Type 2 Diabetes. The reason it got this name is because you can have this disease for years before you even know it. Most people find out they have diabetes when they have to go to a doctor with complication that this disease causes. November is the month for Diabetes Awareness. I have learned how to keep my disease under control with diet and exercise. And I have a blog that explains what this disease is, what the symptoms are, what complications it can cause, and how to control it. Type 2 diabetes is inherited...My grandmother had diabetes. I have 6 children and none of them have this disease. It can be caused from overeating. Everyone should be tested for Diabetes. Diabetes has nothing to do with the mind. Eating chocolate has nothing to do with diabetes. Overeating of any bad carbohydrate is not good. Where did you get this misleading information?

Good for you for spreading the information... the problem is that many people will listen to old wives tales instead of searching for facts. My husband's type-2 is inherited... he has always been thin and still is, so when he was told about his sugar levels after his flight physical, he was stunned. He lost his pilot's license until he could prove he was in control, and that was a good wake up call for him. He rebelled for a while, like everyone does, but is doing well now.

Over indulgence of any food is bad but a diabetic can eat chocolate. The chocolate it's self will not cause diabetes. It is mostly caused from eating too much fats and carbohydrates and not enough fiber. This is what causes weight gain. Asians are not prone to be overweight but they have a higher risk of developing this disease. To understand this you would have to know what diabetes is. Please read the begining of this blog it will explain everything. http://living-with-type-2-diabetes.blogspot.com/2007/05/you-are-not-alone.html

Diabetic is an inherent disease in my family life record. That is why I take my time to listen and learn homeopathy treatment, where it discern me to know how to enhance the weak kidney functions. What category of food(need more green leaf food as it contain 'chlorophyll'), what kind of taste of the food. Remember BiSa-So-Se for the taste arrangement in our daily diet. Breakfast - BiSa - Bitter & Salty Luch - So - Sour Dinner - Se - Sweet. HAPPY DAPPY.

It's good to prevent high blood sugar - I am diabetic, and is trying hard to control it....Hope I'd be able to sustain it...
Yup, I have it...I guess it is hereditary. Since I could not do a daily 15 minute walk, I just exercise every morning using a treadmill. I'm on medication now that's why my blood sugar is under control...you're right. I'm so scared that my diabetes will damage my kidneys, that's why I really make it a point to heed the advice of my doctor and nutritionist, especially avoiding too much sweets in my diet. Dieting is never easy, but I'm really trying...
