i have recently learned that my fiance has diabeties not that this is a huge surprise but i dont know a whole lot about the disease my grandfather had it and lived with it for a long time but there were certain foods he couldn't have and when he died many years ago it was from cancer and not the diabeties so my question is have any of you personally had to deal with this disease do any of you know a good website to find out more detailed information on the disease i would appreciate any and all comments on this

The American Diabetes Association, (I cannot yet include links) is a great place to start. It is where I went when we found out that my husband was diabetic. As a comment, any excercise really does help to regulate the blood sugar.

We like to ride bicycles together. It gives us time together and excercise. We also bought a tread mill. most of the time it collects dust but when we use it we love it.

Well I had developed diabetes 8years back and i was quite overweight at that time. Though I am a doctor but didn't want to take medicines whole of my life so I took some Indian (Ayurvedic) remedies for a short time and started 'Yoga" regularly. I no longer , with the grace of God, have high blood glucose. I think ideal weight and Yoga combined with exercise can control diabetes to quite an extent and you know even medical books even recommend this now!

There are tons of websites out there with information. I actually compiled some of it on a CD at one time to give to someone who had it and ended up making a bunch of copies for other people I found out had it. I'll see if I can find it though any websites may have been taken down because it was several years ago.
