With the growing number of overweight and obese adults, more people are being diagnosed with Type II Diabetes. Many times this disease can be reversed by losing weight and eating right. Those who were diagnosed as children often have Type I diabetes and may have to use insulin to control the disease. Either Type I or Type II diabetics need to eat a diabetic diet. Certain foods such as pasta will spike a person’s insulin, something that isn’t ideal when you have diabetes. By choosing your meals wisely, however, you can control the disease. These bloggers know what they are talking about because they also eat a diabetic diet.
