for the whole life. We have a glucose meter to check the blood sugar regularly at home.
our diet is cholesterol free and we are taking in diet some following items.
1. Whole grain bread
2. Green vegetables boiled
3. one piece of fruit (like Apple)
4. barley
5. Skimmed milk
6. Roasted chickpea.

Doctor

A:   Hi
with study it is confirmed that diabetes can be prevented by exercise, diet, and lifestyle modification in many persons.
But once diabetes developed and it is not controlled, medicines need to be taken, otherwise it may damage other vital organs.
You are on good diet, but as a physician, I remind you that if this fails donot hesitate to take medicines
hope this will helpful
