In 1999 I was diagnosed with type II diabetes. It led to a lot of lifestyle changes for me. My diabetes is controlled now with diet, exercise and oral medication. It really isn't too bad once you get use to it-there are a lot worse things to have. Even though I come from a family where diabetes is really prevalent I really didn't know a lot. The links here are to both information sites and food and recipe sites. Certainly the Internet can never substitute for your doctor but I am one of those people who wants to know everything about my condition and what I can do. The recipe sites are really helpful. It can be really hard to find good things to cook. I find that if I have meals that are varied and actually taste good it is a lot easier to avoid the bad stuff.
