Thanks for visiting our web site. You may not be aware that a major cause of diabetes is the diet you eat. If you change your diet, it will help stop the symptoms you are having at no additional cost and you might be able to avoid the need for medication. Be sure to check with your doctor if you decide to try changing your diet.
The main problem in most people's diets are refined sugar and refined white flour products, white rice is also not healthy for diabetics. Many foods you buy in the stores contain these unhealthy ingredients. For some ideas on healthy diets to control your blood sugar, check out the following pages on our web site:http://www.diabetes-guide.org/diabetic-diet.htmhttp://www.diabetes-guide.org/glycemic-index.htmhttp://www.diabetes-guide.org/glycemic-list.htmhttp://www.diabetes-guide.org/weight-loss-diabetes.htmhttp://www.diabetes-guide.org/diabetic-diet.htm

It is very important to check your blood glucose levels regularly though, so we do recommend that you get a blood glucose meter. I looked on the web for you to see if you could get a free glucose meter, but could not find one. Try entering your local zip code at this web page to get local information for your area from the American Diabetes Association and possibly a free glucose meter:http://www.diabetes.org/communityprograms-and-localevents/whatslocal.jsp
You can often get a glucose meter at your local pharmacy very inexpensively or free, but be sure to check on the price of the test strips, they vary widely.
