My mom has diabetes.
 
A month back my found out that she has diabetes and since then she has been on medicine( one pill/day ) which helps in keeping the Blood glucose to 150.
My mother has Wheat allergy and she suffers from the problem of blood pressure too. She is 55.
I want to know that is it possible to curb this disease as it has just started ?
Please help me i really love my mom.

Re: My mom has diabetes.
 
Diet and exercise are key with diabetes. Is it possible for her to see a diabetes educator or nutritionist? They can help her understand how food affects blood sugars, portion control, sample menus and such. If you live near your mom, perhaps you could walk with her several times a week.
