: : Someone close to me in my family is starting to take insuline with a needle in the stomach, he is around 49-50 years of age, we have a history of high sugar in the family on both sides. I was just wondering if there was anything i could do to help or is there any kind of exercises the person could do. High Blood pressure is also a problem, anyone's input would be helpfull.
: : thanks
: Get on a low carbohydrate diet. In particular, cut out the sugar (this includes honey, corn syrup products, and most fruits also) and starch (flour, potatoes, rice, corn, etc.). Read Dr. Bernstein's Diabetes Solution. It will be money well spent. Alan
Watching your carbs is a definite plus. Any nutritionist should be able to help you with that. I play a lot of sports and have found that weight lifting or anything that has to do with resistance training does wonders for my control. Spending as little as a half an hour every other day seems to keep my metabalism up and my numbers lower.
