    Friends,

    I wanted to start a support group for women who have diabetes or have a spouse who has diabetes. If we organize ourselves, we can share all tips emotional, medical, dietary, lifestyle etc to manage a life with diabetes. Please jump in if you are interested.

    hi akayla,

    count me in. My father is a diabetic. mother in law died due renal failure from diabetes. have a friend who is so well controlled and a role model for how you should live when you are diabetic.

    And coming to my family, always with a nag at the back if any of us would be one due to hereditary factors...so I am here here to support myself and all as a group

    Let us start ...............

    Hi dear
    i am with you. My dear ones are diabetic. I am not really sure what diet plan i should follow.I try to use less of oil as i can in my prepration.Please help me in preparing multiple menu options for breakfast lunch mid snacks and dinner.Say for breakfast there are alleast 10 options.How about a chart.Lets discuss and prepare a chart together.Let it be tasty and healty . Some of my options are oats uttapam, oats idil,suji idli,non fried bread pakoras(pan baked).But its all hit and try. I want a diet chart without guilt. A satisfaction that i am giving them healthy food.
    Recently a doctor at ramdev's patangali said no curd or butter milk
    I am confused . they use to take curd.
    Keep posting
