I too am a diabetic. When I was first diagnosed I tried all the sugar substitutes. They all left a metallic taste in my mouth. So I made a decision. I will give up all sugar items as long as I can have regular sugar in my coffee. And I stuck by that. I fought being a diabetic. Then I got the message. My first step was to start losing the weight. Exercise was not possible. I have arthritis in my left hip and spine. Be calcium deposits right at the base of my spine. It makes walking very difficult. Then I concentrated on the foods I was eating. Vegetables became my best friends. After 15 years of the battle, I am off my medications of insulin and control my diabetes with diet alone. I have had some close calls over the years and had to call 911. But lessons have been learned.
