Diabetes mellitus, or diabetes, refers to the medical condition where the human body is afflicted with high blood sugar levels. This can happen either because the pancreas does not produce insulin or the cells do not react to the insulin that is produced. The good news is that this incurable disease can be easily managed and contained with the help of insulin and a diabetes specific diet.
Note the foods that are "free" in reasonable portions on your meal plan. Use an indelible marker to write it right on the container. Make sure you stick with the serving size to avoid having too many carbs. Most diabetic meal plans consider anything under 5 crabs per serving "free" food, however, if you are a low carb plan, that number will be lower.
