Rubbish, You obviously never came across an earlier post of mine outlining my discovery of the benefits of green tea leaves.

Let me just say that the so called diabetic specialists are not always correct as they contradict each other citing diet and exercise as the only option.

A DIABETIC HAS TO BE HIS OR HER OWN SPECIALIST.

Prior to discovering the benefits of green tea leaves, and other beneficial foods, my quarterly levels were always above 10, rising to 12.9 at which time faced with the prospect of going on insulin injections I embarked upon a thorough research, learned the glycaemic values of all foods discovering that cherries for instance have the lowest GV of all fruit at 22 and water melon the highest at over 80.

I have been a diabetic for 16 years, I do understand the disease and I do understand what foods are good and what foods spike me up.

By the way, all so called specialists advised me to restrict my wine intake. True that wine initially reduces levels but in the morning increases the levels.

Sex is also very good with controlling diabetes, alas I forgot what this activity is for !!!!

Sorry to disappoint you and your illusions Milty, but you stated that at the same time you were also made aware of the GI of various foods and this is the most significant contribution to the ongoing maintenance of your condition - not green tea!

And as for your recommendations pour moi ... I do not have diabetes, nor have EVER had diabetes. I am 100% realistic about the benefits of diet and exercise, as well as the lack of them!

To me and everyone else ... eat less carbs, get off your ass/arse and exercise! :D

Green tea leaves have helped to control my BLs
as well as avoiding foods that are not conducive to diabetic controls such as white bread, pasta, rice,potatoes etc.
Boiled potatoes are much better than roast, fried or oven baked. I eat new potatoes weekly and have no spikes.
Quails eggs are also helpfull in the control BLs, i usually bring lots from Belarus since i find them the best taste.
As i said earlier a diabetic must be his own specialist.

I had hoped there would be someone with Type 1 diabetes who could give some facts about the treatment available in Cyprus.

Many people who have type 2 diabetes could reverse their condition by a sensible eating programme and there is an increase amongst obese children. Vast quantities of green tea can apparently increase the metabolic rate.

I shall suggest that the person who has Type 1 diabetes comes here on holiday and goes to the hospital to find out more.

Thanks
