Hi hopr-ga,

   If you are really concerned about the negative effects of diabetes, I feel
you should also look for the necessary supplements that could help you over
the longterm, in addition to necessary lifestyle changes & diet. 
Chromium picolinate, L-Carnitine, B6, Niacin, Alphalipoeic acid are just a few 
that could help you in that respect. There are also supplements that you
could use at times when you diet/excercise program falters, and you still
want to keep the sugar level from spiking.
