When I was getting eyes done all through last week - everything was checked - high blood pressure excellent although I;m on a wee tablet, also diabetes level was good again a wee tablet. But whatever has happened to me I cannot stop eating sweet stuff.

I'm craving like a piece of cake - last night watching I consumed a half bag of raspberry ruffles and chocolate buttons.

I never ate like that pre diabetes - the odd sweetie and that. I do need to stop this carry on - any advice please. I try and drink water but sick of it too.

Sticking my neck out here...but I find it incredibly irresponsible to tell someone who wants to avoid diabetes to "continue to feed your craving"...when it's far better to deal with it and not have an overwhelming craving in the first place. As long as you ingest sugar, the cravings will still bite you in the bum.
There's enough research about now to prove both that diabetes can be avoided...and that diabetics can come off meds...via diet.
pastafreak....are you referring to my posts?
I think that this site...diabetes UK...is better as it serms to be far more up to date with research. Especially low carb...and there are very useful forums.

There is so much misunderstanding about diabetes, both types, that I feel any fairly newly diagnosed person owes it to themselves to find out as much as they can about the condition. That way, some of the myths can be dispelled and much of the fear removed.

One last question - in the beginning some years ago when I found out that my late brother's girlfriend was Type 2 I knew that if she didn't change her lifestyle which she didn't - and so went on to get insulin and serious health problems - I automatically believed she became Type 1.

What is the differentiation between Type 1 needing insulin and Type 2 needing insulin.
Jenny, if you look at my first link, there is an explanation of the types of diabetes.

Sqad @ 12:25...it was really to anyone who thinks giving into cravings by eating bags of sweets is ok. Especially if eating those sweets...amongst other things...may contribute to them developing diabetes.
