Hi AuntieM, my FIL has type2 diabetes & luckily we discovered it early. We gave him brown rice only no white rice. The serving portion must be small for each meal but give him multiple meals. Like instead of 3 meals a day, it will be 5. Fruits are not allow immediately after meal as the sugar level will be too high for the body. The selection of fruits also must be careful. We only give him apple, grape fruits, orange. Bitter melon (苦瓜)is also good for diabetes. Must be the smaller & bitter variety. It's the traditional remedy for managing diabetes & better to drink in the morning, empty stomach. Think you can buy the tea from TCM shop.
Read from a book that Cinnamon tea is good for type2 diabetes. It helps to control blood glucose & daily consumption may help to improve their ability to respond to insulin.
Recipe below:
Ingredients
100g cinnamon sticks
250ml hot water
Method
1) rinse & dried cinnamon sticks in an oven at 200oC
2) break cinnamon sticks into pieces. Grind it into powder. Sieve.
3) Put 1/4 tsp cinnamon powder into a cup. Pour in hot water & stir well. Cover for 10mins. Serve hot.
The Most important thing is he must exercise daily.
