Are there Cures for Diabetes?
If the beta cells which produce insulin in your pancreas have not been completely destroyed and depleted, Dr William Davies (Author of the book 'Wheat Belly') believes that Diabetes can be reversed and cured. It can virtually always be controlled by a proper diabetes diet of low carbohydrates (20g per day), complete removal of wheat/gluten containing foods and regular exercise, but if necessary insulin or diabetes medications. Although the diagnosis comes as a shock to patients, it is not the major problem that it is generally believed to be - most patients lead normal lives.
Diabetes and Exercise
Exercise is important as a treatment of diabetes because it really benefits your health. Exercise is any physical activity that keeps you fit. Good examples are brisk walking (eg 2km per day), jogging, tennis, skiing and aerobics. Aim for at least 30 minutes 3 times a week, but daily is ideal. Go slowly when you start.
