I am a diabetic patient for the past 7 years taking insulin after bypass surgery. I have totally stopped taking sugar and sweets and even my favourite fruits like mango, banana and jackfruit. I have even stopped coffee and take only tea. I use sugarfree or total, equal etc. with my tea, greentea etc. Should I stop that too? I don't mind sacrificing this too provided this is really helpful. Perhaps I shall sacrifice everything rice being the last and then of course LIFE. Take it easy.
