g stockstudio/shutterstock When you eat, your body changes most of the food you digest into glucose (a form of sugar). A hormone called insulin allows this glucose to enter all the cells of your body. There it is used for energy. Insulin is produced by the pancreas. In someone who has type 2 diabetes, the pancreas doesn’t make enough insulin or the body’s cells can’t use insulin properly (called insulin resistance). This causes glucose to build up in your blood instead of moving into the cells. Too much glucose in the blood can lead to serious health problems that damage the blood vessels, nerves, heart, eyes, and kidneys.
Surgeons could also transplant insulin-producing pancreatic cells from donors. Some people already benefit from the early progress of research into islet cell transplants.

With real delicious food filling your tummy, you won’t believe it all adds up to only about 600 calories.
These include sulphonylureas, which stimulate the pancreas to make more insulin, alpha glucosidase inhibitors, which slow down the intestine's absorption of starchy foods, in turn slowing down any rise in blood sugar levels after meals, and prandial glucose regulators, which are taken half an hour before you eat and encourage the production of insulin.
Keep a consistent record of the results you get. Note the pattern of results at different times of the day. If there are any great changes in the result from your "usual" pattern consider the following:
