Type II Diabetes control

Diabetes is a condition where the body cannot regulate blood sugar levels, because of problems with the hormone insulin.
In type 1 diabetes, the body is unable to produce any insulin.
In type 2 diabetes, not enough insulin is produced or the insulin that is made by the body doesn’t work properly. Simple ways to control type 2 diabetes, if a small, protein rich snack is taken first thing in the morning, and breakfast is delayed for two hours, the rise in blood glucose after breakfast is reduced by about one half. This is called the second meal effect and although it has been recognised in non-diabetic individuals for almost a century, it has only recently been shown to work in people with type 2 diabetes.
Secondly, if you go out for a half hour walk after a meal (or do any physical activity) then the rise in blood glucose will be very much less compared to just sitting in a chair. This is because muscle tissue takes up glucose more rapidly during exercise, and the meal time rise in glucose is blunted. By
