    I am 49 years old and I have always had quite a lot of sugar in my diet. I have like a 1 litre bottle of coca cola a day, This I would say is the largest daily dose of sugar I get from the bottle of cola. I do also have sugar on my cereal though as well. I don't really feel anything out of the ordinary although I do admit that the cola does give me a lot of excess energy. But that is surely down to thr caffeine. I was just thinking because I drink a 1 litre bottle of coca cola a day, could I have diabetes? Or am I worrying over nothing? I mean if I did have diabetes, would I physically know about it?

  • According to my mother Type 2 diabetics can't go in comas or get low glucose levels. Is this actually true or is she lying?

    Best answer: Your mother is incorrect and if you follow her advice you may end up falling into a coma if your insulin dives too low. Since she is not your doctor, do not take her advice. Diabetic persons CANNOT do a body detox such as the one you are describing, it would be life threatening to do so. Whatever your mother... show more
    Best answer: Your mother is incorrect and if you follow her advice you may end up falling into a coma if your insulin dives too low. Since she is not your doctor, do not take her advice. Diabetic persons CANNOT do a body detox such as the one you are describing, it would be life threatening to do so. Whatever your mother thinks worked for her, is actually only partially true. Even if she was NPO before surgery, she would have been given an IV full of a saline solution to keep her hydrated before surgery. Talk to your doctor if this is still an issue. take care.

Years ago when I got the A1c test done I was pre diabetic and told to change diet but I didn't listen to the advice and less than 6 months later next blood tests showed I was now type 2 diabetic so at least you have a chance to prevent it being type 2. Good Luck

  • Is spaghetti that is laced with lots of fiber and protein okay to eat for diabetics?

    Best answer: Spaghetti is also laced with lots of carbohydrates too, which is glucose, which breaks down into sugar. I don’t know much about diabetes as a disease and the diet restrictions that are involved. All the information I do have is Spaghetti eventually will break down into sugar.

    Best answer: Diabetis isn't caused by what you eat it's hereditary. It's causes are from a persons genes, nothing else. You definitely do not have diabetes because you ate something. It doesn't happen that way.

    Yes, there is no cure for diabetes. Although it is not cureable many people who have diabetes live a long and healthy life just by maintaining a certain diet that keeps their sugar levels balanced, other people take insulin medication which is both in a pill form or injected with a needle. Diabetes can be fatal but it's fatality rates is very low and a person with it doesn't have a numbered amount of days or time left to live, they can live until they pass on from old age as long as they stick to the diet and keep their sugar levels balanced.
