My son is 3 years old, and he does not want to eat anything except sweets. Does this increase his risk for diabetes?
Ampills Answer
Anthony, in theory - yes, it does. But it depends on your family history of diabetes. Do not keep sweets in your house. Instead, keep only healthy sneaks. The absence of appetite is normal for such age.
Hello! Are there any herbal supplements which would help to prevent diabetes? My blood sugar is currently a little bit more than normal.
Ampills Answer
Tyler, hello. There are no ways to prevent diabetes with supplements, only healthy way of life. However, if you lose excessive weight, stop smoking, and start exercising, you can prevent it. Try Stop Smoking Patch if you smoke, Acomplia if you need to reduce your appetite, and take long walks on fresh air.

Ampills Answer
Hello, Begench. Please tell us, is this diabetes type I or II? For these two types of diabetes there are quite different treatments. The thing you should realize is that diabetes is the disease, which can not be cured completely. However, the levels (or %) of glucose in blood can be significantly reduced, and the general condition of person with diabetes can be really improved with healthy lifestyle (reduction of sugar and alcohol consumption, fresh air, 2-3 vegetable meals daily, stop smoking), and modern medicines. The choice of anti-diabetic medication depends on the type of diabetes person has, and some of personal health characteristics. Mainly it is determined by the doctor.
