Hello everyone - I'm working on a new ebook and would like some feedback on the topics.  If there's a topic that anyone thinks should be included, please do so.
 
1) weight as a factor in the increase of diabetes non only in adults but also children
 
2) sugar substitutes (not splenda or any other chemically produced product) that do not increase sugar levels
 
3) Natural products that help maintain blood sugar levels or lower them without side effects
 
Thank you for your assistance.

For part 3 of your question:

One tablespoon of psyllium fiber taken with or immediately after a meal will level out a blood sugar spike for over four hours or until the next meal. Psyllium does, however have some side effects in some people, ie. bloating and gas.

Thank you Jeannie for your response to my post - refer to #3.  Psyllium does have that effect on my so I look for something else.  I like it though because it can help other diabetics to
level their sugar level.
 
Appreciate it.  Thanks.

Thank you Bohica.  I tried Stevia in packet form and didn't like the aftertaste but someone did advise to use the liquid form which has no aftertaste.  I'm using Xylo Sweet which is also safe for diabetics and has no aftertaste.  I will try liquid Stevia once I'm finished with XS packets.

wbisme,
I was part of a diabetes study using psyllium and it's affects on post-prandial blood sugar levels. I can't comment on polycarbophil because it wasnt' used. I know the psyllium worked on all of the peeps in the study I was in... One of the participants had a morning sugar of over 400 when he came in and his dropped to 200 that day after breakfast... That was weird! They booted him out of the study and sent him back to his doctor for re-evaluation.

Anyway... it really did level out blood sugar spikes. Although the products that it is being studied for (Kelloggs Cereals) are not on the market yet, or may never get to market, the professor doing the study told us to go ahead and add this to our regimen as a diabetes intervention.

The amount that was recommended to us to take after a meal was one tablespoon in a glass of water. The numbers achieved in the study at Michigan State University were truly remarkable. I wish they would make a cereal containing psyllium since it would be a great boon to both diabetics and regulars. I do not have the bloating or gas problems and find the psyllium is a big help, especially after an overindulgence (like Thanksgiving!)
