  • Yes! I agree with what you wrote 100%. Since my diagnoses of diabetes on 9-8-11, I cut my carb consumption down about 75%, getting my carbs mostly from green leafy vegetables, & limited fruit.. Before the diagnoses, when I would wake up in the morning, my right hand would be very stiff, almost claw-like, & hard to work it open. This went on for about a year & a half, & then the diabetes diagnoses, I cut the carbs & no more stiffness! I told one of my Doctors, & he said that certain sugars are very inflammatory.I am amazed! - by SPOOKY711
