When you received your Type 2 diabetes diagnosis, your first thought was probably to be frightened by it. But once the initial panic and other emotions subside a little bit, you have to go to work on the things that you can change.

And this is going to be a short list of some of the different foods that you can eat in order to control the effects of your Type 2 diabetes.
