Wikipedia defines diabetes as a group of metabolic disorders in which a person has a high blood pressure.

The third type may be when women suffer from high blood glucose during pregnancy.
Some interesting stuff which I recently read relating to diabetes might prove useful to you. Most people who are infected with cytomegalovirus are not affected with any symptoms.

Now regarding the diet of diabetes limit highly refined carbohydrates like bread, pasta, rice, soda, candy and snack foods. Include brown rice, whole wheat pasta, cauliflower, sweet potato, whole wheat bread, oats and rolled oats. Including non starchy vegetables, fruits, unbroken grains, brown rice, whole barley and millet would be hugely beneficial. Beans, fish, skinless chicken, olive oil, nuts and avocadoes are some of the best foods for diabetes. In a nutshell avoid or reduce the intake of concentrated sweets, white potatoes and saturated fats and you should completely eliminate hydrogenated fats that includes trans fats too.
