I agree with your sound advise on getting professional medical consultation (although it was interpreted by some as being a bit strong) but being a type II diabetic for almost 2 years has me concerned with your comment about the value of testing blood sugar. How else are you supposed to determine if changes to diet and exercise are having a positive effect? Wait every 3 months for your A1C test??? As for being hydrated, I consider that part of eating a balanced diet and general good health ...
I'll PM you tomorrow about the studies. If I don't, just ping me by PM and I'll give you some detailed info.
