Dear Diabetic
Please consult a clinical dietitian ASAP. Because of the cancer and the diabetes, you need to obtain individual dietary advice. Check the List of Dietitians on this Website or phone 082-593-0276 or send an e-mail to sscharf@nhcltd.com or look in your local telephone directory or Yellow Pages, to find a dietitian in your area. The dietitian will help you by working out a liquid or semi-liquid diet that contains all the necessary nutrients but takes the diabetes, medications and the cancer into account.
Best regards
DietDoc
