I disagree. Diabetes deserves such an ugly title because of how ugly it is. "Disease" fits it just fine. Diabetes is on its own,I just fight against it.
By eating smaller portions of food throughout the day, my body did not have a lot of excess sugar (glucose) to store. Instead, the glucose was used for energy; immediately. Subsequently, my blood sugar levels normalized, I burned fat instead of a built up glucose, and I shed weight.
