he National Diabetes Institute provides a lot of great information all about diabetes, foods to eat and how to check your insulin levels that can be found on this website http://www.dysmenorrheaonline.com/

Diabetes.org also provides the following information that might be helpful.
Eat lots of vegetables and fruits. Try picking from the rainbow of colors available to maximize variety. Eat non-starchy vegetables such as spinach, carrots, broccoli or green beans with meals.

Severe & sudden swelling in your legs can be a sign of an injury to your leg or foot, or it can also be a sign of high blood pressure---both of these can be serious in persons with diabetes.

Depending on the cause of your sudden swelling, you should seek medical attention today.

You can read more about this at: How Serious Can Leg Swelling Be for Diabetics (click on orange hyperlink).
