Diabetes can be controlled without medicene for sometime by diet and exercise but ultimately you have to be on medicene.Avoid sugar,junk food,friedfood andfruit juices. Exercise regularly .You can have whey proteins available in market by different names.But not more than 30gms per day along with normal diet.
