    I was diagnosed with slow onset type 1 diabetes in february of this year. Since I started insulin i have gained nearly 4 stone in weight. Doctors advised that Insulin would probably do this. I Some time like to pick on food during meals, which i know doesnt help my weight gain. So I decided to try a healthier option, eat things that were not going to raise my sugar levels or put too much weight on me. I heard about Pumpkin seeds and the beneficial properties, and now in between meals i will have some pupkin seeds. To my amazement i have seen quite a difference once i have eaten them, i do not need as much insulin.
    I am still in the early days of this so i will update as soon as i get a better idea the results.
