Dietary modifications that you can institute to complement your conventional diabetes mellitus treatment include:1. Begin your day with a high fiber breakfast cereal as it is an excellent source of water soluble fiber which reduces the rate at which carbohydrates are absorbed and thus maintains steadier blood sugar levels.
