Diabetics should not skip breakfast. Researchers tested blood sugar levels in type-2 diabetics after lunch. They found glucose levels were higher in those who did not eat breakfast.

Sugar levels after lunch were up to 95 percent lower in those who ate two meals. This is also true in non-diabetics.

Researchers say the results indicate that diabetics may be able to control sugar levels through the body's natural mechanisms, instead of through medication.

The study is published in the journal Diabetes.
