Diabetes & Hypertension

My wife has been living with above two problems including hypo thyroid for last 10 yrs or more. Now her sugar level is 126 fasting & BP 133/71. She has been taking ISTAMET 50/1000 FOR DIABETES & TAZLOC BETA 25MG both TWICE A DAY. Bu lately she is feeling headache most of the time and stomach pain. These are side effects of ISTAMET. But doctor is not changing the medicine which is very costly also. I request any one to suggest alternative medicine or generic equivalent of Istamet .

  • Change diet as diet is best medicine. LCHF diet works wonders.

  • Keep her carbohydrate intake between 10 and 14 portions per day (1 portion = 10g carbohydrate), ideally 3 meals x 4 carb portions. Follow this link uk.sitestat.com/diabetes/we...

    Ensure she eats low GI carbs, reducing intake of fructose too which glycosylates haemoglobin seven times as much as glucose. Follow this link glycemicindex.com/

    Make up the balance of her meals with natural, additive-free, unprocessed protein (palm-size or less) and natural fat foods such as meat, poultry, fish, seafood, eggs, cheese, coconut oil, palm oil (not hydrogenated), olive oil, and butter.

  • if I consume protein more then it causes raise in BP Totaly High Carb is definitely raises the level BS. now as using low carb the BS is normal both in FBS PPBS one hour and 2 hour but BP is raising Can u suggest any medicine suitable as my age is 60 now Please inform Thanks

  • Protein is limited each meal, as is carbohydrate. Natural-fat makes up the required macro-nutrient deficit as it is relatively inert; lower insulin level, lower leptin level, lower blood pressure and so on.

  • O K Thanks for rspond Can uplease inform which tablet is good for BP Now I am taken Temsan 20 mg 1-0-1 and Amlodac 10 mg 1-0-1

  • Thanks for respond Can u please inform what isthe main uses of legums tobe sprouted If sprouted the carbcontain in the legume is decreases if so how much of decreass what r the other nutritionalvalue after sprouted Thanks

  • See how these compare to what you usually have nutritiondata.self.com/food...

    Sprouting usually improves the digestion characteristics. Sometimes soaking dried legumes overnight in a mild-acidic solution such as lemon juice or vinegar is sufficient in that it reduces toxicity.

    With grains however you often need to lower the Glycaemic Load, by sprouting or adding fat/acidic food for instance.

  • Thank u very much for reply Sorry Sir Iamnot able to read today and also further one week since I am goigtour for today night and after one week I am back to network and seen completely Excuse me Sir Thanks

  • Great information, I really appreciate it. I have diabetes and would really love to get off of insulin and maybe try some more natural methods. Has anybody used any natural remedies that have worked? Thanks in advance.

  • Diabetes can be reversed by natural home remedies, despite what some people might say. As a 30-year diabetes sufferer, I know how frustrating it can be to find answers. Fortunately, my diabetes is nowhere near what it once was. Just wanted to share a something that helped me out a lot when I was struggling to get better:


    Best of luck to everyone!
