Blood Sugar, Medicines and Diets

I am 59. About a year ago my BS Fasting was 93 against 116 and PP 176 against 168 as of now. I am conscious about diet. I do Pranayam for an hour early morning. I am consulting Endocrinologist and he is suggesting to restrict on diet to control BS. My Hb1Ac is 7.2. My height is 5 Ft. 4 Inch, and Weight is 55 Kg. Please give me advise.

Morning at 05:30 I take two cups of green tea, at 09:30 I take little boiled rice, one cup dal and green vegetable. Afternoon at around 01:00 PM I take two chapati with vegetable and Dahi. In the evening at 07:30 PM I take four chapati, green vegetable and at 09:30 PM I take one glass of cow milk and 10:30 PM I go to bed and I have sound sleep. I take about four litres of water every day>

From your reply it is apparent that you are vegetarian. It seems that some adjustment in your diet is required. Please cut down chapaties gradually and add some desi ghee, cream, butter , cheese and paneer etc to your diet. Please mention the cooking oil.

Please cut down on drinking water. Please go for some walking.

Thanks a lot for your advise. For cooking, we use sunflower oil.

Please do not use any refined oil. Use cooking oil which is traditionally used in your homes. Also you can add dry fruits like walnut and almonds with your tea. Not much but only 4-5 pieces each and supplement it with ground nut sos.

By the way are you using sugar etc ?
