In 2004 I was diagnosed a diabetic. I was 54 yr old then. It was just a chance that I went to the doctor and he asked me to get my sugar level checked. It was 600. He told me that I should have been in coma with that reading, Next day I checked my fasting Sugar, It was 440. It is then that i felt the first serious health alarm. My father died of diabetes with failed kidneys.
Doctor advised me to keep control on my diet and go for a walk every day for 5-6 Kms. I also took metmorfin for about three months and when my sugar level came to 140, stopped the medicines.
Now I am on regular walks, recently joined a gym to exercise for one hr every day. I dont take sugar in my tea. Once in a while take a desert and some sweets (quantity restricted). Have cut down on my chapatti intake to one in lunch and one in dinner. I love curd, so eat lot of it. Once in a while (three to four times in a month) I take a drink or beer. Eat lot of green vegs and salads (nothing specific). For the last seven years am keeping a stable glucose reading of FF 125 and PP <140. I take measurement once in a week at home and once in six months in a polyclinic.
Am keeping fit, more energetic, feel young in all activity and can do more work than even a younger guy. I refuse to retire and work 8-10 hrs every day except Sunday. I dont know if i AM ON THE RIGHT TRACK WITHOUT MEDICINES BUT SURELY i FEEL BETTER IN LIFE.
