  • Superb...... Thanx for the good information...look forward to have more like this.....

  • While I agree with Mr Bhujanga and Nitins, it is important that calorie intake does not exceed 1800 K calorie and the items suggested are taken in correct proportion. Physical exercise like walking, swimming, jogging etc is must for around 30 minutes to 45 minutes as per physical condition, individual preferences and choice.

  • From my personal experience, the more number of times one eat, the more is the load on one's pancreas. The PANCREAS of a diabetic is already weak &/or damaged. Then loading it more is suicidal or murderous. Obviously it is not good for the patient.
