I am a diabetic since last October. In the beginning the sugar level was on the higher side. After medication( Allopathic), I could able to control the sugar level from 430 to 150.During Aug '13 I checked my sugar level and the FBS was 72mg/dL and PP was 152 mg/dL. The HBA1C was noticed as 6.8%. The MEAN BLOOD GLUCOSE(MBG) was 144 mg/dL. This could be possible only because I was strict on my diet. In the morning I was taking 1 spoon of Methi powder mixed with Daal chini, Ajwaine,and powdered Ilaayachi in a mixture form early morning after brushing teeth. My Break fast was 2 idly and a small bowl of daliya. For my lunch I used to take only 2spoonsof dry veggie curry with 2 glass of butter milk. For night 1 raw cucumber, 1 onion,2-3 tomato nicely chopped and mixed with curd and a pinch of salt and pepper then added and the same was being consumed by me.I am on medication as prescribed by Doctor. I reduced the dosage of Allopathic medicine gradually but still continuing.
Now I was advised by my friends that I should go for Raagi balls for my lunch or Oats. I want sincere opinion, whether it is advisable to take Raagi balls or Oats in the afternoon or in the night just for a change? will it effect in any way for a diabetic patient? I would invite different suggestions from our friends ,who are suffering from diabetes and also from Doctors, who can advise me regarding the consumption of Raagi or Oats+.
I would appreciate, if I get number of suggestion from well wishers as well as friends.
Expecting replies from friends
