LCHF means low carbohydrate and high fat diet, follow the diet pattern suggested by Concerned.

I thought LCHF means Low carbohydrate and high fibre diet, and not high fat diet. I think high fat diet will not help in controlling diabetes and there are more chances that our cholestrol level will go up. Please confirm.

Please give a try to Low carbohydrate and High Fat diet only for three months and do your blood test and then decide your self weather fat is good or bad. Adopt LCHF diet pattern and get rid of your diabetes or lower your intake of medicines You have to select food with low glycemic index and high in fat content. Some of the food items I can suggest and remaining you can search yourself. Keep a watch on your FBS and PPBS numbers till everything is settled and if you find yourself consistently hitting in 120-140 range for PPBS , reduce your diabetic medicines, if required. AVOID WHEAT, RICE , BREAD & OTHER CEREALS ALTOGATHER OR LIMITING TO 100 gms CARBS. PER DAY.1. Take Hot Veg Soup Non Strained with 30gms full fat milk cream or around 20gm butter ...

1. large cup measuring around 350ml and enjoy this with a 30-50 grams MIXED NUTS ( Almonds, Walnuts & Peanuts, no cashew), OR Paneer Pakodas OR Dal Chillas.

2. Take all dairy products, it should be full fat stuff (so no skimmed stuff), full fat milk curd which is > 1 day old, butter, cheese, clarified butter .

3. No biscuits, cracker, wafers , potatoes chips etc. Being vegetarian it limits your options.

4. If you are not a thyroid patient then add supplement: ALPHA LIPOIC ACID 300mg Capsule OID. (once a day).

5. Add paneer to your menu, and also eggs if you can afford to take, since scientifically eggs are supposed to be a vegetarian diet.

6. Restrict to just one chapati/meal, and subsequently one chapai per day

7. Fruits -- apple and citrus fruits. No JUICES at all.

8. Restrict on carrot, peas and beans, cabbage, cauliflower, shimla mirch and other vegetable having low glycemic index. No potato or potato products at all.

9. DRINK LOTS OF GREEN TEA. IT’S A GOOD DIURETICS.

10. Take vegetarian preparations with salads and of course nice quantity of Chutney made from Coconut and daal etc ... 100gms chutney can be great filler and coconut is source of FAT. Try masala dosa with mashed cauliflower and other vegetables, with peanuts to the masala which adds again good quantity of fat ... mashed cauliflower is a great substitute for potato as far as taste is concerned.

11. Take 100ml milk boiled with turmeric and pepper in morning and the same at night . 12. Every bit of movement and calorie burning counts ... minimum walking for15 minutes after every meal within the house is ok. Never use LIFT.

16. ONE VEGETARIAN DISH : Green Salad comprising 1 pc each of onion, carrot, cucumber, simla mirchi, 1 cup of cabbage. All are cut to small pcs, mix lot of curds to it, also add 2-3 spoons of olive oil. Add 1 cup of cream. In addition as a side plate , have 2 boiled eggs or 1/2 cup of paneer. If required eat any vegetable, not Potato or any thing made of Potatos.

13. Try adding sesame seeds to salad and take nuts ( Almonds, Walnuts &peanuts, No cashews ) upto 100gms.per day, take stuff made from coconut.

14. FOR NON VEGETARIAN : You can take freely Chicken, Meat, Fish, Pork & Eggs ( Whole Egg With Yolk ).

15. In addition do take Karela juice, amla juice, 5 mg fenugreek seeds soaked in water for over night before every meal, jamun seeds powder, 4 garlic pearls cut into pieces with water & cinnamon powder with water or in tea etc.

Your readings are fine, ED is an issue for which get lipid profile. ED sometime warns about impending CAD. Get Hb1Ac every quarter. Also get once a year LFT and KFT. Mind it, I am not a medic pl.

Bad advice. Fasting blood glucose should be between 70 and 110; 110 is still higher than optimal. Whilst authorities accept <180 PP, <140 is optimal for those that truly have their blood glucose under control. Diabetics are at increased risk BECAUSE of their blood glucose. Triglycerides consist of a backbone of carbohydrate (glyc-) that holds together three fatty acids. Control your carb intake and it will help your blood lipids too.

Keep your 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...

Eat low GI carbs. Follow this link glycemicindex.com/

Make up the balance of your meals with natural, additive-free, unprocessed protein and fat foods such as meat, poultry, fish, seafood, eggs, cheese, coconut oil, palm oil (not hydrogenated), olive oil, butter, ghee, duck fat, goose fat, and lard.

My wife is a diabetic for 20 years, but not on insulin. Recently she started yoga. Surprisingly the blood sugar levels both F and PP have come down.

Treatment wise it's OK. Some more dietary restrictions and physical exercise would bring your sugar levels near normal.

Hi 1019sanjiwani,

Your weight is ok for the weight but the blood sugar values are not ok.

SEXUAL DYSFUNCTION ====

For those who have desire for sex, life without it is like stone, wood, tree or vegetable. There can be several reasons for ED, but for a diabetic, diabetes will be or is the MOST important reason.

It is true that prolonged or high diabetes will cause sexual dysfunction. There is nothing strange in it. Diabetes weakens a person. A weak person cannot have sex. It is as simple as that. One can solve it only by at-least controlling blood sugar increase.

If you are not happy with your diabetes, treatment or progress, please try the Long Wheat Mash Diet Regimen which cured my diabetes. Now I am on normal diet & have no weakness. Details are at, above & below appropedia.org/Diabetes_mel...

TAKING MEDICINES ALONE WILL NOT BRING DOWN BLOOD SUGAR ALWAYS. THAT IS WHY PATIENTS ARE FORCED TO MOVE FROM EXERCISE TO DIET CONTROL TO LOW DOSE TABLETS TO HIGHER DOSE TABLETS TO INSULIN INJECTION AND COMBINATIONS OF THESE. YOU HAVE TO CHANGE YOUR FOOD HABITS & LIFE STYLE ALSO TEMPORARILY TILL CURE.

Please read MY REPLIES part 1, 2, 3 & 4 to question AT diabetesindia.healthunlocke...

Like a licensed driver helping a learner, I can guide you to cure Diabetes because I am experienced by curing my diabetes (Type-2) in 2009.

If you have still more doubts on DIABETES & ITS CURE, PLEASE COME BACK HERE.

Are you smoker? Burn some calories by fast walking. Do some meditation. Take more vegetables and some recommended fruits.

The readings are not very high. As the age advances the control also will become poor .

If you are looking for a better control since are a senior citizen you can start Insulin.

There are various kinds , you can consult a doctor and start 30/70 slow reacting one.

Also before changing over take a HB A1c, which will give a three months average reading which should be below 7 .
