  • Dear Mr.Nizamani

    your mother was sometime back Diabetic and recently after stopping medication for a week she mainatians normal level is your query.Possibilities are she didnot have good diet she consumes bitter gourd or the test was erroneous. Once you had a near normal reading after doing the test inspite of no medication it should have been your concern to redo the test in some other lab or with a different glucometer as the test or readings could be erroneous.Diabetes should not be taken as a self healing disease.The fasting and post prandial tests should be done atleast ince in three days with medication and with no medication daily . The way with which you have been doing tests months after is sheer negligence.

  • ONCE A DIABETIC ALWAYS A DIABETIC. THE QUESTION IS WHAT THE PERSON DOES TO KEEP THE BLOOD SUGARS UNDER CONTROL ie.Take in less sugar by controlling intake or even as drastic as baritric surgary ( stomach staple surgary) and, or burnig off the calories by excersing, using meds such as glucophage that help your muscles to burn sugars..

  • hello arun,

    all the items you suggested are definitely good to controll suger. you have stated that these are not to be taken as medicine. How do you suggest ?

    I am 67 now; had diabetes in the age of 60. i am using some of these items and a few other directly in curry anf dall fry. never checked suger lavel.I am an extravegant chilly consumer.have vigourous exercise regularly. I am honestly better as far as the health is concerned then when i was 60 and diabetes was not aignosied. my eye sight is improved. only the skin at some places on face tell my age approximately. for which i have terminated the use of soaps and now using babachi/nagarmotha/ jatamansi , and a few other harbs for bath. i hope to get rid of few wrinkles i have.I shall be grate ful for any suggession to remove the wrinkles.

  • your querry is to be answered by an authorised diabetologist only.You can not get guidance from this forum.Generally the experience of forum members will be useful and not their suggestions. Better reach out to an authorised hospital in your neibhourhood.

  • The only one i can concur with is the individual who advised you/your mother to get Haemoglobin A1c tests on a regular basis.ONCE PER MONTH TO AT LEAST ONCE EVERY 3 MONTHS, The test reflects how well the blood sugars are staying in/under control.over the long term. For non diabetics (normal people it is 6 or less). the diabetic who can keep it at 7 or 6 is doing great in keeping blood sugar under good control and as near to normal. as possible.and there fore the least amount of damage to their body from diabetes.

  • Hi Changaz,

    Please give the patient's FBS, 2-Hr-PPBS & HbA1c results. Tell when was her diabetes noticed. Also tell age, height, weight, medicines & dosages, details of food/drink intake like what, when & how much from one morning to next morning; that only will give a picture for us to give some specific advice.

    Please click the links below one by one & read carefully. We will discuss after that.

  • Yes it could be done with Low carbohydrate diets. It all depends on what you eat. What you eat will give you your Sugar levels.

  • Diabetes mellitus type 2 can be controlled by diabetic diet and exercise during initial stages.

    Fasting blood sugar level should be less than 100 mg/dL and post-prandial blood sugar level should be less than 140 mg/dL.

    Diabetes is diagnosed with the following blood tests:--

    * Fasting blood glucose level -- diabetes is diagnosed if it is higher than 126 mg/dL two times

    * Random (nonfasting) blood glucose level -- you may have diabetes if it is higher than 200 mg/dL, and you have symptoms such as increased thirst,urination, and fatigue (this must be confirmed with a fasting test)

    * Oral glucose tolerance test -- diabetes is diagnosed if the glucose level is higher than 200 mg/dL after 2 hours.

    Hemoglobin A1c test

    Normal: Less than 5.7%

    Pre-diabetes: Between 5.7% and 6.4%

    Diabetes: 6.5% or higher

    Your mom has a risk factor for type 2 diabetes.

  • 119 is too high for fasting blood glucose. 90 is optimal. Keep her 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...

    Encourage her to eat low GI carbs. Follow this link glycemicindex.com/

    Make up the balance of her 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, avocado, butter, ghee, duck fat, goose fat, and lard.

  • It is suggested to have HB1ac Test for your mother. If the result is 7 or less than 7, than there should not be worry. As this test is indicating sugar level of average 4 months. take equal qty. of Haldi Powder (Dry) and Amla Powder , mix it and give one spoon each in morning and in evening , preferably before meals. Regular walking of 20 minutes after meal will be more beneficial.

    Sugar test at the interval of every two months is suggested for six months after that once in six months.

  • Your mother's Fasting Blood Sugar value of 119 is not normal. FBS is normal when it is less than 100 after taking a supper on previous night having 300 grams or more of cooked rice or equivalent wheat or other starchy dish and taking no medicines for the previous three-four days. This is my thumb rule, not any authentic guideline like that of ADA etc. I studied diabetes if fairly good detail to cure (not control) my diabetes. Controlling blood sugar is only a child's play.
