I have been managing blood sugar after joining this forun with a combination of diet and medicine. After various experiments I have come to conclude that low carb diet with reduced medicine (1/2 tab glynase mf after bfast and dinner) gives me the best result and controls blood sugar within normal levels. Last hba1c being 4.9. But going beyond and trying wiithout medicine is not working out effectively. My medicine has a switch on, switch off effect on blood sugar levels and find it comfortable to carry on with this reduced qty of medicine. I am in the same league as Medfree as far as walking is concerned. A gratifying result of a recent eye examinaion is that13 years of D has not yet made any adverse impact. This post is just to share my experience.
