HI Mr.George,

I did my Fasting & PPBS tests today and number reads as follows

Fasting :86

PPBS: 92

My HBA1C test is due on mar and shall publish the number later.

I have couple of questions for you.

1) I happened to travel few times over last 1 month and couldn't following Long wheat mash diet. Is skipping few days in a month, could cause any damage ?

2) I have been following Long wheat mash diet since 1st november 2013. My last few fasting , PPBS tests & last HBA1c (done on Dec 2013) reports were in normal range. Should I go for Oral glucode tolerant tests now or wait for some more time ?

Pls note, my intention is not to rush things and happy with long wheat mash diet.

PBS: 120

HBA1C: 7.6

  • Hi NoToDiabetes,

    I remember you mentioned in on of your posts that you were NOT on any type of medication. Please confirm this again that you were not on any medicine till date after you started eating LWMD.

    swamy.

  • HI Swamyonline,

    Yes. I'm NOT on any medication right from the time, I started taking long wheat. The only thing I'm following is Long wheat mash diet regime.

  • Glad to hear this :-)

  • Hi trying high carb and back to damaging Pancreas is not worth it. Yo may go for serum insulin Test. Else keep going the same way with regular test for BS levels and take caution for low BS.Just as you have done you enjoy time out for some time and test.Both levels below 100 is fine. Practise yoga or walking.

  • I agree. Diabetes is not "CURABLE" in the sense that one can go back to eating anything and everything that a non-diabetic person eats. At best, in my view, blood sugar levels can be brought down and kept down with proper dieting ie LCHF.

  • Hi Medfree,

    In my case, my relatively high FBS (110--140)has been happening even when I was not on LCHF diet.

  • In Long wheat 68% in vitamins and fiber and and balence carb. Even taking two times LWMR -70 grams with Milk or ur one day old Curd with Veg. side dishes i dont seem to add up or loose any thing. Instead all who take LWMR have so far given good result. Leave alone cure. Even sustaining these levels were to moon to us.Rather what is the side effect you expect. We Indians have been used to Rice or wheat or Quina with milk added Pepper ginger or Haldi. for decades In my opinion so long the BS and lipid profile dont go out of bounds its fine.

  • For those whom it suits they may go ahead. Pl see the blog of Raghavendra. The lines suiting our discussion i have reproduced.

    What these SCFA or BUTYRATE do in the body--(1) Decreases the glycemic response in diabetics. (2)--Increases insulin sensitivity thus reduces insulin resistance, (3) Increases initial phase of insulin secretion.. So LWMR with high fat will help reverse DM. by increasing sensitivity. Most of the DM patients have the resistance of cells to insulin. This stage is a definite benifit to us.

  • You can adopt the following course of action for controlling ur diabeties-

    A.Kindly understand that all of us are having the sugar in our body. The question is only that in our body it goes beyond the reasonable limits and that is why it starts giving problem. Further sugar levels going below the prescribed levels are equally not good. Therefore, cure is to keep it in within the reasonable limits. Once it has come within reasonable limits, our job is to keep and maintain it in within reasonable limits and that we can do without the help of medicines and by following the following course of action.

    B.Kindly understand that our Blood Sugar level deviates from the reasonable acceptable limits, as we have restricted ourselves to our house/office and going away from nature. It happens due to lack/shortage of Oxygen in our body. In summer season, we prefer to apply Airconditions/Desert Coolers and in Winter Season, we prefer to apply Electric heaters etc, instead of taking fresh air from the nature/wearing warm clothes. So the solution is to minimize the use of these products and have oxygen/fresh air from the natural resources.

    C. Kindly understand that we are having the habit of eating those fruits/vegetables & other items which suit to our taste and do not prefer to eat those items which are not according to our taste. Here the advice is to involve all permissible foods/vegetable/ dairy products & other eatables as part of our daily eating habits. Kindly understand that Diabeties interfers in our life, because of our focus on some specific eatables and ignorance towards the other valuble eatables required by our body. Here the cure is to have all permissible eatables are part of our daily routine. (Balance of Carbohydrates/vitamins/proteins & Minerals).

    D.Kindly further understand that in present days, we need to involve light Physical Exercise/Yoga and Meditation as an integral part of our daily routine. Further we need to avoid unnecessary mental stress.

    E.Further note that the digestion of food had of us is also equally important. Kindly eat less than what is desired by the stomach so that it can easily be digested. Have the food again after some time and allow it to digest properly.

    1. Get up early in the morning, before the sun rises and go on terrace and do the exercise of INHALE & EXHALE of oxygen, just for 20 minutes.

    2. Go for a normal work, morning and evening, 30 minutes, each time.

    3. Take a glass of hot water (As hot as tea), 15 minutes after Lunch & Dinner and it will wash out the sugar so created by the food so consumed.

    4. After 30 minutes of lunch, take a teaspoon of powder of Dry Awla (Goosberry) and Saunf (Aniseed) (both in equal quantity) with normal water. Both Awla/Amla and Aniseed are available either at the shops of dryfruits or where the spices are available.

    5. If you want to take Rice, as part of food, take it after taking out the water from Rice or preferably take Brown Rice.

    6. If you want to take Potato, as part of Vegetable, always take boiled potatos and take it in liquid form and not in dry form.

    7. Take Chapati, prepared of wheat combining of -Wheat Flour, Black Gram and Barley-All in equal quantities. Black Gram will support the function of heart and Barley will clean up and strength the kidney functions. (Reduce the ratio if the chapatti becomes hard to eat).

    8. Use of Refined Flour (Maida) should be restricted as far as possible, as it is highly contributory factor in increase of Diabeties. Therefore, the items made of Refined Flour such as normal bread, PAAO, Pizzabase, Samosa, Bhature etc should be avoided as far as possible. However, Brown Bread can be taken.

    9. Take Fruit and Vegetable Salad, as integral part of food, without pouring Salt and Chat Masala or any other spice on it, at the time of Lunch & Dinner.

    10. Take Sprouts and Milk Products as integral part of daily food. Milk Products includes Double Toned Milk-Low Fat Milk, Curd, Buttermilk and Paneer.

    11. Mix up 1/4th teaspoon of Haldi Powder (Turmeric powder) in winters and reduce it to one pinch in summer season (Yellow in color) with a glass of hot milk, without sugar and have it 30 minutes before going to bed. It will purify the blood in the body and also eliminates every type of pains and weaknesses in the body and further strength the body. It will also not allow any type of cancer in the body and also will not allow the stage of knee replacement even at any stage of ur life.

    12. Avoid taking vegetables like Pototaos, Sweet Potatos, Carrot etc. having the sweet contents and fruits like, sugarcane, Mango, oranges, Bannanna, grapes etc.

    13. You can have vegetables like Cauliflower, Cabbage, Methi (Fenugreek Leaves), Palak, Raddish, Lady Finger, Tinda, etc.

    14. You can have fruits like, Gowua, Apple, Pomigrantte, Watermelon, Pappaya etc.

    15. Take the leafts of Raddish and have it in raw form as part of salad.

    16. During Summer Season, always take Buttermilk-salted one, as part of food. It will improve digestive system and reduce the overburdening of Liver function.

    17. Avoid taking normal tea & Coffee. Always take Green Tea.

    18. Avoid taking Oily and more salty food. Reduce the consumption of oil, butter, Ghee and always consume easily digestable food.

    19. Take one Karela (Bitter Melon/Bitter Gourd/Bitter Squash) and four Tomatos, make a juice of them and have it twice a day.

    20. Always go for medical tests of brain, heart, liver, kidney and eyes, once in a year. For Blood Sugar, always go for HB1C and Sugar PP-every three months, in order to observe the developments. Also go for checking the numbness of the feet and take soft brush for cleaning the teeth.

    21. Always take the restricted food, as mentioned above, in reasonable quantity, at least once in a week, so that inner system of the body will remain conversant with the restricted items also.

    22. Change in life style and eating habbits is equally important to medicine. If we depend only on medicines and will not change our life style and eating habbits, then after sometime, medicine may stop working.

    23. Change in Life Style also includes taking Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner at fixed time, Getting up early in the morning, going to bed maximum by 10 PM at night, Have a sound sleep of at least 6-8 hours a day, do not go for sleep during the day time.

    24. For improving the strength in the body, Five Almonds and Five Wallnuts should be consumed. However, Cashewnuts and Raisin (Kismish) should be avoided. Further all Five types of MAGAJ are equally beneficial.(Available on the shops, where Dry Fruits are sold).

    25. For Sexual & Urinary disorders, soak one teaspoon of Methi Dana in one glass of normal water, for overnight. In the morning, take out Methi Dana and consume the water, empty stomach.

  • I do not understand why you will report your BS at monthly or bi-monthly intervals. I have been checking at least once daily and often 3 times during last 6 months so that I understand effect of each food that I take and also the activities like walking etc that I do. For me the readings fluctuate and it is really difficult to understand why it happens. In your case the readings are so.. obedient! They show rise or fall during a period steadily? Can any one on LWMD give daily/weekly values of BS. If I see that steady I shall believe they may not be my type of diabetic

  • HI,

    I don't want to be so obsessed with diabetic numbers. That's one reason, why I'm not checking daily. When I started with Long wheat diet, I thought of doing FBS & PPBS numbers, once in 15 days & HBA1C once in 3 months. However, owing to laziness & work schedule, Not doing FBS & PPBS every fortnight.

    But ever since, I started Long wheat mash diet & exercising, I have been feeling pretty healthy.

    Few of the benefits I got, other than controlling my Blood sugar

    - My bowel movements are regular now

    - I feel very healthy. Have fallen sick, only once in the last six months. That too a normal fever.

    - In the last six months, I donated blood once. They did a random sugar test before donation and the numbers were in non-diabetic range.

    - I'm climbing nine floors every day and it isn't as difficult as it used to be.

    Unlike other educated bloggers out here, I may not be able to comment on carbs, fat, what triggers sugar level to spike up and what not kind of thing...But one thing, I can vouch for is , at this moment, Long wheat mash diet appears to be working well for me.
