Arranged in ascending values of Carb and last 3 are obviously not low carb.
I have been for last 10 days taking 80 gms of Samba Wheat Rava (per day) in the forn kichidi/uppuma with onion, tomato and cauliflower. Lunch and dinner. Breeakfast 2 eggs or salads mostly cucumber, snacking peanuts, orange.
My bs level without medicine has come under control through out the day and only fbs not under control. I am resorting to 500mg Metformin and fasting bs is coming down gradually.
Earlier I used to juggle with a combination of glynase mf and diet with constant fear of low levels of bs. (Though this gave good control).
I can now say with confidence that I have arrived at a fair solution for my problem which wad dogging me for more than 13 years. I have been experimenting with frequent testing at home glucometer to arrive at this conclusion. I would like to gradually discontinue metformin after a month and see the result.
One redeeming factor of my D management is, one way or the other there was always control.
