High Fasting Sugar Level

Hi Friends

First of all thanks to all members for valuable suggestions for controlling Diabetes.

I have switched to LCHF diet 3 months back and my HBA1c improved from 8.4 to 6.8 levels and my weight also reduced from 83 to 79 kg.

My PP levels are coming in range of 100 to 130 even random levels are 90 to 120 but my fasting levels are generally high in range of 130 to 160.

I am taking Diamicron Xr max one tablet in morning and Metfort 500 and Onglayaza 5mg in night .

Pl suggest so that I can control my fasting levels also.

  • What exactly are you eating throughout the day?

  • Morning : Tea and 5-6 almonds after 1 hour big bowl of lentil or salad along with medicine.

    Around 11: I take Green tea and some 25-30 gms peanut.

    lunch: Watermelon, cucumber and papaya big bowl.

    evening : tea and some peanuts or roasted Bengal gram.

    Late evening: Some times Paneer/chicken Tikka/Chicken seekh ( 2-3 times a week along with 2 alcoholic drinks of 50 ml each no beer )

    Dinner: Again big katori of subzi or dal ( try to avoid potatoes) along with medicine.

  • Everything looks good except alcohol IMHO.

    Potato, beets, sweet potato should be NEVER.

    Peas, Rajma, Carrot, Tomato etc should be limited.

    Grains like wheat, rice, maize,corn and its products should be strictly controlled.

    Why not try and get off the drinks for a week and see how FBS turns out.

  • Thax a lot for the suggestion I will give it a try.

  • Drugs are always missing in such a food plate. Perhaps they should add MF, STATINS and baby Aspirin also for such a recommendation of High Carb stuff to diabetics.

  • HI Dear- U may adopt the following course of action for controlling the 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 Air-conditioners/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.

    F.Kindly understand that Diabeties cannot be controlled merely by taking medicines as it is disorder of our eating habits and that of daily routine-the way of living. If we depend only on medicine then after sometime, the medicines may stop working and supporting our body.

    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, Brinjal etc.

    14. You can have fruits like, Gowua, Apple, Pomigrantte, Watermelon(with black pepper and sendha salt), 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.

    26. For clearing the blockages of nerves in the entire body, take 20 gms of Garlic, cut it into smaller pieces. Boil the garlic in one glass of hot milk with one glass of water. Boil it till the point it remains only one glass of milk. Strain it and have such milk in the morning, empty stomach. Kindly remember that u should not consume anything (not even water) for next one hour. This will also clear the blockage of nerves and will also remove every type of pain in the body, caused due to blockage or other deficiency in nerves of the body.

  • It is long documentary but old as 10 years back science. Please note if you not controlling curb intake you c' not control diabetic.Remember 90% of type 2 diabetic are over weight & And initially they consumed extra carb on daily intake food. And loaded with extra loaded of insulin. Remember normal in our blood has approximately 5-7 gm of sugar exactly 1 tsf of sugar but our lack of dietary knowledge we consuming lots of carb. Therefore you must reduce as you can carb.

  • Hi Ashok-we should not go into the controversy of examining that whether it is 10 years old or even more than that-old science. Our aim is to improve our lifestyle & control Diabeties. Further almost every eatble is having the carb content-however may be more or less. Now the question is that whether we wish to control/restrict our diet and then control our diabeties or we wish to control the diabeties by having almost every eatable. If yes then that is the path to be followed otherwise keep on restricting urself and keep on taking the medicines.-bye

  • Doctors are more interested is selling drugs (for commissions and gifts from pharma industy) rather than improve conditions of diabetics. This is why they disregard LCHF diet vehemently. During early days here on this forum, our suggestions were called "Speculative Blogging" by few those who hated LCHF here. Now that the number of diabetics here have increased to 160, those voices have been muted down, though we do see some off hand remarks against FAT even now, from the likes of indiacratus and rnpath.

    Here's the post here "Speculative" term was used (user anup used to be here then till his account got blocked):

  • Yes we knew your fight & struggle since long with no self interest. Really I salute you.

    Thanks

  • hello sharmaji, I am also seeing the same issue. My FBS is pretty high around the same range as yours. What time do you have your dinner and what time do you sleep ? I have dinner around 8:00pm but sleep at 10:30pm or so. If you drink some buttermilk or eat some peanuts at bed time, it seems to reduce the FBS. Try it and let us know how it works for you. This information about night snack was obtained from internet. I am also trying this.

    Thanks.
