Reduce carb intake. No biscuits and rice at all. Restrict chapati to 1at a time. Search on this forum for LCHF diet. Go through posts of user atma and ninjarao. Atma has reduced his drugs. Ninjarao is latest example who has reversed his diabetes very quickly.

Your LDL and TG are bit high. TG will fall when you reduce carbs.

Even 8km walk can not assure D control for that carb quantity :)

Kindly reduce your carbs intake. By the grace of God you will reduce your medicine intake also.

First start doing what has been suggested it will definitely bring down your BS levels. If you are on for diabetic drugs for last 6-7 years then you are diabetic at least for that period. It is not related to menopause. For your height 57kg is not to be given any attention.

Now she is 44 and is taking drugs for diabetes for last 6-7 years. So diabetes is there at least since her age was 37. So her diabetes is not related to that. And if she is going through menopause then let her clarify about that. Why should we assume that. I know that hormonal disturbance in that period can cause IR. But we don't know if it is there in her case.

Estrogen therapy has more side effects than benefits.

When she is already saying that she is thin then why do you suggest her to reduce weight. Your suggestion for weight reduction is like mathematics. 2+3=5. Human body do not respond theoretically.

Yes after certain limit when plateau is hit in any parameter body rejects to budge. (BS, weight, cholesterol etc.) And who is already 57kg to achieve 50kg starvation is the only answer. This is like saying, whatever BS reading I achieve by following certain diet someone else must achieve same results with the same diet.

i dont want to loose weight anyfurther .i am now ok ,onl;y thing is to do to just control my BS anyhow.I have to do it.but as my job is all time sitting on computers ,do u think it effects my bs .although i am very active at home in the morning well as in night

Daily activities have limited impact on BS after a certain limit. Without controlling diet one can not achieve good BS nos. So first thing you should do is what you have been suggested. " LCHF diet".

my periods are regular till date. but yes just before one week of my periods i feel bad .weekness ,constipation,not well sleep at night etc etc.

There could be possibility of hormonal changes. But as your diabetes is much older so it is not your current status is cause for elevated BS levels. So priority must be for BS control.

Well nothing much to add but if you seriously don't want to take meds then many here with diabetic able to achieve near normal readings i was at your stage with almost same readings almost a months back now without meds today fasting was 94 and pp was 110 just on diet control cutting down carbs is the easiest way to get back to normal readings with minimum meds even shedding all meds altogether but as been told you need to monitor your BS levels very stringently keep a track of what you eating and genetics do play a role so might be being thin also u not able to achieve a good readings so i will also suggest cut down roti / rice / cereals /potato limit tomato other then that eat sabzi without roti / rice and add egg to diet if u take non veg then its even easier for you to be on LCHF diet if not then also vegetarian diet add ghee / cheese / VCO to your sabzi / khadi add channa daal all this are in limit less spike your BS so twist and turn your diet accordingly always follow the Glucose Meter reading from now on it is your best friend for knowing which food to take and avoid since now your readings are high just follow this diet for a month then only you able to see the results ! .

Hi Guchchu, Try this spelling Gu66u for your name Ha Ha. Please stop all wheat in your diet as it contains Glycerol an alcohol compound Glycerol which attaches to Fat for storage and so Blood Vessel Lining. Target to maintain your weight wihin 1 BMI (Body Mass Index) calculated at Height in inches X 1 KG weight that is 63 inch KG.

Your body requires roughly 2000 cals for its daily acts viz. breath, digest, heartbeats and all. This means your exercise is lower - check Wikipedia for cals used/exercise and make a regimen. Count your cal intake per meal/day at Carbs & Proteins = 4 cal/gm, fats = 9 cgm & alcohol/ 11 cgm. If necessary also cut diet but be careful of not loosing wt further.

i have been able to come out of my diabetic med to a great extend in the last few days and i am a diabetic for almost 20 yrs . Had to settle for insulin after having gone to a diabetic center for a thorough check up. My sugar level was dropping drastically at night to touch 50 when ever i took insulin, thats when i read from one of the readers here to follow LCHF diet

I never knew anything like this before. May be i had to go through all this in my life and then settle on a veg diet with eggs..a few days back i tried all this as an experiment and am adv everyone to at least try before you reject this concept and if one can accept you are on the road to full recovery and living a life without any medicines whatsoever

Now my fasting is around 110 with metformin .Today am trying to manage same thing with only metformin

Last night i didn't take any medicine since sugar level was 110 . Today pp shows 132. i am surprised by all this reading.Earlier fasting used to be around 150 to 190 some time and pp was 250 to 300.Sometime it crossed this also since iam fond of sweets. After following this LCHF diet also i took icecream and was scared to test since i expected my reading to touch atleast 250 but infact it was only 127!

i can adv those reading this to have a testing machine at home and monitor your sugar level and decide what is good for your body. select veg you like best and control carbo. Even after taking ice cream it has not altered my sugar level Iam not advising anyone to take ice cream . just gave my experience !

personally my aim is to come out of medicines completely one day. Iam sure you too will
