  • It is known as a silent killer.But if you really thinking to live a happy life you have to get control on your blood sugar.You can do that.At the age of 32 I was found having diabetes after the glucose tolerance test.The doctor advised me the diet,exercise and medicine.Also he has given me a piece of advise that if I follow what he said even after 60 I can manage with tablets.Other wise I have to go in for injection two times daily.I followed him since then.I am still on tablet only at the age of 69Yrs. I had bypass surgery for three blocks in 2005 October.My cholesterol before surgery was 163.So it was not the high cholesterol the reason for blocks.The doctor said in some person the vein gets shrinking due to diabetes,which creates block.But another doctors opinion is it is the free radicles released from the oxygen sticks with the LDL cholesterol helps to form the blocks.What ever it may be I am thankful to my first doctor and the surgeon who did the the bypass.I am healthy at 69 my FBS .90,PPBS.120,Cholesterol 135, HBA1c is 6.2. So if you will follow a good doctors advise strictly control your diet,do required exercise and do take the medicine as advised by the doctor and do the regular check up and do the follow up you can lead a normal healthy happy life.May God bless you to achieve that at the earliest.

  • Thank you sir for a valuable post, I have joined this group today only. I am 50 years old man, I have recently discovered that i am having my sugar level on higher side. I have checked my fasting sugar at home after 10 hours of my dinner, reading is 125, again checked it after 2 hours of lunch , it is 190. i have totally stopped sweets, chocolate( use to love eating chocs ). I was having kind of relaxed type of life. Now for last few days i decided and keeping atleast 40 minutes walk in evening. You think i should start taking medicines or by controlling my diet with less carbs and NO SUGAR, and keep walking or exercise daily will bring my sugar level to normal?

  • Dear,

    Surely you must do the dieting,medicine and exercise after consulting a diabetologist (or a good physician).Do not consider this as a disease if you can follow the three steps.Keep in mind that by controlling the sugar level you can lead a normal life.When you see the result of diet,medicine & exercise do not go over board continue it and enjoy it.You can eat your chocs not in large quantity but once in a while a small quantity.You will become used to it.Be happy.

    Wish you all the best.

  • Thank you dear...I will follow your advise.

  • Thank you.God bless you.

  • Did you try long wheat? It is very effective if you tolerate wheat.

  • Actually the post shows that you don't have diabetic, diabetic own you !!.. I was detected by 413 bs on August 19th of this year with weight of 96kg .. I have started with 3 times insulin and 2 time oral medication .. I was strict on healthy diet and 2 times workout a day.. With in one and half month doctor stopped all mediation and my sugar level is still controlled without medication.. Now am 71kg and my Fbs is 75 to 80 around.. I eat around 2900 cal and going to gym everyday for loosing 350 cal around.. So don't tell how to loose weight if you are a diabetic!!! Believe yourself !!!
