Diabetes is a metabolic disorder which is a result of the pancreatic gland in

our body either producing little or no insulin or the body has developed resistance to insulin. In both cases,the body cells do not receive the glucose needed for production of energy because insulin is essential for glucose to enter the cells. This results in the blood sugar levels to increase beyond acceptable levels,though your body cells are starved for glucose. This condition is very bad for our well being and over long term may result in severe complications.

Controlling blood sugar levels is a tough job but it is not impossible if you realize that everything is in your own hands. This is so,because though you may get good advise from doctors and dieticians,it is ultimately Y O U that will have to take all the necessary steps to successfully control diabetes. I am giving certain general suggestions based on my personal experience of twenty years as adiabetic, which you may consider and adopt based on your personal choice.

Diet plays a very important role in managing diabetes. You should reduce intake of foods that are rich in carbohydrates like sweets, rice,wheat,other grains ,potato,beet and other root vegetables rich in starch. You should eat more of vegetables,sprouts,greens and salads that give you lot of fiber,vitamins and minerals. Each meal you take should be smaller but you may have 5 or 6 meals instead 3 meals a day.

Exercise is very important to control diabetes. Daily brisk walking or jogging for at least 40 to 60 minutes is ideal. Such exercise will consume lots of energy and sugar levels come down accordingly.

Mental stress aggravates diabetes. Lead a stress free life by adopting relaxation techniques like music, meditation,yoga and breathing exercises.

Consult a diabetologist and get prescribed for medication if necessary and comply with the doctor's advise scrupulously.

Please remember that the most important person in managing your diabetes is Y O U.


Stress is one of the reason for High blood sugar. Your professional style sanctifying proper sleep and work load. You require proper mental rest and exercise. Money is for living. Do not live for money at the cost of your health & life.

If you are overweight then try low calorie-nutrient rich diet for atleast a month and see; It will result in significant weight reduction and might control your BS. I did this for 3 months and now I am off medication and my BS is completely normal.


Hello indiacratus,

I have not weighed recently. I might have gained 1-2 Kg weight; But I don't worry because my BS levels are normal. I have been checking BS every 15 days.

I need to take HbA1c test soon. That will really tell me how much BS control I have.

As per me "I have not actually reversed diabetes". I am just in control. I never agree to anyone saying reversing diabetes. Because diabetes is ir-reversible.!!
