Got diagnosed for diabetes just a month back. Did random check in a glucometer and got >200 mg/dl. Did fasting and PP at a lab and got 152/252 as fasting /PP. Currently taking metformin 500xl twice a day. Under control. Age 49. Lean. Fatty liver present. Vegetarian -south Indian. Been walking 6-8km a day for the last 8 months. After diagnosis started medication plus a lot of home remedies. I take a concoction of Karela + Amla fresh juice in the morning with aloe vera juice added. Also a piece of ginger added. Then go for the walk. Later at 9am have a mix of jamun+elephant apple powder. Also forgot to mention that I have some methi seeds soaked over night 1st thing in the morning. Switched to lower carb diet but not high fat sit. Lost around 4-5 kgs in 2 weeks. Readings under good control. Fasting around 85-95 and PP around 120-130. Sometimes before a meal reading is as low as 70-80. Also take liv52 and vit E 400 bid for fatty liver.
I find this community very useful. I work for pharmaceutical company for the last 28! Years and have a good understanding of diabetes. Have a family history of diabetes.
Just thought I would like to introduce myself.
