Hi Everyone, first of all I want to
Thank you all for your knowledge sharing with me and others. In December 2015 i was diagnosed with Hba1c 6.8, c- peptide 5.2(range 0.7 to 3.5) as a diabetic at the age of 27, panicked n very confused started searching on internet for cure. instead i was reading more about dangerous complications, early death, etc etc. that increased my anxity instead.
Then came to this forum.. n started reading more n more of the posts and comments. i got dr. Bernsteins "diabetes solution" n Jenny Ruhl's "blood suger 101" started to learn a lot about LCHF, ketogenic diet, n all. it all made sense. And lchf is very easy to follow.Thanks to Mr anup he is one of the very helpful and knowledgeable people on this forum. He had very strong n sensible points in every debate.
then i came across Mr. shooter George's LWMDR and his fantastic long term experimental journey to cure/manage diabetes . All these and other people on this forum are doing great work of helping ignorant people like me. Thanks to mr. Shooter George for this healthy n testy long wheat mash recepie that gave me hope of cure. I am from south Maharashtra, so long wheat is easily available here at my village. at rs. 50 per kg. and we always use it for making sweet kheer(kanji) with broken long wheat , jaggary n salt for festivals n even in weddings. Now a days it is not cultivated much coz of less raining but its still easily available.
After my official diagnosis of diabetes i never consumed any form of sweet, fruits, bakery or packaged food. n started checking on my dads gluco metre. Readings were
fasting 88- 105
PP 108 - 148
So too much blood hikes were not a problem initially. So i decided to follow LWMDR exactly as guided by Mr. Shooter George. No sweets, fruits. Long wheat (same as my weight 68 gram) cooked in pressure cooker then little grinding in mixer, then cooked in 1 tbs ghee with low carb vegetables n spices( termeric, garlic, chilli powder,cumin, hing,salt,black sesame seeds etc). and side dish was always coconut chutney, peanut chutny, flax seed powder and moringa(drumstick) leaves spicy powder. This LWMDR dish consumed for breakfast n dinner.
For lunch i chose very low carb meal plan - very low carb mix veg preparation with cheese or/ chicken with very thick strained curd (Buffalo) or/ egg bhurji made in VCO with cheese.
for snacks 5 almonds 5 walnuts.
n hot coconut milk with cocoa n coffee.
I guess i was consuming 100 to 120 gram carbs daily n lot of healthy fats adequate amount of proteins. after this regime
fasting 84- 98, and breakfast, n lunch numbers never exceeded 105. only after dinner number always shooted to 150. Chronic back pain n constipation was cured. Sleep quality improved n depression gone.
Now after 2 n half months strictly following this diet.
my lab test came with Hba1c 4.7 and fasting suger 63.
I thought results were false as it were tested in hospital lab, so to test Hba1c accuracy next day i went to NABL accredited lab n did full blood work.
All results lipid, thyroid, kidney, liver function, hemoglobin etc were normal. And Hba1c = 4.6 fasting= 73 n pp= 99. Took results to doctor. Now he says was never diabetic or misdiagnosed. what do you people think, was i never diabetic or am i cured??? Coz depending on my three months glucometre testing I estimated my Hba1c to be 5.8. Then How did i get such low Hba1c 4.6 even though i was consuming 100-120 gram carbs every day???????
