I have known my father to have diabetes, because, when I was young, going to school, i used to see him on a daily basis, testing his urine in a test tube over spirit burner. and then add some drops through dropper, and the color of the urine would change to green/red/or blue/yellow. As children, we were amazed at this change of color and experiment, and would peek through the door throughout the whole progress.
He would take karela juice with curd every day in the morning and chappati for dinner.. No tablets, I thinks.
Later on, as years went by, it was all stopped. He lived a full life till 81 years,(that was 22 years back,) never sick for a day, travelled extensively between Chennai and Trivandrum, and ate all what he can, ate sweets, and rice and I think he was cured of diabetes, but no one in the family know how. I was diagnosed with diabetes long after he was gone. It is still a mystery. I am the only one in the family of five with this disease.
Any one, any guesses,??????? I could have asked my mother, but she too passed away immediately before his death, and I think mainly her loss hastened his end.
