I was diagnosed on June 2015 at age 36. I was losing weight, had blurry vision( I thought due to excessive computer usage), polyuria, polyphagia. Still, I could not believe I had diabetes, because I wokred out everyday and did not gorge on starch. But, I lost about 10 kg in under a month and decided to test. My fasting b.g was 369 mg/dl and postprandial 514. I couldǹt believe the numbers and retested in another lab. It was true. I had diabetes. One thing I doǹt understand anyway is why I was losing weight so fast when my urine acetone test came in negative.
I undertook Siddha medication for diabetes, from Swami Gorakhnath in Paravur. Was having herbal medicine thrice a day. Also exercised twice a day. Food was strictly vegetarian,prioritizing certain vegetables. Fasting b.g came down to 100 in one month. I continued the medication for a few more months. Now, in June 2016, its been three months I had any medicine. I have a normal diet and my blood glucose is just fine. The fasting levels are in the 90s consistently. All the symptoms have disappeared. I believe type 2 diabetes can be brought into remission with prompt and aggressive therapy.
