Hi I am Rajanviji
20 years diabetic and recently found out 4 blocks in all my 3 major arteries . 70:80:90. Etc percentage . They have given me stent option and surgery option. After that they have introduced 4 th drug Empagliflozin 10 mg . Which is working very well . Already on 2000 metformin, 320 glickazide and 100 mg sitagliplin . 5 th drug gas 25 my as maintenance dose , which I said to the nurse no need to increase if my kidney function test is ok on 25/07 which is one month after taking the drug.
If they want to increase they have to cut on some other drug or I will experience hypo.
Moral of the story is this:
After joining the forum I pick and choose what I needed and applied to my condition.
- Low Carb. Accept 100 percent and also if I take quantity is very much reduced.
- don't eat after 7.30 pm latest and if you are hungry say before going to bed have a whole meal toast with tea or coffee .
- Banana is very bad , there fore eat 1/2 and avoid any kinds of fruits after 6 pm
- for my condition high fat diet not acceptable
- if you are eating rice only 1 and 1/2 handful of rice with vegetable curries. If it is evening meal 1 hand ful.
- day time 1/2 of any 2 fruits . Banana and apple OR Apple and pears.
- day time before lunch time meal eat salads.
-drink water 1/2 glass before every meal.
- drink 2 glasses of water on empty stomach every morning. Which helps you to have motion as well.
- evenings say 5 o clock 2 digestive biscuits with tea. I know that biscuit is full of sugar I can't help it.
- morning always porridge with seeds.
I manage the diabetic nurse , and not listen to all what she says. ALso learnt from your forum and reading and Internet.
That's why I was quiet for a while and decided to participate and share my info.
I like few people in the forum who writes to the point and informative . I will mention their names next time.
Any thing you share should be evidenced base will be helpful.
Personal or written - such as research papers.
By the way I am 60 years old
Some times I munch 1 inch of cinnamon stick
Finally forgot to mention at least 4 days in a week I walk for 50 minutes - slow walk to sweat
That's all for the time neing
