If you are feeling weak you might like to discuss your meds with your doctor. If your carbohydrate intake has fallen from what you usually eat, then taking the same amount of meds can make your blood sugar fall below optimum. Diet doc advises here:

Your total calorie intake could be low.

50-60 gms carb intake with two chapatis in a day is rather impossible.

Try LWMDR; one can do away with carb counting. Moreover one need not starve. There are numerous options!

Thanks mr.george,

Initially when i joined forum i tried LWMDR for more than 6 months but my pp was always 180+. monitoring daily BF has shown improvement , and HbA1c after 3 months 5.9 and 6.6 after another 3 months i didn't go for HbA1c test before starting LWMDR. Meanwhile i learnt through forum that crbs are main cause of DM2 the intake of carb be kept under 100gm per day which was not possible under LWMDR diet twice in a day with normal food in lunch thus my consumption of carb was more than 100gms per day .

I started counting carb and kept it under 300kcal of my energy need . which has shown normal levels of BS.

Total cholesterol seems high. Maintain less than 200.Further HDL 7 LDL values are not there. Total Cho:HDL ratio is also important.

Results look good. Very good carb level too.

What is your current weight?

As for weakness it seems that your protein intake is too low. This means that if you do not eat enough calories from healthy fat, your muscle will be broken to produce glucose (Gluconeogenesis).

Gluconeogenesis (GNG) is a metabolic pathway that results in the generation of glucose from certain *non-carbohydrate* carbon substrates - basically muscle.

You probably need to increase your protein intake. Eggs are really good as it is complete protein. If you can another egg to your morning omlett and add two boiled eggs for dinner or lunch, it will certainly make a difference.

You may also consider adding some healthy fat which is the most affordable to you: coconut oil, olive oil or even butter.

You may consider adding some energizing supplement from an ayurvedic expert (supplements should not increase your carb intake.

Do you use any traditional glocose regulators (e.g. Tusli tea, ashwaganda, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, garlic and the like)?

Thanks. A sedentary person with a weight of about 75 kg needs 50-70 gr of real protein. This doesn't mean 70 gr of eggs/meat/chicken rather because raw ingredients contain water, fat, fiber, etc. So in order to get 50 gr of protein one needs to eat roughly 4 x 50 = 250 gr of eggs (5 eggs/day), or a combination ofother protein sources.

Eggs are really one of the best proteins. Egg becomes a complete chick so it has in it all the protein needed to build all sorts of tissue.

I personally have a special omellett with spinach/chard and eggs, with garlic and cayenne pepper, and I occasionally add brocolli (50 gr) and half a tomato (50 gr). It taste great and never rises blood sugars., according to my experience:).

Thanks iminig,Is it good to go for protein supplement ? If yes ,form i.e. powder or tablet ,which one and supplier .

As per my information for 300kcal maximum protein need is 43gms,(1gm=7kcal) is it correct ?

1 gr protein = 4 kcal

Asfor myselfi prefer to eat whole foods because they come packed with muchmore than just protein i.e. vitamins, minerals and other micronutrients.

You can find a list of 40 foods high in proteins. It is better to avoid soy based protein because they decrease testosterone.

It were me, i would choose the proteins that are affordable because they are quite similar. I find eggs as a good alternative but this varies by country.

As for supplements, i would go for whey protein or hampseed protein. I have heard good things about hempseeds, but again the economical aspect is an important criteria, especially that diabetic have suchhigh costs already.

Regarding Cholesterol, i alsoprefer to use whole foods that reduces LDL choleterol naturally and increases HDL naturally.

Foods that reduces LDL:

Choose foods low in carbs.

webmd.com/cholesterol-manag...

Examples of foods:

- Walnuts, almonds and other nuts

- Olive oil

- Avocado

- Cacao (i prefer it to dark chcolate which contains sugar. You can use stevia to make it sweet)

- Faty fish: salmon, sardines, tuna, trout, etc.

- Whey protein

- Spinach

- Garlic

- Beans and lentils

- Green tea

- Eggplant and okra

Pick and choose according to availability and budget.
