Well, old timers here know about me and the diet that I follow and preach and that I do that without hurling insults at fellow bloggers here, despite being insulted uncountable times during my being active here. Those who don't know me, here's my little success story right from the day I was detected diabetic and into sixth year as DRUG FREE:
Now back to the topic. I love living by watching the meter and love corroborating what my reports tell me with the literature available on web regarding the diet that I follow and preach. Here's one little experiment:
Base Date: 9th October, 2016
Energy 89 - 178 for 200ml
(ie one bottle/can)
Carbs 13g - 26g for 200ml
Added sugar 8g - 16g for 200ml
Fat 3.1g - 6.2g for 200ml
Full day just one tea with sugar at noon as was out and was having headache. Since few days, mild headache had been plaguing and though I did go to sleep at 9:30 pm y'day I woke up suddenly at 12:20 am for no reason. Dinner itself was loads of chicken+ veg preparation ordered from outside and 2 bottles (400ml) of Amul Kool. Never took any readings
With sleep gone, did following experiment:
Took reading -- 77 by meter headahce persisting
200 ml Amul Kool
1 hr after Amul kool - 119 mild headache persisting
Again took another Amul Kool
1 hr after second one (2 hrs after first) -- 129 headache gone
Took another Amul Kool
Went to sleep at ~4 am as was feeling sleepy again with headache all gone.
Woke up at 11:30 am
Reading : 95
So, 600 ml Amul kool with 26X3 = 78G carbs out of which 48g was sugar and 77 as starting reading before the experiment, woke up with 95 on meter.
Total kcal from Amul Kool : 890
If computed for full day 1000 ml Amul Kool in a day and wake up number 95, despite 80 grams added sugar.
Am I cured ? Should I start claiming that my diet CURED my Diabetes? Asking this, as I have found many HERE claim that Diabetes can be CURED. As it is, for sixth year running, I haven't tasted any diabetic drug or for that matter any drug for anything like diabetes, hypertension or LIPIDS, desipite eating loads of fats which include 3 eggs a day, 30ml VCO, 100 grams nuts, cheese, butter, curd etc
PS: I love discussing based on what I Do and back it up with numbers rather than do copy paste from Google Search. Why? Because there's no better teacher than EXPERIENCE. No point in wasting Health Unlocked resources (bandwidth, storage, CPU/RAM resources) by doing a copy paste of full article from Google Search. Everyone can search on Google and find that info in any case
My meter normally reads higher than lab.
