  • Dear Kartik,if you are a confirmed type 1 diabetic then apart from insulin there is no alternative therapy,you can continue your job provided your blood sugars are under control

  • Type 1 diabetics have to be on insulin.You can live long and healthy life being type 1.Search on net you will find lot many type 1 living happily.Buy Dr Richard Bernstein's "Diabetes solution" book.He has type 1 Diabetes for last 70 years.He is now 82.

  • by leaving the job you will become non diabetic?

    Read more on the deficiency and change your life style.

    nothing is permanent even your stress. overnight you can't become type 1 diabetic. only detected now.

    Carbohydrate reduction and consulting a good doctor will solve your problem

  • I think dlife.in will be able to help you, no harm in checking it out. Whatever you do, with such high Hba1c you need help, donot delay! All the best.

  • You need to cut down on carbs and replace with good fat. That will bring down the insulin dose and also the wild swings in blood sugar reading. The more the dose of insulin to cover high carbs, higher the episodes of wild swings -- unless one is prepared to live with high blood sugar readings.

    Sugar in urine, eye problems aren't good to get.

    Ayurveda can never be a license for high carbs low fat diet.

  • thanks a lot everyone my bs levels has been gradually improving..from day to day..
