@zaheerbasha4, LW gives only long term result and ultimately cure. If you are looking for a quick response, best choice is injection.

@Champak045....I am from sangli,where long wheat or Khapli gevu is produced in large quantity. I have used it from childhood...it tastes better than other wheat.It is quite cheap also at sangli..Now I am settled at Mumbai.For diabetes, after watching some threads here, I used it for almost a year,in many forms like chapatis,broken wheat Dalia,or kheer...My observation is that it has little more fibres compared to other types of wheat,but carbohydrates content don't differ.. A wheat is a wheat is a wheat...!.. due to more fibres,sugars spikes are slower,but no other difference... observations by others could be different,for diabetic,it is No different than other wheat....,

I was responding to his words "Better try! No harm".

From 2009 till date I am on normal diet with rice sugar as well as fruits! That is the difference eating LW makes!!

That is fantastic! I have been on LW meal twice a day with vegetables and protein and controlling simple carbs for about 3 weeks now and already see a good reduction in my readings! Even my fasting sugar is getting better which i had never hoped for. They have been consistently going down. (Exception - they do go up every time i indulge and eat larger portions of simple carbs/fried food specially at a restaurant ..) .. control control control :) Getting better but do give in once in a while - i'm in it for the journey ..

What ticked me off was when the doctor wanted to prescribe new medicines (Xigduo, Trulicity) which have documented major side effects and advised to put me on insulin injections if the aic was not reducing in 3 months (current aic 8) . This is a one way road (trying to control with medicines alone).. I hope to see a reduction in A1c in 3 months!

p.s. i love the nutty taste of Long Wheat (i buy Emmer Wheat )

@Tzaneen123, HbA1c jumps with sweet intake, as in the case of temperature reading in a clinical thermometer, which does not fall along with the fall of temperature. HbA1c takes 3 months from the date of taking sweet/fruit and not from the date of previous test, to fall.
