Sir, I personally don't see any challenge. You can get trained by any yoga teacher for few days and then do it. My father also learnt pranayam now at age 64 and he is doing very well. He was not doing any exercise at all - not even simple 20-30 min walk.
I already have been helping a lot of friends and relatives as well have taken 2 sessions in the company where I work to educate people. Doing anything beyond that needs certain qualifications in medical or nutrition field that I don't have. Happy to help in forums like these which are about sharing experience.
Yoga and Pranayam would bring harmonal balance. I am not the right person to talk around insulin generation and triggers leading to it and if one is impacted by less generation or over generation of insulin. I read a lot and then already starting to forget now. Whatever is the case, if pancreas is impacted in functionality over or under, you would want to help it anyway.
I follow doctor - Michaal Greger - nutritionfacts.org - which in my personal opinion is the best person to follow and would provide most of the information around research articles. Other doctors that I listen to - Neil Bernard, John Bergman, Dr Hegde. I have seen few other references - AMA, ADA etc. I usually have never gone there and seen what they prescribe. I usually see criticism about their prescriptions though so decided not to waste time.
I have stopped going into science much now. Keeping mind occupied with Diabetes all the time can potentially impact you subconscious level - just my feeling based upon how I feel our brain plays games with us :).
This is what I learnt i.e. from the mistakes I was making and stopped thinking about diabetes on daily basis
- stress would kill
- exercise is a must
- vegetables, fruits, cold pressed oils, nuts, seeds and most of things found in nature are my main food
- eat food 2-3 times in 24 hours limited to 9 hour window.
Note - I never went around following LCHF, Ketogenic diet etc. I don't know much about them. But eating within 8-9 hours also known as intermittent fasting is something that appealed to me as Jains follow similar model and also Ayurveda talks about eating limited times a day. Jindal nature cure gives patients food only twice a day. In yoggram Haridwar, food is given thrice a day.
- avoiding processed, outside food , stopping alcohal and non-veg would make a difference (from my reading and general observation).
- with above taken care off, once in a while deviation ( in my case - office parties ) can be managed without much issues.
