Diabetes India

Who measures diabetic ranges?

We all are aware that a person with FBS between 70 & 110 is non-diabetic; between 110 & 140 pre-diabetic and above 140 is diabetic. However, who determined these ranges? I strongly doubt these ranges are provide good business for the doctors, pharmaceutical companies and pharmacies. Moreover, if a person is diagnosed as diabetic and undergoing treatment, then why he is not becoming non-diabetic, even after having medicines for a year or so?

Doctors argue that diabetes cannot be cured, but it can only be controlled. But a diagnosed person , who is undergoing treatment, gradually becoming more prone to diseases, less immunity, increase in diabetes treatment dosages, including introduction of insulin. Doctors are not at all questioned. In addition, this is the reason why insurance companies are not covering ophthalmology related problems, particularly will crop-up with diabetic patients.

WHO indicates the desirable blood sugar levels which are followed more or less everywhere.Please go through STANDARDS OF CARE

AND CLINICAL PRACTICE GUIDELINES for diabetes issued by them.They are targets that may be achieved to avoid long term complications.These guidelines are no doubt based on the experiences of researchers and diabetes care professionals over a long period.It is up to us to follow them or otherwise.The doctors whom we consult are bound by the guidelines issued by Indian Medical Association,which are naturally based on WHO guidelines.We are free to follow our own standards and line of treatment.A qualified doctor in Kerala treats diabetics with laddoos and a fellow blogger on this site is reporting excellent results with bhindi treatment.Up to us to choose whatever we want to do with our diabetes.

Whether WHO knows about Indian practices? Can WHO make a recommendation to totally avoid red-meat? Whether WHO recommend against consumption of alcohol? All are lobby-based at the cost of normal human-being health. Recommendations should not be for the so-called diabetic patients. If it is wrong for the so-called diabetic patients, it is equally bad for so-called healthy persons.

PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE. That's why Insurance Companies do not provide coverage for preventive medicines. They expect the policy holders should suffer from diseases so that doctors and hospitals can make money in the name of treatment and insurance companies will also grow by capturing more policy holders, who afraid of.

Why we are referring to USA and European recommendations? Our (Indian) culture, living style are totally different from those.

It is not fair to write off the role of WHO in Indian healthcare system.They have done tremendous work in polio,TB,women and child care,family planning etc etc.Their guidelines are based on the knowledge gained from worldwide sources and not specific to the West.And,our own people are associated with WHO in a big way through their country specific initiatives.Indian doctors are not gullible to accept any guidelines if they are not applicable to India.Let us also remember that India is heading to be the diabetic capital of the world,because of too much reliance on carbohydrates.I personally feel comfortable with the guidelines.For example,lowest number suggested is 70 and whenever I face hypo the reading is always below 70.Whenever sugar level is high problems like itching,small wounds not healing,poor memory etc. crop up.Refuting WHO guidelines means refuting the tremendous advances made by medical science over the last few decades.We are lucky that we are living in 21st century.In the first half of previous century,a diabetic would have lost a limb or arm due to gangrene or worse,a painful death.Let us not reinvent the wheel.

I am talking about Indian corporate hospitals and the insurance coverage attitude. A simple example: A couple who have crossed the age of 55, have to pay the Health Insurance premium which cover among other things, Pregnancy related treatments, delivery charges and baby care. At the same time they do not cover age-related problems (not invited illness), such as ophthalmic, dental and rheumatic. Health Insurance in India covers only critical illness. What it is the percentage of mortality due to heart attacks? It is meagre as compared to the total healthy population.

Although the statistics say that Cardiovascular deaths account for 24.8% of total deaths in India. Remember this percentage is among the total deaths. Also, even if a person dies at the age of 90+, although it is a natural death, the doctor's death certificate will mention 'cardiovascular'.

Don't you think this is absurd?

I will not say I am diabetic - but would say "I am diagnosed as diabetic". However, no physical symptoms noted, typically every so-called diabetic patient will show. I am not on any medicines, but healthy. I have seen may of our friends and relatives who are under treatment along with "strict diet control", maintain their HbA1C more than 7; few of them have even gone to insulin injections. WHY?

Most so-called diabetic patients are suggested not-to-eat certain fruits and vegetables and therefore they are deprived of certain nutrients. Lack of such nutrients in the long term make them susceptible to certain health attacks as their immunity level degrades. These may lead to failure of critical organs such as eyes, kidney, etc. They fail not because of sugar content in the blood, but due to lack of nutrients in-take for long.

I am sorry to say that one lady (my close relative) aged 80+ was on insulin for couple of years (her HbA1C was around 8-9) and she was totally avoiding banana and mango for more than 10 years as suggested by her Diabetic Specialist doctor. But she was shown to another doctor (as I was strongly opposing to showing her to a pathological doctor), who is a qualified Pathological doctor, but practicing Indian medicine. He suggested her few lifestyle changes and also to start consuming bananas.

She is having bananas last one year and she is totally out of Insulin and her HbA1C is 6.5 now.

Fasting blood sugar (FBS): Normal-- 100 mg/dL (American Diabetic Association) 110 mg/dL (WHO). Prediabetes--Between 101 to 125 mg/dL. Diabetes--More than 126 mg/dL.

Postprandial blood sugar (PPBS): Normal--Less than 140 mg/dL. Prediabetes: Between 140 to 199 mg/dL. Diabetes--Equal or more than 200 mg/dL.

The diagnostic criteria for diabetes has been fixed by the World Health Organization.

Globally 285 million people currently have diabetes which is estimated to double by 2030 AD.

Diabetes is currently the fifth most common reason for death in the world.

- Being stress-free;

- 100% strict vegetarian;

- having only Indian millets (no rice; no wheat and any other similar cereals);

- having food only if feel hungry; similarly, I drink water only if I feel thirsty (I don't buy the argument that a person SHOULD drink at least 2 litres of water a day);

- having only two meals a day; two portions of fruits; finishing the dinner by 07:00 PM

I beg to differ. Never ever say that "many are suffering from Diabetes". They were told by the allopathic doctors that they are diabetic. Having the so-called "diabetes" in the so-called ranges and not having any symptoms, then they are not suffering.

the above range of sugar levels reflect the average of what was observed in clinical experience of thousands of symptomatic diabetics , and is not a single persons opinion
