Anybody tried Guava Leaf Tea for blood sugar regulation?

Dear all,

I am 43 year old female. Had gestational diabetes 7 years ago. Became diabetic again since one year. Started allopathic medicine last month as the FBS reached 290 and PPBS 280. Even after taking medicine , the FBS still was high 180 and PPBS 230. Started taking guava leaf tea after food and pleasantly surprised by the result as the FBS became 108 and PPBS 90-130. Anyone in the community ever tried this? Does this result last? Thank you for your time.

Adopt low carbohydrate diet.

Check your blood sugar (FBS or PPBS) every day and avoid foods that cause high blood sugar.
