My Pre-Diabetes is lessening after 10 years because I am taking Fenugreek seeds daily

I have been Pre-diabetic from last 10 or more years, without it becoming Diabetes. Recently, one month ago I started in taking 2 glasses of Fenugreek(Methi) crushed seeds fermented in hot water daily, without fail, and in just one month's treatments my FBS and PPBS lessened much, and even my HbA1C also lessened. Even my LDL cholesterol has come down, and so has the Triglycerides and the Total Cholesterol also. Now I have given blood for a number of Thyroid tests as I have been diagnosed with mild Goitre, I am waiting to see what are the results for that.

I advise everyone who are Pre-diabetic only, and whoever are not on any Diabetes medications, to try taking 2 glasses of Fenugreek daily, it should be crushed, and in one to 3 months they will really see a wonderful difference in both FBS and PPBS and HbA1C also (but not Diabetics who are on medications, as Fenugreek will cause them to become hypoglycemic). However, the catch is that once the Pre-diabetics have become completely Non-diabetic after 3 months of daily 2 glasses of Fenugreek intaking, they should not give up drinking it, as again, their blood sugar will increase back into Pre-diabetes again, and then eventually into Diabetes. And they have to compulsorily stick to drinking 2 glasses of Fenugreek daily for the remaining of their lives. It does taste extremely bitter, so one can sweeten it with a little honey, (but not too much honey as honey also contains sugar). Just hold your breath and drink it up, and think you are doing something worthwhile for your body. And I have also noticed every time after I complete drinking one glass of Fenugreek liquid, my body feels really comfortable and good, at least for some time. I have given my blood tests results below for reference of anyone who might be interested in knowing how Fenugreek has affected me.

My blood tests taken in Oct, 2017:

FBS-94

PPBS-152

HbA1C-6.1

Blood tests done on July 3rd, 2018, after approximately one month's of daily drinking 2 glasses of crushed Fenugreek fermented liquid :

FBS-87

PPBS-131

HbA1C-5.8

So as all can see, how much better my results are. I urge every Pre-diabetic who is not on any Diabetes medicines, to try it and see for themselves the improved results they can get. But Diabetics on medicines should not try this method, as it can cause them to become Hypoglycemic. Also, one should completely cut out sugar and all sweet items from their diet, and also junk food, oily and fried food and non vegetarian foods should also be limited. And I am also eating daily 1 tsp of Extra Virgin, Organic and Cold pressed Coconut oil along with my meals. The Extra Virgin Organic Coconut Oil has Lauric acid in it which is supposed to be very helpful for both Diabetics and also for Hypothyroidism patients.

And I am not on any Diabetic medications for managing my Pre-diabetes, so I can safely take Fenugreek seeds daily.

Thanks everyone for reading.

You have controlled it very well, being a prediabetic do you feel any kind of weakness during the day or not?

What is your age & weight? Do you have any diabetic history in your family?

What was your hba1c count 10 years back?

I wish that you could keep your hba1c count in the same range for the rest of your life.

Thank you for your response. Yes I have weakness, excessive fatigue, muscle aches and pains, joint aches, bones weakness the entire lot. But I also have Hypothyroidism from last 21 years, so that also contributes to all these problems.

I am 50 years, Indian woman, and yes there have been lots of diabetics in my father's side of the family and some also in my Mother's side. My father himself was an uncontrollable Diabetic patient, and that is the reason why he expired too soon. My mother does not have any Diabetes.

I am sorry I do not know my HbA1c count for 10 years ago. And also to be diagnosed as a complete Non-Diabetic, I have to bring down my HbA1c down completely to 5.6 or lesser. I hope to do this in the next 3 months, with 2 glasses of Fenugreek liquid daily drinking, doing regular Yoga and walking exercises, and also completely staying off sweets, sugary stuff, and also totally limiting my consumption of oily, deep fried, fatty and non-vegetarian items also, and also with daily moderate physical activities. If I can lose more weight, as I am 10 kilos obese, then also my blood sugars of both FBS and PPBS and also HbA1C will all totally more decrease. As will my cholesterol levels also, although now also they are all in totally normal range.

Thanks for your interest in reading and for your reply.

You are right I am also following same formula along with cinnamon and bitergroud

I do not know about cinnamon, since I did some extensive research on the internet about consuming cinnamon, and it was mentioned only Ceylon cinnamon is considered to be the best and safest, but also it is extremely costly. So I am not taking that at present.

sir, please give exact recipe of making fenugreek seed -2 glasses, mentioning weight of seeds, crushing, fermenting time, water qty in lts, and time and frequency of drinking it, for maximum benefits. In depth recipe It will help all who need it.

Thank you for your interest in reading my post. I take daily 2 glasses of fenugreek liquid. This is how I make it: I have completely powdered fenugreek seeds and stored them in an airtight container. For one glass of Fenugreek liquid, I boil one glass of filtered water, then put it down from the stove, add 1 heaped tbsp of Fenugreek powder to it, cover the bowl, and let it ferment for 5 to 7 minutes. At the end of 7 minutes, I uncover the bowl, in which time the seed's contents will have steeped into the hot water. Then I filter it, add a 1/4 tsp of honey to the liquid I get after filtering it, mix the honey well, and drink it holding my breath, although you can still taste its extremely bitter taste. I do this twice daily. I do not have any exact times as to when I take in both the glasses, as usually I am very busy in house work and outside things, so I only drink in both glasses as soon as I get some free time. And for the 2nd glass I leave some hours time gap from the first glass, so as not to overload my system. I think there are some important criterion to be followed as to whether the liquid should be taken before food or after food. I am unfortunately not able to follow that as I have rarely free time. You should do some Google search as to the times of ingesting it.

One can also soak some Fenugreek uncrushed seeds overnight, and the next day take in the liquid. One can also semi-crush the seeds and then ferment it with hot water and ingest that also.

Thanks. One heaped table spoon is 15 grams by weight and one glass of water is 250 ml. These are standard expresses. In these treatment, little variation in measurements, will not matter, for sure.

There is something wrong here - TWO glasses of Fenugreek Crushed ??

How many grams or pounds of Fenugreek seeds do you crush every day ?

Reply

I add 1 heaped tablespoon of crushed Fenugreek seeds for fermenting in per glass of hot boiling water. I think 1 tbsp means approximately 10 grams, although mine are heaped Tbsps.

What did you do last ten years ? what was HbA1 C - 12 months ago and 3 years ago ?

Reply

I did absolutely nothing to bring down my Pre-diabetes in last 10 years, as I did not know about this Fenugreek seeds effect at that time. Around 3 years ago, my FBS was 98, PPBS was 107 and Hba1c was 5.8. Around approximately one year ago, my FBS was 96, PPBS was 142, and Hba1c was 5.9. I am sorry I do not have the reports from last 10 years.

nothing to close the nose and drink. it can be consumed. Even diabetic people can consume and the sugar level comes down. Also, I would say that it is not a disease and it because of carbohydrate food and particularly 'WHEAT, MILLETS and all wheat based. Corn and Frujit juices to be avoided and also Milk, buttermilk, curd and also root based veg.. It can be normalised by Accu pressure and there are specialist and it can be cured even without medicine

No need to crush, you can drink water and eat the feenugreek. the Accupressure treatment hardly 5 seconds treatment and may be few sittings with doctor

Reply

Dear Sir, have you tried Acupressure for Diabetes treatment? And has it really helped you? Please let us all know, so others can also try it.

Reply

yes, very effective and even a known person mother went to the same doctor and she is elderly female and her son told that what his mother is no body ache. after couple of sitting, hardly few seconds treatment only the treatment. there is no advertisement and it just through mouth. It is in Madras and the doctor only works for couple of days (two different area) and other days his personal works. These are not disease and one can stay a healthy life. Please try to avoid Wheat and wheat based all, milk, curd, buttermilk (as all have sugar for some days.

Reply

Thank you sir, for your immediate reply. But I do not understand how can Acupressure be done only for a few seconds, and only through the mouth? I thought Acupressure means putting pressure on a few reflexology points throughout the body, which ever pertain to the particular health problem.

This is the beauty and must see the rush in the doctors place whee patients come and even cancer is treated for long distance. there is no piercing through needle. He will just hold hand and pressure the points and charge. When his wife was pregnant (three children, she never visited doctor for consultation from beginning and all normal delivery and healthy. You can also visit, subject to your visit to madras This doctor place is close to by my house.
