I am doing this post just to get some valuable feedback and advice from learned members of the forum.I am a 77 year old male, diabetic since more than 25 years.I am reasonably active and all my blood and urine reports are very satisfactory.Eye sight,liver,kidney,heart etc are well within range.So is the case with my lipid profile and electrolytes.My HbA1C is around 7 and my doctor says it is quite good for my age.I walk regularly for about 35 minutes every day and lead a secluded life without any entanglements.My only interests are music,you tube videos concerning politics,nature,wildlife and such other non stressful subjects.
I am in insulin NOVAMIX 50, 8+16units,Metformin 500 mg and Vidagliptin 50 mg.
Following is my diet pattern,almost all days.
Morning one cup of herbal decoction freshly prepared using commonly available herbs like corionder leaves,curry leaves,drumstick leaves or fenugreek leaves on a weekly rotation basis.
Breakfast consists of one scrambled egg,about 45 gr of steel cut oats made into porridge and 7 almonds microwawed for 75 seconds.
Around 11.30 am and 5.30 pm I eat two digestive biscuits and some roasted chick peas.
I eat fruits like orange, papaya or musk melon,rather often.
Lunch consists of little millete(G I of around 30 to 35) two vegetables,lentils and yogurt (curd).
Restaurant or catered food once in a blue moon on occasions.
You will observe that all the foods I eat are of low glycemic value.By nature,I am a light eater and so glycemic load factor is also taken care of.
