Diabetes is an important defect in the body and needs a closer watch and control. I find that many queries raised in the forum are fundamental and people with diabetes are exhibiting zero knowledge on the same. Many diabetic patients are not consulting good diabetic doctors and rather use the forum to get a cure! May I suggest that this trend is changed and use the forum to exchange issues that can add value to the diabetes. I also recommend that people are discouraged from using the forum for sale and profit.

As I have always said " life is yours, health is yours and decision is always yours ". So please don't blame forum for wrong decision taken by an indivisual. Many people in this forum are very knowledgeable ,so it is totally wrong to says that people in this forum are not aware of fundamentals of diabetes. Can you provide any example to substantiate your charge , Mr.shivaraman ?

I hv been a tad for over 15 years...still on tablets. I brisk walk regularly for 50 minutes , do yogasanas, particularly 'diabetic' asanas eg vakrasan. But last two years I hv been swimming 30 minutes at least for 5 days a week. After a 40 minutes breaststroke swim, my sugar level drops to 80 from 160. Not yet met any diabetologist who specifically recommends swimming (as opposed to brisk walking)

In today's most commercial scenario of market and nexus of doctors and pharma one must always trust his own intelligence. May I say the common sense???

My total cholesterol was 165 HDL was 37 and LDL was 117.Was prescribed statin.I refused and doctor ordered for stress test.Which I passed out with flying colours.Still doctor said you must take statin or reducing CVD risk after 10 years. LOL...is this same what Angelia Joli did???

Thank you Anujee.....by cutting carbs only.....in one month my total cholestrol 168: HDL 43 and LDL 109.....I am sure by next month I will be below magic figure of below 100 for LDL.

I personally checked my last 15 years LDL levels they were naturally low as 89.( Fortunately I have all my Cholesterol reports of mine for last 15 yrs)So I guess life style modification and Diet is sufficient for me.

I always wonder why doctors are forcing stains then????

Any answer??

Hi Ganesh!

I am Shoib! I have recently been diagnosed with Hypogycemia. I have very little knowledge about this issue although I have had mild diabetes for a while now. This unfortunately is a new development. So far I did a little research and asked a few people about how I can manage to control the issue. I found out that people with diabetes get hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) when their bodies don't have enough sugar to use as energy. Each person may have different symptoms.Low blood glucose can be very dangerous and should be treated right away. So, I have been taking this pill justdoc.com/medicine/cobade... for the last two years. However, my condition wasnt as bad. So, I was wondering if I should continue taking these medicines and do some natural remedies to improve my condition or should I just consult a professional and get my medicines. Moreover, if someone with a similar experience could guide me with what are the changes that I should be making to my diet and lifestyle to make things better, that would be very helpful. Thank you
