diabetes and native medicine

I am diabetic for 15 years.I am on GEMER1 medication. I was suggested a native medicine prepared by a renowned medical institution. .I used to measure glucose level very often with one touch. I found the following result. It showed reduced glycemic levels in fasting ie up to 100.but it shooted up pp reading to anything upto 200 which I never had before.I want to share my experiance .

I had foot septic and underwent surgery in a speciality hospital..Insulin 'nova mix 22+16 and nova rapid 10 units were prescribed for 5 months.Now I have been advised to discotiniue insulin and put on TAB .GEMER 1 1+1.I am seeing my physician at regular intervals and am using one touch once in a week or whenever I feel my glycemic level is too low. My H1bA1 last two test showed 6.5 and 6.9.


I do not know which native medicine you were using; But if you were on Glimperide 1mg, you should better continue with it, instead of experimenting with unknown drugs.

i have used glimipride 1 mg. though it is good it induces heavy sleep in some cases.


I am diabatice type-II for the last 20 years. I have tested all types of native/ayurvedic/unani etc. Never trust these medicines. they just don't work.

Consult a MB BS ddoctor or a specialist for consultation. if u r a starter 500mg metaformin will do.it comes with many commercial names.


I use Aurvedic and Allopathic medicines and have noticed that both to gether work better

as use of only allopathic medicines needs change of medicines and increase in doses.


at the risk of being called in a "spammer" i would like to enjoin the discussion. i am not a person against either allopathic or native medicine, both have their own plus and minus points. as an informed individual, i would say that a judicious mix of herbs can bring down the blood sugar drastically in a short span of time. one such formulation is AdyaSanjivni. website address: adyaecoproducts.com. i am surviving on gluconomG2 and my sugar was hovering areound 259 for a long time, now i have a 25% fall after taking this herbal formula. probably you can also try this without discontinuing doctor's prescription. this is my personal view.
