Dear Members,I have been listening and reading about diabetes since long.Gradually I have understood that diabetes is not a pure physical disease but also conditioned by mind.My keen observation is that most of diabetics conclude that medicines, injectibles and oral, will "control" the disease.Unfortunately it does not.This misconception about medicines lead the affected to eat and sit,thinking medicines will take care of sugar.Sometimes say many a times I have seen people prompting a diabetic to eat and drink inspite of having knowledge that the person is a diabetic.A very common statement -"kuch nahi hoga".Sadly the diabetic also starts believing "kuch nahi hoga"!Lack of self study of diet and medicines and the disease has created a situation of ignorance.I have seen patients avoiding sweets and gulping frieds.I have seen people not observing how they react to food they eat and then what to drop and what to continue.I have seen diabetics who feel proud in eating high calorie food and boast I cannot do without eating and "kuch nahi hota ".
Please try to treat diabetes in totality. The best food is as follows
Rotis and sabzis and fruits and lots of water. Do not think what else you can eat.
Walk slowly and happily for three to five kms everyday.Junk that 'brisk walk theory 'Remember a diabetic has to walk for years and keep feet and knee fit.
Do not be ambitious and be happy with what you have achieved.
