Type II Diabetes is very common among south Asians and the Chinese. Indians and Chinese may easily constitute 75% of world population of diabetics. It is a life style disease among sedentary and obese people which if not controlled can lead to devastating complications affecting practically all important systems of the body like brain & nervous system, eyes, heart, kidneys, arteries and so on, Control is not impossible but not very difficult to achieve. Diet and exercise are the cornerstone of management. One has to discipline oneself and that is most important first step.
Simple brisk walking for 30 minutes a day is enough. This can be done in one go or in two or even three parts during the day. One should start walking at normal pace and gradually increase the speed so as to reach a level to cover one km in 6 minutes. This may take one to three months.
Diet should include lot of proteins with minimal fats and less carbohydrates. Best would be to avoid both deep- and shallow-fried stuffs at any cost. Extra Virgin Olive oil is the only good oil. Desi ghee is the least harmful followed by Kachi ghani mustard oil. All other oils including sunflower oil are definitely HARMFUL. Avoid sweet fruits such as grape, banana, chikoo, mango, and dates. Citrus fruits and all sorts of berries can be taken in any quantity. Blueberries are the best among berries. Apple, pear and apricot in moderation. Nuts are good especially walnut and almonds.
