A fortnight or so ago I interacted in this forum with Mr Anup for my numb feet. After interaction with him, I bought meter and daily checked my bs levels. They were in the range of 170 to 190 mg pp.
By his advice to switching to low carbo, high fat diet, I found my bs levels is in the range of 120-125 mg pp regularly. I am now taking 1 chapati/day with lots of green veg,fruits, nuts, curd etc.
I have noticed my bs level is under control even if I miss my dose of metformin 500mg some morning or evening. But bs pp is above 140 mg, if I eat more carbo, inspite of having taken medicine. Also my weight has reduced considerably. Last time 10 days ago it was 75kg reduced from 78kgs approx. Now the bulge in my stomach is gone. Previously I used to tell people that look, my weight has reduced and them telling me that I am mistaken. Now people telling me that I look slimmer. That too when I have started taking high fat diet. I am more energetic, look younger now and numbness in my feet is reduced considerably.
Along with metformin and BP medicine, I daily walk 5-7 kms for the last six months or so.
I am grateful to Mr Anup for his selfless guidance. I also thank owner of this blog for starting this very useful platform and all other blog mates who showed their concern to my problem.
I do not expect things to be perfectly normal in future, but I expect to have better control with low carbo high fat diet. I changed to LCHF diet with very good results. This is for everyone's kind information.
