Treatment of Diabetes getting worst in India

Hi All,

I met one of my Friends father recently. He is struggling to control his Sugar level since 1999.

I asked him how are you managing it now a days.

He told me his story as follows:-

I was pre-diabetic since 1999, till 2005 i was able to manage it through exercise. After 2005 it was getting worst so i started using metaformin . after 10 years i am using insulin now(12 unit night ) plus 2 doses of metaformin.

I asked any medical help you have taken . He said yes i have consulted one dietitian he told me to follow the following diet.

Stop :-

Milk Product

No Chicken No eggs No chapati

Take:-

banana

Grapes

Rice with daal

Eat Sweet if you want but moderate in quantity.

This example reminds me the sentence of Mr. Anup "Indian Doctors do not have any basic knowledge of Diabetes "

Seriously These kind of Doctors and dietitians are killing the patients by giving such menu.

No Doctors gives the perfect solution of diabetes which is diet change (Less carb High Fat) . I dont know why ?

Myself Having diabetes since Aug 2015

I am experimenting many things these days.

Conclusion :- Diabetes is all about diet change nothing else. If you eat Less carb you are doing a favor to your body as well overall health.

Why do you mention sedentary life style... or no exercise...As young generation in forum may take it in other way ...no exercising with LCHF is way to be healthy :) :)...You are posting in forum as LCHF icon ...People can cherry pick from your posts or responses :):)obviously You will not like if your son is eating too much junk food and carbs but even if he is not exercising in daily routine, you will scold him:):)

I want to say 'unbelievable', but tragically touting this nonsense is the reason we are in the worldwide, societal mess we are now!

In USA they drink juice with each meal that is loaded with sugar...white bread and junk food is famous in USA. So their diet is loaded with extra carbs and abundant calories...in USA people are addicted of juices

In country like Korea ...meat and sea food is major part of their every meal and people eat very less grains and if grains...only rice... they dont know about wheat :) .Grown ups eat almost zero sugar in everyday diet and moreover they are very hard working...all their drinks contain no sugar and no salt

My wife went for lunch at her korean friend's house...they had roasted chicken(No beef ...as they know Indians feel offended if they eat beef on same table) ,lot of salad , black coffee and some cake with very light sugar for their lunch ...nothing more than this...no rice ...no bread...they gave my wife lot of salad and one tortilla with cheese sprinkled on that and cake as a vegetarian meal :) :)
