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.
No Chicken No eggs No chapati
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.
