With your strict vegetarian diet it is going to be difficult to lower your BG. And, if you're not going to eat fats, it will be impossible - in my opinion.

Fats are not the reason you have high blood pressure. Fats are not responsible for high cholesterol. However, eating lots of carbs and fats is not healthy. So those diabetics who want to gain good control - which means BG lower than 140/7.8 at all times - eat very few carbs, and increase our fats quite a bit. Eating this way usually reduces cholesterol (raises HDL and lowers triglycerides) and normalizes blood pressure.

And you will not want to hear this, but those roti you don't want to give up? they have about 30g of carbs in JUST ONE. For me, that means that would be my only source of carbs for the day, and I'd have to cut it up and have a piece at each meal.

However many popular indian dishes are very diabetic-friendly for me: tikka masala (made with heavy cream), butter chicken, saag dishes, paneer.

I just make "alternative" sauce-soppers using almond flour and other alternatives to wheat and grains. Granted, I do not eat vegetarian, but the sauces themselves can be used with your preferred protein alternative.

Harilal? Glimipride will burn out your pancreas and cause you to become insulin-dependent - sad but true. Pioglitazone has nothing to do with stopping your hunger - it is just another oral diabetes drug which doctors keep throwing at the problem, and yes, it has been banned in India, Europe and other places.

Unless you tell us what your blood sugar readings are, we are unable to accept that you are perfectly controlled . . . there is nobody here who is perfectly controlled (well, grammaB is the exception to the rule! ♥), regardless of how strongly they believe they are. Tell us your numbers.

Thanks Shanny, My Sugar level with Metform 500 mg is Fasting average 98 and PP is 155.
before medication fasting is 114 and PP is 215.

After few months I slept 7 hours continues yesterday night. I am very grateful to this diabetes form and its members. I had gone almost 30 specialists to get a remedy for my excessive hunger. They gave me sleeping drugs, psychological drugs and even arthritics drugs. I almost fed up. With disturbed sleep life was horrible for me.

Hello from India.

The "specialists" you mention are just that - specialists at prescribing drugs. While the actual answer lies in diet. Like Hippocrates said 2500 years ago - "All diseases begin in the gut". Astute wisdom.

As a vegetarian things are going to be difficult, but they can be done. Foxl here is vegan, but is ketotic most of the time. Try to include eggs in your diet if you can. And you will have to rely on a lot of fats coming from dairy products or coconut / olive oil.

Wow, Shanny, thank you for the compliment. But as we all know, we have to constantly work on that control, relentlessly. There is no food out there that is worth my eyesight or a trade off for my toes or fingers.
