- Hi Everybody,
I am glad I've joined this forum, hope I will be useful to everyone, my short story is that 6 years ago (age of 48) FBG showed 117, I was advised to be careful in my diet, but because I am skinny, not a big eater, and not much sweet lover, I did not give that advise big attention. (mistake, it runs in the family, my Mother and her Father)
One month ago when I felt so week I visited the Doctor and was diagnosed as diabetic, with FBG 262 and 443 2hPP , the Doctor decided a long list of pills, it was shocking, I hate medication specially chemical ones, so I stated to understand more about diabetes.
I decided to give physical exercise and a very tight diet a chance before taking any pills and to visit another Doctor, to my pleasure I reached FBS 136 and 186 2hPP just after one month, cholesterol down from 288 to 249, (LDL down to 152) and the list of pills has been reduced to glocophage RX 1000, zocor for cholesterol control, and cozaar for high BP.
Just today I started to take the prescribed medication but later I am planing and targeting for herbal treatments to replace chemicals as much as I can,
Hope my past and future experiences benefit all of you and to give a boost for a happy life.
