Smile Hello from India

Hi people, I am Akshat from India. I am 28 years old. I am having diabetes since 2 years. However, it is undiagnosed.

I finally found a community where i can share my thoughts.

Diabetes is not making my life easy, therefore I have even started research in finding out solutions that can make life easy for indian people.

I hope i find some applications as the one which are there in the US and other countries so that I can help myself, my father who is also a diabetic and other diabetic patients as well.

Lets c. It feels good to join here.

One solution that helps diabetics a lot is eating low carb/high fat.

Because you haven't been diagnosed yet, that might mean you are catching your diabetes in the early stage, which means you might be able to control it with diet and exercise alone, if that is what you want to do. That is what my husband and I have been doing for the past two years.

These two websites are very helpful to diabetics:

Blood Sugar 101

LCHF for beginners

We have a good number of members from India, who have had good success in controlling their diabetes. The links you've been given will help you get started on the road to success.

The first thing you should do is get a meter and start testing regularly and frequently. Test as soon as you waken for the day; then test just before you start eating a meal. Two more tests are suggested for after the meal . . . one test at the one-hour interval and another at the two-hour interval. The results of these tests will show you how you body responds to the food you eat, and will help you avoid the foods which cause high blood sugar.

Welcome to the forum akshat. I am from New Delhi but in south africa for another 3 weeks.

The key here is diet and regular testing. Regular testing means testing after every meal to find out the foods that have a good and bad effect on your blood sugars. Using this data we start eliminating the foods that have a negative impact on our blood sugar readings..

Do you have a meter yet ? How are your numbers now and do you have weight to loose ?
