Default Intro

i am from a third world country India, my city is kolkata the former british capital of india.
i have come to know that i have diabetes in the month of sept 2017 after my mother deceased at the age of 63 only. i live with my father,wife,daughter and above all my mother's mother who is seven years short of 100.

i measured my fasting as 157 and pp as 240 on 1st Nov. a very old friend of mine(25 years) suggested me to check my sugar level as he suspected that i might have it heredetically from my mother who died just because of the side effects of the medicine she used to take for her blood sugar for the past 30 years. it is only that time i have come to know about ny BS.
fortunately enough i have not started any kind of allopathy medicine . all i do is to take alternative medicine that is ayurved, (ayu means life,ved means process). i first started looking tgrough all you tube videos to gather knowledge regarding sugar and its root cause. i found that the beta cell of pancreas is the main cause of this. i quit smoking ,habit i grow for last 26 years. i flush out all the toxins that are producing free radicals deposited inside me for the next 15 days with the help of ayurved. i opened up the cell mouth blocked by unwanted fats so that insulin can take the glucose inside it to produce energy effectively.i clean my liver so that it can take care of the sugar when i do not eat.if the liver can take 20% load, pancreas will get rid of the stress and will behave well to maintain the pp sugar..
After doing all this for 3 months my fasting is now 108 and pp 164.

Hello and welcome to the forum.

Sorry for the loss of your mother. If you don't mind my asking, what was the medicine and the side effect?

They say there is some heredity involved with the onset of Type 2 diabetes, so it is good you are being proactive in looking for education about it. A YouTube video that passes along very good information is this one. It may totally disagree with other videos you may have seen. I'm guessing that you've seen Neal Barnard videos.


Another good source of information is BloodSugar101.

The key to controlling can be as simple as eliminating or limiting the very thing that converts to glucose in your blood, that is carbohydrates. Meds may not even be necessary for controlling Type 2 if carbs are minimized. Congrats on getting your BG coming down, but it needs to be below 140 at all times if you can get it there to prevent damage and complications in the future. Diabetes is a slow and sure killer if you let it.

Welcome to the forum, avichandana!

My condolences on your mother's death. You are to be congratulated for addressing and managing your blood glucose levels. So many with similiar heredity and risk factors just motor along until damage is done.

As mbuster suggests, comprehensively managing issues with metabolizing glucose must include reviewing what you eat. mbuster has provided some very good resources; you'll find lots of advice and information in this forum, as well.

I'm looking forward to seeing more of your posts!

BloodSugar101 is really very helpful.

i have watched the videos regarding the physiology of diabetes.
like ....(not allowed to post the link)
the key to control D is lowering the inflammation. As you said lowering carbs do that.

Father throws away all the medics mother used to take after her death. so i cannot actually name them now.

You should be able to edit and post links after 5 post, unless the post counter is asleep.
