Diabetic

I am now 49 years old and I am having type II diabetic since year 2000. Intitally I used to take daonil 5mg for one month, then I reduced to 2.5 mg. After 6 months I stopped taking the medicines regularily. When I approached doctor, he advised me to continue the medication. Since then I am taking medicines. I used to check my sugar level in the empty stomack regularily. It was okay for 2-3 years. Last 8 months my doctor advised me to change the medicine to Amaryl 1mg & Glocopage and it is to be taken in the morning only. Now for the last few months, my sugar level is showing 140 - 150 - 155 in the empty stomack.

Please advise me how to bring to normal sugar level. I am doing at least 30 minutes walk every day.

Appreciate your kind advise.

Regards,

B.S. Pillai

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Listen to your doctor! You seem to get better following his advice.

Just kidding of course.

Your goal is to have bs in normal range without the medicine. You were on the right track before dr's advice #1

Your second goal (or rather first) is to have bs normal with medicine-that was true before dr's advice #2

Seems like the "good" doctor's goal is to keep you sick and with medicine. Since you'd rather listen to dr than to your body seems like he is succeeding.

Allopathic drugs usually antidote hom. rem. and it requires a very close management if someone is taking drugs every day like you.
I may only give you 2 tips that I know from people who have type II diabetes:

1. although drinking is not indicated a very small amount (like 50 m) of extra dry, very red wine with dinner is actually good

2. every day eat mixture of lowfat cottage cheese or yogurt with flaxseed oil (read dr. Johanna Budwig on the Internet)

use biofeedback with everything=measure your bs to see if something is good or bad for you.

In addition to Astras tips may I also recommend that you read your blood sugars at various times, not just on an empty stomach.

If you read the sugar levels soon before eating and also 2 hours after eating you will get a better picture of what your sugars are doing throughout the day and can then adjust your diet more closely. You don't need to read before and after every meal unless you want to , just vary the ones you read from day to day to begin with.
Remember that exercise reduces blood sugars but that exercising when the sugars are very high can actually do the opposite! So moderation in this. Also if you exercise vigorously this can cause the blood sugars to be lowered even many hours later as your body recovers its energy levels.
Other things that can cause blood sugars to increase are - stress and illness.

I really hope your doctor has also referred you to a nutrionist for extra advice and support?

Erika hit the nail on the head.

See a professional nutritionist, one who is trained and experienced in working with diabetics.

Please make sure your physician is kept informed of everything you do for your diabetes, just in case.

I wish you the very best of health. Good luck!! :-)

Oh I almost forgot --

Do you smoke tobacco? If you do, it would be VERY good if you stopped. Nicotine in the tobacco causes blood sugar to rise. It's very harmful for a diabetic person to smoke, it advances the disease very quickly.

Best of health to you! :-)
 
Orume last decade
It's new to me that tobacco causes blood sugars to rise?? but then, who knows, it is all possible!

In any case smoking mostly causes problems as it contributes to circulatory problems which prevent proper oxygen flow to cells/heart etc. - in diabetes this is problematic.
 
erika last decade
it also causes capillaries to contract and in diabetes blood is much more dense-that's why they are prone to kidney's-eyes-heart's disease-and circulatory problems in feet.
So the logic says: drink lots of mineral water!

You may be interested to learn that Cinnamon which is grown extensively in Sri Lanka has been found to reduce Blood Sugar and Cholesterol levels.

A study was made in 2003 and the results were recorded in Diabetes Care in the December 2003 issue. The study ran for only 40 days and included 60 patients with type 2 diabetes. It showed that one, three or six grams of cinnamon daily, divided into two doses (that amounts to between a quarter of a teaspoon to 1 teaspoon a day), lowered fasting glucose by 18 to 29 percent, triglycerides by 23 to 30 percent, LDL cholesterol by 7 to 27 percent, and total cholesterol by 12 to 26 percent.

I have recommended its use to a number of Type 2 patients and they have reported relief and in a few cases they have replaced their tablets with the Cinnamon.

A word of caution: Cinnamon in large doses may be toxic, so donÕt assume that if the relatively small amounts used in the study help, larger amounts will work better. ThereÕs also the possibility that adding cinnamon to your diet will change the dose of medication you need, so you should monitor your blood sugar carefully.

I used to take glucophage 850 mg twice a day. Currently, I skip my medication and my morning fasting blood sugar level is between 95 to 118. The secret is that I drink bitter melon tea instead. It cost me $3 per 2.2 oz package and last about 4 days. I am researching the magic behind that vegetable and will introduce it in my website later. Since the cost is so low and effect verifiable (by pricking your fingertip), I strongly encourage you visit your local Asian supermarket to buy a package and experiment it.
 
bitter last decade
I am copying my post on another thread on Diabetes which may be of interest to those who are on this thread:

Bitter Gourd has been in use for centuries as an Ayurvedic remedy for diabetes in Sri Lanka. I was intrigued by the reference to Bitter Lemon and discovered that both are one and the same.

It is boiled and the liquid is used like tea and those who use it testify to its remarkably property of reducing blood sugar.

You can read more about this vegetable on:
