Diabetic patients who have been prescribed medication for their condition, should NOT attempt any special diets in lieu of medicine without their doctor’s permission.
Eat healthier, do regular and appropriate exercises and take yoga training that helps one manage diabetes. These protocols may lead to the need for a medication dose reduction and maybe even medication withdrawal. The point is that it is very important that the patient stay within the purview of the doctor.
There are many stories about diabetic patients doing drastic supervised diets in order to successfully avoid using medication. This is recommended with doctors’ supervision only. Many doctors are keen to find non-medical solutions for their patients. There are dried coconut flower concoctions which lower blood sugar. Powdered dried mangosteen skin is also a good remedy for the same thing. There are many ayurvedic tablets which claim to control diabetes.
Type 2 diabetes mellitus can affect the heart, blood vessels, nerves, eyes, kidneys and life span. It is a serious condition. In some cases, it can be managed by diet alone. With very careful attention to food and drink consumption, exercise regimes, and yoga for diabetes, it is possible in certain people to manage diabetes without medication.
The trigger in the lifestyle aspect of the Type 2 diabetes epidemic relates in greatly in part to the amount of sugar in food, available for sale. So many products nowadays have hidden sugars in them. The dramatic rise of obesity these days is in part due to this problem. For example, manufactured tomato sauce has significant amounts of sugar, preservatives and additives. For a savory sauce to have such high sugar content is not foreseeable to the person with common sense.
Factory made bread also contain an inordinate amount of sugar. If one is lucky enough to have access to accurate labeling on the food product one wants, one should look at the amount of sugar, carbohydrate, glucose and fat therein.
Diabetics must educate themselves better
