I am new here. At last, stumbled upon an Indian forum for Diabetes! I am glad to be here.
This is a long post, kindly bear with me.
Well, by profession, I am an IT Manager.
I am 32 years old, male, my height is 5′ 10″, I weigh 90 Kilos and my BMI is 28.4.
A year before I was tested positive for D Type 2.
My father had Type 2 diabetes and the consulting doctor suspected that, I might have acquired D-2 so early through heredity.
He goes on to say:
I have started following the LCHF diet regimen 3 weeks before and I am seeing great results.
I have lost 5 kilos in 3 weeks after I started following LCHF. I was on Zoryl M3 Forte (Glimepiride 3mg Metformin 1g) before breakfast and Voglibose 0.3 once after Lunch and another after dinner, before LCHF.
My morning sugar counts were avg. 140 mg/dL and post-dinner counts were avg. 180 mg/dL before a couple of months although, I was on meds. I know, I am still overweight and need to work out more to reduce extra pounds however, time doesn’t permit to do that due to work pressure and assignments, etc. I walk a Km per day after Lunch and Dinner though.
I am completely off the meds for last 3 weeks, I test my BG 3 times a day and they are as follows
Fasting: avg. 115 mg/dL
Evening: avg. 105 mg/dL
Post Dinner: avg 120 mg/dL
My aim is to bring down BG counts within 100 mg/dL.
BTW, doctors are not Gods and if at all that’s true, I am an Atheist. I wish, if and only if, the doctor I had consulted for Diabetic treatment had advised me to follow LCHF diet from the beginning .
Instead of giving productive advise, doctors tend to stick to age old habit of advising reduce this, reduce that and keep your BG count within 180 mg/dL blah blah blah…
Snippet from his testimonial thread:
Just by following LCHF way of eating, I lost more than 20 Kgs, lost around 4″ from my waist and I could achieve A1c of 5.6. Bonus part – no meds or doctor visits in almost two years.
