Dear Sudhakar,

You can also take in herbs to help you bring the blood sugar content down. Just go through this sites:

Hello Sudhakar ji,

Standard treatment for people with diabetes consists of careful meal planning, a regular exercise program, monitoring blood sugar levels and, when necessary, taking medications. By actively managing their disease and keeping blood sugar levels as close to normal as possible, people with diabetes not only feel better, they also help prevent the long-term complications, such as vision loss, heart attack, stroke, and kidney and nerve damage, that commonly develop when blood sugar levels are regularly too high.

Since there is no cure for diabetes, maintaining good health requires a lifelong commitment to blood sugar control--on-again, off-again efforts are not effective. The self-care requirements of diabetes, or any chronic disease, can be psychologically difficult to adjust to, and resisting the need to follow a regular, day-in and day-out, care plan is a common reaction. The result is that some people seek alternative treatments, if not outright "miracle cures," that seem easier or more "natural" and that allow them to avoid dealing with the realities of a chronic disease.

A so-called diabetes remedy that is gaining popularity today is herbal treatment, with a variety of plant-derived preparations being promoted as capable of controlling blood sugar levels. In fact, herbal treatment for diabetes is not new. Plants and plant extracts were used to combat the disease as early as 1550 B.C., with as many as 400 "prescribed" before the development earlier this century of effective medications to control diabetes. However, claims for the benefits of herbal treatments should be viewed with caution for several reasons.

Keep in mind that few of the herbs that reportedly lower blood sugar have been adequately studied to determine their actual effects. Although some of those that have been studied, often in animals rather than humans, do show a slight ability to lower blood sugar, their effects are not strong or predictable enough to adequately manage diabetes.

People who decide to try herbs may find they feel better, and therefore assume their diabetes is under control. Unfortunately, this is likely to be an illusion created by some preparations that produce a feeling of well-being without controlling excess sugar in the blood.

A lot of progress in treating diabetes has been made since the time when nothing more effective than herbs was available. People with the disease do best when they work closely with their physician to be sure they gain the benefits of this knowledge.

What you need is to have strict diet regime considering the calorie intake. insted of eating at long intervals taking food 3 times daily) take food in between. Try to take the meal at fixed time. include lot of fresh raw vegetables in your food. avoid ripe bananas. and mangoes totally.best fruit for you is guava.

Always keep some candies or sugar with you , or at your hand reach because patients taking medicine for diabets tends to have episodes of hypoglycaemia - low blood glucose level. This is quite dangerous than hyperglycaemia.

Do some exercise regularly. like Walking- daily half an hour- brisk walk. give extra care to your feet and try to wear comfrotable slippers. dont forget to check the sugar level . Dr.sindu

There are herbs, supplements, foods, and spices which can help regulate blood sugar and provide an antidote to diabetes. None, however, are a substitute for general lifestyle modifications (exercise and diet).

These include:

Cinnamon, which has been demonstrated to lower blood sugar

Bitter melon

Fenugreek

Prickly Pear

Gymnema sylvestre leaf extract

Magnesium

Chromium

Here are few herbs that can help curing diabetes:

Fenugreek is said to be the best herb for lowering the bllod sugar. You can use fenugreek seeds and fenugreek leaves.

Onion and garlic have significant blood sugar lowering action. The principal active ingredients are believed to be allyl propyl disulphide (APDS) and diallyl disulphide oxide (allicin), although other constitutents such as flavonoids may play a role as well.

Bitter melon, also known as balsam pear, is a tropical vegetable widely cultivated in Asia, Africa and South America, and has been used extensively in folk medicine as a remedy for diabetes. The blood sugar lowering action of the fresh juice or extract of the unripe fruit has been clearly established in both experimental and clinical studies.

Drinking karela juice in the morning would help lowering blood sugar.You may want to add neem leaf juice also with this. Fenugreek ( soaked in curds at night) and eaten in the morning, also helps. Methi leaf can also be cooked and eaten regularly. You can safely eat blueberry (jamun) and papaya or papita. Including karela/bittergourd in any form such as sabji/curry,chips, would be good.

Avoid sugared fruits- apple, pineapple or vegetables such as beetroot, sweet potato.

Pterocarpus marsupium (Indian Kino, Malabar Kino, Pitasara, Venga),Bitter Melon (Momordica charantia),Gymnema Sylvestre (Gurmar, Meshasringi, Cherukurinja),Onion and Garlic ( Allium cepa and Allium sativum),Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum) ,Blueberry leaves (Vaccinium myrtillus) ,Asian Ginseng,Bilberry,Stevia,Ginkgo Biloba,Cinnamon , Barberry, Herbal Combinations For all pancreatic problems: 1 part uva ursi 1 part goldenseal 1 part elecampane 2 parts dandelion root 2 parts cedar berries 1 part fennel part ginger

Mix the powdered herbs and put them in #00 capsules. Take them after every meal. Refer to this site for more remedies: http://holisticonline.com/remedies/…

Above all try to exercise regularly and maintain a positive approach.

Sudhakar,

Recently a proposal has been made which seems worth trying.

Before I give you the remedy, let me give you a warning- When taking this remedy, do not stop your regular medication that you take for diabetics. Also, this remedy must be tried for one month and the blood tests must be run before the second month is attempted.

Leaf- Bilva Pattra or Bilpatra.this is a leaf usually used to perform Archana for Lord Shiva.

Soak 10 leaves in water overnight. Grind the leaves in a mixie and extract the juice. Mix this juice in water and drink it on an empty stomach in the morning.

I know of a preparation made from herbs for treating diabetes.I have used it and found it quite effective. When diabetes was detected, I did not take any medicine except this preparation. I controlled my diet and started morning walk. I also started pranayama. It helped me a lot.

I am writing the formula here. As the herbs' names are in Hindi you may have to consult some Hindi knowing person to understand it.

Neem ki nimouli 100 g, Methi 200 g, Leaves of gurmaal 150 amun ki guthli 100 g, Kalonji 100 g, black jeera 100 g, Black salt 100 g. Clean the herbs and dry them. Then grind them in the form of powder. Take one sppon with water 2-3 times day.

Dear Sudhakar, Jammun, karela juice are considered to be very beneficial in DM. But if you are already on insulin. It is the best option, DM more than a disease its a way of life that you need to adapt. Goodluck
