Default Re: Are you diabetic?

Greetings people,
I just came across this thread and was surprised to see it on an Automobile community. This thread definitely shows good gesture of this community not restricting it to machinery mechanics but also to human mechanics.

I have no or very little knowledge with diabetes but know a bit of it because my dear mother had it since last 4 years. Her PP was beyond 380, but now I am very glad to say that it is almost come down and is constant to 110 – 130 since almost a month. This happened through a diet regime which is hard to follow for few days but becomes habit soon.
She had undergone a course of naturopathy with one of the renowned doctors or group in Pune and I am also a part of whats app group who have been through this program. A group of 28 members have shown tremendous improvement and almost everyone are clear of diabetes and some are free from insulin’s.
This program was for 7 days and costs 28k. These doctors have various packages as well.

I am not marketing it or endorsing it but thought if this can be helpful to someone in need. I am not sure if I can post it here as per rules but can provide you details if needed.

Regards,

One common myth that even some of the uninformed doctors perpetrate is that if your HBA1C results are high then you're surely diabetic.

This is, however, false because the truest test of diabetes is the 3 step blood glucose test where the first test is the fasting sugar, then one test one hour after taking glucose (about 100gm), then one more test one hour after the second test in which the blood glucose level should normally return towards fasting level.

As for HBA1C, there are plenty of reasons for it to go high.

So please do check your fasting and PP blood glucose before drawing any definite conclusions.

SECTIONS

Type 2 Diabetes ADA Diagnosis Criteria

The*American Diabetes Association*(ADA) criteria for the diagnosis of*diabetes*are any of the following:*[1]

A hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) level of 6.5% or higher; the test should be performed in a laboratory using a method that is certified by the National Glycohemoglobin Standardization Program (NGSP) and standardized or traceable to the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT) reference assay,or

A fasting plasma glucose (FPG) level of 126 mg/dL (7 mmol/L) or higher; fasting is defined as no caloric intake for at least 8 hours,*or

A 2-hour plasma glucose level of 200 mg/dL (11.1 mmol/L) or higher during a 75-g oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT),*or

A random plasma glucose of 200 mg/dL (11.1 mmol/L) or higher in a patient with classic symptoms of hyperglycemia (ie, polyuria, polydipsia, polyphagia, weight loss) or hyperglycemic crisis
But HbA1C should be done by only HPLC method

I disagree. Without a strict diet regime/exercise this is not possible. I know a guy who tried everything for 6 years with optimum efforts ended with Insulin intake. Yes Yoga may help only if you encounter this system disorder with strict plan and upside down change in your lifestyle else no use.

Very well said ECM 😇. I second your thought, and I have mentioned same in reply to this thread #121 that diabeties is treatable, I have literraly met almost 25 diabetic people who have positive results with strict diet regime and excercise. It just needs proper guidance and we have well guided and tested doctor in Pune 👍.

Sorry to say but your information isn't correct. Latest ADA guidelines have laid out the criteria for diagnosing diabetes as any 1 of the following:-
1. HbA1c more than 6.5%
2. FBS more than 126
3. Glucose more than 200, 2 hours after 75g GTT
4. RBS more than 200 in a symptomatic patient.

HbA1c is an index of the blood glucose levels of the last 90 days, and is surely as important as fasting glucose levels. Agreed that there are causes for HbA1c rise without diabetes, but in medicine there is never a 100% accurate test. Every investigation has a senstivity and specificity which decides what investigation to use.

Copied from whats app forwarded message.

*Chappaties will soon become EXTINCT*


A renowned cardiologist explains how eliminating wheat can IMPROVE your health.

Cardiologist William Davis, MD, started his career repairing damaged hearts through angioplasty and bypass surgeries.

“That’s what I was trained to do, and at first, that’s what I wanted to do,” he explains. But when his own mother died of a heart attack in 1995, despite receiving the best cardiac care, he was forced to face nagging concerns about his profession.

"I’d fix a patient’s heart, only to see him come back with the same problems. It was just a band-aid, with no effort to identify the *cause* of the disease.”

So he moved his practice toward highly uncharted medical territory
– prevention – and spent the next 15 years examining the causes of heart disease in his patients.

The resulting discoveries are revealed in
"Wheat Belly", his New York Times best-selling book, which attributes many of our physical problems, including heart disease, diabetes and obesity, to our consumption of wheat.
Eliminating wheat can “transform our lives.”

*What is a “Wheat Belly”?*
Wheat raises your blood sugar dramatically. In fact, two slices of wheat bread raise your blood sugar more than a Snickers bar.

"When my patients give up wheat, weight loss was substantial, especially from the abdomen. People can lose several inches in the first month."
You make connections between wheat and a host of other health problems.

Eighty percent of my patients had diabetes or pre-diabetes.

I knew that wheat spiked blood sugar more than almost anything else, so I said, “Let’s remove wheat from your diet and see what happens to your blood sugar.” They’d come back 3 to 6 months later, and their blood sugar would be dramatically reduced.
But they also had all these other reactions:
“I removed wheat and I lost 38 pounds.” Or, “my asthma got so much better, I threw away two of my inhalers.”
Or “the migraine headaches I’ve had every day for 20 years stopped within three days.” “My acid reflux is now gone.”
“My IBS is better, my ulcerative colitis, my rheumatoid arthritis, my mood, my sleep . . .” and so on, and so on".

When you look at the makeup of wheat, Amylopectin A, a chemical unique to wheat, is an incredible trigger of small LDL particles in the blood – the number one cause of heart disease.

When wheat is removed from the diet, these small LDL levels plummet by 80 and 90 percent.

Wheat contains high levels of Gliadin, a protein that actually stimulates appetite. Eating wheat increases the average person’s calorie intake by 400 calories a day.

Gliadin also has opiate-like properties which makes it "addictive".
Food scientists have known this for almost 20 years.

Is eating a wheat-free diet the same as a gluten-free diet?
Gluten is just one component of wheat.
If we took the gluten out of it, wheat will still be bad since it will still have the Gliadin and the Amylopectin A, as well as several other undesirable components.

Gluten-free products are made with 4 basic ingredients: corn starch, rice starch, tapioca starch or potato starch.
And those 4 dried, powdered starches are some of the foods that raise blood sugar even higher.

I encourage people to return to REAL food:
Fruits
Vegetables
and nuts and seeds, Unpasteurized cheese ,
Eggs and meats

Wheat really changed in the 70s and 80s due to a series of techniques used to increase yield, including hybridization. It was bred to be shorter and sturdier and also to have more Gliadin, (a potent appetite stimulant)

The wheat we eat today is not the wheat that was eaten 100 years ago.

If you stop eating breads/pasta/chapatis every day, and start eating rice with chicken and vegetables, you still lose weight because rice doesn’t raise blood sugar as high as wheat, and it also doesn’t have the aAmylopectin A or the Gliadin that stimulates appetite. You won’t have the same increase in calorie intake that wheat causes.
That’s part of the reason why foreign cultures that don’t consume wheat tend to be slenderer and healthier.

Everyone should stop eating wheat. This is the closest I know of to something that will transform your life."
