Controlling Blood Sugar In Type 2 Diabetes Without The Use Of Drugs

I was told in rapid succession that I was suffering from intermittent claudication (that’s blocked arteries in the legs), high blood pressure, Diabetes Type 2 and that I was overweight.

My high blood pressure, I was assured, could be treated by a cocktail of drugs and by weight loss.The cocktail of four different drugs worked, but I could not seem to lose weight.

The blood sugar levels could be controlled either by drugs or by diet. Since I was already taking four different drugs for blood pressure.

I thought it best to try diet control. I was also hopeful that this might help me to lose weight.

But where to start?

My diabetic nurse provided me with a blood sugar monitor and said I should aim to stay under 9 as my reading. My Doctor said to stay under 7.Now she has reduced this to under 5. My current long-term reading is 5.3. A big drop from the high readings I used to produce.

So what did I do?

At first I was taking blood samples three times a day and was truly astonished at how my blood sugar jumped about.
