Few days back i got a small wound on the thumb of my leg. I thought it would recover by itself after I use some basic medical ointment. But it did not recovered. Just 2 to 3 days ago, I thought to take it to a doctor to get it checked. Then on seeing the wound, the doctor suggested i should go for blood test to check my sugar level. Next day morning before breakfast I went for blood test and the reading came as 102 with normal range of 70-110. Then the doctor advised to go for blood test again after 2 hours of having breakfast and the reading came as 150 with normal range of 90-160. So the sugar level was found to be high in my body and I think I just got checked before actually having diabetes disease. Then my family has started my food restrictions of mainly to have no sugar in my diet like tea without sugar ( it tasted awful when i first drank it, but after 3 to 4 cups, it is ok - i used to drink nearly 5 to 6 cups of tea daily, but now even without sugar still i am drinking tea nearly 5 times in a day - may be it is my addiction to tea), no rice, no potato, no deserts and no sweets - i love to eat sweet things and damn no sweets for me now.
I did some google search on diet recommendation for a diabetic person. i came to know there are 2 kinds of diabetes - type 1 in which no insulin is made in body and type 2 in which insulin is made but it is not sufficient. so i am assuming if i become a diabetic patient, i shall most probably be a type 2 diabetic patient. I am 33 years old currently.
Just wanted to know from you all if you know something what type of food can control diabetes, any particular food item which can control the sugar level in the blood etc. Any information shall be helpful to me. So please suggest. Thanks in advance.
