Friends, I am a diabetic patient. My sugar level is 470. I am happily leading a normal life at the age of 62. I did my last sugar test about 3 months back when I found above sugar level in my blood. When I found the sugar level in my blood is high I decided to bring it to normal. I am just writing to you know the fact how I get my sugar down, nothing less. I immediately bought a cycle snd started 10 KM in the morning. Within a weeks time found I started feeling better now after 3 months I am fully normal. You can also do the same thing without spending for doctor and medicines. It is only a suggestion. Thanks

It is good that you started to do cycling. That will bring your sugar down . It has to be coupled with control in diet of course. My husband is diabeteic and at the level for 200 and not going down his doctor has advised him to have insulin shots. May I recommend you to have your blood sugar checked more frequenty frequently and of course see a doctor to avoid complications.

Hi You have to do regular exercise to control diabetes. In addition to this take food which will not increase the sugar levels in blood. If you can keep the sugar levels between 100- 150 with regular exercise then it's OK. otherwise you have to take some medicines and have some medical advice. I think you have to do the medical checkups and seek the advice of a doctor and make sure that your body organs like kidneys, lungs, heart, liver etc are in good condition since you had the very high sugar levels for a long period.

Dear padmameera, Thank you for your comments. I do regular medical check up. The fact is while taking medicines and doing exercise I was unable to control my sugar. After one week of cycling, my sugar level started reducing. I started feel more comfortable and healthy.

hi navtech, its really surprising to know that with mere exercise u have been able to reduce ur sugar levels within so less period of time n i m happy for u. but i wud also like to tell u from myside that its better that u consult ur doctor n start taking some medications or some improtant advice from him. diabetes is not a simple disease, wen a person gets it, it brings along with it many other complications like diabetic retinopathy, diabetic nephropathy, and neuropathy. also it can lead to cardiac arrest which is a silent one. definitely with regular exercise and right type of food will help u to keep ur sugar in normal level, but if the pancreas do not function properly and proper amount of insulin is not produced by them then it can lead to some serious problem. so as a friend i wud suggets u that u better consult ur doctor. i m sure he will definitely help u in this matter. tk care

I'm treadmilling and doing martial arts because they say it's better to prevent that to cure. My bloodline has diabetes so I ought to sweat it out everyday.

Wowow... congratulations. That's good news and good inspiration for many. Were there any diet change? I bet you continue with the 10 km cycling every morning?
