Latest update :

Just have my blood glucose tested at my ex-student pharmacy.. very consoling pharmist and very consoling readings too... 4 more to drop...hopefully can achieve it by the end of 2006.

So what have i been having for breakfast for the last few days?

Bitter gourd ( skin, flesh, seeds hempalang blended with half a cup of water ) very filling drink.. dont feel hungry at all after drinking it.,and interestingly after blending it is not as bitter as it is. Bitter gourd has wonderful benefits . It is said to contain the plant insulin.

Diabetes treatment using Bitter GourdAmong the several home remedies that have proved beneficial in controlling diabetes, perhaps the most important is the use of bitter gourd. It has lately been established that bitter gourd contains a hypoglycaemic or insulin-like principle, designated as 'plantinsulin', which has been found valuable in lowering the blood and urine sugar levels. It should, therefore, be included liberally in the diet of the diabetic. For better results, the diabetic should take the juice of about four or five karelas every morning on an empty stomach. The seeds can be added to food in a powdered form. Diabetics can also use bitter gourd in the form of a decoction by boiling the pieces in water or in the form of dry powder

For tea i took this :

yes, cinnamon aka kayu manis . From a stick of it, peel or break a bit, put into the teapot and pour hot boiling water into the teapot and drink as tea. Caution : Don't put too much cinnamon cos the strong aroma might make you giddy after drinking.

Because of the cutting down of starchy food so if hungry in between ,i munch this :

yes, cinnamon again cos cinnamon can lower our blood sugar too despite of the name kayu manis ...Cinnamon spice produces healthier blood
