- After 3 months stopped insulin. Stopped all medicines including cholesterol and bp.
- The blood sugar fasting and random stablised between 130 to 160.
- Ha1c score was 6.8 recently
- Gangrene disappeared
3 days back admitted in hospital for getting some tests done as advised by a friend who was diabetes specialist. Every test came normal.
- But in hospital they refused to give sugar.
- In hospital they administered insulin.
- The day after administering insulin my mother’s blood sugar started going beyond 400.
- Insulin and medicines are bad for blood sugar.
- Blood sugar is caused due to excess of sugar consumption or no consumption or very low consumption of sugar.
- In both the cases the sugar does not reach cells.
- In case of excess consumption of sugar, the inflammation process causes the sugar to be excreted from the body. Due to inflammation process the sugar consumed does not reach the cells.
- In long run insulin causes increase in blood sugar.
- Insulin causes the cells to lose sugar. It causes tissues to become weaker.
- Insulin causes low inflammation rates.
- That results in high life expectancy – may be – further tests need to be done on this.
