Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum
yes. yoga and acupressure/puncture can help you great deal fighting sugar problems.. whatever yoga you practice should be less than 30 minutes a day. best is kapalbhanti pranayam 2 minutes a day. acupressure is better than acupuncture. please practice yoga after consulting a yog teacher to avoid post surgery knee problems. do not practice yoga byself, or readaing on net or books. because practical experience of treating patients is always imp.
your diabetes is more than 30 yrs, so with the help of alternative medicines you can control and prevent its late age complications which in turn not possible with any other pathy. so i appreciate your idea of taking other aids.
I hope I answered your query. Wish you good health.
