(1) Reduce weight. Get your BMI below 25.
(2) Start consuming ground flaxseed powder (ground at home)
(3) Go Alkaline. Alkaline water, alkaline diet.
(4) 3l+ water
(5) Consume bitter gourd preparation.
(6) Start taking cinnamon, fenugreek, corriander powder.
(7) Throw all engineered fats and oils out of house.
(8) No black tea, no coffee. Throw these things out of house. Green tea is perfect. I consume 5-7 cups of Tulsi-Green tea (Tulsi is basil leavs and mixed with green tea). basil leaves increase the overall immunity of body.
(9) Make lemon consumption a part of dietary habbit.
(10) Start consuming ginger, onion, garlic.
(11) Have sprouts for breakfast.
(12) Say bye bye to all products from Junk food industry (Pionnered by USA)
(13) Remember water is best beverage

I am not a doctor. Experts may have their own take. I have reduced from a 220 level FBS to 5 HBA1C in 11 weeks with no prescription drugs at all and doing everything that's noted above. Idea is alkalise and body will find it's own way to heal in long term. Avoid as far as possible PILLS as once taken they become a life long "Forced" addiction. I took no PILL and have got things down to random BS : 92 and HbA1C 5 (just back with report today).

My doctor is surprised and he thinks i m taking some PILL :-)
take your own decision. I ust shared what i have been through in 11 weeks after my first horrifying blood test report wrt glucose.

I was hospitalized yesterday for very high bp (avg 190/115), did an ecg and had abnormal t-wave (inverted). They gave me a shot of nitro and iv injected beta blocker...a few hours later, bp returned to normal (128/82 avg). They released me, but I m going for a stress test in the next couple of days. Today my bp was high again this a.m., but is now averaging 90/60 or less, is this a sign of something serious going on, and should I get back to the hospital? I am a calm person, I d just rather be safe than sorry.

In the last few weeks, I have started having like a hot flash in my neck and checks; almost like I m blushing. I suffer with lack of energy, depression and anxiety (grieving loss of spouse of 30 years and mother) but this is a new situation. Currently being treated for high blood pressure with HCTZ in the morning and Norvasc at night. I take vitamin D (5,000 IU) daily along with CoQ10 and Xanax PRN. I m 64 and thought I had gone through menopause already. Could this be the anxiety/depression and if so, what supplement could I take to help. I have no insurance so medical testing is not an option at this time.
