(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.

Dr. Oz, I know you're show is geared mostly towards women but I really am in dyer need of help. I'm a 22 year old male and I'm currently taking two 20mg instant release Adderalls a day. My blood pressure is normal on a daily basis, but high blood pressure and heart disease does run in my family. My concern is in regards to Erectile Disfunction. It is a real self confidence killer! My penis doesn't get fully erect when I'm about to have sex, its hard but not where it can stay up the air hard..excuse the reference. Also some other times it will get hard, but it will not stay that way for long amounts of time. Does anyone know why this could be? I also have trouble staying hard. For example if it slips out, there is a switch of positions,or the slightest distraction, it wont remain hard. I take adderall but don't notice a difference in this when I take it and when I don't. I exercise regularly (4-5x a week) and eat relatively healthy(for a college student). I am stressed a lot and i know that could be a cause of my problems. but does anyone have any ideas? Also is it to early for someone my age (22) to take pills such as viagra or cialis? What are the long term side effects?
