More Interesting People - Diabetes

Post by assassin on Mon Dec 11, 2017 6:55 pm

Today has been a good day due the weather and in a shake up of work I visited a site to do a basic safety check, as the site was locked I rang the contact number and found it was a doctors surgery and medical centre; and that the main medical centre was up and running, and that a doctor was on his way but was delayed due to the weather and the fact he couldn't get to his normal hospital as his 4X4 had been hit and was undriveable and his daughter was picking him up and bringing him to the medical centre to cover for staff who couldn't get to work.

As the doctor arrived and his daughter left, he opened the gates and apologised for the delays and explained that he was a consultant at a hospital and couldn't get to work and had decided to go to the medical centre instead, as he still works there as a GP one day a week; he went further and explained that he went into medicine as he wanted to help people and his next revalation was totally honest, he claimed that he was at odds with the NHS because he still believed in helping people and that the NHS ethos was more a concern about money and finances and not actually helping people.

I said that one of our employeed had been diagnosed with diabetes on Thursday and was awaiting the results of a blood test and the consultant said they would put him on tablets and from what I remember they began with the letter M and that I couldn't remember their name.

Metformin was the doctors response, and I nodded in agreement, and he said that if I saw him I should tell him NOT to take them as they are a depressive tablet which are highly addictive and not as good as they claim to be, and that once you are on them you are on them for life, and that's that.
I asked what he should do instead, he explained that diabetes can be readily controlled and that it is caused by the lack of insulin production according to the experts of which he is one, but this was merely corporate spin as a lack of insulin production can be caused in two main ways and they are the overdosing of sugars such as eating a lot of sugary food or drinking a lot of sugary drinks, and in these cases the body cannot produce enough insulin to counteract the huge volumes of sugars the body is absorbing through food and drink, and the fact that where the body is overwhelmed with sugars it protects itself and stops producing sufficient insulin and this is often compounded by people being overweight and having a lot of fat lodged around their bodily organs or having high blood pressure, and that all these things were inextricibly linked, so I asked what he should or could do.

His answer was very simple, he informed me that he had several options and the first and most important one was diet and he had to change his diet to one in which he significantly reduced his bodily sugar intake and he could do this by cutting out most of the junk food and sugary drinks and that the ready meals which contained noodles were the worst general offenders for food, and sugary drinks such as the common fizzy pops which are heavily marketed were the second. He claimed there were a range of other foods he could eat instead which had proven health benefits and by reducing the unhealthy foods with healthy foods he could reduce his blood sugar levels to at least pre-diabetic stages, of by replacing the unhealthy foods with healthier foods he could reduce his blood sugar back to within the normal ranges.

I asked if this was his field of expertise and he said YES, and that in the majority of cases he WOULDN'T put people on Metformin and gave them dietry options instead, and supplemented this with an exercise regime of at least 15 minutes a day where possible, this wouldn't cure people, but would be a very good start, and that he would recommend a regular blood sugar test with their GP of every 3 months to see how how their sugar levels drop, and this is not a quick fix as it takes time to do.

I asked what were the best foods to eat:

Cut the red meats down slowly over a period of time, but do not cut them out totally.
Salads: lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, green leaf salads such as spinach, water cress, or lettuce mixes are the best but all salad items are good.
Green vegetables: cauliflower, spinach cooked, broccoli, onions such as onions or leeks, cabbage, and any vegetables are good for you.
Fruit: blueberries and raspberries are the best, but oranges and limes are also very good, but that any fruit is good for you.

He went further, he said that where possible you should avoid commercially grown foods and if you can afford it you should eat home grown foods where possible as these aren't laced with chemicals as the food laced with chemicals can cause more harm than good.

He suggested cutting down on bread as both white and brown breads have high levels of sugar and some of the supposed low fat breads should be avoided as they contain more sugars than ordinary bread in many cases.

Using the power of the internet to educate and inform again assassin.

I for one have never heard of Metformin and would never have known better if i became diabetic and they prescribed it to me, so thank you for this information, its very important.

Mitch, he said not, he stated that cutting down slowly is the better option for someone newly diagnosed with diabetes, he suggested making changes slowly to allow the body time to acclimatise to the changes, and the far better option was to introduce healthier foods initially, and cut down on red meats and dairy over time and not all at once.

He did go into the low fat diet option and said the three month regime of a low fat diet works best after someone has significantly lowered their meat and dairy and improved their diet, he said the body needs to become adapt to these changes, at this point the sugar levels are much lower. If and when someone adopts the low fat diet for 3 months after lowering their sugar levels it can trigger or kick start the body into producing more insulin naturally.

Ausk, I have looked at the costs of Metformin and admittadly it was in the American market, the cost of Metformin was under $4 per box, the next cheapest medication was over $12 per box, so commerce and profits again, and for life as it is addictive.
