Almost every 5th person here in Malaysia turns out to be suffering from Diabetes Mellitus and usually, they suffer from Diabetes Type 2.
I found out about my condition way back in 2007 when I had my blood randomly tested at a herbal treatment centre. The reading was a shocking 26!
The herbal treatment clinic nurse was shocked and said that with such a high reading, I should be warded and treated in a hospital. I then understood why I was constantly thirsty back then?
I first started taking herbal medications at the Phang Oo Lang Herbal Treatment Centre at Kepala Batas and for a while, got some relief and managed to lower my blood sugar level.
But I have to admit, I wasn’t controlling my diet and just ate normal foods and drank sugary drinks. When there was no apparent change in my blood sugar level tests , I decided to go to my local government clinic for a health examination and the medical staff there confirmed my condition to be suffering from a chronic severe case of Diabetes Mellitus Type 2 and a borderline hypertension.
I was then prescribed the relevant medications and when the oral tablets didn’t seem to work, was prescribed insulin. I didn’t bother about changing my dietary habits and still stubbornly consumed food and drinks which contained sugar.
Let’s watch the following video of a Singaporean actor, Alias Kadir who epitomized what I was sharing about earlier:
I suffered a severe case of Carbuncle recently which forced me to go to admit myself at HKL and had a surgery performed to remove the spreading carbuncle. I had no choice but to go on a totally sugar free diet.
I stopped drinking all types of canned drinks and opted to drink lots of boiled water. As a coffee drinker, I still had to have my coffee fix but I chose to drink just the Tesco Gold Coffee and Creamer.
I stopped eating all types of preserved fruits and instead, chose to eat the Pink Lady Apples from New Zealand and Oranges.
I stopped eating Nasi Lemak, Bihun Goreng, Kuih, etcetera and have been eating pure 100% Whole Grain Whole Meal Bread from Gardenia. My preferred brand and it’s Canadian Purple Wheat Whole Meal Bread.
My blood sugar level dropped like never before. To the extent that I even had a 2.5 blood sugar reading which alarmed the staff nurses at HKL when I was admitted for the surgery.
I was forced by the nurse to consume some fruits to raise my blood sugar level to be at least 5 and above.
