I have Harry Potter to cure diabetes!!!

It’s been a while and where do I stand with my sugar levels? I have Harry Potter as my new doctor. Yes, my new doctor is magical. I’m going to go off all kinds of medicines by the end of this year. Even better, he doesn’t call me fat, believe I can heal more than I do and is an ayurvedic specialist. How I found this doctor? My uncle is on insulin. He used to take (15units morning + 15units night) 30 units of insulin in  a day before he went to Harry Potter. After a few months of ayurvedic medication, my uncle now takes only 20units a day. You can imagine how thrilled I was. But of course, as always, just his medicines won’t work magic. Deadly diet and  exercise was also prescribed to me. 4kms in 40mins walking twice a day was the exercise prescribed to me. You see I’m more awesome than the doctor knows so I started running instead but only 4kms in a day. Ran like that for about 3 months. My levels came down. My Hba1c – 3 month blood sugar average test was normal. My average blood sugar level was 150. I was doing great. It was an exhilarating experience to know see those numbers and for the first time believe for yourself that a cure is truly possible.

And then December happened in my life. It was time for a vacation. I was off to Sri Lanka and off exercise and diet too. Of course, there was January that landed after December. I needed time to get readjusted to a new routine. I shifted homes and then adjusting to that and then finding a new place to run around my new home, it was a lot of work. Basically, health took a back seat. It is always like that isn’t it? Everything else apart from health becomes so much more important – that new assignment I have to finish writing, another movie to watch, but my school friend is coming into town to visit, I will drink some beer only tonight. Imagine, I’m so close being off medicines and here I have been procrastinating and putting my health last on the list for two months. I did not go to the doctor for replenishing my medicines after November. It has been 3 months now. I’m just plain scared to go back to him because he is going to be upset that I have not gone to see him to get myself tested. The same fear kept me from sharing on this blog about what I have been doing right and wrong. There was nothing really wrong about anything I did. There was only fear that led t0 my inability to put my health before everything else in my life no matter what happens. I’m glad that it hit me at some point by mid-Jan and I started running again. I also did join the gym and started exercising more. But I know I have fallen back. That’s alright. I’m back to catching up again. Back to my diet and my exercises. I’m bent on getting off those medicines end of this year come what may.

I also realised that it is not just me but a lot of people around me put their health, sleep, body, nutrition, rest, exercise behind, calling everything else more important. Only difference I see is that I have been forced to see the signs of how my body reacts because of this condition of fluctuating sugar levels. Soon they will also be forced to see the same signs like the way I do if they don’t take enough preventive measures as a reaction to their lifestyle right now. It is sad to know that as I get off medicines this year, there might be getting into medicines due to pure negligence and ignorance. But hope always prevails.
