    I bet a lot of Indians engineers I see here with their bulging guts already have diabetes but either don't realize it or don't care or both.

      A lot of the Indian diets I see here are very heavy in rice and breads. If one is pre disposed this will definitely amplify the likelihood of becoming diabetic.

      Most Indians I know are fairly skinny and vegetarians. I am vegan btw, just wanted to let you guys know about that too.

      The awareness part first starts with convincing people that rice and roti are heavy in glycemic index...understanding that carbs are converted into glucose in your body. A common answer will be that they think it’s good for you to eat that stuff and is ok. So yea a lot of education here is needed.

      As low carb dieting has become more popular I think the message is starting to get out more.

      Another thing I’ve observed is that some folks blatantly don’t care. Nothing can be done there.

    If you are pre-diabetic, seriously consider going on a low carb/keto diet. My A1C went from a pre-diabetic 6.1 to a non-diabetic 5.3 in 4 months of good eating. Doctor was amazed and said to keep on doing what I’m doing. Also lost 40 lbs.

    I ate donuts for last three weeks every day. Almost a dozen each day. Would I have diabetes?

      You may not get diabetes right now but keep it up and you will. I’m sure your blood sugar is plenty elevated but to start damaging your body

      Stop eating foods that spike your sugar. Eat foods with a low glycemic index.

      I can help you avoid diabetes. You just have to share some donuts with me.

    There was this experiment done to test glucose sensitivity in relation to sleep. Guy named Matthew Walker, he’s a neuroscience professor and sleep expert at Berkeley. The experiment showed that body tissue biopsied from someone who is on 5 hrs sleep the night before is only 50% as insulin sensitive as someone who slept for 8 hours. So if you need motivation to sleep more, this makes a drastic difference.
