Usman N. (Columbia) on 08/19/2022: Fenugreek seeds to control and possibly reverse Diabetes
My Health background: I take Metformin 500mg twice a day for Diabetes, I take heart medicine after a Cardiac Arrest due to a choked artery in April 2022, I take ACV for controlling Uric Acid along with anti-inflammation medicine Cholchicine 0.6 mg twice a day. Age 65 yrs old.
Improvement in Diabetes discovered by accident:
Before starting this alternate treatment, my morning fasting sugar reading was 125-130mg/dL for the last 3 1/2 years. Started taking Fenugreek seeds 1 teaspoon soaked in water equivalent to 1 glass of water put in a regular basic clay container/cup/jar for 24 hour (If prefer to keep it for 48 hours before consuming. I found it to be more effective) . This quantity I take just before each meal( that is 3 times a day). I bought my clay container from a Pakistani Halal grocery store here in the USA. The way I consume is to drink the water which will have a golden color. Then chew the seeds and chase it with some regular water. The taste is like eating celery (like raw vegetable with a slight bitter taste).
Diabetes morning fasting 1st week came down to 103mg/dL. 2nd week 95mg/dL.
I am in my 2nd week now. After 2 hours of consuming afternoon meals, it has dropped from a range of 180-200mg/dL to 140-150mg/dL after consuming fenugreek seeds. This is only taking Fenugreek seeds and no medicine (metformin).
By the way, I have added about a pinch of Black seeds in my Fenugreek seeds drink for overall health. I hope this info is helpful.
