Reducing Insulin medications - by top dietician in Hyderabad.


Name: TV. Chowdhary

Sex: Male

Age: 79

BMI: In range- 23

Diagnosis: Top dietician in Hyderabad - Deepika Chalasani, prescribed specific blood reports to check the health of his heart, liver and kidneys, (high insulin causes damage to all the 3 organs), along with understanding his dietary history and lifestyle choices.

Issue: The subject had undergone a bypass surgery when he was 58 years old and was subsequently diagnosed with diabetes. Over the years his sugar levels and related medications kept increasing. His HbA1c level was 9.5 and he was taking a staggering 90 units of insulin. Due to his increase in medications and some restrictions, he began to experience panic attacks.

He was told that small meals will reduce his sugar levels and he therefore had small, frequent meals, (approx. 8-9 meals a day). Instead of sugar levels reducing, his sugar levels increased to alarming levels. Top dietician in Hyderabad – Deepika Chalasani, discovered that his meals were majorly carbohydrate centric in the first half of the day and protein centric later in the day. He was consuming sufficient protein, but the quality and timing of the protein were inappropriate. He constantly felt hungry as he was on a high dose of insulin and was consuming hunger generating foods. His grain-based diet (which he thought was healthy), caused his insulin levels to spike, thereby increasing his sugar levels and requiring excessive medication.

Treatment: Top dietician in Hyderabad – Deepika Chalasani’s treatment included less insulin generating foods. Lentin (dals - grain-based protein) were replaced with more efficient protein like fish, lean meat, eggs etc. To reduce sugar spikes, fruit along with hung curd and seeds were prescribed for the evening. Number of meals were reduced to 4, so that the body could recycle fat and thereby reduce his insulin resistance.

Results: Within the first 3 days, Top dietician in Hyderabad – Deepika Chalasani eliminated 45 units of fast acting insulin and within 2 weeks his total insulin reduced to 25 units. Within 2 months his insulin was down to 15 units and his HbA1C dropped down to 8. He felt more energetic and equally important was that he was also able to enjoy his mangoes during the last season. With a fair number if indulgences, during his recent one-week trip to his home town, his fasting sugar still remained at 120 and his post prandial at 180.
