Hello Payel, You might dont remember I have spoken to you couple of time when I was working in Healthcaremagic. I really feel great to see you here. I am searching a complete diet chart for my father as he is a diabetics patient. His age is 60 and his fasting score is 160 & PP 210 on average ( after taking medicine). I think daily food habit will be the key to control the decease. Can you please give me some expert note what should I do. Thanks in Advance.
