    hi sanbijay,
    nice topic.
    exercise is always best way for reducing diabetic and cholestrol. doing yoga, meditation and pranayama are also good for health. meditation good for people with high blood pressure as it brings the B.P. to normal.

    another thing is flaxseed;
    Flaxseed Lowers Total and LDL Cholesterol. i had tryglycerides problem and am taking 1tbsp of flaxseed oil everyday. i have low triglycerides now.
    sometimes if i make indian pickles and powders i use flaxoil insted of ghee.

    good questions:). it is best to go and learn for a couple of weeks if there is a teaching center near by. different techniques work for different people. you might have to try more than one. my dh likes vipasana meditation and i tried raja yoga.there are different types of pranayama too. see this link for more info:
    YouTube - Conscious breathing

    i heard baba ramdev's pranayamuseful for good health .
    YouTube - Kapalbhati Pranayam by Swami Ramdev Part 1

    Hi friends,
    Excercise is good for diabetes,B.P and for cholestrol
    [FONT=Verdana,Arial,Helvetica]Why exercise? [/FONT]

    • [FONT=Verdana,Arial,Helvetica]
      [*]Exercise burns calories, which will help you lose weight or maintain a healthy weight.
      [*]Regular exercise can help your body respond to insulin and is known to be effective in managing blood glucose. Exercise can lower blood glucose and possibly reduce the amount of medication you need to treat diabetes, or even eliminate the need for medication.
      [*]Exercise can improve your circulation, especially in your arms and legs, where people with diabetes can have problems.
      [*]Exercise can help reduce your cholesterol and high blood pressure. High cholesterol and high blood pressure can lead to a heart attack or stroke.
      [*]Exercise helps reduce stress, which can raise your glucose level.
      [*]It can lower your risk for heart disease, reduce your cholesterol levels and your blood pressure.
      [*]In some people, exercise combined with a meal plan, can control Type 2 Diabetes without the need for medications.

    Hi friends,
    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica]How to start exercising[/FONT]


    If you're out of shape or have recently been diagnosed as having diabetes, see your doctor before you begin an exercise program. Your doctor can tell you about the kinds of exercise that are good for you depending on how well your diabetes is controlled and any complications or other conditions you may have. Here are some tips for starting:


    • [*]If you're planning to walk or jog, be sure your shoes fit well and are designed for the activity you have in mind. Be alert for blisters. Wear new shoes for a bit each day until they're comfortable and not as likely to cause blisters. Remember, always wear socks.
      [*]Start slowly with a low-impact exercise such as walking, swimming, or biking.
      [*]Build up the time you spend exercising gradually. If you have to, start with five minutes and add a bit of time each day.
      [*]Always wear an ID tag indicating that you have diabetes to insure proper treatment in case there's a problem when you're exercising or you have an injury.
      [*]Avoid lifting very heavy weights as a precaution against sudden high blood pressure.
      [*]If you have foot problems, consider swimming or biking, which is easier on the feet than jogging.
      [*]Stretch for five minutes before and after your workout regardless of how intense you plan to exercise.

    Hi,
    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica]How often should you exercise?[/FONT]


    Try to exercise at the same time every day for the same duration. This will help control your blood sugar. Exercise at least three times a week for about 30 to 45 minutes.

    Hi,
    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica]When is exercise a problem?

    [FONT=Verdana,Arial,Helvetica]If your blood sugar level is over 300 mg/dl, if you are sick, short of breath, have ketones in your urine or are experiencing any tingling, pain or numbness in your legs, don't exercise. Also if your medication is peaking, it's better not to exercise.[/FONT]
