Managing diabetes through a holistic approach to good health
Ramdeyol Ramdhar was a heavy-duty mechanic and later a successful marine engineer, but he is also diabetic and now limits himself to tending his garden and his poultry.
The still vibrant 62-year-old, reflecting on the 14 years that he has been living with the illness, said though his life has changed drastically, he refuses to be controlled by the disease. “I’m not shorting myself of anything. If I want to have a little something to eat, like chicken with the skin or my lil duck and maybe to have a little drink, I do it for one day and after that I go back to my normal routine,” he said, adding that he is fully capable of getting his blood sugar back to a normal level.
