  • Heyy I would like to tell you one thing that if you are planning for a baby then do not worry about anything . However keep your diet healthy and regular exercise regime. If you see the research datatype 1 diabetes then 10% chances if father has and if mother has and mother is over 25 years then 25 %. But please do not think all these . All these are just data be happy and focus on good diet plan , in fact one of my acquaintances is on the path of reversing his diabetes with the help of ayurveda and strict diet regime . His medicine has reduced a lot.

    Diabetes is also a lifestyle disease so please go tension free and plan the baby. I know a mother who's kids do not have inspite both the parents have. so don't worry.

    You can use foxtail millet in for breakfast. Its specifically good for diabetes. You can eat it with rasam/sambar like substitute for rice. Additionally you can make upma, idly, salad, dosa, kheer etc with it. It is cooked like 1 bowl of millet 2 bowls of water with 3 whistles in the cooker. It cooks faster than rice. We use it on a regular basis.
