I have a "buddy" from Malacca who now live in SJ. He has acute diabetes..
Someone told me drinking lady's fingers juice can lower the blood sugar and I recommended him to try. It works quite ok for him..
He is a retiree. Diabetic medicine is not cheap (even before GST) and his children kind of don't take care of him much. You know vegetable is also not cheap in SJ. I am thinking if the lady's fingers can grow well in my house's backyard, I may occasional bring this vege to him when I travel to Malacca..
