ISKCON Gita is distorted

There must be over a thousand translations of Bhagwad Gita. Each one is biased in some way. But Gita by ISKCON is pretty distorted in interpretation. It not only suggests that God is strictly male, it also mixes up Hindu mythology to confuse ordinary people like me. It just serves followers of Lord Vishnu and declares everyone else is a demi god. That includes Lord Shiva, and Mother Kali as well.

I have read few versions of Gita to understand the ways of God, assuming God is one and addressed by different names. But the ISKCON Gita by Prabhupada is misleading and deliberately confusing. As I have asked before too, who named God?
The polytheism in Hindutva is just to allow you to choose and pray to a form of God that you like most. The images and idols in Hinduism are symbolic. But according to ISKCON, if you are praying to any form of God other than Krsna (Krishna), you are not praying to God.
I don't think I can accept it as it is. It's highly biased and makes me assume ISKC…

How to manage diabetes? Some must know basic tips

Tests and Care for diabetics: How to manage diabetes and control it?

1. Diet is important. Doesn't mean diabetics have to eat grass. Consult a diabetician to create a diet plan. Switch to things that have less sugar content and high fiber content. Like brown rice (if you don't have digestion problems). Wholesale wheat and fiber rich vegetables are good. Pulses are good. Keep something light for "emergency hunger" that diabetics suffer from time to time. It is not just food craving but a signal that glucose levels are extremely low. Something sweet like cake can be considered.

2. Test feet regularly for bruises and ulcers. If any, see a diabetician as soon as possible.

3. Check for Fatty Liver. Happens to both alcoholics and non-alcoholics. Chances of NAFL are higher among women with diabetes.

4. Keep getting kidneys tested regularly.

5. Get eye tests done every six months to check for possible Glaucoma.

6. Check BP regularly to avoid heart issues. Don't smoke.
