Facts And Myths About Diabetes

Is jaggery good for Diabetic patient, Facts & Myths About Diabetes Be Aware, Be Healthy!

MYTH-Jaggery is better or safe in diabetes :

FACT-Jaggery and sugar both are essentially same. Both contain sucrose, as they are prepared from sugar cane juice. Hence eating either of these will increase blood glucose considerably. In jaggery there are some vitamins and a few antioxidants. But both are bad for a diabetic person.
 

MYTH- Eating Sugar or Sweets causes Diabetes :

FACT -It is incorrect to say that eating sweets and / or sugar causes diabetes. Basically excess food intake will lead to excess production of glucose. That puts excess load on insulin producing cells in pancreas due glucotoxicity. Also due to central obesity  the fat around internal organs causes lipotoxicity affecting the beta cells. Therefore, excess food intake in general and weight gain  are the reasons for diabetes.


MYTH- Rice should not be eaten in diabetes :

FACT- Not really true. Because in south India this is the major or at times only main food. Rice has a high glycemic index so gets converted to glucose rapidly. So polished rice is not good. Brown rice is better. Quantity should be regulated. All other cereals  also are converted  glucose after digestion. 

MYTH- Diabetes is curable :

FACT-Diabetes is  mainly due deficiency of Insulin (hormone produced by Beta cells of pancreas), plus resistance to action of insulin, overweightor obesity  and inactivity. Therefore, to treat diabetes we need drugs that initiate insulin secretion, reduce insulin resistance. In some cases  insulin itself. Plus dietary control and regular exercise to maintain normal weight or reduce excess weight. Hence it can only be effectively controlled. Cure is not possible

MYTH-Allopathic Medications Damage Kidneys, so go for either Ayurvedic or Homeopathic Drugs :

FACT-In fact diabetes itself affects kidney, particularly the filtering membrane of glomerulurous  (a filtering unit in the kidney).   Even when diabetes fairly well controlled, kidney does get affected. The drugs used to treat diabetes  help in overcoming kidney damage. Therefore it is wrong to think that modern drugs cause kidney damage.

MYTH-Sugar intake is essential for body :

FACT- Some people keep asking that eating sugar is very necessary for getting energy for the body tissues. This is not at all true.  Because all the cereals like rice, jowar, wheat, ragi, bajra and other millets, contain starch as the main ingredient. Hence intake of each of these foods  provides glucose after digestion. So there is no separate need for taking sugar.

Few things to be remembered and practiced are :

  • Always use whole grain flour, as it contains a good amount of biber content for making chapati or roti.
  • Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads with every meal.
  • Consider fruits and green leafy vegetables as part of regular snacks
  • Take small meals on more number of occasion to avoid glucose surge.
  • Avoid Maida and foods made from it. It is probably worst kind of food that one can consume.
  • Form healthy food habits.

 

Hi, During pregnancy my Thyroid went quite high hence and suggested intake of Thyronorm 50. It has been 1 year since my delivery and in the latest Thyroid test report, it came out to be 10.5, which I believe is just too high. What should I do? Is it risky? I normally prefer taking Homeopath / Ayurved but since Thyroid level is so high, should I firstly control it through an Allopathic treatment? Please suggest. Thanks.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Hypothyroidism that you have developed has to be treated by adequate dosage of Levothyroxine. Since TSH is 10.5 mU/L, it is clear that present dosage is not adequate. When on treatment TSH should be controlled around 3 to 4 mU/AL for being free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism. Madam please understand that hypothyroidism is a thyroxine hormone deficiency disease. This hormone is required for various important metabolic activities of the body every day. Since your thyroid gland is not able to produce it, there is a need to supplement the same from outside daily and that too for lifetime. You may be liking homepathy or ayurveda, but for this condition there is no alternative but to use thyroxine in adequate dosage for LIFETIME. Thanks.

Diabetes is disease of lifestyle. It can't be cured but only controlled. There are lakhs of people who controlled their diabetes without medicines. It can be kept under control for years. But it usually happens only in those who have mild diabetes.
