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.
Common problem in particular with urban population.
If any one experienced these symptoms for more than three months, it is referred to as chronic constipation.
Passing stools less regularly
Stools becoming lumpy or hard
Additional straining when having bowel movements
Experiencing the sensation of a blockage that is preventing bowel movements
The recommended daily dietary fibre intake for adults is 25g for women and 30g for men, through fibre-rich foods, such as vegetables, fruit, cereals and whole grains.
it is recommended that whole foods be consumed, rather than a dietary fibre supplement. Additionally, fibre supplements can sometimes aggravate constipation, especially if you do not increase the amount of water you drink daily.
Did you know water makes up about three-quarters of the faecal content? Or that constipation can occur with a high-fibre diet if not enough water is consumed? To sum up, adequate water intake is important to keep bowel contents soft and easy to pass.
Recommended daily fluid intake
Approximate adequate daily intakes of fluids (including plain water, milk, and other drinks) for women are 2.1 litres (about 8 cups) per day and for men is 2.6 litres (about 10 cups) per day.
Simple measures are to be tried to regularize bowel discipline like
Goos berry=Amla powder 4-5 gm at bed time with warm water
Trimyrebolan=Triphala powder 4-5 gm at bed time with warm water. If these measures are failed then one has to consult Doctor for further investigations and management.
