I am suffering with sugar, can you please tell me that what are special ways I have to follow.
Follow instructions of dietician regarding diabetic diet. Have scheduled physical examinations and blood tests to maintain fair control of blood sugar and early detection of any complications by specialist physician/diabetologist. Take medicines honestly, prescribed assuming you have to enjoy your life happily with diabetes.

I have blood sugar 130-170. Of late I have developed rashes in the body from scratching. In my thigh the spread is bigger. If it is due to sugar how many sugar patients get it. Remedy and reason please. Also my knee pains while climbing.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take.

I am diabetic can I use soya crunches in my daily life. If use after workout its or bad.
Mr. lybrate-user, If your day's caloric intake is within the requirement of total calories based on weight, height and extent of workout, then there is no problem at all. As soy crunches give a good variety of proteins and probably least carbs. But it is equally important to keep blood glucose level in strict control with fasting closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. Thanks.

For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

I am diabetic since 17 years and hyper tensive since 11 yrs, using GLIMULIN MF FORTE in the morning, JANUMET 50/1000 in the afternoon, GLIMULIN MF in the night. CONCOR AM 5 mg in the morning, TELMA 40 in the evening, GABAPIN NT 400 twice daily, ECOSPRIN AV 75 in the afternoon. But since last 3 months I have been facing episodes of severe gas trouble with bloating but no pain in the stomach. For this the doctor had suggested RIFAGUT 550 mg twice daily for 5 days, then after the recurrence in 1 month he again prescribed RIFAGUT 550 mg for another 5 days along with VSL-3 once daily for 10 days after lunch, again there was an episode after 15 days FLUDAC 10 mg capsule was asked to be taken at the night. Now I had taken it for 4 days and yet yesterday night the same problem reoccurred. I have observed that in all these episodes there is one thing common in my diet which is watermelon. I doubt that it's high fructose level is the culprit. After eating the gas trouble starts with in 3 hrs and the gas doesn't stop for another 3 hrs, during this I have to continuously force out the gas through mouth or else my stomach and chest keeps ballooning out and a false feeling of heart trouble is being felt by me due to which we had to undergo ECG which was normal. After browsing in the Internet I doubt that I am having fructose intolerance please suggest.

Watermelon is known to cause gas. Pl. Have it in the morning or noon when there is some physical activity. Also sprinkle some black pepper power& some roasted cumin seed powder so that it does not cause gas.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you are right, when a person is having diabetes, his chances of getting a heart related problem increase exponentially. This becausediabetes affects coronary arteries and a lot of silent heart attacks are reported in diabetes patients.

Mr. Lybrate-user, first and fore most is to achieve a strict blood sugar control. Fasting closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. If this is achieved all long term complications of diabetes can be prevented or postponed. Otherwise, if blood sugar is not well controlled every important organ of the body is affected by persistent hyperglycemia. Thanks for the question.

Hi I am 28 years old and I am suffering with thyroid can i eat chapati at night I have heard wheat contains gluten which needs to be avoided by thyroid patients please suggest me proper diet.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, Thanks for your query. Gluten in wheat and many other grains (cereals) can affect certain persons who are allergic to it. Otherwise it does not affect much. You will have to maintain TSH level around 3 to 4 mU. L, to be free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism. Foods that should be avoided include soy beans and soy containing products. Thanks.

I am Surfing From Diabetes since 2011. In 2011 I am surfing from dengue fever pl z suggest me how control it.
Mr. lybrate-user, Dengue is a self limiting viral fever. It is problematic only when there may be internal bleeding resulting from platelet reduction. That episode has nothing to do with diabetes. Diabetes needs to be treated properly with suitable drugs either oral anti diabetes ones or Insulin injections or both. Treatment depends on the blood glucose levels. If disease in control then FBS should be closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. If one does not maintain proper control, then there can be long term complications associated with multiple systems. If you are looking for specific treatment advice, please come in a private conversation with details like FB, PP glucose levels, HbA1c%, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise being done. Then I will be able to give specific advice. Thanks.

Hi lybrate user. You can take thyroidinum which is a homoeopathic medicine for thyroid. But to cure it you should consult a homoeopathic doctor.
