Turmeric seems to have effect on reducing the enzyme xanthine oxidase, there by can reduce gouty attacks and uric acid levels. Similarly taking green tea can induce more urine excretion, which can help in excreting more of uric acid. Thanks.

You should check your fasting sugar once again, along with other reports like Oral Glucose Tolerance test and HbA1C test. You seems to be overweight, so try to loose your weight through regular exercise for 30-45 minutes a day and eat healthy food.

Diabetes Diet

BHMS, CGO
Homeopath, Pune
Diabetes Diet

Diabetes diet for Indians- should have the ratio of 60:20:20 for carbs, fats and proteins. 'Per day calorie intake should be between 1,500-1,800 calories with a proportion of 60:20:20 between carbohydrates, fats and proteins, respectively. 'He adds that a diabetes diet should 'have at least two seasonal fruits and three vegetables in a diet plan.'
Though dry fruits may seem like a healthy snack, it is not a good option for diabetics, as the fructose can spike your sugar level. Go for fresh fruits rather than dry fruits for diabetes control (but there are some restrictions... we'll come to it). But you can still opt for nuts as a healthy snack.

diabetes diet for Indians:
- One teaspoon of methi seeds soaked overnight in 100 ml of water is very effective in controlling diabetes.
- Drink tomato juice with salt and pepper every morning on an empty stomach.
- Intake of 6 almonds (soaked overnight) is also helpful in keeping a check on diabetes.

some major diabetes diet pointers that one should follow at home or at a restaurant.
Whole grains, oats, channa atta, millets and other high fibre foods should be included in the meals . If one feels like consuming pasta or noodles, it should always be accompanied with vegetable/sprouts.
Milk is the right combination of carbohydrates and proteins and helps control blood sugar levels. Two servings of milk in a daily diet is a good option.
Diabetes Control: Diabetic Diet Tips
High fibre vegetables such as peas, beans, broccoli and spinach /leafy vegetables should be included in one's diet. Also, pulses with husk and sprouts are a healthy option and should be part of the diet.
Pulses are important in the diet as their effect on blood glucose is less than that of most other carbohydrate containing foods. Vegetables rich in fibre help lowering down the blood sugar levels and thus are healthy.
Good fats such as Omega-3 and monounsaturated fats (MUFA) should be consumed as they are good for the body. Natural sources for these are canola oil, flax seed oil, fatty fish and nuts. These are also low in cholesterol and are trans fat free.

Fruits high in fibre such as papaya, apple, orange, pear and guava should be consumed. Mangoes, bananas, and grapes contain high sugar; therefore these fruits should be consumed lesser than the others.

Small frequent meals:
A large meal gives rise to higher blood sugar in one's body, therefore it is essential to take small frequent meals to prevent both higher and very low blood sugar values and keep them constant. Small in between snacks can be dhokla, fruit, high fibre cookies, butter milk, yogurt, upma/poha with vegetables etc.
A person with diabetes should follow a diet which is low in carbohydrates, high in fibre and contains adequate amounts of proteins, vitamins and minerals; and avoid fatty foods and sweets . He/she should also take frequent small meals (5 meals pattern).
What not to do:
Artificial sweeteners can be used in cakes and sweets for diabetic people (in moderation).
Have lots of fluid.
Limit intake of alcohol.

Non - Vegetarian

In non-vegetarian diet, seafood and chicken can be taken rather than red meat as red meat contains higher amount of saturated fats. Also, patients with high cholesterol should avoid egg yolk and red meat.
The diabetes diet for Indians includes carbohydrates, proteins and fats. As always, a balanced and planned diet can build and improve personal health. A controlled diabetes diet may seem like a drag and bore, but a good cook can add life to a diet. Time to call up mom and experiment with diabetes diets!

Mr. lybrate-user, Looking at details it is clear that your diabetes is uncontrolled. There is no mention of HbA1c%. Ideally well controlled diabetes should have fasting closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg, HbA1c%<6.8. So it is clear that present treatment is inadequate, needs to be upgraded. Plus looking at your weight and height, you are overweight with a BMI of 28.62 kgs/M2 (normal <23 kgs). Your ideal body weight should be about 57 kgs. Therefore, weight reduction will definitely help in better blood glucose control. As regards back ache, weight reduction and some specific exercises will help in overcoming that. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user By looking at blood glucose levels, it is clear that her diabetes is uncontrolled. There's no mention of HbA1c%, that gives a much better idea of long term control. Her treatment needs to be properly calibrated with glucose levels. We may have to add some additional drug/s. As regards ayurvedic drugs, there's no real benefit. Those drugs at best can be supportive therapy. If you come in a private conversation with all details like current fasting, PP& HbA1c%, dietary habits & extent of daily exercise then I will be able to guide specifically. Thanks.

Hi I can understand that weight gain is a big problem now a day. The main reason behind weight gain is eating more of the processed food, less of exercise and drinking less water. You observe the habit of yours, you will find that these three reasons. Hence to lose weight cutting on processed food, sugary food, drinking 3-4 liter of water daily and exercise for min of 30 min per day is essential. Balanced food is the key to long term weight loss. I can suggest a diet plan and some dietary supplement for quick weight loss. I am suggesting a general diet and supplement for you. You can visit my clinic for free detailed body composition analysis. Sample Diet Plan Breakfast – green Juice. Lunch – vegetable pulao with pineapple fruits. Dinner – paneer with green salad. Snacks – 25g almonds with green tea. Suggested supplement Microfruit tab after breakfast Cytofresh tab after breakfast Lipolyzer tummy tab after lunch Lipolyzer hips and thigh tab after lunch.

Start with 14 units in morning and 10 units in evening 30 before meals, check your sugar yourself daily with gkucometer. Further dose can be adjusted according to blood sugar. If you feel dizzy or drowsy then this dose is too much for you. Decrease two units from this dose then.

My 15 years old son has been diagnosed with hypothyroidism being his tsh is > 100.
Anithaji, If diagnosis is confirmed then treatment also must have been started with thyroxine tablets. With data provided he is having grade 1 obesity with a BMI of 33.33 kg/ M2. Apart from taking thyroxine he will have to exercise regularly to reduce his weight. Once hypothyroidism is under control effort to reduce weight will be successful. The treatment with thyroxine is for life time. Should not be stopped in between.
