Hi. I'm a diabetics patients. And i'm 45 yrs old. So please suggest me what to eat nd what to not to maintain my sugar level. I'll be waiting for your rpy.

The moment we get diagnosed with diabetes, our minds cringe in fear by the thought of all the restraint on our life, especially diet, which would be imposed on us for a lifetime, taking away the joy from celebrations and fun eat out sessions etc. Diet management is of utmost importance in diabetes not only to control blood sugar levels but also to keep other risks such as body weight and heart risk factors at bay. People with HbA1c levels mild to moderately elevated (<7.5%) at diagnosis, may be advised to take a diet and lifestyle modification trial before they are put on any drugs and some of these people will be able to control their diabetes/pre-diabetes for a significant amount of time without drugs. Even for people on drugs or insulin diet and lifestyle management is equally important. But, the evidence based medical advice, on diet for diabetics, is not that restrictive and allows a lot of room for having fun with food! All the expert agencies on diabetes in the world, such as ADA, AACE, IDF and our own ICMR, have published guidelines on managing your diet in diabetes, which we at FWI analyzed to formulate our advice for diabetics, which you will find below: The three most important considerations in diet management in diabetic people are: Managing the carbohydrate intake to control blood sugar Managing the overall calorie intake to lose weight or to maintain a healthy weight Keeping the intake bad fats and salt in check to reduce the risk of CVD 1. Managing the carbohydrate intake to control blood sugar Diabetes is a primarily a disease of insulin resistance or insulin deficiency, in which the physiological action of insulin, that of helping in uptake of blood glucose by body cells and thereby keeping the blood sugar levels in control, is less than adequate. All dietary carbohydrates are broken down by our digestive system into glucose, which then is added to the blood. Therefore, the most important consideration to prevent or delay complications of diabetes is keeping the blood sugar levels in control Diabetics have to know their carb containing food very well and monitor their carb intake on regular basis, but they are not required to give up totally on sugar, rice or sweets, contrary to what is the general notion! Same amount of carbs whether as whole grains or table sugar, will raise the Post Prandial (two hours post meal) blood sugar to nearly the same level, so substituting regular roti with say a laddoo, once in a while is OK, provided you make sure that laddoo gives the same amount of carbs as the rotis you have given up and your overall calorie intake in the meal is constant as well. This you can manage by portion size control and carb counting But having laddoos instead of roti regularly is not a good idea because good sources of carbohydrates such as whole grains have proteins, dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals in addition, whereas bad sources such as table sugar or laddoo will not have these and will give you empty calories. Also, these sweets will be more calorie-dense (1 tablespoon sugar gives 60 calories whereas one roti gives nearly 80 calories) and will not be very filling! So, if you want to have simple sugar or sweets occasionally, make sure that you replace the healthy carbs with these sweets, such that same amount of calories and carbs are provided by them and don’t just add sweets to your regular meal Remember, quantity control and moderation are absolutely imperative! 2. Managing the overall calorie intake to lose or maintain a healthy weight Losing excess body weight helps in patients with diabetes in several ways. Besides this will help you in controlling your risk of heart diseases and a host of other diseases at the same time! In diabetes, even losing 3-5% of your existing body weight will result in better blood sugar levels, but losing up to 10% results in better blood lipid profile and reduced risk of heart disease To know more, go to ‘weight loss for diabetics’ and read your way into fitness! 3. Keeping the intake of ‘bad’ fats and salt in check to reduce the risk of CVD The complications of CVD, include heart attack, stroke (brain attack), foot gangrene etc. All complications of CVD, which is the biggest cause of death in diabetics Therefore, dietary modifications to manage risk factors for CVD are very important in diabetics. These modifications include controlling the intake of salt and ‘bad’ fats in your diet, and the recommended levels of intake are lower than those in general population Diabetics in general are often advised even by their doctors and dieticians, some times, to consume ‘low fat’ diet to manage their heart risk. But In India, where average intake of carbs is much higher than recommended intake of fat, for most people, such an advice is not only erroneous, it is harmful! (Read: Indian diet: ‘pro’s and ‘con’s, to know more) Instead what is needed is to replace the ‘bad’ fats, present in high quantities in vanaspati (found in snack items and restaurant/ fast food meals etc.), full cream milk, butter, ghee and red meat (but not mutton: read more), with vegetable oils (such as olive, canola, rice bran etc. But not coconut and palm oil)

Fiber should be at least 1.4 oz / day instead of 3 heavy meals, we should go for 4-5 small mid intervals replace bakery products and fast foods by simple whole cooked cereals, and don't eat carbohydrates 2 hours before bedtime consume fresh fruit and vegetables at least 5 exchange/ day.

Hello, Eat a minimum of 3-4 cups of fresh vegetables daily. Cut out sugar from your diet completely. This means saying good bye to soft drinks, chocolates, ice-creams, jams, sauces and sugar-laden pastries. Eat whole-wheat bread instead of white read. Cutting out white bread means cutting out everything made from white flour. Be it pizza, pasta, pastries or naan. Make whole wheat bread, chapattis and brown rice a way of life. Snack on whole wheat crackers or bran biscuits instead of biscuits made from refined flour. Eat at least three meals a day. Do not skip a meal. Switch to soya milk instead of whole milk. Drink plenty of water as it eliminates the toxins and keep the system clear. If you are a non-vegetarian, eat a lot of fish. Limit your fat intake to 2-3 teaspoon a day. Eat 2-3 fruits a day. Avoid cruciferous vegetable.

Mr. Lybrate-user, uncontrolled diabetes, does affect various organs and a number of functions in our body. Peripheral neuropathy is one of those complications of diabetes. This leads to pain and burning sensation in feet as well as burning sensation. The drug pragabalin is quite effective for reducing the pain. But prime need is strict blood sugar control - fasting closer to 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg, hba1c%<7. If this is not achieved other drugs may not show much benefit. So see tha blood sugar levels are controlled better.

I have a question about my diabetes. I am suffering from hypertension since 6 years & Diabetes from 2.5 years and take tablets for both diseases in morning. For diabetes I take glimepiride 2 mg + Metformin 500 mg prescribed by doctor. My query is dat when I test my pp sugar after 2 hours of meals it comes around 240 but when I again test after 3 hours of meals (1 hour after pp sugar test), it comes around 150. Means the value of pp sugar test which should come after 2 hours of meals generally comes after 3 hours of meals. Is this ok or should I need further tests or medicine changes.

Dear Ashish, I acknowledge and appreciate this keep observation by you. This is what commonly occurs in Type-2 diabetes. This is reflective of the body's inability to handle the high glucose load of the meals taken due to insulin resistance which leads to higher than desired post meal blood glucose levels. Yes we need to adjust your medicines for this as this is not desirable and can lead to end organ damage in the body. As per lybrate policy, I cannot post medicine prescription in public forum, hence pls get back to me privately

I have blood sugar tested on 08-03-2015 Fasting - 139 and post fasting - 253 . This is first time. 3 months before I had checked that fasting was 114. Please suggest.

MD - Pathology
Pathologist, Noida
TO call any one as diabetic , your fasting sugar values should be more than 126 on at least two different occasions. ( Why ? - because fasting levels show much variations) Plus do you have any symptoms ? (like increase urination, increased thirst , etc) . Also an HbAic test would really help in this case. Currently a value in excess of 6.5 % is considered as diabetes.

I have suffering from uric acid problem. My label is 6.0.I have healed pain. Advise how to reduce it.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, protein is one of the most vital nutritional substances which are required for human body. Almost every high protein diet contains purine. This purine produces uric acid on oxidation. Excess uric acid is accumulated at the joints of human beings as urate salts. This accumulation of urate salts lead to pain & swelling of those affected joints & this condition is clinically known as gout. You should avoid high protein rich diet like mutton, chicken, beef, eggs, sea fish, spinach, garden pea, tomato, lentils etc. Also you need to take homoeopathic mother tincture urtica urens q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to dissolve the accumulated excess urate salts from the joints.

Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Tests every 3 to 6 months.

General Physician,
First of all you must have an ecg of heart & ct/mri of brain of your father so that we can make a diagnosis, high bp with dm can create some embolism in brain, so we need these two tests. Then consult me with private consultation, everything will be all right. Ok take care of your father sahib, may he live long.

Sir, I am 51 years old and suffering from diabetics since last 6 years and the results vary from 140 to 155 (fasting) and 180 to 200 after food. Please advise me how to maintain my sugar level and what diet should I take for that on regular basis. Thanks.

MD - Social & Preventive Medicine / Community Medicine, MBBS

Dear , I would like to applaud the fact that you are concerned about the health issues of diabetes and are looking to monitor your sugar levels and take adequate protection for the amelioration of the issue. Diabetes comes with a number of issues, especially related to the heart, kidneys, eyes and blood vessels. Maintaining a good blood sugar level is essential for protecting your organs. For holistic control of blood sugar, the following are essential and I would be glad to go over them in more details in consultation: a. Diabetic diet, which limits you to 1600 kcal per day (could be less/more, depending on your bmi) and is supplemented with regular aerobic exercise. B. Maintenance of blood sugar, and regular monitoring of fasting and after meal sugars using a glucometer and by hba1c measurement once every 3-4 months. C. Baseline estimation of lipids, kidney function, ophthalmoscopy, heart work up, etc. To have an idea of any other organ impairment. D. Preventive and curative drugs for various issues. I would be happy to provide details on these issues if you so deem pertinent. Best regards.

Can diabetic people drink milk with haldi. Because each cup of milk has 12gms of sugar and.

Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist, Mumbai
The casein in milk has a very high insulin index. This means that a lot of insulin is secreted to metabolise the milk sugar. Hence try to avoid dairy products if you can. Also there is too much adulteration in almost all the milk products. So you can drink haldi with warm water. It will help you.
