How to control high pressure And diabetes. What should she eat to control these things.
To control high bp and diabetes proper treatment with specific drugs is necessary. Diet control is additional support. Diet should contain calories based on ideal body weight, exercise and sugar levels. For bp control salt reduction is essential. So avoid table salt, pickles and papad.

I am 60 years old suffering from Diabetic retinopathy. Is this curable by ayurvedic treatment?
Me lybrate-user, Diabetic retinopathy can only be controlled. There's no cure. It is absolutely essential to achieve strict blood glucose control so that it doesn't get bad. Plus depending upon whether it is Non proliferative or proliferative the retinal specialist will decide on right treatment. So please consult a very competent retinal specialist. Ayurveda has no treatment for this. Please do not listen to any such advise. I wish you early recovery. Thanks.

Can a diabetic have drinks like whisky or beer sometimes .how much is a safe quantity and frequency.
Dear user. Whether you are diabetic or not, it is not advisable to take liquor or alcoholic drinks at all because they are harmful for your liver, and whole of your body. Even a single drop of alcohol is poison for your liver. Quit alcohol. Take care.

Glycemic Index in Diabetes

MBBS, MD - General Medicine, DNB, DM - Endocrinology
Endocrinologist, Gurgaon
Glycemic Index in Diabetes

The glycemic index is a measure of food containing carbohydrates and how it can raise the level of glucose in blood. This is essentially a process where every food is ranked based on a reference food such as white bread. A food with a high GI value increases the level of glucose in the blood compared to a food with a GI that is medium or low. Some of the common examples of food with a low GI include legumes and dried beans. Fats and meats are not included in the index due to the non-availability of carbohydrate in them.

Some common foods with a GI of 55 or less include bread made up of pumpernickel and whole wheat, muesli, oatmeal, bulgur, barley, pasta, yam, lentils, sweet potato, converted rice, corn, non-starchy fruits, and vegetables. A food set with medium GI in the range of 56 to 69 includes quick oats, basmati rice, pita bread and couscous. Some example of foods with high GI value in the range of 70 includes pineapple, russet potato, white bread, macaroni, puffed rice, corn flakes, rice cakes and melons.

What influences GI?

Since GI has nothing to do with fibre and fat, some general findings of the GI count are as follows:

  1. When a food is processed or cooked, the GI tends to increase

  2. More the storage time of the food, the higher is the GI. It is applicable for ready to cook food and frozen food as well.

  3. The higher is the GI count, more the ripeness of a fruit or vegetable.

  4. Converted food items tend to have a lower GI as compared to the original version of the food

What are the other considerations?

While the GI value gives first-hand knowledge about the type of carbohydrate a person is consuming, it is hard of any help when it comes to the amount of carbohydrate intake. Portion size, therefore, still plays an important role for patients suffering from diabetes. The GI count of a food item greatly varies when combined with a food which has higher GI or lower GI for that matter. Nutritious food that is extremely beneficial for the body, tends to have a higher GI count. For instance, the GI count of oatmeal is greater than that of a chocolate.

Which one is more effective?

While there is no hard and fast rule for maintaining the carbohydrate count, an approach that is equally balanced between a GI count and carbohydrate count works best for a patient. Both the type of carbohydrate as well as the count of carbohydrate plays a crucial role in keeping the blood sugar level under control. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a endocrinologist.

Dear lybrateuser, - You can add sugar anyway,when you add it after making the tea mix it well - limit your sugar intake to 1-2 teaspoons a day as extra sugar adds to empty calories & raises the blood sugar level.

Dear Lybrateuser, - Do not worry you can have four no. Of dates but better to split them into two in the morning & two in the evening as the effect on blood sugar will be less - also try to walk for 10-15 min after your meals as it reduces the increase in blood sugar & also helps in proper digestion, reduce intake of other carbs accordingly when taking dates.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. As the things stand today, diabetes whether T1 or T2, has no cure. Both need to be treated for lifetime. Achieving strict blood glucose control is the only way of leading a healthy life for a diabetic person. This condition being a insulin deficiency disorder, one needs to either take insulin itself daily or take drugs that stimulate insulin secretion, plus those that reduce insulin resistance are to be taken for life time. There no CURE in the horizon at least for next few decades. Some pancreas transplants and growing pancreas (particularly Beta cells) by stem cells have been tried. But with very little success. Thanks.

What are the causes of diabetes. Is it hereditary? What are the chances of it being inherited from parents?

MBBS, MD - Medicine
General Physician, Delhi
What are the causes of diabetes. Is it hereditary? What are the chances of it being inherited from parents?
Type 1 diabetes occurs sporadically and usually occurs at younger age due to insulin deficiency and treated with insulin injections. Type 2 can be hereditary if your parents are disbetic and it occurs usually in adults due to insulin resistance and treated with oral medicines. There is 50% risk if both your parents are diabetic. It can't be cured completely but you can keep it controlled by taking dietary precautions n regular exercise along wid medications.
