With a good diet plan you can reverse the effect of diabetes. And all foods are allowed even on diabetes. It just matters how much you eat and when you eat. There are many cases where high sugar levels are managed with diet and exercise and taken off of medicines. For a personalised diet plan you can consult with me on private chat.

You have provided some details about your wife's condition but certain other details are also needed, which I am mentioning. Please let me know her hba1c level and is she taking any thing else for diabetes other than glucobay? because only glucobay does not control sugar level. Furthe what is her lipid profile? and which drug is she taking for that? then which 5 mg tablet she is taking for her high blood pressure? if she has been diagnosed to have pvd which means blood supply to that part of the lower limb is affected. This can be corrected by vascular surgeon and proper blood supply can be restored. That is the best option for her pain relief and getting undisturbed sleep. To get better control of diabetes she may have to take additional treatment.

Timely and balanced diet is as important as regular medicine intake to control diabetes. You should go for 30 minutes brisk walk in the morning. Do regular exercise atleast 15-20 minutes daily. Include protein rich food in your diet. Include more fruits and vegetables in your diet. Take lukewarm water with half spoon methidana powder in the morning. Take salad before meals. Drink more water in a day. Don't take rice at night and don't skip breakfast. Avoid junk food and oily food. Avoid late night dinner, take small and frequent meals.

I am using thyronorm 125 mg one tablet every day since 2011. Right now all things are going well. My question is whether I have to continue or what to do please suggest.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
If your tsh is within range after taking 100 mcg of thyronorm every day then that's all that you need to continuously do. Thyroid hormone deficiency is tackled by proving this hormone in tablet form to the patient every day. Since you are already controlled with a set dose - you just have to continue this good habit.

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.i.e. t3,t4,tsh, also do vit.D. and vit. B., s.calcium.

What are the steps to be taken to control blood sugar. What is the food habit of diabetic patient.
If you have type 2 diabetes and your blood sugar levels are racing up and down like a roller coaster, it's time to get off the ride. Big swings in your blood sugar can make you feel lousy. But even if you aren't aware of them, they can still increase your risk for a number of serious health problems. By making simple but specific adjustments to your lifestyle and diet, you can gain better blood-sugar control. Your body uses the sugar, also known as glucose, in the foods you eat for energy. Think of it as a fuel that keeps your body moving throughout the day.

Reduce diet by 20% overall do not take sweets and oil otherwise indian standard diet is as good as diabetics diet andno major changes are required. The diet charts are difficult to follow. Write your daily routine diet and reduce by 20%

Hello Doctor, my father is suffering from diabetes. Day before yesterday he made a test for which results are Fasting -347 & PP- 589. Doctor recommended Gemer Ds2. But by taking that particular medicine, suddenly the sugar level dropped down to 238 & my father was feeling very uneasy. Today again he made a fasting test for which results are 243. Doctor has now recommended Metsmall 500. But again my father is feeling uneasy. I wanna know is there any solution to this? Should we change the doctor? Waiting for your valuable feedback. Thank you

Hello there, Thank you for your question. The blood sugars your father is currently having are very high. The best remedy for him would be to start insulin. Although his sugars are not low they have come down from the beginning levels of 500 and so your father is feeling uneasy. Having a fasting of 243 warrants insulin to be started. Request your doctor to start insulin, I am sure your doctor will guide you for the same. Also give him enough water and keep him well hydrated in the meanwhile. Thanks and Regards Dr Shreya Kunder

Fasting should be around 100-110 and after meals 140-160; of course your levels are high. You should target hba1c of less than 6.5.

Hello, Mentioned blood glucose levels are within normal range. In a normal person there is nothing like low glucose level. That can happen if a person has insulinoma, an excess insulin producing timor. Looking at your weight and height it is clear that you are having grade 1 obesity witha BMI of 30.06 kgs /M2 (normal <23 kgs/M2). Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, You have not mentioned which drug/s you are taking and what is the current dosage. Hence, difficult to advise. If blood glucose is marginally high, then one can bring it down to desired level by 1) increased exercise or 2) reduced food intake. There is no need to always increase the dose. Looking at your weight and height, BMI is 26.49 kgs/M2, which is showing over weight. So reduction weight itself will bring down the blood glucose. Thanks.

You have not mentioned your height. For diabetes you need to avoid sugar, jaggery and honey. In fruits you need to restrict banana, chickoo, mango, sitaphal, watermelon, sugarcane, muskmelon, grapes etc. Yo0u need to avoid deep fried foods like farsan and namkeen etc. In vegetables you need to restrict potato, sweet potato, yam, beetroot and carrot etc. Try to consume more of salad, Vegetables and whole grains. Eat small and frequent meals. Do not consume any of your meal heavy. Start taking fenugreek seeds whole or powder in the morning as it will help you keeping your sugar up to normal. Do more of yoga, breathing exercises and weight loss exercises under expert's observation. Your HBA1C should be 5 or below.

I have fatty liver. Sgot and sgpt level is high. And high cholesterol. Uric acid high level. What should i do?
high cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain. Take anti cholesterol medicines . take anti uric acid medicines.and medicines for liver .
