Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, getting sugar level down is not only a matter of medicine, but also diet & lifestyle control. Start drinking less than 1 ltr water in 24 hrs, eat only light meals, min gap between meals should be 6 hrs. Work on digestion and you will get better.

It is better for diabetics to avoid sugar/ honey/ jaggery/ sabudana as these are source of empty calories, cause spike in blood glucose levels & lead to obesity. sweets/ chocolates/ cold drinks/ ice cream should also be avoided. In case of sweet cravings it is better to include a piece of sweet fruit like banana/ mango/ grapes/ watermelon/ jackfruit/ dates. You may also have artificial sweetener (stevia) if still sugar taste is needed.

What are the probable causes of diabetes. Does it relates to malfunctioning of lever also ?

MD-Ayurveda, Basic Life Support (B.L.S), Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

No not due to liver. It is hereditary problem. That is it may have come to you from your mother or father. Pancreas loses its functions of secretion of insulin. Ayurveda may help you to prevent it. You may consult.

Mr. lybrate-user, If you have not yet started treatment for diabetes, then please start immediately. There is no option. Along with drugs, take a planned restricted diet and exercise regularly for 1 hour a day. Diabetes is confirmed when FBS >126 mg, or PP >200 mg and HbA1c%>6.5. Thanks.

How about a similar contrast between honey and sugar? How much sugar can a non-diabetic adult consume daily?

How about a similar contrast between honey and sugar? How much sugar can a non-diabetic adult consume daily?
lybrate-user, Sugar and honey both contain sucrose which is made up of glucose and fructose. Sugar is made by certain chemical processes and is only sucrose. Where as honey has some vitamins and anti- oxidants. There is no lower or upper limit for consuming sugar. But excess sugar is definitely not good for health. In fact one need not consume sugar at all. Because all the grains that we eat like rice, wheat, jowar, bajra and millets contain mainly starch, which is ultimately converted to glucose. However, it is better to eat as less as possible, to remain healthy. Thanks.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine

pl. tell us reports of your thyroid..then we can advice you. 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,

Hi Strict diet, exercise for 30 min a day for atleast 4- 5 days a week will help you. There are new diabetic medicines which not only reduces blood sugars but also causes significant weight loss. As you've already mentioned the reason for your weight gain, Do not sit for more than an hour. Take a walk for a minute after an hour and then you can resume. Also drink plenty of water.

How Obesity Increases The Risk For Diabetes!

MBBS, MD - General Medicine, FACE, FACP, FRCP (London)
Diabetologist, Lucknow
How Obesity Increases The Risk For Diabetes!

Diabetes is a complex group of diseases with a variety of causes. People with diabetes have high blood glucose, also called high blood sugar or hyperglycemia.

Diabetes is a disorder of metabolism, the way the body uses digested food for energy. The digestive tract breaks down carbohydrates, sugars and starches found in many foods, into glucose, a form of sugar that enters the bloodstream. Diabetes develops when the body doesn't make enough insulin or is not able to use insulin effectively, or both.

The two main types of diabetes are:

Type 1 Diabetes: Type 1 diabetes typically occurs in children and young adults, though it can appear at any age. In the past, type 1 diabetes was called juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. Heredity plays an important part in determining who is likely to develop type 1 diabetes. Genes are passed down from biological parent to child.

Type 2 Diabetes: Type 2 diabetes develops most often in middle-aged and older people who are also overweight or obese. The disease, once rare in youth, is becoming more common in overweight and obese children and adolescents. Type 2 diabetes is caused by a combination of factors, including insulin resistance, a condition in which the body's muscle, fat, and liver cells do not use insulin effectively.

Physical Inactivity, Obesity, and Diabetes-

Physical inactivity and obesity are strongly associated with the development of type 2 diabetes. People who are genetically susceptible to type 2 diabetes are more vulnerable when these risk factors are present. About 80 percent of people with type 2 diabetes are overweight or obese.

An imbalance between caloric intake and physical activity can lead to obesity, which causes insulin resistance and is common in people with type 2 diabetes. Central obesity, in which a person has excess abdominal fat, is a major risk factor not only for insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes but also for heart and blood vessel disease, also called cardiovascular disease (CVD). This excess belly fat produces hormones and other substances that can cause harmful, chronic effects in the body such as damage to blood vessels.

So, measuring your waist is a quick way of assessing your diabetes risk. This is a measure of abdominal obesity, which is a particularly high-risk form of obesity. Women have a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes if their waist measures 80cm (31.5 inches) or more. Asian men with a waist size of 89cm (35 inches) or more have a higher risk, as do white or black men with a waist size of 94cm (37 inches) or more.

Simple Steps to Lower Your Risk-

Making a few lifestyle changes can dramatically lower the chances of developing type 2 diabetes. The same changes can also lower the chances of developing heart disease and other life taking cancers.

  1. Control Your Weight: Being overweight increases the chances of developing type 2 diabetes seven-fold. Being obese makes you 20 to 40 times more likely to develop diabetes than someone with a healthy weight. Losing weight can help if your weight is above the healthy-weight range. Check your BMI. Losing 7 to 10 percent of your current weight can cut your chances of developing type 2 diabetes in half.
  2. Get Moving and Turn Off the Television: Inactivity promotes type 2 diabetes. Working your muscles more often and making them work harder improves their ability to use insulin and absorb glucose. This puts less stress on your insulin-making cells.
  3. Tune Up Your Diet: Four dietary changes can have a big impact on the risk of type 2 diabetes-
    • Choose whole grains and whole grain products over highly processed carbohydrates.
    • Skip the sugary drinks, and choose water, coffee, or tea instead.
    • Choose good fats instead of bad fats.
    • Limit red meat and avoid processed meat; choose nuts, whole grains, poultry, or fish instead.

If you are already suffering from diabetes, then do take a walk everyday and adopt healthy eating habits. Along with that relieve your stress and take proper doses of insulin or medications as prescribed by your doctor. Consult an Expert & get answers to your questions!
