I'm diabetic weighing 76kg. My knees pain. And is swelling above and below knees.
Quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day.

Mr. Lybrate-user, from your description it appears that both diabetes and hypertension are not in control. Bp should ideally be 120 to 130/70 to 80 mm hg. Your bmi is 24.91 kgs/m2, which is marginally high (normal <23 kgs/m2). You have not mentioned anything about blood sugar level and hba1c%. Unless all details are made available, difficult to comment. However, as regards bp you have to initiate treatment immediately. Thanks.

Hi lybrate-user first of all just hang on brother and never get disheartened by the negative things that we doctors keep on telling patients. Cirrhosis is chronic progressive condition and decompensation means that the condition is showing complications- which in your case is obviously ascites. Most importantly and I cannot overemphasize this more- do not take salt more than 2gms in a day. Your ascites will increase with more salt. Avoid pickles, processed foods, ketchups, chutneys, infact anything that comes out of a packet or bottle has salt as preservative- so that amounts to invisible salt of your diet. Second, take less water. Only 500 to 600 ml more than your urine output. In hospitals we measure that output but at home - we can not. But you can be aware. Take green leafy vegetables- they are good source of vit k. Or you can ask your doctor for vit k inj supplementation. Do not stress. Tc.

Since your hba1c is near normal, it suggests that your long term sugar control is fine. What you need more importantly is strict diet plan and exercise. Take small frequent meals, avoid high sugar containing food. Take plenty of fibre rich foods. You may also be needing anti-diabetic medications suitable for your health profile. Consult for further query.

lybrate-user, If you have hypothyroidism and on treatment for it, then your TSH level should be between 3 to 4 mU/L, to be free from all the symptoms of that condition. Hypothyroidism also causes depressive tendency and anxiety episodes. Most important is to achieve a very good control of TSH level as mentioned above. You have not mentioned anything of thyroid test results (most recent or present). It is necessary to know whether current thyroxine dosage is adequate at all. Plus you will have to have a healthy diet and exercise daily for 1 hour. That will make you feel better. Thanks.

Diabetes control is governed by following the right diabetic diet. What to eat and what not to eat is important for diabetes control and diabetes cure or diabetes reversal. 

Even if you are pre-diabetic or borderline diabetic, or diabetes is part of your family, it is important to follow a diabetic diet to prevent diabetes.

"A diabetes diet should be high on fibre, must contain milk without cream, buttermilk, fresh seasonal fruits, green vegetables, etc" But remember to consume these components in moderation.

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" 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.

recipe for 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.

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.

Should you have non-veg?

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.

You have written that your father has high blood sugars & he has eye problems. This means he is most likely having type 2 diabetes mellitus. But in the" conditions" section, you have written diabetes insipidus. The 2 are entirely different conditions, though they sound similar. Please clarify.

I' m a 45yo insulin dependent diabetic male. Am on lantus (once a day, 18 units) and lispro (humalog) pre-meals. Also, take a blood thinner-statin combo (ecosprin av 75). My question: should I take my insulin shots (lantus, lispro or both) before my exercise or after? what should be the target blood sugar before exercise? I play badminton or squash for 40 min every morning. I ask this because I find my blood sugar high even an hour after exercise. I don' t take insulin before exercise and have a light meal half hour before it. An egg and two toast or an egg and a banana. Let me know. Thanks.

Practical Course in Diabetology, POST GRADUATE COURSE IN DIABETOLOGY, MBBS

Take your insulin in routine. Homolog before meals n lantus bedtime. What is more important you should check your sugar before n after exercise. If it is persistently high you can increase the dose of lantus by 4. 6 units. That won't increase the risk of hypoglycemia but if add homolog before exercise, chances of hypo will increase.
