Mr. Lybrate-user, the sugar levels are very high, particularly fasting. So you need to start treatment with anti-diabetes drugs. There are many medicines, which can be used. I would also like to know hba1c%, before advising any medication. Along with medicine you will have to exercise regularly and take a restricted diet. Plus avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, white bread, other bakery items, fructose corn syrup containing products, sweetened aerated drinks and high fat milk products. Exercise regularly for about 1 hour a day.

Hello sir, if you are taking insulin then don't skip your meal take 3 major meal & 2-3 small meal/ snacks. In traveling time you should carry some food items like roasted chana, sprouts, salad like cucumber, salty lassi or butter milk. Avoid simple sugar / simple carbs. Take high fiber diet it will help you in constipation. Take 4-5 meal of vegetables & salad. Don't forget to take sufficient water. Do regular walk/ exercise/yoga or any other physical activity. One most important thing take sufficient amount of food after taking insulin otherwise it can cause hypoglycaemia (low sugar). So always carry some toffee/sugar or any other sweets.

I have taken metacarbacol muscle relaxant and observed that my sugar level has gone up from 115 to 140 in 4 days medication. Of 1 tablet bd.

Hi there ~ Recommended foods in diabetes: Make your calories count with these nutritious foods: Healthy carbohydrates. During digestion, sugars (simple carbohydrates) and starches (complex carbohydrates) break down into blood glucose. Focus on the healthiest carbohydrates, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes (beans, peas and lentils) and low-fat dairy products. Fiber-rich foods. Dietary fiber includes all parts of plant foods that your body can't digest or absorb. Fiber can decrease the risk of heart disease and help control blood sugar levels. Foods high in fiber include vegetables, fruits, nuts, legumes (beans, peas and lentils), whole-wheat flour and wheat bran. Heart-healthy fish. Eat heart-healthy fish at least twice a week. Fish can be a good alternative to high-fat meats. For example, cod, tuna and halibut have less total fat, saturated fat and cholesterol than do meat and poultry. Fish such as salmon, mackerel, tuna, sardines and bluefish are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which promote heart health by lowering blood fats called triglycerides. However, avoid fried fish and fish with high levels of mercury, such as tilefish, swordfish and king mackerel.'Good' fats. Foods containing monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats — such as avocados, almonds, pecans, walnuts, olives, and canola, olive and peanut oils — can help lower your cholesterol levels. Eat them sparingly, however, as all fats are high in calories. Foods to avoid Diabetes increases your risk of heart disease and stroke by accelerating the development of clogged and hardened arteries. Foods containing the following can work against your goal of a heart-healthy diet. Saturated fats. High-fat dairy products and animal proteins such as beef, hot dogs, sausage and bacon contain saturated fats. Get no more than 7 percent of your daily calories from saturated fat. Trans fats. These types of fats are found in processed snacks, baked goods, shortening and stick margarines and should be avoided completely. Cholesterol. Sources of cholesterol include high-fat dairy products and high-fat animal proteins, egg yolks, shellfish, liver, and other organ meats. Aim for no more than 300 milligrams (mg) of cholesterol a day. Sodium. Aim for less than 2, 300 mg of sodium a day. Take the help of a nutritionist if you feel like the above was helpful but you need more support. Hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely da

Lybrate-user, some times certain genetic make up is such that weight gain becomes difficult. No obvious reason is detectable. However, you may increase your food intake, do some regular exercise, preferably join a gym. Exercise will help in improving appetite and hence intake. Your ideal body weight should be about 50 kgs. Add at least 2 eggs in your diet per day. Consume fruits, vegetables, nuts and red meat or fish. Also. Milk and cheese can be added to diet. Weight increase may take a longer time. Thanks.

Mr Parv, Exercise for more than an hour a day, like brisk walking, jogging or running or a gym workout is good enough. Plus diet control if you have diabetes, then avoid sweets, sugar, jaggery, junk foods and pastries. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits. Take prescribed medications regularly without fail.

1) have regular meals. Divide your meals into 5 to 6 times. 2) one teaspoon of methi seeds soaked overnight in 100 ml of water is very effective in controlling diabetes 3) good fats such as omega-3 and monounsaturated fats (mufa) should be consumed as they are good for the body. 4) diet should be high in fiber. Let whole grain cereals & flour, salad vegetables, green leafy vegetables & fruits be an integral part of your meals.

A lesser-known side effect of Diabetes is increased risk of hair loss.It can be directly or indirectly related to Diabetes.

Hair loss can start with beginning of Diabetes.Many times it Diabetes warning sign.Anyone with unusual hair loss should talk to a doctor.

POTENTIAL CAUSES OF HAIR LOSS

1.Diabetes causes damage to the small blood vessels thus limits oxygen and nutrients reaching the the scalp.Undernourished hair follicles (roots) gets weaken and loose their grip causing hair loss

2.Diabetes can cause fluctuations hormone production.This imbalance of hormones affects the growth cycle of hair.

3.Diabetes weakens immune system.In such situation scalp is more susceptible to fungal and bacterial infections leading hair loss.

4.Diabetes can slow the body’s cell regeneration time, disturbing the growth cycle of hair.

5.Illness, stress or hormonal fluctuations can cause hair to enter the resting phase, leading to diffuse thinning of the hair.

6. The hair loss could be caused by conditions not related or indirectly related to Diabetes.For example Thyroid dysfunction.

Hair loss becomes permanent when the hair follicles are destroyed, so early diagnosis and treatment are important.

WHAT YOU CAN DO

1.Good Diabetes control.This allows hormones to balance, immune system to strengthen, and the hair growth cycle to get back on track.

If you notice unusual hair loss, see your Diabetologist Doctor to determine whether the shedding is related to Diabetes.
If the shedding is a medication side effect, a prescription change is the obvious solution.

SOME HAIR CARE TIPS

1.Use hair brushes with widely spaced bristles

2.Minimal use of hair dryers and curling irons.

3.Avoid braids or ponytails that pull on the scalp.

4.Avoid products with harsh chemicals such as perms, hair straighteners, or dyes.

5.Protect the hair from sun, wind, and chlorine exposure.

6.Eat a well-balanced diet.

7.Exercise regularly to promote optimal circulation

8.Use relaxation techniques for stress reduction.

Hair shedding can diminish self-esteem and sometimes leads to social anxiety or depression. So act wisely and smartly.

How Diabetes Can Affect Vision

MBBS, Diploma in Diabetology, DDM, CCACCD

Diabetes is the condition where the blood glucose levels in your body tend to be quite high and can have an adverse effect on many of the organs in your body. The eyes are no exception and can be quite adversely affected by diabetes as well. Let's look at the various problems you could face if you have diabetes.

1. Blurry vision: diabetes can cause the lens in the eye to swell and this will affect the way you see. Because of the increased lens size, the eyes have difficulty in focusing on objects resulting in blurry vision. You will have to get your blood sugar levels back to normal and only then the vision will begin to correct itself. This will however take time to happen.

2. Cataract: blurry vision for an extended period of time which progressively gets worse can be a symptom of cataract. Although cataracts can develop even with normal patients, they tend to accelerate and happen earlier in adults who have diabetes. Cataracts are usually fixed with surgery where the natural lens is removed and replaced with an artificial lens.

3. Diabetic retinopathy: diabetic retinopathy and retinal detachment are one of the leading causes of blindness in adults who suffer from diabetes. The retina is a very important part of the eye which allows us to see the images by capturing light and then sending them to the brain via the optical nerve. With diabetic retinopathy the smaller blood vessels in your retina may get damaged and thus end up causing damage to your vision. This can be of three types:

A. Proliferative retinopathy: in this condition very small blood vessels grow from the surface of the retina. The retina is the film at the back of your eye, and the tiny blood vessels are capillaries. These growing blood vessels are very delicate and bleed easily.

If you have had diabetes for years your retinae may develop this condition. As the retina is damaged by diabetes, the diseased retina releases special growth chemicals. These chemicals make tiny blood vessels grow: these are called'new blood vessels.

B. Background retinopathy: background or nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy (npdr) is the earliest stage of diabetic retinopathy. With this condition, damaged blood vessels in the retina begin to leak extra fluid and small amounts of blood into the eye

C. Maculopathy: the macula is the central area of your retina. It is responsible for all your sharp vision, such as used for watching tv or reading. It can become damaged in diabetes, with leaks developing (oedema).

4. Glaucoma: this is a condition where fluids build up inside the eye and it results in the pressure within it building up. This may damage the blood vessels within the eye and cause vision changes. Problems within the eye may not be detected till you experience vision loss. Some of the symptoms of glaucoma may include:

1. Blurry vision

2. Watering from eyes

3. Difficulty in vision

4. Pain in the eyes

5. Lights appear to have halos

6. Headaches

Treatments

Blurry vision also tends to go away slowly once the level of blood glucose is controlled either via medicines or by diet changes. However, glaucoma or diabetic retinopathy may require a range of medicines to ease the pressure on the eye or to discharge fluid buildup. If none of these works, then relevant surgery may be required to resolve the problems.

How can I control my blood pressure and sugar at home without using any medicine at home?

How can I control my blood pressure and sugar at home without using any medicine at home?
1. Lose extra pounds and watch your waistline Blood pressure often increases as weight increases. Being overweight also can cause disrupted breathing while you sleep (sleep apnea), which further raises your blood pressure. Weight loss is one of the most effective lifestyle changes for controlling blood pressure. Losing just 4.5 kilograms can help reduce your blood pressure. Besides shedding weight, you generally should also keep an eye on your waistline. Carrying too much weight around your waist can put you at greater risk of high blood pressure. In general: • Men are at risk if their waist measurement is greater than 40 inches (102 centimeters). • Women are at risk if their waist measurement is greater than 35 inches (89 centimeters). These numbers vary among ethnic groups. Ask your doctor about a healthy waist measurement for you. 2. Exercise regularly Regular physical activity — at least 30 minutes most days of the week — can lower your blood pressure by 4 to 9 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg). It's important to be consistent because if you stop exercising, your blood pressure can rise again. If you have slightly high blood pressure (prehypertension), exercise can help you avoid developing full-blown hypertension. If you already have hypertension, regular physical activity can bring your blood pressure down to safer levels. The best types of exercise for lowering blood pressure include walking, jogging, cycling, swimming or dancing. Strength training also can help reduce blood pressure. Talk to your doctor about developing an exercise program. 3. Eat a healthy diet Eating a diet that is rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy products and skimps on saturated fat and cholesterol can lower your blood pressure by up to 14 mm Hg. It isn't easy to change your eating habits, but with these tips, you can adopt a healthy diet: • Keep a food diary. Writing down what you eat, even for just a week, can shed surprising light on your true eating habits. Monitor what you eat, how much, when and why. • Consider boosting potassium. Potassium can lessen the effects of sodium on blood pressure. The best source of potassium is food, such as fruits and vegetables, rather than supplements. Talk to your doctor about the potassium level that's best for you. • Be a smart shopper. Read food labels when you shop and stick to your healthy-eating plan when you're dining out, too. 4. Reduce sodium in your diet Even a small reduction in the sodium in your diet can reduce blood pressure by 2 to 8 mm Hg. The effect of sodium intake on blood pressure varies among groups of people. In general, limit sodium to less than 2,300 milligrams (mg) a day or less. However, a lower sodium intake — 1,500 mg a day or less — is appropriate for people with greater salt sensitivity, including: Anyone age 51 or older Anyone diagnosed with high blood pressure, diabetes or chronic kidney disease To decrease sodium in your diet, consider these tips: • Read food labels. If possible, choose low-sodium alternatives of the foods and beverages you normally buy. • Eat fewer processed foods. Only a small amount of sodium occurs naturally in foods. Most sodium is added during processing. • Don't add salt. Just 1 level teaspoon of salt has 2,300 mg of sodium. Use herbs or spices to add flavor to your food. • Ease into it. If you don't feel you can drastically reduce the sodium in your diet suddenly, cut back gradually. Your palate will adjust over time. 5. Limit the amount of alcohol you drink Alcohol can be both good and bad for your health. In small amounts, it can potentially lower your blood pressure by 2 to 4 mm Hg. But that protective effect is lost if you drink too much alcohol — generally more than one drink a day for women and for men older than age 65, or more than two a day for men age 65 and younger. One drink equals 12 ounces of beer, five ounces of wine or 1.5 ounces of 80-proof liquor. Drinking more than moderate amounts of alcohol can actually raise blood pressure by several points. It can also reduce the effectiveness of blood pressure medications
