Can we take the honey available in market like Dabur Honey? Can a diabetic patient take honey one teaspoon daily? Please advise.

Mr. Lybrate-user, in my opinion honey is not recommended in a diabetes patient, as it is another form of sucrose. It contains 50% fructose + 50% glucose. Plus some vitamins and antioxidants. Suppose if some one still wants to use it, then there has to be a very strict blood sugar control with fasting around 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg, hba1c% <6.8. Thanks for the question.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus can only be controlled by appropriate medicines, proper diet (restricted diet) and regular exercise. If blood sugar is not kept in control (fasting closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <6.8.), then there is a definite possibility of serious long term complications in relation to eyes (retina), kidney, lower limbs, peripheral nerves and heart. Yes there is an increased risk of heart attacks in uncontrolled diabetes patients. Another important thing our blood ph is in the range of 7.33 to 7.45 which is slightly alkaline. Our blood always remains in this range. There no blood acidity.

Following these simple tips for reducing flab from your face. Keep yourself hydrated. A bloated face might be a result of dehydration. Plan a diet low in fat and sugar and high in fruits and vegetables. Don’t forget to eat breakfast to boost up your metabolism for weight loss. Say no to alcohol and smoking. Keep yourself active and perform 30 minutes of physical activity on a daily basis. Don’t compromise on your eight hours of restful sleep.

Dear lybrate-user, 1) I this word nothing is impossible provided you must understand your problem, its root cause & off course constant - sincere efforts. 2) you have two problems 1) diabetes & 2) obesity (your bmi is 32.85). For both issue you have to monitor biological parameters closely & try to maintain normal values. 3) be active, brisk walk for 40 minutes. 4) avoid sweets, oily, heavy, fermented, tinned, packed, junk food. 5) reduce 25% carbohydrates. 6) increase vegetables (green & fruit), more proteins- dal, cow milk, egg white, fish, fat free chicken. 7) reduce your weight- fat by 20-25 kgs.

I'm a type 2 diabetic women. I'm 2 months pregnant. Kya baby ko diabetes ho sakti hai?

Diabetes in the mother does not get transmitted directly to the baby. However, being the child of a diabetic parent, your child will have a higher chance of developing diabetes later in life. In pregnancy, however, one needs to control the sugars very strictly, otherwise the baby can have many problems including congenital anomalies, hypoglycemia, metabolic problems and growth problems etc.

your bmi (29.47 kg/m2) suggests you are excessively over weight. Main reason for this is inactivity and improper diet. If you want reduce weight then you have to first reduce your present food intake by at least 20 to 25 %, avoid deep fried foods completely, use whole grain flour for breads (rotis), no junk or processed food, plenty of green vegetables (avoiding cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli and mustard, soya and soya containing foods), increase fiber intake. Plus exercise for at least 1 h a day, preferably brisk walking. Periodically check thyroid levels.

Make sure you take thyroid medicine properly and control thyroid level. You need to have a diet and exercise plan based on your BMI, age & weight and sex, presence of any diseases. There are exercises specific for each part of body like hips, thighs or abdomen. There are matters to be discussed privately. Comprehensive exercise& diet plan based on whether vegetarian /non vegetarian can be given if you ask privately. May also need to do some tests. In brief, weight reduction can be achieved only by reducing the intake of food 1/3 of what you take now. And by appropriate exercise plans for each part like belly, thighs, legs etc. To burn off fat. Some tips 1) drink three or four cups of water whenever you feel hungry and just before eating food 2) take boiled or raw vegetable like cucumber, carrot etc. As half of your diet. Then take 1/4 of your total diet as sprouted pulses / proteinaceous food like roti, cooked pulses and remaining with rice or other carbohydrates. Oil or ghee etc. Should be just bare minimum. The most important is to burn off the energy intake by exercises. There is no short cut or medicines without exercise. The food we eat is utilised for our energy needs and the remaining will be stored as fat which leads to obesity. It is better to do some tests. For more detailed and personal advice ask me privately www. Lybrate. Com/drsajeev. It is essential and useful to have a doctor answer your doubts online as it time spent in going to a clinic. Majority of diseases can be treated by online by consultation with an experienced doctor and does not need physical examination. You can ask me privately at this site. Regards.

The increase in the blood sugar levels damages nerves and blood vessels. It also leads to complications like cardiovascular diseases, strokes, kidney problems, blindness, dental problems and amputations. High blood glucose levels also damage nerves and blood vessels. Diabetes can also lead to depression, fertility issues, and increased risk of other diseases and lack of mobility as the age of the person increases. It is very difficult to find out what exactly triggers diabetes, but health experts say that genes and environmental factors are responsible for rise in blood glucose levels. There are two types of diabetes- type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. Let us study the causes that give rise to type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Diabetes is a grave medical condition, but with a healthy diet and regular exercise, managing the condition becomes a child? s play. Here are a handful of diabetes home remedies every diabetic can rely on to keep fluctuations of sugar levels under control. Bitter gourd: bitter gourds are one among the most effective ways for preventing sugar level fluctuations. Being a safe vegetable, this iron-rich gourd can be consumed by anyone. It influences the glucose metabolism in the body and helps stimulate pancreatic insulin secretion. Known to thwart off insulin resistance, bitter gourd is equally beneficial for people suffering from type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Drink a glass of bitter gourd juice, flavored with a little honey, every morning to keep diabetes away. Guava is rich in both vitamin c and fiber, both that help in maintaining normal blood sugar levels. A very good home remedy for diabetes. Just peel the skin and consume one fruit daily to reap its benefits get some physical activity daily to burn calories and stay in shape. This will also reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Have a lot of fiber in the form of fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and whole grains any queries inform me. And loose some weight you want diet chart consult privately.

I can understand that it is a very young age to be suffering from hypertension. Have you been investigated adequately as to why you are suffering from somany problems at the same time. If yes then you need to understand that illness are something which happen to us and then we need to find a way to keep them under control and keep going on with our lives. You need to see a psychologist or a psychiatrist asap.

Mr p k mishra, istamet is a good combination in treating t2 diabetes, provided it is bringing your sugar levels to desired values. The combination is as safe as any other oral anti diabetic drug. And about being perfect, well there is no drug which is perfect except probably insulin injections. If your disease is well controlled and hba1c % is around 6.5% then you should continue the same. Along with this exercise and restricted diet are equally important and not to be over looked.
