Hye, thanks for the query. For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - the sugar levels will fluctuate depending on what you ate or did not eat, stress levels and activity levels. You have to try and manage a balanced carb intake. Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. You have to eat 3 main and 3 mid meals. Your diet must include whole grains, seasonal fruits, vegetables, small amounts of nuts and dairy and pulses or dals or lean meats like chicken or fish and egg. Starchy vegetables need to be planned into the diet. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Avoid exercise if sugar levels are above 250 mg/dl. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Mr. lybrate-user, When on treatment TH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms are in check. So there appears to be a need for increasing the dose of thyroxine. Thanks.

How to get free from diabetes. can it be cured?
Diabetes is a condition which develops with insulin disorders. It is very important to keep your sugar levels normal by maintaining a healthy lifestlye. Eating every 3 hours low glycemic foods, and walking is very imp for insulin release and regultion.

Now I am doing walking for 30 to 40 minutes 5 days in week. Left sugar and sweets. I checked diabetes after 15 days. Now my fasting is 110 and p. P is150. And not taking any dialectic medicines. So please suggest me herbals. So I can make more control my sugar levels.

It is good that you are able to control sugar levels with dietary regime. Continue to do some form of exercise as it is very helpful for blood sugar levels. Increase fiber intake in your diet in the form of whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables. For a prescription, please consult privately through lybrate with your lft and kft reports.

DIABETES AND THE RETINA! How can people with diabetes protect their vision?

DIABETES AND THE RETINA! How can people with diabetes protect their vision?

The IMPORTANCE of early treatment

Although a person's vision may be good, changes taking place in the retina may require treatment. Most sight loss due to diabetes is preventable if treated early. The earlier the treatment is given the more effective it is.

In a nutshell: Early diagnosis is vital.

Annual retinal screening appointment is quintessential.

Worsening of vision may not necessarily mean diabetic retinopathy. It may simply be a problem that can be rectified with glasses.

Vision lost to diabetic retinopathy is sometimes irreversible. Women with diabetes who become pregnant should have a comprehensive dilated eye exam as soon as possible. Additional exams during pregnancy may be needed.

Multiple studies have shown that controlling diabetes slows the onset and worsening of diabetic retinopathy. Other trials have also demonstrated that controlling elevated blood pressure and cholesterol can reduce the risk of vision loss among people with diabetes.

Treatment for diabetic retinopathy is often delayed until it starts to progress to a complicated or irreversible stage. Comprehensive frequent dilated eye exams are needed more frequently as diabetic retinopathy becomes more severe. People with a high risk of developing complications may need a comprehensive dilated eye exam as often as every month.

To summarize, early diagnosis of diabetic retinopathy is important.

Don't wait for the vision to deteriorate to have an eye test.

Inform your eye specialist in case you notice changes to your vision.

Feel free to ask questions or express fears about your treatment.

Strict control of sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol reduce the risk of diabetes-related sight loss.

Smoking increases your risk of diabetes-related sight loss.

First of all. Reduce weight as obesity causes insulin resistance. Secondly make life style changes. Healthy diet habbits. These two can reverse your status to normal. Also need clarification if you have any family history of diabetes.

What are the side effects of long term insulin injections?

What are the side effects of long term insulin injections?
Insulin is the most natural therapy for diabetics. Side effects include hypoglycaemia if the dose of insulin n food n exercise is mis matched. Others include weight gain, changing/ fluctuating eye numbers until blood sugars are stabilised. However I would not count thelatter as side effects. One needs to monitor the dosage og carbohydrtaes n insulin properly.
