Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Fennel seeds can be taken by a person with diabetes. Whether adding those to tea, (for sweetness), I am not sure. But you can consume those. There are quite a few benefits being claimed about those seeds. Thanks.

Hi drink some bitter gourd juice on an empty stomach each morning. First remove the seeds of two to three bitter gourds and use a juicer to extract the juice. Add some water and then drink it. Follow this treatment daily in the morning for at least two months. Take pranacharya diabeto and shilajeet capsule twice a day with water. Take vasant kusumakar ras twice a day. Avoid sweets. Take small meals in less time interval. Do pranayama early morning. Avoid alcohol consumption.

How much is the PPBS? If it is less than 180 mg% then it's fine. It's more important to see what your HBA1C is. If that is close to 7, then it's sufficient.

Ayurveda is only offers roi (return of investment), so thanks to our self less forefathers who only shared that dm can reverse and to be maintained n it takes individual efforts. Thanks you trust ayurveda. Start yoga soon n now u'll find large group to move on the path. Though you controlling dm at good but most of dm cases may land in its complications of arteries n nerves. Modern shares its idiopathic? it means so many things involved in this. Yet modern medicine science to be enriched. Yeah those r accepting d things as well. Till you meet ayurveda Dr. You can rely on 3gm mixture of amala, haldi n daru haldi in equal proportion at night/early morning with warm water.

Management of Diabetes

Endocrinologist, Bangalore
Management of Diabetes

Limiting unhealthy food is very important in management of diabetes

It's simple: our portions are oversized. This leads to excess calories and extra pounds. Of particular concern, according to the 2010 dietary guidelines, are jumbo servings of foods with refined grains, solid fats, and added sugars -- think fried chips, fatty burgers, sugary drinks, pastries, and desserts

It's time to downsize extra-large servings of less-healthful foods and upsize servings of foods we're not eating enough of vegetables, fruits, dairy foods, and whole grains. Start by reducing your portions of less-healthful foods by 5 to 10 percent. You'll barely notice the trimming, but you'll immediately taper your intake of calories, carbohydrate, fat, and sodium. Over time, this portion slim-down will improve your weight, blood glucose, cholesterol, and blood pressure

I am male 68 yrs. My fasting sugar is 85 to 98 with medicines and insulin, post after breakfast is 140 to 150 with Brown rice and wheat upma. My sugar goes up ie 200 to 219 with white rice and wheat chapatis. Why? Should I increase insulin. Advise. Tks.

MBBS, MD
Endocrinologist, Delhi
You should follow diet with which your blood sugar remains controlled. Increasing insulin with white rice and wheat chapati may increase your weight.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus is occurring either due to lack of insulin or resistance to its action or both. (t2 dm). Since insulin is needed for daily for glucose, protein and fat metabolism, if it is lacking or there resistance to its action, then it has to be made available with help of various drugs. If not then there is persistent high blood sugar. High blood sugar affects small & large blood vessels, nerve fibers and almost every vital organ in the body. Untreated or uncontrolled diabetes causes blindness, chronic kidney failure leading to total failure, peripheral neuropathy, affection to feet, non- healing ulcers on foot, lower limb, can lead to loss of limb. In india 1 lac limbs are cut due to diabetic gangrene. Severe burning sensation and tingling and numbness may occur in the lower limbs. Silent heart attacks are common. So we need to treat diabetes for life long.

Please do not stop your medicines on your own. It may be harmful. Please discuss this with your endocrinoogist. You can get your anti TPO antibody titer done. If it is positive, chances of stopping medicines are reduced.

Precautions for diabetic patients during Ramzan fast

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
“Patients with type 1 diabetes should avoid fasting. However, those type 2 diabetes can fast,”
All diabetic patients who fast should be aware of certain facts if they fast during Ramzan, he further added.
All patients with diabetes should consult with their family physician regarding the Ramzan fast and learn the warning symptoms.
Type 2 diabetes will be controlled by diet and may require no special precautions.
Patients at risk of diabetes should avoid overeating to prevent post meal high blood pressure, after the predawn and/or sunset meal.
The exercise program for patients with diabetes on diet control should be modified to avoid lower blood sugar level. Exercise should be done 2 hours after the sunset meal.
Food restriction and dehydration may cause some cardiac risk in the elderly.
The choice of drugs in diabetes may require consultation with a doctor. Drugs that act by increasing the production of insulin are to be preferred. Some patients on metformin may fast safely with minimal complications. However, two-thirds of the total daily dose should be given just before the sunset meal and rest one-third before the predawn meal. Patients on pioglitazone may require no change in dose. Patients on sulfonylureas may require medical clearance before commencing fast.
Insulin dose also needs to be modified during the fast. Usually two doses of insulin, one before each meal, are sufficient.
If the blood sugar falls below 60, then the fast should be immediately broken.
Fast should also be broken if blood sugar rises to more than 300.
Patients should avoid fasting on sick days.
