Hi, I am having diabetes. So How to reduce blood glucose level of 500 mg by natural method. please suggest me.

Hi, I am having diabetes. So How to reduce blood glucose level of 500 mg by natural method. please suggest me.
Mr. Lybrate-user, if any one has 500 mg blood sugar, then insulin injections are a must. There is no way to reduce that kind of sugar by any other means. Severe hyperglycemia causes severe glucotoxicity and insulin producing cells of pancreas are stunned, so there activity is seriously affected. To help them regain ability to produce insulin, immediate reduction is high glucose level by using insulin injection is essential. Once levels are well controlled, then one can shift on to oral anti-diabetes drugs say in about 3 months. But without using insulin or any other drug there no way to reduce such high sugar levels. Plus such high levels also hasten long term complications of diabetes. So my suggestion is please initiate immediate treatment. Thanks for the question.

Mr Bisma, For a person with diabetes a balanced diet is to be given, which should provide exact calories based on his ideal body weight (IBW), blood sugar levels and extent of physical activity. He should avoid sweets, direct sugar and jaggery, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Also should refrain from alcohol and smoking.

I have diabetes - pp 170 - 290. How to control ?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
Pediatrician,
It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch.

Recently I read an article about the effect of wheat on diabetes. In the olden days, in India, diabetics were advised to avoid polished rice, our staple diet, and stick to a diet of wheat and wheat products. The above article highlighted the adverse effects of high-yielding varieties of wheat on diabetes. You will kindly appreciate that traditional varieties of wheat are no longer available. Grateful if you could kindly elaborate.

Though, there are many theories of dietary aspects in diabetes. But, nothing is accepted worldwide. Food preferences varies with region and even in our vast country rice is the staple diet in the east and south whereas wheat is mainly consumed in north and west. There have been studies, but none has shown any correlation with the staple cereal on diabetes prevalence. Many authors have blamed rice and claimed wheat based diet regimen for diabetic reversal, and vice-versa, but did not mention any conclusive evidence for the same. Current guidelines only mentions whole grains with high fibre content rather than processed foods.

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 to control thyroid?

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
How to control thyroid?
You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Tests every 3 to 6 months.

Your thyroid test results show that tsh level is slightly higher than normal limit. It is classified as sub clinical hypothyroidism. Usually treatment is initiated when tsh level crosses 10 milli units / ml. Your bmi is 19.28 kg/m2, which is low. You need to take good balanced diet, exercise regularly, increase the caloric intake as well as protein quantity to build muscle mass. You should avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads and fruits. Always use whole grain flour for chapati and roti, do not use maida.

Mr. lybrate-user, Ideally fasting should be closer to 100 mg or just below, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8, then it is called as good control. To achieve that one has to take appropriate drugs, strict diet & exercise regularly for about 1 hour a day. Brisk walking is one of the better exercise. Thanks.

Hi, The value of blood sugar you have mentioned is random or what? Type-2 Diabetes is a lifestyle related problem, so making a few lifestyle changes can lower the chances of developing type 2 diabetes. -Excess weight is the single most important cause of type 2 diabetes, so control or reduce your weight if you are overweight! -Avoid sedentary lifestyle and start get moving. Brisk walking for a half hour every day reduces the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. -Modify your diet: *Choose whole grains and whole grain products over highly processed carbohydrates. The bran and fiber in whole grains make it more difficult for digestive enzymes to break down the starches into glucose. *Avoid sugary beverages which have a high glycemic load, and drinking more of this sugary stuff is associated with increased risk of diabetes. *Choose good fats instead of bad fats. Good fats found in liquid vegetable oils, nuts, and seeds. Trans fats or bad fats are found in many margarines, packaged baked goods, fried foods, fast or junk foods. *Limit intake of red meat and processed meats. Nuts, seeds, beans, tofu, or poultry are much more healthful protein choices. -Quit smoking. -Moderate alcohol consumption decreases the risk of type 2 diabetes. -Avoid taking unnecessary stress or tension! And keep an optimistic attitude in life! Medication: Take homoeopathic SBL’s Diaboherb medicine/ 3 times a day daily. Home Remedies: Dry the leaves of mango tree and grind to a powder. Mix 1 teaspoon dry powder in a glass of water and drink it daily to reduce high blood sugar levels. Take 2 teaspoons of bitter gourd (karela) juice once a day. One can also increase its use as a cooked vegetable. Take 1 teaspoon of Indian gooseberry (amla) juice mixed with 1 teaspoon of bitter gourd juice twice a day.
