Can diabetic patient take lemon with honey in warm water daily morning? Please clarify. Thanks.
Dear lybrate-user, you are not advised to take honey with warm water. Honey contains 70 calories 10 time sugar. As a diabetic patient carry on your medicines and have physical exercise 30 minutes morning. Take 100% safe ayurveda drugs to control your sugar level. Be attentive to your daily foods. Ok.

Diet to Lower Triglycerides

The purpose of this is to present, to all who want the knowledge, a safe and dependable method through which individuals can lower their elevated blood triglyceride levels. When it comes to health care, you need to stay alert, ask questions, and ultimately rely on yourself for important health care decisions. By applying these guidelines, you will be able to take control of your health care, just as we all should do. You can achieve astonishing results - if you put your mind to it. By having the whole page printed, you can read it in a nice easy chair, away from that glaring monitor.
No miracle cure is needed to reduce triglycerides. Unlike lowering cholesterol - 80 percent of cholesterol is manufactured by the body - for most people, lowering blood triglycerides is as simple as

cutting back on sweets and
getting off the couch.
Excessive sugar intake is no longer about expanding waistlines and tooth decay only. It is a common way to boost blood triglyceride levels.

So it comes back to that old litany - a healthful lifestyle consisting of a good balance of:

dietary low-sugar intake
exercise to maintain an optimal body weight
no smoking, and
moderation of alcohol intake.
It is the same standard treatment recommended at doctor's office for individuals with high cholesterol, high blood pressure and other health concerns. However, the majority of people still remain confused about the most effective way to normalize blood lipid levels.

As a matter of fact, we can't seem to adapt ourselves to all those "dietary and lifestyle plans" for the long haul. We all seem to wait for the Holy Grail of diet and lifestyle to be found.

Definitely, when it comes to triglycerides, foods have a direct impact on their blood levels. What we eat does affect our serum lipids. We don't need new triglyceride-lowering drugs.

For the majority of people, the first line of any treatment for high triglycerides should be a change in diet and, eventually, in lifestyle. But deciding which "diet" to choose is not an easy task, especially for those who have little time for meals. Since triglycerides are circulating forms of fat in the blood, you might think that

a high-fat diet will raise your triglycerides and
a low-fat diet would lower your triglycerides.
This belief turned out not to be true. According to the recent evidence, the most important dietary predictor of triglycerides appears to be carbohydrates, namely,

sugars
starches and
refined (processed) grains.
In other words, what leads to increase in blood triglycerides are mainly diets high in carbohydrates, especially sugar (American Association for Clinical Chemistry).

In fact, the effects of high carbohydrate diet on the triglyceride synthesis by the liver - the major source of blood triglycerides exclusive of chylomicrons - have been known for a long time (J Clin Invest. 1968 April; 47 (4): 712–719).
Avoid Triglyceride Blasters I: Basic Eating Plan

The amount of food you should be eating is about the size of your fist per meal.
Within the diet itself, sugar and alcohol have the greatest influence on triglycerides. Therefore, when it comes to lowering your blood triglycerides, you should:

ELIMINATE or AVOID:

High Triglycerides: Sugars Increase Triglyceride Levels ALL sugars such as:
concentrated sweets: table sugar (sucrose), cane sugar, brown sugar, Turbinado sugar, Demerara sugar, powdered sugar, honey, syrups (especially high fructose corn syrup as a substitute sweetener for sucrose-table sugar added to fruit juices, sodas, and other beverages), preserves, molasses, jams, jellies, and candies
desserts-baked goods: pies, cakes, cookies, crackers, frosting, pastries, doughnuts, ice cream, frozen yogurt, and regular or sweetened gelatin
beverages: fruit juices, fruit drinks, fruit punches, regular sodas, carbonated pop, colas, aid drinks, smoothies, sports drinks, sweetened coffee drinks, mocha, and chocolate drinks
Triglyceride Reducing Diet: Avoid high-fructose fruit - dates, raisins, figs, prunes, grapes, pears, cherries, apples, persimmons, blueberries, bananas, kiwi fruit, watermelon, plums, honeydew melon, grapefruit, orange and pineapple high-fructose, sweet fruits (both fresh or dried): especially dates, raisins, figs, prunes, grapes (red and green), pears, cherries, apples, persimmons, blueberries, bananas, kiwi fruits, watermelons, plums, honeydew melons, grapefruits, oranges and pineapples
other foods: sweetened cereals, flavored yogurts, and sports or energy bars
Triglycerides Lowering Diet: Avoid or Limit Alcohol Alcohol such as
Triglycerides Lowering Diet: Avoid or Limit Beer beer
Triglycerides Lowering Diet: Avoid or Limit Wine wine
hard liquor
liqueurs (usually sweetened alcoholic liquors) and cordials.
PLEASE NOTE: A reduction of alcohol intake is crucial in keeping triglycerides in check - just one drink can increase triglycerides in susceptible people. If you have elevated triglycerides and consume alcohol - a reduced intake or not drinking alcohol at all is strongly advised.

LIMIT:

Triglyceride reducing diet: Limit low-fructose fruit: apricot, nectarines, peaches, cantaloupe, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries low-fructose fruits, such as apricots, nectarines, peaches, cantaloupes, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries
Limit Commercially Raised Beef - The Dangers Posed to Our Health commercially raised red meat, especially fried, charbroiled and barbecued, and changing it to broiled or roasted poultry (turkey, chicken), preferably free-range.
ADD:


dark green leafy and cruciferous vegetables.
By all means, this is NOT another deprivation diet! Although the food "restrictions" advised to help you lower triglycerides may seem hard, it is heartening to realize you can achieve astonishing results without the risky drugs most conventional doctors recommend - if you put your mind to it.

However, after your triglyceride level goes back to normal, you should follow a modified sugar and alcohol diet for the rest of your life.

General Physician,
My diabetes pps comes to 184 is this high? Pl guide what to do. I am taking gemer-2 (two times)
Diabetes affects all organs in the body – Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient and doctor should be in constant touch for regular follow up and advice. The common symptoms are:-Both types of diabetes have some of the same tell-tale warning signs. Hunger and fatigue. Your body converts the food you eat into glucose that your cells use for energy. But your cells need insulin to bring the glucose in. If your body doesn't make enough or any insulin, or if your cells resist the insulin your body makes, the glucose can't get into them and you have no energy. This can make you more hungry and tired than usual. Urinating more often and being thirstier. The average person usually has to pee between four and seven times in 24 hours, but people with diabetes may go a lot more. Dry mouth and itchy skin. Because your body is using fluids to make pee, there's less moisture for other things. You could get dehydrated, and your mouth may feel dry. Dry skin can make you itchy. Blurred vision. Changing fluid levels in your body could make the lenses in your eyes swell up. They change shape and lose their ability to focus. Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult 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), & HbA1C (inform me) 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. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness 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 with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch personally.

Mr. Lybrate-user, the medicines being taken are quite safe, hence can be continued for long time. Whether for life time is difficult to answer. Because as one get old, blood glucose control varies. Similarly kidney function may get affected due to diabetes itself. Periodic assessment is always required. Thanks.

Depending on the type of diabetes you have, your food habits, age and body type your treatment, insulin counts and monitoring should be scheduled.

Relationship between thyroid and weight It has been appreciated for a very long time that there is a complex relationship between thyroid disease, body weight and metabolism. Thyroid hormone regulates metabolism in both animals and humans. Metabolism is determined by measuring the amount of oxygen used by the body over a specific amount of time. If the measurement is made at rest, it is known as the basal metabolic rate (BMR). Indeed, measurement of the BMR was one of the earliest tests used to assess a patient’s thyroid status. Patients whose thyroid glands were not working were found to have low BMRs, and those with overactive thyroid glands had high BMRs. Later studies linked these observations with measurements of thyroid hormone levels and showed that low thyroid hormone levels were associated with low BMRs and high thyroid hormone levels were associated with BMRs. Most physicians no longer use BMR due to the complexity in doing the test and because the BMR is subject to many other influences other than the thyroid state. Relationship between bmr and weight Differences in BMRs are associated with changes in energy balance. Energy balance reflects the difference between the amount of calories one eats and the amount of calories the body uses. If a high BMR is induced by the administration of drugs, such as amphetamines, animals often have a negative energy balance which leads to weight loss. Based on such studies many people have concluded that changes in thyroid hormone levels, which lead to changes in BMR, should also cause changes in energy balance and similar changes in body weight. However, BMRs are not the whole story relating weight and thyroid. Thus, the relationship between metabolic rates, energy balance, and weight changes is very complex. There are many other hormones (besides thyroid hormone), proteins, and other chemicals that are very important for controlling energy expenditure, food intake, and body weight. Because all these substances interact on both the brain centers that regulate energy expenditure and tissues throughout the body that control energy expenditure and energy intake, we cannot predict the effect of altering only one of these factors (such as thyroid hormone) on body weight as a whole. As a consequence, at this time, we are unable to predict the effect of changing thyroid state on any individual’s body weight.
