I am 54 yrs old suffering from diabetes, advice food schedule.

Advanced Aesthetics
Ayurveda,
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.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in salt, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise.

To help manage your diabetes, your meals need to be: • Regular and spread evenly throughout the day • Lower in fat, particularly saturated fat • If you take insulin or diabetes tablets, you may need to have between meal snacks Matching the amount of food you eat with the amount you burn up each day is important. Not putting too much fuel in your body (keeping food intake to moderate serves) is vital to getting the right balance. Along with healthy eating, regular physical activity can help you to manage your blood glucose levels, reduce your blood fats (cholesterol and triglycerides) and maintain a healthy weight. . It is important to recognise that one diet does not fit everyone with diabetes. So my slogan for all diabetics is 'One Diet does Not Fit All'. So every individual diabetic should consult a dietician to plan a way according to individual body,tastes and requirements.Only then can you control your blood sugar levels. Fat Fats have the highest energy (kilocalorie) content of all foods. Eating too much fat can make you put on weight, which may make it more difficult to manage blood glucose levels. While it is important to try and reduce fat in your diet, especially if you are trying to lose weight, some fat is good for health. Saturated fat It is important to limit saturated fat because it raises your LDL (‘bad’) cholesterol levels. Saturated fat is found in animal foods like fatty meat, milk, butter and cheese. Vegetable fats that are saturated include palm oil (found in solid cooking fats, snack foods or convenience foods) and coconut products such as copha, coconut milk or cream. To reduce saturated fat: • Choose reduced or low-fat milk, yoghurt, ice-cream and custard • Choose lean meat and trim any fat off before cooking • Remove the skin from chicken (where possible, before cooking) • Avoid using butter, cream, sour cream, coconut milk, coconut cream and hard cooking margarines • Limit the amount of cheese you eat and try reduced-fat and low-fat varieties • Limit pastries, cakes, puddings, chocolate and cream biscuits to special occasions • Limit pre-packaged biscuits, packet snacks, cakes, frozen and convenience meals • Limit the use of processed deli meats ( chicken loaf, salami etc) and sausages • Avoid fried takeaway foods such as chips, fried chicken and battered fish and choose BBQ chicken (without the skin) and grilled fish instead • Avoid pies, sausage rolls and pastries • Rather than creamy sauces or dressings, choose those that are based on tomato, soy or other low fat ingredients. As some tomato and soy sauces can be high in salt, choose low-salt varieties or make them yourself without any added salt. • Limit creamy style soups. Polyunsaturated & monounsaturated fats Eating small amounts of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats can help ensure you get the essential fatty acids and vitamins your body needs. Polyunsaturated fats include: • Polyunsaturated margarines (check the label for the word ‘polyunsaturated’) • Sunflower, safflower, soybean, corn, cottonseed, grapeseed and sesame oils • The fat found in oily fish such as herring, mackerel, sardine, salmon and tuna. Monounsaturated fats include: • Canola® and olive oils • Some margarines • Avocado. Seeds, nuts, nut spreads and peanut oil contain a combination of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat. Ideas for enjoying healthy fats • Stir-fry meat and vegetables in a little canola® oil (or oil spray) with garlic or chilli • Dress a salad or steamed vegetables with a little olive oil and lemon juice or vinegar • Sprinkle sesame seeds on steamed vegetables • Use linseed bread and spread a little canola margarine • Snack on a handful of unsalted nuts, or add some to a stir-fry or salad • Spread avocado on sandwiches and toast, or add to a salad • Eat more fish (at least three times a week) because it contains a special type of fat (omega-3) that is good for your heart. • Do more dry roasting, grilling, microwaving and stir-frying in a non-stick pan • Avoid deep fried, battered and crumbed foods Carbohydrate I recommend to eat a moderate amount of carbohydrates for all Diabetics means, on a plate, approx, 1/4 of the plate should be carbohydrate foods. Carbohydrate foods are the best energy source for your body. When they are digested they break down to form glucose in the bloodstream. Insulin takes the glucose out of the blood and deposits it into the muscles, liver and other cells in the body where it is used to provide energy. A regular carbohydrate intake is required to provide our body and brain with instant energy. Most foods contain carbohydrate and also provide us with fibre, vitamins and minerals. Very low carbohydrate diets are not recommended for people with diabetes. If you eat regular meals and spread your carbohydrate foods evenly throughout the day, you will help maintain your energy levels without causing large rises in your blood glucose levels. If you take insulin or diabetes tablets, you may need to have between meal snacks. Discuss this with your doctor or dietician. All carbohydrate foods are digested to produce glucose but they do so at different rates – some slow, some fast. The glycemic index or GI is a way of describing how a carbohydrate containing food affects blood glucose levels. The type of carbohydrate you eat is very important as some can cause higher blood glucose after eating. The best combination is to eat moderate amounts of carbohydrate and include high fibre foods that also have a low GI. Sugar A healthy eating plan for diabetes can include some sugar. However, it is important to consider the nutritional value of the foods you eat. In general, foods with added sugars should be consumed sparingly (manufacturers sometimes use fruit juice or other sources of sugar to avoid using table sugar). In particular, high energy foods such as sweets, lollies and standard soft drinks should not be consumed on a regular basis. Some sugar may also be used in cooking and many recipes can be modified to use less than the amount stated or substituted with an alternative sweetener. Select recipes that are low in fat (particularly saturated fat) and contain some fibre. Alternative sweeteners The use of intense sweeteners by people with diabetes is preferable to use of natural sugars. Protein Choose protein foods that are also low in fat. This will help to reduce the amount of saturated fat you eat. Protein foods include lean meat, poultry without the skin, seafood, eggs (not fried), unsalted nuts, soy products such as tofu and pulses (dried beans and lentils). Herbs, condiments & drinks You can use these following foods nd add flavour and variety to your meals. • Herbs, spices, garlic, chilli, lemon juice, vinegar and other seasonings. • Products labelled ‘low calorie’ (e.g. low calorie/diet soft drinks, low calorie jelly). • Tea, coffee, herbal tea, water, soda water, plain mineral water. • Limit your alcohol intake if you choose to drink

Endocrinologist,
How can we prevent from diabetes?
Mr t2dm can be prevented by following a strict modified life style, like daily exercise for more than 1 h, maintaining weight near normal for the height (ideal body weight = height in centimeters - 100 x 0.9). Then consume required quantity of calories based on ibw and physical activity. Plus avoid smoking and alcohol. In addition no direct sweets and deep fried foods. If this is followed t2dm can be prevented.

Hello lybrate-user. Sorry about your father's eye problem. Diabetes and blood pressure are disorders of the blood vessels. They tend to affect most of the organs in the body including the eyes. In the eye, diabetes/ blood pressure may lead to bursting of blood vessels and subsequent bleeding into the eye. This would in turn reduce the vision of the eye. In some cases, it could be improved by surgery or injection in the eye whereas in other cases, it would be irreversible. Thus, the best guide would be a retina specialist. Take the opinion and follow the advice given by the retina specialist. Feel free to contact me for further assistance. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care-

MD - Pathology
Pathologist, Noida
You seem to have polydipsia meaning increased thirst , which is one of the symptoms of diabetes, but, your blood levels suggest otherwize. Fasting sugar levels are normal, whereas PP sample is mildy raised but is considered as less specific. Based on this , you are currently not a diabetic patient but you come in the danger zone. Please repeat your fasting sugar levels after strict overnight fasting of 12 hours and also get a HbAic test done. Also get fasting insulin level done. Your reports will decide further course of action.
