Can high fibre be useful in diabetes ?
Hi , there are two types of fiber soluble and insoluble. The soluble fiber helps in controlling the blood sugar spikes and hence its very useful in maintaining the sugar levels.

dear be fortunate u have come to know of your diabetic and high cholesterol status well before it could create havoc inside your body..many of the patients are diagnosed diabetic only when they land up in hospitals due to some other reason like heart attack...so be thankful for not falling into that category no you are not heart patient as of now ....and you can prevent yourself from that by taking regular medications.. this is more likely type 2 diabetes and u have to take lifelong medications for that...but be thankful for living in an era whwere we have so many medications to take other than only insulin...your detailed reports like LDL levels are required before prescribing any medications... for diabetes you can take tab galvus met 50/1000 mg twice daily after meals and tab GP1 daily before breakfast ...keep a check on blood sugar daily .as of now..buy a glucometer..take tab atorlip 10 mg at bedtime for high cholesterol levels...avoid sugar rich food and fruits...

Can people type 2 diabetic drink alcohol and smoking cigarettes? What is side effect? Liver function? Heart function? And lung?

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
Can people type 2 diabetic drink alcohol and smoking cigarettes? What is side effect? Liver function? Heart function?...
Mr. lybrate-user, A person with diabetes is advised to avoid smoking and alcohol. The reason is smoking tobacco, affects blood vessels, lungs as in any other person. But a person with diabetes has much weaker immune system, is prone to lung infections and cardiac problems. As regards alcohol, it gives empty calories, person fails to recognise hypoglycemic situation. Plus it affects nutrition, affects liver enzymes & can cause severe liver damage. Thanks.

Make her to lie on abdomen - place two pillows under hip region - ask her to lie for 15-20 minutes daily or you may repeat 2-3 times daily. It may help reduce sciatica. Ask her to do lie on back - bend knees - 1. Take towards chest and relax - repeat for 25 times, 2. Take the knees towards sides - repeat for 25 times; this may relieve from spondylitis. Follow diet controlling thyroid problem - do regular walking for 30 minutes.

This means that the blood sugar levels continue to be high, threatening the normal functioning of the body. According to Ayurveda There are 20 forms of Diabetes : 4 are due to Vata, 6 result from Pitta, and 10 are caused by Kapha. But Diabetes (MADHUMEHA) is.Mainly kapha dosha disease.

Dear, your sugars are well controlled with this therapy. Hba1c is also excellently controlled. But I observe that your bmi is slightly higher. In this context piopod 15 may lead to weight gain. Although it's a very good medicine to make insulin act better, weight gain negates it's good effect. You can use other newer drugs with good track records in place of piopod. But if you are comfortable with existing treatment then all the three medicines are available as a single tablet too which can reduce the number of tablets and expenses too. Also amaryl 1 mg may make you feel low on sugar sometimes manifesting as excessive hunger or tremors. So observe sugar levels at home at various different time i. E before lunch, before dinner or randomly at 6 pm. This will help you to detect low sugar if any.

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.

What is Diabetes? What are the symptoms of one getting it? Is it hereditary? What are the preventive Measures for it?
Diabetes is a disease occurring due to either lack of insulin or resistance to its action. It causes high blood glucose, which affects almost every system in the body, like eyes (retina), kidneys, small and large blood vessels, nervous system, heart and lower limbs particularly feet. It is a disease that runs in the family. However, t2 dm is also a prventable disease, by adapting a modified lifestyle. Which means regular exercise, diet control, avoiding alcohol and smoking.

I am a diabetic patient, how to get rid of it?

Dietitian/Nutritionist,
I am a diabetic patient, how to get rid of it?
Do let me know your hba1c value? also you need to provide me your daily food intake details. There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed: take high fiber prescribed diet which includes soluble fibre like apple, isabgol etc. Get more physical activity. eat a balanced diet which includes whole grains and excludes all refined products like maida as prescribed. if you're overweight, diabetes prevention may hinge on weight loss. Every pound you lose can improve your health, and you may be surprised by how much. Participants in one large study who lost a modest amount of weight around 7 percent of initial body weight and exercised regularly reduced the risk of developing diabetes by almost 60 percent.

What is the symptom of diabetes. And how to control the sugar level in human body?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
What is the symptom of diabetes. And how to control the sugar level in human body?
Increased thirst, appetite and urination are the early symptoms. 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 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 with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take.

Lybrate-user, if you have hypothyroidism, then if that is not well controlled then weight gain will continue. So first thing is to bring tsh levels down to 3 to 4 milli units/l, by aking appropriate dose of thyroxine. Then your efforts to control weight will be successful. It is not correct to say once weight gain occurs then it can not be lost.

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.
