I am 76 years old person and pre diabetic diagnosed in December 2015 and presently I wanted to know that dry dates, chuhara, can be eaten by me or not. I got three replies and all are different. One doctor said it can be eaten, second said it is not advisable and third says that it can be eaten once or twice in a week but none has mentioned the quantity. The reply has not been given by any diabetes specialist. Which answer I should take as correct. Please advise. Regards,

Dear lybrate-user, I can understand your confusion. Dates are sweet and high calorie food. In diabetes everything can be eaten but in moderation, calories count per day has to be maintained. The best person to answer your question is a diet specialist. But generally moderation is the key regards.

If someone is diabetic, aged above 70, male, weight is 95 Kgs. My current Creatinine level is 1.8. I know, I should avoid eating Mutton / Chicken / Fish (In this order ) but is it OK to have a home made mug of Clear Chicken Soup on daily basis ? Secondly, How to control / bring down creatinine level ?

MBBS, PG Diploma in HIV Medicine
General Physician,
Hello Mr. Lybrate-user. Your creatinine clearance is 51.5 ml/min according to the information provided by you. 50 ml/min is borderline and you need to take care of it. You have not mentioned whether you have any other co morbidities like diabetes and hypertension etc. If do then you must keep them in control to reduce the damage to the kidneys. You have to avoid red meat completely. But can have sea food as suggested by your physician. You need to do regular exercise control your weight. A simple walking for 30 mins morning and evening is sufficient. Check your creatinine and urea levels regularly and don't hesitate to consult physician immediately. Contact if need further assistance.

Diabetes and its Impact on Your Eyesight

Diabetologist, Vadodara
Diabetes and its Impact on Your Eyesight

If you are diabetic, know that high blood sugar level can take a severe toll on your eyes in the form of blurry vision, cataract, glaucoma and retinopathy, if left unchecked. It can even lead to partial/complete blindness in young adults. Nonetheless, a strict control over your blood sugar count would prove effective in preventing such eye complications in the long run.

How does diabetes affect the eyes?

  1. Blurry Vision: Diabetes can cause swelling of the eye and damage to your vision. In case you are already using glasses, it might bring about fluctuations in your optical power. Once your blood sugar count gets back to the normal level; that is within the range of 70 to 130 milligrams per deciliter, your vision would be normal again; though this might take some time (about 3 months).

  2. Cataract: Eye lens works just like a camera, helping you to focus on a particular object. Cataract is a condition wherein this lens gets clouded with debris. Nevertheless, diabetic patients are more vulnerable to cataracts as compared to others. It has to be removed with a surgery wherein an artificial lens replaces the blurry eye lens.

  3. Glaucoma: Pressure starts building up within the eyes when fluids do not get drained out normally. This damages the nerves and blood vessels, thereby causing vision loss, blurred vision, watery eyes and headaches. Generally, glaucoma can be cured with laser, surgery, eye drops or medicines. Medications do help in alleviating eye pressure, reducing excessive fluid production and facilitating drainage. Having said that, diabetics are likely to develop neovascular glaucoma, a rare complication wherein new blood vessels form on the iris (the ring-shaped colored region in the eye), obstructing the normal fluid flow and further increasing the eye pressure.

  4. Diabetic Retinopathy: The retina is a cluster of cells behind the eyes that absorb light and converts them into images which are then transmitted to the brain through the optic nerve. High blood sugar levels damage the tiny blood vessels of the retina, leading to a condition called Diabetic retinopathy.

The stages of diabetic retinopathy

The retina requires a constant blood supply via a network of small blood vessels. In due course of time, a high blood sugar count might damage those blood vessels; primarily across three stages:

  1. Background Retinopathy: This is a condition wherein tiny lumps develop in your blood vessels, causing slight bleeding that usually does not affect your eye sight.

  2. Pre-proliferative Retinopathy: This is a condition characterized by significant bleeding from the eyes as a result of the blood vessels being severely affected.

  3. Proliferative Retinopathy: Proliferative retinopathy is a condition wherein new blood vessels and scar tissues that bleed easily develop on the retina, leading to vision loss.

Are you at risk?

The risks of Diabetic retinopathy increase if one is suffering from diabetes. Apart from this, certain other factors could also aggravate the chances of this disorder:

  1. Rise or fall in blood sugar

  2. Rise in the blood pressure level

  3. High cholesterol

  4. Pregnancy

  5. Excessive consumption of tobacco

When should you call a doctor?

  1. When you experience spots in your vision

  2. In case of blurred and fluctuating vision

  3. Impaired color vision

  4. Sudden loss of vision

  5. Redness and pain in the eyes

These signs serve as an early wake up call. However, it’s not mandatory for these signs to indicate towards diabetic retinopathy.

How to protect your eyes from diabetes and keep them healthy?

  1. Get your eyes checked periodically and try and maintain a steady blood sugar count.

  2. Take the prescribed medicines on time.

  3. Try to achieve and then maintain optimal weight levels.

  4. Avoid a sedentary lifestyle and engage in some sort of physical activity.

  5. Control your cholesterol levels by picking the right kind of foods.

  6. Abstain from smoking and limit alcohol consumption.

  7. Opt for a healthy diet comprising of green and leafy vegetables, oily fish, tuna, salmon; protein rich foods such as beans, nuts and eggs; citrus fruits such as oranges; pork and oysters. 

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

What precautions should I take to maintain blood sugar level so that I can avoid diabetes?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes t2, is a preventable disease. To avoid that one needs to adapt a modified life style. Which means: 1) maintain near normal weight, exercise regularly for at least 1 hour a day. 2) avoid too much of sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, sweetened aerated drinks, pastries, fructose corn syrup containing products and high fat milk products. 3) consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads and fruits. 4) avoid alcohol and smoking. Your caloric intake should be just exact to the need based on ideal body weight and extent of daily exercise.

Hello Your HbA1C value is very good. Which means your blood sugar is under good control because your taking the tablet. If you stop it, blood sugars will increase. Maybe after 3 months if your HbA1C reduces further, instead of stopping the medicine, dosage should be reduced.

I am 54 years old. I am facing problem regarding pain in foot nas(veins) only one when I walking , this problem face for last 2 years also some diabetes so pls advice me.

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science

Hye, thanks for the query. For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - the sugar levels will fluctuate depending on what you ate or did not eat, stress levels and activity levels. You have to try and manage a balanced carb intake. Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. You have to eat 3 main and 3 mid meals. Your diet must include whole grains, seasonal fruits, vegetables, small amounts of nuts and dairy and pulses or dals or lean meats like chicken or fish and egg. Starchy vegetables need to be planned into the diet. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Avoid exercise if sugar levels are above 250 mg/dl. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

French Fries are Worst for Diabetics

M.Sc. in Dietetics and Food Service Management , Post Graduate Diploma In Computer Application, P.G.Diploma in Clinical Nutrition & Dietetics , B.Sc.Clinical Nutrition & Dietetics
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
French Fries are Worst for Diabetics
french fries are worst for diabetics:

French fries as" little carbohydrate sponges soaked in fat" at 25 grams of fat, 500 calories, and over 63 grams of carbohydrates, a large serving of french fries can wreak havoc on blood sugar. The american diabetes association notes that starchy foods like potatoes, corn, and peas are" great sources of vitamins, minerals, and fiber" but recommends skipping those with added fat or sodium. You can test your blood sugar two hours after eating to find out what effect any particular food has on your blood sugar.

Have this instead: fries are usually the default option when ordering a burger or sandwich, but most restaurants will swap in fresh fruit or a side salad if you ask.

MD - General Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Karimnagar
Hello, if all ecg, echo and angio are normal nothing extra needs to be done. Continue anti diabetes and anti htn medications. Cardiologist may have given ecospirin and statin to continue. Life style modifications like low oil foods. Use olive oil or canola oil, or safflower oil which have unsaturated fats. Exercise daily 30 min per day. Not to eat pickles and salted foods, decrease non veg, fish can be taken weekly once, decrease amount of salt in diet. Optimisation of ant diabetes and anti htn medications are required.

What is a best treatment for the diabetes patient for diabetes type two, insulin is a best ya other is good medicine?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus occurs (t2) either due to lack of insulin or resistance to its action or both. In t1 there is total absence of insulin, beta cells of islets of langerhans in pancreas do not secrete any insulin. Since main reason is insulin deficiency, best drug for treatment is insulin. However, in t2 initially metformin is used, which helps in reducing resistance to insulin action and also helps in weight reduction. Then other drugs known as secretogogues (insulin secretion stimulators) are used. If diabetes is very severe with very high blood sugar levels and hba1c% >9, then insulin is preferred. So it depends on individual case and needs of each patient. There are multiple choices now, recent addition to treatment has been sglt-2 inhibitors, which act independent of insulin.
