You need to take a balanced diet. If you want to control please follow a diet chart. Eat more vegetables. Avoid low glycemic foods. Eat flax seed. Eat frequently but low calorie. Use rice bran, soya, sesame oil of doctor's choice for cooking. Use 15-20 ml oil/day.

CDIABT, MBBS

I am 48 years old. I am facing a problem of diabetes since 1 year. Please advise me about my diet.
For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, 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.

What precautions should a person take when he is suffering from diabetes.

BDS
Endocrinologist,
What precautions should a person take when he is suffering from diabetes.
Hi . Apart from all precautions you should also take care of your oral hygiene. Patients with diabetes are very much prone to periodontal problems. Make sure to brush twice daily and use mouthwash. And do visit dentist every 6 months for routine dental checkup.

Mr. Lybrate-user, to my knowldge, alcohol in any form and any quantity is bad for health and more so in a diabetes patient. Whether it is beer or other forms of alcohol, it is better if avoided. If still one wants to consume, then it is his choice, there is no medical recommendation. Thanks.

I have sugar. My Age is 51 years. Please advise where I can eat everything and sugar remain in control.
If you have confirmed diabetes, then treatment with antidiabetic medicine is a must, which I am sure must be on. Please tell me what are current fasting and pp sugar levels and hba1c%, because unless diabetes (blood sugar levels) is under excellent control it is difficult to avoid long term problems of various complications. As regards" eating everything" for a diabetic person there will always be restrictions in food intake like avoiding sweets, direct sugar, deep fried foods and certain fruits like mango, chikoo, banana & grapes. Even your food intake has to in relation to body's requirement based on ideal body weight. (ideal body weight = height in cms - 100 x 0.9 = kgs). If you are a sedentary type of person then calories allowed would be 25 kcal /kg / day. So far a diabetic person restricted food intake is the only choice.

Yes homoeopathy med will help for sure. Without side effects. Eating jambola fruit (nerale) can help control sugar level. All other fruits you can take in limited quantity it doesn't control sugar but doesn't increase it. Anything tat you take in large quantity increases the sugar level.

My mother hv Uric acid & thyroid problem. So, wht precaution should she take & wht are the food restrictions ?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS

My mother hv Uric acid & thyroid problem. So, wht precaution should she take & wht are the food restrictions ?
Following are the suggestions for your mother:- The first thing you should do is to eat foods that are high in fiber, This is because fiber rich foods absorb uric acid from the blood. Your kidneys then 'throw' out the excess uric acid. Try to eat Oatmeal, Spinach, cauliflowers and Isabgol in milk if possible.  Please use olive oil to cook your food. Kindly avoid vegetable oils because they become unhealthy when heated twice. This leads to rancid fat in the body. These destroy vitamin E, that in turn controls uric acid levels. Olive oil also curbs uric acid by itself.  Vitamin C chewable tablets taken 500 mg daily lower uric acid levels within 4 to 8 weeks.  Try to stop intake of sweets, cakes and pastries. Saturated fats are bad for you.  Many fruits have got potent anti-oxidant properties, like celery seeds, grapes and tomatoes, and these prevent harmful toxins from attacking your organs - releasing uric acid.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda,
Please advice on BGR-34 for diabetes patient. Can allopathic medicines minimised after taking this medicine?
Lybrate-user regards from me. Diabetes is of two types. Insulin dependent and non insulin dependent. Bgr34 is a ayurvedic medicine for non insulin dependent only. If you use it regularly it may lessen your dose of allopathic medicine. You should follow dietary restrictions properly and should do 40 min walk daily. Thanks.

According to experts now it is compulsory to screen every woman who wants to become pregnant for thyroid function. Because pregnancy increases the possibility of getting hypothyroidism. If a lady is having hyothyroidism then conception is unlikely to occur. If it does occur then the fetal development is affected, out come of pregnancy can be bad. The new born may have low iq.

What is the symptoms of thyroid my weight is increasing I eat very little is it thyroid tell me.

What is the symptoms of thyroid my weight is increasing I eat very little is it thyroid tell me.
Mr. Lybrate-user, hypothyroidism does increase weight. But other symptoms also are there like lethargy, tiredness, early fatigue, intolerance to cold, slow heart rate, swelling of face and lower limbs, joint pains, inability to concentrate, difficulty in speech, anxiety and depression etc. Looking at your height and weight you are having a grade 3 obesity with 44.54 kg /m2. This is probably not due to only hypothyroidism, you are probably having this (over weight problem) condition since a long time. This is a seriuos situation, please look inti it, also bet your thyroid test done to check if hypothyroidism is present. Thanks for the question.

I am having gestational diabetes, sugar is high, please suggest diet plan for sugar control.
Hi First of all congratulations for your little one. Check your blood sugars atleast once a day. Your fasting blood sugar should be between 70-90 mg/dl and after meals it should be 110-140 mg/dl. Have small meals every 2-3 hrs. Eat high protein diet like lots of sprouts, paneer, channa. Avoid carbohydrates like rice based food, pastas, biscuits. Drink lots of water and eat in lots of salads. Don't take fruit juices, eat the fruit. Drink atleast 2 glasses of milk a day. Since your blood sugar is high, do not control it by starving or dieting too much, this can affect your little ones health. Eat adequately but eat the right food. If there is a need for insulin go with it, do not hesitate as insulin is very safe. Lastly exercise regularly.

Hi, the chances of conception naturally are very less in such a problem. You should immediately consult an ivf specialist because your amh value is also less which means that the ovarian reserve is low.
