I am 64 yrs old male, I have Diabetes between 150 to 200. what should I do?
Hi 1.Eat a lot of non-starchy vegetables, beans, and fruits such as apples, pears, peaches, and berries. 2.Even tropical fruits like bananas, mangoes, and papayas tend to have a lower glycemic index than typical desserts 3.Eat grains in the least-processed state possible: “unbroken,” such as whole-kernel bread, brown rice, and whole barley, millet. 4.Limit white potatoes and refined grain products to small side dishes. 5.Limit concentrated sweets—including high-calorie foods with a low glycemic index, such as ice cream—to occasional treats. Eliminate sugar-sweetened drinks. 6.Eat a healthful type of protein at most meals, such as beans, fish, or skinless chicken.Choose foods with healthful fats, such as olive oil, nuts (almonds, walnuts), and avocados. 7.Limit saturated fats from dairy and other animal products. Completely eliminate partially hydrogenated fats (trans fats), which are in fast food and many packaged foods. 8.Have three meals and one or two snacks each day, and don’t skip breakfast. 9.Eat slowly and stop when full

Amla powder along with some other ingredients is used by people with diabetes. Amla basically gives a good deal of vit c. But realy no idea as to what role it has in treatment of diabetes. Most often these herbal remedies are used as supportive treatments along with proper anti diabetes drugs. Unless proper anti diabetes drug is taken blood sugar levels will not come down.

Hello, It is difficult give the dosage based on the information given. If you are on Glargine 40 units at night, then oral antidiabetes drugs plus another combination like Wosulin 30/70 (it is 30 /70 not 30/50), it is a bit odd. Because you are already on a long acting compound. So ideally there should be a short acting one to check post breakfast and post lunch surge. Another aspect the mentioned glucose levels are not too high, therefore Glargine and oral drugs should be enough to give a better control Ideally fasting target should be closer to 100 mg & PP 150 to 160 mg. Plus HbA1c% <6.8. Thanks.

Month of Ramzan starting today and every muslims will be in fasting for 14 hours a day. What type of foods should be consumed at the breaking of fasting and what items should be also selected for drinking. What diet should I follow for these 30 days for good health and as we know fasting is even good for health.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Month of Ramzan starting today and every muslims will be in fasting for 14 hours a day. What type of foods should be ...
Fasting for 14 hours will built up acidity in your stomach. So when trying to break the fast take bland food devoid of spices and acid content (even fruits). Regarding liquids many juices, aerated drinks and health drinks can worsen acidity and induce gastric or small intestinal spasm, so preferable with be milk, that too after a bland diet.

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
Mr. lybrate-user, If you have hypothyroidism and taking thyroxine, then ideally TSH should be maintained betweei 3 to4 mU/L, to remain free from all the symptoms related to it. So if TSH level goes up, then there is a need for increasing the dose of thyroxine. Thanks.
