Myths And Facts About Diabetes!

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

Myths And Facts About Diabetes!

 1) Diabetes is curable :

Diabetes is  mainly due deficiency of Insulin (hormone produced by Beta cells of pancreas), plus resistance to action of insulin, overweightor obesity  and inactivity. Therefore, to treat diabetes we need drugs that initiate insulin secretion, reduce insulin resistance. In some cases  insulin itself. Plus dietary control and regular exercise to maintain normal weight or reduce excess weight. Hence it can only be effectively controlled. Cure is not possible.

2) Eating Sugar or Sweets causes Diabetes :

It is incorrect to say that eating sweets and / or sugar causes diabetes. Basically excess food intake will lead to excess production of glucose. That puts excess load on insulin producing cells in pancreas due glucotoxicity. Also due to central obesity  the fat around internal organs causes lipotoxicity affecting the beta cells. Therefore, excess food intake in general and weight gain  are the reasons for diabetes.

3) Jaggery is better or safe in diabetes :

Jaggery and sugar both are essentially same. Both contain sucrose, as they are prepared from sugar cane juice. Hence eating either of these will increase blood glucose considerably. In jaggery there are some vitamins and a few antioxidants. But both are bad for a diabetic person.

4) Rice should not be eaten in diabetes :

Not really true. Because in south India this is the major or at times only main food. Rice has a high glycemic index so gets converted to glucose rapidly. So polished rice is not good. Brown rice is better. Quantity should be regulated. All other cereals  also are converted  glucose after digestion. 

5)Allopathic Medications Damage Kidneys, so go for either Ayurvedic or Homeopathic Drugs :

In fact diabetes itself affects kidney, particularly the filtering membrane of glomerulurous  (a filtering unit in the kidney).   Even when diabetes fairly well controlled, kidney does get affected. The drugs used to treat diabetes  help in overcoming kidney damage. Therefore it is wrong to think that modern drugs cause kidney damage. In fact some of the other drugs contain heavy metals (Bhasmas), which can be harmful to the kidney.

6) Sugar intake is essential for body :

Some people keep asking that eating sugar is very necessary for getting energy for the body tissues. This is not at all true.  Because all the cereals like rice, jowar, wheat, ragi, bajra and other millets, contain starch as the main ingredient. Hence intake of each of these foods  provides glucose after digestion. So there is no separate need for taking sugar.

Few things to be remembered and practiced are :

  • Always use whole grain flour, as it contains a good amount of biber content for making chapati or roti.
  • Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads with every meal.
  • Consider fruits and green leafy vegetables as part of regular snacks
  • Take small meals on more number of occasion to avoid glucose surge.
  • Avoid Maida and foods made from it. It is probably worst kind of food that one can consume.
  • Form healthy food habits.

My mother is 55 years old and is suffering from loss of breath even after a short work. Got her thyroid tested and it was 11.5. Please advise what kind of medical treatment needs to be provided also, if there is a home remedy.

MD PULMONARY, DTCD
Pulmonologist, Faridabad
The report 11.5 you mean tsh or any othe rtest. If tsh it is on higher side will need treatment. For breathlessness if wt is 84kg and lbs, then it can be due to weight. Get her bp recorded ecg and pft done to r/o any cardiac problem and asthma.

Loose your extra weight this will not only lower your blood but also helps lowering your blood pressure, cholesterol too. Split your meals into 6 times per day and eating fair and consistent amount. No long gapes and skipping of meals. Never miss out breakfast. No overeating. Timely and balanced diet is as important as regular medicine intake to control diabetes. Complex carbohydrates and fibre should be included in diet. Do regular exercise atleast 15 minutes.

I am diabetic patient aged 62 years. Daily I used to walk around 6 KM and taking medicine and food control. Inspite of that my sugar will be 220 and 170 Why? I understand that with walk there will be more relief for diabetics. I never talk rice daily only once in a month and thrice in a month. Morning iddlis, afternoon Chappatis, biscuits and Night also I used to take Chappatis, but stopped due to doctors advise and started taking iddlis or dosa.

Mr. lybrate-user Moorthy, Thanks for the query. The blood glucose levels mentioned show that diabetes is not at all in control. This means either the medication being taken is inadequate or the food intake is much more than that is needed plus there is less physical activity. All these in combination are contributing to the uncontrolled high blood glucose. Following are a few of my observations: 1) Your ideal body weight should be 58.5 kgs. 2) The caloric intake has to be based on this weight (58.5 X 20 cal = 1170 calories per day). 2) This means your total food intake has to provide only this many calories in a day. 3) This means about 2 to 3 idlis in breakfast, or just 2 small dosas, lunch and dinner also have to be on the similar lines. Not more than 1 chapati or roti, a small bowl of rice, plus vegetables, salads, plus curd one cup. 4) No biscuits or any other item made of maida. To me your over all food intake is much higher than needed. Plus there has to be walking as you have been doing. If you have any doubts please come back. Thanks.

Dear Doctors, It is mentioned on social media that 2-3 table spoon of olive oil at bed time and early morning gives amazing results for diabetic patients. Does it hold any truth? Thanks.

1. Olive oil is not a panacea (cure) for Diabetes. 2. 5-6 Tablespoons of oil will add 600-720 (120 cals per tbsp) additional calories to your intake every day. 3. That can lead to added 2-3 KGS on your body every month. 4. Additional weight will lead to increased level of sugar. 5. To manage Diabetes you need to reduce extra calories coming from carbs and oils.

Your sugar levels need to be more in control and small amount of fruit is okay but suga control need to be proper.

My opinion would be to wait. Meanwhile, a salt restricted diet, avoidance of junk food, avoidance of smoking/tobacco, regular exercise and adequate sleep should be ensured. A regular monitoring of blood pressure is essential.
