I am 40 years old and I weigh 95 kgs. I have just started gyming and going normal cardio for 1 hour. I am diabetic as well. Please suggest what should I do to reduce weight and maintain my sugar as well

Your bmi is 40. 9, and you are morbidly obese. You have to persist with a low carbohydrate and low fat high protein diet. Stop all cereals, sugar, bakery products and desserts. Take the white of 2 boiled eggs and lots of fruits and green vegetables and salads. If you don' t loose weight soon you will develop high bp also also. You need bariatric surgery as a permanent solution and it will treat your diabetes also. For more details read the health tips I have written on this website or send me a personal question.

Diabetes Diet

BHMS, CGO

Diabetes Diet

Diabetes diet for Indians- should have the ratio of 60:20:20 for carbs, fats and proteins. 'Per day calorie intake should be between 1,500-1,800 calories with a proportion of 60:20:20 between carbohydrates, fats and proteins, respectively. 'He adds that a diabetes diet should 'have at least two seasonal fruits and three vegetables in a diet plan.'
Though dry fruits may seem like a healthy snack, it is not a good option for diabetics, as the fructose can spike your sugar level. Go for fresh fruits rather than dry fruits for diabetes control (but there are some restrictions... we'll come to it). But you can still opt for nuts as a healthy snack.

diabetes diet for Indians:
- One teaspoon of methi seeds soaked overnight in 100 ml of water is very effective in controlling diabetes.
- Drink tomato juice with salt and pepper every morning on an empty stomach.
- Intake of 6 almonds (soaked overnight) is also helpful in keeping a check on diabetes.

some major diabetes diet pointers that one should follow at home or at a restaurant.
Whole grains, oats, channa atta, millets and other high fibre foods should be included in the meals . If one feels like consuming pasta or noodles, it should always be accompanied with vegetable/sprouts.
Milk is the right combination of carbohydrates and proteins and helps control blood sugar levels. Two servings of milk in a daily diet is a good option.
Diabetes Control: Diabetic Diet Tips
High fibre vegetables such as peas, beans, broccoli and spinach /leafy vegetables should be included in one's diet. Also, pulses with husk and sprouts are a healthy option and should be part of the diet.
Pulses are important in the diet as their effect on blood glucose is less than that of most other carbohydrate containing foods. Vegetables rich in fibre help lowering down the blood sugar levels and thus are healthy.
Good fats such as Omega-3 and monounsaturated fats (MUFA) should be consumed as they are good for the body. Natural sources for these are canola oil, flax seed oil, fatty fish and nuts. These are also low in cholesterol and are trans fat free.

Fruits high in fibre such as papaya, apple, orange, pear and guava should be consumed. Mangoes, bananas, and grapes contain high sugar; therefore these fruits should be consumed lesser than the others.

Small frequent meals:
A large meal gives rise to higher blood sugar in one's body, therefore it is essential to take small frequent meals to prevent both higher and very low blood sugar values and keep them constant. Small in between snacks can be dhokla, fruit, high fibre cookies, butter milk, yogurt, upma/poha with vegetables etc.
A person with diabetes should follow a diet which is low in carbohydrates, high in fibre and contains adequate amounts of proteins, vitamins and minerals; and avoid fatty foods and sweets . He/she should also take frequent small meals (5 meals pattern).
What not to do:
Artificial sweeteners can be used in cakes and sweets for diabetic people (in moderation).
Have lots of fluid.
Limit intake of alcohol.

Non - Vegetarian

In non-vegetarian diet, seafood and chicken can be taken rather than red meat as red meat contains higher amount of saturated fats. Also, patients with high cholesterol should avoid egg yolk and red meat.
The diabetes diet for Indians includes carbohydrates, proteins and fats. As always, a balanced and planned diet can build and improve personal health. A controlled diabetes diet may seem like a drag and bore, but a good cook can add life to a diet. Time to call up mom and experiment with diabetes diets!

I am suffering from diabetes type 2. How to control diabetes. Which fruits are suitable in diabetes.
Mr. Lybrate-user, to control t2 dm you have to start treatment with proper drugs like either oral anti diabetics or insulin or both together depending upon severity of the sugar levels. With out proper modern drugs there is no way of controlling diabetes. Along with drug treatment strict diet control and regular exercise are equally important. Daily at least 1 hour of exercise is needed. It helps in burning extra glucose, reduce insulin resistance and improve insulin action as well as gives a feeling of well being. Fruits to be consumed include water melon, orange, sweet lime, pomegrarnate, apple, pear, papaya and guava.

Dear lybrate-user diabetes is not cureable but can be easily controlled. Diet management and exercise are corner stones if treatment followed by oral drugs and insulin alone or in combination with oral drugs. You have. Mentioned the dtugs and dose being taken. If you have reduced your weight by diet and exercise and the dose being taken was very small only in that case you can reduce or stop medicines under physicians supervision. Ideally you should never stop medicines unless adviced. In few days your sugar will rise and consult your physician.

Hi First of all make sure your diabetes and blood pressure are very well maintained. By keeping them normal you'll be preventing further damage to your eyes. Laser treatment prevents the progression of retinopathy but does not cure it. Sometimes Lazer itself can cause loss of side vision as the new blood vessels are shrunken. There are some injectable growth factors which may help you. Please talk to your ophthalmologist regarding the same.

You need to maintain your tsh between 1 &2 for a proper control. Then you will start losing weight. Also exercise only on empty stomach. That will solve your problem.

I have high sugar,should I eat rice?

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
I have high sugar,should I eat rice?
A diabetic person has to have a balanced diet, that means all three types of foods should be taken in proper proportion. Rice, roti, potatos, bananas, other sereals all have carbohydrate which is finally converted to glucose in the gut. One can definitely eat rice but in smaller quantity along with other foods.

Hi Sir
In my childhood days, I eat lot of sugar & sweets.

Mr. Lybrate-user, first let me clarify that eating sweets does not cause worms in the intestine. Worms such as round worm (big long ones), hook worm, pin worm all occur because of contaminated water or food containing their eggs goes in our intestine and then those eggs get converted to adult worms. Eating unclean food, roadside eating, drinking unfiltered water, unhygienic habits are the cause for most worm infections, the symptom now experienced is mostly due to pin worm (enterobious vermicularis). There are specific drugs which can eradicate them, but these are some of the toughest worms do eradicate.

Dear lybrate user, you need counselling along with your medicines for depression. The counselling process will help you to understand and get rid of the root cause of your depression. Antidepressants may affect your sexual desire, and erection. Once, your negative thoughts reduce, you will need lesser medicines and your body will start functioning normally. Then you will have normal sexual desire and you will not have problems with erection. Consult a counsellor at the earliest. Take care.

I have pain in heel of left foot. No other problem. All tests are normal. Lipid profile, uric acid.
Mr. Lybrate-user, the problem as described appears to be plantar fasciaitis. This occurs due to inflammation of plantar fascia. Occasional pain killers are useful. But most importantly certain exercises like standing on toes, walking a few steps on toes, stretching the ligament by pulling the foot towards you while keeping the lower limb straight, with a belt and holding it in that position for 20 counts, doing the same for a number of time daily, can help. Spot jogging on toes can also help. Using soft foot wear is also useful.
