Diabetes has nothing to do with eating more and less amount of sweets. But there are other risk factors for diabetes such as: family history of diabetes overweight physical inactivity increasing age high blood pressure ethnicity.

Diabetes can occur during pregnancy called as gestational diabetes. There is no way that diabetes can come to you from your husband. If at all it is transferred from your parents to you. If diabetes is confirmed then it is necessary to control the sugar urgently by taking insulin injections only. Blood sugar should be maintained between 90 to 120 mg. This is necessary for proper development of fetus and positive outcome of pregnancy.

I have diabetes and I can not eat as must have because I do not have enough money.
If you think smart then you can eat the simple yet routine staple food that you had been eating traditionally. Eat vegetables and fruits which are available according to the season and are cheaper. Do search the internet to know about nutrition value of various types of foods. At the same time you should focus on exercising everyday which does not cost any thing. You can also do Yoga and pranayam which is very beneficial if done sincerely. Please note that exercise is an essential part of Diabetes management. Learn more about healthy lifestyle and management of Diabetes from the internet.

Prediabetic patients ideally should not be started on medications like metformin. Preferabally they should try and learn life style modification with proper nutritious diet and regular 30-45 mintutes exercise .In view that you are already under weight you should discontinue metformin / glycomet immediately. Even in confirmed diabetic patients who are under weight I usually avoid giving drugs like T. Glycomet.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Main reason for blood glucose remaining very high is the medications given are mostly not appropriate or inadequate. Secondly there may be an issue with dietary intake as well as physical activity. When on treatment with correct drugs and dosage FBG should be <100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg and HbA1c%<6.8. The levels mentioned are too high. These can lead to more severe problems with all other systems as uncontrolled diabetes can hasten the long term complications. Hence, it is essential to achieve strict blood glucose control. Thanks.

Hi Developing high blood pressure during the course of diabetes is expected but this has to be kept under control. Looking at her present condition, it would be best for her to start on insulin because she needs control of diabetes at the earliest without any delay as further delay will worsen her health. This sudden shoot of blood sugar and blood pressure could be because of some infection in the body. Get her admitted so that the cause of her fever can be found and treated which will help in controlling the blood sugar as well.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Blood glucose level of 280 g (fasting or PP not mentioned) is high. Signifies uncontrolled diabetes. Iin patient with diabetes, that too when it is not well controlled, there can be multiple long term complications related to almost every single vital system of the body. Hence achieving a strict glucose control with FBG < 100 mg, PP 160 to 170 mg & HbA1c% <7. Therefore, if he himself is able to manage, then it is fine. Otherwise there is a need for providing personal assistance and attention. There is also no mention about what is the present treatment that is being taken and dosage etc. So difficult to give exact opinion. Thanks.

Ayurveda For Diabetes!

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Delhi
Ayurveda For Diabetes!

When the sugar concentration in the blood increases suddenly and unreasonably, the resulting condition is known as diabetes. Sugar or glucose is generally used in order to provide much needed energy to our bodies. But when the pancreas dysfunction, it leads to a problem in the insulin production. As a result, glucose or sugar gets directly absorbed into the blood, instead of getting absorbed by insulin. And this leads to the condition of diabetes.

As an ancient science based on lifestyle related treatment methods that include herbs, massages and life changing tweaks, Ayurveda also provides various methods of managing this ailment. Here's how!

  1. Bitter Gourd: Known as an ingredient that is rich in antioxidants, this can be consumed to take care of diabetes. You will need to first remove the peel of at least four to five bitter gourds before crushing them to create a paste. This paste has to be put through a sieve so that the juice of the gourds can be extracted. You will then have to drink this juice every morning, on an empty stomach.
  2. Cinnamon: From treating coughs and colds to diabetes and other serious ailments, this is a wonder spice that can be found in most Indian kitchens. You can start by boiling a litre of water and letting it simmer on the gas for about twenty minutes. Thereafter, you can add three teaspoons of cinnamon powder to this simmering water. Strain this mixture and drink the entire batch every day to clear out the toxins.
  3. Fenugreek Seeds: For this, you will need to take about four to five tablespoons of fenugreek seeds. These will have to be soaked in a glass of water or about 250ml of water, overnight. In the morning, the softened seeds will need to be crushed before the mixture is strained. The water that escapes should be collected and ingested every day for a period of two months.
  4. Turmeric: Turmeric is a powerful and well known ingredient that is used for curing and managing many ailments. You will need to mix about half a teaspoon of turmeric powder with one teaspoon of amla powder as well as half a tablespoon of methi seeds or fenugreek seeds powder. This concoction will have to mixed in half a glass of water and taken daily on an empty stomach. This can be used by patients suffering from heart ailments as well.
  5. Diet: Cereals like ragi, corn, kulit, green millet, and barley are known to beneficial for patients suffering from diabetes. Leafy greens are also a must for such patients along with protein-rich foods like soya beans. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

Mr. Lybrate-user, a person with diabetes is not supposed to drink sugarcane juice. Because it is sucrose, which will increase blood glucose level almost immediately. So no sugar cane juice.

Hi my mom is having diabetes. She was on medicine. She was having Glynase -MF 1 and half tablet twice a day. But from last few days she is having a lot urine at night. She is having a loss of weight as well. If there is any cut or injury its taking a lot of time to recover and heal. We did the fasting and blood test. Test results:- Haemoglobin= 11.5 gms% = 78%(By Hellige Method) True Glucose (Fasting):- 260 mgm% We are not sure about the type of diabetes. She is herself a nurse. Help me with a suggestion what should we do? Should we do a C-peptide test first? Before taking any medication. Suggestions please.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Since she has been taking oral anti-diabetic drugs for controlling blood glucose, it has to T2 diabetes. In T1 only Insulin Injection has to be given. No other drug works. She now has an uncontrolled diabetes that is the reason for excess urination at night and weight loss, because more of glucose is being lost in the urine. She needs to achieve a strict blood glucose control with FBG < 100 mg, PP 170 to 180 mg & HbA1c% <7. That means there has to be a change in the current treatment. New drugs have to be added or Insulin may have to be started. There are other options also, but in this communication we are supposed to give general guidelines only. No prescriptions are allowed. If you are keen for improving her blood glucose levels and achieve better control, please come in a private conversation with following details: FBG, PP glucose levels, HbA1c%, dietary pattern extent of exercise or physical activity, lipid profile, BP readings. Based on those details I will be able to guide specifically and help improve the condition. There is no need for C- peptide testing. Thanks.

How much sugar intake is good for regular basis? How to avoid diabetes? Is sugar free is good for non diabetic person?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
How much sugar intake is good for regular basis? How to avoid diabetes? Is sugar free is good for non diabetic person?
Sugar free is not good as it has some toxic effects. Daily you can take just enough sugar to feel sweet. Avoid too mush sweet foods or snacks. By avoiding overeating, by exercise you can somewhat prevent diabetes if you are genetically not inclined for diabetes.
