Diabetes Health Tip
Chinese foods are worst for diabetics:


High-calorie, high fat, high-sodium, and high-carb chinese food dishes can spike blood sugar dramatically and keep it high for a while. The biggest offenders include fried entrees such as orange chicken and sweet and sour dishes, which contain breading and are served swimming in a sugary sauce.

Have this instead: if you enjoy chinese food, prepare a modified recipe at home using steamed veggies and low-sodium, low-fat condiments and flavorings. Reducing sodium can help lower blood pressure and decrease the risk of heart attacks. Skip the white rice and noodles; have brown rice or wild rice instead.

I am 46 old Male guy working as Engineer. Recently I did blood test due to the numbness in foot bottom. With fasting my sugar was 130 and after fast break it was 180. I am a pure vegetarian, no hobbits like Cigarette, alcohol etc. Even my hereditary no body was diabetic. I know to improve my diet and lifestyle. Apart from it, I wish to know which ayurvedic (home made or readily available in market as medicine) to be used to improve my insulin and bring back my sugar level to below normal.

Mr. Lybrate-user, fasting above 126 mg is diagnostic of diabetes. Similarly after food >200 mg. Your pp level is less than 200 mg. So better get hba1c% checked, if that is above 6.5%, then diabetes confirmed. If diabetes is confirmed, then there is no other option than taking appropriate anti diabetes medicine, to control blood sugar level. Unfortunately there are no home remedies or other treatments available to treat diabetes. Lifestyle changes will also be needed. You will have to stop taking sweets, avoid deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and other bakery items like white bread, no sweetened aerated drinks, avoid fructose corn syrup containing products, highly processed food products. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits. Avoid alcohol and smoking totally. T2 diabetes does have familial spread, but can come without that too. Over weight and inactivity and junk food are main contributors. Thanks.

Dear, relax. I know it would have been shocking to have found out that you have diabetes but it will help to know that your condition is still manageable. Don't worry about insulin. At times, especially initially, insulin is given temporarily to manage the very high sugar levels. Your doctor may taper off and possibly even stop insulin if your sugar levels respond to oral antidiabetics alone. As of now, it is too early to know whether you will require insulin all your life. So relax. Find out if there was a stressful period in the last few months. As per evidence, diabetes and most other lifestyle diseases are caused due to sudden or gradual continuous tension or worry or at times a debilitating illness. You can try homeopathy which focuses on retaining and stimulating insulin secretion and thereby preventing further progression of diabetes and any onset of complications. With regular use, sugars will be controlled, allopathic medicines reduced at first then stopped. After a time, even homeopathy can be stopped. Once again, don't worry and stay positive.

How to reduce the level of thyroid I am 34 yes and suffering from hypo thyroid from last 6years and I am taking thyronorm 154 mcg.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr Surendra, You are on the right treatment, Hypothyroidism can only be controlled by thyroxine treatment. What are the latest or current TSH levels? Are your symptoms in control? If not then there may be a need to increase the dosage of thyroxine tablets. I am sure you are aware that this is a life long therapy.

Mr Vivek, Diabetes is a condition which can only be controlled effectively by appropriate treatment, diet and exercise. To have a healthy life blood sugars should be Fasting closer to 100 mg, PP between 150 to 160mg and HbA1c% <7. So she should try and maintain these levels. Diet and exercise are very important.

Keeping Diabetes a Secret

M D Internal Medicine
General Physician, Ahmedabad
Keeping Diabetes a Secret


Most people with diabetes – myself included – have things about their diabetes that they prefer to keep to themselves. But as a diabetes psychologist, one of the biggest challenges that I have in my practice is when I have a patient who prefers to keep their diabetes, and everything that it involves, a secret from people in their life. I’m not talking about details like their last A1c or what their blood sugar was the last time that they checked, but everything. When someone tells me that they prefer to hide diabetes from other people, it usually tells me that they aren’t taking care of themselves.

I don’t necessarily think that choosing to be secretive about having diabetes is necessarily a problem in and of itself. Everyone has the right to share, or not, anything about their health care, including what medical conditions they face. However I am a firm believer that behavior (which also includes the ‘act’ of not doing something) is functional. So when someone wants to be secretive about having diabetes, my question is ‘what function does this need for secrecy serve?’ Generally, it is one of 3 things:

Denial: A big reason that people with diabetes don’t tell others about their diabetes is because they are having trouble accepting that they have diabetes. By keeping it a secret, it helps them keep up the belief that there’s nothing wrong. Talking about having diabetes to others makes having diabetes seem more real. Not telling others about their diabetes lets them hold out hope that it will just go away (Spoiler alert: It won’t!)

Embarrassment: It’s really common for people to be embarrassed about having diabetes. This embarrassment usually comes from one of two places. First people may be embarrassed that they are not ‘healthy’ and feel like there is something wrong with them. Second, some people are embarrassed by the things they have to do to manage diabetes, like wear a pump, give themselves a shot, or check their blood sugar. They feel like diabetes makes them different and may have some affect on their relationships. To help them feel less embarrassed, some people keep diabetes a secret.

Burn-out: People tend to talk to their friends and family members about things they are excited about and that are important to them. If someone is keeping their diabetes a secret, it may be a sign that they are burned out and that diabetes isn’t a priority to them at that time. This is a normal feeling. What people forget sometimes is that keeping diabetes a secret from others can make it a lot harder to get support and encouragement.

While some people find that keeping diabetes a secret may work for a time, but it also usually causes other problems. First, keeping a part of you life hidden from those around you takes a lot of work and can be exhausting. Also, keeping diabetes a secret usually means people aren’t able to manage their diabetes very well, making them feel bad physically.

Before choosing to keep diabetes a secret from others remember to ask yourself what function does keeping it a secret serve. Your answer may surprise you!

Lybrate-user, diabetes melltus if confirmed, then has to be treated with appropriate drugs. The commonly seen diabetes in adults is t2, which can be well controlled by oral anti- diabetes drugs. There are a number of them. Choice of the drug depends on the severity of blood sugar level and presence of resistance to insulin. Some times oral drugs do not give adequate relief, then insulin injections are used along with oral drugs. Apart from drugs diet and exercise play e very important role. Because over weight, inactivity and junk foods are major contributors for development and increasing the severity of diabetes. Diet for each patient has to be very specifically advised. But general rule is to avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), highly processed food products and fructose corn syrup containing products. Plus alcohol and smoking should be completely avoided. Daily exercise of about 1 hour is a must. Weight should be maintained near normal. One should consume good deal of green leafy vegetables and salads. Thanks.

Lybrate-user, if fasting blood glucose is 126 mg and more, ppbs 200 mg and more and hba1c % 6.5 and more, then it is confirmed diabetes. Only in that case drug treatment is required. So get his current complete blood check up for diabetes. If above criteria are met, then treatment is needed. Otherwise diet control and regular exercise as well as weight control will help. But it appears he is over weight. His ideal body weight should be about 64 kgs. Thanks.

Patients with hypothyroidism suffered from hypovitaminosis d with hypocalcaemia. Moreover, the positive significant correlation between each of serum vit d and calcium with thyroid hormones and that negative significant correlation with tsh levels, suggested that deficiency of serum vit d and calcium levels were significantly associated with degree and severity of the hypothyroidism which encourage the advisability of vit d supplementation. Screening for vitamin d deficiency and serum calcium levels recommended for all hypothyroid patients.

You don't have high blood pressure at the moment, but it is slightly above optimal. Single readings are not diagnostic. Optimal BP is <120/80. It would be wise to adopt a healthy lifestyle, such as eating healthily, reduce salt in your diet, exercise, lose weight if overweight, limit alcohol consumption and stop smoking if you smoke. The good thing about exercise is that it reduces the strain on the heart and also raises your HDL (good cholesterol) as well as improving circulation. Now with regards to exercise, the best type of exercise for the heart is aerobic activity which ensures the large groups of muscles in the body get a good work out. Swimming is good, as is brisk walking, dancing and cycling, etc. With regards to diet, as I mentioned before, limit salt consumption and the amount of saturated fats you eat. Also limit the amount of complex carbs you eat. Try and eat 5 portions of fruit and vegetables per day * and also try and eat 3 portions of oily fish per week. Try and avoid frying your food, grill it instead. Switch to olive oil. The key is moderation, you can eat anything you like providing you don't go OTT. * A recent study showed that eating your "5 a day" fruit and vegetables may not cut the cancer risk. Many people have interpreted this study into meaning that eating your "5 a day" fruit and vegetables isn't beneficial at all and that what Doctors and Nurses have been advising patients is incorrect. This isn't accurate. The study just looked at the diet-cancer link (which we already knew wasn't very strong anyway), it didn't look at the other health benefits that eating fruit and vegetables has. But that study has certainly given the alties and their "special cancer curing diet" food for thought! There are various causes of high blood pressure, but proper diet and regular exercise are definitely the biggest part of the equation. “ Actually there are two types, essential and secondary, the latter accounts for about 5% of cases and can be caused by kidney and/or hormone issues. Most people have “essential” hypertension where the cause is less than clear. We know that a poor diet, obesity, excess alcohol, smoking and lack of exercise are major risk factors. Diet and lifestyle changes often helps and is sometimes enough to keep patients off anti-hypertensive medication.
