Jowar is good and high fibre food for diabetes. Along with diet restriction exercise is also must for weight reduction. Keep your blood sugar and thyroid hormone controlled.

Ayurvedic Remedies to help you Combat Diabetes

Diabetes is a condition wherein, the level of sugar in your blood increases significantly. This happens when the sugar you consume from foods is not efficiently processed by the body thus, a rise in the level of your blood sugar. An excess concentration of sugar in the blood can make you prone to various health complications.

Symptoms

The symptoms of diabetes include frequent urge to urinate, increased thirst, increased hunger and rapid weight loss, combined with fatigue and irritability. Diabetes can also cause problems in the eyes, such as blurred vision as well as make you prone to cataracts and even glaucoma (in very rare cases). With diabetes, any injury or body sore tends to take a lot of time to heal.

Causes     

Diabetes is a disorder that occurs due to impaired insulin functioning. Insulin is a hormone that is produced by pancreas, which is located right below the stomach. Diabetes, when occurs as a result of insufficient production of insulin by the pancreas, is known as Type 1 Diabetes. In this type, the immune cells in the body attack the cells in the pancreas, which produce insulin thus, discouraging insulin secretion.

Another kind is the Type 2 diabetes, which occurs when the cells in the body become insulin resistant. Most cases of diabetes are of this particular type, as one of the major reasons behind this is following an erratic lifestyle devoid of healthy habits.  

Gestational diabetes is the third type, although it isn’t very common. During pregnancy, the various hormones that are secreted in the body can play spoilsport with the functioning of the pancreas, thus the production of insulin. This leads to a drastic rise in blood sugar levels.

How to treat it with Ayurvedic remedies

  1. Eat healthy: Eating healthy assumes the maximum importance; you need to eat healthy in order to control diabetes effectively. Include plenty of fruits and vegetables in the diet, but make sure to pick foods that contain little sugar. Fruits such as bananas and grapes are not the best options for a diabetic. Rather, one should consider cucumber and bitter gourd in such circumstances.

  2. Exercise regularly: Regular exercise can keep your body weight at optimal level, which goes a long way in preventing and controlling symptoms of diabetes. Besides being good for your heart, cardiovascular exercises such as running bring down the excess glucose levels in the blood.

  3. Limit stress: Stress is very harmful for the body as it reduces your immunity against diseases and infections. Leading a stressful life can make you prone to a variety of disorders, diabetes being one of them. Relaxation techniques such as meditation and yoga can help one deal with stress effectively. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Hi, Both my parents have diabetes. Mom takes Gluconorm G2 (Metformin+ Glimepiride) Dad takes Volibo M0. 2 (Metformin+ Voglibose) Both have a 500 mg+0.2 mg combination. What's the difference between them? Are they interchangeable?

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for your query. The drugs mentioned Glimepiride and Voglibose are different in their action. Metformin is supposed to reduce or delay glucose absorption and hence slows down blood glucose rise after taking food. Plus it also reduces insulin resistance hence helps blood glucose control. There are other beneficial effects like helps slight weight reduction. Glimepiride is a sulphonylurea compound, it stimulates insulin secretion by the beta cells of pancreas, thus increases insulin availability and controls blood glucose level. Its action is very powerful. At times it can cause low blood glucose level also. Voglibose is called a alpha glucosidase inhibitor, reducing conversion of disaccharrides (sucrose) to glucose. It is a milder drug. Therefore, these are interchangeable drugs. However, what is most important is that blood glucose should be well controlled with fasting glucose closer to 100 mg, PP 160 to 170 mg & HbA1c%<7. Then only all the long term complications of diabetes can be either delayed or prevented. Thanks,

What is the causes of diabetes please tell me and how many types of diabetes and which is dangerous.
Hello,There are two types of Diabetes Type 1 and type 2.causes including the followiing:- Type 1 diabetes is caused by the immune system destroying the cells in the pancreas that make insulin. This is called an autoimmune reaction, or autoimmune cause, because the body is attacking itself. There is no specific diabetes causes, but the following triggers may be involved: Viral or bacterial infection Chemical toxins within food Unidentified component causing autoimmune reaction Underlying genetic disposition may also be a type 1 diabetes cause. **Type 2 diabetes causes are usually multifactorial - more than one diabetes cause is involved. Often, the most overwhelming factor is a family history of type 2 diabetes. This is the most likely type 2 diabetes cause. There are a variety of risk factors for type 2 diabetes, any or all of which increase the chances of developing the condition. These include: Obesity Living a sedentary lifestyle Increasing age Bad diet Type 2 Diabetes is more harmful than type 1 Diabetes.

My mom has thyroid from last 20 years now she is taking 100 mg thyroxine , what to do.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, she has to continue taking thyroxine for life time. Dosage may change depending upon tsh levels. Usually on treatment to achieve good control of hypothyroidism, tsh should be between 3 to 4 milli units/l. If level goes up, then dose may have to be increased. Plus she should exercise regularly so as to avoid weight increase. Also follow all instructions regarding avoiding certain foods. Thanks.

It depends on the cause of his sugar rise. If your doctor feels that it is a temporary issue, then he may stop it after a few days. Eg. In case of infections, or if he has been irregular with medicines or diet, or its very high just at the time of diagnosis. However, sometimes in spite of taking all medicines regularly and following all precautions, the sugar level rises gradually when the duration of diabetes has been long. In such cases, insulin needs to be started and is permanent, although with dosage adjustments.

Your reports are normal & within the range. Sometimes slight variations do occur between fasting/ post prandial readings dur to technical reasons or blood taken a bit later than 2 hours. Good to know that you have brought levels of choleasterol to normal but this is not be all. Do get total lipid profile & take less sugar and sweets as sugar in fruits give us enough to sustain.

Lybrate-userji, tsh level is lower than normal, but does she have any symptoms showing there is excess of thyroxine activity? if so then thyroxine dose can be reduced by about 12.5 mcg, to 87.5 mcg per day and then check tsh level after 4 to 6 weeks. If levels have come up continue the same dose.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Diabetes mellitus does lead to erectile dysfunction, even when blood glucose control is good. If the control is bad then the affection is much earlier. Hence primary need is to have a strict blood glucose control. First and foremost id to control your blood glucose levels, fasting should be closer to 100 mg, PP :150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. Then you may consider using PDE-V inhibitor jsut before the expected sexual contact. Thanks.
