Suffering From Diabetes - 7 Foods That Are A Big 'NO'!

Dip.Diab, Fellowship Diabetology (Gold Medallist), MBBS
Diabetologist, Thane

Diabetic patients should have a meticulous focus on the kind of food they consume. While too much food can shoot up the blood sugar level, too less food can bring down the blood sugar level. It is necessary to maintain a fine balance. It is also very critical to refrain from certain food items which can give a blow back to diabetes.

Here is a list of 8 such food items to stay away from:

  1. Candy: Candies contain a high amount of sugar and largely contribute to weight gain and increase in blood sugar. Instead of consuming candies, it makes sense to satisfy the sweet tooth with food items such as berries, fruit salad etc.
  2. Pastries and cakes: Pastries and cakes are loaded with white flour, sugar, and sodium. They not, only interfere with the proper functioning of insulin in the body but can shoot up blood sugar level in a very short span of time.
  3. White bread: White bread acts just like sugar. Once the body digests it, the refined starch in the white bread interferes with insulin and disturbs diabetes control. A better option to white bread is a whole bread English muffin.
  4. French fries: A favorite to many, this can wreak havoc to the blood sugar level of a person suffering from diabetes. It contains tons of oil, carb, and starch. It raises the cholesterol level and invites other diseases as well.
  5. Syrup and pancakes: It is one of the worst choices in a breakfast. It has loads of white flour and carbs. The butter inside the pancakes makes it worse. Not only does it interfere with the insulin in the body, it majorly disturbs the diabetes control regime.
  6. Raisins: While raisins may not be as harmful as other food items, it still has a detrimental effect on the body. Owing to its concentrated sugar content, it can raise the blood sugar level.
  7. Fruit juice: Strange as it may sound, fruit juice, even if they are hundred percent pure is as good as a sugar syrup. It can sharply increase the blood sugar level and be a major roadblock to diabetes control.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

If she is asymptomatic then you can wait. But sometimes in near future she can have pain and she might need surgery for that. Keep sugars in control.

My urine sugar is 2 and ketone is nil What it mean I am taking insulin 3 times a day.

MBBS, MD
Endocrinologist, Delhi
My urine sugar is 2 and ketone is nil
What it mean
I am taking insulin 3 times a day.
It means sugar is passing in urine. Normally it should not. Your body is utilizing sugar to produce energy. Ketones are produced when body is not able utilize glucose because of deficiency of insulin, and energy is produced by metabolism of fats. You need to increase the dose of insulin.

Quest" What is the initial symptoms of diabetes? How can be people be alerted from such type of diseases.
Mr Sonu, Diabetes mellitus usually does not produce any symptoms, that is the reason many people do not come to know that they have diabetes. When fully developed it can cause excess urination, excess hunger, excess thirst, unexplained weight loss and tiredness. Only way detect diabetes is to do a blood sugar level check.

You have to wait for some more days and continue the treament along with the daily routine. A healthy lifestyle and proper medications can bring the blood sugar levels down and can be well controlled in the long term. Let him learn Yoga which is safe and effective to bring balance in the whole body and it's mechanism. Please follow up with the doctor on a regular basis.
