For a diabetic person balanced diet has to be given, based on weight and physical activity. Since he is paralised his diet has to be restricted about 1200 to 1400 kcal/d. He should consume more green salads, fruits like papaya, apple, orange, guava, pear etc. No red meat, fish and chicken with less masala can be taken. Curds and butter milk and milk are good.

Hi, I am having diabetes. So How to reduce blood glucose level of 500 mg by natural method. please suggest me.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

Hi, I am having diabetes. So How to reduce blood glucose level of 500 mg by natural method. please suggest me.
Mr. Lybrate-user, if any one has 500 mg blood sugar, then insulin injections are a must. There is no way to reduce that kind of sugar by any other means. Severe hyperglycemia causes severe glucotoxicity and insulin producing cells of pancreas are stunned, so there activity is seriously affected. To help them regain ability to produce insulin, immediate reduction is high glucose level by using insulin injection is essential. Once levels are well controlled, then one can shift on to oral anti-diabetes drugs say in about 3 months. But without using insulin or any other drug there no way to reduce such high sugar levels. Plus such high levels also hasten long term complications of diabetes. So my suggestion is please initiate immediate treatment. Thanks for the question.

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.

If blood sugar level is high there will be more urination so her sleep is disturbed. With correct medications blood sugar can be controlled.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Insulin will work better if taken in combination with diet and exercise. Medication will depend on your blood sugar level.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if one has well controlled diabetes then fasting sugar should be closer to 100mg and pp should be 150 to 160 mg/100 ml and hba1c% <7. If you have maintained these readings consistently then diabetes is in control. With that one is able to prevent or postpone the long term complications of diabetes, which are very serious. You have not given all the details to give any suggestions. Plus there is no mention about fasting, pp sugar levels, hba1c%, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. Without these details it is difficult to give any suggestions. As regards the combination drug that you are taking, voglibose in that is supposed to be taken with the food. Glimepiride before food and metformin is ideally after food but can be taken earlier too. I prefer to give voglibose separately along with food.

It is important to continue taking tab thyronorm. Thyrowel is just a supplementary drug, has really no direct impact on tsh level or other thyroid hormone levels. If you have stopped that it does not matter at all. Thyronorm is actually the thyroid hormone which is t4, that has to be consistently taken. May I know what is your weight and are you execising regularly? because to be healthy it is essential to exercise.

My blood count of uric acid is 8.0 if it's normal. But i am facing foot pain. How to recover?
Mr. Lybrate-user, uric acid has to be <7 mg/dl to be normal. That may be the reason for pain. You may have to avoid foods containing purines or reduce high protein foods like liver and other organ meats, red meat, certain fishes, like herring, sardines, haddock, salmon, trout, mushrooms, mussels etc. Reduce sweetened aerated drinks, avoid alcohol, high fat milk products. If still uric acid remain high, then specific drug to reduce uric acid may have to be taken. Thanks.
