Mr. Lybrate-user, pp ka matalab hai post prandial (after food). Usually break fast ya lunch lene ke 2 ghante baad blood sugar ko dekha jata hai. Fasting ka matalab hai kareeb 8 se 10 ghante ka samay beetana chahiye khane ke baad. Random blood sugar ka matalb din me kabhibh chek karana. Fasting agar >126 mg /100, ya pp >200 mg /ml ya rbs >140 mg ka matalab - us aadami ko diabetes hai.

Hi drink some bitter gourd juice on an empty stomach each morning. First remove the seeds of two to three bitter gourds and use a juicer to extract the juice. Add some water and then drink it. Follow this treatment daily in the morning for at least two months. Take pranacharya diabeto and shilajeet capsule twice a day with water. Take vasant kusumakar ras twice a day. Avoid sweets. Take small meals in less time interval. Do pranayama early morning. Avoid alcohol consumption.

Weight loss in diabetes usually signifies uncontrolled diabetes. He probably needs to change/or adjust his anti diabetic medicine dosages he may improve faster with short course of insulin therapy (if he is not taking). Some times associated illness like hyperthyroidism, tuberculosis, hiv, cancer could also be responsible for weight loss. He may need investigation for same if no improvement in weight after diabetes control. He may improve faster if changes his diet to high protein, nutritionally rich diet if his all other reports are normal and he can improve to normal weight suitable for his height.

My blood sugar levels after food started climbing up recently during the past two months 140, 158, 170. Suggest me a diet to reduce this ? I am from Kerala south India and the traditional meal is rice. Is it time to see a physician ?

MBBS
General Physician, Indore
Your post prandial sugar raised to a high level, you should check HbA1c levels and can start with Tab. METFORMIN 500MG once a day in between breakfast. For diet you take rice in less amount and substitue with Roti and other vegitables also. Check the difference in 2 weeks by doing Fasting and PPBS and consult again.

My mother is a diabetic patient. How can she recover their self from major effect of diabetes?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

My mother is a diabetic patient. How can she recover their self from major effect of diabetes?
If she has t2 dm then she must start appropriate treatment with anti diabetic drugs oral or insulin injection. If she has already started the treatment then it is good. Please understand diabetes occurs due to either deficiency of insulin secreted by islets of langerhans beta cells. So it can only be controlled by drugs, diet snd exercise. There is no cure. She also is overweight with a bmi of 27.72 kg/m2 ideal weight for her is 37 kgs. To achieve good control you have to aim at fasting closer to 100mg and pp should be 150 to 160 mg. And hba1c% <7. Drugs, diet and exercise are important aspect of treatment.

If her total count is high then probably she has bad infection in her interstitial lung disease (ild. She may need suitable antibiotics and good sugar control. As she is 87 I think better to consult in person with her all reports for better results.

With such high sugar level it's clear he is diabetic it is important to get him clinically checked from an endocrinologist and then take treatment in the meantime let him not have any direct sugar products and cut down on carbohydrate consumption he should exercise regularly for 45mnts to 1hr in any form like brisk walk etc.

My mom is severally effected from uric acid. What precautions should be taken to lesseR this acid? What should she avoid to eat?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
The first thing you should do is to eat foods that are high in fiber, this is because fiber rich foods absorb uric acid from the blood. Your kidneys then'throw' out the excess uric acid. Try to eat oatmeal, spinach, cauliflowers and isabgol in milk if possible. Please use olive oil to cook your food. Kindly avoid vegetable oils because they become unhealthy when heated twice. This leads to rancid fat in the body. These destroy vitamin e, that in turn controls uric acid levels. Olive oil also curbs uric acid by itself. Vitamin c chewable tablets taken 500mg daily lower uric acid levels within 4 to 8 weeks. Try to stop intake of sweets, cakes and pastries. Saturated fats are bad for you. Many fruits have got potent anti-oxidant properties, like celery seeds, grapes and tomatoes, and these prevent harmful toxins from attacking your organs - releasing uric acid.

Sugar getting down and when use stairs getting swelling in legs.

Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
Sugar getting down and when use stairs getting swelling in legs.
Walking and exercise cause blood sugar to go into muscles and fat. If you are a long standing diabetic on insulin or sulfonylurea medication you need to adjust dose accordingly. Avoid exercise just after diabetic tablet or insulin or have some carbs food before exercise. Swelling in legs may be due to neuropathy or vascular atheroscerosis. Need more details about it like bp, time span of dm, medication etc consult diabetologist.

Hi There are some factors which can cause diabetes in a person. Some are modifiable like obesity, smoking, alcohol, sedentary lifestyle. Some factors cannot be modified like your age, sex and genetics (which is your family history of diabetes). So work at preventing obesity, avoid alcohol and smoking, eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly. Apart from walking do AB exercises like push ups to lose your tummy fat. Diet would basically be high protein, low fat and low carbohydrate diet. Eat lots of salads. Check your HbA1C test once in a year to Screen for diabetes so that it can be treated at an early stage.
