Pumpkin Extract Beneficial for Diabetic Patients

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Pumpkin extract has insulin–like effects. It can help people with diabetes keep their blood sugar under control.

Quoting Chinese researchers that animals with drug–induced diabetes treated with pumpkin extract had lower blood glucose levels, greater insulin secretion, and more insulin–producing beta cells than diabetic rats that weren’t given the extract. This action may be due to the presence of both antioxidants and D–chiro–inositol, a molecule that mediates insulin activity.

Pumpkin extract is potentially a very good product for pre–diabetic persons, as well as those who have already developed diabetes.

Pumpkin is frequently used to treat diabetes and high blood glucose in Asia.

She is diabetic patient using tablets sugar undercontrol but oftentimes loosemoition any solution for stopping.
Mr. Lybrate-user, in diabetes some times gastrointestinal symptoms keep occurring. Patient may get frequent or loose motions or constipation on and often. This can not easily prevented. But proper diet, regular bowel habits and regular exercise can help. Sometimes uncontrolled hyperglycemia also affects gastrointestinal function and normal peristalsis. When blood glucose is in control fbs should be closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg & hba1c% <6.8. Occasionally drugs may be useful like loparamide to stop loose motions. Thanks.

Hello best is to change over to long acting analogue insulin like backlog (glaring) this along with tablets will give very good control. Start with 6 units before break fast monitor sugar levels daily and increase insulin by 2 units every alternate day. The company reps will guide you (biocon)

For High BP and diabetic people which form of exercise is more appropriate Yoga or gym.

For High BP and diabetic people which form of exercise is more appropriate Yoga or gym.
Yoga is what I recommend to my patients. Basically, when you exercise regularly, it is all good, but once the gym membership is over, all exercises cease. This has a bad affect on health and diabetes. Yoga is something which doesn't need sophisticated equipments and can be easily done as per the patients convenience. Amongst exercises, swimming is the best.

My TSH Comes7. 20 while the normal range is 5.50 .I have hypo thyroidism or hyper thyroid please help.
Your Tsh is elevated but you may not require any treatment. It would be worthwhile to repeat the test again after a few months. Only if you have symptoms of hypothyroidism, your doctor may consider treatment.
