What you refer acne is basically boil which is common in diabetic First is take good control of sugar level by regular blood check and adjust medicine dose under guidance of your physician if still happening then take antibiotic course as Augmentin 625 mg twice daily for 5 days Also T bact cream to apply over those boils and even use it at finger tips, nostrils, ears margin, and anus rim At these 4 locations apply T bact cream regularly for 1 month that will reduce the recurrence of boils Still I recommend to send pics if boils to get better idea of the condition.

What about your father about diabetes. Diabetes one way has a tendency of running in families among many other causes. We as indians probably by genes have the tendency - the remedy is not in our hands. But most commonly the common form of diabetes ie. Type 2 occurs more commonly due to what is known as insulin resistance this is based on sedentery life style, lack of exercise, junk food, over eating of sweets, obesity and stress. Hence you must know what is healthy life style and adopt it on daily basis. - about diet, exercise, rest relaxation etc. You must check your blood fasting and 1 and 1/2 hours after meals once in 6 months or an year. By any chance your blood sugar level in morning after 8 hours of fasting previous night is between 100 - 125 mg% you may be in impaired fasting glucose. Pp sugar ie. 2 hours after 75 grams of glucose after 8 hours of overnight fasting is 140 mg% to 199mg%, you are in impaired glucose tolerance. Both are prediabetic states. When you have a chance to prevent diabetes or atleast postpone it. For which you have to have ideal body weight, at least 30 minutes of exercise and proper diet control ie no uncontrolled free sugars, junk food, heavy intake oils etc. More of leafy vegetables regular annual check up of hba1c should remain at 6.5. Any parameter going up heralds actual diabetes.

You can control diabetes by following a proper balanced diet chart. You need to have more of whole grain fibrous food rather than refined food product. Eat at regular time interval. Do exercise regularly. Avoid taking sweet products. Eat fruits, vegetables in liberal amount.

I am a borderline diabetic at 116/156. I am told banana is to be avoided. Want to know if all bananas are to be avoided or one can choose from Nendiran, Poovan, Chhevall, Matti (hill banana - very short just 2" long, Rasthali or any other. Can I take Banana Chips instead to get daily potassium?

Banana is a rich source of pottasium. It can increase the sugars too. That's why they would have told you to avoid it. But you can have it sometimes. I do not know if there is any significant difference between all the varieties.

Lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. First and foremost thing required is to achieve a quick and reasonable control of his blood glucose. The levels mentioned are too high. So please initiate appropriate treatment first and bring the glucose under control. Then one can look at the diet. To suggest specific diet I need all the details like present diet, extent of physical activity, glucose levels, HbA1c%, weight and height. Thanks.
