Diabetes & Fat Intake - How The Two Are Related?

Diabetes & Fat Intake - How The Two Are Related?

Diabetes is a condition that affects the pancreas to the extent that they do not release the required quantity of insulin which can lead to a high blood sugar level as the body starts to absorb excess glucose from the food that it ingests. This can be of various types and have different implications for different patients. While many experts insist that keeping a low cholesterol level and low weight is a primary requirement for treatment of diabetes patients, there are a number of myths in this regard. Not eating fat is one such myth that we are out to prove wrong today.

So read on to find out why diabetic people need to eat fat.

  1. Saturated Fats and Trans Fats: There are studies that demonstrate how saturated fats can actually prove to be beneficial for diabetes patients. These can be found in various sources like fish and nuts. This releases heptadecanoic acids which can normalise the blood sugar levels as well as the insulin and triglyceride levels in the body.
  2. Dairy Fat: The use of milk and yogurt as well as butter can actually be help in bringing the blood sugar levels down. It also shows up favourably on the lipoprotein markers. Butter, in particular is known to have clarifying properties that can bring down the risk of diabetes as well. One must take care to use dairy products that are fat free. 
  3. Animal Fat: Having meat which releases fat and having dairy products like cheese and milk which releases healthy saturated fats are two different things. One can replace carbs and meat with these kinds of products so that there is better absorption and creation of quality animal fats which can actually help the insulin levels.
  4. Mono saturated and Poly saturated Fats: Food items like fish and nuts that carry high levels of Omega-3 fatty acids as well as mono saturated and poly saturated fats can help patients suffering from diabetes by clearing the bloodstream of cholesterol and high lipid levels. This also prevents the risk of heart disease and arterial blockages. These kinds of fats are also found in flax seeds, soya products and walnuts. 

Going low on carbohydrates and avoiding sugar is usually recommended for patients suffering from diabetes. Yet, it is important to have your fill of essential fats as mentioned above with the help of dairy products, clarified better, omega three fatty acids, dry fruits, soya products and some amount of vegetable oils, as these actually have a number of benefits for these patients. These kinds of fats are not known to cause heart disease or high cholesterol. 

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

Mr Gopinathan, HbA1c% of 6.1 is a prediabetic condition. You need to be careful. To prevent diabetes exercise regularly, avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Avoid smoking and alcohol. Take a restricted diet giving calories based on ideal body weight and level of exercise. This should help.

Nw as your daaughter as already taking thyroid tab (dose please) since long,she have to take this medicine maybe life longand with time dose of these medicines is going to increase along with opther comp[lications.

Now choice is yrs whether to take only just a single tablet of thyroid empty stomach life long or get her treated of this problem to get rid of this tablet.

The idea here is to ascertain whether your wife has benefitted by the 75 mcg dose or not. This can only be established by testing atleast at 6weeks interval initially to know whether thyroid is under control or not. Tsh test is recommended before further advise.
