Mr. Lybrate-user, fasting blood glucose of 185 mg is fairly high level. It means uncontrolled diabetes. This can lead to multiple problems because of long term complications occurring due to hyperglycemia. It is absolutely essential to achieve very strict control of glucose levels with fasting closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg/100 ml & hba1c%<6.8. As regards giving a diet chart for you, it is necessary to have all the above information, plus present dietary pattern and extent of exercise being done daily, based on that information I will be able to prepare a diet plan. However, following is the list of foods that need to be avoided. Sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks, products containing fructose corn syrup, highly processed food products and all items made out of maida. Avoid fruits like mango, banana, grapes and chikkoo. Thanks.

What are your fasting, pp sugar levels and hba1c%? if diabetes is in check then such problems normally do not develop. Plus you are obese with a bmi of 35.92kg/m2 (normal <23kg/m2). Unless you work on weight reduction it is difficult to control sugar and consequent problems. On the penis the marks are due to (possibly) fungal infection, take tab gocan 150 once a week for 8 weeks and also apply candid b cream locally twice a day. One way to take care of your excess weight is to consider bariatric surgery. Which will also control diabetes too.

There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed to protect against future flares or prevent gout or uric acid problems from occurring in the first instance: maintain a high fluid intake (2-4 liters a day) avoid alcohol maintain a healthy body weight eat a balanced diet limit fish, meat and poultry intake. If attempting to lose weight, avoid low-carbohydrate diets. If carbohydrate intake is insufficient, the body is unable to burn its own fat properly, releasing substances called ketones into the bloodstream. This results in a condition called ketosis that can increase the level of uric acid in the blood. It is most important to avoid foods that are high in purines, to ensure that the levels of uric acid in the blood do not get too high. Here is a list of high-purine foods to be wary of: beef kidneys brains dried beans and peas liver mackerel mushrooms lose some weight by walking or other exercise, avoid meats and get always be on a prescribed diet as prescribed by a registered dietitian. I am a registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator and a doctor, consult privately for detailed treatment plans using diet and medications.

Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. However, the patient does not need to take medicine unless his/her post. Prandial blood sugar level reaches 200. If post. Prandial blood sugar level reaches 200 then patient can take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnema sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Along with intake of medicines the patient need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. In order to decrease the intake of carbohydrate in diet the patient should avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

Hi lybrate-user eat fresh vegetables daily. Avoid having sugar completely. Eat whole wheat bread instead of white bread; avoid everything made from white flour and make whole wheat bread, chapattis and brown rice a way of life. Do not skip a meal and eat three meals a day. Drink plenty of water to eliminate the toxins from the system. Limit your fat intake to 2-3 teaspoons a day. Increase the fiber intake as it provides a sense of fullness and also prevents hunger pangs. Take antioxidants for protecting the body against the toxins released during weight loss. Exercise catalyzes your efforts to lose weight and even regular walking for thirty minutes can give you the benefits of an aerobics exercise. To improve the metabolism, try increasing the duration, frequency, intensity of your daily workout. Remember that maintaining the ideal weight is a lifetime commitment and not a short-term affair. Firmly believe that the pleasure of being trim and healthy is far better than the pleasure of eating unwisely.

Whether Diabetic patients can drink honey, lemon, with water in the morning.
Dear lybrate user, lemon & water has nothing to do with the blood sugar level. But in case of honey you need take it in limited amount. First of all you need to be clear that the honey which you are using is free from added sugar or saccharine. To check this just keep the honey in the deep fridger of your refrigerator for 24 hours. If you notice that the honey has solidified after 24 hours of cooling then immediately discard it. Real honey which does not contain added sugar or saccharine won't get solidified even after cooling for 24 hours. Do not take such honey which contains added sugar or saccharine now from your stated information I can conclude that you are going to take honey & lemon juice mixed water in the morning to get rid of excess fat. Kindly remember that honey will help to get you more fat more fat if you take it with cold water if you are willing to lose weight then I would advise you to squeeze a lemon and mix it juice in a cup of lukewarm water & add one teaspoon of honey in that water & drink it early morning in empty stomach.

Diabetics are more prone to gum diseases if oral hygiene is not properly taken care of. The swelling you are talking about is the manifestation of the gum disease. So its better that you visit a dentist for cleaning of your teeth & then the dentist can assess the exact condition of your teeth & can provide the appropriate treatment. But make it a point to brush your teeth & use a mouthwash twice daily & get your teeth cleaned once in 6 months.

Hello lybrate-user, there is no magic that can help to reduce the belly fat. Eating right and exercise is the only thing that helps. Being a diabetic, its necessary to manage your sugars & body weight as a priority. Increase your protein and calcium intake by including nuts, pulses, dals, dairy products, lean meats - fish and chicken, eggs (if non-vegeterian). These will help you in managing the sugars as well as solve the deficiencies.
