My father is suffered by diabetes
He wants to know the fruits to eat and the fruits to avoid.
Most fruits have a low glycemic index (gi) because of their fructose and fiber content. Melons and pineapple have medium gi values as do some dried fruits such as dates, raisins, and sweetened cranberries. So avoid all these and eat all other fruits.

Mr. lybrate-user, If she has diabetes (Type 2), she has to be appropriately treated with specific medications. To advise medications I need to know fasting, PP glucose levels, HbA1c%, weight, height, extent of daily exercise being done and dietary pattern. Plus if she is on treatment, then drugs and dosage of the same. It will be better if you come in a private conversation with all these details, then I can give specific prescriptions and necessary advise. If diabetes is not well controlled, then it can cause a number of complications related eyes, blood vessels, nerves, lower limbs and heart. SO good control is is a necessity. Thanks.

Dear lybrate-user! We do not get people come to our home to dress us, brush our teeth and for other day to day activities. Hence insulin injection should always be self administered or at most by a family member. An outside person will never do it with heart, plus one will then totally become dependent on an external person, lose all freedom. Trust me it is not a pleasant experience. Your painful experience with injection suggests you have not been trained properly to inject insulin. Please meet an endocrinologist. He/She will be happy to teach you and your mom the correct insulin injection technique. Proper injection is always painless. Apologies for this strong worded response but that is the reality. If you were in Delhi, I would have been more than happy to help.

Hello sir. This mistake is done by all diabetic patients. Taking sweets without no control. Ok.just leave that n better do not repeat this. To tackle this. Be on a strict diet cut down all carbs, sweets, sugars in your meal pattern. Go for a regular walking for about 45 mins daily without any compromise. Take more veg salads. This should be continued for 3 months no excuses in the following. Then go for a blood test mainly fasting, pp, and HBA1C. If then also it still the high v can think of changing the dosage of tablet but till tat follow a strict diet. It vl take tym to reach the lower levrl tat you had before. Do not lose hope. Follow a strict diet. If you want a personalised diet plan based on your likes n dislikes in food kindly book an appointment woth me. Thank you.

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science

For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for more than 2-3 hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Fruits should be had as a mid meal. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Agar confirmed diabetes hai, to jo dava jaruri hai wo leni padati hai. Bina modern medicine (oral or insulin injection) diabetes control may nahi ayega. Usake saath regular exercise aur restricted diet lena bhi jaruri hai.

5 tips to prevent diabetes

BHMS
Homeopath, Hyderabad
5 tips to prevent diabetes
Regular exercise
Regular physical activity can help you prevent or manage a wide range of health problems and concerns, including stroke, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, being active boosts high-density lipoprotein (hdl), or" good" cholesterol and decreases unhealthy triglycerides. This keeps your blood flowing smoothly, which also decreases your risk of cardiovascular diseases

Avoid unhealthy food like fat food and junk food
Junk food is the type of food which has no nutritional value and is high in calories and also poses health hazards. The good taste of junk food comes from hydrogenated fats. These fats lead to obesity, atherosclerosis, hypertension, diabetes and heart diseases. Consumption of junk food increases the risk of diabetes to a great extent and should be avoided to the maximum.

Annual blood sugar estimation after age of 35
This would help an individual keep a check on the blood sugar count thus making him/her aware of how much to cut on food and exercise on a regular basis. This would make a person conscious of his eating habits and exercise regime by taking adequate steps to control high blood sugar levels.

Management of stress/change in lifestyle
Stress management has become extremely relevant in today's times as it the catalyst for many diseases specially diabetes. Managing stress levels among adults is extremely important and regular exercise and yoga can be the best way to do it. Life style changes such as continuous travel and irregular work hours can affect the normal functioning of the body leading to lifestyle diseases, diabetes being one of them. If diagnosed with diabetes, inspect your feet daily and seek early care if you get a foot injury. Modern wound dressings with antimicrobial properties like aquacel ag, which is made up of patented hydrofiber technology with ionic silver, have played a pivotal role in treatment of chronic foot ulcers.

Maintain weight as per your height (height in cms- 100 + your weight in kgms.)
If all the aforementioned steps are taken care of maintain correct weight should not be a problem. Obesity and diabetes go hand in hand hence maintain weight is a key part of preventing the onset of diabetes. Weight can be checked by eating right and exercising every day and also by limiting the amount of food intake. One should strictly avoid over eating as it causes problems like weight gain and obesity.

Im high blood pressure and diabetes patient how I decrease both this by food and exercise?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

Im high blood pressure and diabetes patient how I decrease both this by food and exercise?
Mr Debu, For treating both hypertension and diabetes taking prescribed drugs is essential. If you are already on drug treatment, then only the diet control and exercise will provide additional benefit. If you are looking for only diet and exercise without any drug treatment, then i am not sure whether there is any benefit. For hypertension your diet should contain less of salt (not more than 2.3 g a day). Our average diet gives almost 8 to 10 g of salt. (Sodium chloride). This means all food preparations made at home should contain minimal salt, no salt on table, no salt to be added to salads or fruits. No processed foods as all those contain very high quantity of salt. No pickles and papads, no salty substances fried shave or chivada etc. For diabetes your diet should give exact calories based on your Ideal Body Weight, blood sugar levels and extent of daily physical activity.You should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Refrain from alcohol and smoking, red meat and egg yolk. Plus at lest 1 hour of exercise on all days of the week or at least on 5 days.

Vitiligo is a genetic disorder trigger by indigestion and stressful conditions. There was always confusion in patients mind regarding choosing right treatment approach for vitiligo.

E old patches shows some recovery but new white patches continue to come even when we are using homeopathy. If one think about using ayurveda there is no good vaidya who is expertise in vitiligo. At our clinic we have integrated external allopathic applications with internal ayurvedic medication to give fast and long lasting results. Ayurvedic herbal medicines are used to purify blood and stop the spread of disease and external application are capable of quickly start regimentation. With a expertise in treating thousands of patients in past years. Kayakalp global is leading skin clinic in india to treat vitiligo. For detail replies regarding 1. Causes of vitiligo 2. Is it genetic or can it spread to next generation 3. Causes of spread of disease after it remains stable for some years 4. Should we use homeopathy, allopathy or ayurveda.
