since you have t1 diabetes, by now you must be aware that only insulin injections is the treatment for this condition. Eating sweets will increase blood sugar very rapidly so a person with diabetes is not supposed to eat them. What can be done occsionally sweets can be made at home using sugar substitute sucralose, which does not increase blood sugar. So you may look at that option. But it is better to avoid sweets altogether.

I am 29 years old. Today morning I checked my sugar just after waking up and my blood sugar showed 375! I am shocked. I am little over weight and currently from the past few months I am going through office tensions and work. I do not have the urination problem but I am getting irritated in a short while. I am also getting a slight pain near to my liver. The last time I checked was 2 months ago and it was 140. Yesterday I had an unusual diet for dinner at a party which included white rice and other junk food. Please advice. I am not find of sweets and avoid all sorts of chocolates and sugar. The only source of sugar is tea which I consume twice a day. My diet basically includes margarine and white bread for breakfast, 4 chapatis for lunch and generally 3 chapatis for dinner or sometimes white rice. In the evening I tend to have 4 slices of bread with amul lite. Please help. Is it because of the stress and the bad dinner last night or is my sugar gone for a toss. Or, should I test again in a couple of days?

Hello, It is essential for you to start antidiabetes treatment with appropriate drugs rightaway. Otherwise the condition can become worse and may lead to some of the long term complications of diabetes. Hence, please initiate immediate treatment. Plus follow a healthy diet and regular exercise schedule. Ideal body weight should be (height in Cms - 100 + IBW). All your intake should be based on IBW and extent of daily physical activity. All the best.

Hello Mr. Lybrate-user, first of all I would like to tell you that don't be disappointed, there are so many people who are living with diabetes life long but it is under controlled with the help of medicine & diet planning. Your hba1c should be in the range of 6-6.5% for good control of diabetes. There are some dietary changes that will help you. Take small & frequent meal. Take more & more green leafy vegetables & salad in your daily meal. Avoid simple sugar & simple carbs in your diet. Avoid oily/ fried / outside food. Take whole wheat products or fiber rich diet like daliya/ oats/ multi grain flour etc. Take 1 cup of green tea in a day. Do regular walk/ exercise/ swimming/ jogging whatever you like atleast for 30 minutes.

Looking at your age you must be having t1 dm, which needs insulin injections to control blood sugar. I am sure you have already started the necessary treatment. Apart from that you need to monitor blood sugar almost daily so that dose of insulin is adjusted as well as blood sugar is also brought under control. So you will have to be under a constant care of a good local phsician or a diabetologist. Plus you have to avoid sweets, deep fried foods, sweetened aerated drinks, junk foods and pastries. Also exercise regularly to keep sugar levels in control.
