My mother has diabetes. Is this genetic disease?

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
Diabetes does spread in families. If both parents are diabetic 75 per cent offsprings are likely to get it. If one parent is affected then 50 per cent of children may get it. So you have to be careful meaning maintain normal weight, exercise daily avoid over eating and deep fried foods. Check your sugar levels at least once a year.

Mr. Lybrate-user, healthy lifestyle means: 1) regular exercise for about an hour, initially brisk walking will be fine. But if you can do jogging for half to 1 hour, then that is excellent. Running and/or jogging is excellent exercise, burns a lot of calories, keeps you fit. 2) sweets have to be totally avoided. The reason is sucrose in sweets is converted to glucose and blood sugar level goes up almost instantly. 3) deep fried foods contain harmful fats called trans fats, should be avoided, same is the case with junk fods and pastries. 4) aerated sweetened drinks (colas) are very harmful, have no nutrition value at all. 5) consume whole grain products, whole grain flours, do not use products made of refined flours like maida. 6) refrain from alcohol and smoking. All these things mean a healthy lifestyle. Thanks for the question and best of luck.

Diabetes can leave you exhausted, hence you need to manage diabetes with a correct lifestyle. In case of diabetes you have to eat nutrient dense food and exercise well. You need a fat loss diet which comprises of whole grains like jowar, bajra, wheat, brown rice, pulses like moong, musoor, bengal gram, lots of vegetables, fruits, eggs, fish, chicken, paneer, healthy oil, nuts and seeds. You need to eat them in right proportion. Avoid eating sugar and sweets, refined foods like maida, noodles pasta, white rice and products, bread. Drink a lot of water. Exercise atleast 5 times a week. Do not overeat. Eat 3 proper meals and 2 snack in between. Stop when your stomach is 80% full. Eat slowly.

At this young age and of an athletic, you can be fittest person if you decide to switch to herbal support of DM. I will not say to stop your current med now. Slowly when you improve, your potential side effects will start drifting away. Otherwise best of allopathic med can not stop side effects of DM and anti DM drugs. Ask who are suufering from decades. This does not mean that allopathic is bad. Its relevant for acute and emergent cases. But lifestyle improvement is poosible with herbs.

Dear lybrate-user, overweight is the main cause behind your diabetes. Immediately join a gymn to get rid of excess weight. If you cannot join gymn then make a habit of going for morning-walk for 1 hour daily. Take homoeopathic uranium nit 3x tablets (r. S. Bharhava company). Take one tablet thrice daily in empty stomach.

Diabetic patent who is under medication and sugar level is in limits, can use HONEY?

Diabetic patent who is under medication and sugar level is in limits, can use HONEY?
Mr. Lybrate-user, well, if blood sugar levels are in strict control with fasting closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg, hba1c%<7, then one may consider taking a spoonful a day. But honey is simply another form of cane sugar, with 50 % fructose & 50% glucose, plus some vitamins and antioxidants. It is bound to increase blood sugar levels almost immediately. Thanks for the question.

what is your weight ? pcod is the most common endocrine disorder nowadays and it is a lifestyle disorder. there is usually obesity and insulin resistance associated with it. the complex entity is known as metabolic syndrome. the treatment lies in changing your lifestyle ,eating foods of low g.i. index (low calorific value) and doing exercises to lose weight. try to start them (if not already) and maintain your bmi at 22 as it can only help . as for thyroid , it is usually not curable , so you have to take medicines for that.
