My anty is suffering from sugar since last 2 year will you please give a diet plan for her Her fasting will below 160...
Mr. Lybrate-user, a diet plan for an individual patient has to be very specific. It will depend upon sugar levels, hba1c%, extent of exercise and ideal body weight plus present dietary pattern. So to suggest a specific plane lot more details are needed. However, following things can be considered: avoid sweets completely, no direct sugar or gur, no deep fried foods, no junk foods and pastries. Avoid aerated sweetened drinks, fructose corn syrup containing products, high fat containing milk products, ghee and butter. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits about 100 g a day. Always use whole grain flour for chapati and roti, no maida. Plus over all caloric intake has to be calculated on her ideal body weight, sugar lvel and extent of daily exercise.

What fruits I can eat in diabetes and can I eat watermalon and musk malon in diabetes.

What fruits I can eat in diabetes and can I eat watermalon and musk malon in diabetes.
You can eat fruits with low glycemic index like oranges, apple etc avoid fruits with high glycemic index like mango, custard apple etc. Melons have medium glycemic index so they can be consumed in moderation. The glycemic index uses a scale from 0 to 100, where 100 is pure glucose. A food which has a high gi will cause a large increase in blood sugar, while a food with a lower gi will not have much impact at all. Fruits contain lots of antioxidants and vitamins, and the sugar they contain is paired with lots of fiber so is less likely to spike your blood sugar.

Diabetes can be controlled effectively by lifestyle modifications. Daily brisk walking to jogging/ playing badminton, tennis, football, swimming etc. Eating healthy diet. Junk food and high calorie food must be avoided. Then comes medicines which will control blood sugars further low as needed.

Too much cholesterol in the blood can lead to cardiovascular disease. What you eat has a direct impact on your cholesterol level. In fact, a diet rich in fiber and other cholesterol-lowering foods may help lower cholesterol as much as statin medication for some people. Working with a registered dietitian and doctor is the key to develop and maintain a successful health program to manage it. I will inform you on how to make diet, lifestyle changes, make you understand instructions for taking medication because it won't work if you don't take it as directed. Consult privately for a holistic dietary therapy to solve your problems.

This is 57 years female from Kolkata. I'm a diabetic (take (GLIMEPIRIDE 2 mg + METFORMIN 500 mg) after breakfast & METFORMIN 500 mg after dinner) & 10 iu insulin overnight ,fasting 80, PP 287 measured today. I want to know what should be done to control my PP sugar level? Shall I increase Insulin? Or take glimepiride 1 mg before lunch? Please suggest complete list of medicine for my case For the last 1 year, I'm seeing that my fasting glucose level is under 100, but PP is above 200. One more thing, I'm using Basalog cartridge (Insulin Glargine (100IU) made of Biocon) Can I change my insulin to Glaritus (Wockhardt) or Basugine (Lupin)? The later are low cost insulin, will be a price saver, That's why asking.

You can add alpha glucosidase inhibitor to control PP after consulting your doctor. You can also switch to basal plus tnsulin therapy consulting your physician/ diabetologist/ endocrinologist by adding short acting insulin before largest meal. Yes you can switch to wockhardt or lupin brand for economic reason otherwise they are not superior what you are already taking.

Following are the tips to prevent onset/or control diabetes 1-losing extra weight:-is the most significant thing which can make a big difference to your health. It helps lower your blood pressure and cholesterol too. Waist of more than 80 cm in women & 90 cm in man are at risk 2- constant and regular food timings:- it will improve your metabolic activity and helps reducing your weight. 3- split your meals and eating in moderate amount:-splitting your meals into 3-4 times per day (including snacks) and eating in fair amount, improves your metabolic rate as the food you take is not concentrated at one time. 4- no long gaps and skipping of meals:-never miss out breakfast. 5- no overeating:-never eat in a bulk on one time remember to eat your food slowly, chew well. 6- proper exercise and work outs:-exercise is a fast way to trim down calories, extra weight and controlling glucose level. Brisk walking for 30 min. Atleast five times a week is the best. You can also try cycling, swimming, dancing. Timings for exercise should be fixed and regular. Do not eat right away after a workout. 7-constant and regular timings for medication 8-avoid fried foods, meat, fats and sweets. 9- take high-fibre and complex carbohydrates:-like oats. Add whole grain foods in your diet. Avoid white bread, pasta, pizza, candies, and snacks. Instead include high-fiber carbohydrates like wheat bran, flaxseed and methi seeds to your wheat flour. This will increase fibre in your diet. 10-drink enough fluids:-keep your body well hydrated. 11. Fresh vegetables and fruits:- these contain a lot of minerals as well as nutrients. Include sprouts in the diet as they are easily digestible.

Taking the following could also help in accelerating the weight loss process: taking pranacharya medohar rasayan (1-1) twice a day; taking medohar guggul (2-2) twice a day; pranacharya slim capsule (1-1) twice a day. 2. It is advisable to avoid junk, fried, fermented or oily food. You should also avoid the intake of alcohol, sugar, dairy products. 3. You should increase the intake of oats and cereals.
