Hi Recurrent low sugars can be because of high insulin dose. Especially with long acting insulin it takes time to increase blood sugars. If she has these problems again and again please consult for insulin dose change. And for now she may require intravenous glucose and.close monitoring of blood sugars.

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.

Last year my a1c was 7.3 and now as recent report it is 6.6. My Dr. Has not prescribed any medicine but asked me to do regular walk and exercise of one hour which I do without fail. Except on occassion once in 4/5moths I do not take sweets and no sugar in tea. At present my fasting sugar is 105/112 and 2 hrs after meal it comes 140/155. Random also 105/111 what is your suggestion.

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.

YES, it can be diabetic neuropathy. long standing diabetic complication. the symptoms are pain,numbness,tingling or burning sensation particularly in lower limb extremities. there are many good medicines to provide relief, but remember the thing which benefits most in the long run is tight glycemic control.

By birth uric acid can not be higher than normal. You must get treatment of both high uric acid as well as cholesterol. At the same time you get treatment for liver because liver dysfunction may cause rise of these elements. You also take care of your meal. For cholesterol avoid fry, fatty & fast foods. For uric acid preferably be vegetarian, avoid protein diet also leguminus foods like dal products.

What should be an ideal diet for 50 year male with activity living habit who is suffering from diabetics.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
What should be an ideal diet for 50 year male with activity living habit who is suffering from diabetics.
Mr. Lybrate-user, diet plan for a person with diabetes is not very different f than one for a normal person. He needs to take a balanced diet, with 50 to 55% of calories coming from carbs, 15% from proteins & 25 to 30 % from fats. But major difference is in relation to type of foods. He should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), fructose corn syrup containing foods, highly processed food products and high fat milk products. He should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). Always use whole grain products and flour. Use more of millets and fiber containing seeds like flax seeds, fenugreek etc. As regards a specific diet plan for you I need to know following details: 1) fasting & pp glucose levels, hbac1%, 2) present drugs with dosage, 3) extent of daily exercise & 4) present diet pattern. You will have to plan caloric intake based on above and ideal body weight (72 kgs). Thanks.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

What is a juvenile diabetes and type 1 and type 2 diabetes and how to treat this disease and what precautions to take.
Rahil, Earlier Juvenile diabetes term was used for T1 DM, because it was thought that it occurs only in juveniles (children). Now it is called T1DM, where only insulin is needed for treatment and survival. T2DM is invariably in adults and older persons. There is lack of insulin and resistance to insulin plus patient is usually over weight. In case T2DM one can prevent it by adapting modified life style- regular exercise for more than 1 hour, restricted diet giving exact calories based on normal body weight, avoiding sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and aerated sweetened drinks. Consume more of fruits, green leafy vegetables and salads. Plus refrain from alcohol and smoking.
