If you are a diabetic patient you need to focus on your calorie intake as it will directly affect your sugar levels. In morning have oats cheela + milk or you can take oats idli, upma etc .In mid morning you take 1 allowed fruit (papaya/apple) 100gm then in lunch take 2 chapati + vegetable/dal+curd+salad, in evening you can take 1 cup tea with 5-6 soaked almonds or high fibre digestive biscuit. Dinner same as lunch. Avoid taking high calorie fruits like mango, litchi, banana, cheeku, grapes.Avoid taking vegetables like potato, sweet potato, arbi. Avoid direct intake of sugar and try to avoid sugar free. Team Nutrihealth.

Hello, yes you don't have thyroid disorder called (euthyroid. But please do complete urine examination in good lab, because the pain in penile region may be either due to urine infection or I think you have some phobia or anxiety or feeling of guilty because you may have practiced masturbation in the past. Please be opened, give your history completely and tell your symptoms openly.

Dear lybrate-user! Desi Gud jaggery is as good and bad as simple plain sugar, soft drinks and colas. It has no added benefits which is a myth.

What are the symptoms of Diabetes and what are the precautions must be taken to keep Diabetes in control? Does only adult suffer from this disease or even children also?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Diabetes mellitus usually does not produce easily recognisable symptoms, that is one of the reasons why many persons do not realise that they have the problem. When fully developed it may cause excessive urination, excessive hunger, excessive thirst, unexplained weight loss and tiredness. Precautions to be taken keep diabetes in control are taking prescribed medications regularly without missing a dose, take a restricted diet, that provides exact calories based on ideal body weight, extent of daily exercise and blood sugar levels. Exercise daily for at least 1 hour, consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). Avoid alcohol and smoking. Also avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and sweetened aerated drinks. There are mainly two types of diabetes t1 where there is total absence of insulin, patient needs insulin for survival and for treatment. This is seen even in young children from very early childhood. T2 is due to either lack of insulin or resistance to its action or both, this occurs in later yaers, earlier above 40 years. Now a days seen even in teen ages. Main reason for this is considered to be over weight and inactivity.

Your tsh has come down significantly. This means right now yoy are in hyperthyroid state. If you are taking thyroxine, the dose needs to be decreased. If not taking any medications you need detail clinical evalution for cause of this change.

Hi Doctor, I am Male 45. Currently, I am taking medications MACOX PLUS 600 mg, MACROZIDE 750 mg and ECOS 1000 mg for Tuberculosis. I am not feeling hungry, from the time I started these medications. Can I take any Vitamin supplement tablets, while am on this medications. If Yes, could you please suggest something to overcome Loss of Appetite. Thank you.

Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, you can take vitamin supplements since your diet may not be adequate. Any vitamin supplement capsule is fine. Daily one would be good enough, like multivitamin combinations. There are a number of brands. Plus it better if you take some liquid tonic about 1/2 hour before food, which will stimulate appetite, a preparation like neogodine elixer 2 tsf 3 times a day. Thanks.

It's difficult to decide the type of diabetes from the info provided. At your age, type 2 or mody are the commonest types. However, type 1 could also occur, though less common. The only way to decide would be to do the following tests: 1) serum c peptide 2) gad-65 antibodies 3) hba1c.

I am a diabetic at present my fasting sugar is 196 and pp is 274. From last 1 month I have started walking. But now suffering from knee pain. Pl suggest medicine and exercises for me. Being banker I have a sitting of 8 hours.

BPTh/BPT, MPTh/MPT

Knee advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

Hi, I am having frequent urination problem. Like 3 to 5 timeswithin half an hour. But it does not happen regularly. Is this symptom of diabetics. Can you please help me in this. Thanks.

Hi, Frequency of urination is due to a few reasons 1) Diabetes mellitus 2) Diabetes insipidus 3) Irritable /overactive bladder 4) urine infection 5) drinking coffee and tea (they are diuretics) 6) drinking lots of fluids I am not sure if you are experiencing any other symptoms like increased thirst, increased hunger, losing weight, burning sensation when urinating, fever, Lower abdominal pain etc. You could get a fasting and post prandial blood glucose done to rule out diabetes. A complete urine examination with microscopy will rule out any urine infection. It would also help if you could consult a physician or urologist to diagnose your problem and who can provide appropriate treatment. Thank you.

Antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help,

First get your blood sugar tested in fasting sample and 2 hrs after meal and get the diabetes possibility out of the way.... That is easy and cheap. Don't waste time worrying about it.

Diet Tips to Prevent, Control and Reverse Diabetes

MBBS, MRCGP ( UK), Diploma in Diabetes (UK), DFSRH (UK), DRCOG (UK)

Diet Tips to Prevent, Control and Reverse Diabetes

Diabetes is a chronic progressive condition of glucose abnormality. A patient with diabetes loses the capacity to regulate his blood glucose and hence there are high circulating levels of glucose in his blood. This is either due to less production of insulin hormone or the body loses the sensitivity to respond to the insulin hormone normally or both. The incidence of diabetes in general population is increasing fairly rapidly due to our erratic work schedule followed by lack of exercise and sleep. 

Further, it is aggravated by our overindulgence in high sugary food and junk food. But, the good news is that you can control and even reverse diabetes (at least in the initial stages) by following some simple dietary tips. People have a misconception that “Dieting = Starving “. This is completely wrong. Further people also think that to enhance the taste of any dish it should have lot of oil, ghee, butter. This is again wrong. You can make your dish delicious even by using healthy ingredients and reducing the fats, oil and sugar in it. You can enhance the taste by using spices which are good for health as well as for digestion. Following a healthy diet means that you are eating nutritious food which is both healthy and tasty. 

Here are a few dietary tips you should follow to keep your blood sugar levels in check: 

  1. Include plenty of vegetables in your diet, more the better. At least half of your plate should be filled with vegetables; this can be in salad form or can also be in form of curries/subzi which is prepared using less oil. Eating vegetables helps to bulk you up, you do not feel hungry and thus you would not be consuming high-calorie food like fats or carbohydrates. Vegetables have plenty of fibre. Eating vegetables also help to release the glucose from carbohydrates slowly so that your blood glucose levels do not fluctuate much. Green leafy vegetables are excellent sources of Vitamin-A. Beans are rich sources of protein too. 
  2. Carbohydrates are needed for your body; you derive the necessary energy from these carbohydrates. But you should consume them in a portion of about 1/3-1/4th of your plate – in other words, 2-3 phulkas, a bowl of rice etc. Use whole grains rather than polished grains. Whole grains of rice, wheat will release glucose into your blood in a slower fashion than polished rice or wheat. Whole grains also have much needed essential vitamins and minerals, the polished grains lose these vitamins during the process of dehusking and polishing. Include plenty of millets like jowar, bajra, Ragi/pearl millets etc. Include oats, quinoa, brown rice, broken wheat, wheat rava, etc. Avoid food items made with maida. 
  3. Make sure you eat pulses. Pulses are a good source of protein. Sprouts are filled with protein and fibre. Try adding sprouts to your rice, noodles or salads. Non-vegetarian food is a very good source of protein. You can take egg, chicken and fish. Avoid mutton or organ meat. 
  4. Restrict animal fats like butter, cheese. Also, restrict large quantities of oil and ghee. Avoid Vanaspati/dalda. 
  5. Milk is the perfect combination of protein and carbohydrate and can control blood sugar levels. Take a glass of milk when you experience low sugar symptoms. People who don't drink milk can consume yoghurt/curd or buttermilk. Milk, curd and buttermilk are good sources of calcium.
  6. Consume fruits such as papaya, pear, orange, guava, small bowl of musk melon, water melon, apples, etc. Don’t eat fruits which have high sugar content such as mangoes or grapes, custard apple, chikoo. 
  7. Foods which are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids are excellent in combating diabetes. These include flax seeds and nuts. You can take 5-7 nuts everyday like almonds, cashew nuts, walnuts etc. 

There are few everyday tips which you should follow: 

  1. Make sure to have small frequent meals comprising of high-fibre and low in carbohydrate foods. This is to make sure that you do not experience low sugar levels as you would be taking medicines for your diabetes. 
  2. Methi or fenugreek seeds are good for glucose control too. Soak one tablespoon of the seeds in 100 ml of water overnight and have it in the morning. 

Tip for sticking with a diabetes-friendly diet plan: 

  1. First and foremost, take small, manageable steps. 
  2. Choose one aspect you want to work on. For e.g. if you eat junk food 4-5 times a week, make a conviction of consuming junk food only once a week. After you have mastered this, then go for another aspect. This is to make sure that you are not overwhelmed with the prospect of lot of changes and that you can take pleasure in the fact that you could make one positive change. This will provide you enthusiasm to likewise make other changes. 
  3. The mantra that you should be following should be “small portions of food”. So instead of helping yourself to 3 ladoos or 2 bowls of kheer, you should limit yourself to 1 ladoo or ½ ladoo. That way you will still derive the pleasure of eating the ladoo (and satisfy your craving) but you would not have consumed that many calories as you would have done if you had eaten 3 ladoos.
  4. As well as following a diet, make sure that you get some exercise. It is recommended to exercise at least 45 minutes every day for 5 days of the week. You can go on fast walk, running, jogging, cycling, swimming etc. 
  5. You can even break your exercise time into small chunks – maybe you can exercise 15 minutes 3 times a day. If you have never exercised start with 5-10 minutes of walking, you can then gradually increase the intensity of the exercise.

I am 69 years old and suffering from Type 2 Diabetes which is under control with Metamorphine Hydrochloride Twice daily. I am fond of Bananas but have been advised not to take as they contain lot of Sugar. Can I start taking now as per your article?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for your query. Generally for a person with diabetes fruits like bananas, chikkoos. Grapes and mangoes are not good as they have a fairly high sugar content. However, if one has strict blood glucose control with fasting closer to 100 mg, PP 160 to 170 mg & HbA1c%<7, then one can take a banana occasionally, that too a small one. Banana has many benefits, but being too sweet it is to be restricted. You have only mentioned that blood glucose is in control, but no values are given, so difficult to give exact answer. Thanks.
