My mom has a sugar and heart disease what she can do for control his sugar and what she can eat.
First thing for your mom is finding a good doctor in your city. Second thing is to seek his advise every 2-3 months. Keep on checking blood sugar every month. Exercise, diet and drugs in that order of importance will keep the sugar and heart disease under control. Diabetes cannot be cured.

Hello lybrate-user, first line of treatment for diabetes is to avoid sugar, sweets, white rice, potato, sweet fruits and avoid sedentary lifestyle. At least 40mints of walk or 30mints exercise is must. If her diabetes is still more after avoiding sweet and doing exercise then she should consult a diabetologist.

What is the proper diet for a diabetic patient? What should eat or what should not?
Diabetes can be controlled/managed by a proper regulated diet and exercise. Eat every two hours mini meals. Don't eat big meals. Take more green vegetables/salads. Eat whole grain food/grains like ragi, wheat, jowar instead of refined grains like maida/ sooji/ white bread etc. Reduce foods with high GI Index like potato, white rice, banana, mango. Avoid all forms of simple sugars like Colas, juices, sweets, cakes, biscuits, pizzas, noodles etc. Eat daily fruits  with low/medium GI index like apple, guava, mosambi, orange.  .Eat proteins like dals, sprouts, egg, chicken etc with every minimeal. Drink lot of water. One glass every hour. Do at least 30-45 mins of exercise everyday. Walk for 10 mins after every meal. These steps can help reduce sugar levels.

Few details are required to give correct advise, like weight, height, waist circumference, level of physical activity every day and the dosage of medications taken. Ppg 0.2 needs to be taken with each meal with first bite. As regards the food on tour one can stick to dal roti, salads, curd and a little rice (if needed). Breakfast could be upama, 2 idlis, 1 -2 plain dosas with nil oil, and half apple or 1 orange etc. Dinner should be similar to lunch. Avoid sweets, pastries, deep fried foods, drink dilute butter milk. A glass of skimmed milk can be had at bed time.

Mr. lybrate-user Dey, From the details given these are some conclusions: 1) Fasting and PP glucose levels are high. Idealy FBG should be closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg. HbA1c% is good. It means you have to be careful in your daily food intake. 2 )TSH is normal. 3) Rest of the parameters (LFT, lipids & blood picture) are normal. 4) Grade fatty liver is not very significant. But if you indulge in alcohol then stopping it is ideal. 5) BP is high, it should be 130/80 mm Hg. Thanks.

Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week.

Mr Abid Ali, If he has developed diabetes then it should be treated with appropriate drugs right away. In his case insulin injections are required, because of renal transplant. Dose of the drug will depend upon blood sugar levels (Fasting, PP and HbA1c%). Plus it is essential to quickly control sugar levels.

Mr Paul, Erectile dysfunction is a common complication of long standing diabetes. One of the most important need is to have excellent blood sugar control (fasting <100 mg and PP<160 mg) and HbA1c%<6.8. Because if you have not been having strict control of blood sugars then micro vascular damage causes ED. So please give all the details like above and come in a private conversation where I will be able to give specific suggestions. In this communication we are supposed to give only gernrral guide lines.

Suffering from diabetes. Sugar level touches 300, What to do?
Hi, I am a registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator and a doctor (general physician) who will help you in your diabetes problem. Do let me know your hba1c value? also you need to provide me your daily food intake details. There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed: take high fiber prescribed diet which includes soluble fibre like apple, isabgol etc. Get more physical activity by prescription from a registered dietitian eat a balanced diet which includes whole grains and excludes all refined products like maida as prescribed by a registered dietitian, if you're overweight, diabetes prevention may hinge on weight loss. Every pound you lose can improve your health, and you may be surprised by how much. Participants in one large study who lost a modest amount of weight around 7 percent of initial body weight and exercised regularly reduced the risk of developing diabetes by almost 60 percent. I being a registered dietitian and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their diabetes problem. I will also prescribe medicines that will speed up the time to achieve your weight management goals. Do reply back for private consultation.

Consult doctor always for medicines. Do not take medicines by self. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain .

How can I cure high blood pressure, sugar and high cholesterol levels simultaneously? what should i do ?
This is a typical high stress disease pattern. If you exercise, walk or jog for 60 m. , do yogasans, control diet, you can overcome all the three problems. See a good physician who can advise correctly.
