HbA1C >6.4 is diabetic...and between 5.8-6.3 is prediabetic....nothing to worry on this part..prediabetes can be simply managed with only lifestyle changes...At ur present HbA1C no medication is required....follow the remedies below..: Include whole grains in the diet, such as wheat bread/pasta and brown rice. Cheese and yogurt prepared with skimmed (nonfat) milk may be taken. Use garlic, onion, bitter gourd, spinach, raw banana, and black plum. Make a flour mixture of 1 part barley, 1 part black chickpeas, and 4 parts whole-wheat flour and use this to form pancakes and bread. Avoid sweet, sour, and salty foods, potatoes, sweet potatoes, colocasia (taro), yams, fresh grains and pulses (legumes), whole yogurt (high in fat), and heavy, oily and spicy foods. Avoid sweet fruits like pineapple, grapes, mangoes, etc. Start doing some light exercise, such as brisk walking. Build up to a brisk walk of 30-40 minutes in the morning and again in the evening. Avoid sleeping during daytime

Mr. Lybrate-user, your lipids particularly ldl I fairly high, cholesterol is ok. You need to control fat intake particularly trans fats and saturated fats. Avoid deep fried item, egg yolk, red meat, high fat cheese etc. Do regular exercise for over 1 hour a day. Similarly avoid alcohol, certain fishes like sardines, herring, haddock, trout, salmon, scallops, mushrooms, shell fish and organ meat as well as red meat for reducing uric acid. No drug may be needed at this moment.

Facts And Myths About Diabetes

Facts And Myths About Diabetes

Is jaggery good for Diabetic patient, Facts & Myths About Diabetes Be Aware, Be Healthy!

MYTH-Jaggery is better or safe in diabetes :

FACT-Jaggery and sugar both are essentially same. Both contain sucrose, as they are prepared from sugar cane juice. Hence eating either of these will increase blood glucose considerably. In jaggery there are some vitamins and a few antioxidants. But both are bad for a diabetic person.
 

MYTH- Eating Sugar or Sweets causes Diabetes :

FACT -It is incorrect to say that eating sweets and / or sugar causes diabetes. Basically excess food intake will lead to excess production of glucose. That puts excess load on insulin producing cells in pancreas due glucotoxicity. Also due to central obesity  the fat around internal organs causes lipotoxicity affecting the beta cells. Therefore, excess food intake in general and weight gain  are the reasons for diabetes.


MYTH- Rice should not be eaten in diabetes :

FACT- Not really true. Because in south India this is the major or at times only main food. Rice has a high glycemic index so gets converted to glucose rapidly. So polished rice is not good. Brown rice is better. Quantity should be regulated. All other cereals  also are converted  glucose after digestion. 

MYTH- Diabetes is curable :

FACT-Diabetes is  mainly due deficiency of Insulin (hormone produced by Beta cells of pancreas), plus resistance to action of insulin, overweightor obesity  and inactivity. Therefore, to treat diabetes we need drugs that initiate insulin secretion, reduce insulin resistance. In some cases  insulin itself. Plus dietary control and regular exercise to maintain normal weight or reduce excess weight. Hence it can only be effectively controlled. Cure is not possible

MYTH-Allopathic Medications Damage Kidneys, so go for either Ayurvedic or Homeopathic Drugs :

FACT-In fact diabetes itself affects kidney, particularly the filtering membrane of glomerulurous  (a filtering unit in the kidney).   Even when diabetes fairly well controlled, kidney does get affected. The drugs used to treat diabetes  help in overcoming kidney damage. Therefore it is wrong to think that modern drugs cause kidney damage.

MYTH-Sugar intake is essential for body :

FACT- Some people keep asking that eating sugar is very necessary for getting energy for the body tissues. This is not at all true.  Because all the cereals like rice, jowar, wheat, ragi, bajra and other millets, contain starch as the main ingredient. Hence intake of each of these foods  provides glucose after digestion. So there is no separate need for taking sugar.

Few things to be remembered and practiced are :

  • Always use whole grain flour, as it contains a good amount of biber content for making chapati or roti.
  • Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads with every meal.
  • Consider fruits and green leafy vegetables as part of regular snacks
  • Take small meals on more number of occasion to avoid glucose surge.
  • Avoid Maida and foods made from it. It is probably worst kind of food that one can consume.
  • Form healthy food habits.

I have a very specific query. Do all the fruits contain sugar (s) as Fructose & not glucose? Eating any fruit [whole & not juice] does not increase Blood Glucose levels. If yes, then can a diabetic person eat all the fruits in whole form in any quantity? Thanks.

Yes, a daibetic person can eat any fruit but with caution. The total calorie requirements of your body is important (based on the intention to maintain your ideal weight ). A nutritionist or a dietitian can help you with a list of your favourite food and how much to consume according to your calorie needs. As you know anything we eat is converted into glucose for energy consumption, and through complex mechanism converts extra glucose into storage forms. But in case of Diabetes, due to insulin resistance or deficiency, the body is not able to use the glucose properly. With proper diet, exercise (and yoga), and proper medications - this can be managed. Read more about Daibetes and lifestyle changes from the internet and get empowered with the correct knowledge.

I am 36 year old female, I am patient of Wheat Allergy since 2009 due to Thyroid. What can I do?
wheat allergy is not due to thyroid. Wheat allergy is an allergic reaction to foods containing wheat, one of the top eight food allergens in the United States. Allergic reactions can result from eating wheat, but also, in some cases, by inhaling wheat flour.Epinephrine is an emergency treatment for anaphylaxis. for wheat allergy.

Diabetes management is very difficult.In spite of the drugs if you are having high blood sugars means either the dosage needs modification / change drug +strict diet management+brisk morning walk for 45mts 5 days a week.Consult a good dietician.

Dear Lybrateuser, - You should check whether there is any change in your diet that is if there is increase in carbohydrate intake, change in timing of food or medicine - to bring down the level decrease the quantity of carbs & instead have a protein food - try to take a walk for 10-15 min after dinner for proper digestion & also control of blood sugar - sometimes there may be an error in the technique of measuring the blood sample, if on two to three occasions reading is raised then take corrective measures.

You are 18. Usually the diabetes fluctuates with hormonal changes. However, your insulin doses need to be adjusted to maintain sugar levels to normal.

lybrate-userji, Thanks for the query. Looking at your weight and height yiur BMI is 39.22 kgs, showing almost grade 3 obesity. It is better for you to get your thyroid assay done. Because you may be already having hypothyroidism. Your ideal body weight should be 52 kgs as against you are 91 kgs. Hypothyroidism causes weight gain as one of the main symptoms. Plus also causes menstrual irregularity. So please check your thyroid hormmonal values and come back. Thanks.
