Mr. Lybrate-user, to control diabetes following things have to be done: start treatment with appropriate drugs, take a restricted diet, giving exact calories based on ideal body weight, blood sugar levels and extent of exercise done daily. So she has to be put on appropriate drugs first.

With diabetes itself, we have to face problems in other parts of our body with due course of time, some gets it sooner and some later it depends on your mental status, how u took your problem, what all u r doing to control it, try to take minimum dose of medicine while keeping your sugar levels normal. This will help u a lot.

I am 54 yrs old suffering from diabetes, advice food schedule.

Advanced Aesthetics
Ayurveda,
The increase in the blood sugar levels damages nerves and blood vessels. It also leads to complications like cardiovascular diseases, strokes, kidney problems, blindness, dental problems and amputations. High blood glucose levels also damage nerves and blood vessels. Diabetes can also lead to depression, fertility issues, and increased risk of other diseases and lack of mobility as the age of the person increases. It is very difficult to find out what exactly triggers diabetes, but health experts say that genes and environmental factors are responsible for rise in blood glucose levels. There are two types of diabetes- type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. Let us study the causes that give rise to type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Diabetes is a grave medical condition, but with a healthy diet and regular exercise, managing the condition becomes a child? s play. Here are a handful of diabetes home remedies every diabetic can rely on to keep fluctuations of sugar levels under control. Bitter gourd: bitter gourds are one among the most effective ways for preventing sugar level fluctuations. Being a safe vegetable, this iron-rich gourd can be consumed by anyone. It influences the glucose metabolism in the body and helps stimulate pancreatic insulin secretion. Known to thwart off insulin resistance, bitter gourd is equally beneficial for people suffering from type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Drink a glass of bitter gourd juice, flavored with a little honey, every morning to keep diabetes away. Guava is rich in both vitamin c and fiber, both that help in maintaining normal blood sugar levels. A very good home remedy for diabetes. Just peel the skin and consume one fruit daily to reap its benefits get some physical activity daily to burn calories and stay in shape. This will also reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Have a lot of fiber in the form of fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and whole grains any queries inform me.

Dear lybrate-user your mother's sugar is high and that is affecting her many organs including her eyes. High blood sugar levels give rise to multiple problems in body and its not just temporary control of sugar which achieves results but consistent control that matters the most. Pls understand that to help your mother avoid bigger problems in future you need to make dietary adjustments, exercise protocols and medicine optimization for which you follow certain principles. Keep fasting blood sugar below 110 and pp i. E after 2 hrs meals blood sugar below 160. For this cut on all high calorie foods. Ask her to exercise. And follow advice for medicines.

Hello sir, hope you are doing good. Pls don't stop bp medication, unless doctor ask you to stop. Diabetes, bp require a long term medication. But this might also lead to your constipation problem. If you have constipation more than occasionally or have severe pain or bleeding, it's important to check-in with your doctor as these symptoms can be a sign of a more serious digestive disorder. However, in most cases constipation is just a sign that your diet needs more fiber. The average adult needs between 25 and 30 grams of fiber a day to ward off constipation, far less than most of us typically eat. To avoid bloating and cramping, you'll want to gradually add fiber to your diet. Badam, orange, apple has more fiber pls eat as raw. Dont make a juice of it. Let me suggest you some best fiber supplement from who certified. This fiber is easily digestible and give a best result you need to take after meals in the afternoon and evening. Just leave a message to me on my private questions. Have a nice day.

I am 50 yrs old female. I have suffering from high uric acid 10.10. What medicine can I take to reduce the uric acid level and also tell the diet. Thanks.

There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed to protect against future flares or prevent gout or uric acid problems from occurring in the first instance: maintain a high fluid intake (2-4 liters a day) avoid alcohol eat a balanced diet limit fish, meat and poultry intake. If attempting to lose weight, avoid low-carbohydrate diets. If carbohydrate intake is insufficient, the body is unable to burn its own fat properly, releasing substances called ketones into the bloodstream. This results in a condition called ketosis that can increase the level of uric acid in the blood. It is most important to avoid foods that are high in purines, to ensure that the levels of uric acid in the blood do not get too high. Here is a list of high-purine foods to be wary of: beef kidneys brains dried beans and peas liver mackerel yeast fermented products (breads etc) mushrooms lose some weight by walking or other exercise, avoid meats and get always be on a prescribed diet as prescribed by a registered dietitian. I am a registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator and a doctor.

Whether insulin is better than oral medicine for diabetic patients?

Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
Ideally, insulin is found in our body. So it is better than the oral drugs. But the pain of taking multiple insulin injections throughout the day along with multiple pricks for monitoring blood sugar makes oral medicines the 1st choice of treatment. Also, when oral meds cannot control blood sugar, insulin the only choice available then.

Hello I am sure you are aware of importance of having proper weight. So it is necessary for you to exercise more preferably brisk walking for more than one hour a day. Simultaneously cut down your calories by 500 per day. You have work towards bringing your bmi nearer 23 kg per sq meter. This will help you reduce swelling and improve fitness.
