Please let me know if Honey can be used as alternative to Sugar for green tea (or any non milk based tea). I was told Honey can not be used with hot water. Is it a myth then?

Mr. lybrate-user, Warm water, lemon with honey is recommended by some as a treatment for reducing weight. As a doctor I am not able to explain how or why it works. Honey is same as either sugar or jaggery, containing sucrose, plus it is having some vitamins and antioxidants. Can be used as a substitute to sugar. Thanks.

From last 2 years my sugar level was 130 and now it is 150-160. what medicine should I have? Please help me.

From last 2 years my sugar level was 130 and now it is 150-160. what medicine should I have? Please help me.
Dear kindly specify whether these are fasting sugar values or post meals. As fasting 150 is very high and if post meals it falls in prediabetic range. Depending on that, tablet metformin would have to be started alongwith exercise and weight reduction.

taking 18 x 50 mcg tablets at a time is not going to cause any problematic symptoms either immediately or later also. Since one week has passed you need not worry about it. But do not repeat such mistakes again.

Both of your problems are due to diabetes, so you need strict control of blood sugar and take multivitamins and folic acid, antioxidants.

What are all the reasons for diabetes and how to maintain the sugar level in our body.

What are all the reasons for diabetes and how to maintain the sugar level in our body.
Hye, thanks for the query. 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 - the sugar levels will fluctuate depending on what you ate or did not eat, stress levels and activity levels. You have to try and manage a balanced carb intake. Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. You have to eat 3 main and 3 mid meals. Your diet must include whole grains, seasonal fruits, vegetables, small amounts of nuts and dairy and pulses or dals or lean meats like chicken or fish and egg. Starchy vegetables need to be planned into the diet. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Avoid exercise if sugar levels are above 250mg/dl. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if blood sugar levels are not in control, causing hyperglycemia, then there is considerable loss of glucose through urine. This leads to weight loss. Once blood sugar is well controlled, weight loss can be prevented. Being a diabetic person you have to take a restricted diet, that provide exact calories based on the daily need. Some additional proteins can be considered which along with regular exercise to build muscles and weight. Joining a gym should be beneficial. But blood sugar levels should be fasting about 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<7. With regards.

You need to reschedule your insulin doses the level of insulin in the evening as you mentioned is very low and you may go in to coma due to hypoglycemia keep a pouch of sugar always with you for emergency. Consult your doctor immediately for review of your insulin dosing.

Rosemary And Sage • Mix rosemary and sage in coconut oil or even coconut milk and apply it in the affected areas of your head. • Leave it there for 15 to 20 minutes and wash it off. • Repeat this process four times a day for a few weeks to get rid of bald patches. Egg • Apply beaten egg on your scalp at least two to three times a week to help in promoting hair growth. • It works even better when mixed with olive oil. Lemon And Pepper Cons • Take 8 to 10 pepper cons and seeds of seven to eight lemons and crush them together. • Use this powder directly or you can also add little water to make it smooth paste and then apply it on your bald areas twice a day. • Repeat for a few weeks and this remedy will help in improving blood circulation and stimulate hair growth.

Dear have you been taking opinion from your doctor. I would say this can also be due to increased sugar levels and weight. Please ensure you are eating something healthy and do at least 30-40 minutes of exercise. You are just 45 and I think there is a long way to go. Do not worry, stay positive and start taking action on how to correct. Please get in touch in case you need further assistance. Thanks

Is cheese good for diabetic patient. What is the benifit in consuming cheese. Which kind of cheese is really good?

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Bangalore
Cheese has a very low glycemic index and has minimal impact on blood sugar values in a person with diabetes. It is a great option for a snack and pairs well with carbohydrate containing foods to blunt their ability to raise blood sugar. But choose low-fat varieties.
