Foods That Diabetics Should Add In Their Diet!

Foods That Diabetics Should Add In Their Diet!

People with diabetes often face a dilemma when deciding which vegetables need to be placed in the plate and which ones they need to stay away from. Glycemic Index (GI) is one factor that helps a diabetic make the right food choices. It helps rate foods on how quickly the carbohydrates present in that food affect the blood sugar levels. It is categorized as high, medium or low GI level. While low GI foods help maintain blood sugar levels, high GI vegetables can raise blood sugar levels exponentially.

Here is a list of vegetables that are excellent to maintain blood sugar levels:

1 . Broccoli

It is considered to be super effective in eliminating diabetes. It contains a compound called sulforaphane which triggers anti-inflammatory processes that control blood sugar level and prevent cardiovascular damage that is a consequence of diabetes.

2 . Carrots

Carrots are always a preferable choice for any meal plan. There have always been numerous reasons to consider them to be an integral part of one’s diet; from treating one’s vision to improving the immune system. 1 cup serving of carrots has nearly 5 grams of carbohydrates. According to a study of Stanford University School of Medicine, carrots help in the prevention of Type 2 diabetes among people who have a genetic possibility of the disease.

3 . Spinach

Spinach is one of the most in demand leafy vegetables. Regular consumption helps keep away a plethora of diseases and make one fit and healthy. It is also excellent for regulating blood sugar levels. Spinach is rich in vitamin K, magnesium, folate, phosphorous, potassium and zinc. It also contains various flavonoids and plant chemicals. All such essential nutrients make it one of the most sought after vegetable for diabetes.

4 . Collard Greens

Collard greens ( or saag) are excellent sources of vitamin C. They help to lower cortisol in the body and reduce inflammation. It also contains a micronutrient called alpha lipoic acid that helps the body in dealing with stress.It also reduces the excess blood sugar level and strengthens the damaged nerves because of diabetic neuropathy.

5 . Red Onions 

Red onions are rich in antioxidants apart from giving an attractive colour to the salads. They are a good source of fibre, potassium and folate that are good for regulating the blood sugar level in addition to curing various heart ailments

Please answer me to this question.
Dear, since your father has high sugar, he should follow a strict diet wherein he should restrict intake of sugar & sweetened foods like cakes, chocolates, mithai etc. He should have more of fibrous foods like fruits & vegetables, dry fruits. He should also avoid fried foods which increase weight &are harmful on such a condition. Along with diet he should also do some regular exercise like walking, jogging etc to keep his sugar indrt control.

Lybrate-user, before getting pregnant earlier were you asked to get thyroid test and blood glucose (ogtt) test done? these are mandatory now. Because quite a few women are developing hypothyroidism, which does affect conception, if conceived then fetal development and if not in control then pregnancy outcome can be bad, as experienced by you. Similarly gestational diabetes (diabetes developing during pregnancy) is seen in about 20% females. Now if you want to have a baby, please get both the tests done. Since you are already on thyroxine treatment, the test is needed to see what is the tsh level. It is recommended that even before conceiving tsh should be maintained around 2 mu/l and during pregnancy - 1st trimester 0.1 to 2 mu/l, 2nd trimester 0.3 to 3 mu/l & 3rd trimester 0.3 to 3.1 mu/l. If these levels are not achieved, then as mentioned earlier there can be problems with conception and fetal development. Similarly gestational diabetes is also a problematic condition. So get that test too done. Once your tsh is maintained as mentioned, then there will be no problem if you have any doubt, please do come back. Thanks.

Is pomegranate, mangoes, bananas bad for diabetics. Which fruits are good for diabetes.
All fruits are good for diabetics, they have to be taken in moderate amounts and at proper time. Fruit juices are harmful as they raise sugar suddenly but fruits contain lot of fibre,raise sugar slowly.

I am suffering from hypothyroidism and taking thyroxine from last 3 years with the prescription of doctor. Earlier my tsh remain near to 6 or 4 but now it declined to 0.25. My doctor is still saying to continue 50 and 75 mg thyroxine on alternate basis but I am feeling some kind of weakness in my body and sometimes feels dizziness and fainting, low level of energy in body. Is it due to the excess fall in tsh level and whether I should continue taking 50 and 75 mg alternate or shall minimize it?

TSH as such does not cause any symptoms. They are caused by Thyroid hormone. TSH levels reflect avilaibility of Thyroid hormone. When Thyroid hormne level falls TSH (Thyroid stimilating hormone) secreted from pituitary gland to stimulate thyroid to produce more thyroid hormone and when thyroid hormone level in blood rises (due to excessive production by thyroid gland or exogenously taken, TSH level falls. Intreating patients we take help of TSH levels in blood.
