Dear lybrate-user, Glucose is the end product of carbohydrate digestion. Any food that has carbs will finally be broken down to simple sugar glucose for absorption into the body. This glucose gives energy to brain. Hence consumption of complex carbs like whole wheat flour or multigrain flour or oats does give glucose and it is released slowly into the blood stream helping to manage diabetes. Regards

Along with medicine, take regular exercise, reduce weight and control diet.If blood sugar is still high consult doctor

My latest blood sugar checked today at home is 114 mg/dl ( by One Touch Glucometer of Johnson & Johnson) and latest TSH level is 1.6 mIU/ml, T3 is 1.2 ng/ml and T4 is 10.0 mcg/dl. Is the blood sugar checked at home with this glucometer are as accurate as lab results? My latest Hb1Ac is 6.1. I got diabetes only a year back and this was not the case in the beginning. I do feel nausea in the morning even if I eat less, don't eat or eat full in the breakfast. I do feel full by just eating quite lesser amount of food than I used to eat before. So, what is the solution of my weariness everyday? Is it food or medicine? I have to take Metformin since it controls my blood sugar very effectively and it is safer drug than other drugs. I am basically Pharmacist and can understand that organs lose it's efficiency day by day in diabetes if not controlled within limits. But as I check my blood sugar every week or two at home, it generally comes within limit of 110 mg/dl with sometimes going out of limit once in a while by 10-20 points if I have eaten some sweets or eaten more carbs or eaten in more quantity. What habits I should follow in order to control blood sugar along with feeling energetic everyday?

Does dark chocolate affect the sugar level content of the body or for diabetic patients?
Dark chocolate without sugar is very bitter, but has benefits as it contains flavonoids and other anti oxidants. About 20 g a day does help insulin sensitivity. But eating large quantity adds to blood sugar level.

Scientists now know that the body does not register liquid calories in the same way it does solid calories. Drinking a grande caffe mocha, for instance, won't make you feel satiated the way eating a bowl of pasta will. Which means that although the caffe mocha actually has a greater number of calories than the pasta, you're still more likely to want a second cup from Starbucks than another plate of linguine. So monitor your intake of juice, soda, coffee drinks and wine. If you consume one of each of those beverages during the day, you'll have taken in at least 800 extra calories by nighttime — and you'll still be hungry. (Incidentally, alcohol may suppress the metabolism of fat, making it tougher for you to burn those calories.)

What is the solution?
It is a very difficult situation as most of the men are not satisfied with their wife mentally. If you mean that you are not satisfied with her physically then you need to visit an sexpert.

My mother (57+ yrs) is under treatment for Hypothyroid (Eltroxin 50 mcg), Hypertension (Olmezest 20 mg) & Osteoarthritis of knee joints (stage-2). Around 7-8 months back, she was diagnosed with mild anemia (Hb 10.6), which got corrected (Hb 12.4) after 2-3 months usage of 'Orofer XT' Around a week back, all of a sudden, she seems to feel lot of gas & indigestion & had to pass motion 15-16 times, out of which last 3-4 times are loose, while rest are normal. She also had stomach pain (around naval chord), which gets relieved after passing motion. This motion got stopped after taking couple of 'Lopamide' tablets in the evening. She was also seen by a medicine doctor on the same day, who had prescribed the following medicines - 1) Citran CT - twice daily for 5-days 2) Vigilac - twice daily for 10-days 3) PAN-D - empty stomach for 5-days. The antibiotic was stopped couple of days back, but she seems to have stomach pain & loose motion (3-times) yesterday evening. Also, she feels gas is not reduced much & she does not have appetite along with weakness. When we talked to the doctor over phone, he advised to continue PAN-D for 2 more weeks & nothing else. Are we on the right track of treatment ?
