I am 34 years old suffering from diabetes type 1. I am suffering from joint pain.
If you are a diabetic then it is very important for you to do some regular physical exercise so the tone of your muscles remains good. Well toned muscles will prevent joint pain. This is a common cause, but in diabetics vit d3 deficiency is common, it reflects in form of such aches and pains. Please get your vitamins d3 checked, if it is low, take proper supplements by consulting a near by doctor.

Hello, Thanks for the query. It is difficult give any comment as there is absolutely no information mentioned on blood glucose levels & HbA1c% also BP readings. Unless those details are known, nothing can be said. Please also mention weight, height and extent of exercise. I do not understand what do you mean by "taking natural pill" If you are looking for any guidance or specific advice, then please come back with all the necessary details. Secondly if a person has confirmed diabetes, then there is definite need for treatment with specific anti-diabetic drugs, plus diet control and regular exercise. Thanks.

5 Ways To Beat Diabetes

5 Ways To Beat Diabetes

India has the largest number of diabetics in the world. Around 6.2 crore people in India suffer from diabetes. Many patients with diabetes in India are still undiagnosed. More than 95% of these patients have type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes results from the body's ineffective use of insulin. It is usually diagnosed in the age group of 35-45. It can be prevented by healthy diet and exercise.

The patients who are diagnosed with diabetes and even those who do not have the disease can benefit by following these 5 effective ways to beat diabetes.

1. Make healthy food choices

Taking care of your diet is one of an essential components to manage and prevent diabetes.

-switch to oils with a high volume of monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats like olive oil, canola oil, soybean oil or rice bran oil. Limit intake to one tablespoon a day.

-restrict intake of foods that have a high glycemic index like white bread, white rice, fatty foods, and soda.

-consume foods with a low glycemic index like multigrain aata, whole grains, daals, most fruits, non-starchy vegetables and carrots.

-limit consumption of fast food. Studies show that young adults who ate fast food more than twice a week developed insulin resistance (a diabetes risk factor) at twice the rate of people who weren't fast food junkies.

2. Watch your weight

Losing weight can help to regulate blood sugar levels.

-if you have type 2 diabetes, losing just 4-6 kgs can lower your glucose levels.

-the way fat is distributed in the body can also impact diabetes risk and management.

-people who have abdominal adiposity (fat around the belly) are more prone to type 2 diabetes than those with fat mostly in the thighs, hips, and buttocks.

3. Exercise regularly

Regular exercise can lower blood glucose and possibly reduce the amount of medication you need to treat diabetes, or even eliminate the need for medication.


-get your doctor's approval before starting an exercise program.

-even if you do not lose any weight, exercise can help keep type 2 diabetes under control.

-start slowly with a low-impact exercise such as walking, swimming or jogging.

-exercise, at least, three times a week for about 30 to 45 minutes.

-warm up for 5 minutes before starting to exercise and cool down for 5 minutes after exercise.

-always carry a source of carbohydrate with you so you'll be ready to treat low blood glucose.

4. Manage stress better

Stress can make blood sugar levels harder to control.

-engage in any relaxation technique to ward off stress.

-the best techniques include yoga, meditation, deep breathing exercises.

-you may join a yoga club nearby or else take out 10-15 minutes every day to sit quietly with yourself and practice meditation.

5. Go for regular health check-ups

Diabetes requires lifelong commitment towards following a healthy lifestyle, taking medicines on time and getting regular checkups to detect any complications.

-check your blood sugar levels at home at least once a week.

-get your hba1c levels checked at least twice a year. 

-in addition, make sure that your eyes, kidneys, heart, and skin are in optimal health.

-visit an eye specialist once a year to detect any signs of eye damage (diabetic retinopathy).

-get your kidney function tests done at least 2 times a year.

-inspect your feet regularly for any signs of numbness, pain or growth that may lead to ulceration and complications.

I am 41 years old I have heavy diabetic for the past 5 years. And I have taking insulin for past 4 years. But I cant reduce the insulin level. What should I do for the same ?

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 - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for more than 2-3 hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Fruits should be had as a mid meal. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Hello sir, gaining weight while controlling your blood sugar can be difficult, you have to recognize which foods affect your blood sugar and which do not. For weight gain that also allows consistent blood sugar control, add more healthy fats to your diet . include non starchy carbs in your food like broccoli, cabbage, green veggies, egg plant. Add healthy calories to your diet, include healthy fats like avocado, olives, walnuts, almonds, seeds like flaxseeds,.

Hello.In hypothyroidism body metabolism gets very slow, due to which any food you eat turns in fat form very easily. So try to avoid extra fat, like butter, ghee,excess oil, fried things, junk food, excess sweet ,etc. Instead of these things, you must add lots of fruits, salads,like cucumber, vegetables ,sprouts whole grain .Do regular exercise. If you need to know any consultation, you can ask me through private question.

Hi, you can follow basic thumb rules like having small frequent meals, eating 6 small meals in place of 3 major meals. Have a glass of milk or a fruit while going to bed, avoid simple carbohydrates such as bakery items, cold drink, sweets. Have more of protein and good fats such as nuts, roasted grams, etc. Have less oil, ghee, butter on daily basis.
