Fasting blood sugar - 129 and PPBS - 179, is it diabetes if so what is the diet plan to control.

Homeopath,
Fasting blood sugar - 129 and PPBS - 179, is it diabetes if so what is the diet plan to control.
Dear Lybrate User, One of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as DIABETES MELLITUS. Once a patient is diagnosed with Diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. However, the patient does not need to take medicine unless his/her Post. Prandial Blood Sugar level reaches 200. If Post. Prandial Blood Sugar level reaches 200 then patient should take the following Homoeopathic medications:- 1) Homeopathic URANIUM NIT 3X TABLETS (R.S. BHARGAVA company). Take one tablet thrice daily, in empty stomach 2) 30 drops of Homeopathic Mother Tincture GYMNEMA SYLVESTRA Q, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water Along with intake of medicines the patient need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. In order to decrease the intake of carbohydrate in diet the patient should avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

lybrate-user, thanks for the query. It is very nice to see you are concerned about your grandpa's health. A patient of diabetes first and foremost needs a strict blood glucose control, that is following blood glucose should be maintained: Fasting < 100 mg, PP 160 to 180 mg & HbA1c%<7. If this achieved, then good balanced diet will help in maintaining normal health. Some times there may be a need for certain vitamins and/or iron supplements if those are deficient. It is also necessary to check his kidney function test, particularly creatinine and urea, because diabetes dose affect kidney function. If you have any other doubts please come back. But please ensure that his blood glucose levels are well controlled. Thanks.

Having a first degree relative with diabetes does indeed increase your chances of developing the same. But you can avoid it by following a healthy lifestyle. Eat and sleep on time avoid heavy meals at one time with long periods of fasting between 2 meals avoid/minimise fast food/oily food/ bakery products exercise regularly or atleast try to be more active. Eg walk instead of travelling by vehicle for short distances, use the stairs instead of lift drink more water eat more of fresh fruits and vegetables quit smoking in case you do.

1. Olive oil is not a panacea (cure) for Diabetes. 2. 5-6 Tablespoons of oil will add 600-720 (120 cals per tbsp) additional calories to your intake every day. 3. That can lead to added 2-3 KGS on your body every month. 4. Additional weight will lead to increased level of sugar. 5. To manage Diabetes you need to reduce extra calories coming from carbs and oils.

lybrate-user, eight reduction and tiredness can occur in diabetes if blood glucose is not under control. You have not mentioned her current fasting, PP glucose levels and HbA1c%, so there is no way to know how good the control is. Weight loss also does occur in hyperthyroidism along with other symptoms like tiredness, irritability, difficulty in sleeping, increased heart rate & palpitations, loss of appetite or increase in appetite, light menstrual periods, mental disturbance, muscle weakness, nervousness, shortness of breath etc. So pleas come back with present blood glucose levels & HbA1c%, that will help in giving suggestions. Thanks.

Diabetes can be healed with proper diet n if one follows it seriously can even low the disease amount of your tablet. Having sweets is not at all good for your health. Sugars are already naturally present in d carbs you consume. Hence to get rid of your habit of consuming sweets, initially limit your quantities n slowly stop at all. Artificial sugars to be avoided completely. Include lot of fibre before every meal to keep your sugar levels in balance. Flaxseeds, cinnamon tea etc r known to cure diabetes. For a detailed menu plan for diabetes, revert back.

Mr. Lybrate-user, to have a successful pregnancy hypothyroidism has to be under complete control, meaning tsh levels should come down to below 2 milli units / ml. The guidelines say that for conception to occur tsh shouldbe between 0.3 to 2.5 milli units and through out pregnancy also the levels have to be maintained this range for proper fetal development and successful out come of the pregnancy. High tsh levels conception will not take place, fetal development is severely affected, premature birth may take place or miscarriage may occur. Therefor you have to first get the tsh level down to <2 milli units.

Tsh value of 6.3 m units/ml is high, signifies that the person has hypothyroidism. This means immediate treatment should be initiated with thyroxine tablets. Dosage has to be based on patients weight and tsh level. Regular dosing as would be advised by the doctor and regular exercising for more than 1 h and avoiding soya beans, soya containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard and coffee, and consuming more fruits and green vegetables, using whole grain flour for making rotis and consuming onions, garlic these are other precautions to be taken.
