If you have been diagnosed of having diabetes, then proper treatment has to be initiated with either oral antidiabetes drugs or insulin depending on sugar levels. In addition a changed life style has to be adapted like - regular exercise every day for more than 1 h, avoiding sweets, direct sugar, deep fried foods, fruits like mango, chikoo, grapes and bananas and also avoid smoking & alcohol. Plus maintain weight near normal (ideal body weight = height in cms - 100 x 0.9 = ibw kg). Waist line should be 85 cms.

I am 60 years old suffering from Diabetic retinopathy. Is this curable by ayurvedic treatment?
Me lybrate-user, Diabetic retinopathy can only be controlled. There's no cure. It is absolutely essential to achieve strict blood glucose control so that it doesn't get bad. Plus depending upon whether it is Non proliferative or proliferative the retinal specialist will decide on right treatment. So please consult a very competent retinal specialist. Ayurveda has no treatment for this. Please do not listen to any such advise. I wish you early recovery. Thanks.

If you want any further info please come back with all the details.

Could you please advice me if it is possible to drop medication and yet live a normal life. I am not married and I do not want to get married either because of my mental illness.

What is the best medicine for diabetes for 15 years child. Present he is using insulin 30/70.
Diabetes is a vast subject and normally one diabetic differs from another. The best thing about diabetes is unlike other ailments this if taken care off can be controlled effectively. Diabetes is a problem which requires lot of self-control. Certain foods and lifestyle changes can show long term results on your health. Depending on the type of diabetes you have, your food habits, age and body type your treatment, insulin counts and monitoring should be scheduled. I can help you with carbohydrate counting to correct insulin techniques and monitoring your sugar levels whatever the need be. Diabetics require personalized care when it's about the diet-plans and activities that are needed to be done. A professional advice in this regard is a must in order to manage diabetes effectively. I hold expertise with diabetics as I am a certified diabetes educator apart from being a consultant dietitian. You can consult me privately online for any advice related to diabetes.

Diet Food For Diabetes

PGP In Diabetologist, Fellowship in non-invasive Cardiology, MD - Medicine, MBBS

Diet Food For Diabetes

Diabetes control is governed by following the right diabetic diet. What to eat and what not to eat is important for diabetes control, cure or diabetes reversal.

These are the top diabetes diet tips from diabetologists and nutritionists. Even if you are pre-diabetic or borderline diabetic, or diabetes is part of your family, it is important to follow a diabetic diet to prevent diabetes.

Here is the Diet Food for Diabetics:

  1. Whole grains, oats, channa atta, millets and other high fibre foods should be included in the meals. If one feels like consuming pasta or noodles, it should always be accompanied with vegetable/sprouts.
  2. Milk is the right combination of carbohydrates and proteins and helps control blood sugar levels. Two servings of milk in a daily diet is a good option.
  3. High fibre vegetables such as peas, beans, broccoli and spinach /leafy vegetables should be included in one's diet. Also, pulses with husk and sprouts are a healthy option and should be part of the diet.
  4. Pulses are important in the diet as their effect on blood glucose is less than that of most other carbohydrate containing foods. Vegetables rich in fibre help lowering down the blood sugar levels and thus are healthy.
  5. Good fats such as Omega-3 and monounsaturated fats (MUFA) should be consumed as they are good for the body. Natural sources for these are canola oil, flax seed oil, fatty fish and nuts. These are also low in cholesterol and are trans fat free.
  6. Fruits high in fibre such as papaya, apple, orange, pear and guava should be consumed. Mangoes, bananas, and grapes contain high sugar; therefore these fruits should be consumed lesser than the others.

Small frequent meals:

A large meal gives rise to higher blood sugar in one's body, therefore it is essential to take small frequent meals to prevent both higher and very low blood sugar values and keep them constant. Small in between snacks can be dhokla, fruit, high fibre cookies, butter milk, yogurt, upma/poha with vegetables etc.

A person with diabetes should follow a diet which is low in carbohydrates, high in fibre and contains adequate amounts of proteins, vitamins and minerals; and avoid fatty foods and sweets. He/she should also take frequent small meals (5 meals pattern).

What not to do:

  • Artificial sweeteners can be used in cakes and sweets for diabetic people (in moderation).
  • Have lots of fluid.
  • Limit intake of alcohol.

Should you have non-veg?

In non-vegetarian diet, seafood and chicken can be taken rather than red meat as red meat contains higher amount of saturated fats. Also, patients with high cholesterol should avoid egg yolk and red meat.

The diabetes diet for Indians includes carbohydrates, proteins and fats. As always, a balanced and planned diet can build and improve personal health. A controlled diabetes diet may seem like a drag and bore, but a good cook can add life to a diet.

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. 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. 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. Your brother can take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnemna sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Also he needs to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. Also he needs to take a low carbohydrate rich diet & avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

You cannot achieve much in one month with home remedies alone. Be determined and start step by step. First if all clean gut by herbals, start eating light/ high roughage diet/ low carbs. Maintain negative calory intake balance. Get'medohar' (fat shedder) herbs. Use with hot water twice a day by adding honey, asafoetida and rock salt to scrap the waste material out of intestines and also reduce fat by metabolic action. I caution you not to fall prey to hormonal weight shedders to get dlim early. It would be dangerous. You can do it peacefully as health improver with some pranayam and walks etc.

Don't get me wrong — exercising at any time is good for you. But evening activity may be particularly beneficial because many people's metabolism slows down toward the end of the day. Thirty minutes of aerobic activity before dinner increases your metabolic rate and may keep it elevated for another two or three hours, even after you've stopped moving. What that means for you: Those dinner calories have less of a chance to take up permanent residence on your hips.
