Lybrate-user, diabetes is a lifestyle disorder where balancing your diet along with good physical activity is a must. Eat at regular intervals of 2-3 hrs and practise 15-20 mins of yoga to reduce stress.

In diabetes portion size of food matters. Normal person eats around 3-4 times day, diabetic person should eat atleast 6 times per day but small meals at a time. Long fasting causes high glycemic variation in blood sugar levels which is bad for diabetic person. He should carry some fruits like apple or oranges which he can have in free time in office.

Mr. Lybrate-user, looking at the details provided, it is possible to reduce your hba1c% <7, by just increasing your daily exercise by a few minutes and also by adujusting daily intake marginally. There is no need to add any additional drug. You are really maintaining blood sugar levels quite well. Keep it up. With regards.

Check out on the internet for a low glycemic index diet. Glycemic index is speed at which the sugar rises in blood after taking a food item in comparison to plain sugar. High glycemic index foods like corn flakes are to avoided in diabetics. For diabetics and the people who want to loose weight - breakfast is the most important and most abundant meal of the day. Dinner is the lightest and most sparse meal.

First of all diabetes when is long duration than you will have nerve damage. So you can not blame medicine for that. Make sure that your diabetes is under control or else damage can be worse.

Dear Lybrate User, Protein is one of the most vital nutritional substances which are required for human body. Almost every high protein diet contains purine. This purine produces uric acid on oxidation. Excess uric acid is accumulated at the joints of human beings as urate salts. This accumulation of urate salts lead to pain & swelling of those affected joints & this condition is clinically known as gout. You should avoid high protein rich diet like mutton, chicken, beef, eggs, sea fish, spinach, garden pea, tomato, lentils etc. Also you need to take Homoeopathic Mother Tincture URTICA URENS Q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to dissolve the accumulated excess urate salts from the joints.
