My sugar level is very high I want to control but. This is sugar addict what I do.

BHMS
Homeopath,
My sugar level is very high I want to control but. This is sugar addict what I do.
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. Take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnemna sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Also you need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. Also you need to take a low carbohydrate rich diet. Avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

I am a diabetic patient having fasting sugar 300. What foods to be avoided and my daily diet measures.

I am a diabetic patient having fasting sugar 300. What foods to be avoided and my daily diet measures.
Dear lybrate-user, you are suffering diabetes with heavy amount of sugar. You avoid rice, sugar, jagger, ghee, oil, spices etc. Although there are insufficient data at present to warrant any specific recommendations for the prevention of type 2 diabetes in youth, interventions similar to those shown to be effective for prevention of type 2 diabetes in adults (lifestyle changes including reduced energy intake and regular physical activity) are likely to be beneficial. So change in life style is basic need for you.

Dear Lybrateuser, - To reduce your weight you have to have more of fibrous foods like fruits & vegetables, beans, legumes, whole grains, peas, nuts, seeds - to reduce triglycerides have more of fibrous foods, do regular exercise, reduce weight, avoid alcohol & smoking, reduce carbohydrates in diet - avoid fried, processed, junk food, chew your food well, do not skip meals, have meals on time, have 4-5 small meals rather than three large meals, have dinner 2-3 hrs before bedtime - reduce nonveg take one portion a day as it has more of saturated fats which will increase cholesterol & triglyceride levels - do regular exercises like walking, jogging, swimming, cycling for 30-40 min, do moderate weight lifting at least twice a week, also do yoga for 10-15 min every morning, it will help reduce weight. -

Hi -happy to help you. I can say that diabetes is biggest problem in india. So not merely sexual capacity but we should think all disorders & prventions. You can go for a 1200- 1400 kcal/day diet plan. No sugar, take gourds more, briown rice, citrus fruits etc. Curd (sour), skim milk, low rice but more whole grains/multi grains, low fried foods, no out side junk, best all home made foods, no stress, yoga/ exercises help more.

Lybrate-user, if a person has confirmed diabetes and is on treatment, then stopping the treatment is not advisable. The sugar level mentioned (130 to 150 mg) is which one? fasting or pp? because once drug treatment is stopped blood sugar can increase disproportionately. Get his hba1c% checked, it has to aoround 6 to be free from diabetes. (5.9 to 6.4 % is prediabetes, >6.5 % is diabetes). As regards affection of sexual life, yes it can get affected if blood sugar levels are not strictly controlled with appropriate treatment. It is better if consults a proper diabetologist. Thanks.

Inability to gain may be due to many reasons like uncontrolled diabetes, associated thyroid disease or celiac disease or it may be unrelated to diabetes. You need evaluation and then treatment accordingly.

I have thyroid. Taking eltroxin 100 mg everyday Is it safe? what are the side effects of the pills I take.? Last TSH was around 7. 2 months ago Can it be reduced to normal again? what are the ways to reduce Thyroid? Any other precaution / suggestions?

BAMS

Thyroid level can be reduced and keep in limit by some medicines and diet. Before that you must undergo prakriti parikshan by any ayurvedic doctor to know more about your body and appropriate shodana karma of body. Thyroid can be treated with ayurvedic medicines or can be controlled with higher bodily functions without much medicines. Until then take tab. Raktpachak vati 2 tabs twice a day tab. Arogyavardhini vati 2tabs twice a day.

If only metformin is taken it should be after food. If sustained release tablet is there then od may ok. If not twice a day is better. Side effects are less if taken after food.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in salt, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise. Medicine will depend upon your blood reports.
