Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, if you do not have diabetes then normal balanced diet like everyone else is fine for maintaining normal glucose and lipid levels. Precautions to be taken are: avoid too much of sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), fructose corn syrup containing products and highly processed food products. Refrain from alcohol and smoking. Exercise regularly for over 1 hour a day. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads. These measures help in maintaining lipids and blood glucose at desired level. Thanks.

Hello , pls follow the doctor prescribed medicine. Which controls the diabetics and will not allow you increase. But along with medication, you need to concentrate on food also. Make sure you food must have high protein, fiber and omega-3 nutrition. For a diabetics, its good to have more protein rather than carbohydrates, which converts into glucose and may have a chance to increase the diabetes. What we suggest is the nutrigemoic protein, who certified, with 9 essential amino acids. This will help you cure your diabetics in a year time. But you will definitely have a result, if you can use protein with vitamins and minerals, fiber and omega-3 supplements, lets discuss more about health and how to control with the diet. Have a nice day.

According to these report, there is no problem with the endometrium and egg. But you need to find out whether tubes are open or not, for that get an HSG test done , if not done earlier. Also semen analysis of husband done.

Is rice the cause for diabetes? Anyone please tell me can I take rice daily? Thanks.

MD - Physicion
General Physician, Delhi
White rice being a high glycemic index food increases blood sugar rapidly, may create problem maintaining normal blood sugar. Not recommended for diabetic person ideally. Try eating food with low glycemic index below 50-60, small n frequent meals. U can search in net for low gi index food.
