10 Home Remedies to Control Diabetes

Diabetes is basically caused due to the lack of production of insulin or improper use of the produced insulin, which eventually leads to a deficiency in the blood glucose level. Diabetes is of two types, one where the insulin production is insufficient therefore the glucose level cannot be balanced; two when the body cannot produce insulin at all and therefore patients must inject insulin to maintain close levels. Apart from synthetic drugs, you can use various home remedies to cure or at least improve your diabetic condition. Here are some great home remedies to effectively maintain your blood sugar level:

bitter gourd have juice extracted from bitter gourd every morning on an empty stomach. Having this everyday for a few months will help maintain blood sugar levels.

guava: have guava every day after peeling the skin off. It contains vitamin c and fiber which help maintain the standard blood glucose level. Excessive guava eating is not recommended.

mango leaves- soak fresh mango leaves in water (say a one litre bottle) over night and consume first thing in the morning. You could even let them dry out, powder the leaves and have half a teaspoon everyday.

basil leaves- have 2 tablespoons of juice extracted from basil leaves empty stomach, in the morning. These are loaded with antioxidants that relieve stress and also contain oils that help lower blood sugar levels.

jamun- jamun's leaves, seeds and berries are effective in improving blood sugar levels and they also prevent spikes in the level of insulin. You could eat a handful of the berries or powder the leaves and seeds- which you should consume twice a day.

amla- combine 2 teaspoons of amla juice in water and have it as soon as you wake up. Make this a part of your everyday routine to maintain blood sugar levels.

flaxseeds- eat one tablespoon of flaxseed powder with a glass of warm water every morning, on an empty stomach. Flax seed can bring down your sugar level by almost 28%. But be careful not to have more than 2 tablespoons per day, as that could be bad for health.

neem- neem enhances insulin receptor sensitivity, improves circulation and lowers blood sugar levels thereby reducing your dependency on synthetic drugs. Drink the juice of the need shoot everyday on an empty stomach for best results.

Fruits- fruits are rich in fiber and other minerals which help stabilize blood sugar levels of the body. Consume at least 5 fruits a day! choose fruits like banana's, blackberries, cranberries, grape fruit, blueberries, kiwi and other citrus fruits.

Apple cider vinegar- mix 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in a class water and consume before every large meal. The nutritional components in apple cider will help control the rise in blood sugar levels after eating.

The key to producing more milk is more suckling. The more your baby suckles, the more milk your breasts produce. But since one cannot force feed a baby, it is a good idea to use a breast pump for providing more stimulation to breasts.

Hi - I have 35 days old baby. Please suggest me some tips to make breast feeding easier. How often we can feed? Ideas on foods to eat and avoid during tis time ?

MD-Ayurveda, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Sexologist, Haldwani
Hello- drink more milk to increase the quantity of breast milk. Don't start any medicines as it will transfer from you to your baby. Feeding frequency depends upon the hunger of the baby so it can not be fixed. Don't feed in supine position (sleeping position) as it may cause perforation of the ear internally. (also known as milk ear). Avoid spicy food, fast foods, and hard to digest foods during this period.

The baby not getting enough milk is a frequent, unnecesaary worry among the young parents. First of all it almost never true. Weighing the baby before and after the feed on an accurate electronic scale can give an idea of how much milk the baby suckled. Second test is to manually express the breast and see. If the nipples are not inverted, the baby can be encouraged to suckle frequently so that feeding gets established. If the nipples are inverted then, a nipple shield can be used. Correct positioning and latching of the baby is of utmost importance. A trained person can help with this. There are some drugs such as perinorm which can be given to the mother as a galactagouge. The mother's fluid/foodintake should be increased and she should be constantly motivated, supported and assisted till the feeding gets established.

Maintain hb more that 9 gm% by regular transfusions, avoid iron overload by giving iron chelators deferrasirox / others as prescribed by your doctor to keep ferritin < 1000, get his blood checked every six months for transfusion related infections and iron overload, maintain a near normal life, try an option for bone marrow transplant.
