Dear lybrate-user, diabetes is a lifestyle disease, hence the most important treatment for controlling it is to follow proper dist and lifestyle. Here is the detalis you must keep in mind for controlling blood sugar and its complications: 1. Maintain body weight. 2. Do not fast/ don't have a long break in meals. Instead of having three big meals, start 5-6 frequent but small meals. 3. Do regular light exercise along with meditation (stress is a major factor for uncontrolled blood sugar) 4. Take more sprouts. 5. Instead of pure curd, take diluted curd mixed with cucumber, onion (raayta). 6. Use cow milk and its products. 7. In fruits, you may take papaya, apple, orange, pear, jamun, guava in average quantity. 8. Soybean chunks, dal, and atta is good. 9. Use multi grain atta (wheat+ jau+ bajra). Avoid plain only wheat floor chapatis. 10. Sabudana khichri is good in breakfast. 11. Curd made by methi seeds is good (boil the milk with methi seeds and make curd of this). 12. Take unpolished rice more and take less white rice. 13. Strictly do not take sugar in liquid form, like shikanji, coke, but its not so harmful to take solid sugar like a piece of mithai (just as comparatively not recommended regularly).

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, 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 will depend upon your blood reports.

Mr Rajeev, TSH level of 7.08 milli units/ ml, is above normal. It is better to check for anti TPO anti bodies also. If TPO anti bodies are also high then treatment with thyroxine tablets is needed. Another important thing is that do you have any symptoms suggesting deficiency of thyroxine like unexplained tiredness, weight gain, cold intolerance, slow heart rate, dry skin, hair fall, muscle cramps, swelling of legs, feet and face etc. then treatment is needed.

Worlds most centres have confirmed more than 40 % diabetes patients suffer from heart disease and more than 70% diabetic patients die because of heart disease.
However Preventive Diabetology has proved excellent results in reducing incidence of heart involvement to less than 10% by following approaches ,
1) Preventive approach from day one .
2) Regular advise for life style modification for patients as well as relatives.
3) Regular monitoring and control of sugars and lipid profile and other risk factors ,efforts to increase HDL cholesterol , Reduce Triglyceride/ HDL ratio ,Reduce Waist hip ratio, Reduce BMI less than 23 /21 (MALE/FEMALE)
4) Regular monitoring by ECG once in year, early atherosclerosis scanning by COLIN VASCULAR PROFILER 1000- detecting early heart patients with arterial stiffness ,Ankle brachial index may be yearly –indirectly confirming blockages and documented reversal of disease with timely medicines may not requires interventions ,stress testing /2D echo may be once in three years.
4) Constant involvements of family members during counseling at regular intervals in developing good support system for patients and their relatives resulting in reinforcement.
5) Continuous educations through free lectures, free literature and Audio visuals, videos, online question answer sessions.
6)Role of exercise as changing routine with constant changes in speed ,pace, rhythm of walking, sports activity, musical-dancing exercises, yogic exercises. Accepting exercises as pleasurable activity building energy levels and not as punishments or tiring chores.

I am a diabetic since last year. I am not too fat. I tried ayurvedic medication but nothing worked. Prescribe some medicine for normal daily life.

MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
You need to get your fasting blood glucose and hba1c checked first, along with your lipid profile. There are a lot of anti-diabetic medicines available in the market and choice of medicine varies from person to person. So get your tests done and visit your physician at the earliest. Life lstyle modification has a great role to play too. Avoid all starchy and sweet things, fatty foods to be avoided too. Quit smoking and alchohol. Exercise daily for at least 40 minutes.

The best natural remedy to cure thyroid is coriander leaves, what you have to do you have to take 20 to 30 grams of coriander and boil in 200 ml water after boiling for 7 to 8 minutes you can drink this coriander herbal tea, you have to drink this herbal tea in morning empty stomach regularly for 3 months, along with this start doing kapal bharti and alom vilom regularly without any fail, make a habit of walking 60 minutes in a day, you have to avoid refined oil in your cooking and use mustard oil cow ghee or any other pure oil, drink 3 to 4 litres water everyday but make sure your not drinking water right after your meals give a gap of 90 minutes.

Mr. lybrate-user, Warm water, lemon with honey is recommended by some as a treatment for reducing weight. As a doctor I am not able to explain how or why it works. Honey is same as either sugar or jaggery, containing sucrose, plus it is having some vitamins and antioxidants. Can be used as a substitute to sugar. Thanks.

Hi, I am a registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator and a doctor (general physician) who will help you in your diabetes problem. Do let me know your hba1c value? also you need to provide me your daily food intake details. There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed: take high fiber prescribed diet which includes soluble fibre like apple, isabgol etc. Get more physical activity by prescription from a registered dietitian eat a balanced diet which includes whole grains and excludes all refined products like maida as prescribed by a registered dietitian, if you're overweight, diabetes prevention may hinge on weight loss. Every pound you lose can improve your health, and you may be surprised by how much. Participants in one large study who lost a modest amount of weight around 7 percent of initial body weight and exercised regularly reduced the risk of developing diabetes by almost 60 percent. I being a registered dietitian and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their diabetes problem. I will also prescribe medicines that will speed up the time to achieve your weight management goals. Do reply back for private consultation.
