Is chana dal helpful for diabetics? should it be eaten raw or boiled to get maximum benefit?
chana dal is as good as any other dal. It has good quantity of proteins, so is quite good. It can be eaten raw after soaking in water or as a curry. There is no special benefit for diabetic except that it does not increase glucose level too much.

How to prevent and decrease acids in stomach? And How to prevent Acidic nature in blood for diabetics?

BHOM, MD - Alternate Medicine, Diploma in Weight Loss, Diploma in Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Delhi
How to prevent and decrease acids in stomach? And How to prevent Acidic nature in blood for diabetics?
Our stomach itself produces HCl which helps in digestion and breaking of food. But when too much of acid is produced then it creates problems. Acid increases due to acidic foods, alcohol, dehydration, stress. You can have cold milk, buttermilk, coconut water or some herbs such as ajwain, jeera, tulsi or pudina. You can have antacid tablets, milk of magnesia, eno. Severe acidity may lead to ulcers also. To decrease acid drink a glass of water first thing in the morning. Eat lots of non-citrus fruits such as apple, banana, water melon and fresh vegetables such as beans, legumes. Include yogurt in your diet. Avoid spicy and oily foods.

Lybrate-user, before getting pregnant earlier were you asked to get thyroid test and blood glucose (ogtt) test done? these are mandatory now. Because quite a few women are developing hypothyroidism, which does affect conception, if conceived then fetal development and if not in control then pregnancy outcome can be bad, as experienced by you. Similarly gestational diabetes (diabetes developing during pregnancy) is seen in about 20% females. Now if you want to have a baby, please get both the tests done. Since you are already on thyroxine treatment, the test is needed to see what is the tsh level. It is recommended that even before conceiving tsh should be maintained around 2 mu/l and during pregnancy - 1st trimester 0.1 to 2 mu/l, 2nd trimester 0.3 to 3 mu/l & 3rd trimester 0.3 to 3.1 mu/l. If these levels are not achieved, then as mentioned earlier there can be problems with conception and fetal development. Similarly gestational diabetes is also a problematic condition. So get that test too done. Once your tsh is maintained as mentioned, then there will be no problem if you have any doubt, please do come back. Thanks.

Hello, even if you have diabetes, it is possible to join a gym and build muscles. Based on your sugar level, weight and extent of exercise your diet should be based. But first thing is to achieve a strict blood sugar control with fasting closer to 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% < 6.8. Then you will have to take extra proteins to build muscles.

Everything we eat will convert into sugars, protein and fats by body. Sugars breakdown inside the body and produce energy for which insulin is necessary. Whenever the pancreas stops producing insulin. Sugar levels tend to raise in the blood and alters several body metabolism and prone to infection. This condition is known as diabetes. There is no cure for diabetes yet. Strict diet, physical activity and medication will improve the quality of life and prolong life time. Check his sugar levels regularly both fasting and 2 hours after breakfast. Take anti diabetic medication prescribed by a physician regularly. Contact if need further assistance.

Dear friend your mothers blood sugar levels appears normal. Blood sugar fasting should be 100 and 2 hrs after meals should be 140. She is already diagnosed as diabetic and on medicine so the credit of sugar control goes to medicine and your doctor. The best person to decide whether to continue or discontinue the drug is your treating doctor only. Please consult him.

Is ayurvedic treatment better for diabetes or allopathy? Can diabetes be cured or it needs a regular tab once detected?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take.

You seem to be having Diabetic Neuropathy. While Loratidine will help in the allergic rashes, it doesn't have any role in treating Diabetic Neuropathy. Consult a Diabetologist immediately and get your feet thoroughly evaluated.

This means that the blood sugar levels continue to be high, threatening the normal functioning of the body.

Avoid sugar, honey, jaggery, deep fried items, sweets and confectionery. Plenty of fresh vegetables, salads, pulses & legumes, fresh fruits, dried fruits & nuts are all very helpful. Daily brisk walking for 45 minutes is very helpful.

Dear Sir, Both your TSH and HBA1C are in Normal range, though you are very near borderline for Pre-diabetes (HbA1C between 5.7 % to 6.4% is prediabetes). I am not sure why you have been started on Thyronorm either. Was you TSH greater than 5 before? You can stop the Glycomet, but you need to decrease weight. Your BMI which is ration of weight/height square is 27.1. Your ideal BMI should be around 23. So you need to lose approximately 19 kgs. F you stop Glycomet and you do not lose weight within a couple of years you may well be in PreDiabetic range or with Overt diabetes. So my advise is stop Glycomet, eat a healthy balanced diet with plenty of vegetables/ both in salad form or a Sabji which is cooked in less oil. At least half your plate should be of vegetables. 1/4 plate should be of carbohydrate- like rice/roti/chapati/phulka etc. Include plenty of whole grain foods like millets etc. 80% of remaining 1/4 plate should be of protein-pulses-dals, eggs, non veg etc. 20% should be fats/oil. Eat 2 fruits /day. Drink semi skimmed milk 1glass/day. Take curd/buttermilk from semi skimmed milk. Can take one handful of nuts/day. Avoid high calorie food like sweets or junk food. Most important is to exercise -at least 45 min of moderate exercise per day- like cycling, brisk walking, jogging, swimming etc. Aim to lose 2 kgs weight per month. Hope this has helped you. I wish you best of luck Thank you.

After a uterus & ovaries have been removed, patient will need hormone replacement therapy. The exact dose, a gynaecologist will be able to tell. Any way diabetes must be well controlled.

Mr. Lybrate-user, by and large sildenafil has been found to be fairly safe even on long term use. A number clinical trials have shown it to be effective in producing erection even after use of over a number of years and safe enough. However, occasionally some side effects are observed with regard to vision, hearing, cardiovascular and bleeding episodes. Usage has to be done when absolutely needed. Thanks.
