Hi lybrate-user, Try to keep to a regular timing for going to bed. Avoid fried and heavy foods. Eat early and light food at night so that the food is almost digested by the time you go to bed. Prefer fruits and green vegetables. Fix daily work schedule and be busy with your work. Don’t keep pending problems in mind. Note down the points and leave them for next day’s action. Don’t do stimulating mental work or keep watching TV which can keep your mind agitated or active. This will not allow you to sleep. LCD screen will also have adverse effect. Day’s physical exercise makes you tired and induces sleep. A warm bath in the evening will also be helpful. Low volume music also induces sleep. Keep your bed room neat, dark and cool. You may cover your eyes with bed sheet. Drink plenty of water during the day rather than toward bedtime. Don’t have stimulating drinks like tea or coffee. Drinking a glass of milk before going to bed is fine. Do check your FBS and PPBS once and revert back to me with reports. As increase in sugar levels also causes sleeplessness. If you get back with reports. I'll give you a permanent solution. Take care.

Can honey b taken by the blood sugar patient whose blood sugar often remains neat 150 mg?

Can honey b taken by the blood sugar patient whose blood sugar often remains neat 150 mg?
Mr. Lybrate-user singh, please explain the level mentioned 150 mg is it fasting sugar or pp or random. What is the hba1c%? because honey is another form of sugar, as it contains 50% fructose and 50 % glucose, like sucrose (sugar). Like sugar it also increases blood glucose level and fairly rapidly. A little bit of honey may be taken if blood sugar is in full control, with fasting around 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg, hba1c% <7. Thanks.

You need to continue your bp medication. Its good that your blood sugars are controlled without medication but you need to be on diet control and exercise. Regarding fruits you need to avoid mango, litchi, grapes, banana and chickoo.

Both white sugar and jaggery are derived from the same source – sugar cane. Sugar crystals have no natural nutrients while jaggery has essential nutrients like magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, iron, copper and zinc. Jaggery contains the same amount of sugar. Both white sugar and jaggery have a high glycemic index. The absorption of sugar in the body takes place at a faster pace and thus raises blood sugar levels faster whereas Jaggery has sucrose which is a complex sugar and takes time to break down when consumed, but sugar levels go up within a few hours. So its not advised to take jaggery for diabetics. Sugar in all forms should be restricted.

Mr. Lybrate-user, phytolecca berry is claimed to be useful in weight reduction. But clinical evidence is hardly there. There are no specific clinical trials showing the beneficial effect. So if one wants to try it is left on the belief that this medicine works.

Mr. Lybrate-user, it is very incorrect to have stopped treatment on your own. Now if you want to restart the same, then it is essential to have detailed diabetes profile done, like fasting, pp and hba1c%, based on those details drug selection and dosage can be decided. Plus you are having grade 1 obesity with a bmi of 34.6 kgs, that it self is a major contributor for high blood sugar. Please get your bp and lipid profile also checked. Thanks.

Dear hyder, hypothyroidism is of many types. Autoimmune hypothyroidism requires permanent replacement but to prove we've to check for thyroid antibodies. At times the condition if mild and drug induced itcan reverse. But keep checking tsh regularly to diagnose recurrence.

Since you are over weight by almost 20 kg first aim is to reduce weight by reducing food intake and increase physical activity. Reduce diet by 20% overall do not take sweets and oil otherwise indian standard diet is as good as diabetics diet andno major changes are required. The diet charts are difficult to follow. Write your daily routine diet and reduce by 20%
