Lybrate-user, if diabetes is not well controlled it leads to first microalbuminuria and later albumin uria (protein uria). Hence primary need is to get blood sugar in excellent control. Then only there is a possibility to reduce protein uria. Plus proper diet control and if she has high blood pressure, that also needs to be controlled effectively. Thanks.

Hello, before considering a proper diet, it is essential to start appropriate drug treatment particularly for diabetes mellitus and bring blood sugar level under control. Good conrol means having fasting around 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<7. Along with this diet and exercise are also equally important. A person with diabetes should - avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and high fat milk products. Similarly to control uric acid - avoid fish like sardines, salmon, scallops, trout, herring, mushrooms, mussels, organ meat, meat in general, sweetened aerated drinks, high fat cheese and alcohol. Can take milk products with low fat, skinned chicken green leafy vegetables, fruits etc. To control blood sugar diet should be providing exact calories based on ideal body weight, blood sugar levels and extent of daily exercise. For acidity to be reduced frequent small meals are necessary so in diabetes. Refrain frrom spicy foods and too much of tea and coffee.

Diabetic ketoacidosis is a serious complication of diabetes that occurs when your body produces high levels of blood acids called ketones. Lactic acidosis: Acidosis (too much acid in the body) due to the buildup of lactic acid in the body. Lactic acidosis occurs when cells make lactic acid (from glucose) faster than it can be metabolized. The key signs of lactic acidosis include unusually deep and rapid breathing, vomiting, and abdominal pain.

1. Maintain your 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. 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 quantiy. 8. Soyabean chunks, dal, and atta is good. 9. Sabudana khichri is good in breakfast. 10. Curd made by methi seeds is good (boil the milk with methi seeds and make curd of this).

For a diabetic person balanced diet has to be given, based on weight and physical activity. Since he is paralised his diet has to be restricted about 1200 to 1400 kcal/d. He should consume more green salads, fruits like papaya, apple, orange, guava, pear etc. No red meat, fish and chicken with less masala can be taken. Curds and butter milk and milk are good.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus, is a disease occurring due to either lack of insulin or resistance to its action or both. Plus over weight, inactivity and junk foods. This disease can only be controlled by taking regular medicine as prescribed by the doctor, plus dietary control and regular exercise for about an hour, so that normal weight is maintained. As regards the drug mentioned, is an ayurvedic (herbal) combination. Supposed to be helping in controlling diabetes. If you want you may take it. But do not stop your current treatment, otherwise blood sugar control will become haywire. I do not recommend it as a primary treatment of diabetes. World over there is no treatment that can cure diabetes. Thanks for the question.
