Dear lybrate-user, best wishes for the holy month of ramadan! you are very young and your diabetes should not be a problem for observing fast, in ramadan this year days are very long and hence dose of medicines need to be adjusted so well that you should not experience low sugar. Please visit nearby diabetologist to adjust the medicine dosages. Hope this helps you! regards,

What should I eat as a good diet as I have suffered from high blood pressure and diabetes?

What should I eat as a good diet as I have suffered from high blood pressure and diabetes?
Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. Take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnemna sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Also you need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. Also you need to take a low carbohydrate rich diet. Avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

it may be due to hormonal imbalance,quickly eating a meal on the run:-when you eat quickly, the hormone your stomach sends to let your body know that you’re full doesn’t have time to trigger, preventing you from ever feeling full. Sleep Deprivation:- when your body hasn’t had adequate rest, it becomes more difficult to produce the hormone leptin, which is responsible for allowing your body to feel full. Sleep deprivation also leads to an increase in the production of the hunger inducing hormone ghrelin. due to peer pressure,due to skipping breakfast,due to chew gum,dehydration,taking soda,eating processed foods and due to stress too.so,first take proper diet,don't skip meal,avoid stress,

Hi drink some bitter gourd juice on an empty stomach each morning. First remove the seeds of two to three bitter gourds and use a juicer to extract the juice. Add some water and then drink it. Follow this treatment daily in the morning for at least two months. Take pranacharya diabeto and shilajeet capsule twice a day with water. Take vasant kusumakar ras twice a day. Avoid sweets. Take small meals in less time interval. Do pranayama early morning.

Hello doctor my father was suffering sugar problem last two years what should I do his age 53.
Mr. Lybrate-user, I am sure he is already on appropriate treatment, that should be continued. Strive to maintain fasting sugar closer to 100 mg and pp between 150 to 160 mg/100ml.& hba1c%<7. These levels will help in preventing or delaying long term complications of diabetes mellitus. Otherwise, consequences can be fairly bad. Apart from regular medication he should also take a restricted but balanced diet, that gives exact calories matching needs based on ideal body weight, sugar levels and extent of daily physical activity. Daily exercise of 1 hour plus is a must. He should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Should also refrain from alcohol, sweetened aerated drinks and smoking. Also avoid ghee, butter and high fat milk products like cheese.

I am 29 years old. Today morning I checked my sugar just after waking up and my blood sugar showed 375! I am shocked. I am little over weight and currently from the past few months I am going through office tensions and work. I do not have the urination problem but I am getting irritated in a short while. I am also getting a slight pain near to my liver. The last time I checked was 2 months ago and it was 140. Yesterday I had an unusual diet for dinner at a party which included white rice and other junk food. Please advice. I am not find of sweets and avoid all sorts of chocolates and sugar. The only source of sugar is tea which I consume twice a day. My diet basically includes margarine and white bread for breakfast, 4 chapatis for lunch and generally 3 chapatis for dinner or sometimes white rice. In the evening I tend to have 4 slices of bread with amul lite. Please help. Is it because of the stress and the bad dinner last night or is my sugar gone for a toss. Or, should I test again in a couple of days?

Hello, It is essential for you to start antidiabetes treatment with appropriate drugs rightaway. Otherwise the condition can become worse and may lead to some of the long term complications of diabetes. Hence, please initiate immediate treatment. Plus follow a healthy diet and regular exercise schedule. Ideal body weight should be (height in Cms - 100 + IBW). All your intake should be based on IBW and extent of daily physical activity. All the best.
