What is the most beneficial diet for a diabetes patient? What kind of food a diabetes patient should eat?

M.sc dietitics and food service management, Diabetes educator
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Bhopal
Diet high in protein (20% of kcals) for the health of diabetics because it supplies the essential amino acids needed for tissue repair. Pulsese are rich in protein and fibre. Take lukewarm water with half spoon methidana powder in the morning. Complex carbohydrates and fibre should be included in diet. You should avoid fasting and feasting. Junk food should be avoided. Timely and balanced diet is as important as regular medicine intake to control diabetes. Use sufficient amount of ginger, onion, garlic, coriander, lemon, greenchilli, black paper, fenugreek seeds, cinnamon, bay leaves in food items. Except fruit juice you should eat complete fruit because it contain fibers which is good for a diabetes patient.

I am 48y old and I want to ask that my sugar level fasting is around 120-125 and PP is around 160-170 you please suggest me how I go forward take medicine/exercise/ diet controlThanks Sir.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, the levels mentioned are above normal. Normal fbs should be 70 - 110 mg, pp <140 mg). Levels above this are in the category of referred as impaired glucose tolerance (igt) or pre diabetic state. This signifies that you are likely to develop t2 diabetes in the near future. You can prevent developing it by: 1) regular exercise for more than 1 h a day, so that weight is maintained as near as possible to normal. Your ideal body weight should be 60 kg, present bmi is 28.857 kg/m2 (normal <23 kg/ m2). 2) restricted diet giving exact amount of calories based on ibw and level of daily physical activity, 3) consuming more of green leafy vegetables and salads, and fruits, 4) avoiding smoking and alcohol completely. If this modified life style is followed then there is a possibility of remaining free from diabetes.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Lybrate-user, with bilirubin 1.7 mg/dl, there is presence of jaundice. It is not such a serious condition. He should continue taking normal food. Since he is also has diabetes, the precautions being taken in diabetes are good enough. He should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items, items made out of maida, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), sweet corn syrup containing products, highly processed food products, red meat, high fat containing milk products. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits. Refrain totally from alcohol and smoking. Total diet should provide exact calories needed on the basis of his ideal body weight, exercise done daily and blood sugar levels. Thanks.

I am 37 years old female I am overweight and diagnosed with diabetes which is in control I do regular exercise but last 3 to 4 days I am getting burps and nausea and feeling cold when it is hot outside. Is it due to gas or any other problem. please refer me a medicine for this cold.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, Looking at your weight and height it shows grade 1 obesity with a BMI of 34.16 kgs/M2. Which means you are carrying 28 kgs extra weight. This itself can be the cause of burps and nausea. Also get a thyroid assay done, because if TSH is high, then it can cause weight gain plus can also cause feeling cold. Weight reduction will help in better control of blood glucose. Thanks.

CGMS - Continuous Glucose Monitoring system

Non-invasive Cardiology
Cardiologist, Thane
CGMS - Continuous Glucose Monitoring system

With the increasing prevalence of diabetes, it is being considered as the next big epidemic – completely related to lifestyle. India has become the diabetes capital of the world with increasing prevalence. The age of onset of diabetes is reducing, with children having diabetes and requiring insulin. The complications arising out of diabetes are also more – there is no bodily system which is not affected by diabetes. For someone who is diabetic, keeping blood sugars under check is the constant challenge. Uncontrolled blood sugars can lead to transient complications including loss of consciousness and fatigue and long-term complications including neuropathy and retinopathy. 

What is CGMS: 

Continuous glucose monitoring system is an FDA approved device. This device has a sensor that is placed either in the belly area or on the arm. These sensors identify the sugar levels in the body fluid and send it to a wireless which is worn by the monitor patient as a belt. Readings can be obtained at regular intervals, ranging from every 5 to 15 minutes.

CGMS measures blood sugar levels every 15 mins, that is 96 times a day The data can be downloaded into a persona device – smartphone, tablet, or laptop and used for further analysis. It does not replace the need for routine monitoring, but helps improve vigilance with a constant monitoring. It can help detect trends and patterns and helps the doctor identify periods of the day when the sugars are too high or too low. The amount of insulin or antidiabetic medication required can be adjusted based on sugar levels. The exercise regimen can be defined including the type, time, and duration of workout. Meal planning can be customized to suit body needs in a better manner. Night-time sugar lows which often go undetected can be monitored with the alarm Highs or low between meals (especially with snacking) can be tracked Determine treatment efficacy. The biggest advantage of CGM devices is that they provide information on what is happening to your blood glucose level every few minutes.

CGMS measures blood sugar levels every 15 mins, that is 96 times a day. The newest devices display glucose readings on a screen so you can see – in real time - whether glucose levels are rising or falling. Some systems also contain an alarm to let you know when your glucose reaches high or low levels. Some devices are able to display graphs revealing glucose levels collected over a certain number of hours on its display screen. The data collected on all devices can be uploaded to a computer for graphing and further important trend analysis. 

Whom is it for?

If you think this is a great way to constantly watch your sugars, it is not required. The following people would benefit from this. People with insulin pump usage Those who have frequent fluctuations in sugar level, which is not clearly explained Those who are not aware of low sugars, and may have problems with fatigue or loss of consciousness Gestational diabetes

The Usage 

Continuous glucose monitoring systems (CGMS) may not make life with diabetes any easier. But they can definitely improve health, if you can deal with the hassle and expense. So how do you know if such a system is right for you? You can easily and discreetly view your current glucose values continuously throughout the day, without having to do a finger stick. It’s easy and discreet. The monitors have “trend arrows” that show you if your level is rising or falling quickly, so you can prevent highs and lows. 

Continuous glucose monitoring can help “identify fluctuations and trends that would otherwise go unnoticed with standard HbA1c tests and intermittent fingerstick measurements. The device can capture dangerously low overnight blood sugar levels which often go undetected, reveal high blood sugar levels between meals, show early morning spikes in blood sugar, evaluate how diet and exercise affect blood sugars, and provide up to a 72-hour complete review of the effects of changes made to your therapy by your health-care team. 

If you are a dedicated investigator, you can use CGMS to understand what’s happening with your blood sugar levels. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cardiologist.

DNB (Medicine), MBBS

Banana is a rich source of pottasium. It can increase the sugars too. That's why they would have told you to avoid it. But you can have it sometimes. I do not know if there is any significant difference between all the varieties.

Hello. I am 23 years girl and fond of sweetening. As now a days the awareness about bad effect of sugar made me to think about it's consumption. So please let me know that What amount of sugar should we take everyday. Without causing any harm to our health. What is the substitute for white sugar that is more healthier than this. thanks.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, It is said a person consumes about 28 kgs of added sugar every year through various foods. This is in addition to sugar consumed through fruits & vegetables. Added sugar is mainly sucrose (white sugar) and fructose corn syrup which is added in foods. Excess intake of sugar is associated with obesity, hypertension and type 2 diabetes. There is nothing like upper limit. Basically it is best to avoid additional sugar totally if one wants to remain fit and healthy. There is no substitute to sugar. The synthetic substitutes also are harmful. Still one wants to consume more of sugar then it is his / her own choice. Thanks.

High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. GARLIC,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines . Cap.

Green tea has health benefits. It is thermogenic so helps in fat loss and is an antioxidant so helps the body nourish with phytonutrients and helps enhance performance. Green tea can be taken with breakfast, mid meals and even after meals. So you can have at least 2 cups of green tea every day. But with that you also have to eat clean and exercise well to see health benefits and lose body fats.

HbA1c 6.7, Average blood Glucose 146. Sugar 105 empty stomach and 130 after food. Can I substitute my Glisen tablets with BGR-34. If yes then how many tablets. Awaiting your valuable input.

Mr. Lybrate-user, all the values shown are within normal limit. This shows good blood sugar control as well as hypothyroidism control. You should continue the same treatment and once 3 to 4 months check hba1c% and tsh levels. The oral anti diabetic drug that is being taken is a well known established drug giving specific results. Where as tab bgr - 34 so called ayurvedic anti diabetes drug, is a combination of some herbal medicines, considered to be useful in reducing sugar. It has not been tried in any human beings. There is no clinical study at all. According to the originators of the drug it was only tried in mice, where it showed 67% success rate, which is just as good as a placebo. Plus since there is no human study, I will not be able to recommend that drug to any person.
