Diet Chart For Diabetes Patient

MBBS, D.P.H
General Physician, Gurgaon
Diet Chart For Diabetes Patient

 

In India 61 million people are victims of diabetes.

Diabetes disease related to metabolic, in which oxidation of carbohydrates and glucose is not fully detected. Diabetes mellitus is a chronic metabolic disorder in which the body fails to convert sugars, starches and other foods into energy. Many of the foods you eat are normally converted into a type of sugar called glucose during digestion. The bloodstream then carries glucose through the body. The hormone, insulin, then turns glucose into quick energy or is stored for futher use. In diabetic people, the body either does not make enough insulin or it cannot use the insulin correctly. This is why too much glucose builds in the bloodstream.

The main reason is irregular meal, mental stress, lack of exercise.
There are two major types of diabetes:

1. Type 1
This is popularly known as juvenile onset diabetes.
Here, the body produces little or no insulin. It occurs most often in childhood or in the teens and could be inherited.
People with this type of diabetes need daily injections of insulin. They must balance their daily intake of food and activities carefully with their insulin shots to stay alive.


2. Type 2
Also known as adult onset diabetes, this occurs around 35 to 40 years. The more common of the two types, it accounts for about 80 per cent of the diabetics.
Here, though the pancreas produce adequate insulin, body cells show reduced sensitivity towards it.
Type 2 diabetes is usually triggered by obesity. The best way to fight it is by weight loss, exercise and dietary control.
Sometimes, oral medication or insulin injections are also needed.

Symptoms of diabetes
    Extreme thirst and hunger
    Frequent urination
    Sores or bruises that heal slowly
    Dry, itchy skin
    Unexplained weight loss
    Unusual tiredness or drowsiness
    Tingling or numbness in the hands or feetsymptoms of diabetes

The role of diet in diabetes
Meal of diabetic patient is depending on calories. Which decides on it s age, weight, gender, height, working etc. Depending on each person s different   different dietary chart is created. We must take special care of time and amount of food in diabetes. Here we are giving diet chart for general diabetes patient.

Diabetes diet chart:
Morning at 6:   teaspoon fenugreek (methi) powder + water. 
Morning at 7: 1 cup sugar free tea + 1-2 mary biscuits.
Morning at 8.30: 1 plate upma or oatmeal + half bowl sprouted grains + 100ml cream-free milk without sugar
Morning at 10.30: 1 small fruit or 1 cup thin and sugar free buttermilk or lemon water
Lunch at 1: 2 roti of mixed flour, 1 bowl rice, 1 bowl pulse, 1 bowl yogurt, half cup soybean or cheese vegetable, half bowl green vegetable, one plate salad
4 pm: 1 cup tea without sugar + 1-2 less sugar biscuits or toast
6 pm: 1 cup soup
8.30 pm: 2 roti of mixed flour, 1 bowl rice, 1 bowl pulse, half bowl green vegetable, one plate salad
10.30 pm: take 1 cup cream -free milk without sugar.
When you feel hungry intake raw vegetables, salad, black tea, soups, thin buttermilk, lemon water.

Avoid it: molasses, sugar, honey, sweets, dry fruits.

Foods you must avoid!

I. Salt: salt is the greatest culprit for diabetics. You get enough salt from vegetables in inorganic form, so reduce the intake of inorganic salt.

II. Sugar: sucrose, a table sugar, provides nothing but calories and carbohydrates. Also, you need calcium to digest sucrose. Insufficient sucrose intake might lead to calcium being leached off the bones. Substitute sucrose with natural sugar, like honey, jaggery (gur), etc.

III. Fat: excessive fat intake is definitely not a good habit. Try and exclude fried items from your diet totally. But, remember, you must have a small quantity of oil to absorb fat-soluble vitamins, especially vitamin e.

IV. For non-vegetarians
Try and stop the intake of red meat completely. Try to go in for a vegetarian diet. If you cannot, decrease the consumption of eggs and poultry.
You can, however, eat lean fish two to three times a week.

V. Whole milk and products

Try to switch to low fat milk and its products like yogurt (curd).

Replace high fat cheese with low fat cottage cheese.

VI. Tea and coffee

Do not have than two cups of the conventional tea or decaffeinated coffee every day.

Try to switch to herbal teas.

VII. White flour and its products

Replace these with whole grains, wholewheat or soya breads and unpolished rice.

VIII. Foods with a high glycemic index

Avoid white rice, potatoes, carrots, breads and banana -- they increase the blood-sugar levels. 

Advice for diabetes patient:
    35-40 minute faster walk every day.
    Diabetic person should eat food between times intervals like take breakfast in morning, lunch, some snakes and dinner.
    Avoid oily food.
    Intake more fiber foods in meals. It increases glucose level gradually in blood and keeps control.
    Do not take fast and also don t go much party.
    Diabetic person should eat food slowly.
    
 Calorific requirement:
 
 An obese middle aged or elderly patient with mild diabetes 1000 -1600 kcal.
 An elderly diabetic but not over weight  1400 -1800 kcal.
 A young active diabetic  1800 -3000 kcal.
 Daily intake of carbohydrate: 1/10th of total calories approximately  180gm.
 Daily intake of protein: 60gm to 110gm.
 Daily intake of fat: 50gm to 150gm.

pOLYMENORRHAGIA IS NOT A SIGN OF MENOPAUSE BUT A SIGN OF POSSIBLE organic endometrial or myometrial causes for excessive bleeding. She should get a ultrasound pelvis done soon to rule out any fibroids, submucosal polyp. Also a visit to gyn is important for ruling out cervical causes and for endometrial biopsy to rule out endometrial hyperplasia or cancer. Also a hormonal profile shall be required to complete the assessment.

Hi! while you are feeding the baby, hormonal changes in the body can lead to missed periods. This time your pregnancy test is negative, so you should expect your periods after some time. If you don't want pregnancy now, please use some suitable birth control method because you can get pregnant even if you are not getting periods. Take care and let me know after 2 weeks if you got your periods or not.

Decreasing Fatigue Now that your body has had a trimester to adjust to pregnancy, you may be starting to feel a little less tired these days. Consider channeling your newfound energy into your workout routine — but don’t overdo it!

Pick bras with plenty of support to ease your discomfort. Read more Food Cravings & Aversions If you still have a yen for weird foods, don’t be too hard on yourself. Do your best to find healthy foods that appeal to you and give yourself permission to indulge in small portions of the junk foods you crave. Read more Heartburn & Indigestion During pregnancy, the muscle at the top of the stomach relaxes, allowing digestive acids to rise up into the esophagus — causing a burning in the chest. Reduce the pain by staying away from these heartburn triggers: alcohol, caffeinated drinks, chocolate, mint, citrus and spicy or fatty foods. Read more Constipation Your bowel muscles also relax during pregnancy (due to hormones), which means your bowels will be less efficient at moving waste out of your system. If you find yourself backed up, slowly start adding more high-fiber foods to your diet (fruits, vegetables and whole grains are good picks).

Not to much if you have given this pill. Wait for period. If it doesn't not come on expected date go for urine for pregnancy test.
