Though certain nuts and oil seeds are healthy for diabetics depending on their glycemic index and micronutrient density, they are calorie dense too. Therefore they should be included under HEALHTY snacking and inbetween meals rather than with meals to break the calories and distribute them evenly throughout the day.

What is pre Diabetes?
When a blood glucose levels are between normal range and diabetic range and diabetic range then its called as pre diabetic or Impaired Glucose tolerance.
Fasting Sugar: 110-126
Post – Glucose blood sugar: 140-200
Patients having blood glucose in this range are likely to develop diabetes in future. However if immediate corrective steps are taken like control weight & proper Diet with exercise then only progression from prediabetes to full blown. Diabetes can be prevented

I like sweets wery much
Please tell me How to maintain sugar level from the younger age?
Mr. Lybrate-user, there is nothing wrong in liking sweets and even eating them. Diabetes does not coe because of eating sweets, but due to deficiency of insulin or resistance to its action or both, particularly in t2 diabetes. T1 diabetes occurs in those whose pancreas (beta cells) do not produce any insulin. One needs to be more careful if parent have t2 dm, as chances of getting diabetes increase very much. Few things need to be done to prevent getting t2 dm like: regular exercise daily for more than 1 hour, maintaining normal weight, consuming healthy diet, more green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Avoiding deep fried foods, junk foods, aerated sweetened drinks, fructose corn syrup containing products, highly processed foods, high fat milk products. Also refraining from alcohol and smoking. Basically maintaing a healthy lifestyle is necessary.

That is basic defect in diabetes. Usually when we eat, immediately insulin is released called first phase release. In diabetes, this release in response to food is delayed, that causes rise in sugar. That is why medicene is given 1/2 hr before breakfast.

In human blood plasma, the reference range of uric acid is typically 3.4-7.2 mg/dL (200-430 µmol/L) for men (1 mg/dL=59.48 µmol/L), and 2.4-6.1 mg/dL for women (140-360 µmol/L) As you are normal the swelling can be due to sprain or detailed check up is needed.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you need to improve the present treatment. There is a need for additional drugs. So it is better if you come in a private conversation with details like fasting, pp blood glucose & hba1c%, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. Then I will be able to guide specifically. To achieve good control fasting sugar should be near 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg & hba1c%<7. Thanks.

Madam Naste! Pl give a clarification how sugar harm CABG patients in forming bad cholesterol instead of giving energy to body as glucose? How coconut water benefit to CABG patients.

Namastey Excess blood sugar in the body usually gets stored in the liver for later use, but when it goes beyond the normal range it gets converted to cholesterol which is bad for a CABG patient. coconut water has good amount of nutrients especially potassium which helps in controlling blood.pressure. However it can also increase blood.sugars so keep a watch on it. If patient also has kidney problems you need to watch the potassium levels.

You need to take a balanced diet. If you want to control please follow a diet chart. Eat more vegetables. Avoid low glycemic foods. Eat flax seed. Eat frequently but low calorie. Use rice bran, soya, sesame oil of doctor's choice for cooking. Use 15-20 ml oil/day.

Glyciphage increases insulin sensitivity and helps in utilisation of glucose in periphery, also checks glucose output from liver Where as voglibose prevents glucose absorption from gut to blood. You continue Glyciphage, make it twice a day.

Hello I'm a sugar patient, help me how to control My sugar level through home remedies.
Mr Shyam, If you have T2 DM mellitus then it is very essential to take proper drug treatment either with oral anti diabetes drugs or Insulin or both depending on severity of blood sugar levels. Home remedies if used may benefit only as added therapies. So it is necessary to treat firs with proper medicines.

If hyper thyroidism detected in first 3 months of pregnancy the first choice is ptu but subsequent 6 months pregnancy nmz (neomercazole) can be safely taken under close supervision of doctor as frequent 4-6 weekly thyroid testing needed so auto avoid under or overdosing.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if blood sugar level is not well controlled, then it causes damage to small blood vessels, which affects multiple organs including penile muscles leading to erectile dysfunction, so it is essential to control diabetes effectively with fasting sugar level closer to 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% < 7. Thanks for the question.
