Sir, I am 51 years old and suffering from diabetics since last 6 years and the results vary from 140 to 155 (fasting) and 180 to 200 after food. Please advise me how to maintain my sugar level and what diet should I take for that on regular basis. Thanks.

Dear , I would like to applaud the fact that you are concerned about the health issues of diabetes and are looking to monitor your sugar levels and take adequate protection for the amelioration of the issue. Diabetes comes with a number of issues, especially related to the heart, kidneys, eyes and blood vessels. Maintaining a good blood sugar level is essential for protecting your organs. For holistic control of blood sugar, the following are essential and I would be glad to go over them in more details in consultation: a. Diabetic diet, which limits you to 1600 kcal per day (could be less/more, depending on your bmi) and is supplemented with regular aerobic exercise. B. Maintenance of blood sugar, and regular monitoring of fasting and after meal sugars using a glucometer and by hba1c measurement once every 3-4 months. C. Baseline estimation of lipids, kidney function, ophthalmoscopy, heart work up, etc. To have an idea of any other organ impairment. D. Preventive and curative drugs for various issues. I would be happy to provide details on these issues if you so deem pertinent. Best regards.

Hi If your height is 1.5748 meters (5' 2"), then your ideal body can be up to 57 kgs. With 62 kgs, your BMI is 25 kgs/M2, (normal <23 kgs/M2). It means you are over weight by 5 kgs. Earlier the weight was less than normal. Hypothyroidism does lead to weight gain, particularly if TSH level is not maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. Plus if one does not exercise regularly and adhere to diet restriction. Since, there is no mention about current TSH level, it is difficult give any suggestion. Thanks.

Hello in a diabetic patient exercise, medicine and diet play equal roles. Exercise - 5 days a week at least healthy balanced diet - small n regular meals prescribed medication these 3 help in maintaining normal blood sugar levels avoid carbonated drinks, fried foods and foods like mango, banana, cheeku, arbi and zimikand include foods like green tea, cinnamon, wheat grass powder, lemon water, jeera water, diluted salted lassi, seasonal fruits and veggies. Apart from these a homemade powder is extremely beneficial in keeping blood sugar levels normal. It requires: almonds - 50 neem leaves dry - 50 green elaichi - 50 whole black pepper - 50 bhuna channa without chilka - 125g grind to a fine powder n store in airtight container. Take 1 tsp after breakfast and 1 tsp before dinner. Thank you.

Yes he can have fruits such as pomegranate, dates palm, pappaya, orange. Foods prepared of wheat & millets are more good. Intake of oats prepared with milk once daily is very good. Having dinner by 7-8 can help to control fbs. Then with ayurvedic sugar medicines, I can provide you it. I prepare ayurvedic medicines at my home for my patients. If possible I will courier you the medicines to your address. Or else you can have powder of fenugreek seeds daily 2 tablespoon mixed with water. By doing all this gradually his pancreas will come to normal. Also I suggest the practice of yoga nd meditation esply suryanamaskar.

Just simple modifications and a good balanced diet plan will get your sugar levels normal. Increase proteins and reduce simple carbs in your diet. Eat frequent meals. And drink atleast 3ltrs of water. For a personalised diet plan you can consult with me online.
