Balanced diet helps in controlling all disease and nutritional deficiencies aggrevate them. Abundand fruits and vegetables in diet have all essential nutrients with best bioavailability to the body. And so this diet is the balanced and most natural diet. This normalises weight, nutrients and balance in the body. Breakfast= fruits only. Abundant amount. Lunch/dinner= half plate salad, 1 katori sprouts, green vegetables 2 to 3 katori, daal 2 to 3 katori, only 1 roti in one meal. Evening time fruits are also good. Stop having: milk, milk products, refined foods, packaged food of any kind like bread namkeen buiscuits maida etc. As these have all kinds of adulteration now a days with reports of urea level exceeding the limit even in mother dairy milk. Do light excercise for two hours daily slowly without straining yourself. Have plenty of fluids and water daily.

May be you need to alter your diet- reduce simple carbohydrates replace it by complex fiber base carbohydrate like fruits, vegetable parathas or fiber base protein like vegetable dals or sprouts. Reduce oil consumption less than 3 teaspoons per day. May weight reduction also help you. If no improvement within 1 month then you may need change of medicine if your hba1c more than 8%

Can sugar patients eat egg daily? is egg beneficial for them ?
It is safer to eat egg white and not yolk, if you eat daily. But there is no harm in eating once weekly and you must always monitor blood sugar. It is safer to eat one or twice a week. If you eat daily eat white of egg and not yolk. Asm me for regular advice as personal doctor.

Long standing diabetes patients suffer from autonomic neuropathy. Which lead to loss of sweat in foot and lower limb area. Autonomic neuropathy is irreversible. You can apply calamine lotion and moisturiser to foot n leg to avoid drying. Antihistaminics like levocetrizine will take care of itching.

dont search for unbleached sugar. Following are the tips to prevent onset/or control diabetes 1-Losing Extra Weight:-The most significant thing which can make a big difference to your health is to lose your extra weight. This will not only lower your blood pressure but also helps lowering your cholesterol too. For woman: waist of 80 cm or more & for man: waist of 90 cm or more are at risk 2- Constant and regular food timings :-the timings at which you have your meals should be set fixed and at regular intervals each day. This will considerably improve your metabolic activity and helps reducing your weight. 3- Split your meals and eating in moderate amount:-Splitting your meals into 3-4 times per day (including snacks)and eating in fair and consistent amount , improves your metabolic rate as the food u take is not concentrated at one time. 4- No long Gaps and skipping of meals:-There should be no long gaps between meals. Never miss out breakfast. 5- No overeating:-Never eat in a bulk on one time .Try to have moderate amount of food each time u eat. It will help maintain your blood sugar at a healthy level and won’t let it to fluctuate. Remember to eat your food slowly, chew well. 6- Proper Exercise and work outs:-Exercise is very important and a fast way to trim down calories, extra weight and controlling glucose level. Brisk walking for 30 min. atleast five times a week is the best and easiest way of exercising. You can also try Cycling, swimming, dancing. Timings for exercise should be fixed and regular. Avoid heavy exercise. Do not eat right away after a workout . 7-constant and regular timings for medication 8-Avoid fried foods and meat: Limit fats and sweets. Rather choose a variety of foods including whole grains, fresh vegetables, salads, fruits, low fat dairy products. 9- Take high-fibre and complex carbohydrates:-like oats as they are easily broken down to basic sugars. Add whole grain foods in your diet. Avoid carbohydrates like white bread, pasta, pizza , candies, and snacks .Instead include high-fiber carbohydrates like wheat bran, flaxseed and methi seeds to your wheat flour. This will increase fibre in your diet. 10-Drink enough fluids:-Keep your body well hydrated. Drink a lot of water that will help flush the toxins off your system. 11.Fresh vegetables and fruits:- gives essential benefits as these contain a lot of vital minerals as well as nutrients .Include sprouts in the diet as they are easily digestible and a rich source of nutrients. 12- Avoid excess salt:-in form of pickles/papads etc. 1 tsp(5 gm)is sufficient for a healthy hypertensive individual. 13-Avoid alcohol consumption:-Alcohols such as beer and wine contains large amount of calories. choose sugar-free drink. 14- dairy products :-Dairy products are high on fat content such as cheese, curd, milk etc. So instead consume skimmed milk products , low fat cheese, yogurt (curd) etc. Do not have more than two cups of tea or coffee every day. Try green tea instead.

If you manage your diet well and eat proteins like egg, fish, chicken or paneer or beans, then your protein requirements will be taken care off. With every meal eat a little bit of protein. Lower the amount of starches from your meals and add healthy oils like ghee, cold pressed coconut oil, cold pressed til oil. If at all you want to supplement then you can use whey protein powder.

Hi and thanks for asking a question. Dear lybrate user if your diabetes is not controlled by taking insulin. So I am suggesting you some thing which must you do which can help you in lowering you blood sugar. Rx if you are injecting insulin at one site for a long time you must change that site because there can be fatty deposits which lower functioning of insulin. You should always check your glucose level. Lower sugary diet. No carbohydrate. No fried foods and junks. More green vegetables and fruits. And despite if it is not lowering then you must visit some medical officer (doctor) for your better treatment. Thanks.

Hello sir, She is having diabetes for over 6 years. Her blood glucose level remains high what should she do?

Hello sir, She is having diabetes for over 6 years. Her blood glucose level remains high what should she do?
Dear patient, a proper measure for knowing and managing your diabetes will be to ensure a hba1c below 6.5%. Regarding diet, we have high carbohydrate diet. You have to closely observe your plate and you can come up with a better diet plan for yourself. To simplify it, identify the items which are carb rich in your plate and try to compensate the same with protein and fibres, for eg cut down a roti and increase sabji, dal or salad. To have a better control you can do a monthly self glucose monitoring 3 times a day and keep a track of the food with it. Check fasting sugar, sugar one hour prior to lunch and 2 hrs post lunch, and note down the details of her breakfast and lunch items. Modify as per my earlier suggestions and within a week you will see your blood sugar level responding. Keep a regular exercise schedule, around 45 mins walk would also do. Best of luck. Please note self glucose monitoring and diet control is the only way to manage diabetes.

Dear, Can feel your anxiety about your health. Your insulin dose needs to be increased with help of treating Dr. This isn't due to resistance to insulin that you've been taking. If you use glucose ter to monitor your blood glucose, it'll be very easy to adjust the dose of insulin. Insulin dose is always changing based on your requirements.

I am having thyroid n was on medication if 87.5 mg. But I got my thyroid test yesterday n I got it 8.25. What should I do.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
your current test also shows tsh levels fairly high, so continue at the same dosage level. Plus keep doing periodic thyroid assay (once every 8 weeks or so, to see if the thyroxine dosage is adequate or needs to be increased. I am sure you are aware of taking thyroxine tablets in the early morning on empty stomach and nothing to be taken after that for 2 hs. Plus avoid soya and soya containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, pea nuts and coffee. Consume more green leafy vegetables. Salads, use whole grain flour for making rotis and chapatis. Exercise regularly to avoid weight increase.

If I take boiled fenugreek early morning empty stomach is causes reduced sugar levels in my body? Kindly guide me.
Dear Patient Fenugreek seeds (trigonella foenum graecum) are high in soluble fibre, which helps lower blood sugar by slowing down digestion and absorption of carbohydrates. This suggests they may be effective in treating people with diabetes. But it is not alternative to medicines that control diabetes. Regards.
