I have diabetes and high blood pressure
I need precautions and food limits to keep it in control
Thank you.
You need to know the low and high glycaemic foods, that is foods that increase /delay the rise in blood sugars. For example white bread has a high gi (glycaemic index) as compared to whole wheat bread. Portion size of your diet will depend on your sugar level, body weight etc. For high bp, you need to cut down all your non veg, processed and bakery products. Certain natural foods are also high in sodium content that needs to be cut down by leeching it.

Hi drink some bitter gourd juice on an empty stomach each morning. First remove the seeds of two to three bitter gourds and use a juicer to extract the juice. Add some water and then drink it. Follow this treatment daily in the morning for at least two months. Take pranacharya diabeto and shilajeet capsule twice a day with water. Take vasant kusumakar ras twice a day. Avoid sweets. Take small meals in less time interval. Do pranayama early morning. Avoid alcohol consumption.

I am 47 years old female. Last week I checked my blood sugar. Fasting -125 PP-160. Should I start on tablets?

I am 47 years old female. Last week I checked my blood sugar. Fasting -125 PP-160. Should I start on tablets?
Hello, You are not in the diabetic range. These blood results show that you are in pre-diabeties range. Ideally, to diagnose if a patient is diabetic or not, we need to repeat the FBG and PPBG a second time atleast one week apart from the first test. So, please get the tests repeated again and also get the HbA1C done (this shows the average blood glucose over the last 3 months). Even if the next test reports come as pre-diabetes or borderline diabetes range, I would advise you to follow lifestyle modifications for 3 months and see. For pre-diabetes the management is lifestyle changes. This means 1) avoid sugary and high calorie food like sweets/bakery items/cakes/pastries etc 2) avoid fatty food 3) eat plenty of vegetables and whole grains and whole grain flour items 4) consume lot fat milk 5) exercise atleast 45 min everyday. Hope this helps you Thank you.

If you are not able to go for a walk daily, then stay active in some form or other like climbing stairs at your home. Secondly, for leg pain dip your legs in warm water daily before going to bed, it improves blood circulation.

The difficult part which I see in sorting out your problem is not the diet chart or highly uncontrolled sugars - but the fact that the concerns are yours and not that of your father's! You are disturbed because your father is having such a high sugar and is having such a undisciplined lifestyle but believe me, you will never be able to bring a change in any of these if you are unable to bring a change in the attitude of your father. Firstly he has to realise what high sugars can do to his body. Then he has to accept that he is not immune to such complications and he can also develop such effects on his body as well. And lastly, he has make suitable changes in his routine and diet. By merely handing him over a diet chart- you will achieve nothing. Involve your other family members as well. First change his thoughts then his attitude and the his behaviour!

There is no natural remedy as this is the result of your pancreas losing its function. If you send me reports of fbs, 2hr ppbs and hba1c I can help you achieve better control and life.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. I will have 2 recommendations for you: 1) please get a regular opinion of a diabetologist because one reading does not mean that you are cured of blood sugar problems. 2) as far as your leg pain goes, it can be due to multiple reasons but I can advise you in a better manner if I can see some of your blood test reports like cbc, esr, cro, serum potassium and serum vitamin d levels. Also please tell me whether there is any swelling, or any other s/s of inflammation like redness, local warmth etc? over the involved leg? also if possible please send me a clinical picture of involved leg pointing towards site of pain so that I can see and understand. Till that time you can actually start with ice packs, limb elevation at home and a short course of anti inflammatory medication do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

10 milli units, then treatment with thyroxine hormone is needed. Workout or exercise is to avoid weight gain which occurs as a consequence of hypothyroidism. So if you do not want add extra weight, then there is no option, but to find time for exercise. You should avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Also consume more of green leafy vegetables salads and fruits. Should use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. These precautions in addition to thyroxine in adequate dose will help in controlling tsh level in turn hypothyroidism">dipaliji, by mentioning" thyroid level" are you talking about high tsh levels? because there is nothing like thyroid levels. If tsh is high > 10 milli units, then treatment with thyroxine hormone is needed. Workout or exercise is to avoid weight gain which occurs as a consequence of hypothyroidism.

Pure organic honey is not bad. Unfortunately the honey available in the supermarket is usually adultrated with sugar which is bad. If you are sure of the source of the honey you may give it to her in moderation. More important is managing her diet and metabolic balance. Appropriate supplements, excercise and positive lifestyle changes equally important.

If your mother's Fasting Sugar is 160, then I hope she is taking medicines for it after consulting a physician or diabetologist. To control Diabetes, she needs a complete change in lifestyle and diet. Only then it is possible to reduce diabetes. Yes it is possible to reduce step by step. 1. Daily exercise, walk for min 30 mins 2. Reduce all sugars, and simple carbs from the diet. Eat complex grains and proteins. 3. Reduce fatty foods and oily foods. 4. Reduce all sweets. 5. Do mindful eating. 6. Every Kg reduction in weight will reduce the impact of diabetes. For personalised plan, you can consult me privately.

Sir please I want to know about diabetes. Is weight decrease related to diabetes?
Diabetes mellitus, or simply diabetes, is a chronic disease that occurs when the pancreas is no longer able to make insulin, or when the body cannot make good use of the insulin it produces. Insulin is a hormone made by the pancreas, that acts like a key to let glucose from the food we eat pass from the blood stream into the cells in the body to produce energy. All carbohydrate foods are broken down into glucose in the blood. Insulin helps glucose get into the cells. Not being able to produce insulin or use it effectively leads to raised glucose levels in the blood (known as hyperglycaemia). Over the long-term high glucose levels are associated with damage to the body and failure of various organs and tissues. There are three main types of diabetes: Type 1 diabetes used to be called juvenile-onset diabetes. It is usually caused by an auto-immune reaction where the body’s defence system attacks the cells that produce insulin. The reason this occurs is not fully understood. People with type 1 diabetes produce very little or no insulin. The disease may affect people of any age, but usually develops in children or young adults. People with this form of diabetes need injections of insulin every day in order to control the levels of glucose in their blood. If people with type 1 diabetes do not have access to insulin, they will die. Type 2 diabetes used to be called non-insulin dependent diabetes or adult-onset diabetes, and accounts for at least 90% of all cases of diabetes. It is characterised by insulin resistance and relative insulin deficiency, either or both of which may be present at the time diabetes is diagnosed. The diagnosis of type 2 diabetes can occur at any age. Type 2 diabetes may remain undetected for many years and the diagnosis is often made when a complication appears or a routine blood or urine glucose test is done. It is often, but not always, associated with overweight or obesity, which itself can cause insulin resistance and lead to high blood glucose levels. People with type 2 diabetes can often initially manage their condition through exercise and diet. However, over time most people will require oral drugs and or insulin. Both type 1 and type 2 diabetes are serious. There is no such thing as mild diabetes. Gestational diabetes (GDM) is a form of diabetes consisting of high blood glucose levels during pregnancy. It develops in one in 25 pregnancies worldwide and is associated with complications to both mother and baby. GDM usually disappears after pregnancy but women with GDM and their children are at an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes later in life. Approximately half of women with a history of GDM go on to develop type 2 diabetes within five to ten years after delivery.
