The moment we get diagnosed with diabetes, our minds cringe in fear by the thought of all the restraint on our life, especially diet, which would be imposed on us for a lifetime, taking away the joy from celebrations and fun eat out sessions etc. Diet management is of utmost importance in diabetes not only to control blood sugar levels but also to keep other risks such as body weight and heart risk factors at bay. People with HbA1c levels mild to moderately elevated (<7.5%) at diagnosis, may be advised to take a diet and lifestyle modification trial before they are put on any drugs and some of these people will be able to control their diabetes/pre-diabetes for a significant amount of time without drugs. Even for people on drugs or insulin diet and lifestyle management is equally important. Therefore, dietary modifications to manage risk factors for CVD are very important in diabetics. These modifications include controlling the intake of salt and ‘bad’ fats in your diet, and the recommended levels of intake are lower than those in general population Diabetics in general are often advised even by their doctors and dieticians, some times, to consume ‘low fat’ diet to manage their heart risk. But In India, where average intake of carbs is much higher than recommended intake of fat, for most people, such an advice is not only erroneous, it is harmful! (Read: Indian diet: ‘pro’s and ‘con’s, to know more) Instead what is needed is to replace the ‘bad’ fats, present in high quantities in vanaspati (found in snack items and restaurant/ fast food meals etc.), full cream milk, butter, ghee and red meat (but not mutton: read more), with vegetable oils (such as olive, canola, rice bran etc. But not coconut and palm oil)

I am dibatic patient level fasting 135 and after meal 180 to 200. Kindly suggest safe medicine.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Diabetes affects all organs from foot to hair. You need to keep a strict control by self monitoring blood glucose (smbg) by glucometer and keep a record to titrate the dose. Diet has to be designed for your calorie needs depending on your age and physical activity. Check your hba1c and send me reports. Now you start with glycomet sr tablets 1-0-1 and check fbs, 2hr ppbs and hba1c after a week and send your reports to me. A diabetic need a constant regular support of a doctor which I can provise you if you remain in personal touch by asking privately.

Hello, Thanks for your query. It very unlikely that all efforts to control blood glucose would fail. Since there is no mention about current blood glucose levels, HbA1c%, drugs with dosage and also about diet and exercise, it is very difficult to comment anything. If you and your son are keen on getting appropriate treatment then please come back with following details: Fasting, PP glucose lvels, HbA1c%, weight, height, present drugs with dosage, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. Then based on those details I will be able to give specific guidamce. Thanks.

Hello Ms. lybrate-user Insulin doesn't create allergies. You must be having allergy problems before also, but they may have increased by now, due to diabetes. Get CBC, ESR done. We need to see your investigations and discuss your problem in detail. I can't write medicines here without proper diagnosis. Kindly consult me in private for complete treatment. Thank u.

Hello, loose your extra weight this will not only lower your blood but also helps lowering your blood pressure and cholesterol too. You need to bring a little change in your life style and routine and diet. Timely and balanced diet is as important as regular medicine intake to control diabetes. High fibre diet including greens and whole grains are to be included in the diet. No long grapes and skipping of meals. No over eating. Avoid junk food. Take small and frequent meals. You can consult me privately online on Lybrate I will you more suggestions.

My wife has sugar level between 300 and 400 -fasting and post what you suggest. She is under the treatment of a specialist but it does not come down.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
Either your wife is not following advices given by her specialist or your specialist is not taking proper care. Treatment of diabetes needs 1) medicines - that a doctor specialist can only advice. 2) patient's participation in treatment (70% of the treatment effectivity depends on it) by the way of dietary management, exercise and weight control if overweight. 3) monitoring for the disease control and prevention of complication. If you are sure your wife is following advices in toto about diet and exercise and weight control, you change the doctor without further trial.

Have been developing frequent sty on right eye. Normal sugar test were negative. No history of diabetics in family. Yet on fasting, my sugar reading showed 158 today with glucose meter. What dietary precautions to follow?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
What do you mean normal sugar test was negative? if glucometer is showing 158 mg, it is better to check fasting and after food sugar levels and hba1c also. If diabetes is confirmed take proper treatment. For repeated sty take tablet moxikind - cv 625 twice a day for 6 days. Infection will be mostly controlled.

I sweat a lot on slight physical activity. My thyroid test is also normal. What could be the problem ? It irritates a lot. Any medicine?

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Sweating is meant to cool your body when you physically strain yourself. Sweating - contrary to popular belief - indicates healthy state. It indicates that your sweat glands are responsive and your skin is healthy/hydrated. Medicines are for diseases - sweating is not a disease.

You are in category of" impaired glocose tolerance. You don't need medicine at this stage. You need a healthy life style. Like taking food with high fiber content. Like oats, dalia. Pulses, plenty of vegetables. Regular exercise. Stress is aggravating factor so avoid stress. Regular follow up with your family doctor.

Dear Lybrate User, One of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as DIABETES MELLITUS. Once a patient is diagnosed with Diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. However, the patient does not need to take medicine unless his/her Post. Prandial Blood Sugar level reaches 200. If Post. Prandial Blood Sugar level reaches 200 then patient should take the following Homoeopathic medications:- 1)Homeopathic URANIUM NIT 3X TABLETS (R.S. BHARGAVA company). Take one tablet thrice daily, in empty stomach 2) 30 drops of Homeopathic Mother Tincture GYMNEMA SYLVESTRA Q, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water Along with intake of medicines the patient need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. In order to decrease the intake of carbohydrate in diet the patient should avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc
