Mr. lybrate-user, It is difficult to answer about how many grams of sugar and carbs to be eaten. Basically if one is in a pre-diabetes state, then over all caloric intake has to be restricted to meet the exact requirement based on - Ideal body weight X 25 calories per kg / day. In your case IBW should be around 60 kgs. So 60 X 25 cal /Kg = 1500 calories, that means your total dietary intake should be 1500 cals per day. It best to avoid sugar or jaggery or sweets in total. Honey is also similar to sugar, there is hardly any difference. It is supposed to give some additional anti-oxidents. But only a small quantity should be used. Complex carbs like whole grain products are best. Do not use maida, pasta, bakery items, junk foods, sugary aerated drinks, pastries etc. Avoid deep fried foods and fructose corn syrup containing products and highly processed packaged products. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads and fruits. Daily exercise of at least 1 hour is necessary. Thanks.

Managing wounds at home

A wound is a disruption of the normal structure and function of the skin.
Antibiotic therapy is not indicated in all wounds and is reserved only for infected wounds.
It is important to keep blood sugar under control while managing a wound.
All wounds, which are contaminated or have foreign bodies, need debridement.
Irrigation of the wound reduces bacterial load and also removes loose material.
Wound irrigation can be done with warm saline.
Principles of wound management are: scrub, clean and dress.
Scrubbing means that dressing should be done with clean hands, which requires proper scrubbing of the hands.
Would cleaning means that the wound should first be cleaned.
After cleaning, the wound requires a proper dressing.
Some wounds may require suturing, especially if the wound is of less than six hours duration.
In an accident if a finger is cut or a tooth is removed, one should preserve the finger or the tooth and take it to the nearest hospital along with the patient for reimplantation.
The best way to carry the amputated finger or uprooted tooth is to put them in a plastic bag and put that bag in a box containing ice.
Skin burns should be treated firstly by putting the area under the running water till the burning disappears.
In a patient with burns, the blister that forms should not be punctured.
Presence of pain is also a good sign and indicates that the burns are superficial.

Hi Lybrate User, As per your measurements your BMI is 31.2 which is in 'Obese' Category. It means you could reduce about 15 kgs which is already causing problems for you like BP, Cholesterol etc. 1. Olive oil is mainly used for salad dressing etc because of its low smoke point. 2. Olive oil is not suitable for Indian Cooking at high temperatures. 3. It is better to use a variety of simple oils produced locally like Saffola, Groundnut, Mustard, Sunflower, Rice Bran oil. 4. Point to note that whatever oil you use, the max oil per day must not exceed 4 Teaspoons of oil. 5. Some bit of oils you must get from Almonds, which you can eat about 15 per day. 6. You also have to get your refined sugars/carbs under control. 7. Its better you visit a dietician and adopt a change in lifestyle and food habits. 8. Olive oil is not going to help you in this. 9. Good health does not cost any money. 10. Good health needs commitment to change your lifestyle. Make a commitment to change your habits and change your life.
