Are pickle good for health for diabetes patient or harmful for a diabetic patient help me out.
Mr. Lybrate-user, pickles contain a lot of salt, which is basically unhealthy. These are taken to enhance the taste of food, but they are definitely not good. Especially in a person with raised blood pressure pickles are a taboo. For others too a little bit occasionally may be used. Ther is no health benefit from them.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Any thyroid growth either a nodule or a cyst, it is better to consult an endocrinologist nearby. Also get a thyroid assay and report those results, that will give some idea. Further if the lesion is growing, then an Ultrasono graphy may have to be done and if needed fine needle aspiration cytology may be needed. Mostly cysts are not harmful, but a detailed investigation has to be done. Thanks.

If she is having low blood sugar & is a definite Type 1 diabetic, then insulin is the only reason for that. Her kidney function should also be assessed to check if the insulin is staying longer than expected in her body. Eating sweets is not the remedy, rather insulin dosing should be adjusted. Her diagnosis of Type 1 should also be reconsidered if the situation remains despite not taking insulin. Regards.

Manage Your Diabetes With These Ayurvedic Remedies!

Manage Your Diabetes With These Ayurvedic Remedies!

Diabetes is a chronic metabolic disorder that results in higher levels of blood sugars in the body. It is assuming epidemic proportions, and India has become the new diabetic capital with more than 50 million diabetic people. The main problem with diabetes is it does not completely go away, and there is a whole myriad of issues that it brings along with it. Heart attacks, strokes, eyesight problems, delayed wound healing, nerve damage and impotence. Therefore, diabetes and by that we mainly mean blood sugar levels have to be managed so that there is delay in onset of the associated conditions and/or reduced in severity.

Ayurveda refers to diabetes as Prameha (excessive urination) and Madhumeha (sugary urine) and has identified close to 20 forms of the disease. According to Ayurvedic belief, each disease is caused due to imbalance in kapha, pitta, and vata doshas and diabetes is caused by all these, predominantly by kapha. With any stream of medicine, management of diabetes involves two tracks - one is lifestyle changes and the second is medications.

Lifestyle changes include the following:

  1. Diet: Reduce the amount of rice, sugar, potato, sweet fruits, maida, deep fried foods, and red meat. Protein-rich foods like lentils, soya, green leafy vegetables and fish should be increased. Diet plan should change to small, frequent meals instead of binge eating.
  2. Exercise: Include 30 minutes of regular exercise into your daily routine if you have a diabetic predisposition.
  3. Others: Avoid smoking and alcohol, ensure sufficient sleep, avoid sleeping during day time, improved foot and eye care, periodically check sugar levels, and manage stress levels.

Medication:
Ayurveda has a whole lot of home remedies proven to be very effective against diabetes.

  1. Jambhul: Eugenia Jambolana whether eaten raw or juice extract has been shown to have beneficial effects in managing sugar levels and cholesterol.
  2. Gymnema sylvestre: Used to manage diabetes for over 2000 years, it reduces sugar cravings and is being touted as the future for diabetes treatment.
  3. Bitter gourd (Momordica charantia): It has 3 components that give it strong antidiabetic properties. The charantin reduces blood sugar levels; the polypeptide has insulin-like effects; and lectin that again has hypoglycemic effects.
  4. Bel (Aegle marmelos): Also known as wood apple, leaves of the plant are shown to have antidiabetic properties. 5 to 10 leaves can be chewed on a daily basis to help control blood sugar levels.
  5. Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum graecum): Consuming 10 g of fenugreek seeds soaked in water increases the amount of insulin produced, thereby increasing sugar breakdown.
  6. Neem: Chewing about 4 to 5 leaves in the morning on an empty stomach helps to control blood sugar levels. Alternately, neem leaves powder is available which can be dissolved in water and consumed.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

What is the symptom of diabetes. And how to control the sugar level in human body?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
What is the symptom of diabetes. And how to control the sugar level in human body?
Increased thirst, appetite and urination are the early symptoms. Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take.

It is kind of safe if you dont have heart problem or not having chest pain. But before that improve your sugar level that itself will lead to better sexual performance.
