yes but if you are not diabetic then nothing to worry about. it is always better to consume fresh fruit instead of juice as it lacks fiber.

Hi she is taking the best regime of insulin. The only option left is now to go in for a insulin pump. But please meet a doctor or a diabetic educator who can guide you for insulin adjustments. You should know carbohydrate counting and insulin sensitivity factor (isf) to adjust your doses and take corrective doses of insulin. As for fasting try increase the dose of lantus to correct the fasting. I hope lantus is taken at fixed tie everyday. Try to do some exercise like walking lightly after dinner. All the best

Mr. K V Sethuraman, Your blood glucose levels are fairly good, within the recommended limits, particularly fasting glucose. What is the HbA1c%, it should be <7. If you have well controlled diabetes, then you can donate the kidney to a needy person.

Sugar free are not a good option, especially in someone so young. Please avoid sugar free. It is better to avoid sugar all together. If at all you. Have to take, sugar can be taken in small quantities.

Hi Few diet changes can help in reducing your Fasting blood sugar. 1. Finish your dinner by 8 pm. 2. Avoid taking dinner rich in carbohydrates like white rice, pasta, bread, biscuits, fruits as well. 3. Have a protein drink just before going to bed. 4. Sleep well. 5. Avoid stress. MOST importantly DO NOT MISS YOUR MEDICATIONS. Inspite of these changes if your FBS is still high you need dose adjustment of your medications.

I am 46 years old I am diabetic since last 5 years I am taking the medicines daily my question:- I want to know the what all things I need to avoid as a precautions, in taking food, fruits, juices, non veg, etc.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Controlling blood sugar it is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. What are the medicines you take? 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) 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. 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 privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch.

In diabetes the most important thing is diet and exercise.These two things can control high sugar levels.So do regular exercise like walking,yoga,sit ups and other free hand exercises.Take balanced diet.Eat small amount of foods more frequently.Take foods 5-6 times instead of 3 big meals.Avoid fast foods,junk foods,processed foods,sugar,sweetened juice,soft drinks,underground vegetables pumpkin,banana.Eat unrefined foods but not more.Take watery vegetables,whole fruits.Take egg white,lean meat,fish,dairy products and other protein sources more to control diabetes.Add small amount of healthy fats.Take walnut,almond,seeds.Drink lots of water specially before meals.Avoid smoking,alcohol.Use nutritional supplement in this regard.Take stress free rest and these will help you.

Hello, weight reduction is a tough task. Following things need to be concentrated: 1) your caloric intake has to be strictly planned based on your ideal body weight (ibw) which should be 50 kg and level of physical exercise. 2) avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries, 3) daily exercise schedule should be for more than 1 hour, should include aerobic activity for 20 minutes, stretching and brisk walking 4) set a target of loosing 2 - 3 kgs per month. By reducing 550 k calories per day you can cut 1/2 a kg weight per week, along with above mentioned physical activity. 5) there is no need to increase the dose of thyronorm now, but a periodic tsh levels check should be done.

I am diabetic patient and insulin dependent. Can I use tablets instead of injection?
Hello, please continue with insulin as doctor prescribed. If there is a possibility, doctor should have suggested the medicine instead. Its good to control your diabetes. But along with medication, you need to concentrate on food also. Make sure you food must have high protein, fiber and omega-3 nutrition. For a diabetics, its good to have more protein rather than carbohydrates, which converts into glucose and may have a chance to increase the diabetes. What we suggest is the nutrigemoic protein, who certified, with 9 essential amino acids. This will help you cure your diabetics in a year time. But you will definitely have a result, if you can use protein with vitamins and minerals, fiber and omega-3 supplements.
