for a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise like brisk walking, strength training or yoga and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Probably yes, but first correct your thyroid then try to conceive, because it may affect your baby in fetal development. If you have any further queries, consult me through lybrate app.

How brain gets effected due to hypoglycaemia? Is there any test to detect insulin overdose as cause of hypoglycaemia? Is the effect to brain fatal?Please tell.

How brain gets effected due to hypoglycaemia? Is there any test to detect insulin overdose as cause of hypoglycaemia?...
Dear lybrate-user, low sugar or hypoglycemia is defined as blood sugar less than 72 mg% it is mainly diagnosed based on symptoms of low sugar. Brain use glucose only as it's food so when sugar goes low brain definitely feels hurt! palpitation, shakiness of hands, sweating and giddiness or sleepiness followed by coma or unconsciousness is a sequence of symptoms seen with progressive low sugar. We routinely never ask for serum insulin levels to diagnose hypoglycemia. Hope this helps you.

you should be avoid bad habits . Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Tests every 3 to 6 months.

If i am  diagnosed with pre-diabetes can you eat right and exercise enough for it to go away?
Eating right and exercise along with positive life style changes is fundamental to management of pre-diabetes, but may not be enough. A more comprehesive approach involves specific treatment to improve insulin sensitivity and balancing of metabolic parameters that includes homones and vitamin optimization.

What is the perfect treatment for diabetes? How to control it? Maximum Indian are diabetics patient here. Thank you.
Dear Mr Rohit.....You must have heard the saying PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE....That proverb is exactly related to Diabetes.Once you are diagnosed with diabetes then be sure to maintain a carbohydrate-less diet and take medicines for the rest of life....If you can maintain your diet and walk for at least 1 hour a day then may be your blood sugar level normal, but it will always tend to rise....If you are suffering from diabetes then your first priority should be not to higher your blood sugar level.....If your blood sugar level gets rising continously then you may turn into an INSULIN DEPENDANT DIABETIC patient.....in that case you have to take Insulin hormane daily from external means.....So, I would advise to maintain a carbohydrate-less diet and a walk for 1 hour daily in case you are diagnosed with diabetes

Diabetes affects all organs in the body – Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient and doctor should be in constant touch for regular follow up and advice. The common symptoms are:-Both types of diabetes have some of the same tell-tale warning signs. Hunger and fatigue. Your body converts the food you eat into glucose that your cells use for energy. But your cells need insulin to bring the glucose in. If your body doesn't make enough or any insulin, or if your cells resist the insulin your body makes, the glucose can't get into them and you have no energy. This can make you more hungry and tired than usual. Urinating more often and being thirstier. The average person usually has to pee between four and seven times in 24 hours, but people with diabetes may go a lot more. Dry mouth and itchy skin. Because your body is using fluids to make pee, there's less moisture for other things. You could get dehydrated, and your mouth may feel dry. Dry skin can make you itchy. Blurred vision. Changing fluid levels in your body could make the lenses in your eyes swell up. They change shape and lose their ability to focus. 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 diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness 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. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch personally.

constipation problem is very common in patients with diabetes. he should increase fibre content in diet, drink lot of water, yoghurt. he can also take laxatives at bedtime as per your doctor. Novomix 30 is 12 hr insulin. for optimum sugar control timing of insulin is also important. for example suppose you take novomix 30 at 8.00am in morning so it's action ends by evening 8.00 pm if you measure sugars after 8.00 pm then it will be high. so you need to take 2nd shot of insulin by 8.00pm. you can take novomix 30 just 5 mins before meal. hope this helps

HbA1c% 7 means confirmed diabetes. If a person has confirmed diabetes, then proper treatment with anti-diabetic drugs is a must. Diabetes is a preventable disease, but only in pre-diabetes stage. Once it develops, then treatment with appropriate drugs plus diet control and exercise are required. There absolutely no other option. Dry fruits can be eaten but not date and resins. 5 to 8 almonds a day a few pieces of walnuts can be taken. At the most a single date may be taken and about a few resins, that too with excellent blood glucose control. Thanks.

How to Have Better Sex With Diabetes

MBBS
Sexologist, Jaipur
How to Have Better Sex With Diabetes

Diabetes has always been a mysterious home to many diseases. It reduces quality of erection. However, there are ways you can enhance your love life, by involving some strategies, such as: 

  1. Approach sex like exercise: This helps prevent dreaded blood sugar lows.If you use insulin, check your blood sugar before sex and have a snack if it's low.
  2. Just go with it: Planning can be helpful, but don't sweat it if sex just happens.There's no reason not to grab the opportunity if it pops up just because you haven't followed your diabetes exercise routine.
  3. Use a lubricant: If you are a woman with vaginal dryness, a vaginal lubricant can make sex feel better. Ask your doctor about using one regularly, not just during sex.
  4. Prepare a sex arsenal kit: Keep anything you might need for optimal sex next to the bed.If you're a woman, you may want to have a lubricant in your kit. Feel free to include massage oils.
  5. Get a room: Treat yourself and your partner to a night at a local hotel.It's a great libido enhancer.Plan it days in advance.It's planning, but it's planning something fun.
  6. Get in some practice: If you are a man who uses a device like a vacuum pump or constriction band to help with erectile dysfunction, take time to learn how to use it right.
  7. Creativity is sexy: If you have trouble getting aroused, stretch beyond your go-to bedroom moves. Try out new positions. Explore different ways to climax. Most women don't climax from intercourse alone, anyway. Some men can have an orgasm from prostate stimulation.
  8. Limit alcohol: A little alcohol may boost your desire, but drinking can also make your blood sugar level drop quickly. If you drink alcohol, you might sip some champagne during intimacy.
  9. Get help for emotional issues: Depression, anxiety, poor self-image, and other emotional concerns can hurt your sex life. And if you have a partner, sex troubles can put stress on your relationship.
  10. Relax: How you feel about your diabetes can set the stage for sex. With diabetes, you have to expect the unexpected.

You can think of a formula in your mind for better,increased, steamier sex life.

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.
