My father has been recently diagnosed with diabetes. What is your advice for him?

My father has been recently diagnosed with diabetes. What is your advice for him?
Lybrate-user gadge, this is a very general query. For me to guide anyone about diabetes -- more details about the person's height, weight, bp, lipids, dietary and lifestyle habits, other blood tests, etc are required. Stick to plant based whole foods -- such as vegetables, whole grains, lentils and beans and grams and fruits. And increase the level of physical activity -- say at least 30 to 45 minutes of moderate activity per day for at least 4 to 5 days a week is what is good for him. Cut down on fats and oils, fried foods, processed foods, restaurant foods, sweets, sugared beverages. Best wishes,

Diabetes needs regular checkup and taking medication on time with diet control and exercise to keep complication away. And it has to be done as long as you live. There is no cure as yet.

Please note that it will take sufficient time and management to heal completely. As of now take apple cider vinegar which will help relieve acute pain. You can also add honey to the remedy to boost the body’s anti-inflammatory response. 1. Mix one teaspoon of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar in a glass of water. 2. Drink it two to three times daily. If you find this remedy helpful, you can increase the dosage of apple cider vinegar to up to two tablespoons.

Loose your extra weight this will not only lower your blood but also helps lowering your blood pressure, cholesterol too. Split your meals into 6 times per day and eating fair and consistent amount. No long gapes and skipping of meals. Never miss out breakfast. No overeating. Timely and balanced diet is as important as regular medicine intake to control diabetes. Complex carbohydrates and fibre should be included in diet. Do regular exercise atleast 15 minutes.

Top 5 Things All Diabetics Must Do

Top 5 Things All Diabetics Must Do
Top 5 things all diabetics must do

As you are aware, diabetes is an increasingly common problem not only in adults but with children and young people too. Preventing or delaying diabetes is possible with a few lifestyle changes. And for those who have been diagnosed with type-2 diabetes, changes in lifestyle can prove beneficial to keep it under control. This is important and should not be taken lightly as diabetes can lead to other serious health complications. There are few simple things which if done regularly can keep you safe and absolutely fine.

5 ways to combat diabetes.

1) exercise - do minimum 45 to 30 minutes of exercise like brisk walking (for people with heart ailments make sure that you have done stress test/tmt). Keep yourself physically active all the time this will help you in losing weight, controlling blood sugar, blood pressure, cholesterol. It will also improve insulin sensitivity in your body.
2) high fiber diet - include high fiber foods like fruits, vegetables, leafy vegetables, beans, nuts, seeds, and whole grains, cinnamon, green tea in your diet. This will improve your blood sugar level and also reduce your risk of developing diabetes and helps you to lose weight. Do not get into fad diets and tv commercials as they are often misleading.
3) reduce stress - tension and worry releases certain chemicals (stress hormones) which can increase your blood sugar level. Try relaxation therapy like meditation, yoga, music and soundful sleep.
4) restrict intake of alcohol - alcohol increases body weight, triglyceride (cholesterol) level and blood pressure. They may make you unaware of symptoms of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar which may be dangerous). They are empty calorie with no nutritional value. Permissible limit is 2 drinks (60ml) a day for men and 1 drink (60ml) for women, it is also not advisable to smoke.
5) regular check-ups - make sure that you regularly check your blood sugar levels and modify treatment from your diabetologist doctor (if required.) your body and your friend/ relative / colleague's body are different, so is your need of medicine for diabetes as well. What works best for them may not be right for you. So it is my sincere request is to avoid any self medication as it can be dangerous. Regularly undergo screening for early detection of diabetes complications like eye, nerve, heart, foot, kidney.

Dear lybrate user here I can give some advice regarding diet and exercise. 1. Avoid food and drink containing sugar, eg chocolate, sweets, ice creams. 2. Restrict fried foods, fast foods, paapad, potato-wada etc 3. Eat in moderation of these; chapati, rice, meat, eggs, fish, cheese, milk products. 4. Eat plenty of salads, greenleafy vegetables, fruits, pulses, clear soups. 5. Take small meals 3-4 tms a day instead of heavy one time meals. 6. Take aerobic exercises or brisk walking for abt 3-4km. 7. Avoid heavy exercises may lead to hypoglycaemia. 8. Do yoga and meditation for about 30mnts every day which enhances quality of your life.

Hello, Thanks for the query. The thyroid hormone test results do point towards presence of Hyperthyroidism. But in that condition there is an increased metabolic activity, increased heart rate, even palpitations, loss of weight, increased hunger and eating. There may be sleep disturbances, menstrual irregularities and heat intolerance. So please let me know if do yave any of these symptoms? In this communication we are supposed to give only general guide lines, no prescriptions. So if you come in a private conversation (paid consultation) then I can prescribethe necessary medications and also help in treating the condition properly. Or else, consult a local endocrinologist and initiate the treatment. Thanks.

I am 60 years old has diabetes type b for last 15 years. At the moment I have to take humalog mix 50 total 60 units to keep sugar level under control. My hba1c is 6.5. My doctor says my dose is high because insulin resistance. My body creates anti bodies to destroy the insulin. It should reduce with passage of time, however, if I reduce the dose my blood glucose level shoots up. I am following very strict diet and exercise regime. However, the insulin dose is not reducing. Can you suggest me any alternative?

In t2dm there are no antibodies produced against insulin, it is the insulin resistance that is the culprit along with improper production of insulin by beta cells of pancreas. You might a drug like metformin 500 mg twice a day in addition to insulin which would reduce insulin resistance and help insulin action. Plus your strict diet and exercising for more than 1 h a day should continue.

As a nutritiion expert, I suggest some good nutritional food and supplements. Which helps to control and cure the diabetes. 1. Ask her to regularly walk during morning hours, if she can. 2. Try to avoid white rice and heavy carbohydrates. 3. Mole powder food, wheat will keep you active without adding any carbohydrates. 4. Drink more water in a day. 2 to 3 liters. 5. Add more fruits into your diet, fruits will give vitamins and minerals which keeps the body active for long hours. 6. Add protein sources like wheat, soya, egg whites. 7. Add fish into her diet. Twice a week.
