Your blood sugar levels suggest that you are diabetic. 1. Avoid sweets and oily and fried food. 2. Cut down weight if overweight, 3. Exercise regularly. 4. Avoid smoking and alcohol. Get your sugar checked after 1 month. If it is still high you need medical treatment.

Diabetes is one of the fast growing lifestyle disorder that can be effectively managed with few lifestyle modifications and eating a healthy diet. Characterized by high blood sugar levels in the body, this condition affects the body’s ability to either produce insulin or to use insulin effectively. Although there are numerous treatment options available to keep your blood sugar levels in control, home remedies can work wonders in achieving this task. Here are top 10 effective home remedies to maintain your blood sugar levels and lead a healthy life with diabetes.
#1 Holy Basil (tulsi) leaves
The leaves of holy basil are packed with antioxidants and essential oils that produce eugenol, methyl eugenol and caryophyllene. Collectively these compounds help the pancreatic beta cells (cells that store and release insulin) to function properly and increase sensitivity to insulin. An added advantage is that the antioxidants present in the leaves help beat the ill effects of oxidative stress.
Tip: Consume two to three tulsi leaves whole or about one tablespoon full of its juice on an empty stomach to lower the blood sugar levels. Here are top 10 health benefits of tulsi
#2 Flax seeds (Alsi)
Due to their high fibre content flaxseeds help digestion and aid in the proper absorption of fats and sugars. Consuming flax seed helps reduce a diabetic’s postprandial sugar level by almost 28 per cent.
Tip: Consume one tablespoon of ground flaxseed powder every morning on an empty stomach with a glass of warm water. However, do not have more than 2 tablespoons per day, as it can be detrimental to your health. Here are 11 ways to include flaxseeds in your diet.
#3 Leaves of bilberry (neelabadari) plant
The leaves of bilberry have been used in Ayurveda for many centuries to control diabetes. Recently, the Journal of Nutrition stated that the leaves of the Bilberry plant contain high amounts of anthocyanidin, which enhance the action of various proteins involved in glucose transportation and fat metabolism. Due to this unique property, bilberry leaves are a great way to lower one’s blood sugar levels.
Tip: Crush bilberry leaves in a mortar and pestle and consume 100 milligrams of this extract everyday on an empty stomach.
#4 Cinnamon (dalchini)
Also known as dalchini, it improves insulin sensitivity and lower blood glucose levels. Having as little as ½ teaspoon of cinnamon per day can improve one’s insulin sensitivity and help controlling weight, thereby decreasing one’s risk for heart disease.
Tip: Include about 1 gram of dalchini into your daily diet for about a month to help lower blood sugar levels. Read more health benefits of cinnamon.
#5 Green Tea
Unlike other tea leaves, green tea is unfermented and is high in polyphenol content. Polyphenol is a strong antioxidant and hypo-glycaemic compound that helps control the release of blood sugars and helps the body use insulin better. Read more 10 types of flavoured green tea that have 20 health benefits.
Tip: Steep a bag of green tea in hot water for 2-3 minutes. Remove the bag and drink a cup of this tea in the morning or before your meals.
#6 Drumstick leaves
Also called moringa, the leaves of this plant are best known for their ability to boost one’s energy. In the case of diabetics, the moringa leaf increases satiety and slows the breakdown of food and lower blood pressure.
Tip: Take a few drumstick leaves, wash and crush them to extract their juice. Now take about 1/4th cup of this juice and drink it on an empty stomach, every morning to keep your sugar levels under control.
#7 Psyllium husk (Isabgol)
Also known as psyllium husk is often used as a laxative. When isabgol comes in contact with water, it swells to form a gel-like substance. This slows the breakdown and absorption of blood glucose. Isabgol also protects the stomach lining from ulcers and acidity.
Tip: Cosume isabgol after every meal, ideally with milk or water. Avoid having it with curd as it can lead to constipation. For homoeopathic treatment give detailed history - Dr Rushali Angchekar

Hi. Sir. My dad has a diabetes since last two month what to do decreases the diabetes. And what to eat.

MBBS, MD, CCEBDM(diabetology), CCMTD(thyroid dissorders)
General Physician,
Hi. Sir. My dad has a diabetes since last two month what to do decreases the diabetes. And what to eat.
For type 2 dm I can sugest you following dietary instructions 1. Do not take simple sugars like sugar, glucose, sweet fruits, sweet beverages, simply anything which is frankly sweet 2. Take a mixed oil diet which should include arachis oil, rice bran oil, saflower oil etc 3. You can take complex carbohydrates 4. Protein content should be normal etc in brief, take small &frequent meals (4hrly), take less rice or replace it with wheat, stop taking sugar, take poly unsaturated fatty acid (pufa) containing oil, and along with moderate excercise and proper medications. Diabetes is chronic disease and it does not have a definitive cure till date. But with proper diet and routine medication and follow up many diabetics have been able to live a normal and healthy life. Thank you.

Increase the calories in your diet while watching your carbohydrate intake. Gaining weight is simply a matter of eating more calories than you burn, but having diabetes complicates the equation because it's not safe for diabetics to eat whatever foods they want. Recommends limiting sweets like candy and chocolate, as they can spike your blood sugar levels too quickly, and instead of eating foods with refined carbohydrates like white rice, white bread and pasta, Eat more whole grains like whole wheat bread, proteins like chicken and fats like olive oil. Continue to check your blood sugar levels as often as your doctor or dietitian recommends.

Your sugar levels appear in good control with present medication that is on. The pain in heel is possibly a condition called plantar fasciaitis. For this there are few specific exercises which an orthopedician can advise you. Plus apply ice twice a day for about 10 minutes / twice a day. Also use soft foot wear (with cushuned heel) at home and outside.

Hello, If one has diabetes then it is preferable to avoid either sugar or sugar free tablets along with tea, coffe or milk. The sugar substtutes are not really safe. Their intake increases craving for sugar. They may not giving calories, but can be harmful. Thanks.

good evening, in t1 diabetes insulin is the only treatment because in those patients pancreas does not produce insulin at all. In t2 diabetes if oral drugs are not able to give adequate sugar control then insulin injections are given. Insulin is given whenever there is need for it. Age is no concern. To my knowledge ayurvedic medicines really do not help in controlling blood sugar. In case of bp they might help.
