I have diabetes what to eat or not?

Endocrinologist,
I have diabetes what to eat or not?
A diabetic patient can eat same type of foods like others. But certain precautions should be taken like - diet should be restricted to meet the caloric need, which has to be calculated based on ideal body weight (ibw = height in centimeters - 100 x 0.9 = kgs) caloric requirement will also depend upon amount of physical exercise or activity one does in a day. 25 kcal/kg/d, for mild exercise, 30 kcal /kg/d for moderate exercise and 35 kcal/kg/d for vigerous exercise. Plus avoid deep fried foods, sweets and direct sugar and processed foods. Use whole grain flours. Eat more green salads.

I am 58 and last year diagnosed to be diabetic. I am taking Glycomet GP 0.5 and Felicitations OD, both one tab daily. Should I take these medicines for whole life or should I stop these after sugar level is maintained under control limits? Almost daily I go on walk and take almost controlled diet.

It is important to keep HbA1c <7%. This should be tested 3 monthly. If it is less than &% you can try reducing your medicines after consulting the doctor. Yes it is possible for some people to stop medicines if their blood glucose control is good. Fasting glucose should preferably be <110 mg/dl and 2h post meal glucose should be preferably <160 mg/dl.

Priyaji, One of the main symptoms is weight gain, others are dry skin, hair fall, weakness, tired feeling, slow heart rate, intolerance to cold, swelling of face and lower limbs, difficulty in speech, inability to concentrate, menstrual irregularities and depression. Best is to get a thyroid assay done, which help in finding out if there ia any problem.

I am 32 years old I have been problem of my uric acid increase. Please advise.

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
uric acid causes A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills) Drinking too much alcohol Genetics (inherited tendencies) Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) Immune-suppressing drugs Niacin, or vitamin B-3 Obesity Psoriasis Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, dried peas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer.

Mr Naveen, If sugar levels are normal and still your ED is persisting, then it is unlikely to be completely cured. ED occurs in diabetes as a consequence of microvascular damage due to high blood glucose. Damage once done will not be retraced. You have good sugar control now but earlier effect will continue.

Increased frequency of urination, excessive thirst, increased appetite, decrease in weight, weakness delayed healing of wounds are some of the symptoms of diabetes. Half the cases there are no symptoms at all and diabetes is detected accidentally. Getting fasting and 1 1/2 hours after food sugar reports periodically is the simplest method.

Lybrate-user, if any one has hypothyroidism, then only way to treat it is to take thyroxine hormone as a replacement. The condition occurs due to deficiency of thyroxine hormone produced by thyroid gland. This hormone is required for development and functioning of brain on day to day basis. Plus it is necessary for multiple metabolic activities in the body. If not provided (as tablets of thyroxine) then considerable problems occur including weight gain, slow heart rate, tired feeling, early fatigue, lack of interest, dry hair, dry skin and hair fall, difficulty in speech, inability to concentrate, swelling of face and lower limbs, irregular periods and excess flow, irritability, anxiety and depression. Only remedy for this is taking thyroixine tablets for life time. There are no other options. Choice is yours. Thanks.

Underweight is a term describing a person whose body weight is considered too low to be healthy. The definition usually refers to people with a body mass index (bmi) of under 18.5 a weight 15% to 20% below that normal for their age and height group. Low weight may be due to improper diet, reduced assimilation from intestine, illness, metabolism, genetics etc. Thus first we have to rule out any such condition, with this have a healthy diet with more proteins (legumes, eggs, fish, lean meat, vegetables and fruits, drink plenty of water and go for regular exercise. A homoeopathic constitutional treatment will definitely help you a lot.

hypothyroidism if well controlled with thyroxine tablets, will have no bad effect on pregnancy. So if your tsh levels have come back to normal with treatment then you can think of conceiving. Pregnancy should be normal.

Hye, thanks for the query. 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 - the sugar levels will fluctuate depending on what you ate or did not eat, stress levels and activity levels. You have to try and manage a balanced carb intake. Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. You have to eat 3 main and 3 mid meals. Your diet must include whole grains, seasonal fruits, vegetables, small amounts of nuts and dairy and pulses or dals or lean meats like chicken or fish and egg. Starchy vegetables need to be planned into the diet. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Avoid exercise if sugar levels are above 250 mg/dl. There are many exercises you can do even in this position. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Diabetes Health Tip
Chinese foods are worst for diabetics:


High-calorie, high fat, high-sodium, and high-carb chinese food dishes can spike blood sugar dramatically and keep it high for a while. The biggest offenders include fried entrees such as orange chicken and sweet and sour dishes, which contain breading and are served swimming in a sugary sauce.

Have this instead: if you enjoy chinese food, prepare a modified recipe at home using steamed veggies and low-sodium, low-fat condiments and flavorings. Reducing sodium can help lower blood pressure and decrease the risk of heart attacks. Skip the white rice and noodles; have brown rice or wild rice instead.

My daughter is getting head sweat, when checked her vitamin d it is deficient also she is getting hair loss in patches on her head. Her vitamin d level is 15.5 but should be 30 to 100. And her T3 is 1.76 and T4 is 7.15. And TSH is 1.39. So is this hair loss because of heat sweat and vitamin d deficiency?

Hair loss is not due to vitamind low levels or increase in sweat but it seems to be due to fungal infection of the hair follicles as baldness is in patches.

U said that the drs removed only the uterus only or also the ovaries and the tubes also. Detailed history is needed to advise properly I need to know your daily diet intake to advise you properly. Since you r a diabetic stop eating Dairy products and wheat Wheat is a gluten and the hybrid type of wheat you get now is not good for your pancreas. U need to do certain blood work also .please visit my website and get educated to eat healthy live healthy and stay healthy. I will be able to able to help you more if you come on a private chat.
