I am a 54 years old male working as a clerk with bsnl. My parents are diabetic and takes insulin two times a day. I am regularly walking for an hour not taking any sweets and taking zoryil m1 11/2 tab morning and 1 tab at night. But still my fasting sugar is 242 today how can I control my sugar level I am not having bp or cholestrol. I am 6.1" tall and my weight 90kg.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
It is not as easy 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) 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.

Doctor I am diabetic patient and under medication. Is it possible if I stop medicine and instead take care of my diet habit and go for walking everyday. Thanks.

Fellowship in Diabetes Management, MBBS
General Physician,
Its not possible. Because your body doesnt produce enough insulin to keep your blood sugar normal with diet and walking alone.

Long standing diabetes patients suffer from autonomic neuropathy. Which lead to loss of sweat in foot and lower limb area. Autonomic neuropathy is irreversible. You can apply calamine lotion and moisturiser to foot n leg to avoid drying. Antihistaminics like levocetrizine will take care of itching.

it is essential to the blood sugar near to normal levels, that is fasting around 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg, hba1c% <7. If this is achieved, then you will feel much healthier and strong. There is no separate drug required for tightening the muscles. You need to do some muscle strengthening exercise apart from walking at least 2 to 3 times a week, that will help. Increase your protein intake. Star regular jogging for 5 km or so at least 2- 3 times a week. Send all details as mentioned above plus present drugs being taken with dosage, diet pattern and extent of exercise. Then I will be able to guide.

What are the main healthy food for the sugar patient. And which food helps to produce insulin?

LCPS, BAM&S
General Physician, Pune
What are the main healthy food for the sugar patient. And which food helps to produce insulin?
In your daily diet, Methi (fwnugreek)seeds, sweet potatoes, turmeric and cinnamon have specific anti diabetes properties. Amla and cocum have indirect benefits. Have them part of your daily diet. But four items are specifically antidiabetic. 1. Rice. 2. Potatoes 3. Fried food in oil and ghee 4. Sweet. Avoid them forever. But having any one of the items once in a while is not harmful. Small amount of desi ghee with roti is good. But don't overdo anything. Eat 200 g of fruity and 100 g of leafy vegetables everyday. Find a good doctor and follow his/her advise always.

Your father's condition can be classified as pre diabetes also known as impaired glucose tolerance. He is at increased risk of developing frank diabetes. So for now life style modifications like low sugar and fat diet, daily 30-40 minute brisk exercise etc along with blood sugar check up at least every 6 months is recommended. If sugar level does not come down to normal range, prophylactic metformin regimen would be considered. Thank you.

Please tell me if you are treatment and what are the drugs. Plus also let me know fasting and pp sugar levels & hba1c level. Rbs more than 150 mg is high, better to bring it down. Headache in the morning could be due to many reasons, normally high blood sugar does not produce any obvious symptoms. What is your bp reading? please also inform me your weight, height, waist circumference and level of physical activity daily. I await the info.

Mr. lybrate-user, I do not know who has suggested whisky is good for diabetes. Alcohol in any form is bad for diabetes. It gives empty calories, does not provide any energy, damages liver, affects awareness of hypoglycemia, affects appetite, damages intestinal mucosa. I am not aware how it is useful Thanks.

Keep your fasting blood sugar below 126mg/dl and your ppbs below 180mg/dl and glycosylated hb below 6.5%. Your sexual function will improve. It can be done with medicine or insulin.

Your diabetes and thyroid seems controlled for now but the requirement keeps changing to your body needs. So keep track of your sugars atleast once a week, and tsh atleast once in 3 months to know if your current doses are optimum for you.
