Mr. Lybrate-user, if you have confirmed diabetes then the only option is to either take oral anti- diabetic drugs or take insulin injections or both. These drugs hardly cause any side effects. If you stop the treatment then sugar levels will go high leading to serious side effects with all the vital organs. There no home remedies for treating diabetes. Still you want stop medication choice is yours. Thanks for the question.

Weight Management for Diabetics

MBBS, M.MED, DFM, FID, CCEBDM, ACMDC, CCMTD
Diabetologist, Hyderabad
Weight Management for Diabetics

Type 2 diabetes, the type of diabetes which is common in adults, is a disease of insulin resistance, a condition in which the body produces insulin but does not use it effectively. When people have insulin resistance, glucose builds up in the blood instead of being absorbed by the cells, leading to type 2 diabetes or prediabetes. Insulin resistance is associated with excess body weight and often gives rise to metabolic syndrome, also called insulin resistance syndrome, is a group of traits and medical conditions linked to overweight and obesity that puts people at risk for both CVD and type 2 diabetes.

Losing excess body weight,therefore helps people with diabetes and prediabetes in several ways

-Weight loss results in less insulin resistance in the body so that blood sugar is better controlled
-Weight loss also results in decreased blood pressure and better blood lipid profile thus reducing the heart risk
-Weight loss results in positive changes in mood and behavior and gives a sense of control over the disease

Therefore, the guidelines, by expert agencies in diabetes care, recommend that

-Overweight/obese people should try to lose weight and get their BMI< 23; this target is suitable for people with less burden of excess weight (BMI up to ~ 25)
-For people who are morbidly obese (BMI greater than 27.5 or more in people of Indian subcontinent), initial target is to lose 5-10% of body weight within six months to year
-Gradual weight loss is recommended, for which a moderate calorie restriction of 500 calories is advised, but in severely obese people a calorie restriction of up to 1000 calories
-The radically restrictive diets such as low carb, low fat, Atkins etc. have not been found to be superior for either weight loss or sugar/cholesterol control over other diets
-Adherence to the calorie restricted diet is single most important factor for weight loss maintenance
-Recommended level of exercise for all adults (150 minutes/week of moderate-intensity exercise and 2-3 sessions of resistance exercise/week) help in greater weight loss when combined with a dietary calorie restriction of 500 calorie/day. But, for exercise alone to produce weight loss, 225-400 minutes of moderate intensity exercise is needed
-Drugs or surgery for weight loss may help in people with higher BMI (greater than 27.5 for drugs and greater than 32.5 for weight loss surgery), if you fall in these groups, you should discuss the use of these measures with your doctor

Thus, if you are diabetic or prediabetic and are overweight, you should get into a weight loss program to reduce your health risk.

I am 48 years old. I am facing a problem of diabetes since 1 year. Please advise me about my diet.
For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise.

Hi lybrate-user, this is a very good question because everyone should know about diabetes. Diabetes is not a disease. Its is only a metabolic change in human being this can lead diabetes and this is called as life style changes in human beings. Diabetes is many types. Type 1 diabetes. Its occur only in children due to no secreting of insulin in the body. Type 2 diabetes. Its occur mainly in adults due to no secretion of insulin or produce insufficient amount of insulin from beta cell of pancreas. Other type of diabetes is occur in mainly in pregnancy.

Initially get your blood sugar tested in a reputed pathology / clinical laboratory at fasting, 2 hours after morning principal meal and before dinner, if possible hb a1c test then meet a good consultant physician or a diabetologist for further management, advice, follow up, monitoring and review as advised by doctor. Follow diet, exercise and medication as advised regularly. Remember there is no known scientific cure for diabetes but it can easily be kept under control which is a must.

Mr Vinay, By consuming sweets or sugar a person does not get diabetes. However, if you have a family history of diabetes and have excess weight, central obesity (waist more than 90 cms), having an inactive lifestyle, also habituated to alcohol or smoking, then there is a possibility of getting diabetes type 2. So if you any of the above things it is better to be cautious. To keep free from T2DM, adapt a healthy lifestyle.

I am having Type 2 diabetes from the last one year. Sugar consumption is prohibited in diabetic people. Is consumption of jaggery (gud) also prohibited? Fruits also contains sugar.

Mr. lybrate-user, Sugar and jaggery are both made form cane sugar juice. So there is hardly any difference between those two. Jaggeruy is supposed to contain some more minerals and vitamins. But both are sucrose, which is immediately converted to glucose in the body increasing the blood glucose almost instantly. Various types of food that we eat like rice, roti, chapati, potato, sweet potato, corn and many other food stuffs all contain starch, this is ultimately converted to glucose in the intestine. However, it takes over 3 to 4 hours for this process to be completed. So the blood glucose rise is comparatively slow. Even with most fruits the main sugar is fructose, it is different from glucose. Certain fruits are high in sugar like banana, mango, grapes & chikkoo. Those should be eaten very occasionally or just a small piece. Thanks.
