With a good diet plan you can reverse the effect of diabetes. And all foods are allowed even on diabetes. It just matters how much you eat and when you eat. There are many cases where high sugar levels are managed with diet and exercise and taken off of medicines. For a personalised diet plan you can consult with me on private chat.

THE SYMPTOMS OF TYPE 2 DIABETES

General Physician (AM)
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Chandigarh
THE SYMPTOMS OF TYPE 2 DIABETES
The symptoms of diabetes include feeling very thirsty, passing more urine than usual and feeling tired all the time.
The symptoms occur because some or all of the glucose stays in your blood and isn’t used as fuel for energy.
Your body will try to get rid of the excess glucose in your urine.
The main symptoms include:
urinating more often than usual, particularly at night

feeling very thirsty

feeling very tired

unexplained weight loss

itching around the penis or vagina, or frequent episodes of thrush

cuts or wounds that heal slowly

blurred vision (caused by the lens of the eye becoming dry)

The signs and symptoms of type 2 diabetes aren't always as obvious, and it's often diagnosed during a routine check-up.
This is because the symptoms are often mild and develop gradually over a number of years.
This means that you may have type 2 diabetes for many years without realising it.
Early diagnosis and treatment for type 2 diabetes is very important because it may reduce your risk of developing complications later on.
Visit your GP as soon as possible if you think you may have diabetes.

I would not recommend sweetners. They are artificial in nature and can play havoc with your hormones. Try to sweeten beverages with natural sweetners like cardamom mint other herbs. If taken in moderation and if your diet is balanced and planned well then as a snack (as a mid meal) any fruit is allowed.

I am 41 years old male. I have autoimmune thyroid disease from last 5 months. What to do?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Autoimmune thyroiditis can lead to reduced function of thyroid gland (hypothyroidism), in such case thyroxine hormone has to be given daily for lifetime. Tsh, t3, t4 should be tested every 6 weeks to adjust the dosage of thyroxine till it is stabilised. So you have to start on thyroxine tablets dose depending on weight and tsh levels.

lybrate-user, If your height is 165 cms, then 62 kgs weight is not high. I do not see any increase in it. Anyway, if you are on treatment for hypothyroidism, then TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, for achieving good control. If that is not done, then all the symptoms related to hypothyroidism are likely to be back, or may not go away. So please check TSH levels and make sure those are maintained as mentioned above. Then efforts to reduce weight will be successful. Thanks.

Hello lybrate-user, first line of treatment for diabetes is to avoid sugar, sweets, white rice, potato, sweet fruits and avoid sedentary lifestyle. At least 40mints of walk or 30mints exercise is must. If her diabetes is still more after avoiding sweet and doing exercise then she should consult a diabetologist.

Few details are required to give correct advise, like weight, height, waist circumference, level of physical activity every day and the dosage of medications taken. Ppg 0.2 needs to be taken with each meal with first bite. As regards the food on tour one can stick to dal roti, salads, curd and a little rice (if needed). Breakfast could be upama, 2 idlis, 1 -2 plain dosas with nil oil, and half apple or 1 orange etc. Dinner should be similar to lunch. Avoid sweets, pastries, deep fried foods, drink dilute butter milk. A glass of skimmed milk can be had at bed time.

She has got uncontrolled diabetes, and a non responding unilateral swelling in leg needs urgent attention to rule out circulatory obstruction in the leg due to diabetic complication. At times it may take a serious turn in to diabetic gangrene. Show her to a general surgeon immediately and once he clears serious reasons, then a diabetologist should prescribe her appropriately. She may need a colour Doppler examination of her leg.

25 year female and 4 months pregnant. Vaginal bleeding since 2months. Fasting and ppbs sugar levels are 83, 99 resp. But gtt values are 170, 164, 120, 99 each taken at half an hour intervals. 15th week scan said placenta is 2cm above os. Does my sugar level variation cause vaginal bleeding or is it due to low lying placenta? please help me soon. I am worried.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
You have impaired glucose test. You check your thyroid profile also. Placenta is not too risky as per the report. 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 touchly,

11 Good Shortcuts Towards Avoiding Diabetes Complications

MD - Alternative Medicine
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Mumbai
11 Good Shortcuts Towards Avoiding Diabetes Complications

Diabetes occurs in all age groups, right from infants to the elderly. The greatest incidence of occurrences happen in the middle or older aged people. 80-85% cases belong to people of 45 years of age or older. Whatever be your age, there are a few lifestyle changes that ensure that you stay free of any complications.

1. Select Your Carbs Carefully - Choose carbohydrates that break down in the body slowly, providing steady energy. Reach for whole grains, beans, nuts, and fresh vegetables and fruits. Yes, you can eat fruit even though it's sweet. It's about eating the right amounts of carbohydrates at each meal.

2. Lose Weight - It'll help lower your blood sugar and improve your blood pressure and blood fats. You'll also have more energy. To begin with, try cutting excess fat, sugar, and calories from your diet.

3. Get Enough Sleep - Getting too much or too little sleep can increase your appetite and cravings for high-carb foods. That can lead to weight gain, increasing your risk for complications such as heart disease. Go for 7 or 8 hours of sleep every night. If you have sleep apnea, treating it can improve your sleep and lower your blood sugar levels.

4. Check Your Blood Sugar Periodically - Keep a track of your sugar levels can help you avoid diabetes complications, like nerve pain, or keep them from getting worse. Checking it can also help you see how foods and activities affect you, Your doctor can help you set a target glucose level range. The closer you get to your target, the better you'll feel.

5. Manage the Stress Effectively - Stress can cause your blood glucose levels to rise. Get rid of whatever physical or mental stress you have. Relaxation techniques such as breathing exercises, yoga, and meditation may be effective to control type 2 diabetes.

6. Salt - Reduce the salt in your diet. It may help lower blood pressure and protect your kidneys. Not salting the food on your plate may not be enough.

Adults age 51 and older, and individuals with high blood pressure, diabetes, or chronic kidney disease should talk with their doctor about how much to reduce their sodium intake. In general, people with diabetes should decrease to less than 2,300 mgs per day, however, your doctor may recommend lower amounts.

7. Remove the Risk of Heart Disease - Heart disease can be a serious diabetes complication. Keep an eye on your risk by getting these ABCs checked:

A1C level. This is a measure of your average blood sugar control for the last 2-3 months. You may need it checked two or more times a year. Talk to your doctor about setting a goal.

Blood pressure. Goal: below 140/80 mm Hg.
Cholesterol. Goal: LDL to 100 mg/d or less; HDL above 40 mg/dl in men and greater than 50 in women; and triglycerides below 150 mg/dl.

8. Take Care of Cuts and Wounds - Diabetes raises your risk of infection and slows healing, so treat even simple cuts and scrapes quickly. Properly clean your wound and use an antibiotic cream and sterile bandage. See a doctor if it's not better in a few days. Check your feet every day for blisters, cuts, sores, redness, or swelling. Moisturize them to prevent cracks.

9. Mind Your Smoking Habit - People with diabetes who smoke are two times more likely to die prematurely than those who don't. Quitting helps your heart and lungs. It lowers your blood pressure and risk of stroke, heart attack, nerve damage, and kidney disease.

10. Get Your Diet Right! - Here's what is ideal:

  • Upon Waking : Bitter Gourd (karela) juice, and a glass of lukewarm water with half a freshly - squeezed lime.
  • Breakfast: Any fresh fruit with the exception of bananas. A small quantity of wholemeal bread with butter and fresh milk.
  • Lunch: A bowl of freshly prepared steamed vegetable, one or two whole wheat chapattis, and a glass of buttermilk.
  • Mid-afternoon: A glass of fresh fruit or vegetable juice
  • Dinner: A large bowl of raw vegetable salad, with lime juice dressing, sprouted mung beans, and cottage cheese.
  • Bedtime snack: A glass of fresh milk or fresh fruit

11. Doctor Visits - Expect to see your doctor two to four times a year. If you take insulin or need help balancing your blood sugar levels, you may need to visit more often. Also, get a yearly physical and eye exam. You should be screened for eye, nerve, and kidney damage, and other complications. See a dentist twice a year.

Other Measures:

  • Exercise and yogic asanas. And Meditation
  • Body massage and steam bath once a week
  • Hot fomentation to lower back.

And be sure to tell all healthcare providers that you have diabetes.

'Consult'.

How to keep the blood sugar in normal without medicine.
Main problem is i'm very lazy to do exercise.
Mr. Lybrate-user, if you do not have diabetes, but if family history of diabetes is there, then you need to take precautions so as to avoid developing diabetes in future. One to avoid that is by adapting modified life style- which means taking a balanced diet, avoiding sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), avoiding highly processed food products, fructose corn syrup containing products, high fat containing milk products and red meat. Consume a good deal of green leafy vegetables and salads. Use whole grain food products than refined foods. Also refrain from alcohol and smoking. Regular exercise of at least 1 hour so as to maintain normal weight, (your bmi is 24.91 kgs/m2). If this is done then diabetes can be prevented or onset can be delayed. Thanks.

Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Tests every 3 to 6 months.
