yes but if you are not diabetic then nothing to worry about. it is always better to consume fresh fruit instead of juice as it lacks fiber.

Healthy Diet Tips For Diabetes!

Healthy Diet Tips For Diabetes!

Healthy diabetes diet tips

Try these tips to eat healthier and help manage your diabetes better:

Know your five food groups. Your daily focus needs to be on making sure you’re getting the right types of foods. What does a healthy diabetes diet look like? for starters, it offers lots of variety. There isn’t one perfect food that can provide all of the nutrients the body needs. Follow a diet that emphasizes healthy foods for diabetes from these five food groups:

  • Vegetables
  • Whole grains
  • Fruits
  • Low-fat or fat-free dairy products
  • Lean protein sources such as chicken, fish, and lean beef
  • Although you can indulge in other foods on occasion, these food groups are the building blocks of a healthy diabetes diet.

Have a meal plan. Taking the time to draw up a meal plan can save you time and stress in the long run. Jan elsten, rd, cde, a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator at indiana university health-ball memorial hospital in muncie, says the first step to healthy eating for diabetes is planning to eat at least three meals a day, spaced four to six hours apart. This is sometimes easier said than done, but eating meals on a schedule can help keep your blood sugar levels where they need to be.

Get comfortable counting carbs. Your doctor or diabetes educator can work with you to create a diabetes meal plan to make sure you’re getting the correct balance of carbs (as well as protein and fiber) at each meal. “carbohydrates affect your blood sugar quicker than protein and fats do" elsten explains" they’re broken down to glucose and used by the body for energy, and the body needs foods with carbohydrates throughout the day.” however, too many carbs at one time could cause a spike in blood sugar, so you want to spread carbs evenly throughout your day. Carbs are in many different types of foods: whole grains, fruits, and low-fat or fat-free milk and yogurt are healthy options. Soda, candy, and sweets also have carbs, but offer very little nutritional value, so they should be eaten in moderation.

Build a better plate. Make sure that you not only have the right kinds of food on your plate at each meal, but also have them in the right proportions. The american diabetes association recommends drawing an imaginary line down the center of your lunch or dinner plate and filling one half with non-starchy vegetables such as spinach, carrots, broccoli, and tomatoes. Next, draw another imaginary line through the other half of your plate and fill one section with a high-quality starch such as a whole-grain roll, pasta, or brown rice. In the remaining section, add a lean protein such as fish, beans, eggs, or a meat substitute. Add an 8-ounce glass of low-fat or fat-free milk and a small piece of fruit to complete your meal. Apply the same concept at breakfast, using a smaller plate or bowl.

Learn the fine points about foods. You don’t have to know everything about every food, but get a grasp of the big picture. For example, foods high in saturated fats, like butter and fatty meats, can lead to heart disease, while foods with fatty acids called omega-3s, like coldwater fish and healthy oils and nuts, can help reduce the risk of heart disease. Foods with high salt (sodium) content — which is often most processed foods — can raise blood pressure, while potassium-rich foods, such as spinach, tomatoes, and bananas, can counteract sodium in the body and help reduce high blood pressure.

Healthy diabetes cooking tips

Ready to take these diabetes diet tips to the next level? making healthy substitutions and slight modifications to how you cook can mean the difference between successfully managed diabetes and wildly fluctuating blood sugar levels. Try gradually implementing these changes for healthier eating for diabetes:

What to drink:

Replace sweetened drinks with water or no-calorie beverages.
Limit 100-percent fruit juice to one 4-ounce serving a day. Or instead of fruit juice, consider tomato or vegetable juice.
What to eat:

  • Substitute crisp, non-starchy vegetables such as sweet peppers, celery, and carrots for empty snacks like chips and pretzels. This will also help increase your veggie intake to at least 3 cups a day.
  • Buy lean cuts of beef such as sirloin instead of marbled cuts like rib eye, and try ground turkey instead of ground beef when making tacos, chili, or burgers.
  • Use low-fat or fat-free dairy products instead of full-fat varieties.
  • Substitute greek yogurt in place of sour cream for a rich, creamy taste with more protein and calcium.
  • Enjoy frozen yogurt instead of ice cream to satisfy your sweet tooth.

How to prepare food:

  • Limit fried foods and instead use healthy diabetes cooking methods such as baking, grilling, and broiling.
  • Reduce sodium by rinsing canned vegetables with cold water before cooking.
  • Boost the flavor of veggies, fish, and pasta with fresh lemon juice instead of butter and salt.
  • Use non-stick cooking sprays instead of butter and even healthy oils when cooking.
  • Pay attention to portion sizes — keep the measuring cups handy to be sure.
  • By taking these simple steps toward a diabetes-friendly diet, you can gain better control of what and how you eat. In turn, you’ll improve how well you manage diabetes and protect your overall health as well.

Since brandy is not a medicine, it cannot be advised as a good solution for diabetes. It is more of a personal choice . So you can take it if you wish to, but the general rule is to maintain discipline ( also regarding overall lifestyle ) in daily routine. A healthy lifestyle with everyday session of Yoga can be the best option to bounce back to normal health and keep diabetes in good control and avoid all the complications in future.

What are safe sugar levels for men above 75 yrs. Besides diet and exercise what regular medicine or natural products are useful in controlling sugar levels?

What are safe sugar levels for men above 75 yrs. Besides diet and exercise what regular medicine or natural products ...
Thanks for the query. With regard to blood glucose levels, there is no difference with age. Normal level is 70 to 110 mg on fasting and after food (after 2 hours ), <140 mg. Taking a properly balanced diet, avoiding junk foods, pastries, bakery items and food made from maida, is essential. Consuming more of green leafy vegetables and fruits is good. Plus regular physical activity like walking for about an hour a day. Medicines are to be taken if there is diabetes. The choice of medicines depends upon the level of blood glucose.

Hi I can understand that weight gain is a big problem now a day. The main reason behind weight gain is eating more of the processed food, less of exercise and drinking less water. You observe the habit of yours, you will find that these three reasons. Hence to lose weight cutting on processed food, sugary food, drinking 3-4 liter of water daily and exercise for min of 30 min per day is essential. Balanced food is the key to long term weight loss. I can suggest a diet plan and some dietary supplement for quick weight loss. I am suggesting a general diet and supplement for you. You can visit my clinic for free detailed body composition analysis. Sample Diet Plan Breakfast – green Juice. Lunch – vegetable pulao with pineapple fruits. Dinner – paneer with green salad. Snacks – 25g almonds with green tea. Suggested supplement Microfruit tab after breakfast Cytofresh tab after breakfast Lipolyzer tummy tab after lunch Lipolyzer hips and thigh tab after lunch.

Pumpkin Extract Beneficial for Diabetic Patients

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Pumpkin extract has insulin–like effects. It can help people with diabetes keep their blood sugar under control.

Quoting Chinese researchers that animals with drug–induced diabetes treated with pumpkin extract had lower blood glucose levels, greater insulin secretion, and more insulin–producing beta cells than diabetic rats that weren’t given the extract. This action may be due to the presence of both antioxidants and D–chiro–inositol, a molecule that mediates insulin activity.

Pumpkin extract is potentially a very good product for pre–diabetic persons, as well as those who have already developed diabetes.

Pumpkin is frequently used to treat diabetes and high blood glucose in Asia.

high cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Hi as long as sugar levels are within limits then its ok, how ever your father's post food sugar levels are very high. He has to have strict control on diet and do meticulous walking/exercise to keep the sugar levels in control. He can try this for 2 months and recheck the sugar levels and hba1c values. If they are normal continue the above advice, if not consult the doctor who can treat diabetes. Wish your father good health

Understanding Thyroid Problems in Women: Did You Get the Test Done?

Understanding Thyroid Problems in Women: Did You Get the Test Done?

Do you feel extremely tired many times in a day? Are you experiencing sudden weight gain, chills at night and hair loss? Is your neck a bit bloated up? If you are experiencing any of the mentioned symptoms, it might be that your body regulator- Thyroid- is unbalanced. Quick 3 tests can help you detect any abnormality - TSH, T3 and T4. Women were three times more likely to be affected by thyroid dysfunction than men. 1 in 10 adults in India suffers from hypothyroidism, with 50 per cent being women.

What is the thyroid gland?
The thyroid is a butterfly shaped gland in the front of the neck. It produces hormones that control the speed of your metabolism - the system that helps the body use energy. Thyroid disorders can slow down or rev up your metabolism by disrupting the production of thyroid hormones. When hormone levels become too low or too high, you may experience a wide range of symptoms.

What are the Symptoms?
Thyroid can be of 2 types - Hyper (Overactive) and Hypo (Underactive) Thyroid.

Low and Underactive Thyroid
High and Overactive Thyroid
Fatigue Nervousness
Dry Skin & Hair Tremors - Hand Shaking
Brittle Hair Hair loss or thinning hair
Constipation Diarrhea
Low Pulse High Pulse
Weight Gain Weight loss without trying
Intolerance to cold temperature Intolerance to hot temperature
Depression Sweatiness
Swelling in lower part of neck Swelling in lower part of neck

The swelling in the neck is a major and most significant feature. Hence one should always do the Self Neck Test.

Who should be tested?
Women aged 35 and above or those with symptoms/risk factors/family history are the right candidates for screening. It has been estimated that 75% of the people suffering from thyroid are undiagnosed.

Diagnosing thyroid disorders - A simple blood test can provide an answer. TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) levels determine thyroid hypo and hyper function as it regulates the work of thyroid gland. Rarely an imaging study or biopsy is needed. Two additional tests may be required - T3 and T4.

What happens if Thyroid remains undetected?
As Thyroid disorders are hormonal imbalances, undetection can lead to a number of secondary complications:

  • Obesity
  • High Cholesterol and Hypertension
  • Hair Fall
  • Heart Disease
  • Complications in pregnancy
