My father is suffered by diabetes
He wants to know the fruits to eat and the fruits to avoid.
Most fruits have a low glycemic index (gi) because of their fructose and fiber content. Melons and pineapple have medium gi values as do some dried fruits such as dates, raisins, and sweetened cranberries. So avoid all these and eat all other fruits.

My mother is a diabetic and she got affected from it since 2-3 months. She use to take sugar free with tea and some juices but some people forbade her to take the same and told that sugar free affects and damages heart. So whether she should stop consuming sugar free or continue it as usual?

Stop sugar free and juices also as they can raise levels of blood sugar rapidly compared to whole fruits plus fruits give benefits of fiber also. Develop a sugar free taste. Difficult but not impossible.

My fasting blood sugar is 89. Is it normal?

DNB (General Medicine), MBBS
Cardiologist,
My fasting blood sugar is 89. Is it normal?
Fasting blood sugar level higher than 126mg/dl is criteria to diagnose diabetes. Singular level higher than 126 doesn't qualify anyone as diabetic. Need to have second check of fasting blood sugar or corroborative high levels of random or glycosylated hemoglobin. You are safe at 89:-)

Hello Mr. Lybrate user. It's good that you have controlled diabetes since 7 years But with information provided you have lost significant amount of weight I personally feel it's not due to diabetes it can be due to either poor nutrition or some chronic infectious disease Get your CBC ESR AND CHEST x ray done Till then just start taking D- protein two tea spoon in glass of milk after walking You can contact me once your reports comes.

I have hyperthyroidism I'm using thyronorm 50 mcg tablets but there is no improvement in my weight gain I'm under weight. What should i do?

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
lybrate-user, If you are on thyroxine tablets (50 mcg), means you have hypothyroidism. It would be better if you had given total results of thyroid assay. Usually hypothyroidism leads to increased weight. Hyperthyroidism can cause weight loss. But the treatment is anti-thyroid drugs. Thanks.

Hello dear High triglycerides and 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.

During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication .

Parkinsons disease is a neuro degenerative disease. Unfortunately there is no permanent treatment for this condition. For initial symptom relief doctors give anticholinergics, antihistaminics, but latter dopamine agonists or dopamine precursures (levodopa) is needed. I your case, it appears to be an early onset and already advanced case of parkinsonism which is associates with high grade dementia, rigidity, tremour, inability to walk. In this condition levodopa+carbidopa/benserazide-. 4-. 8g/day or ropinirole or pramiprexole might be needed. Along with that, regular physiotherapy will help a bit. Proper nurshing care may be needed. Thank you. Take care.

MD - Internal Medicine

Hi, thanks for posting your query. Well yes you can control your sugars with exercise. But know one thing you are on quiet a high dose medication for diabetes so don't except that only with exercise you can control blood sugars and avoid taking medication. With exercise you requirement for medication comes down and still you will require some medication. Best exercise are brisk walking and jogging but since you have limitations doing it, you can try cycling or stepper exercise. Also to some extent upper body exercise like weight lifting etc.
