Goodbye Diabetes !!!!!

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Ulhasnagar
Goodbye Diabetes !!!!!

You can overcome your diabetes by gaining some knowledge about what to eat and what not.

1)Completely stop consumption of sugary foods, artificial sweetness, canned juices and any other sweet preparation.

2)Start substituting your wheat flour with bajra/jowar flour/whole wheat flour to reduce your glucose intake.

3)Include a plate raw veggies before your meal to increase your fibre content as it helps to lower down your sugar levels.

4)Substitute your meals with red or brown rice instead of white rice to increase fiber.

5)Flaxseeds (not to roast) are an excellent source of fibre n omega 3 fatty acids n are known to reduce your glucose levels naturally.

6)Cinnamon tea is one of best remedies to reduce your insulin dosage as it contains chromium pincolate which diverts the glucose from the food we get to the muscle cells n must be taken after dinner.

7)Drinking of kokam water before meals (soaked in water for two hours)
Helps to bring down your sugar levels and is a natural cure for diabetes.

8)Fruits that have high glycemic index are not recommended like mango, chikkoo, custard apple etc

9)Lastly exercise for at least 50mins a day is a key to achieve good health.

For a more detailed diet chart and how to plan your menus for issues like diabetes, thyroid, anemia, obesity, gastritis, pregnancy, gastric ulcers consult privately.

You have a bmi of 27.73 kgs/m2, signifying over weight. The efforts to reduce weight will be successful if your tsh levels are between 3 to 4 milli units. So please see that first. Because unless hypothyroidism is fully controlled, weight reduction is not going to happen. Plus you have to take a restricted diet that provides calories based on ideal body weight (60 kgs), extent of daily exercise. You have to do a workout of at least 1 hour a day. Avoid too many carbs, sweets, and increase intake of proteins and low fat foods. That will help. Thanks for the question.

I am suffering from high uric acid, my age is 55 years and I am a female any advise on what foods are good or a diet? thanks.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.

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. Insulin will work better if taken in combination with diet and exercise. Medication will depend on your blood sugar level.

Ask your local doctor. He may advise you to reduce the dosages. But I feel you BP has not come down enough to warrant a reduction in dosages. If you can reduce your weight to about 59 kgs that may be the time you can think of reducing medication. But do so only after your Doctor agrees to it.

hypothyroidism is a condition that occurs because of deficiency of thyroxine hormone secreted by thyroid gland, therefore only treatment is taking thyroxine hormone for life time.

Is diabetes related with alcohol intake even if the person is physically fit and working out regularly in gym?

Is diabetes related with alcohol intake even if the person is physically fit and working out regularly in gym?
Hello, Alcohol per say, does not precipitate diabetes. But if a person with diabetes indulges in alcohol intake on regular basis in a fair amount daily or on most days of a week, it does have bad effects on glucose control. Alcohol in large quantity damages gastrointestinal mucous lining, affecting absorption of digested food and nutrients. Can cause gastritis, affect appetite, cause malnutrition, damages liver functions, gives empty calories, no energy. Patient may not able to recognise about low glucose episodes (hypoglycemia unawareness). Thanks.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hi lybrate-user, If hypothyroidism is present, then only treatment option is taking Thyroxine tablets for lifetime. There is no cure. This is a hormone deficiency disorder. Thyroxine hormone produced by thyroid gland is needed for development and day to day functioning of brain, plus for every single vital metabolic reaction that takes place in the body. So it is needed every single day. Since in hypothyroidism there is deficiency of this hormone, it has to be supplemented daily for lifetime. There is no cure for it. Thanks.

Foot Care & Eye Care In Diabetes

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Foot Care & Eye Care In Diabetes

Diabetes can wreak havoc on the eye and the foot. Proper care is necessary in order to refrain from any serious consequences. It can damage the blood vessels and the nerves of the feet resulting in numbness and permanent disability. Some of the alarming foot symptoms include bruises, cuts, cracked skin and hard spots. Some of the common measures that need to be taken for foot include checking the temperature sensation of the foot by immersing it in hot water, drying the feet gently in between the toes and using agents such as lotion, lanolin, and petroleum jelly.

Some of the other preventive measure includes cutting the nails when they are young and straight to ensure no injury to the foot takes place. It should be ensured the toe is not touched by the nail of the toe. A pumice stone can be used to get rid of the corns immediately after a bath. No medicated pads or sharp razors should be utilised to cut corns. The feet should be soaked in warm water before trimming nails.

A shoe should be put on at all times to save the feet. The shoe sole should be thoroughly checked for foreign objects such as stones and nails to ensure that the foot is not hurt. Tight shoes should be strictly avoided in order to refrain from soreness and blisters. Dry and clean socks should be put up to ensure the foot is clean. For people living in cold area, wearing thick socks should be practised. This will help the foot protect from cold. Finally, a doctor should be called in case there are any visible signs of swelling, redness, cracks, pain or sensation of burning.

Too much blood sugar can cause harm to the eye in four ways: It can cause damage to the retina, lens, optic nerve and vitreous gel. There could be serious repercussions of diabetes to the eye including low vision and complete loss of vision. Diabetes blocks the retina and is capable of cutting off the total supply of oxygen.

Some of the common symptoms of retina related problems include double vision, a pressure in one eye, problems in corner vision, flashing lights, pain in the eye, blank spots etc. A simple check up by an oculist can reveal any eye problems related to diabetes.

An ophthalmologist can treat the diabetes-related eye problem by medicine that blocks the protein responsible for fluid leakage and blood vessel growth. He can also go for laser treatment to treat macular edema. Even scatter laser treatments are also used for this purpose. If all else fails a doctor chooses to perform a procedure known as vitrectomy.

Bp is not directly related to diabetes. It often depends on what medication she is taking. Insulin may precipitate an episode of hypoglycaemia and subsequent fall in bp if taken without food.
