I am Dr. Suneet Khanna. I am a clinical weight loss nutritionist in Delhi. I am a pediatrician who has transformed himself into a nutritionist. I realized much later in my life as a clinical pediatrician that nutrition is a part and parcel of India’s program. People do not know much about nutrition. I got it to nutrition and decided to get into weight loss. I am the oldest practicing weight loss clinical nutritionist in India. I am just going to talk about diabetes.
What is diabetes? It is a clinical disease waiting to happen to anybody. 380 million people in the world suffer from diabetes. Diabetes in the last 10 years has increased by 50% globally. Delhi would be the capital of diabetes in India. India would be the capital of diabetes in the world in times to come. What is diabetes? A condition where the blood sugar level goes up, you have polydipsia, polyhydria, polyhydra and hyperphagia. Urination, excessive thirst, hyperphagia, eating more are the symptoms of diabetes. Anybody who has diabetes type 1, diabetes type 2 and gestational diabetes needs to understand nutrition. He needs to understand his diabetic state will be improved if he has a good nutrition, good healthy diet, he should know certain foods to avoid like starch, potato and rice. He should also know how to improve his lifestyle.
Improvement of lifestyle, change in lifestyle is a very important feature in a patient of diabetes. Activity, his activity needs to be improved. 30 minutes of walk everyday is a good association of patients of diabetes. What happens in normal individuals when we eat food? Food is broken into sugar, suddenly our pancreas releases insulin, the hormone. The insulin hormone actually opens up the cells which take up the glucose for energy utilization. Nothing like that happens in diabetes, that’s why our sugar level goes up. I will give you a small preparation for diabetics. We call it chicken drumsticks. You can have about 150 grams of chicken leg, which is one piece. It has about 140 calories. Lets say three chicken drumsticks or three chicken legs, you can marinate them in hung curd with some olive oil, add some herbs, salt, pepper, you can put that for about 45 minutes and after 45 minutes of smearing the entire stuff on to the chicken legs, three of them, put them on a pan and stir fry them for little while. The chicken gets good very well. This amounts to about 350-400 calories if you serve it with sautéed vegetables like broccoli, celery, asparagus, babycorn, bellpeppers and pokchow which should be more than a soup bowl. This dish is very good for diabetics.
We should understand as people that diabetics are prone to more complications. If we control our diabetes, we will be able to do best in life. If anybody wants to contact me for his or her problems associated with weight loss or diabetes, you can consult me on Lybrate or on my contact number 9810152166.type 1 diabetes

Diabulimia is an eating disorder often associated with Type-1 Diabetes. Also referred to as ED-DMT1, not many people are aware of this non-clinical term. It is a well known fact that many people with Type-1 diabetes require the daily administration of insulin. In the case of Diabulimia, a person having Type-1 diabetes purposely manipulates with the insulin dosage in an endeavour to lose weight. In some extreme cases, a person may completely avoid the use of insulin.
You need no rocket science to understand the impact diabulimia will have on a diabetic patient (Type-1) who is entirely dependent on insulin. Some of the lethal consequences of diabulimia include
- Yeast infections: Manipulating with the appropriate dosage of insulin can trigger an abnormal rise in the blood glucose level (Hyperglycemia), some of which gets eliminated out through the urine, thereby enabling a person to lose weight. However, the high glucose level is just the ideal and favorable condition for yeast growth. The hyperglycemic condition will result in increased yeast infections. The infection can be very uncomfortable and annoying. In fact, there will be repeated yeast infections until the blood glucose level comes down to the normal range.
- Ketoacidosis: As already mentioned, diabulimia devoids the body of insulin. As a result, glucose is unable to enter the body cells (glucose is an important fuel for the muscles and the other cells and tissues of the body). In its absence, the body starts looking for alternate sources. Gradually the body starts breaking down fats to get the desired energy. Increased breakdown of fats results in accumulation of ketone bodies in the bloodstream, a condition medically termed as Ketoacidosis or Diabetic Ketoacidosis. The condition if left untreated can be harmful triggering Cerebral Edema (a condition characterized by a swelling of the brain), Hypokalemia (low potassium level) or even Hypoglycemia.
- Diabetic retinopathy: Hyperglycemia can spell doom for your eyes. The accumulation and buildup of high levels of glucose in the eyes often damage the retinal blood vessels, a condition known as Diabetic Retinopathy. There may not be any early signs associated with the condition. However, diabetic retinopathy can give rise to many serious complications such as Glaucoma (characterized by severe damage to the optic nerve), Vitreous Hemorrhage (the blood leaks into the areas adjacent to the vitreous humor of the eye), or even Blindness. There may also be a Retinal Detachment.
- Renal failure: One of the common and harmful consequences of diabulimia is the kidney failure. Increased concentration of glucose in the kidneys often damages the filtration units of the kidneys called the Glomeruli (increased glucose blocks the capillaries of the kidney) leading to kidney damage and failure.
