Mr. lybrate-user, Bullous diabeticorium as the condition is known, is a self limiting disease. Exact cause is not clear. It advised to leave the bullae intact to heal themselves. It is also a recurring condition. No treatment is needed, unless the bullae burst and infection occurs. Thanks.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I have seen the details given. It is clear that your husband has a very badly controlled diabetes. This may be due to inappropriate medication and/or excess dietary intake or not enough exercise. Ideally when diabetes is well controlled FBG should be <100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. Therefore, just giving dietary advise is not at all going to be beneficial. His whole treatment has to be looked at and needs to be altered so that blood glucose is properly controlled. So if you are keen on it, then please come in a private conversation with all the details mentioned above, then I will be able to guide specifically. Please understand strict blood glucose control is absolutely essential for having a normal complication free life. The choice is yours. Thanks.

Continue your medicine but with medicine yoga and diet will definitely help in diabetes. There are some asana and pranayam which will help you to control your blood sugar level, like 1 ardh matsyendrasana 2 purna matsyendrasana 3 vakrasana 4 kapalbhati and many more diet has key role in diabetes. Diabetic diet is different for person to person. It is depend of person lifestyle, his blood sugar level. Medication and many more factor. But here are some common tips 1 eat high fiber food like oats, bran, sprouts, beans 2 avoid eating refine flour and its product 3 eat fresh fruits instead of fruit juice. 4 after taking medicines take your meal within half hour

Diet in Diabetes a commonly asked Question ?

Diet in Diabetes a commonly asked Question ?
Dear friends, a proper measure for knowing and managing your diabetes will be to ensure a hba1c below 6.5%. Regarding diet, we indians have high carbohydrate diet. You have to closely observe your plate and you can come up with a better diet plan for yourself. To simplify it, identify the items which are carb rich in your plate and try to compensate the same with protein and fibres, for eg cut down a roti and increase sabji, dal or salad. To have a better control you can do a monthly self glucose monitoring 3 times a day and keep a track of the food with it. Check fasting sugar, sugar one hour prior to lunch and 2 hrs post lunch, and note down the details of her breakfast and lunch items. Modify as per my earlier suggestions and within a week you will see your blood sugar level responding. Keep a regular exercise schedule, around 45 mins walk would also do. Best of luck.
Please note self glucose monitoring and diet control is the only way to manage diabetes.

Mr. lybrate-user, If with current dosge of Insulin blood glucose is not well controlled, then one has to look at diet and insulin dosage closely. First fasting glucose can be targeted by adjusting night insulin dose and food intake. Once that is under control then post breakfast and lunch levels can be looked at. Alternately one can look at adding a drug orally. But for all this I need to know current fasting, PP levels and HbA1c%, dietary habits and extent of exercise being done daily. Plus there has to be regular follow up. Thanks.
