Diabetes - 5 Tips To Control It!

BHMS, MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Navi Mumbai
Diabetes - 5 Tips To Control It!

Diabetes is a lifestyle disease that can easily be managed by controlling our diet. Along with being aware of your sugar intake, your diet should help you lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels. However, this does not mean you have to resign yourself to a lifetime of tasteless food.

Here are a few diet tips that can help manage diabetes: 

  1. Choose high fiber carbohydrates: Carbohydrates are an essential element of the daily diet but have a huge impact on blood sugar levels. Hence, it is important to pick the right carbohydrates. Your diet should have a limited amount of refined carbohydrates such as white bread, pasta, soda etc. and should be focused more on high fiber carbohydrates such as brown rice, sweet potatoes, rolled oats and bran flakes that are digested slowly. This prevents your body from producing excessive insulin.
  2. Be sweet smart: The key to indulge your sweet tooth and controlling diabetes is moderation. Abruptly, removing sugar from your diet can make you crave for it. Instead, gradually lower your sugar intake. If you can't miss out on the dessert at the end of a meal, reduce the amount of carbohydrates in your meal. Adding healthy fats like peanut butter, yogurt or nuts to your dessert can also slow down the digestive process and thus control blood sugar level.
  3. Keep a food diary: When you are diabetic, it is very important to eat at regular intervals. Eating frequent, small meals are often better than fewer large meals. Try and maintain a food diary to keep track of your calorie intake. This helps identify problem areas of where your body is getting excessive calories from. When you are aware of the calories associated with things you eat, it is easier to cut down on snacks and replace unhealthy snacks with healthier options.
  4. Choose fats wisely: It is impossible to completely cut out fats from your diet. While some fats such as liquid vegetable oils and commercial baked goods are unhealthy, others have important health benefits. Unsaturated fats are the healthiest and safest. Replacing your vegetable cooking oil for olive oil and biscuits with nuts are easy ways to make smart choices with your fat intake.
  5. Go green: Green leafy vegetables are low on carbohydrates and high on nutrients. Thus, make them an integral part of your meal. Vegetables like kale, spinach, lettuce, etc. can be eaten raw or cooked. Along with being nutritious, they also add texture and color to your meals, thus making them more visually appealing.

Prevent Diabetes with Lifestyle Changes!

Prevent Diabetes with Lifestyle Changes!

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder that results in high blood sugar levels in the body. It basically means that the body is either insensitive to insulin or the insulin production levels in the body go down. The various symptoms of diabetes are blurred vision, weight loss and hunger.

Some other symptoms of diabetes are

  1. Excessive urine output
  2. Wounds that take time to heal
  3. Yeast infections
  4. You may experience fatigue on a regular basis
  5. Frequent Mood Changes

Diabetes is also known as a Lifestyle disease. From the food you eat to the amount of activity, they are all connected to diabetes prevention. The various modifications that you may carry out to prevent diabetes are:

1. Exercise

You should exercise on a regular basis as it increases your overall wellbeing. It helps you to lose weight and allows you to maintain optimal blood sugar levels. It can also improve your body's sensitivity to insulin to prevent blood sugar problems. Exercise helps in increasing endorphin levels in the body which are responsible for keeping you happy & satiated, thereby avoiding depression and over-eating.

2. Eat more whole grains

Unlike simple carbohydrates, whole grains are complex carbohydrates that raise your blood sugar steadily instead of spiking it suddenly. Avoid refined grains as most of the important nutrients are stripped from refined grains. A Well-balanced diet with adequate amounts of PUFA/MUFA help in increasing the insulin sensitivity, reducing cholesterol and heart problems, etc.

3. Eat a lot of fiber

If you have type 2 diabetes, you should be, including high-fiber foods in your diet is a healthy way to control high blood sugar. Fiber does not raise blood glucose levels. Because it is not broken down by the body, the fiber in an apple or a slice of whole grain bread has no effect on blood glucose levels because it isn't digested. The grams of fiber can actually be subtracted from the total grams of carb you are eating if you are using carbohydrate counting for meal planning. Fiber helps you in feeling satiated, thus prevents you from overeating. It also improves your blood sugar levels and decreases your chances of getting affected by heart disease.

4. Lose weight

You should aim to maintain a healthy weight level as it also decreases the risk of diabetes. It also helps in improving your cardiovascular health. Follow a regimen, which is based on a balanced diet and moderate amount of exercise. Losing weight is the best way to keep diabetes away. Weight is something that we can keep under control. The waist size of men and women should not be more than 150 cm and 90 cm respectively. Always maintain your ideal body weight as per your BMI (Body Mass Index). Globally, obesity is one of the leading causes of diabetes.

5. Avoid sugary drinks

With ten teaspoons of sugar in every 12-ounce can or bottle, sweet drinks can send your blood sugar soaring and boost your risk for weight gain, high blood pressure, stroke, and heart disease. One sugary drink a day adds 150 empty calories and 40 to 50 grams of blood-sugar-raising carbohydrates to your diet, and can lead to a weight gain of 15 pounds per year. Switching to healthier drinks can save hundreds of calories and a lot of carbohydrates.

6. Avoid Stress

When you are stressed, your blood sugar levels rise. Stress hormones like epinephrine and cortisol kick in since one of their major functions is to raise blood sugar to help boost energy when it's needed most. You can't fight danger when your blood sugar is low, so it rises to help meet the challenge. Both physical and emotional stress can prompt an increase in these hormones, resulting in an increase in blood sugars and diabetes. Ensuring a stress-free life is very important if you want to stay away from diabetes. Avoid stress by going out for garden-walks, indulging in social causes/activities, yoga, meditation, etc.

Hypothyroidism - Ways Homeopathy Can Help You!

Hypothyroidism - Ways Homeopathy Can Help You!

As we age, we may get a lot wiser and experienced; however, the down-side of gaining knowledge and experience is that we also have to face a lot of health issues and troubles. Problems related to hormones and glands become common as we grow older, and one amongst the most common problems is hypothyroidism. This is a problem that affects the thyroid gland, which is located around the throat region, and is commonly found in women. When the thyroid gland does not produce enough hormones or is underactive, you may be diagnosed with hypothyroidism.

The lack of activity in the thyroid gland may lead to a number of other issues such as lowering of metabolism and the disturbance of immunity in the body. The problem of slow thyroid may alsoarise because of the lack of iodine in the body, and in any case, it is important to bring the issue under control so that a healthy lifestyle may be achieved.

Homeopathy and hypothyroidism
One of the best ways to be able to deal with lifestyle and hormone diseases is to opt for homeopathic treatment. Homeopathy is the branch of medicine that usesnatural means and products to treat health issues; the biggest and most stubborn of diseases are known to be treated with the help of this stream of medication. The same holds true for hypothyroidism because it is found that the most effective way to treat this problem is through the use of homeopathic medicines.

Since there are a lot of medicines that can be used for treating hypothyroidism through homeopathy, the medicines that are prescribed by medical practitioners are segregated on the basis of the symptoms or the effects of the problem, such as the following:

  1. You may be prescribed homeopathy medicines for hypothyroidism if you are experiencing excessive weight gain, which is one of the main symptoms of this condition. In such cases, you may be given medicines that help in controlling not only weight gain issues but also issues of lowered hormone secretion.
  2. A lot of homeopathy experts also suggest medicines that are exclusively developed for women who experience menstrual issues due to hypothyroidism, which also happens to be a common occurrence.
  3. The tolerance for cold in a lot of people is also affected due to the presence of hypothyroidism, which may require a different type of treatment or medication in the field of homeopathy.
  4. Many also suffer from issues such as constipation and hair fall which are generally connected to the symptoms of hypothyroidism,and the homeopathic medicines prescribed by doctors may help in tackling such symptoms.

While it may be wise to choose homeopathy as your preferred stream of medicine when hypothyroidism is diagnosed, it is also important to make sure that the best and the most experienced doctors in the arena are chosen for getting the most effective treatment.

Diabetic Nephropathy - Ways That Can Help You Manage It!

Diabetic Nephropathy - Ways That Can Help You Manage It!

Diabetic nephropathy (Diabetic Kidney Disease) is defined as the progressive damage to the kidneys caused by diabetes. It is characterised by the scarring of the glomeruli in the kidneys due to prolonged diabetes mellitus.

What Causes Diabetic Nephropathy?

Diabetes is a condition characterized by high concentration of blood sugar. Although the cause of Diabetes Nephropathy is not yet well defined, it is likely that the high sugar levels in the blood damage the blood vessels present in the kidneys that help to filter waste products, thus resulting in decreased kidney function and ultimately, kidney failure.

Not everyone with diabetes suffers from diabetic nephropathy. Although, factors that can increase your chances of getting diabetic neuropathy are-

  1. Smoking

  2. Poor control of blood glucose

  3. High blood pressure

  4. History of kidney diseases

What are the symptoms of diabetic nephropathy?

In the early stages, there may be no symptoms at all, but as the disease progresses, you may notice swelling in the extremities like your feet. Thus it is recommended to get your blood albumin levels tested on a regular basis. If it is diagnosed in early stages, the damage can be reversed. Other symptoms that can indicate damage to the kidneys are-

  1. Severe malaise

  2. Headaches

  3. Nausea

  4. Lack of appetite

  5. Frequent voiding

  6. Itchiness of skin

  7. General feeling of illness

Diagnostic tests that can confirm diabetic nephropathy are-

Routine urine test (urinalysis) - Kidney diseases are detected by the presence of a protein in the urine called albumin and this condition is called albuminuria. Other parameters that must be regularly monitored are-

  1. Blood pressure

  2. Cholesterol levels in your blood

How can you treat/ manage diabetic nephropathy?

If this type of nephropathy is diagnosed in the early stages, the damage to the kidneys can be reversible. The key to managing diabetic nephropathy are-

  1. Diet: Reduce the dietary intake of salt, phosphorous and potassium in the advanced stages.

  2. Glycemic Control: Monitor your blood glucose levels regularly

  3. Management of Hypertension: It is important to manage your blood pressure as it can have a direct effect on the coronary blood vessels which in turn pump blood to the various blood vessels of the body

  4. Renal Replacement Therapy: In chronically ill patients, renal replacement therapy is the best option. This can include haemodialysis (a procedure to flush out toxins from the blood, such as urea), peritoneal dialysis or ultimately renal transplantation.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Risk of getting T1 diabetes does increase if parents have it. If father has T1 DM then child developing T1 diabetes is 1 in 17. Where as If a woman with type 1 diabetes and your child was born before you were 25, your child's risk is 1 in 25; if the child was born after the woman turns 25 years, the risk is 1 in 100. These are the statistics. It is very difficult to predict what may happen. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, thanks for the query. Usually with TSH < 10 mU/L, no treatment is advocated. However, if there are troublesome symptoms are present then treatment is given. In your case symptoms like constipation, fatigue and cold intolerance as well as weight increase are indicating that there is a need for treatment. Your BP is also not in good control (ideally with treatment it should be 120 to 130 / 70 to 80 mmHg). Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. By taking Atorvastatin 2 tablets a day (20 mg per day), is unlikely to cause any such problem of increase in blood glucose. It is possible that you were earlier in a pre-diabetes state and that condition has now changed to overt diabetes. Please tell me the earlier Fasting, PP levels if you remember. In any case if present level is showing 300 mg, then it needs to be treated. So please check fasting, PP and HbA1c% and come back. Also inform details like your height, dietary pattern, extent of daily exercise. Also check the lipid profile. 300 mg (whether fasting or after food) is a very high glucose level, demanding urgent correction. Thanks.

1. You are perfectly normal and you can do every time of physical or mental activity without any hindrance. 2. TSH high - indicates Hypothyroidism - which means you will have to take Thyroxine to compensate for lack of it being produced by your body. 3. It is a very common problem with no impact on your health. 4. Please visit a physician with test results who will guide you further. 5. Be relaxed, no need for worry.

I AM diabetic patient. WHICH MEDICINE I SHOULD TAKE. Would I TAKE MEDICINE regularly.
Hello, Thanks for the query. For treating diabetes there are many different medications both oral and injectable. The drug selection is done on the basis of individual patients needs. One has to look at blood glucose levels, HbA1c%, weight, height, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. Without those details drug/s can not be decided. Hence, my suggestion is please come in a private conversation (paid consultation) with all the above mentioned details, then I will be able to give the specific prescriptions and much needed instructions to be followed for stricter glucose control. Or else consult a close by diabetologist and start treatment early. Neglecting the condition is detrimental to your health. Thanks.

I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism on October 2016 with TSH level 5.12 I consulted with endocrinologists. They suggested me not to start medicine and keep on checking TSH, T3, T4 level once in 2 months. I did so. My TSH level in the mean time came as 2.49, 2.21, 3.09 and also normal T3, T4 levels. But now 10 days ago my TSH level came as 6.45 I am extremely worried. I am preparing for civil services exam (IAS) which is the toughest exam. If I am diagnosed with hypo thyroid, my brain power will surely get diminished. Then is it possible for me to crack the exam? Many of my friends and family members suggested me to forget the IAS exam as it may not be possible anymore. I am worried. Please suggest.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The TSH levels earlier and current both are in sub-clinical hypothyroidism level. Usually at this level no treatment is advised. When level crosses 10 mU/L, hypothyroidism is confirmed and treatment is initiated. However, occasionally in some patients even at the sub-clinical level, if there are troublesome symptoms of hypothyroidism present then treatment is initiated with a minimal dose. Please tell me why was the test done? Was there any specific reason for getting the test done? If there is no specific problem, then there is absolutely no reason to worry. But if you have any specific issue, then treatment can be started. As regards your preparation for civil service exam and clearing it, if you are confident of your preparation and capabilities, then nothing will stop you from clearing it with flying colours. Low thyroid levels affect clear thinking and intelligence etc only when it is uncontrolled hypothyroidism. Still if you have any doubts please come back with answers to my few queries mentioned above, then I will be able to guide. Thanks.

The fact is that there is a high correlation between nicotine abuse and bipolar disorder. This is merely an association and association does not prove causation. Hence, while stopping nicotine will definitely impact your health in a positive manner, you will need to do much more to reverse your disorders. In a case such as yours, I would include other positive lifestyle changes and plan a comprehensive management of metabolic and Hormonal imbalances.

My wife's T3=89

TSH=57.08
Is it hypothyroidism? Taking 100 mg thyroxine tablet, is it ok?
Hello, Thanks for the query. TSH 57.08 mU/L, shows it is confirmed hypothyroidism. Hence the treatment is also correct. Please ensure that TSH level is maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, with adequate dosage of thyroxine. So please check TSH after 6 to 8 weeks, if the level is still above the recommended range, then there is a need to increase the dose further. Plus it is necessary to take the drug early morning on empty stomach, then nothing to be taken for at least 1 to 1 and half hour. Plus she should avoid soy beans, soy containing products and consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Avoid bakery items and foods made of maida completely. Thanks.

Most important is to keep your blood glucose in good control with fasting < 100 mg, PP 160 to 180 mg & HbA1c% <7. If you have no symptoms bothering please ignore those results. Another important thing to remember is to reduce your weight, with a BMI of 26.95 kgs/M2, you are overweight. Your ideal body should be about 55 kgs. Therefore, please look at your diet and exercise. Do not worry about other things. Thanks.

Please understand that because of longstanding uncontrolled diabetes, you were already at a high risk of complications like heart attack and kidney dysfunction, and after the heart attack now that risk has come true and also your kidneys are already show impact of diabetes because creatinine is 1.7, So in your case it is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY that you have good sugar control as well as take all necessary medication timely to prevent any new heart blockage or further worsening of kidney problem. Insulin is a very safe and effective medication and you should take it as advised, also please remain in close follow up of a endocrinologist to keep your hbA1c around 6.5%. And I will advise you against mixing of allopathic and ayurvedic medicine because of two reasons - 1) it can lead to drug interactions with blood thinners and stains and side-effects due to those interactions. The blood thinners and statins are absolutely essential for your stent to function normally. 2) Because quite a lot of ayurvedic medications are excreted from kidneys and can cause further damage to your already damaged kidney function. So it will be best if you take your allopathic medication and insulun and lifestyle precautions and proper diet to stay helathy and please keep in close touch with your endocrinologist for proper sugar control.
