Health tips for patients of diabetes mellitus

MBBS, MD - Community Medicine
General Physician, Ghaziabad
Health tips for patients of diabetes mellitus
Health tips for patients of diabetes mellitus. I wont write long list of do's and dont's. Its simple things which you can follow in your everyday life.

1. Avoid eating following food items. Potato, rice, corn, corn flakes, market made cereal, muesli (contains added sugar), oily stuff such as parantha, poori & pakode.

2. Take a brisk walk for at least 30 kin per day preferably in morning. Brisk walking means at a pace when you start getting tired and sweaty.

3. Weight reduction is very important. Of you r overweight join some cardio program or swimming or jogging or walking to reduce weight

4. Take small meals frequently. Instead of having large meals at long intervals.

5. Ideally blood sugar should be checked daily but thats not possible in our scenario so once a week or twice a month is f9.

6. Get your eyes checked regularly for signs of diabetic retinopathy. Visit ophthalmologist as soon as you are diagnosed with type diabetes. You will be shocked to know that a large number of diabetics are diagnosed by their ophthalmologists

7. Diabetes have an effect on kidneys and nerves also so get renal function test every 6 monthly or so.

8. Foot care is very imp in diabetes because even a trivial injury in. Leg can become gangrene. Use silicone sole footwear available at medical shops. Never go outside with bare foot.

10. Regular medicine intake is very imp

11. Lastly diabetes is a lifestyle disorder. Sedentary lifestyle makes things worse and result into syndrome x which apart from diabetes also includes increased lipids in blood and hypertension. Adopt an active life style.

Dear lybrateuser, - Good to know that your blood sugar levels are well controlled with medication - do not change the dose or medicines on your own as it will again alter the blood sugar levels, consult your diabetologist for the same & follow his advise.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The tablets mentioned are for increasing sperm count and quality. But these kind of drugs are more empirical. There is no hard clinical evidence to suggest that these drugs produce a definite benefit. Have got your sperms tested for number and quality? If not then better to get it done. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, t2 diabetes when goes on over 10 -15 years does tend to cause a number of long term complications. These tend to occur early if blood glucose control is not good. Persistent high blood glucose damages peripheral nerve endings leading to altered sensation and a patient feels tingling, numbness and burning sensation in the lower limbs, more so in feet. One of the primary requirement is to maintain a strict blood glucose control with fbs closer to 100 mg, pp 160 to 180 mg & hba1c% <7. There are various medicines used to improve this condition like vitamin b12, lipoleic acid, folic acid combinations and drugs like gabapentine and pragabalin. Thanks.

Hello, Clopidogrel & aspirin are needed for her to prevent aggregation of platelets statins needed for keeping cholesterol level in check. In patients with diabetes these drugs are often used in relation to cardiac problems, plus dyslipidemia is a commonly seen condition in diabetes. So there no problem with these drugs. Thanks.

Yes, if direct sugar, rice, potatoes and other carbohydrate ingradients are well controlled, milk without sugar can be taken. If triglyceride levels are normal then milk can be consumed but if TG level is high, then remove cream from milk and then use it.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus is occurring due to either lack of insulin or resistance to its action, so the treatment is to make that hormone available by increasing the secretion from islets of langerhans in pancreas or provide insulin from outside. Insulin is required constantly in the body for glucose, protein and fat metabolism. So it has to be made available daily. Hence there is no cure. It can only be controlled by drugs, diet and exercise.

Hi My father is having diabetes. Is it worth to use apple cedar vinegar for my father to lessen the Diabetes.
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. If diabetes is present then first and foremost is to take appropriate modern medicines to control blood glucose, plus take a restricted diet that provides exact amount of calories based on ideal body weight, extent of daily exercise and blood glucose levels. Then one can look at so called other supportive remedies as mentioned by you. Blood glucose should be: FBG <100 mg, PP 160 to 170 mg & HbA1c%<7. If you have any further doubts please do come back. Thanks.

Specific diet for a person has to be individualised. That can be done based on present weight, ideal weight, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. Unless all those details are there, no diet plan can be given. A general guide line can be as follows: your diet should be such that it meats the exact caloric needs based on ideal body weight, extent of daily exercise and how much one wants to loose. Looking at your height and weight your bmi is 28.75 kg/m2, (normal <23kg/m2). Your ideal body weight should be about 55 kgs. So your diet has to be planned for that weight plus amount of daily exercise also to be taken into consideration. Should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, aerated sweetened drinks, pastries, fructose corn syrup containing foods, highly processed foods, high fat mil products. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain products, no refined flour. Dink at least 8 cups of water every day.
