One of the most important things you can do if you have diabetes is maintain a healthy weight. If you are overweight, talk to a registered dietitian about healthy ways to lose weight. Get regular physical activity. There is a significant body of research that proves the myriad cardiovascular benefits of regular physical activity (that goes beyond weight loss). Start off slowly, and build a plan that works well for you and meets your needs. Don’t smoke. If you already do, make plans to begin a smoking cessation program.

It is advised to eat plenty fruit and other fibre food to prevent heart deceases. However sugar level is likely to increase due to fruit intake what is the remedy?

Hello, Thanks for the query. Intake of fruits is good in persons who have no diabetes. Even in those with diabetes when blood glucose is well controlled some fruits in limited quantity are good enough. For a person without diabetes there is absolutely no problem at all. As regards other fiber containing foods, intake of those foods does not cause a marked increase in glucose. The restrictions are specifically for a person with diabetes only. Thanks.

My father age is 73 and he is a brain stroke patient he is taking cresar H for pressure and aciloc RD for acidity and ecosprin gold 10 now my question is will he able to take 10 ml of aloe vera juice with 1 spoon of honey on a regular basis? I have heard that taking aloe vera juice will damage kidney. Will it be safe for him? Please reply.

General Physician, Fatehabad
I would suggest that you consult your doctor for this. However, aloe vera has a neuro-protective action. It has an anti paralytic action for stroke. There is no evidence if honey can be used in stroke patients. Please be careful about what you give to your father. Best would be that you speak with your treating physician and take a way forward. Hope this helps. Good Luck.
