Chapattis can help in controlling diabetes or not? I show most old man eat Chapattis for diabetes issue.

Chapattis can help in controlling diabetes or not? I show most old man eat Chapattis for diabetes issue.
Mr. Lybrate-user, chapatis are like roti and rice, as all these foods contain starch. Starch is converted to glucose in the intestine. Hence, eating more chapatis is definitely not beneficial or advisable. Wheat flour from which chapatis are made is containing mainly starch. 100 g of whole wheat flour gives 407 calories, about 87 g of carbohydrate, 16 g of proteins and 2 g of fats. Hence, taking more wheat flour as chapatis is definitely ideal for controlling diabetes. It can be a part of the total food. As far as I know, hardly anyone will depend on chapati only for sugar control.

Why Diabetic Patients Develop Eating Disorders?

Why Diabetic Patients Develop Eating Disorders?

Diabulimia is a type of eating disorder in which patients of Type 1 diabetes intake less amount of insulin purposely, in order to lose weight. This disorder, however, is not a formal diagnosis. The disorder may be defined as disturbed eating behavior. 

Our body requires insulin for moving glucose from the blood to the cells. In type 1 diabetes patients, the pancreas stop producing insulin and glucose gets stored in our bloodstream. This causes extra stress on the kidney in getting rid of excess of sugar. The body gets devoid of glucose and the calories associated with it and a rapid loss in weight occurs. Patients develop binge eating, with more emphasis on sugar and carbohydrate enriched foods. The excess sugar gets out of the body by urinating.

The symptoms of this disease are:

  1. Occurrence of hyperglycemia
  2. Developing a habit of eating more, but still experiencing weight loss
  3. The shift in weight may be dramatic
  4. The energy level is low
  5. Eating patterns turn unusual
  6. Binge eating
  7. Developing an obsession for food
  8. Enhanced awareness about body image
  9. Feeling anxious about the weight
  10. A delay occurs in sexual maturity or attaining puberty
  11. Occurrence of stress
  12. Hospitalization is required frequently for diabetic patients
  13. Exercising amount increases
  14. The patient tends to hide food
  15. There is a smell of ketones from the breath and urine of the patient
  16. Frequency of urination gets enhanced
  17. Malnutrition occurs signalled by hair loss or drying of skin

Health hazards of Diabulimia

  1. Diabulimia can cause a great amount of permanent effects on the body, irrespective of age.
  2. Patients with diabulimia have a risk of getting early comorbidities.
  3. Health issues similar to issues arising from diabetes are observed, but are more adverse in nature.
  4. Dehydration happens along with excess urination.
  5. The patient experiences fatigue and the level of concentration falls down.
  6. An electrolyte disbalance is caused.
  7. There may be risk of heart attack, stroke, retinopathy, neuropathy, gastroparesis.
  8. Vascular disorders, gum infections and infertility in women may also occur.
  9. In the most extreme cases, death occurs.

Prevention
It has been proven by research that almost 30% of type 1 diabetes patients are the ones who abstain from or avoid using insulin in order to lose weight. This habit leads to the risk of many other fatal diseases which may be permanent in nature. Dibulimia is more common among teenage girls who suffer from type 1 diabetes and are generally obsessed with body image. Diabulimia is an eating disorder which leaves a patient at risk of acquiring many other severe diseases. It is advised not to neglect your insulin. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

I am suffering from diabetes ,thyroid amd blood pressure. Diabetes is high. Kindly prescribe so that I may reduce it ...
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I have looked at the details and understand your concern. However, the information is very general. To prescribeany medicine I need to know following details: For diabetes - fasting, PP blood glucose levels, HbA1c%, diet pattern and extent of daily exercise. For thyroid (probably hypothyroidism) TSH level and BP reading. Unless that information is available, no prescription can be given. Plus looking at your weight and height, it is clear that you are close to being in grade 1 obesity with a BMI of 29.74 kgs/M2. Your weight has to be close to 53 kgs. If you are really interested in getting proper treatment please come back with all the above information in a private conversation (paid consultation) so that I can give specific guidance and prescriptions. In this communication we can give only general guidelines and no prescriptions are allowed. Thanks.

Hi there, I need advise on diet. I,m prediabetes with 6.2 hba1c level. And having low BP issues with the reading always below 100/70. I'm over 80 with the height of 5.6, so pls also add tips to reduce weight and have normal BMI. Regards

Dear Lybrateuser, - You can control your blood sugar & reduce weight by dietary modifications & by doing regular exercise - increase your fibre intake by having more of fruits & vegetables including green leafy ones & other seasonal ones, have whole grains instead of processed foods beans, sprouts, legumes, pulses, these will provide you with energy & keep you full - try to combine a carb with a protein like cottage cheese, peas, yogurt, tofu, soy product to keep your blood sugar stable - restrict fried, junk, processed foods, sweets & aerated drinks, also only 1-2 cups of tea, coffee per day - have 4-5 small meals including snacks rather than having three large meals, chew your food well, restrict portion size, be regular in your meal timings, do not skip meals - for your BP take adequate water & 8-10 glasses per day sprinkle a pinch of salt on your food, do regular exercise like brisk walking, jogging, swimming for 30-40 min, do moderate weight lifting at least twice a week, also do yoga for 5-10 min in the morning - check your weight, BP once a week, also check sugar, cholesterol regularly.

Mr. lybrate-user, Eating about 30 to 50 g of peanuts per day is good. TThey provide a good quantity of proteins plus some fats. There is very little carb, so hardly cause any blood glucose rise. Thanks.

Treatments Available for Infertility

Treatments Available for Infertility

Infertility is a condition, which is characterized by the inability to have a baby for over a year in spite of having planned and unprotected sex. It is a pretty common phenomenon for both men and women. However, there are several treatments available for both the sexes to help them recover from this problem. Here are some of the most common treatments available for infertility:

For Men

1. Changing your lifestyle: Certain factors in your lifestyle, which may cause you to be infertile include the medications you take, lack of exercise or not having intercourse frequently enough or not at the right time. The solution for these problems is simply incorporating certain changes in your daily life, such as exercising more, sticking to a healthy diet or having intercourse more often at the right time.

2. Sperm retrieval: Sperm retrieval is the technique used when you cannot ejaculate or when there is hardly any sperm present in your semen. It is also used in case of a low sperm count.

For Women

1. Intrauterine insemination: Intrauterine insemination is a process in which healthy sperm cells are put into the uterus so that the egg gets fertilized when it is released. The sperm cells have to be inserted at the time when your ovaries release eggs; therefore it is crucial to know your menstrual cycle as well as how fertility drugs are affecting it.

2. Fertility drugs: Fertility drugs are used to stimulate ovulation. This is done by administering medications which either regulate or cause ovulation to occur. There are several types of fertility drugs, so you should talk to your doctor about which should be the best for you.

3. Hysteroscopic surgery: This is a last resort, which is taken only when there are significant problems such as intrauterine scar tissue, uterine septum or endometrial polyps.

4. IVF: IVF is an assisted reproductive technology. During IVF, the sperm is first retrieved, after which fertility medications are given to the woman so that the egg can be retrieved. Finally, the egg is fertilized on a laboratory dish and injected back into the mother or a surrogate mother.

A tsh level of 7 milli units is a subclinical hypothyroidism. So normally there is no treatment required. Only when tsh level goes over 10 milli units/ ml treatment is advocated. But sometime even at a lower level of tsh like yours, if t4 level is low, if there are any troublesome symptoms of hypothyroidism then treatment si given.
