Childhood Obesity!

Masters in Endocrinology, MBBS, C.Diab, CCEBDM(DIABETOLOGY), CCMTD, DOMS
Endocrinologist, Mumbai

Childhood obesity comes with a diverse group of physical challenges, but we often forget about two other areas-mental affects and monetary costs. The physical effects of childhood obesity have an incredible long term fiscal cost that can carry on well into adulthood. Similarly, the emotional tolls of being overweight as a child can have a lifelong influence on self-esteem, depression and anxiety.

Stevia you can use. Eating more calorie rich food is associated with increased incidence of diabetes and not only sugar.

Top 5 Benefits of Iron!

Top 5 Benefits of Iron!

1. Energy

An iron deficiency can mean that you aren’t able to produce enough oxygen-carrying red blood cells — therefore your body struggles to transport oxygen to your brain, tissues, muscles and cells, leaving you feeling exhausted and weak. 

2. Muscle function

Iron is needed for muscle movement because it helps store the oxygen in muscles that allows them to move and strengthen. About 70 percent of your body’s iron can found in the red blood cells of your blood called hemoglobin along with muscle cells called myoglobin. It accepts, stores, transports and releases oxygen.

3. Brain function

The brain is very dependent on oxygen for proper function. If iron is not present, the brain does not receive the oxygen it needs, resulting in poor memory, decreased productivity and apathy. Children with iron deficiency tend to become irritable, restless and are unable to pay attention in class. These symptoms typically disappear once iron levels are restored.

4. Healthy pregnancy

Pregnant women should consume more iron-rich foods than anyone else since not only do they require iron, but they also need to meet the needs of the fetus and placenta. Pregnant women’s iron needs are around 27 milligrams daily, and this is often covered in a prenatal multivitamin

According to the world health organization, iron deficiency during a pregnancy can increase the risk of maternal and infant mortality, premature birth, and low birthweight. 

5. Restless leg syndrome

Restless leg syndrome is a condition characterized by uncomfortable feelings in your legs, giving you a strong urge to move them in order to find relief. Low iron levels are known to play a role in the occurrence of restless leg syndrome.

Ramadan And Diabetes!

Ramadan And Diabetes!

Ramadan fasting myths that you should avoid!

The spirit of ramadan has taken over the city and along with the surge of spirituality, the air filled with the sweet aroma of ramadan special foods. Even as the harsh summer has come to an end with breezy evenings, people are lining up to enjoy the treats of ramadan food. However, for those diabetics who are fasting, there is still a bit of apprehension.
Though many diabetics are aware of their condition, most of them approach ramadan fasting without a proper ramadan meal plan. The fear of hypoglycemia haunts them, but their fervor to fast in this holy month has renewed.

Be it due to lack of awareness or misinformation, fasting in diabetes can cause serious complications. Many people tend to have some dangerous preconceived notions regarding their disease condition and often have to stop midway to end their fasting.

I found that people have these three common myths on fasting in the month of ramadan.

1. Can a type2 diabetes fast?
This is another question that constantly crops up. It all depends upon the blood glucose control a patient has along with other factors including the prevalence of complications including retinopathy, nephropathy, and neuropathy. However, patients who have been admitted to the hospital for hypoglycemia in the past six months should not fast.
Here are three major ramadan fasting myths busted!

Quick tips:
• Fasting in diabetes can be a real challenge. Ramadan fasting can be a daunting task for diabetics if they do not make proper preparations before starting off. It is very important to have a preliminary evaluation by a qualified diabetologist.

• Also, blood sugar levels have to be monitored regularly during this month.


Myth 1: It is okay for diabetics to skip taking their insulin injections during the ramadan month.
Fact: It is dangerous to stop taking your insulin injections as it can lead to serious complications. One should consult a doctor to create an altered plan along with dosages, and timings of the injections. It can be worthwhile to consult a dietician for a ramadan diet plan.


Myth 2: Diabetics need not wake up for suhoor.
Fact: Instead of having all the meals at midnight, it is better for the diabetic to have a meal with low glycemic index early in the morning before sunrise. This is very important as diabetics have to go without meals for long hours and this increases the risk of hypoglycemia.


Myth 3: There is no need to change the current diabetic medications during the ramadan fasting month.
Fact: This can go seriously wrong for some diabetics. It is advised that one should have an assessment before the ramadan month and then start fasting. The timings and dosages of medications might be altered with respect to the blood glucose control of the patient as the meal timings change and there is both fasting and feasting.
It is very important for you to maintain a good blood glucose control in order to successfully complete the fasting during this month.
