Mr. Lybrate-user, she should control her blood sugar very well, avoiding serious hypoglycemic episodes. As for you if you do not have diabetes, then there is no special precaution required. Do not consider her diabetes as some thing special situation, just handle it as a routine problem. Best of luck.

Building Muscle with Diabetes Weight training can help increase your metabolism Weight training can help increase your metabolism Having diabetes won't stop you from building muscle. However, it's wise to follow a few precautions when it comes to gaining muscle. There are many different types of exercise and one of the most popular is strength or power training, which is very effective for building strong bones and muscles. Strong muscles collect oxygen and nutrients from the blood much more efficiently than weak ones, meaning that any physical activity you do will require less cardiac work and put less strain on your heart. As well as being good for the heart, they also improve weight control and help the body remain sensitive to the hormone insulin, which is vital for keeping blood sugar levels in check and preventing or controlling Here are some tips on how you can build strong, lean muscle, without affecting your diabetes: Load up on protein Protein intake is vital for building muscle. However, your body constantly drains its protein reserves for other uses such as producing hormones, resulting in less protein available for muscle building. To counteract this, you need to build and store new proteins faster than your body breaks down old proteins. You should look to consume about 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight, which is roughly the maximum amount your body can use in a day. Good sources of protein include: Chicken Tuna Eggs, milk and cottage cheese Protein shakes (see below for more about shakes) Remember, the more protein your body stores (protein synthesis), the larger your muscles grow. Have a protein shake before your workout Protein shakes are very effective for improving strength. While many trainers have a post-workout shake, research has shown that drinking a shake containing at least 6 grams of amino acids - the muscle-building blocks of protein - and 35 grams of carbohydrates 30-60 minutes before exercising increases your protein synthesis more than drinking the same shake after training. "Since exercise increases bloodflow to your working tissues, drinking a carbohydrate-protein mixture before your workout may lead to greater uptake of the amino acids in your muscles, says Kevin Tipton, PhD, an exercise and nutrition researcher at the University of Texas. Good quality whey-protein powders usually contain at least 30 grams of protein per serving, as well as a healthy supply of vitamins and minerals. Other liquid supplements such as weight-gain powders can also provide a lot of high quality protein and nutrients in each serving, but they also tend to be extremely high in calories, carbohydrates and sugar. While this is sufficient for most weight lifters, it is not ideal for those with conditions such as type 2 diabetes, for whom weight loss may be a key goal. Work your biggest muscles If you're new to weight lifting or strength training, just about any workout will be intense enough to increase protein synthesis and build muscle. On the Forum Protein Shake/Supplement for Muscle Building Building toned muscles with type 1? Building muscle Muscle and strength building However, if you're experienced with weights, you'll see the biggest and fastest results by focusing on the large muscle groups, like the back, legs and chest. The best exercises for these body parts are squats, dead-lifts, bench press, leg press, pull-ups, bent-over rows, shoulder press and dips. Add two or three sets of 8 or 12 repetitions to your workout, with about 60 seconds' rest between sets. Eat a high-quality meal after training Post-workout meals or snacks should be high in carbohydrates and protein. Carbohydrates are needed to fuel exercise. As well as being a vital energy source they also play a role in the release of insulin, which regulates levels of blood sugar and is also the body’s most potent anabolic hormone. However, people with diabetes are generally advised to limit their carb intake to keep their blood sugar levels under control as their bodies struggle to produce insulin or don’t use the insulin produced effectively. The problem with this though is that a lack of stored carbs can result in the body using protein for energy production, thus leaving less protein for building muscle. The key is to cut out bad carbs such as. Refined, processed carbohydrates found in white bread, potatoes, pasta and rice from your diet and replace them with good, unprocessed carbs from fruit and vegetables, beans, nuts, seeds and whole-grain versions of bread, pasta and rice. Foods with good carbs generally have a lower glycemic index (GI), which means they tend to break down slowly to form glucose. Low GI foods also have a high nutritional value and provide prolonged release of energy. Drink plenty of water Adequate water consumption is one of the most overlooked factors in exercise. Water comprises up to 70% of the human body and if you're dehydrated, your muscle size suffers as well. The other way of looking at it is that one pound of muscle can hold up to three pounds of water. Rest Rest is another hugely overlooked factor in building strong, lean muscle. The simple fact is that after an intense workout, the body needs the proper nutrients and recovery time to grow bigger and stronger. In fact, your muscles grow when you're resting, not when you're working out. If you’re a beginner, do a full-body workout followed by a day of rest. Alternatively look at setting aside at least 3 days of rest each week. Consume good fats A common misconception among the general public is that all types of fat are bad for you. While saturated fats and trans fats (i.e. Bad fats) increase cholesterol and your risk of certain diseases, monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats can have the opposite effect and benefit your overall physical and mental health. They are also important for muscle growth. Good sources of healthy fats such as omega-3 fatty acids include: Fish - salmon, tuna, mackerel, herring, trout and sardines Avocados Olives and olive oil Nuts - almonds, hazelnuts, pecans, walnuts, cashews and macadamia nuts Peanut butter Tofu Sunflower, sesame, and pumpkin seeds, and flaxseed.

Hi Sir In my childhood days, I eat lot of sugar & sweets. At age of 10, a big worm came out from the anal. After that I hv started reducing intake of sweets. Now a days I hv completely stopped taking sugar. But sometimes if I take sweet even once in a month. I feel small worm biting. Kindly help.

Hi Sir
In my childhood days, I eat lot of sugar & sweets.

Mr. Lybrate-user, first let me clarify that eating sweets does not cause worms in the intestine. Worms such as round worm (big long ones), hook worm, pin worm all occur because of contaminated water or food containing their eggs goes in our intestine and then those eggs get converted to adult worms. Eating unclean food, roadside eating, drinking unfiltered water, unhygienic habits are the cause for most worm infections, the symptom now experienced is mostly due to pin worm (enterobious vermicularis). There are specific drugs which can eradicate them, but these are some of the toughest worms do eradicate.

If there is confirmed diabetes, the only way to treat it is to take modern medicines - anti diabetes drugs either oral or insulin injections or both depending upon the need. Other medical therapies are at the most can be used as supportive treatments. Along with proper drugs, exercise and diet control are also very important. Plus please understand there is no cure for diabetes. In some ads people claim they cure diabetes, this is totally false. If anyone cures diabetes then he will get nobel prize for that. So do not go by any adds. There are some ayurvedic medicines being advertised none of them have been tried like modern medicines on human beings in double blind trials. Only some animal trials are done. So better not to go by adds. Thanks for the question. Th.

Diabetes is not a disease that occurs only due to consumption of lot of sweets. Infact it is a lifestyle disorder, that is seen more because of sedentary lifestyle. Regular exercising, eating adequate & nutritious diet, at regular time intervals will help to lower the blood glucose level.
