10 Tips To Stay Healthy With Type 1 Diabetes

10 Tips To Stay Healthy With Type 1 Diabetes

1-healthy eating having diabetes means learning how to count carbohydrates and how the foods you eat affect your blood sugar. A healthy meal plan also includes complex carbohydrates, protein, fiber (beans, whole grains, fruits and vegetables), lots of green, leafy vegetables, and limited amounts of heart-healthy fats.

2-being active physical activity can help you keep blood sugar levels normal and manage your diabetes. Being active can also improve your mood and reduce your feelings of stress and anxiety.

3-monitoring checking your blood sugar levels regularly gives you information about your diabetes management. Monitoring helps you know when your blood sugar levels are within your target range and helps you to make choices in what you eat and what you do.

4-taking medication obviously, it's important that you take your insulin, but it's vitally important that you understand how much to take in certain situations. This comes from careful monitoring of your blood sugar levels and getting to know the cause and effect between your insulin therapy and your blood sugar levels.

5-problem solving everyone encounters problems with their diabetes control. If/when you have a problem, you need to know how to troubleshoot your self-care. This can include analyzing and evaluating your situation and thinking about what was different from usual that could have affected your blood sugar. It also means coming up with solutions to try, as well as looking at what worked and what didn't. Don't get bitter, get better.

6-reducing risks you can take steps now to lower your risks of developing health problems in the future. Recommendations to reduce your risks and avoid other health problems include: not smoking, seeing you doctor regularly (to check a1c), visiting your eye doctor at least once a year, brushing and flossing daily and seeing your dentist, taking care of your feet, and listening to your body.

7-healthy coping living with diabetes and its daily demands for self-care can be stressful and may negatively impact your self-management. Not only can stress increase your blood sugar levels, but it can contribute to you making poor choices. The good news is there are many healthy ways to cope with stress.

I think this last point is vitally important, and I want to share three options for managing the stress of living with diabetes:

8-be kind to yourself. Do the best that you can do. It's important to feel good about your successes. Give yourself credit when you are successful at managing your blood sugar and don't be overly critical of yourself if you fall short of a goal.

9-seek support from a network of family and friends who you can talk to when you are upset. Seek opportunities to meet other people with diabetes, such as attending support groups or participating in online forums (such as podcasts or tweet chats), so that you won't feel isolated and alone. Talk to a psychologist or other mental health provider who provides diabetes-focused therapy if you feel depressed or overwhelmed.

10.-choose to have a positive attitude, and cultivate it every day, but also accept when you feel down about diabetes. To have occasional negative thoughts is normal; research has shown that acknowledging those thoughts may help people with diabetes keep their blood sugar levels stable. Acknowledge, but don't dwell; living with a negative mindset will limit your ability to cope. The way you think about events can influence your mood, thoughts and actions.

Vomiting could be just like that either due to crying after vaccine or could be due to combiflam.In either case just neglect it is only temporary.

You have not mentioned her birth weight. Babies will gain 500 gms in the first 3 months. If your baby has gained this weight, you need not worry. Give only mother's milk and vitamin d supplements.

Diet Tips for Students!

Hello, friends, I am Sheela Suhag Seharawat, Mentor Diet Clinic. We have been in this field for eleven years, meeting different kinds of people with a different kind of disease. Today, I’m going to discuss a healthy diet plan for students.

Jaise jo college going hai ya school going hai. Maximum parents ko bhi dikat aati hai ki unko kya khana chahiye ya bacho ko bhi nahi samajh mein aata ki unko kya apni daily routine life mein include karna chahiye. Toh uske liye mein aap ko kuch points batana chahoongi. Jaise hume sabse pehle students ko ek habit hoti hai ki morning time mein jaldi mein hote hai, jald baazi mein hote hai toh unka breakfast skip ho jata hai. So don’t skip your breakfast, have a healthy breakfast because aap ka sabse ek main meal breakfast ho jata hai kyunki uske baad ho sakta hai because of classes or because of aap ka busy schedule, lunch skip kar sakta ho but still breakfast pe aapko dhyaan dena hai. Agar aap healthy breakfast loge then the whole day you feel more active and more energetic, aap apne study pe concentrate kar sakte ho. Toh hume breakfast zaroor lena chahiye.

Second thing, try to include more variety in your food. Kya hota hai ki agar aap ek he type ki food lete ho toh uss mein humare nutrients itne healthy way se nahi ho pati. Toh aap jitni bhi variety include karoge apne food mein, utni he aap ko nutrients jyada milenge. Jaise aap more of fruits ke bajai, ek apple ya do apple ke bajai aap one apple, anar, plus seasonal fruits aap include kar sakte ho. Four to five different types of fruits every day aap ko include karna hai.

Next thing is that being a student hume stress hota hai, chahe woh studies ka ho ya woh marks ka ho. Toh use fight karne ke liye hume kabhi bhi kissi bhi junk food ka sahara nahi lena chahiye. Jaise habit hoti hai ki jaise he stress hoye hum ek chocolate le liya, chalo hum ek pastry khaane chale jaate hai ya patties le lete hai. Un cheezon ko hume avoid karna chahiye. Bajai ke hum uss time pe apne paas koi bhi handy healthy snacks agar aap apnea as paas rakh sakte ho. Jaise apne bag mein humesha carry a fruit so that kuch bhi aap ko iss type ki tension lage or you want to eat something, go for healthy snacks. Jaise diet chocolates rakh liya aap ne ya phir aap ne koi fruit rakh liya or if you are outside somewhere then go for some liquids jaise aap ne kuch lassi le liya. Yeh cheezein aap ke liye best hai.

Aur being a student aap ko concentration ki zaroorat hai toh uss ke liye aap ko liquid ke upar more concentrate karna hai. Jitna aap paani intake karoge utna he aap ka concentration, studies ke upar jyada concentrate kar paoge. Toh hume liquid jyada lena chahiye plus iss se aap apne aap ko dehydration se bhi baccha sakta hai. And hume anti-oxidants jyada chahiye toh uss ke liye aap fruits and vegetables aap apne diet mein jydada include kar sakte ho. Aur ek hota hai ki chalo hume kuch, as a student, hume kuch acha aur interesting bhi chahiye kyunki dil se toh hum hai he bacche, toh aap apne diet mein hafte mein ek cheat day zaroor rakho jaise poore week ka aap ko jo khaane ka dil kar raha hai, craving ho raha hai woh aap un dino mein kar sakte ho. Isse aap weekday pe apne diet ko healthy diet mein include kar sakte ho. Atleast hafte mein ek ya do din you can eat whatever you want to eat.

Being a student aap ko aisa nahi hai ki aap ko sirf meetha khaana hai, uske badle aap jo over sweet things include karte ho un cheezon ko hume avoid karna chahiye. Plus caffeinated ya aap ke junk food ke upar hume restrict karna chahiye kyunki who sab cheezein aap ko obesity ke taraf leke jayengi jo ki aap ke health ke liye theek nahi hai. And ek common feature hota hai skipping meals ki chalo humare paas time nahi hai, hum yeh skip kar dete hai, lunch skip kar dete hai ya dinner skip kar dete hai, don’t do this because ye automatically aap ke jo concentration hai, mind hai, uss par impact daalega. Aap meal skip karne ke bajai aap small meals in small intervals lo. Toh skip karne ki aadat aap ek dum apni schedule se nikalni hogi. Yeh kuch aap ke liye tips the.

HELLO - Most babies€™ spotty skin will go away by itself. However, if your baby's face is very oily, or the spots seem to be irritating her, gently wash her face a couple of times a day with warm water and pat dry. Don'€™t touch or squeeze the pimples or apply lotions or creams. The good news is, no matter what you do, the spots will go away within a month to six weeks.

Insist for proper nutrition regime than asking for a tonic. A 3 year child should take food like an adult. Do not accept any reasons to avoid food in solid form, but take care of child liking for a particular food. Explain her importance & need of healthy food in simple words with live examples.

My daughter age 1.3 year old suffering from running nose and cough please advice some medicine.

MBBS MD DCH, Dch

My daughter age 1.3 year old suffering from running nose and cough please advice some medicine.
Most of cough and cold lasting less than 7 days are viral in nature and self limiting. No treatment is required except normal saline nasal drops in case of nasal blockage. You can try home made remedies like karha honey for symptomatic relief. Never ever give antibiotics even if your doctor has prescribed. You must seek a opinion of your doctor if there is persistent purulent nasal discharge and cough beyond 2 weeks.

It seems your son is having nasal intonation, which is in medical term known as rhinolalia. Now there are two types of rhinolalia 1. Operta and 2. Clausa. Rhinolalia operta is caused by cleft palate, while rhinolalia clausa is caused by enlarged adenoids or any nasopharyngeal mass. So you must consult an experienced ent surgeon for proper diagnosis and treatment.
