Diabesity

M.D. Internal Medicine
Endocrinologist, Mumbai
Diabesity
Over the years understanding of Diabetes has shifted from pancreas to adipocytes (fat cells). Some times with normal insulin level or with more than normal insulin people present with diabetes. This phenomenon is medically known as insulin resistance.
Science has now discovered that virtually everything to do with weight loss for both men and women is controlled by one master hormone. This hormone that controls 100% of your body’s ability to burn fat is Leptin. Researchers recently discovered that women naturally have twice as much of the fat burning hormone Leptin in their body compared to men, thus making it difficult for women to lose weight compared to men. You become leptin-resistant by the same general mechanism that you become insulin-resistant – by continuous overexposure to high levels of the hormone. If you eat a diet that is high in sugar (particularly fructose), grains, and processed foods – the same type of diet that will also increase inflammation in your body – as the sugar gets metabolized in your fat cells, the fat releases surges in leptin.
Newer methods of managing diabetes and obesity –Diabesity is centered around this hypothesis which many times termed as central obesity ( white fat cells and brown fat cells ) cancer-boosting "white" fat cells to less harmful "brown" fat (a heat-generating type of fat that burns energy instead of storing it. while researchers investigate the pharmaceutical avenues to convert white fat cells to brown in an effort to reduce the potential for cancer growth, other research has already shown that this can likely be achieved through exercise.
Thus normal blood sugar with diet and exercise-lifestyle modification can increase your brown fat cells which in turn helps in reducing fat storage, reducing insulin resistance and leptin resistance and obesity.

Mr Mukund, Primary thing is blood sugars should be in excellent control like fasting close to 100 mg and PP around 150 to 160 mg and HbA1c%<7. Then you may think of taking certain drugs like PDE-5 inhibitors.

I am a registered dietitian and doctor who will help you in losing your weight. Let me know your food intake details. The best diet is one which is healthy and well balanced with foods from all the food groups, and one which is varied and that you can stick to weight loss on some diets can be dramatic in the short term, but there's more of a chance of rebound weight gain. Set yourself a realistic target and aim to lose between (0.5-1.0kg) a week I being a registered dietitian strongly accommodate the patients own preferences without the patient feeling that they are on a diet not compromising the weight management goals. Don't fall for self dieting or fad diets availiable online they have harmful effects in the long run, if you lose a lot of weight very quickly, you may not lose as much fat as you would with a more modest rate of weight loss. Instead, you might lose water weight or even lean muscle tissue, since it's hard to burn that many fat calories in a short period. I will need to carry out detailed assessment in your case, after assessing your personal challenges to weight loss, I will recommend a strategy to gradually change habits and attitudes that have sabotaged your past efforts. Reply back for private consultation for a holistic dietary therapy which includes diet, simple workouts and few medications.

My m In-law have a v low level of hemoglobin. 6. She is a diabetic also. How to improve hemoglobin level?
Diet- 1. According to Ayurveda, the body comes down with anemia (low hemoglobin) when the Pitta is disturbed (combination of fire and water / related with digestion). The best way to cure pitta is to clear out the intestines. There are a few ways to do this: running down a glass of milk with water, boiling it and drinking it lukewarm before going to sleep or coconut juice on an empty stomach are very good. 2. Fresh juice of wheat grass twice daily is very beneficial. 3. Fresh carrot and red beetroot can be sliced and taken with lemon juice on it. 4. Take 100 ml of spinach juice for 4 weeks. 5. Just two grams daily of black seed could result in reduced fasting blood sugar levels, along with decreased insulin resistance, and increased beta-cell function in the pancreas. Do not's- Fried food and sour food like dry cottage cheese shouldn’t be consumed. Avoid tea and coffee. Tea and coffee shouldn’t be taken during meals and intake must be reduced as they decrease the absorption of iron. Note- Vitamin C increases the absorption of iron. So if you are taking any medicines for increasing hemoglobin take it with lemon water. Add lemon in spinach juice, spinach sabji, beetroot juice etc. Yoga- Sarvangasana, SuryaNamaskar, Anulom-Vilom.
