French Fries are Worst for Diabetics

French Fries are Worst for Diabetics
french fries are worst for diabetics:

French fries as" little carbohydrate sponges soaked in fat" at 25 grams of fat, 500 calories, and over 63 grams of carbohydrates, a large serving of french fries can wreak havoc on blood sugar. The american diabetes association notes that starchy foods like potatoes, corn, and peas are" great sources of vitamins, minerals, and fiber" but recommends skipping those with added fat or sodium. You can test your blood sugar two hours after eating to find out what effect any particular food has on your blood sugar.

Have this instead: fries are usually the default option when ordering a burger or sandwich, but most restaurants will swap in fresh fruit or a side salad if you ask.

Hello, Thanks for the query. In the first month of pregnancy the mentioned sugar levels are high. This needs to be controlled, as ideal blood glucose level recommended during pregnancy is between 90 to 120 mg through out he day. Please get a Oral Glucose Tolerance Test done with 100 g glucose immediately and look at the results. Following table tells the details :Abnormal blood values for a 3-hour 100-gram oral glucose tolerance test are: Fasting: greater than 95 mg/dL (5.3 mmol/L) 1 hour: greater than 180 mg/dL (10.0 mmol/L) 2 hour: greater than 155 mg/dL (8.6 mmol/L) 3 hour: greater than 140 mg/dL (7.8 mmol/L) If results are in this pattern then treatment is required, that too with Insulin injection. This test is essential to correctly detect if there is problem is existing and if there is a need to start the treatment. Do not delay. After the test if you wish do come back with results, then I will be able to guide. But it will be good if you come in a private conversation as then only a prescription can be given. Thanks.

You should follow this diet chart to control & treat the diabetes. * in morning, drink 1-2 glass of luke warm water empty stomach & walk for 15 minutes to detoxy the body.

My mother was treated for bilateral pulmonary embolism and during post discharge regular intake of warfarin for 6 months suggested. She is diabetic and also bedridden due to minor compression fracture in backbone as well as two minor cracks on pelvic bone. Due to warfarin intake blood in urine observed followed by urine infection further requiring intensive care on hospitalization. Is there any proven substitute for warfarin either in ayurveda or else homeopathy?

Your mother has multiple problems. 1. Pulmonary embolism, for which she needs to take anticoagulants. There are substitute drugs available (if she is having problems with warfarin). These drugs are either in injectable form (low molecular weight heparin injections) or tablets (newer anticoagulants). The safety profile of these drugs is better than warfarin and the do not need strict monitering like warfarin does. 2. Backbone compression and pelvic bone cracks could be due to osteoporosis (weak bones, sply in females after menopause). Osteoporosis in itself needs treatment (calcium, vit D and specific drugs). So discuss with your doctor in detail about osteoporosis, and secondary prevention of thrombosis (blood clotting and embolism).

A lesser-known side effect of Diabetes is increased risk of hair loss.It can be directly or indirectly related to Diabetes.

Hair loss can start with beginning of Diabetes.Many times it Diabetes warning sign.Anyone with unusual hair loss should talk to a doctor.

POTENTIAL CAUSES OF HAIR LOSS

1.Diabetes causes damage to the small blood vessels thus limits oxygen and nutrients reaching the the scalp.Undernourished hair follicles (roots) gets weaken and loose their grip causing hair loss

2.Diabetes can cause fluctuations hormone production.This imbalance of hormones affects the growth cycle of hair.

3.Diabetes weakens immune system.In such situation scalp is more susceptible to fungal and bacterial infections leading hair loss.

4.Diabetes can slow the body’s cell regeneration time, disturbing the growth cycle of hair.

5.Illness, stress or hormonal fluctuations can cause hair to enter the resting phase, leading to diffuse thinning of the hair.

6. The hair loss could be caused by conditions not related or indirectly related to Diabetes.For example Thyroid dysfunction.

Hair loss becomes permanent when the hair follicles are destroyed, so early diagnosis and treatment are important.

WHAT YOU CAN DO

1.Good Diabetes control.This allows hormones to balance, immune system to strengthen, and the hair growth cycle to get back on track.

If you notice unusual hair loss, see your Diabetologist Doctor to determine whether the shedding is related to Diabetes.
If the shedding is a medication side effect, a prescription change is the obvious solution.

SOME HAIR CARE TIPS

1.Use hair brushes with widely spaced bristles

2.Minimal use of hair dryers and curling irons.

3.Avoid braids or ponytails that pull on the scalp.

4.Avoid products with harsh chemicals such as perms, hair straighteners, or dyes.

5.Protect the hair from sun, wind, and chlorine exposure.

6.Eat a well-balanced diet.

7.Exercise regularly to promote optimal circulation

8.Use relaxation techniques for stress reduction.

Hair shedding can diminish self-esteem and sometimes leads to social anxiety or depression. So act wisely and smartly.

Hi, my grandmother these days have too much problem of cough, bp high, sugar what can we do please help me.
Mr Ashmit, Her diabetes should be brought under good control with proper drugs, diet and some physical activity. Depending on the cause cough also should be controlled with anti cough drugs/syrups/ antibiotics. If you want specific suggestions or prescription then come in a private conversation with details like fasting and PP sugar levels, HbA1c%, dietary pattern and extent of exercise, where I will be able to guide properly.

Type 1 diabetes is generally caused due to auto immune changes in the body whereas Type 2 diabetes is mostly caused by genetic defects. In type 1 diabetes, the body attacks cells in the pancreas that produce insulin. Type 1 diabetes is generally more prevalent in men as compared to women.

Type 1 diabetes is also partly inherited. However, Type 1 diabetes generally needs a trigger such as an infection or something similar that aggravates the body?s reactions to insulin.

Steroids and stress are generally known to be causes of Type 2 diabetes other than inherited genetic defects.

Obesity and a sedentary lifestyle are among the most common causes of type 2 diabetes. Obesity leads to a development of insulin resistance in the body. Insulin resistance occurs in non-obese people as well and many obese people do not develop insulin resistance. It is important that you keep in mind that while obesity in itself may not be a cause for diabetes it is a contributing factor that drastically increases the risk of developing diabetes.
