Dos and Don'ts For Diabetics!

Dos and Don'ts For Diabetics!

If you are suffering from diabetes, then you would slowly become conscious of the dos and don’ts of this disease. While the don’ts of this disease involve certain criteria which you might find illogical and morose, in the long run they would help you to keep the diabetes in control; lest it further aggravates adverse health conditions. Thus, here are the most important dos and don’ts of this disease.

Do’s:

  1. You must eat at regular intervals. But this does not mean that you can eat as much as you want. When you suffer from diabetes you have to follow a controlled diet.
  2. Exercise is an important way to maintain your health and fitness. This does not mean making frequent visits to the gymnasium, but rather doing some light exercises like jogging or even taking a daily walk around the park.
  3. Losing weight is an essential parameter of maintaining your health while you suffer from diabetes. The weight gained during this period would affect other parts of the body in an adverse way.
  4. Control your sugar intake. Diabetes is caused due to excessive sugar levels in the body. Further, many of us have a sweet tooth which can prove to be fatal during diabetes. Sugar levels need to be minutely monitored and kept in check.

Don’ts:

  1. You must not binge eat. Eating at regular intervals of time is generally preferred but binge eating would result into accumulating of fats which, in turn, would make you gain weight. This needs to be avoided during diabetes.
  2. Do not skip regular check ups. At times, you might get tired of your regular check-ups and blood tests. But these are carried out to control your level of diabetes. If diabetes is not controlled it would affect other body parts and especially the eyes.
  3. This might be sad news if you are a coffee lover. But diabetic patients are generally asked to give up coffee. The caffeine in it does not suit the dietary requirements of those who suffer from diabetes.

These are some of the essential rules that you would have to follow once you fall prey to diabetes. While at first they might seem like torture, as time flies, you would get more used to it and would accept it as a natural part of your daily life. These basic guidelines are further elaborated on any medical website. Moreover, they would be listed down by your medical practitioner once you go for regular check-ups during the tenure of your disease.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

First of all you should continue thyroid drugs and ensure that it is controlled. Weight gain is another problem that causes mens irregularities. So, your first treatment is in your hand- weight loss, weight loss and weight loss (diet and exercise). Some of my patients are doing very well simply by weight loss without any drugs. If despite weight loss (when you are sincerely trying), the problem persists, you should take drugs after consulting doctors

Diabetes - How it Affects Your Skin?

Diabetes - How it Affects Your Skin?

Diabetes is a serious disease, but if properly managed is not life threatening. Diabetes can be explained as the body’s inability to regulate insulin production. This leads to fluctuations in blood sugar levels. This disease affects every part of the body including the skin. For some people, a rash is among the first few symptoms of diabetes. Most diabetic patients suffer from a skin condition at some point or the other. Here are a few common skin ailments that affect diabetic patients.

  1. Bacterial infections: A weakened immune system makes diabetics more vulnerable to bacterial infections than normal. These bacterial infections can be typically seen in the form of styles on the eyelid, boils, carbuncles and nail infections. They usually make the skin around the infected area red, inflamed and painful. Most skin bacterial skin ailments can be treated with antibiotic creams and pills.
  2. Fungal infections: One of the most common fungal infections that diabetic patients suffer from is known as Candida albicans. This ailment is characterised by a red, itchy rash that is surrounded by small blisters. It is caused by yeast-like fungus and usually found in moist areas like the armpits or between the toes. Other fungal infections that affect diabetic patients include ringworm, jock itch, athlete’s foot and vaginal yeast infections.
  3. Itchy skin: Diabetics often suffer from itchiness that could be triggered by yeast infections, dry skin and poor circulation. People with poor circulation will find their calves and feet to be the itchiest part of the body, While poor circulation and yeast infections may need medical attention, dry skin can be easily treated by keeping the skin internally and externally hydrated along with the use of a mild moisturising soap.
  4. Vitiligo: This is a skin condition where the melanin producing cells in the skin are destroyed. This leads to a patchy appearance that can be typically seen on the hands, face and chest. Vitiligo is considered to be an autoimmune disease like diabetes and has no known cause or cure. Sunscreen is a must for diabetic patients suffering from vitiligo as the unpigmented skin has no protection from UV radiation.
  5. Diabetic blisters: Patients with severe diabetes may also suffer from diabetic blisters. These blisters usually occur on the extremities of the body and resemble blisters caused by burns. They are usually pain-free and heal on their own.
  6. Disseminated granuloma annular: This condition is characterised by a ring or arc shaped areas on the skin. They can usually be seen on the fingers and ears but may also occur in the chest and abdomen. This rash may be reddish or skin coloured. Medical treatment is not generally required for this condition. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an endocrinologist.

Hi, You can ask your mother to follow few exercises for shaping the fatty arms: -Weight lifting: You can use a 2 liter cold drink bottle or a water bottle for this exercise. If you have a pair of dumbbells at home it works out just fine. The aim is to reach out for something which weighs around one kilo. Hold that item with both your hands and lift it over your head. Your arms should be straight, as this is your starting position. Now lower the weight, by taking it behind your back. You need to reach it as low as you can. Make sure that you don’t hurt yourself. Bring up the weight above your head, again. The slower you move your arms, the more toned your arms will get. It is important to keep your upper arms close to your head and ears. Also try to practice this exercise in front of the mirror if you can, it will help you improve the style. You need to do 3 sets of 20 reps, which means you will move the item 60 items above your head. After every set you can take a rest of one minute. -Scissors: It is one of the best cardio workouts to lose weight. This exercise as mentioned in the name resembles a scissors being opened and closed. You need to begin by standing straight and lifting your arms to shoulder height, in front of you. Stretch your arms to the side and bring them back to your front, the right hand should overlap the left. This resembles an open scissors. You need to stretch them to the side again and bring them back to the front. This time your left arm should overlap your right. This is a complete rep and this exercise needs to be done in 3 sets of 10 reps every day. -Arm circles: You can hold two 600 ml water bottles in two hands while doing the arm circles. Stand with your feet placed shoulder width apart and arms extend straight to your sides, raised at shoulder height. Now, do 50 small circles with your hands by rotating them in the forward direction. Then switch to 50 small backward circles. The backward and forward arm movement tones all the muscles of the arms including the triceps, biceps, shoulders and back muscles as well.
