2 types of dates are available in stores. One type is with full juice, the other one is juice extracted and dried type which is a bit hard to remove outer skin. I want to know whether the dried ones give the same benefits like juicy ones as they are too sweet and may not be good for borderline sugar persons.

Hi Dates are sweet, whether it's dry or fresh. Dried dates are deliberately dehydrated to remove their moisture and increase their shelf life. It is rich in calcium, iron and fibre when compared to fresh juicy dates. However it's carbohydrate content is high and hence high in calories. Having 1 or 2 fresh dates once in few days can be beneficial but with a good control of diabetes.

You may feel like resting, but moving is good for your back. Exercises for lower back pain can strengthen back, stomach, and leg muscles. They help support your spine, relieving back pain. Always ask your health care professional before doing any exercise for back pain. Depending on the cause and intensity of your pain, some exercises may not be recommended and can be harmful.

Hormone based medicines once started will be continued for ever. You can't afford to give gap ever or can't adjust dose without endocrinologists' opinion. Alternatively herbo mineral ayurveda medicine is a better choice. People do not like slow response but what if fast acting med is to be taken for lifetime! for complete and specific treatment, pl send reports and doctors diagnostic opinion.

Diabetes: Know About It to Better Control It

Diabetes is usually associated with the insulin and glucose absorption of the body. This disease can be of several types and is often referred to as Diabetes Mellitus. It is basically a digestive disorder where the body is not able to transport the glucose absorbed from the food to the cells, due to a lack of proper insulin production. This makes the blood sugar level rise. This is a long term disease that involves metabolism and an imbalance in the blood sugar levels of the body. While type 2 diabetes is the most common with 90% of all cases suffering from this type, type 1 affects roughly 10% of the diabetes patients.

Read on to know more about diabetes so that you can control it better:

Type 1 Diabetes: In this kind of diabetes, the body does not produce sufficient insulin, which makes it produce symptoms like increased thirst, frequent urination, blurry vision due to changes in the lens of the eyes and vomiting as well as deep breathing for patients who have reached a very advanced or severe stage. The best treatment plan for this kind of diabetes includes tweaking one's diet to cut out excess fat, salt and sugar. Further, the patient will have to ensure that the glucose levels are monitored and regulated with insulin injections and regular blood tests.

Type 2 Diabetes: When the cells of the body do not react appropriately to insulin it can lead to malfunction. This is a progressive disease that is known to get worse with the passage of time. Patients suffering from this disease usually have to take insulin tablets on a daily basis. The symptoms include fatigue, blurred vision and excessive hunger. The best treatment is to exercise regularly and follow a healthy diet plan. This disease can also increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases and other serious ailments.

Gestational Diabetes: This kind of diabetes affects expecting mothers. If the pregnant patient has high amount of glucose in the body, there is not enough insulin that can transport all the excess glucose to the cells. This can lead to gestational diabetes. Diet and exercise are the best ways to control this condition. It may also lead to complications for the baby at the time of birth.

Prediabetes: Many patients who are suffering from diabetes type 2 often suffer from a condition called prediabetes where the cells of the body start developing insulin resistance. This phase also implies some amount of damage to the heart and circulatory system.

Treating diabetes on time is a matter of regulating and keeping a check on your blood sugar levels even as you maintain your healthy weight and lifestyle with a good diet and exercise.

Classical Homeopathic remedies for diabetes include Uranium Nitricum, Phosphoric Acid, Syzygium Jambolanum and Cephalandra Indica. These medications are either used stand alone or along with other medications as adjunct. Homeopathic medicines look to cure the inherent disorder, and do not have any side effects, thus are safe for diabetics.

His diabetes is not properly controlled. Diabetes affects all organs in the body ? Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient should be under proper guidance for regular follow up and advice. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose ? SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & lifestyle.

I want to know that what is the between treatment of a diabetes patient forty five years old.
Mr Prashant, I am unable to understand your question. However, I am giving some explanation which may help. For T2 DM (which is usually seen older persons) can be treated by oral anti diabetic drugs or with Insulin injections or at times both are used together for better control. In addition exercise and diet control are also equally important. Because extra weight and inactivity both contribute to diabetes. Plus it is necessary to avoid sweets, direct sugar, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Also person has refrain from red meat, egg yolk, alcohol and smoking.

Hello, It would have been better if actual blood glucose levels were mentioned similarly HbA1c% value. If one has diabetes, then a very limited quantity of dry fruits can be consumed. Manuka (resin) contains good amount of sugar. Thanks.

I want to know the perfect diet for diabetic patient for breakfast for lunch and the dinner.

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
I want to know the perfect diet for diabetic patient for breakfast for lunch and the dinner.
Mr. lybrate-user, There is nothing like perfect diet, because our food habits are totally indivudualised, hence diet recommendations also have to be specific to each individual. In India food habits differ widely, for example in north wheat flour, rajma, black dal, paneer and ghee intake is much higher. In Rajasthan, Gujrat food is much different. Bengal fish dominates the intake along with rice. In South Indian food rice varieties are plenty. In Central India habit is different. So there can not be a single perfect diet. It has to be based on your current habits, weight (ideal body weight), extent of exercise, need for weigh reduction and blood glucose levels. Thanks.
