Goodbye Diabetes !!!!!

Goodbye Diabetes !!!!!

You can overcome your diabetes by gaining some knowledge about what to eat and what not.

1)Completely stop consumption of sugary foods, artificial sweetness, canned juices and any other sweet preparation.

2)Start substituting your wheat flour with bajra/jowar flour/whole wheat flour to reduce your glucose intake.

3)Include a plate raw veggies before your meal to increase your fibre content as it helps to lower down your sugar levels.

4)Substitute your meals with red or brown rice instead of white rice to increase fiber.

5)Flaxseeds (not to roast) are an excellent source of fibre n omega 3 fatty acids n are known to reduce your glucose levels naturally.

6)Cinnamon tea is one of best remedies to reduce your insulin dosage as it contains chromium pincolate which diverts the glucose from the food we get to the muscle cells n must be taken after dinner.

7)Drinking of kokam water before meals (soaked in water for two hours)
Helps to bring down your sugar levels and is a natural cure for diabetes.

8)Fruits that have high glycemic index are not recommended like mango, chikkoo, custard apple etc

9)Lastly exercise for at least 50mins a day is a key to achieve good health.

For a more detailed diet chart and how to plan your menus for issues like diabetes, thyroid, anemia, obesity, gastritis, pregnancy, gastric ulcers consult privately.

To gain weight you should eat more calories than you burn. Plus not only you have to eat calorie dense food but you have to keep in mind that what you are eating is healthy too. In the process of weight gain you do not want to put weight in an uneven manner and look unhealthy rather than looking bright and healthy. 1. Start with changing your lifestly. Start working out if you are not active. The biggest myth that prevails now a days is that thin people do not need to work out. This is wrong. When you challenge your body, it is forced to grow. But this growth can only be possible if you are eating enough food to let the body absorb and grow in size and muscles. 2. Eat Healthy – Stop drinking and smoking too much if you are indulged in it. Limit your intake of junk food, pepsi, sugary stuff etc. Do not at all starve yourself. Make it a habit to eat something healthy every 3 hours. This means you have to eat 6 small meals in a day. Your Daily food intake should ideally consist of – a. Have plenty of nuts, dry fuits and seeds. Almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, figs, dates and raisins. They are full of healthy fats needed by a human body. b. Good amount of fruits and vegetables – Bananas, apples, pomegranate, green leafy vegetables. Fruits and vegetables helps in absorption of food in the body and together, completes your daily nutrition need. c. If you are a non- vegetarian - Eat eggs, chicken etc. d. Eat whole grains – Try to have multi grains spread throughout the day. Wheat, brown rice, oats, bajra, daliya etc should be taken in multiple meals in a day. e. Eat Sprouts – Chana and moong which are full of protein and nutrients. f. You can supplement your diet with good quality multi-vitamin capsules. If you are lacking in protein, you can buy a high quality whey protein and have it with banana shake twice a day. g. You can take natural food items like wheat grass which is full of essential nutrients which helps in weight gain. Try to be patient while you are on the process of weight gain. Results take time to show. Just follow the regimen of weight gain religiously and you will soon start seeing the results.

Dear your sugars are in the borderline range for diabetes as also your uric acid in the high range. Pl. Consult a diabetologist. You can start glyciphage sr 500 twice a day after breakfast & dinner. Avoid non veg foods, brinjal, cauliflowers, mushrooms, spinach, asparagus, chickoo, custardapple, maida & bakery products, tea, coffe & alcohol. Use elovera cream by glenmark pharma for your hands & feet. It will help you in psoriasis.

Dear Lybrate User, One of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as DIABETES MELLITUS. Once a patient is diagnosed with Diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. However, the patient does not need to take medicine unless his/her Post. Prandial Blood Sugar level reaches 200. If Post. Prandial Blood Sugar level reaches 200 then patient can take Homoeopathic Mother Tincture GYMNEMA SYLVESTRA Q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Along with intake of medicines the patient need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. In order to decrease the intake of carbohydrate in diet the patient should avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc

Life seems to have no purpose. It seems to be a cycle between fertilization and cell death/degradation. Everything around seems to be a construct aka make believe. What activities of the mind and body would give me positive energy and sense of meaningful purpose?

I am 38/male with type 2 diabetes. My sugar was at 250 after meals even when taking 500 mg metformin after each meal (total 1000 mg a day). Doctor has increased the dose to 1000 mg after each meal now. Sugar level have come down to 125 after meals. I want to ask if 2000 mg a day of metformin along with diet control and exercise can lower the sugar level too much i.e. Even below the normal level?

Since many factors are involved like diet, exercise and the individual persons body, it needs continuous (regular) monitoring by the doctor along with the investigations. The good thing would be to control the sugar with a disciplined and healhty lifestyle along with medicines as suggested by the doctor. The dosage of the medicine or the type of medicine can be changed by the doctor depending on the overall health condition and the reports. So keep going for the follow up and follow all the good habits with determination and enjoy good health. You can also learn Yoga which is very effective to balance all the aspects of health and keep you fit and energetic.

Please Give names of diabetes type 1 tablets in allopathic. My range is fasting 189 PP 297.

Please Give names of diabetes type 1 tablets in allopathic. My range is fasting 189 PP 297.
Hello, If the person has T1 diabetes, then the only treatment is taking Insulin injections for lifetime. There are no oral drugs available. The reason being in these persons there is No Insulin production by Beta ells of pancreas. Since Insulin is needed for glucose, protein and fat metabolism constantly, then it has to be supplemented every day from outside. So it is said in Type 1 DM Insulin is needed for treatment and for survival of the patient. Thanks.
