You are mentioning t1 dm and taking treatment with oral drugs, then the condition must be t2dm, because t1 can only be treated with insulin injections. What new product are you referring? can you be specific? if you are talking about sitagliptin or vildagliptin with metformin, this could be quite useful to you too. But please inform me your weight, height, hba1c and blood sugar levels then I can help you.

I am a patient of DM, IHD, PPM, HTN. taking regular medicines. What will be my ideal diet? My age is 72 years.
I hope every condition is under control. Ideal diet is not according to charts. You eat according to your constitution without comparing with others. No sugar or sweets, no bad fats, only good fats like a spoon of pure ghee/ butter and a katori of assorted nuts. Minimal salts and no packaged food as it contains lots of salt, being a preservative. Lemon juice with honey but cut down on other calories (just 30 cals in a spoon of honey) it helps to burn the fat and sugar. Fruits like guava, orange, apple can be had. Exercise like walking also burns sugar and fats.

My dad has diabetes. Can he use fenfuro capsules. I read a lot in internet but not sure. Please suggest.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
My dad has diabetes.  Can he use fenfuro capsules. I read a lot in internet but not sure. Please suggest.
Without other medicines diabetes cannot be controlled with Fenfuro .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.

Hello good to hear you are on physical activity and happy to hear you have reduced weight. Keep up the exercise going. It looks like all are in control when you take medicine. This condition has to be maintained when you stop using medicine. So, I suggest, consult your personal doctor and then based on his recommendation you follow the same. We know heavy medication leads to side effects. Please add protein with green tea, fiber and multivitamins supplements in your diet. Let me help you with more information. Have a nice day.

Dear since you have diabetes you need exercises to keep fit and control your sugar. Since you have knee pain best exercise for your problem is cycling. Do buy a stationary bicycle and exercise for at least 20-30 minutes daily and then twice a day.

Yog, walking 3 to 4 km and exercise is very helpful with reducing fatty and rich sugar diet. Alone dieting is not good for health for reducing weight. A dietitian can advise you about your diet.

Vaishnaviji, For treating hypothyroidism are taking thyroxine tablets regularly in prescribed dosage? If hypothyroidism is not controlled then cold intolerance is quite common. Plus feeling of weakness and early fatigue also occur and there may constant increase in weight. I am sure you are following the instructions given regarding dosing of thyroxine tablets, it must be taken early morning on empty stomach, there after nothing to be taken for 2 hours. This has to be meticulously adhered to. Plus avoid soya beans, soya containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts and coffee. Consume more green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for making chapati and rotl. Plus exercise regularly that will increase your fitness level. If you have any doubts please come in a private conversation where I will be able to give specific guidelines.
