I am 35 M diabetic. My current dose is glimpeide 1 mg + metformin 1000 BD.
Still it is 170 fasting pls advice.
For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

I have sugar. My Age is 51 years. Please advise where I can eat everything and sugar remain in control.
If you have confirmed diabetes, then treatment with antidiabetic medicine is a must, which I am sure must be on. Please tell me what are current fasting and pp sugar levels and hba1c%, because unless diabetes (blood sugar levels) is under excellent control it is difficult to avoid long term problems of various complications. As regards" eating everything" for a diabetic person there will always be restrictions in food intake like avoiding sweets, direct sugar, deep fried foods and certain fruits like mango, chikoo, banana & grapes. Even your food intake has to in relation to body's requirement based on ideal body weight. (ideal body weight = height in cms - 100 x 0.9 = kgs). If you are a sedentary type of person then calories allowed would be 25 kcal /kg / day. So far a diabetic person restricted food intake is the only choice.

I' m a 45yo insulin dependent diabetic male. Am on lantus (once a day, 18 units) and lispro (humalog) pre-meals. Also, take a blood thinner-statin combo (ecosprin av 75). My question: should I take my insulin shots (lantus, lispro or both) before my exercise or after? what should be the target blood sugar before exercise? I play badminton or squash for 40 min every morning. I ask this because I find my blood sugar high even an hour after exercise. I don' t take insulin before exercise and have a light meal half hour before it. An egg and two toast or an egg and a banana. Let me know. Thanks.

Take your insulin in routine. Homolog before meals n lantus bedtime. What is more important you should check your sugar before n after exercise. If it is persistently high you can increase the dose of lantus by 4. 6 units. That won't increase the risk of hypoglycemia but if add homolog before exercise, chances of hypo will increase.

I don't know what medicines are you taking? how old is your diabetes? but if you want to control sugar with diet only then you should have one chapatti in breakfast, one fruit mid morning, 2 chapattis in lunch, one katori dal, one katori vegetable, one cup tea plus 2_3 marrie biscuits and 2 chapatti along with dal and veg in dinner. But alone this won't control, you will have to walk one hour morning and one hour evening. About other answers about diabetes is, if you don't control it, you can suffer from complications like heart disease, kidney disease, eye disease and nerves disease, which once occur then there is noug treatment. So control your diabetes with diet or drugs or exercise or all of three.

what is your weight ? pcod is the most common endocrine disorder nowadays and it is a lifestyle disorder. there is usually obesity and insulin resistance associated with it. the complex entity is known as metabolic syndrome. the treatment lies in changing your lifestyle ,eating foods of low g.i. index (low calorific value) and doing exercises to lose weight. try to start them (if not already) and maintain your bmi at 22 as it can only help . as for thyroid , it is usually not curable , so you have to take medicines for that.

lybrate-user, You will have to continue taking the same dose of thyroxine for some more time. Then check TSH after 6 to 8 weeks, if level is lower than the present then a small reduction in dose can be done. But the treatment has to continue for lifetime. Thanks.

Hello, even if you have diabetes, it is possible to join a gym and build muscles. Based on your sugar level, weight and extent of exercise your diet should be based. But first thing is to achieve a strict blood sugar control with fasting closer to 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% < 6.8. Then you will have to take extra proteins to build muscles.

If I take boiled fenugreek early morning empty stomach is causes reduced sugar levels in my body? Kindly guide me.
Dear Patient Fenugreek seeds (trigonella foenum graecum) are high in soluble fibre, which helps lower blood sugar by slowing down digestion and absorption of carbohydrates. This suggests they may be effective in treating people with diabetes. But it is not alternative to medicines that control diabetes. Regards.
