Most people think that after being diagnosed with diabetes, they lose their freedom to eat tasty food. But this is not true, you can still enjoy the liberty of eating what you wish to eat. All you need is to maintain a balance over the food you eat and the exercises you do. When it comes to diabetes, we always hear about low glycemic index foods. Let us first learn more about glycemic index to understand the concept of this Type 2 Diabetic diet plan for normal weighing Indians (1600 calories) What is Glycemic Index? Glycemic index is the capacity of a particular food as to how quickly it can raise the blood sugar level. The foods which are quickly digested and release glucose immediately to raise the blood sugar levels have a high glycemic index. Where as those foods which take longer to digest and release glucose slowly in the blood stream are the ones with low glycemic index. Researches have proved that low glycemic index foods are better for the health of diabetics and those who are prone to diabetes. Constantly high levels of sugar in the blood vessel can damage these blood vessels causing greater threat and irreversible diseases of heart and other organs in the body. Glycemic index categorization – Glycemic – IndexDiabetes High70 and AboveTo be avoided completely Medium56 – 69Can be eaten in restriction Low55 and BelowShould be included liberally Glycemic Index of some common foods – FOODGI Roasted and salted chanas/bengal gram14 Cherries22 Skimmed milk32 Apples38 Pears38 Atta (MULTI GRAIN)40 Oranges44 Brown Rice50 Banana (INDIAN) 55 Basmati Rice (STARCH DRAINED)58 Honey (PURE) 58 Coca cola 68 White bread/PASTA 70 Watermelon72 Cornflakes84 SUGAR 100 Foods to be included in a Low Glycemic Diabetic Diet – 1] Bran (chokhar) can be added in your flours to reduce the GI and increase fiber. 2] whole wheat breads, Multi-grain breads with broken grains are healthier than refined flour breads. 3] Majority of vegetables are low in glycemic index and can be liberally used in day to day life. On must always eat variety of vegetables than repeating the same ones every day. 4] Include brown rice over white rice. 5] You can enjoy the whole wheat varieties of pastas and noodles occasionally. 6] salads should be a compulsory part of main meals. This provides fiber and helps in slow release of glucose in the blood stream.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Madam, if you are on adequate dosage of levothyroxine then TSH should have been maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. At that level all the symptoms are usually well in control. Since your TSH is still 9.93 mU/L, the dose is inadequate. Uncontrolled hypothyroidism will give all the symptoms complained. These symtoms will go away only when TSH is brought down to above mentioned level. Thanks.

CHEW MORE, EAT LESS: Studies show that the longer time you spend chewing, the lesser calories you consume. Chewing for longer prevents over-eating, by giving the brain more time to receive signals from the stomach that it is full. It is not only great for digesting, but it also helps in limiting your portion size. Try chewing your food 35 to 50 times per mouthful. DON' T SKIP BREAKFAST: No matter how late you are running to work, avoid missing breakfast. There is a reason why it is called the most important meal of the day. Your body (rather your brain) expects to be refueled a few times each day, so when you skip breakfast, you feel so hungry that when lunch time comes, you overeat or maybe choose foods items that are not the healthiest choices. Missing breakfast slows down your metabolism. More importantly, always eat your breakfast, within an hour of waking up, as your body has gone without food the entire night. CONCENTRATE ON YOUR FOOD: How many times has your mother reprimanded you to not talk, read or watch TV while eating food? Not without a reason. When you are multitasking during meal times, your brain isn' t focussing on the amount of food that you are consuming and you are more prone to piling on pounds. This doesn' t mean that you cannot enjoy a meal with your friends. You can do so, but just pay attention to what you are putting in your mouth! DON' T OVERCOOK YOUR MEALS: Overcooking food kills or reduces the number of nutrients your meal contains, and when you don' t get enough nutrients, you don' t feel satisfied and soon start to get junk food cravings. To combat this, try eating more raw foods like sushi and salads. Steam, bake, blanch or grill vegetables and grill or bake meat and fish. Avoid microwaving. FRUITS BEFORE MEALS: It is advisable to eat fruits at least 30 minutes before any heavy meal. This way, the fruits will digest quickly. Eating fruits on an empty stomach detoxifies your system and supplies you with a great deal of energy for losing weight. HAVE SMALLER MEALS, MORE OFTEN: Ideally, you should eat five to six times per day, with a two to three hour break between each meal or snack. Eating more frequently gets your metabolism going and keeps it working at an elevated level continuously throughout the day. But don' t use this rule as an excuse to overeat. AVOID EATING AFTER 8 PM: It' s good to eat your last meal before eight in the evening. This way you don' t land up binging on a snack before dinner time. If you find it hard to resist, have some herbal tea or brush your teeth after dinner immediately to switch your mind off from the idea of eating. THINK AND DRINK: While everyone knows it' s necessary to drink at least eight to 10 glasses of water, very few know when one should consume it. When you drink is as important as what you drink. If you drink water in-between meals, the liquid slows down digestion, diluting the acid in your stomach and so the nutrients from the food that you eat are not well absorbed. To avoid this try to drink water 15 minutes before or after a meal, and if you really need to drink while you eat, limit yourself to small sips only. Consult privately for personalised management.

Is there a cure for diabetes in ayurveda? at least some effective medicines to keep blood sugar under check. If so, what are they? is it true that most ayurvedic medicines contain steroid components?

Cure may not be possible at this age. But we can effectively control sugar levels. But I wish you would consult. We need to assess your body constitution before prescribing medicines. Medications for diabetes will not be same for all, it will differ based on their constitution. No. None of our medications contain steroids. Only quacks use steroids. Steroids are not part of ayurveda at all. Please do not go by rumors. Consult a qualified person and you are in safe hands.

My husband had monor diabetis but he is constantly losing body mass so wat should we do?

Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
I am a registered dietitian and doctor who will help you in losing your weight. Let me know your food intake details. The best diet is one which is healthy and well balanced with foods from all the food groups, and one which is varied and that you can stick to weight loss on some diets can be dramatic in the short term, but there's more of a chance of rebound weight gain. Set yourself a realistic target and aim to lose between (0.5-1.0kg) a week I being a registered dietitian strongly accommodate the patients own preferences without the patient feeling that they are on a diet not compromising the weight management goals. Don't fall for self dieting or fad diets availiable online they have harmful effects in the long run, if you lose a lot of weight very quickly, you may not lose as much fat as you would with a more modest rate of weight loss. Instead, you might lose water weight or even lean muscle tissue, since it's hard to burn that many fat calories in a short period. I will need to carry out detailed assessment in your case, after assessing your personal challenges to weight loss, I will recommend a strategy to gradually change habits and attitudes that have sabotaged your past efforts. Reply back for private consultation for a holistic dietary therapy which includes diet, simple workouts and few medications.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query Your information is very scanty. There is only mention about having diabetes, but no details about blood glucose levels & HbA1c%.Plus no other info on BP, lipid profile etc, so it is difficult to give any opinion why there is choking sensation. Please get a detailed blood check up, plus ECG and then come back. Thanks.

Hi Make sure your diabetes is under control as high blood sugar delays healing. Medications for your infection have to be tapered slowly before stopping. If it still does not settle you may need injectable antifungal.
