How to control sugar level in blood? And which food is better to eat sugar patient. Sugar level in pasting is 132.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
How to control sugar level in blood? And which food is better to eat sugar patient. Sugar level in pasting is 132.
Mr. lybrate-user, Fasting glucose 132 mg / 100 ml, is showing there is diabetes. It is better to check after food glucose & HbA1c% to confirm diabetes and also to decide on type of treatment to be given. First thing is to start appropriate treatment and simultaneously take a properly planned restricted diet and exercise daily for at least 1 hour. A person with diabetes should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, pastries, bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks, junk foods, fructose corn syrup containing foods. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits about 100 g a day. If you need specific guidelines in controlling blood glucose levels then come in a private conversation with following details: current fasting, Pp glucose levels, HbA1c%, diet pattern and extent of daily exercise being done. Thanks.

Calcium Supplements Interfere with Thyroid treatment

Calcium supplements — or antacids containing calcium — can interfere with the absorption of levothyroxine (Synthroid, Unithroid, others), a synthetic form of thyroid hormone.

This interference happens chiefly if you take levothyroxine and calcium supplements at or near the same time. You can avoid this problem with the following steps:

Don't take calcium supplements or antacids at the same time you take levothyroxine.
Take any products containing calcium at least four hours before or after taking levothyroxine.
Other supplements — especially those containing iron — also can interfere with absorption of levothyroxine, as can certain foods and medications. If your doctor prescribes levothyroxine, be sure to tell him or her about all the other drugs and supplements you're taking.

Duffusely calcified wall with echogenic lumen suggestive of thrombosis in left distal posterior tibial artery with collateral reformation distal to occlusion. What should I do ?

Keep your diabetes under perfect control. As far as blockage is concerned treatment depends upon the symptoms. If there is numbness, pain in the foot, foot is colder than the other side, or the foot is becoming weak. Then you need treatment. It may be with medicines or in sever cases surgery may be needed.

DEAR, sir/mam I am sugar patient, I want to recover quickly tell me the way, how am I improve quickly.

BHMS
Homeopath,
DEAR, sir/mam I am sugar patient, I want to recover quickly tell me the way, how am I improve quickly.
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. Take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnema sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Also you need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. Also you need to take a low carbohydrate rich diet. Avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

He is a Type 1 juvenile diabetic with uncontrolled disease. If he is already kept on Insulin his doses need to be re planned. He needs better management under the supervision of a diabetologist.

since 2000 I am a sugar patient I am taking insulin but my glucose level is fasting 150 and pp not less than 250 what I do please advice me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Diabetes affects all organs in the body? eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, infact, from from toe to hair. 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) 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.
