Protection from diabetes might be as simple as taking vitamins
Protection from diabetes might be as simple as taking vitamins.

Vitamin D improves glucose tolerance and helps the body to secrete insulin. If you maintain right level of vitamin d then it can cut diabetes risk by up to 50 percent.
Get your levels checked.
People who have vitamin D levels below 30 ng/ml should consult doctor for its treatment course and/or get more sunlight to increase levels in blood.

Dear , though your fbs and ppbs are normal your hba1c is high. That means that your average sugar control is poor and that could be one of the reasons for weakness. Are you taking any medications for diabetes?

I am 29 year old and my back is painful in the morning (spine) but after taking bath it reduces pain, year ago my knee and hip was painful doctor told me that your uric acid level is increase he prescribed mi gout check, pan 40 for 4 month but from last 3 months my back is so painful.My uric acid level is increases.

There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed to protect against future flares or prevent gout or uric acid problems from occurring in the first instance: maintain a high fluid intake (2-4 liters a day) avoid alcohol maintain a healthy body weight eat a balanced diet limit fish, meat and poultry intake. If attempting to lose weight, avoid low-carbohydrate diets. If carbohydrate intake is insufficient, the body is unable to burn its own fat properly, releasing substances called ketones into the bloodstream. This results in a condition called ketosis that can increase the level of uric acid in the blood. It is most important to avoid foods that are high in purines, to ensure that the levels of uric acid in the blood do not get too high. Here is a list of high-purine foods to be wary of: beef kidneys brains dried beans and peas liver mackerel mushrooms lose some weight by walking or other exercise, avoid meats and get always be on a prescribed diet as prescribed by a registered dietitian. I am a registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator and a doctor, consult privately for detailed treatment plans using diet and medications.

Your fbs is quite normal. The slightly high ppbs could be because of various reasons. Some of the common ones are: 1) the food you eat; both quality & quantity matter 2) over how much time you have it 3) what you have along with it 4) exercise 5) time of taking meds try to find out which of these matter to you & the solution becomes easier.

What is diabetes. What are the different types of diabetes. What precautions should be taken.

BHMS
Homeopath,
What is diabetes. What are the different types of diabetes. What precautions should be taken.
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. 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 blood stream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. 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 gymnemna 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.

How high is the TSH. If it is less than 10 and the T3, T4 are normal, it is possible that you have sub-clinical hypothyroidism. Treatment will vary depending on the clinical picture.

Mr. lybrate-user , You have mentioned about the drugs being taken for diabetes, but no dosage. There is no mention about fasting, PP glucose level and HbA1c%, so it is not clear whether diabetes is well controlled at all. At your age it is very essential to achieve a very strict blood glucose control with fasting closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. If not then you are inviting long term complications of diabetes much early. As regards dietary advice, unless all the details are known, it is difficult to suggest a specific diet. However, please avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks, sweet corn syrup containing products and food stuff made up of maida. Avoid alcohol and smoking completely. As regards lifestyle regular one hour exercise a day is most important. Brisk walking is good enough. But if you can jog or run please do. Thanks.

My father have diabetes from 2 years.what should he do?

PGDD, RD
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
My father have diabetes from 2 years.what should he do?
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.
