What is the regular food as medicine for diabetics percent and also for blood pressure percent?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
What is the regular food as medicine for diabetics percent and also for blood pressure percent?
Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult 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 & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch personally.

Mr. Lybrate-user, with 116 kg weight you have a grade 3 obesity, that is the major problem. It is possible that uncontrolled hypothyroidism may have been the reason for triggering and increasing obesity. But now your primary objective is tackle obesity. For that hypothyroidims has to be strictly controlled with tsh levels should be maintained between 3 to 4 milli units / l. Then there has to be strict dietary control to be observed and regular exercise regimen. You should aim at cutting about 8 to 10 % of present weight. It is possible, only if you are prepared mentally. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, When on treatment for hypothyroidism, it is necessary to bring TSH down to 3 to 4 mU/L, then only one will be freem from all the troublesome symptoms. Hence, if TSH is 6.5 mU/L, then it should be reduced to the value mentioned above. Therefore, there is a need to increase the dose of thyroxine being taken now. After increasing the dose TSH should be checked 6 weeks later to see if desired level is reached. Thanks.

According to experts now it is compulsory to screen every woman who wants to become pregnant for thyroid function. Because pregnancy increases the possibility of getting hypothyroidism. If a lady is having hyothyroidism then conception is unlikely to occur. If it does occur then the fetal development is affected, out come of pregnancy can be bad. The new born may have low iq.

It appears to me that you have some suppressed anger. If your reports are clear and if you still have chest pain then please understand that your suppressed negative emotions are affecting your body. Please talk to a Counsellor. The Counsellor will help you to understand your hidden negative feelings and will also help you to deal with it. Once you give healthy outlet to your negative feelings you will feel better and will be able to enjoy your life.

Since you have both essential hypertension and t2dm, this itself can make you feel tired, unless both conditions are in control. Your bp is high, it should ideally be 130/80. You have not mentioned hba1c level which tell about long term control of blood sugars. I also want to know medications taken and amount of exercise that you are doing. Your bmi is 27.14kg/m2 which is high (normal 23kg/m2). Plus do you use tobacco in any form and alcohol also. Please give this information which will help me advise you better.

Diet for DM HTN

Homeopath,
Diet for DM HTN

Diet plan for DM and HTN


 Food should be distributed into small frequent feeds. The days requirement should be well distributed between the different meals. Skipping a meal or fasting is not really advisable. 

As far as possible, the patient should maintain ideal body weight. Considering the height, weight, activity, age and sex of the individual the days calorie requirement can be calculated. Of the total calories 55-65% should come from cho's 15-20% from protein and the remaining 15-20% from fats. 

General instructions to be followed:

Different cereals contain almost the same amount of cho and so the quantity of cereal consumed should be noted rather than the type consumed. 

Whole grain cereals are better, preferred for their fibre content and satiety value.

Rice gruel if consumed, should be done so by discarding the rice water, and adding hot water. 

When consuming wheat porridge, it is better to have it with pulses than using coconut milk in it. 

Include whole pulses in the diet, soya products help to reduce cholesterol. Sprouted pulses are more nutrious. 

Fish can be included in the diet, in the curry form. Fried fish is the best avoided. Shell fishes like prawns, lobsters etc should be avoided. 

Poultry (without skin) can be used occasionally. Beef, pork, mutton, liver etc should be avoided by cardiac patients. Trim off excess fat (if any) before cooking. 

Egg yolk has to be avoided by individuals with hyperlipidemia. 

Milk and its products need not to be used more than 400 ml/ day. Use skimmed milk whenever possible, otherwise cream has to be removed before consumption. 

Root vegetable like tapioca, yam, potato, colocasia etc are better avoided and if used, should be in moderation instead of cereals.

Include more vegetables (esp. Raw salads and green leafy vegetables) in your diet, as it is rich in fibre which in turn helps to reduce blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Raw salads with sprouted pulses enhances the nutrient composition. 

Fruits are restricted for diabetics and preferably should be consumed as such than having it in the form of juice. Select low calorie fruits from exchange list. 

Cardiac and hypertensive patients can take 3-4 servings of fruits. Whenever possible consume fruits with edible skins eg. Apple. Guava etc. 

Use of coconut and its products must be minimized. 

Cardiac patients need not restrict the intake of tender coconut water, whereas diabetes can only use it occasionally. 

It is better to avoid nuts like badam, peanuts, cashew nuts etc. But occasionally can be used in restricted amounts instead of some other food items so that the calories remain unchanged. 

Sugar and sweet should be avoided by diabetic patients. Low calorie sweeteners can be used in moderation as substitutes for sugar, honey, sweets etc. Cardiac and hypertensive patients should minimize their intake of sugar and sweets. 

Garlic, curry leaves, fenugreek seeds cluster beans, oatbran etc have blood sugar and cholesterol loosing efforts. Ginger, foods in rich with vit- e and b carotene reduces the risk of cardiac diseases. 

Alcohol intake injurious to health, 1 ml of alcohol contains 7 calories. Alcohol can cause hypoglyemia and can increase triglycerides which can be harmful for the heart. 

Cooking oil used should be minimized and may be restricted to 10-15 ml/day. (2-3 tsp). Use cooking methods that require little or no fat. Hidden fat in bakery products and snacks should also be taken into account. 

Preferably use a combination of cooking oils like sesame. Ground nut, sunflower, rice bran, corn oil etc. Use of coconut and palm oil should be maintained at minimum levels. 

Dinner should be enjoyed two hours before retiring. At bed time either diluted milk of fruit can be consumed. 

Include foods from all the different food groups and thus consume a balanced diet. 

Regular exercise is most useful but physical strain after a meal should be avoided. 

Free foods (can be included liberally)


 Thin buttermilk, unsweetened lime juice, jeera water, fenugreek water, raw vegetable salads made of low calorie vegetables, plain clear soups etc. 

Foods to be used in moderation.

Hemoglobin is an iron-rich protein responsible for transporting oxygen from your lungs to other areas of your body. Low hemoglobin levels are often associated with low iron levels, and adding iron to your diet is a simple way to promote the normal production of hemoglobin. Other nutrients aid in this process, too, so talk to your doctor about the dietary changes you can make to raise your levels. Boost your iron intake iron is a mineral that's essential for making healthy red blood cells and hemoglobin. If your red blood cells don't contain enough hemoglobin, you'll develop anemia, a condition that causes fatigue, shortness of breath and chest pain, according to the national heart, lung and blood institute. Increasing your intake of iron will help your body make more hemoglobin. Lean meats, seafood, beans, peas, dried fruits, leafy greens, prune juice and iron-fortified grains are all nutritious ways to boost your iron intake. Get more vitamin c increase your intake of vitamin c because it helps your body absorb iron, which can promote hemoglobin production. Adding fruit to your daily diet is a simple way to get more of this key vitamin. Citrus fruits, berries, kiwis and can notaloupe are all good sources. Nutritious vegetable sources of vitamin c include bell peppers, tomatoes, broccoli, potatoes and leafy greens, and adding these to your diet can be an effective way to help your body absorb more iron. Increase intake of vitamin b-12 and folate one type of anemia is called vitamin-deficient anemia, and it occurs when you have low levels of vitamin b-12 and folate, according to the american society of hematology. If low levels of either nutrient are because of poor diet, your doctor will likely recommend that you add certain foods to your menu to boost your intakes. Lean meat and seafood are healthy sources of vitamin b-12, and leafy greens and citrus fruits are nutritious foods that supply folate. There are great homoepathic remedies which increses platelet count, raises hemoglobin and treats thyroid. I have dealing with such cases every day and believe me madam homoeopathy works for thyroid and blood disorders affectively.
