Diet Chart For Diabetes Patient

MBBS, D.P.H
General Physician, Gurgaon
Diet Chart For Diabetes Patient

In India 61 million people are victims of diabetes. Diabetes disease is related to metabolic, in which oxidation of carbohydrates and glucose is not fully detected. Diabetes mellitus is a chronic metabolic disorder in which the body fails to convert sugars, starches and other foods into energy. Many of the foods you eat are normally converted into a type of sugar called glucose during digestion. The bloodstream then carries glucose through the body. The hormone, insulin, then turns glucose into quick energy or is stored for futher use. In diabetic people, the body either does not make enough insulin or it cannot use the insulin correctly. This is why too much glucose builds up in the bloodstream.

The main reason is irregular meal, mental stress, lack of exercise. There are two major types of diabetes:

Type 1

  • This is popularly known as juvenile onset diabetes. 
  • Here, the body produces little or no insulin. It occurs most often in childhood or in the teens and could be inherited.
  • People with this type of diabetes need daily injections of insulin. They must balance their daily intake of food and activities carefully with their insulin shots to stay alive.

Type 2

  • Also known as adult onset diabetes, this occurs around 35 to 40 years. The more common of the two types, it accounts for about 80 per cent of the diabetics.
  • Here, though the pancreas produce adequate insulin, body cells show reduced sensitivity towards it.
  • Type 2 diabetes is usually triggered by obesity. The best way to fight it is by weight loss, exercise and dietary control.
  • Sometimes, oral medication or insulin injections are also needed.

Symptoms of diabetes

  • Extreme thirst and hunger
  • Frequent urination
  • Sores or bruises that heal slowly
  • Dry, itchy skin
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Unusual tiredness or drowsiness
  • Tingling or numbness in the hands or feetsymptoms of diabetes

The role of diet in diabetes
Meal of diabetic patient is depending on calories. Which decides on it s age, weight, gender, height, working etc. Depending on each person s different   different dietary chart is created. We must take special care of time and amount of food in diabetes. Here we are giving diet chart for general diabetes patient.

Diabetes diet chart:

  • Morning at 6:   teaspoon fenugreek (methi) powder + water. 
  • Morning at 7: 1 cup sugar free tea + 1-2 mary biscuits.
  • Morning at 8.30: 1 plate upma or oatmeal + half bowl sprouted grains + 100ml cream-free milk without sugar
  • Morning at 10.30: 1 small fruit or 1 cup thin and sugar free buttermilk or lemon water
  • Lunch at 1: 2 roti of mixed flour, 1 bowl rice, 1 bowl pulse, 1 bowl yogurt, half cup soybean or cheese vegetable, half bowl green vegetable, one plate salad
  • 4 pm: 1 cup tea without sugar + 1-2 less sugar biscuits or toast
  • 6 pm: 1 cup soup
  • 8.30 pm: 2 roti of mixed flour, 1 bowl rice, 1 bowl pulse, half bowl green vegetable, one plate salad
  • 10.30 pm: take 1 cup cream free milk without sugar.

When you feel hungry intake raw vegetables, salad, black tea, soups, thin buttermilk, lemon water. Avoid it: molasses, sugar, honey, sweets, dry fruits. Foods you must avoid!

  1. Salt: salt is the greatest culprit for diabetics. You get enough salt from vegetables in inorganic form, so reduce the intake of inorganic salt.
  2. Sugar: sucrose, a table sugar, provides nothing but calories and carbohydrates. Also, you need calcium to digest sucrose. Insufficient sucrose intake might lead to calcium being leached off the bones. Substitute sucrose with natural sugar, like honey, jaggery (gur), etc.
  3. Fat: excessive fat intake is definitely not a good habit. Try and exclude fried items from your diet totally. But, remember, you must have a small quantity of oil to absorb fat-soluble vitamins, especially vitamin E.
  4. For non-vegetarians: Try and stop the intake of red meat completely. Try to go in for a vegetarian diet. If you cannot, decrease the consumption of eggs and poultry. You can, however, eat lean fish two to three times a week.
  5. Whole milk and products: Try to switch to low fat milk and its products like yogurt (curd). Replace high fat cheese with low fat cottage cheese.
  6. Tea and coffee: Do not have than two cups of the conventional tea or decaffeinated coffee every day. Try to switch to herbal teas.
  7. White flour and its products: Replace these with whole grains, wholewheat or soya breads and unpolished rice.
  8. Foods with a high glycemic index: Avoid white rice, potatoes, carrots, breads and banana -- they increase the blood-sugar levels. 

Advice for diabetes patient:

  1. 35-40 minute faster walk every day.
  2. Diabetic person should eat food between times intervals like take breakfast in morning, lunch, some snakes and dinner.
  3. Avoid oily food.
  4. Intake more fiber foods in meals. It increases glucose level gradually in blood and keeps control.
  5. Do not take fast and also don t go much party.
  6. Diabetic person should eat food slowly.

Calorific requirement:

  1.  An obese middle aged or elderly patient with mild diabetes 1000 -1600 kcal.
  2.  An elderly diabetic but not over weight  1400 -1800 kcal.
  3.  A young active diabetic  1800 -3000 kcal.
  4.  Daily intake of carbohydrate: 1/10th of total calories approximately  180gm.
  5.  Daily intake of protein: 60gm to 110gm.
  6.  Daily intake of fat: 50gm to 150gm.

My son is handicapped and mentally underdeveloped and on wheel chair. He is now 18+. At the age of six months he has uncontrolled seizures and still on anti convultions. He has chest congestions repeatedly. Also his capacity to control urine is decreasing. He has repeated UTI and URI also. How we can permanentally control this. We nebulize him occasionally with duolin and budecort 1 mg. Thanks.

It very tough. Get him vaccinated. Try to boost his immunity by nutritious food. As he is getting repeated infection ,get his IGA,IGG.IGM assessed. Nebulize with duolin only if not asthmatic as budecort will increase chances of pneumonia.

My brother is 10 year and his height is 4'6 feet and his weight is 50 and stomach is round in shape he play cricket daily. please suggest.?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Bangalore
Overweight and obesity is becoming more common because of having sweet drinks, sweets, bakery products and other junk food. Even the amount of food is not controlled as parents want the child to grow strong and force children to eat more than they need. Additionally children play games like cricket in which there is very little exercise or exertion. He should do running and jogging as a warm up, and be more active overall if he wants to lose weight.

If baby is having lots of diper rashes, and using rashes cream also but its not decresing and crying a lot for that while passing stool and urine Please suggest immediate relief for that ?

DMB
Pediatrician, Chennai
You have not mentioned how long your baby is having diaper rash. Diaper rash is fungal if there are lots of spots near the border of the rash called satellite lesions. This may need antifungal creams. Passing urine and stools on a rash is very painful for the baby and so you have to use a lot of barrier creams like ezinapi or rashfree cream in spoonfuls, and not just a little bit. This has to be done every time you change the diaper. If the child is in lot of pain, you can give paracetamol. Please also give zinc preparation like sy zinconia or mintonia 2.5 ml twice a day for 2 weeks. I assume you are breast feeding.

Our baby is 3 months 15 days baby. Doctor say that Pneumococcal Vaccine is necessary for a baby. We are confused whether to take that vaccination. Please suggest whether this vaccine is necessary or not.

Well its not mandatory to take a pneumococcal vaccine. Generally pneumococcal vaccine is given to prevent any infection caused by pneumococcus, there are 100+ strains of pneumococcus but this vaccine only provides resistance to infection cause by 13 strains. So the baby has still chance of getting infection from rest of the strains. Generally we recommend this vaccine to babies who are born premature and are at high risk of getting infection, like babies who often get ill having cough and cold or pneumonia. It is mandatory for persons travelling to usa, so if you plan to visit usa in future, get your baby vaccinated. If money is not an issue you can get baby vaccinated. If money is an issue you can skip doses for 1st year and get a single dose at 15 months, that would be enough for life long immunity. So its your decision depending on child health and history as well as your financial status. Hope I have solved your query.

Fever can be because of viral illness also, which does not require antibiotics, you should wait for atleast 3 days, because a viral illness will subside on its own, however if the child looks really sick, azithromycin is the antibiotic which will help.

Hi lybrate-user, There is developmental delay in all spheres (motor, adaptive and social) in children with Down’s syndrome and most common genetic cause of learning disability & mental retardation. As there is no curative therapy, counseling has a central role to play in the management. Having Down's syndrome child can be challenging at times. But with help professional support, most people are able to have healthy, active and more independent lives. There are many children who have done wonders and hence take it as chanllenge and support your kid to develop and learn.

After evry feed you must clean her teeth. You can encourage her to imitate you while brushing yourself and she will try to follow you. Unless cleaning is done there is no way or medicines to clean teeth. You give logical syrup 5 ml once daily as calcium supplement, keep in touch personally for regular guidance on any health issue.

3 Undisclosed Facts About Breastfeeding, This World Breastfeeding Week

3 Undisclosed Facts About Breastfeeding, This World Breastfeeding Week
3 lesser known facts about breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is advocated to be the only best thing for a newborn. But while it is the most natural thing to do, it isn't an easy process. It is challenging and full of surprises. Researches throw up facts that surprise all. For example: breastfeeding is like a shield against breast cancer.
Here are 3 such lesser known facts:

1. The milk contents - ever wondered what your baby thinks of the taste of your breast milk. Well, the fact is that your breast milk is tailor-made for your baby. From the taste to its benefits, it is a full course meal. When the feeding begins, the milk is watery. This is to quench the baby's thirst. Then the consistency thickens and the milk becomes higher in fat content. This meets your baby's electrolyte needs as well as energy requirement. Want to know something more amazing? through the day, your breasts milk's properties keep changing. By evening, it has higher sedating properties and helps the baby's body meet nutritional demands. This should explain that satisfied smile babies have when they sleep right after their feeds.
2. Variation in milk production - it is okay and natural if you feel you are lopsided. Many breastfeeding mothers feel that one breast is heavier than the other since it produces more milk. This is possible and happens a lot. Our body is not perfectly symmetrical between left and right. This applies to breasts as well and shouldn't be worried about. Because of this, milk production can also vary between both the breasts.
3. It causes weightloss - some women are known to lose their pregnancy weight by breastfeeding. Yes, this is also a lesser known fact. Breast milk happens to be a high calorie food which the baby literally sucks off the mother's body. This leads to shrinking of the mother's body.

You need not to worry. This is regurgitation occurs after feed usually due to swallowing of air too during feed. If feeding with bottle, switch to spoon feeding which shall reduce episodes of regurgitation. Give more time to burping. At this age if her wt is about 6 kg, it indicates she is taking required feed.
