I am a male, 32, 5 feet, blood group B+ve, no medication, high uric acid in blood, working in BPO night shifts. Please suggest if I can take wheat made chapatis or not as any have told me not to eat chapatis. Also suggest how much water should I drink according to my blood group. I take at least 4 litres of water a day.

Hye. Thankyou for the query. Unless you have a medical condition that calls for a restriction, there is no reason why you should stop eating chapati. Water intake does not depend on your blood group. Water intake depends on many factors like activity level, season, food intake, disease condition if any etc. Best way to ensure good intake of water is to sip on water through the day. You can be assured that you are taking enough water when the urine you pass is colourless (unless you are taking any medication or had fruits like beetroot). Also do not wait to be dehydrated and severely thirsty to have water. Ideally at least try to have at 2-3 liters of water per day (as long as you don't have any medical condition that needs restriction). Stop alcohol and smoking. Avoid skipping meals. Do not eat excessive amounts of non vegetarian foods. Since you work night shifts and have high uric acid levels, it will help to go for a personalised diet consultation.

The reason is your tablet. Glyson mf. Another reason may be your irregular meal timings. You can be started with metformin 500 twice daily. Please consult your nearby diabetologist doctor as early as possible and do not indulge in self medication.

Anilji , Looking at your sugar levels there is no proper control at all. This is not good, can cause serious complication with eyes, blood vessels, kidneys, nerves and heart and feet. So plase try and control the sugar levels better. If you want me to help please come in a private conversation where I can give specific suggestions.

Hi, Type-2 Diabetes is a lifestyle related problem, so making a few lifestyle changes can lower the chances of developing type 2 diabetes. -Excess weight is the single most important cause of type 2 diabetes, so control or reduce your weight if you are overweight! -Avoid sedentary lifestyle and start get moving. Brisk walking for a half hour every day reduces the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. -Modify your diet: *Choose whole grains and whole grain products over highly processed carbohydrates. The bran and fiber in whole grains make it more difficult for digestive enzymes to break down the starches into glucose. *Avoid sugary beverages which have a high glycemic load, and drinking more of this sugary stuff is associated with increased risk of diabetes. *Choose good fats instead of bad fats. Good fats found in liquid vegetable oils, nuts, and seeds. Trans fats or bad fats are found in many margarines, packaged baked goods, fried foods, fast or junk foods. *Limit intake of red meat and processed meats. Nuts, seeds, beans, tofu, or poultry are much more healthful protein choices. -Quit smoking. -Moderate alcohol consumption decreases the risk of type 2 diabetes. -Avoid taking unnecessary stress or tension! And keep an optimistic attitude in life! Medication: Take homoeopathic SBL’s Diaboherb medicine/ 3 times a day daily. Home Remedies: Dry the leaves of mango tree and grind to a powder. Mix 1 teaspoon dry powder in a glass of water and drink it daily to reduce high blood sugar levels. Take 2 teaspoons of bitter gourd (karela) juice once a day. One can also increase its use as a cooked vegetable. Take 1 teaspoon of Indian gooseberry (amla) juice mixed with 1 teaspoon of bitter gourd juice twice a day.

Dear Jegan, Yes.. you can.. you need to understand that you need to keep your sugars under control while trying for a baby. This will protect your baby. Also try to avoid physical relationship with your wife if you are having any fungal infection on your genitals as you may transmit it to your wife.

please tell me if your blood sugars are well controlled both fasting and pp? what is hba1c% and current treatment for diabetes and for neuropathy? usually neuropathic pain is not so easily controlled. There are certain drugs found to be beneficial, I am sure by now you might have already been using those. Drugs like gabapentine and pragabalin are used.

My self rajesh how I can control my sugar level currently my sugar is around 160.
For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise. Check your blood sugar both in fasting and 2 hours after meal.

I am 49 years old male having diabetes and high bp for the last 12 years. For the last 4 years my diabetes and bp have been more or less under control. I have been taking the following drugs for the last 4 years without any change: for diabetes: galvusmet 50/500 twice daily. Glimepride 2 mg twice daily. For high bp: olmat am 20 once a day. I regularly check my blood sugar and bp at home. My total cholesterol is under control. Mt hba1c reading last checked in nov 2014 was 7 (good control). I go for regular walking and jogging for at least 45 minutes 5 days a week. I am slightly overweight 83 kgs. I wish to know should I continue with the above medicines further or I need to change them, and if yes, what medicines should I take ?

It seems u r quite conscious for your health and taking medicines regularly and everything pretty under control. Still send me your last hba1c report, last 2 fbs pp2bs report, lipid profile report. As u r having diabetes and hypertension for 12 yrs, check your serum creatinine level and urine albumin level also, get an ecg and get fundus examination by ophthalmologist. Your wright is static or increased recently? any symptoms like east fatiguability, cold intolerance etc? and continue diet and exercise.
