So you have diabetes, so what's next? 1. You should definitely get good. First of all, you should start liking your eating plans and physical exercise schedules needs to be reframed. 2. Eating with diabetes doesn't mean starvation, you can eat but you should eat right and avoid certain foods. In fact, if you are a foodie then you should choose healthier options or the one which don't harm you. 3. Nachos can be great option if you are starving and walk in the restaurant. It has lesser calories and carbs as compared to other fattening foods. Battered fish dinners can be a great option when managing with your weight and diabetes. 4. Avoid fried foods if you are having diabetes. Indian traditional snack of roasted black gram seeds is great on providing energy and nutrition but resist the carbs intake. It's helpful as diabetic food. List is endless. 5. Ayurveda medicines, herbals, naturals can be of great help. You have high chances of depending solely on these if you are not insulin dependent yet. These may have (or my not) to be life long but then what's the difference between taking ayurveda if to be taken for life? there's benefit. There will be no side effect (if taken as per ayurveda doctor's/ vaidya's directions), which is not possible in modern, rapid, toxic medicines. Some remedies such as cinnamon decoction/ strain are excellent weight reducers as well as blood glucose regulators similar to'periploca of the woods' or'ram's horn (meshashringi)' but latter is not known as weight reducer'paneer ka phool' - withania coagulans reduces blood sugar as well as cholesterol. So selection of medicines has to be as per set of symptoms a patient presents. Quality selection of herbs is also important e. G. Cinnamon of dark color is not much beneficial and regular and more concentrated decoction may harm too while ceylon cinnamon is more results oriented.
Mr. Lybrate-user, to control sugar level one has to take prescribed drugs regularly without fail. 1. Take a restricted diet that meets exact caloric requirement based on ideal body weight, sugar levels and extent of daily exercises. One has to avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. 2. Also avoid sweetened aerated drinks, products containing fructose corn syrup, high fat cheese. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits. 3. Daily exercise of 1 hour plus is necessary to maintain normal weight and burn extra calories. Should maintain fasting around 100 mg and pp between 150 to 160 mg/100ml and hba1c%< 7.
