Ayurveda and Blood Sugar Imbalance

Ayurveda and Blood Sugar Imbalance

Ayurveda, the traditional way of healing is known to be a crucial and effectual therapy for a lot of ailments. Since the primitive ages, mankind has been approaching Ayurveda for remedial purposes and in most instances have reaped fruitful results. Ayurveda seeks to heal diseases using natural herbs that are said to resonate well with the four elemental constituents of beings, i.e air, water, earth and fire. Ayurveda uses myriad herbs and natural ingredients in a unique proportion to impart physical as well as spiritual wellness. One of the most common and yet fairly formidable disease plaguing modern lives is diabetes, induced by imbalance in the blood sugar levels in the human body. 

Ayurveda recommends the use of a few select herbs to control and alleviate the blood sugar imbalance.

  1. Gymnema Leaf: Indigenously called gurmar, Gymnema leaves regulate the insulin level in our body. It not only prevents absorption of sugar in the intestine, but also stimulates cell growth in the pancreas. As a consequence, the insulin levels in the body is maintained and the blood sugar problems get neutralized.
  2. Cinnamon: Cinnamon is replete with polyphenols that trigger off a healthy count of insulin secretion. Cinnamon has other beneficial properties as well. Whether consumed as tea or sprinkled on food as a flavor, Cinnamon can be instrumental in combatting blood sugar imbalance.
  3. Fenugreek seeds: A common find in most Indian kitchens, Fenugreek seeds are well known for their health advantages.  Its pungent sweet flavor adds to the taste of many dishes. But most importantly, fenugreek seeds extensively keep the blood sugar level in control. 
  4. Basil Leaf: Basil leaves are one of the most commonly used natural remedies for a wide range of diseases. The basil extracts are used in various food items and are extremely effective in curbing the excessive presence of blood sugar in the body. In general as well, basil leaves regulate the metabolism to a large extent.
  5. Coccinia Indica: This herb protects the vital organs from any damage caused due to diabetes. It stabilizes the breakdown of starch in the body.
  6. Azadirachta Indica: Common known as Neem, this herb is perhaps an indomitable medicine for increasing glucose tolerance. Neem is also used in allopathic medication on account of its various healing qualities.

How to control a sugar at first stage? Please advise.

Endocrinologist,
How to control a sugar at first stage? Please advise.
Chandraji, please clarify what do you mean" first stage, because there is nothing like first or second stage in diabetes. It is either there or not there. But there is a situation when blood sugar is higher than normal but has not crossed limits to call it as diabetes. Then it is referred as" pre diabetes. In this situation one has to adapt a changed life style like regular exercise, avoid sweets, sugar, junk foods, deep fried ffods and pastries and alcohol and smoking. Plus maintain near normal weight. Then it is possible to prevent diabetes or postpone it.

I am a 42 year male suffering from hypothyroidism since 2 years. Now I am taking 150 microgram thyroxin. At times I feel joint pain, speech trouble and back pain. Is there a cure for it or not. What would be the diet, precaution and measures to be taken.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Hypothyroidism can lead to a wide spectrum of issues like myalgia, fatigue, weight gain etc. For your joint pain, initially you can start with anti inflammatory medications, start with intensive physical therapy, take adequate calcium and vitamin d supplementation and let me know in 2-3 weeks time how you are feeling. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Dietary and other lifestyle changes can help you control and prevent high blood pressure. Eating a diet that is rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy products and skimps on saturated fat and cholesterol can lower your blood pressure by up to 14 mm hg. This eating plan is known as the dietary approaches to stop hypertension (dash) diet. Get plenty of potassium, which can help prevent and control high blood pressure. Eat less saturated fat and total fat. If you're overweight, losing even 3 kgs can lower your blood pressure. Strive for at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day. Plenty of fluids orally. I suggest brisk walking for 40 mins, 5 days a week. Remain stress free as much as possible. Take your medicines regularly

My mother is suffering from hypothyroidism. What we should take care to get rid of it?
hypothyroidism is a thyroxine deficiency disorder, so it needs regular (daily) supplement of thyroxine hormone. There is no cure for this, she has to be treated for her life time. Otherwise there can be serious complications.

Dear lybrate user we can very well address your concern regarding your wife's hypothyroidism. It could had been better had you provided us with her latest tsh reports for better understanding of the situation. Try to understand that this is due to deficiency of thyroid hormone because of underfunctioning gland. The treatment of which is hormone replacement which you are doing in the form of tab thyroxine. Will suggest to keep monitoring her tsh levels on a regular basis and not to go for any other alternative therapy. Hope this helps and solves your query. Anything more then please feel free to revert.

Which is safest and minimum drug for diabetic 100/140?

M. D (Internal Medicine) , M B B S
General Physician,
You do not need medicines currently. Follow diabetic diet and regular exercise. Do a hba1c now. Repeat all these tests after 3 months of regular diet and exercise. If it is controlled, continue the same and keep checking every 3 months. Medications can be started if it goes out of control despite diet and exercise.

Mr. First and foremost is to take appropriate drugs for controlling blood sugar levels. Ideally fasting should be nearer 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg, hba1c%<7. In addition diet control and exercise are also equally important to help better control of blood sugar. The diet has to be individualised, looking at a number of aspects like sugar levels, drugs, daily extent of exercise present dietary pattern. Soto suggest a diet I need to know above details. In the mean time remember to avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks, high fat milk products and alcohol. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits about 100 g a day.

SAY 'NO' TO DIABETES

SAY 'NO' TO DIABETES

Tip 1: Get more physical activity
There are many benefits to regular physical activity. Exercise can help you:
• Lose weight
• Lower your blood sugar
• Boost your sensitivity to insulin — which helps keep your blood sugar within a normal range
Research shows that both aerobic exercise and resistance training can help control diabetes, but the greater benefit comes from a fitness program that includes both.
Tip 2: Get plenty of fiber
It's rough, it's tough — and it may help you:
• Reduce your risk of diabetes by improving your blood sugar control
• Lower your risk of heart disease
• Promote weight loss by helping you feel full
Foods high in fiber include fruits, vegetables, beans, whole grains, nuts and seeds.
Tip 3: Go for whole grains
Although it's not clear why, whole grains may reduce your risk of diabetes and help maintain blood sugar levels. Try to make at least half your grains whole grains. Many foods made from whole grains come ready to eat, including various breads, pasta products and many cereals. Look for the word "whole" on the package and among the first few items in the ingredient list.
Tip 4: Lose extra weight
If you're overweight, diabetes prevention may hinge on weight loss. Every pound you lose can improve your health, and you may be surprised by how much. Participants in one large study who lost a modest amount of weight — around 7 percent of initial body weight — and exercised regularly reduced the risk of developing diabetes by almost 60 percent.
Tip 5: Skip fad diets and just make healthier choices
Low-carb diets, the glycemic index diet or other fad diets may help you lose weight at first, but their effectiveness at preventing diabetes isn't known nor are their long-term effects. And by excluding or strictly limiting a particular food group, you may be giving up essential nutrients. Instead, think variety and portion control as part of an overall healthy-eating plan.

Hello, to become healthier one needs to take a balanced diet, that provides all three major energy giving nutrients in proper proportion like carbohydrates 55 to 60 %, protein 15%, fats 25 to 30 %. To control diabetes, it is essential to take appropriate treatment with anti diabetes drugs, diet control and regular exercise foe at least 1 hour. Cold drinks or colas contain a lot of sugar they provide high amount of calories and no nutrition. Excess intake can lead to over weight. Similarly junk foods and pastries and other bakery items also are not to be taken by a patient of diabetes. Thanks.

I am diabetic. Even though I am taking tablets & controlling food, if I am not doing exercises or daily walking, my blood sugar level is going up. What can be the reason?

Exercise improves insulin sensitivity and also increases glucose use by muscles. So if you skip exercise your sugar level increases.
