You need to take medicines. If your already taking then consult your doctor, he will increase dose or change medicine. In addition do this a diabetes diet simply means eating the healthiest foods in moderate amounts and sticking to regular mealtimes. A diabetes diet is a healthy-eating plan that's naturally rich in nutrients and low in fat and calories. Key elements are fruits, vegetables and whole grains. you can take (moderate amount) grapes. Apples. Berries. Citrus fruits. Pineapple. Papaya. U should avoid sugar-sweetened beverages. Sugary beverages are the worst drink choice for someone with diabetes. Trans fats sugar, cake, pastries mithai/sweets chocolate fruits like mango, litchi etc. White bread, pasta fruit-flavored yogurt. Sweetened breakfast cereals. Flavored coffee drinks. Honey 1. Don't take tea empty stomach. Eat something like a banana (if you are not diabetic). No only biscuits or rusk will not do. 2. Take your breakfast every day. Don't skip it. 3. Have light meals every 2 hours (in addition to your breakfast, lunch n dinner) e.g. Nariyal paani, chaach, a handful of dry fruits, a handful of peanuts, seasonal fruit, a cup of curd/milk etc 4.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Madam looking at your height and weight, with a BMI of 33.2 kgs/Sq meter, you are having an excess of over 25 kgs. This can be the culprit for not being able to control the blood glucose. Therefore, there is a need to give a closer look at your current dietary pattern, extent of daily exercise and even the drugs being taken. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines about treatment and lifestyle management. No prescription can be given. So please give a closer look at your diet and exercise. Drug Pioglitazone can increase the weight, it may have to be replaced. If you want online help, please come in a private conversation (paid consultation) with currrent fasting, PP glucose levels, HbA1c%, present dietary details, extent of daily exercise, BP readings,lipid profile then I will be able to help. Thanks

I woke up at around 6-7 pm today and I looked at my feet's veins they were so visible and blue in colour, my sugar level was also low that time then I took my insulins after that the veins got normal. So, is it any kind of disease or it's normal for diabetic type-1?

You did the absolutely wrong thing to say you took insulin when the sugar level is low. And insulin is taken when sugar levels are higher than normal. Your veins might have become engorged due to pressing in sleep or varicosities and need check up. Do not do dangerous medications like taking insulin when the sugar level is low.

There is no evidence that having many sweets will lead to diabetes whereas taking sweets will worsen diabetes if it has already set in. Surgeries do not lead to diabetes.

It is not known if ginger really helps to control blood sugar levels since there are no studies done to substantiate that theory. Even then, it is good for digestion and so can be taken occasionally. Ginger can be used while cooking food.

I want to know about canagliflozin. My mom is diabetic since 18 years. Taking insulin. Having bp. 100 mg or 300 mg of canagliflozin would be better?

No it should be not taken that way. Don't ask questions for dosage of medicine so randomly. These medicines should not be taken casually. Better consult and take proper suggestion if you want your mother to be healthy.

You are normal and so do not worry or anticipate any troubles. Learn more about healthy lifestyle changes from the internet and follow the healthy habits as a routine. Diet and exercise are very important to maintain good health. Balanced diet - which is nutritious and healthy (and with appropriate calories) can help you maintain an ideal weight. Become health conscious and be consistent with healthy habits. Keep going back for regular health check up and do the tests (as advised by your doctor) to monitor your overall health and fitness.
