Hi, Thank you for your query. We will be happy to help you. For effective weight loss, make sure that you do not eat outside food. This includes junk as well as processed foods. Also limit the intake of food items that are very sugary, salty or oily. Eating sweets is fine but only once in a while. Only you can control how much sweets you consume. So make sure that you control your cravings for sweets. Eat healthy home cooked meals with 4 to 5 servings of fruits and vegetables daily. Drink plenty of water. Eat calorie controlled meals and decrease your meal portions by a little amount. Exercise regularly, 5 times a week at least and 30 to 40 minutes each time. We are here to guide you. For a detailed and customized diet plan, feel free to leave a message. Eat healthy, stay healthy. Regards.

Hi doctors, my HbA1c test result done in November was 10 which was when I was diagnosed with diabetes. Now after changing my lifestyle with daily exercise and gym I retook the test yesterday n it has come down to 8.3. Even though it is still high, I am hoping to get it the normal range without any meds. What I want to know is, what all diet should I follow to make sure my sugar level comes down to normal range without any meds. Thank you.

Ypu should avoid sugar, sweets,jaggery, honey,sweet fruits like grapse, mangoes,cheekoo, banana etc. Take small frequent meals instead of large ones. Exercise regularly. Monitor blood sugar regularly If still not controlled then add medicines under supervision of a Physician.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. There is no way to tell how many calories one needs to burn if blood glucose is 200 mg/ 100 ml. Caloric requirement is based on actual body weight, extent of daily exercise and may be blood glucose levels. Blood glucose level can be brought down by proper drug treatment, diet and exercise. Thanks.

Thanks for the query. You have given some values but there is no clear mention whether you have diabetes or not. Please understand conditions like Hypothyroidism, PCOD and diabetes (if present), can not be cured completely. Therefore, treatment has to go on for each of those conditions. Your blood glucose levels are fairly well controlled. There is no mention of HbA1c%, to know how well the control has been there. Dietary changes and exercise are a major part of the treatment for diabetes. There is no special diet for hypothyroidism except avoiding soy beans and soy containing products. PCOD also a manageable condition. But if you do not want to take tablets then there is no way to control these diseases. Thanks.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I have seen the details, following are my observations: 1)With a BMI of 39.6 kgs/M2 (normal <23 kgs/ M2), you are morbidly obese. This is the main reason for getting diabetes and not being able to control effectively. 2) There is no mention of actual fasting, PP glucose levels and HbA1c% it is not possible to talk about proper control of the condition. 3) There is no mention of dosage of drugs being taken, further no mention of extent of daily exercise, dietary pattern 4) No mention of lipid profile too. My suggestion is please come back with all the necessary details mentioned above, preferably in a private (paid consultation) conversation then I will be able to guide and prescibe if there is a need Please understand almost all the medicines have excellent action, however, there may be a proper drug selection required some times. Hence if interested do come back as mentioned earlier. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The blood glucose level (170 mg) mentioned is it fasting, after food or random. Please clarify that. If it is fasting glucose then it is too high. If a person gets diabetes then mostly the treatment has to be for lifetime. Thanks.
