What are all the reasons for diabetes and how to maintain the sugar level in our body.

What are all the reasons for diabetes and how to maintain the sugar level in our body.
Hye, thanks for the query. For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - the sugar levels will fluctuate depending on what you ate or did not eat, stress levels and activity levels. You have to try and manage a balanced carb intake. Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. You have to eat 3 main and 3 mid meals. Your diet must include whole grains, seasonal fruits, vegetables, small amounts of nuts and dairy and pulses or dals or lean meats like chicken or fish and egg. Starchy vegetables need to be planned into the diet. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Avoid exercise if sugar levels are above 250mg/dl. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Mr. Lybrate-user, there is no special method or treatment to come out of that addiction. You have to just stop using it. It will be tough for some nights to get sleep. Looking at your height and weight it is clear that you have grade 3 obesity. It is better if you exercise regularly over 1 hour a day, that physical strain will make you tired and possibly quality of sleep will improve even without any drug. Thanks.

Hello doctor my father was suffering sugar problem last two years what should I do his age 53.

Hello doctor my father was suffering sugar problem last two years what should I do his age 53.
Mr. Lybrate-user, I am sure he is already on appropriate treatment, that should be continued. Strive to maintain fasting sugar closer to 100 mg and pp between 150 to 160 mg/100ml.& hba1c%<7. These levels will help in preventing or delaying long term complications of diabetes mellitus. Otherwise, consequences can be fairly bad. Apart from regular medication he should also take a restricted but balanced diet, that gives exact calories matching needs based on ideal body weight, sugar levels and extent of daily physical activity. Daily exercise of 1 hour plus is a must. He should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Should also refrain from alcohol, sweetened aerated drinks and smoking. Also avoid ghee, butter and high fat milk products like cheese.

Mr. Lybrate-user, what is your recent or present tsh level? if hypothyroidism is not in control (tsh levels should be between 3 milli units to 4 milli units/ml), the symptoms of hypothyroidism will not go away. So get the test done and report the levels. Iam sure you are following the dosing instructions properly - to be taken on empty stomach, early morning and nothing to be eaten for next 2 hours. Plus you have to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts and coffee. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, fruits. Use whole grain flour for making chapati and roti. Plus exercise for 1 hour a day in order to avoid weight gain. Regurgitation can be helped by regular exercise, further after food stay upright for about 3 hours. Take more frequent but smaller meals in a day. Also avoid spicy and high fat foods that will help reduce regurgitation. Occasionally can take antacids.

Thyroid gland affects nearly every organ in the body. Many nutritional factors play a role in optimizing thyroid function. However, both nutrient deficiencies and excesses can trigger or exacerbate symptoms. Working in collaboration with a both a physician and a registered dietitian is essential to determine nutritional status for optimal thyroid health. Improper thyroid function causes undesired weight changes, significant cardiovascular risks, and symptoms such as fatigue, mood changes, and gastrointestinal upset, which can hinder the development of healthful behaviors. I focus on setting realistic goals for healthy changes and regular exercise when counseling clients. There many potential nutrient deficiencies and interactions with medications and supplements. Hence diligent care is to be taken while designing a holistic treatment plan. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

Diabetic control is very difficult and you need to take strict measures and add or change the drugs. Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch personally.

Dear lybrate-user, there are medicine to control diabetes which causes increase in belly. Which medicines are you taking? second thing is you can not eat honey when you have diabetes. The belly will not be reduced but the blood sugar will increase. In diabetes you should do exercise to reduce the weight or belly or even blood sugar level. Dear, don't do such harmful experiments with such a beautiful creation of god. You can decrease belly with some homeopthic medicines.

Slow recovery of wounds may occur in many people. It need not be a sign of diabetes. Most importantly get your blood sugar checked. Fasting below 126 mg and after food below 140 mg per 100 ml means no sugar (no diabetes).

Drink mint tea or make a paste of green mint with some simple spices and eat during meals. Eat vegetables such as bitter gourd and drumsticks to control obesity. Take a tablespoon of honey daily with warm water. It is an excellent home remedy for obesity Take one teaspoonful of fresh honey and mix with a half of lime juice in a glass of lukewarm water. Take several times a day at regular intervals. You can fast on this drink during the day without the loss of energy. Highly effective in obesity. Join aerobics..walk daily.

I am sure you are thyroxine tablets for hypothyroidism, once that is controlled it is possible for you to do regular workouts and reduce weight. Firs target on loosing 2 kgs per month, which is possible by reducing the food intake by about 20% and continuing your gym workout. If you feel hungry, take calorie free foods like tomato, dilute butter milk, clear soups etc. Check tsh levels every 6 - 8 weeks to stabilse the dose of thyroxine.

Hypothyroidism is the main reason why the weight is increasing. If tsh levels are brought to normal, preferably between 3 to 4 milli units/ ml, then efforts to reduce weight will be fruitful. So firdt thing is to control hypothyroidism, bring tsh levels down to 3 to 4 milli units/ml, take a restricted diet, that gives exact calories based on ideal body weight, (47 kgs), daily exercise of at least 1 hour is needed.
