Diabetes is a disease where your body cannot control its blood sugar levels properly – either because your body doesn’t make enough (or any) insulin, or because your cells have become resistant to insulin. Insulin is produced in the pancreas, it is important because it helps your body process sugars. Diabetes can affect the body in many other ways, including eye disease, foot ulceration, kidney failure, amputation and a higher risk of heart disease.
Keeping your blood sugar at a safe level means you’re less likely to experience other health problems.
If diabetes is diagnosed and managed effectively, you can still live a long and happy life as long as you stay in control. There are also many people in Fiji living with diabetes who may not even know it because they don’t have the symptoms, it is important to get your blood sugar tested regularly to avoid Diabetes related complications further down the track. The 2002 STEPS survey identified that out of the 16% diabetics, 50% of them were previously unrecognised which is an alarmingly high number.
Given the fact that 30% of Fijians have Diabetes, you have a 1 in 3 chance of having or developing diabetes. Early detection and treatment of diabetes can decrease the risk of developing the complications of diabetes.
The best way to check if you have diabetes or are at risk is to visit your local health centre. This chart shows the different levels of blood glucose, what are safe levels and what are dangerous levels depending on when you last ate. Even if you have no symptoms at all, it is important to get tested as you may still have diabetes.
You can prevent or delay the onset of Type 2 diabetes through adopting a healthy lifestyle.
By changing your diet, increasing your level of physical activity and maintaining a healthy weight, you can stay healthier, live longer and reduce your risk of Type 2 Diabetes. Type 2 diabetes occurs when your cells have become insulin resistant or your body doesn’t produce enough insulin to keep you healthy. Usually, doctors conduct two main tests that help in diagnosing whether someone has diabetes.
Though all possible measures have been taken to ensure accuracy, reliability, timeliness and authenticity of the information; Onlymyhealth assumes no liability for the same. Just wanted to know from you all if you know something what type of food can control diabetes, any particular food item which can control the sugar level in the blood etc. Well, recommended diet depends in part on what type of diet a given nationality is accustomed to having, traditionally, historically.
One of the main tricks I stumbled on was the fact that mega-doses of Vitamin C (plus lots of water) will bring your blood sugar down. Gentle exercise, such as walking and some simple exercises of your choice can also help you keep your blood sugar at a healthy level. I think my blood sugar level even if it is on higher side, still it is in normal range, so I think I have not got diabetes disease till now - or - have I already got diabetes disease? Does white flour of wheat is also likely to increase the blood sugar level as I eat daily chapattis made of white flour of wheat? I think I will have to wait for doing some type of exercise, because the wound in the thumb of my leg is at the bottom base side, and it has been operated 2 to 3 days ago, with some stiches done on it finally.


What you've described in diet changes (no sugar, less rice, bread, noodles and more vegetables and meat) will have your blood sugar regulated well. When it is first discovered, and you change your diet appropriately, it might never get worse than it is now. A number of clinical studies have been conducted to evaluate the efficacy of bitter melon in the treatment of diabetes. Other older studies have also suggested an association between bitter melon intake and improved glycemic control, while a report published in the March 2008 issue of Chemistry and Biology found that bitter melon increased cellular uptake of glucose and improved glucose tolerance.
However, research published in the Journal of Clinical Epidemiology in 2007 failed to show any benefits of bitter melon for poorly controlled type 2 diabetes, while another clinical review published two years later in the British Journal of Nutrition stated that more, better-designed and clinical trials are required to confirm the fruit’s role in diabetes treatment.
Also, I totally agree with the recommendation above to find an endocrinologist, a doctor that specializes in the treatment of diabetes (and other things affecting the same systems). Currently almost 1 in every 3 Fijians is being diagnosed with diabetes, that’s 30% of the population. You can always visit your nearest diabetes hub to get your sugar checked ad learn how to stay in control of your diabetes. They can check your blood glucose (sugar) levels there and assess any symptoms you may have.
It is usually done six to eight hours after the last meal taken, thus, normally it is tested before breakfast in the morning; and the normal range could fall between 70 to 100 milligrams per deciliter. If you have or suspect having any medical condition, kindly contact your professional health care provider.
Ayurvedic doctors in India recommend complex carbohydrates, like lentils and brown rice with vegetables. And if it is discovered that you have type 1 diabetes, feel free to pm me for support or info. We have much training at this point on proper diet for dealing with diabetes (though his is not reversible) and the one thing you will find is, as with everything, not everything that works for others will work for you. It is technically for people who are using insulin, but there is a boat load of information about diet and exercise and how all those thing impact your blood sugar. We have to deal with it differently than you will to start, because our son is insulin dependent. They will be leagues ahead of current research and information compared to most general or family doctors. Type 2 diabetes is more common than Type 1, it is also more easily avoided if the correct healthy lifestyle is adopted. However, some people with Type 2 diabetes have symptoms so mild that they go unnoticed so it is always best to get your blood sugar levels tested by a medical professional.
In case, you are using test strips to check blood glucose level, then it's important to know what the blood glucose level means. Tibetan Ayurvedic doctors recommend a low-carbohydrate diet with higher protein, as Tibetans have been herders for thousands of years, and do best on a meat diet. But the basics will apply to anyone: avoid processed flour (white flour), potatoes (they're like eating sugar!), and white rice. Regardless of whether or not you are T1 or T2, you need to speak with medical professionals face to face as you cannot get what you need from any internet forum, Buddhist or otherwise! I am a type of skinny person, means even though i eat properly, but still i do not put much fat on my body, but in last few months i started to develop a small tummy, which has eventually reduced due to change in my work location and now i need to walk some distance to get a local train or keep standing in the local train, when all the seats are full etc.


They can be made from whole wheat flour, though, if you can find a grocery that sells that. Your body can respond the same way to them because as soon as your mouth detects sweetness, your body starts to respond. But we've learned a lot about diet, exercise, and how the body processes things and responds to environment, and how it affects the blood sugar.
They will be able to give you very specific diet information, tips for when and how to check your blood sugar, and how to notice and track patterns in yourself. The 'normal' blood sugar ranges for adults and children with type 1 diabetes may differ from type 2 diabetes. 2 to 3 months back my weight was around 57 kg and when nearly 2 weeks back I checked my weight, I found it was 60 kg - it was a slight surprise for me, as my eating patterns were slightly disturbed as I moved to a new work location and needed to set up the rented accomodation, so I was thinking the weight might have gone down to 55 kg, but to my surprise it reached 60 kg.
You may be prediabetic and just need to keep an eye on things for a while, but I wouldn't get too worried just yet. Recommended blood glucose levels may vary for every individual depending on the body type and health thus, you should discuss this with your healthcare team.
In case, blood sugar level goes down below about 60 or 65 milligrams per deciliter, one can experience symptoms like mild tremors, feeling of hunger, maybe a little racing of the heart. Then on seeing the wound, the doctor suggested i should go for blood test to check my sugar level. But get used to daily exercise, drinking mostly water, and mostly removing (or greatly reducing) anything high glycemic from your diet. Anyhow, considering you are barely above the range of normal you will probably be quite successful at managing with lifestyle. Next day morning before breakfast I went for blood test and the reading came as 102 with normal range of 70-110. Her eyesight came back in no time, and when she got retested a couple of weeks later, the nurse said she'd never seen anyone bring their sugar levels down so quickly!
So my weight is less as per my body, but it has been the same skinny condition since my childhood. White potatoes, white pasta, white rice, sugar, candy, pop, juice, pastries, bagels, anything highly processed and quite possibly things you can't imagine just yet.
Then the doctor advised to go for blood test again after 2 hours of having breakfast and the reading came as 150 with normal range of 90-160.
So the sugar level was found to be high in my body and I think I just got checked before actually having diabetes disease. Then my family has started my food restrictions of mainly to have no sugar in my diet like tea without sugar ( it tasted awful when i first drank it, but after 3 to 4 cups, it is ok - i used to drink nearly 5 to 6 cups of tea daily, but now even without sugar still i am drinking tea nearly 5 times in a day - may be it is my addiction to tea), no rice, no potato, no deserts and no sweets - i love to eat sweet things and damn no sweets for me now. If you have a vitamin store anywhere in your area, you should be able to find something that combines minerals and herbs to control blood sugar. You will need to check your blood glucose levels regularly and find a diabetic educator so you know how much to eat, how to count carbs, how much insulin to take, and so on.
