An Apple A Day Keeps Diabetesaway

An Apple A Day Keeps Diabetesaway

Add fresh fruits to your diet if you want to get rid of diabetes. Eat an apple everyday! (Source: File Photo) ALSO READ | 10 ways to stay away from diabetes Although the health benefits of diets including fresh fruit and vegetables are well established, the sugar content of fruits has led to uncertainty about associated risks of diabetes and of vascular complications of the disease. Huaidong Du of the University of Oxford, Oxford, United Kingdom and colleagues studied nearly 500,000 people participating in the China Kadoorie Biobank over about 7 years of follow-up, documenting new cases of diabetes and recording the occurrence of vascular disease and death in people with pre-existing diabetes. The researchers found that people who reported elevated consumption of fresh fruit had a lower associated risk of developing diabetes in comparison with other participants (adjusted hazard ratio [aHR] 0.88, 95 percent CI 0.83-0.93), which corresponds to an estimated 0.2 percent reduction in the absolute risk of diabetes over 5 years. In people with diabetes, higher consumption of fresh fruit was associated with a lower risk of mortality (aHR 0.83, 95 percent CI 0.74-0.93 per 100g fruit/d), corresponding to an absolute decrease in risk of 1.9 percent at 5 years, and with lower risks of microvascular and macrovascular complications. In addition to the health benefits of consuming fresh fruit, Du and colleagues emphasize the value of their findings for Asian populations where fruit consumption is commonly restricted in people with diabetes. The main limitation of this observational study is that the effects of fruit consumption can be difficult to distinguish from those of participants other dietary and behavioural characteristics.

Do You Know About Diabetes Diet?

Do You Know About Diabetes Diet?

Diabetes is fast becoming a potential epidemic in India, with more than 62 million suffering from the disease. Do you know about 'Diabetes diet'? (Getty Images) Diabetes is fast becoming a potential epidemic in India, with more than 62 million suffering from the disease. The number is just growing. While diabetes is not curable, it is treatable and diet is a key element in diabetic control. Mumbai-based women entrepreneur Namita Ambani has launched a healthy Diabetic-friendly meal service, 'Diabetic Meal Box' that is dietician and nutritionist certified. Here's an exclusive: What are the common eating mistakes that a diabetic person commits? Kinjal Shah : Diabetics eat a lot of fruits, thinking they are having more fiber. It is true that fruits have fiber but they have natural sugar as well. So eating excess of fruits will lead to increase in blood sugar levels. Diabetics know oats are good source of fiber and help in controlling blood sugar. Many of them tend to have oats along with other breakfast items. This increases the overall carbohydrate content of the meal. We serve either roti or rice in our meal and not both unless the customer specifically asks for it. What are the common diet recommendations for a diabetic person? Kinjal Shah: They have to include more fiber and protein in their diet. They lead to slow release of glucose in the blood stream. They should limit carbohydrate intake to 50 - 55 per cent. If someone is already consuming 80 per cent carbs, we don't cut it down immediately but we try to bring the percentage down gradually. It is also important to eat five to six small meals in a day. And the time gap between meals should not exceed more than four hours. Moreover, fat consumption should be limited. The fat that is used to prepare vegetable and dal Continue reading >>

Indian Diet For Diabetes

Indian Diet For Diabetes

When it comes to a condition like diabetes, there’s plenty of information available and that is a cause of worry too. The question remains, what suits you best? To know that, it is important to first analyze the type of diabetes you are suffering from. There are only two well-known types of diabetes, one is non insulin dependent (NIDDM) or Type-II Diabetes, and the other is insulin-dependent (IDDM) or Type-I Diabetes. One of the factors that differentiate the two types is the diet a person would need to essentially follow. Indian food habits being such crucial aspects of a lifestyle, it becomes imperative to determine the perfect diet to be followed by individuals suffering from respective types of diabetes. What to Watch out for While determining the diet for a diabetic, it is important to consider complications like high blood pressure or cholesterol that they may be prone to. As the doctor would advise, a simple and balanced diet, in adherence to the person’s calorie requirement, works best. High fibre foods like dalia, green vegetables, fruits such as apple, peach and guava are very good for diabetes. Food items low on fibre content but high on carbohydrate have to be removed and fatty foods are a complete no-no. An Ideal Diet Planning an entire day is another important part of a diabetic’s diet and that can be done with the help of the following chart, which takes care of the diabetes type. Diet Chart for Type-I Diabetic Breakfast: Boiled egg, corn flakes, brown bread toast, tea or coffee (no sugar) Brunch: Fruits, juice (without sugar) Lunch: Two chapattis, curry, veggies (seasonal and green), bitter gourd (karela), salad, raita Evening Tea: Sandwich, toast, or baked snacks Dinner: Two chapattis, dal, veggies (cabbage, capsicum), salad, sugar-free dessert Di Continue reading >>

5 Biggest Fears That Diabetics Have

5 Biggest Fears That Diabetics Have

Diabetes is one of the most common lifestyle disorders and it clearly comes with its set of fears. Diabetes and its fears (Thinkstock photos/Getty Images) Diabetes is one of the most common lifestyle disorders and it clearly comes with its set of fears. Dr K M Prasanna Kumar, senior Endocrinologist and Diabetologist Center for Diabetes & Endocrine Care (CDEC) share some common fears that people share and how he counsels them. Injections don't hurt anymore. Today, there is an array of needles that can be used, which have shorter needle sizes than before, are thinner, and sharper. Insulin pens, for instance, are very easy to operate when you need to inject yourself. Ideally, your doctor should guide your first dose, and also share some literature with you so you know you are injecting correctly. The idea is to inject into the fat, not the muscle. You don't necessarily have to injetc your stomach. The back of the upper arm, the hips, the outer side of the thighs, are all possible areas. Try and use the same area at the same time of the day. For instance, if you inject in the stomach close to breakfast, then use the thigh at bedtime. Insulin is absorbed fastest from the stomach, followed by the arm, leg, and slowest from the buttocks. So if you are going to eat a meal, you will need to have it covered with insulin in the abdomen. Again, you don't need to keep injecting in the same spot. If you do keep injecting at the same spot, little fat globules will form under the skin that appear rubbery outside. These will likely disappear in time, but it's better to prevent this in the first place. Think of a diabetes diagnosis as a driving lesson. When you are learning to drive, and even in the first year or so of driving, you need to be conscious of the gear, the clutch, the accel Continue reading >>
