After food blood sugar 153. Should it be controlled by medication or diet? - Online Doctor Chats
How are you doing?
Dr XXXXXXX i am doin gud, hv a query with regard to my husbands blood sugar levels
Sure, Please go ahead
his after food count is shoing 153, while it should be within the range of 150
should he start medication or can he control with diet and exercise as it is 3 points more than usual
This is not diabetes
This can be controlled with the right diet and exercise
He needs to lose some weight
No medication is needed at this point in time
Moreover, if we arrest it at this stage, we can delay or possibly prevent the development of diabetes
ok what kind of diet our staple food is rice and wheat, should we introduce ragi or something
I will explain both parts to you
First, about the exercuse
walks for 20 mins is done for 5 days as of now
He needs to do a brisk walk for 50 minutes atleast 5 days a week
Apart from that, yoga like about 25 suryanamaskars and pranayama like kapalbhati will also be helpful
Second part is diet
Breakfast is must
It needs to be taken within 1 hour of eating
What do you have currently?
chapathis, rice items usually
Avoid rice items
He can have 1-2 chapattis + some vegetable/dal
Or he can have poha with vegetables
Or wheat flakes+milk
Then in lunch and dinner, it would 1-2 chapattis+dal+vegetable+salas
can he have rice once a day say for dinner?
At tea time, he can take 1 cup tea without sugar with 1-2 XXXXXXX biscuits
If you must have rice, have it for lunch
and switch to brown rice
It has more fiber
and is much better overall than white rice
Every 3-4 hours basically, he needs to have something small and healthy
what abt fruits, any particular fruit to be avoided?
We have one here
should I tell my customer care team to contact you?
About fruits, mangoes, grapes, sapota , litchi, banana is to be avoided
Are you there?

They will do that
Is there anything else I can help you with?
no thats it thank u very much

Have a good day ahead
