Diabetic. Having severe pain in foot and back because of deficiency of Vitamin D. Suggest? - Online Doctor Chats
Please proceed with your query
Since when is this problem?
and as per reports this is because of defficiency of Vitamin D
last 3-4 months
Sorry about that
May I know your age?
Have you started taking Vitamin D supplement?
and one more thing that I am a diabetic patient also
sorry about that
As you are diabetic, you must be aware about how important it is to keep the blood sugars under normal limits
yes, I am trying that
I would suggest you to take a glass of milk without fail every day without sugar
Obviously, you need to take Vitamin D supplement too in view of the low levels
yes, I am taking a tablet once in a week
for Vitamin D
Please continue to take it
What is your latest blood sugar level?
I have tested that on Thursday
fasting and it was 162
a bit high
yes, it is
could you plz suggest me that how can I control it?
You must avoid direct sugars and high calorie foods
yes, that I have not taken since a long
but still I am fail to control it,
You must work out daily to maintain a healthy weight and maintain good insulin tolerance levels as well
What is your weight now?
its 52 Kg
It seems fine
When were you first diagnosed with Diabetes?
but I am under weight
actually I have that since last 10 years
That means - Diabetes?
even no body in my family has that
You must check if it is insulin dependent diabetes
its not inherit
In that case, you will have to take insulin injections to control the blood sugar levels
is it mandatory to take that insulin
I am mean no other way?
Yes, if it due to Insulin dependent diabetes
any side effects of that/
No major side effects as such
as I have heard that insulin is not good to take
The benefit would be better than risks and side effects
as once started then person has to depend on that life long?
ok, so once control it can be stopped?
could you please some more Vitamin D sources?
Sun light is the natural source of Vitamin D
You need to expose yourself to sun on a daily basis for 20 mins at least
and what should I have to take to gain some more weight
at least 5-7 kgs
You must take high protein food
Like pulses, wheat
and what all the foods I can take?
Green leafy vegetables
and which fruits?
since you are diabetic you cannot take more of bananas
Pomegranate is good too
thats the problem with me
Pomegranate, shall I have that?
But not in excess
as I really want to increase my weight
It would be ideal if you take a diet plan
but couldn't from last few years
so could you please give me that?
