Fluctuating blood levels. Reduces after exercise but rises up again. - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you ?
I wanted to check few things about diabieties
yes, please do ask.
mine present level of sugar fasting is around 120-130
last year I came to know of high sugar - which was 197 fasting
since then I ahve completely avoided intake of sugar in any form
in between for a month I had a regular exercise also
and sugar level came down to 109-110 fasting after exercise before exercise it was 115-117
now again it is at 120-130 fluctuates at this levle
mine first HB1c test was around 8
after 4-5 months it was less than 7
what do you suggest
i am on no medication
ok any dietry suggestions
There is no need to worry about the recent fasting sugar levels
why it is high 120-130 ?
As the sugar levels can fluctuate even during exercise if there is any change in the diet pattern
The timing of the food, the type of foods and the carbohydrate content of the food influence the sugar levels even if you do exercises to control the same
Do concentrate on the diet and avoid carbohydrate foods to control the sugar levels within limit.
Exercise will add to the effect
i dont take potatoes, rice and eat chapaties of mix ( wheat, bajra, maize, chana powder) is this ok
what other should i avoid to control sugar
Yes, do continue on the same
Do consume foods with high fiber content
Vegetables salads,Green leafy vegetables, fruits like XXXXXXX papaya etc.
XXXXXXX & papaya are sweet - will they not raise the sugar level
Papaya may mildly rise the sugar but XXXXXXX is good even for diabetics
Psyllium husk is what ?
Its a husk which helps to make the stool bulk also reduce the sugar absorption
It is available with brand name ISABGOL
ok - when should I take it & how much
A spoon of husk in a glass of water after food in the nights
There would be no problem in taking it for long
is my sugar level under control or do i need to visit a specialist ?
For now I would consider it near range
There is no need to worry
and what about intake of sweets or any sweet item
Do restrict the sweets
restricy or completely stop - what is your advise
I would say to restrict. One or two rarely may not cause any problem
ok - great
thanks for the advise doctor
Is there anything else I can help you with ?
no thanks - appreciate it
You are welcome
Bye for now
