Brief Answer:
Diabetic Low Fat Diet

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for contacting healthcare Magic.

I have gone through the reports, which you have shared with us. I could find out the Serum GGT levels are unusually high. Even the SGOT and SGPT levels are on the higher side. With regards to this, we recommend you to consult your physician or opt “Ask a Specialist” service from HealthcareMagic.

However you may start following the below mentioned diet for better blood sugar control.

Early Morning:
Cinnamon Water- 1 glass (Cinnamon powder-1/4 tsp in a glass of lukewarm water)
Fenugreek or Methi Sprouts- 2 Tbsp.

Breakfast:
Whole wheat bread - 2-3 slices / Vegetable Poha, Upma, XXXXXXX Semiya - 1 cup / Rava Idli or Wheat Dosa - 2 no with Sambhar - ¾ cup / Cereals with skimmed milk(without Sugar) - 1 cup / Vegetable stuffed chappathi(without oil) - 2 no etc.

Mid-Morning:
Fruits - 1 no or Cut fruits-¾ Cup

Lunch:
2 dry chapatti + boiled rice 1 katori OR 3 dry chapatti
Sabji -1 katori
Dal preparations – 1 katori OR Skimmed curd / raita
Salad - 1 katori

Evening Snacks:
Flavored Green Tea - 1 Glass with High fiber biscuits- 2 nos
Late Evening Snacks:
Bhel/ Plain pop Corn etc. - ½ cup or Vegetable Sandwich/ Khakra- 1 no

Dinner:
2 chappathi + vegetable 1 katori + skimmed buttermilk 1 glass + salad 1 katori.

Here are some simple diet related tips to help you understand the type to food that you may include in your diet routine.

Avoid simple sugars like glucose, honey, candies, sugar, chocolates, ice creams, fried food and refined food like white bread. Fatty dairy products like cheese, cream, mayonnaise and butter are best avoided. However you are required to maintain a fat intake of 3-4 tsp. per day as it is important for the absorption of fat soluble vitamins and other nutrients.

Restrict fruits rich in carbohydrates like XXXXXXX sapota, grapes, banana, custard apple and avocado and vegetables like potato, colocasia, yam, pumpkin and tapioca. Check the intake of nuts and dry fruits. Nuts provides the good fat and hence a moderate use is always beneficial. However avoid taking the fried or salted nuts. Eat the allowed fruits along with the skin but at the same time make sure that the fruits are washed properly. Avoid coconut and its products, except coconut water which may be included in moderation.

Ensure that there is sufficient intake of raw vegetables and salads in the diet. Raw vegetables, salads and fruits add the much needed fiber to the diet. It delays the absorption of sugar and helps in maintaining the blood sugar levels. Promotes regular bowl movements and support weight maintenance by regulating the calorie intake. Also include the cooked beans and peas and whole grain products in the diet.

Limit the intake of white bread and buns, cakes and cookies as these are mostly made with refined flour and contain Trans or Saturated fat and sugar.
Consider taking oils like soybean, mustard, canola, safflower, rice XXXXXXX olive and corn oil as these are good sources of unsaturated fat. The intake of these should be limited to 5-6 tsp. per day.

Add legumes and pulses in the diet. Low fat milk and its products are also good sources of quality protein. If you are non-vegetarian, than limit the intake of non-veg to lean cuts of chicken fish and take only the whites of egg.
Knowledge about the Glycemic Index (GI) of food is important. GI is a measure that indicates how fast the food would get converted to glucose after digestion. Higher GI value indicates a higher conversion ratio of the diet to glucose. Therefore it is advisable to avoid the foods with high GI values.

High GI foods: potato, banana, grapes, custard apple, sugar and foods that contain sugar, refined cereals and its products like white bread and corn bread, white rice, corn and its products. Also the drinks like boot, XXXXXXX etc. has high GI values as they contain added sugar.

Low GI foods: Low fat dairy, vegetables and fruits (except those mentioned in the high GI list), whole grains and cereals, salads, oats, barley, pulses and non-sugary peanut butter.

My final tip is a simple yet the most important one…
TAKE SUFFICIENT WATER AND AVOID ALCOHOL AND CARBONATED BEVERAGES.
Doing regular physical activities for 40 to 45 minutes every day would help. However you consult your physician about your exercise routine.

Remember that Diabetes Management is a continuous process, a well-planned diet and activity routine is crucial to its success.

Thanks,
Neethu
