Can a person with diabetes eat natural sugar from fruits
My daddy is a borderline diabetic, which means he doesn t exactly quite have diabetes but is in the risk of getting it. We ve already tried to make him eat less sugar to keep from getting it, but he always wants what he can t have. Is it okay if he eats natural sugar in fruits?
Natural sugar in fruits also can elevate sugars, however you can giv ehim one fruit per day and cut down on his other carbohydrate intake, replace with more of high fibre vegetables and proteins. If he is not keeping diet control, he can anytime get pushed into frank diabetes from borderline diabetes.
I was told i am on borderline 11 weeks back and after 9 weeks of restraint (only papaya/apple daily) i started, eating watermelon, raisins figs, kharbooja, papaya, apple daily in dinner. Now all my tea (5-7 cups a day) i am using honey instead of the artificial sweetner.
Yes i am also eating cinnamon power, fenugreek powder, turmeic in milk, lots of onion, garlic, beet carrot.
My last FBS was 60.
My last PPBS after consuming substantial qnty of rice was 96.
Yes all fast food/junk food, engineered oils and fats are completely banned. Thank god Mosanto couldn't succeed in their last attempt to push BT Brinjal. So eating Brinjal also.
sugar content in any form be it natural or direct sweets is going to increase blood sugar. Better option is to remain under observation with restraints as the threshold to slip from borderline to confirmed diabetic is very low.
the herbs mentioned above fenugreek, cinamon , turmeric are known to reduce blood glucose and can be administered as medicine in boreder line cases.

Often lately, I've been rather light-headed and drained of energy after eating lunch (when I mostly notice it) right about 1 - 2 hours after eating. I'm currently overweight and concerned about blood sugar levels, and diabetes but, that all checked out okay on my last fasting lab 3 months ago. What could be the cause??

I have friend who has hep C and diabetes 2. He was in the hospital for dehydration and heat exhaustion. They hydrated him and he responded quite well. All his vitals were good. They put him on an IV drip with ativan and hydrocone, something for gastric acid and insulin. He has never had insulin before. But he started to shiver and tremble. He was on this drip for two days. He cannot function very well now. It is hard for him to control his elimination functions and he tremble quite a bit. I feel that the hydrocodone affect him very bad it was 5/500 because of the tylenol in it. . Before he dehydrated, he had a panel done and he was stable in all areas. His liver enzymes were elevated a little; but he was basically stable. What can he take to help recover?
