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.

A relative is type one diabetic. He had a mild heart attack 3 weeks ago followed by a massive heart attack 2 days later. The attack has left him with only 20% heart function. His legs are extremely swolen with fluid and because of this, cannot have surgery. He cannot lay down as fluid gets into his lungs. He has been re-admitted to hospital but doctors have not told us very much. He is 58 years old, not overweight and normally very active. He does not smoke and drinks only socially. Help?
Hi sir, my elder brother was suffering with frequent coughing since last 3 months. In chest x ray, Koch's lesion left upper mid zones was found. after that we consulted with the chest physician, he adviced forcreatinine, fasting blood sugar test, sputum test. His blood sugar was 361 mg/dl that is really surprising for us. because in our family nobody is diabetic. Even we never identified he may be diabetic. in case of sputum test, A.F.B. (++)was detected. now its clear to us that he having infection of tuberculosis. but still we are confused about the diabetes. due to diabetes he is having tuberculosis or after infection he became diabetic. his weight is approx. 64 kg. please let me know what is the right treatment for better cure of both diabetes and tuberculosis.
