Thank you for the query.
It would be good, had you mentioned your father's height, weight (for calculation of BMI) and the type of job he is into (sedentary, moderate, heavy). The daily calorie needs of the body are calculated with the help of these parameters.
As per the information provided, you father is 58yrs old, hyperglycemic (raised PPBS), dyslipidemic (raised cholesterol) and borderline uric acid level. To check for his diabetic control/status please get a HbAic level done (if not already checked). His SGPT levels are slightly high (maybe due to fatty liver disease associated with diabetes, though i cannot say it with surety, without checking other parameters. I would like to know whether he is hypertensive or not.
In Diabetic patients, consumption of food with low Glycemic Index is preferred (since they do not cause the sudden post prandial surge of blood sugar). Fruits like Apple and grapefruit, vegetable consumption, high fibre diet (whole grain breads and cereals) and legumes constitute these. Consumption of a whole fruit is always preferred instead of fruit juice (specially the packed and canned ones). Refined carbohydrates (white bread, fast food), refined grains, high GI food (potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn) and carbonated drinks are totally prohibited. Since he is also dyslipidemic, apart from the above, saturated fat consumption (butter, ghee etc) have to be kept at the minimum. Polyunsaturated (PUFA) and Monounsaturated (MUFA) fats are preferred.
For his uric acid he has to avoid purine rich diets like Red meat and sea food. Food like tomato and asparagus should be taken in reduced quantities. Alcohol consumption is to be avoided (also since his SGPT levels are raised).
It is difficult to set up a diet chart without knowing the BMI and lifestyle of the individual in question. Please visit your physician, who can give you a diet chart as per the specifications.
Hope this helps you out.
Regards,
