I am 76 years old Male. I have diabetes Type 2 for the last about 10 years although there is no physical symptom. Apart from other medication I am on INSULIN twice a day, but there is no relief. I carry on my normal activities without hindrance. Is there any treatment to this ailment or should I live with it? Biswajit Sengupta

Ans: First goal of diabetes management should be an HbA1c report in the normal range for your age. Optimal diet, walking/ exercise and medicines/ Insulin as required. Once achieved, then dose/ medicines can be titrated/ adjusted.

Name: Vivekanand Age: 46 Height: 5.9 Weight: 79 Madam, I have one query. I am diabetic. I am taking medicine regularly. Since I am a diabetic, I am following all the rules of life -- taking medicine as prescribed by doctor; exercise regularly, eating balanced diet. Even though I am doing all these rules, my diabetes is not under control. So I need suggestion for this to control my diabetes.
Ans:

Every individual has a different body type, dosha balance, genetic history, along with other lifestyle aspects. Therefore, standard balance diets are not always the answer.

It is important to understand the root cause, as diabetes could be due to any of the factors such as lifestyle issues, genetics or even suppression of emotions and excessive stress.

To arrive at a suitable diet plan, you first need to know which food groups are spiking your sugar levels.

Consult a diabetics specialist; they recommend a glucose monitoring patch that studies your current diet for a few weeks or more. Based on that report you can create a diet plan with help of a nutritionist.

Ayurveda can also be of great help. Visit a certified Ayurvedic doctor to check your dosha balance and take required treatment.

Meanwhile, you should take time out for activities that make you happy like gardening, spending time outdoors with nature, etc.

Also start Anulom Vilom pranayama every morning and cut down on unhealthy practices like smoking and drinking, untimely eating, snacking on packaged products, etc.
