Diabetes is a metabolic disorder and is not a disease. It is caused by the inadequacy of the insulin hormone or due to its improper functioning. It is accompanied by an increase in blood glucose levels.
A healthy lifestyle, regular exercise and strict dietary regimen, helps to overcome the situation. A three meal with three snack pattern is recommended. This helps to keep hunger at bay as well as regulate the blood glucose levels. This also prevents a steep or sudden rise in the blood glucose levels.
A balanced diet comprising of vegetables, legumes, fruits, whole grains and cereals is helpful. It is advisable to avoid Fruits such as mangoes, jackfruit, banana, grapes and chickoo. Oranges, papaya, apple and guava are preferred as they provide dietary fiber, which aids in the control of blood glucose levels.
Avoid all refined and fatty foods; instead go in for wholesome and fresh foods. Tinned and preserved foods contain a high concentration of sodium or sugar. Avoid alcoholic beverages and smoking. Poor eating habits often result in hypoglycemia. Improper eating schedules and eating at will is not recommended.

My Mom started limping, and has difficulty standing up and siting down the dinner table.
She is saying she has her arthritis, and high uric acid levels. I am ignorant of these things. What can be the causes of this?

If your mom has consulted with her doctor, she might be diagnosed with high uric acid levels. High uric acid levels are indicative of gouty arthritis. Excessive production of uric acid, by the breakdown of purines results in this condition. Certain purine rich foods should therefore, be avoided, such as organ meat, dried beans, peas, liver, kidney, beer, anchovies, alcoholic beverages, fish roes, herring, mackerel, scallops, game meats, brain, kidney, mushroom, asparagus, cauliflower, spinach, gravies, meat extracts, consommé and yeast.
Foods that benefit individuals with high uric acid levels are tofu, olive oil, nuts, salmon and dark berries. The American Medical Association recommends a low protein and high complex carb diet.
Fatty acids in salmon provide anti inflammatory effect so it would be better to include salmon in at least one of your daily meals. About thirty per cent of the body’s calories are obtained from fat so include Low fat dairy products in your diet.
Protein in the form of lean meat, poultry and soy should provide about fifteen per cent of calories. About four to six ounces of animal foods, in the form of fish, poultry and meat is useful. Egg provides good quality protein. Foods that are recommended in moderation are wheat bran, oatmeal, wheat germ, pork, beef, seafood and lentils.
Drink about two to three liters of water to dilute the uric acid, from your system, thereby expelling the same. Maintain a healthy bodyweight, as obesity is a common problem encountered by those with high uric acid. Obesity, in turn increases the uric acid production by the body.
My sister is a uric acid patient i.e her uric acid level keeps fluctuating. i wanted to know what kind of food should be served to her to keep it at a normal level all the time. She’s a Starbucks regular cuastomer.
Does coffee lower uric acid levels in the blood?
(Kify follower: c/o Ma’am Dahl Jan 28, 2016)
When you suffer from gout or hyperuricemia (high levels of uric acid) it’s very likely that you’ve been told to be cautious with your diet. Choosing between foods, that would have once taken you a moment, now seems to take an eternity, as you agonize over the risks and benefits of each ingredient.
Skip the pork chops and beef rolls and choose low uric acid foods like tossed salads with cabbage, parsley and green leafy vegetables. Gulp down large glasses of orange and sweet lime juice or a fresh banana milkshake. Sauté soy chunks…they serve as a good substitute for meat.
Following a uric acid reduction diet will help you make your way to a healthier, more energetic life!
With conflicting information from various sources - some saying that coffee’s good for hyperuricemia and others saying it’s bad; you’re at the end of your tether and are probably ready to toss out your diet plans. Before you give up or decide to make any drastic changes to your diet, it may be a good idea to make sure if the food or ingredient in question, like coffee, is actually bad for you.
So here it is! There is no conclusive research or study to prove coffee’s beneficial effect on uric acid levels. However, the June 2007 issue of Arthritis Care & Research published an article about a large scale study examining the relationship between levels of uric acid and the amount of coffee consumed. The study concluded that high consumption of coffee did result in lowered levels of uric acid, but this change was not brought about by caffeine.
Something other than caffeine was found to have caused it. Another study conducted by the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada based on the U.S. Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, reported similar results. While the increased consumption of coffee may lower uric acid levels, it could aggravate or even cause other unrelated health problems. This is why coffee does not appear on most lists of uric acid foods.
