      Hi Humera,

      yes the levels are high , and the swelling may be due to either diabetes or bp . one very clear thing is that if he manages to lose some weight, he will have a better control over his problems and he will become healthy. weight may also be causing the swelling. if his joiints are stressed.

      Hello sir ,

      Thanks for reading at Dietburrp . your diet seems ok . and the exercise too. the low sugar control is probably because of your age more than food related. so what we can do is include a 10 – 15 mins walk at home after your 3 main meals. also please follow the tips mentioned in the article above. its good that you have given up on alcohol and sweets. this will help you in better control .

  9. Kamal says

    Hi Madam,
    This is kamal, 25 year old. I am type 1 diabetic patient. I have this disease from last 6-7 years . Right now my wait is 73-77 kg. I am taking the insulin regularly. 30 units in morning and 25 units in evening.
    I am taking the first dose of insulin in morning before taking breakfast but the second dose I am taking in night before having dinner. So I am doing right or I need to change this schedule. Please guide.
    Now-a-days I am feeling hungry after 1.5-2 hours of having dinner. Also, sometimes I am going toilet within the interval of 2-2.5 hours(mostly in evening).
    Actually my daily work schedule is so busy and I am travelling so much. Due to this I am not paying attention to this area.
    Please guide for the whole matter and if you can pls suggest the diet also.

    • says

      Hi Kamal,

      see , the dosage of insulin and timings are decided by the doctor based on your blood sugar level, your control and your lifestyle. if you feel hungry after 1.5 hours of dinner, you must tell your doctor, there is a chance that he would consider lowering the dosage , as this might lead to hypoglycemic episodes in your sleep , which is very risky.

      if your lifestyle has changed from the time doctor prescribed you the insulin, you need to tell your doctor. infact every time your lifestyle changes or activity level changes , food pattern changes , you must observe how your body is reacting and let the doctor know if it needs to be changed.

      you cannot ignore your diabetes . health is foremost and everything else is directly dependent on it . so please give it the needed importance and attention, to live a healthy and successful life.

  13. carmo says

    Hi Mam,

    I am T2 diabetic for the last 20 years. lease advise if my daily diet plan is Ok becausde my FBS is ok but the PPS is erratic;

    Bfast: 2 diabetic wheat chapatties + 1 small bowl of oats.( it shot my PPS from 95 FBS to 233 PPS this morning inspite of additional insulin)

    Mid morning; 1 diet bread of 1 apple

    Lunch 1 small portion of brown rice with salad and meat.

    Evening: 2-3 biscuits + tea without sugar

    Dinner; meat +veg+salad

    Bedtime: 1 cup low fat milk.

    Is it better to substitute the oats in the morning with white of an egg instead? Possibly High GI foods push my PPS up?

    Kindly advise your suggestion.

    Thank you,


    • says

      Hi Carmo,

      yes you can replace oats with egg whites , but there is another way out .. you can have oats for breakfast and then walk for 10 mins at home this will help in reducing pps Levels … you havent mentioned your age. make sure your body can tolerate the amount of protein you are in taking.

      • carmo says

        Hi Payal,
        Thanks for your advice. Iam 63 years old. I have been losing some weight lately. What is the best way to push it up again?
        I do yoga in the mornings and walk for 1 hour in the evenings.


          • carmo says

            My medication is:
            Novorapid: 6 units morning/6 at lunch/6 at dinner
            Lantus: 17 at bedtime

            Is the listed diet OK?

          • says

            yes , but monitor you blood sugar for the first 2 days , and then if it suits follow . i am of a strong feeling that your inslin dosage can be reduced with this diet . do not forget to walk

        • says

          Hi Carmo,

          before i advice you anything , i also need to know about your medications , as the food intake has to be matched up with medicine / insulin intake too.

  17. Ravi Kumar says

    Hello Madam ,
    In Sep 14 due to unusual hunger and fatigue i checked my sugar level and it was 115 in fasting and 180 after breakfast. I was shocked so i left all sugar and oily food ( NO Sugar & Boiled food only ) and walk for 25 min in morning with normal exercise and 15 min walk in night after dinner. After one week, the result was 104/110. I was happy and again start taking little sugar and less oil food. Initially nothing was happen but now from last one month again i am facing same problem ( unusual hunger and fatigue ). If i take strict diet plan my sugar level becomes normal but if i take little sugar or oily food it touches 210 level or even high. I am also feeling swearing during extreme hunger ( face two time in last month). My age is 39 years and height is 5’9 and weight is 92 Kg. ( In Sep it was 97 Kg ). Till date i have not consult with any doctor and confused in several question :- 1) Whether i am diabetes or not? 2) Should i consult to doctor or manage with diet plan ? 3) If i am diabetic then is it possible for me to live normal life after strict diet plan for six month or a year? 4) Being a north Indian what should be my diet plan? 5) I tour frequently due to my work assignments so what would be my diet plan during tour? 6) My Father also diagnosed diabetic last year so what precaution should i take to prevent my child from diabetic.
    Please help. My email id is

    • says

      Hi Ravi ,

      Thank you for reading at Dietburrp. I feel you should consult a doctor. it is good that your sugar is coming in control and you have lost weight. this will help in managing your blood sugars effectively. but it is important to consult the doctor as you faced hypoglycemic episode twice during a month. it is not safe. during such an episode please take a tsp of sugar in water or take an orange candy or anything sweet.

      constant falling down and rising of blood sugar is not a good sign . yes you can manage the condition well with minimum dosage and eventually with good control you can come off the medicines too.

      please find your other answers inline –

      1) Whether i am diabetes or not?
      – fasting blood sugars above 125 mg / dl is a deadline and then the person is de3clared diabetic. take normal food for a month and get your sugars checked. the doctor can also advice you on checking your Hb A1c levels. this helps in deciding if a person is diabetic.

      2) Should i consult to doctor or manage with diet plan ?
      – yes , please consult a doctor . you can manage better after an assurance from him . it is not safe to play blind on these symptoms.

      3) If i am diabetic then is it possible for me to live normal life after strict diet plan for six month or a year?
      – yes very much . diabetes is all about better management . every diabetic can lead a healthy and normal life with moderation and proper lifestyle.

      4) Being a north Indian what should be my diet plan?
      – you can try the above mentioned plan , or i can plan a personalized diet plan for you based on your current food pattern and doctors prescription.

      5) I tour frequently due to my work assignments so what would be my diet plan during tour?
      – this is a tough one . i would need details of the availability and nature of travel . but i again suggest you to please see a ddoctor ., travelling really puts a diabetic in for a troll. and in your condition its even more risky.

      6) My Father also diagnosed diabetic last year so what precaution should i take to prevent my child from diabetic.
      – his must be due to his old age. but frankly genetics play an important role. if you want to prevent your kid from acquiring diabetes or any related ailments, you must practice a healthy lifestyle for him as well as your self . make sure he is actively involved in sports and is physically active. make sure his weight remains in a healthy range. and he develops healthy eating habit from this age itself. let him enjoy pizzas and burgers, but at home , make sure he eats everything from oats to daliya to brown rice and whole wheat flour rotis.

  20. Mandy says

    Hi mam

    I am type 1 diabetic since 20 years currently I m 30 and suffering from hypothyroid too , my weight is close to 55 since 7 or 8 years, is there any particular diet plan for increasing weight ?

    • says

      Hi Mandy ,

      what is your height. well in best interest of yours, i would ask you to aim for fitness. you never know when your hypothyroidism would make you gain weight. it is best to exercise for fitness , that is 30 mins. and at well , without thinking about weight gain or weight loss.

  21. Bretts says

    I have been sort of mixing and matching my diet as I dont have the flexibility to make everything that is mentioned here but I have managed to get it down to between 85 and 95 now from about 290 as I was at 16.2mmol when I was diagnosed.
    I stay in 5’s all day and have made major changes to my diet but I seem to be gaining weight still, with Diwali approaching I will miss some sweets but here we go thats life.
    I have also had very high carb meals and tested next day to find myself completely normal.
    Sometime I feel I might not have diabetes, is there a way to check or something that happens with diabetics and not with other people?

    • says

      Hi Deepali,

      i am pretty sure that this diet will help you ., but further more some personalization is needed based on your medications. you must be on insulin right ? unless you monitor both medications and food intake, i doubt if any diet would work for you.

      • deepali kansotia says

        Ma’am I take huminsulin r and lantus . And these are my doses.
        Huminsulin – before breakf. -15u, bef lunch – 15 u,before dinner-15u.
        Lantus 10 u in moring and 13 u at night.

        My fasting is usually normal and my PP is around 200-300

        P.s. – I keep changing my doses according to my sugarlevels with the help of my doctors..

        • says

          Hi Deepali,

          since when do you have diabetes and what is your current age ? you need to manage your food in a way that it can help you reduce the insulin dose. if you are type 1 diabetic , we need to manage your entire lifestyle.

      • deepali kansotia says

      Hi Pawan ji ,

      Please do not take stress. diabetes can be managed easily with a little intervention in your diet and exercise. if you following the above given diet for 2 weeks, you would definitely see good changes and your sugar level will come down too. you need to incorporate 10 mins walk after every meal to reduce your pp sugar , and a 45 mins walks in the evening or at night to reduce your fasting blood sugar. start with this and i asure you will see very good changes within a month.

        yes it is possible to gain control over your sugar levels and get off medicine. but you will now have to be very careful with your food choices and exercises. please follow the above given plan for a 15 days period and check you sugar levels again. i am sure you will benefit from it. but make sure you check on your sugar levels to be on a safer side .

          • says

            Hi ,

            if you asting sugar is high , walk for 45 mins in the evening. but if your pp sugar is high , walk for 15 mins after lunch and dinner. morning walks help in keeping good control throughout the day. so pick the walk timings based on your over all requirement.

  25. bret says


    I have just been diagnosed with diabetes and since i am in uk here they emphasise more on proteins than anything else. I saw your diet plan but my sugar is about 16mmol which i think is about 280 as per the indian way of calculating it. I want to just get this down to about 6 or 7 which is the normal level, since our staple food is aata and chawal what can I replace these with can you please suggest. I have starting having methi ka paani but do i just have the water or do i need to eat the methi as well.

    • says

      Hi Bret,

      exercise wise – if your pp blood sugar is high , you need to walk for 10-15 min after each main meal. and if your fasting sugar is high, instead of morning walks, evening or late night walks will be more beneficial in getting your blood sugar levels down.

      diet wise, dont worry , try following the above mentioned diet chart , this diet chart had a positive effect on 98% of my clients , a few exceptions where the case were severe and severe interventions were required. many of my clients were able to stop the medication or decrease the dosage bcoz of better sugar level control. In your case for the blood levels that you have mentioned , the above given diet along with the exercises the way i mentioned above will help you in a great way. follow this for 15 days and get your levels checked. i am sure you would be benefited too. in case if you come across any problem while following the chart, plz write to me and i shall try to help you out with it.


      • bret says


        Thank you so much for your comments, I am trying to include walks after meal to my lifestyle I have got it down to low 9’s all day today pp and after meals too, Fenugreek seed water and methi in everything I eat, well almost. Can you please clarify about chapatis, is pilsbury aata ok it says 100% whole wheat flour, I dont know if this is ok or we also get wholemeal flour which is brown and with some bits of the grain. I am adding chana aata to the pilsbury aata at the moment.

        • says

          Hi Bret,

          Yes this aatta you are mentioning is fine , you can take the whole meal flour . its brown bcz its not sieved and not refined. its good dont worry . you can have it without any doubt.

  26. Brett says


    I am based in uk and just been diagnosed with diabetes, my sugar level is about 288 and as per mmol which is what we use in uk it is 16. I have no history of diabetes in my family and this comes as a shock to me but since I am indian I certainly eat rice and rotis but in uk they ask you to cut everything down to minimum, I normally use pilsbury aata but i have just started using wholemeal aata with chana flour added to it.

    Since my sugar level is so high i want to avoid anything sweet at all to begin with and then start normal food in moderation as per the diet plan but what can I swap the rotis and rice with as that is like our staple diet, I have put myself on proteins and lean meat for now but I dont know how long I can survive on it. I am on metamorfin 1gram a day.

    Also what kind of aata can I use to make rotis, is wholemeal good enough or can I use something else as well.

    There is a pilsbury 5 grain aata available here is that something i can swap with?
    Wheat: 90%, Multigrains: 10%(soy, oats, maize, barley, ragi[nachni], chana dal).

    • says

      Hi Bret ,

      I have answered a few of your question in my earlier reply to you. about the flour, yes you can use this multigrain flour to control your sugar levels. this should be helpful. also you can replace the usual white rice with brown rice, and instead of eating plain , add a lot of veggies to iut and make pulav or add these veggies to your usual dal. having a plate full of salads before your meals will also help in decreasing your blood sugar level.

      avoiding sweets for some time seems a right decision. you can have fruits at midmeal time instead of having them with the meal. add green tea to your routine , this will help in clearing all the metabolic wastes. and if the increased sugar level is because of stress, it will help in getting the levels back to normal.

      hi Vasundhar,

      TYhank you for reading at Dietburrp. I am sorry , but prescribing medicines here will not be correct. plz see a good endocrinologist , who could study your mum’s case and prescribe accordingly. diet wise, you could ask her to follow the above givendiet chart, this will help in getting her sugar levels down. also ask her to walk for 10 mins each after breakfast, lunch and dinner. this will help in reducing her pp blood sugar levels. she can also take a glass of luke warm water + lemn after all three meals. this will help in better digestion and getting her to be more energetic.

      Hello Mr kumar,

      Instead of eating salads with your meal, have it 15 mins before your main meal. this will help better in controlling your appetite and sugar levels. fat free yogurts help too .

    Madam, I am 39 yrs age and diagnosed with diabetes. I am weighing more 20 kg to my ideal weight and blood suger level is Fasting 127 & PP 221. I read about crash diet (800 calorie per day for 8 weeks) which can eliminate Diabetes which is published by New castle university.
    Is it possible to cure diabetes with this diet plan and what will be the other health complication after completing for 8 weeks of the diet?

      hey i diabetes cannot be treated, it can only be managed well. i do not advocate any kind of crash diets and hence will suggest you otherwise. You can try the diet mentioned above, this will help you great deal to get your levels under normal.

But thnks to ur diet/exercise tips along with one dose/day of glyciphase 500 SR tablets its gone down to 90/107. Its constant and in last three months. I checked my cholesterol levels as well its 116. So i want to know whether mataformin reduces the cholesterol levels. I find myself very healthy.. no fatigue etc.. Should I still continue with medication? is it not possible to control glucose levels using regular exercise and diet?
    Thnks in advance…

      Hi Ajit,

      wow, Congratulations. I am so happy that my diet chart has helped you so well. actually only your doctor can decide if you should stop the medications. normally if your HB A1c value comes to normal, the doctors would suggest you to first minimize the dose and in the second test if it comes normal, they would stop medicine completly.

      It is alwaz safer to go by set methods. yes you can definately control your blood sugars with regular exercise and diet !

    • says

      Hi Sima,

      If its been 6 months, you can start with physical activities / exercises / gyming . With exercises you would be able to initiate weight loss. you can follow the above mentioned diet after 2-3 months from now, when you stop feeding the baby. so that the baby’s health remains unaffected.

  44. Sami says

      Hi Pradip,

      Thank you for reading at dietburrp. and congratulations on having controled your blood sugar level so well . although the levels are now in control, but once diabetes set in , you really got to watch your food or the levels keep rising and falling unduely. the best thing you can do is , enjoy every food , but not over do anything. at like a normal man would but still continue walking and avoiding excess sweets.

      Hi Mayaji,

      You can use the above mentioned diet plan. Also you need to walk for 10 mins after every meal to lower your post prandial blood sugar level. and walk for 30- 45 mins every evening (just 1 hour before dinner or after dinner ) to reduce your fasting blood sugar levels. this hass worked with a lot of my diabetic clients and many had to reduce or completely stop with the medications after they succeeded in reducing sugar with this tip !

  53. nitin says

    can you please suggest a diet chart with more eating options.
    I have not started any pills or insulin,can diet and exercise are enough for diabtese?

    • says

      Hi Nitin , Yes diet and exercise can help in controling the sugar levels to big extent, special in the first phase, but if the sugar levels are already very high, taking tabs is very essential. if you are close to border line diabetes , then diet and exercise can help you get the levels to normal. Basically a diabetic person can have anything he wishes to have, but in moderation. only thing is avoid direct sugar in form of sugar / sweets / honey / gurr / choklates / candy and other desserts.

    hello payal mam,

    • says

      Hi Nirmalaji,

      A single diet plan or exercise plan cannot help you for more than a month. as your body gets used to the routine and then the weight loss rate falls own, so you need to keep changing your diet and exercise plans every 20-25 days to lose weight in a good pace. for first month try the above given plan, it has all regional versions mentioned ( check article) and see how it suits you .. thn we can change the plan after a month. do follow the exercise part too..

      Thank you for stopping by and reading at DietBurrp. I really appreciate the progress you’re made so far and got your medications down to less. The weight loss can be due to degenration of muscles, this is age related and natural. Dont worry. What i will suggest is not to aim for weight gain, but for a better fitness level. the foods that you need to eat to gain weight may affect both your sugars and blood pressure. Hence to be safe and for optimum health, indulge in healthy eating. for ex – eat 10 soaked almonds every morning. if you are a non vegetarian, have egg white dishes for breakfast, if not have vegetable daliya, vegetable upama, and a glass of skimmed milk with some sugar free protein supplement that suits your age. or you can simply add skimmed milk powder to your glass of milk. avoid excess fat / carbs and sugars for weight gain , as they will equally affect your blood sugars and blood pressure which is even more risky. take walks every day like you are already doing . it will help you in maintaining fitness level. do yoga and meditation if you like, these are beneficial too. Be stress free and enjoy free times by indulging in activities you like. Happy minds and happy hearts have the fittest body !

      Just add a geriatric protein powder to your diet and this will help.
