It is obligatory for every adult man and woman to fast during the month of Ramadan. But most of the time the diabetic patients get in trouble while doing this duty. Because at this time they have to change their diet and medication schedule. And because of the change in their body, there is a mismatch between calories and medicine.
This can cause the blood sugar level to rise suddenly and decrease again. And this is exactly the reason why diabetics need to be prepared and trained in advance to fast during Ramadan. The type of problems that diabetic patients face during fasting: -Diabetic patients face various problems due to fasting. According to various studies, the level of hypoglycemia in the body of diabetic patients increases during the month of Ramadan. Dehydration is the main reason for not eating for a long time.
Excessive urination in hypoglycemia due to hot and humid weather and hard work can lead to dehydration. At the same time, the amount of electrolytes in the body can be reduced. As a result, there is a decrease in blood pressure and loss of consciousness, falling and getting injured, broken bones and other complications can occur. What to do for diabetics in Ramadan: - As a first preparation, diabetics should know whether their body is suitable for fasting.
If the level of sugar in the body is uncontrolled i.e. there is severe hypoglycemia or sugar deficiency, ketoacidosis or severe excess of sugar within three months then fasting should not be observed. In addition to diabetes, other physical problems such as liver problems, heart disease and kidney problems, but it is better not to fast. This list will also include pregnant diabetics and patients undergoing dialysis.
Among others, those who are controlling their sugars only through diet and exercise, or who are taking metformin, DPP4 inhibitors or glitazine, are safer to fast. Those who use insulin or drugs have some risks. In this case, they must know the dose and time of the new drug. In addition, the amount of food will be according to the doctor's advice Diabetes patient's eating habits: -The calorie demand of diabetics during Ramadan will remain the same.
At this time only food intake and time will change a bit. Isbagul bran, Tokma, lemon, raw mango or tamarind syrup with alternative sugar in Iftar is beneficial for these patients. It is better not to eat sweet fruit juice other than coconut. However, both sour and sweet fruit salads can be eaten. This will fill the deficiency of mineral salts and vitamins. In addition, raw gram can be eaten with a mixture of ginger, tomato paste, mint leaves and salt. Raw gram helps in lowering blood cholesterol and relieving constipation.
Meals should not be omitted in the evening (after Iftar). Of course you have to eat less. Dinner for diabetics in Ramadan will be equivalent to dinner at other times. The patient will be able to eat rice, but always keep a close eye on the amount of food allotted by the doctor. Cooked with light spices, any small and large fish and vegetables can be eaten regularly. In sehri (breakfast) take bread or rice according to your taste. The amount of sehri meal should be equal to the amount of lunch the other day.
Sehri may contain fish and vegetables. It is better to have either milk or pulses. Do not eat too much together in Iftar and eat many food step by step. This will not cause a sudden rise in blood sugar levels.? Medications and Insulin: -During the month of Ramadan, with the change in the timing of meals, the dosage and schedule of medicines and insulin will also change. And of course take the medicine at night by changing the time of the medicine with the advice of an experienced doctor.
This is because the dose of the drug depends a lot on the amount of sugar in the blood. And this is exactly the reason why the schedule of medicine cannot be changed by itself. Must consult a doctor.Exercise: -Everyone knows that exercise is very important for diabetics. And among those who exercise and walk a rule every day. This month, they must change their routine. Exercise and walking should not be done while fasting.
However, you can exercise one hour after Iftar and before Sehri. Warning: -* Those with diabetes who have any other complications, such as kidney disease, high levels of uric Abstain. * If you have problems with ulcers or gastritis, you must avoid deep-fried and salty foods. * If you are overweight, eat as little as possible and reduce the amount of oil in your diet. * Avoid excessive walking or heavy exercise while fasting. Because it can be dangerous to lower your blood sugar levels in the body. Diabetics must take special care of the body during Ramadan. Because if the body is not healthy, fasting may not be safe for these patients. Today's topic is written by a prominent homeopathic researcher in Bangladesh.
MM Mazed writes in his column...No one can say exactly how diabetes is a disease. But the history of diabetes is ancient. The first conception of diabetes was first discovered in 1862 in a pyramid in the ancient city of Thebes, Egypt, in 1550 BC. The Unani medicine, invented by Hippocrates, the father of science, in ancient Greece, had the concept of diabetes. It was then called zia beted, which means the secretion of succulent mucus. Billions upon billions of cells are working in our bodies every moment.
This work requires energy to be smoothly executed. The biggest supplier of energy is carbohydrates. These include rice, pulses, potatoes, vegetables, wheat, corn, etc. At the end of the complex reaction, these become simple molecules that can be absorbed into the cells of our body. This simple molecule is glucose. The glucose molecule is absorbed by the body's cells and produces energy through chemical reactions.
This energy keeps the body moving. But it takes a hormone to get glucose into the cell. Its name is insulin. In our body cells there is a channel through which glucose enters the body. The channel is closed normally. We can compare the whole thing as follows. Suppose a cell in a room is a body cell. And the door of the house is the channel for insulin to enter. The glucose channel is usually locked just as we lock the door for safety. Just as it takes a key to open a lock, it takes a key to open a glucose channel. This key is called insulin. Without insulin, glucose cannot enter the cell.
As a result, energy will not be produced in the cell. And if the cell does not get energy, it will not be able to do its job properly. But there is an endless supply of glucose in the blood. But the cells have to be starved. When blood glucose levels rise, the time and concentration of urine increases. This overall condition is known as diabetes mellitus or diabetes for short. Diabetes is another name for this disease of frequent urination.
There is another disease of almost the same type called diabetes incipidus, Wherever the patient urinates frequently. But ours Diabetes mellitus is a disease that we are all around with. Diabetes mellitus is a disease of normal healthy people. It increases two hours after taking food.* Types: We go back to the previous example. Suppose your house is locked. Now think, under what circumstances can you not enter the house? First, if you do not have the key. And secondly, if the lock does not work despite having the key.
There may be some other reasons for diabetes. Of these, maternal diabetes is particularly important. It is called in English. Pregnant women need more insulin than they normally need. Because insulin is engaged in many other functions in the human body. Now if the mother is unable to produce enough insulin, the body will naturally increase glucose. Pregnant women also secrete certain hormones from the placenta that are responsible for maternal diabetes.
These women do not have diabetes after childbirth. In addition, diabetes can be due to genetics. People with autism or Kleinfelter syndrome are more likely to develop diabetes. Diabetes can be caused by pancreatic problems as well; For example, if you have pancreatic cancer or infection, you may have diabetes.
Hormonal problems can also cause diabetes. Cushing's syndrome, or acromegaly, which is caused by hormones secreted by the thyroid gland, has an effect on diabetes. Some medications can also cause diabetes. Medications such as glucocorticoids, thiazides, or phenytoin, for example, may play a role in causing diabetes.
Infection with cyto-megalo-virus, congenital rubella virus, or coxsackie virus affects diabetes. * Symptoms of diabetes:The problem that most diabetics suffer from is frequent urination. As a result, the body loses fluid and becomes more and more thirsty for water. Diabetes, on the other hand, causes a 'cellular starvation' in the human body. As a result, the body sends a message to the brain that it is hungry. That is why patients with diabetes are hungry.
They lose weight despite eating a lot. Surrounded by fatigue all the time. If a wound is made somewhere, it does not want to heal easily. Increased attacks of various skin diseases. People with diabetes gradually lose their sexual ability.* Suggestions: -Weight is very important for diabetics. If you are overweight, it must be reduced through diet and exercise. Sugar and sweets should be excluded. Fiber should be added to the diet. Adhering to a diet is best.
If a person continues to take insulin or other medications regularly, then food should be taken regularly. Because if you skip a meal, the reaction can be fatal. It is possible to control diabetes by living a proper and regular life. Diabetes is on the rise. Therefore, it is necessary to spread awareness among all. Because only awareness can keep us away from this horror.* Homoeopathic remedies: The patient is treated not the disease.
For this, it is possible to give homeopathic treatment to the experienced homeopaths by selecting the complete symptoms of the patient and giving the last treatment. Initially all the medicines that are selected by the experienced physicians are Abroma August, Cephalanda indica, Cesium, Acid Fos, Arsenic Bromide, Acid Lactic, Uranium Knight, Knox Introduction, Acid Acetic, Calcarea Fos and many more. If you use the medicine on your own, the disease can reach a more complex form. So to keep the body healthy, diabetics must be aware of the daily diet.
