Hello doctor,

I am a 37 year old female. I am on diabetic medication since two years. I have attached my reports. Two months ago, my blood sugars were 149 FBS and 154 PPBS. The doctor had prescribed Istamet 50/500 (1-0-1), Gliclapack 30 mg (1-0-0), and Benipack 4 mg (1-0-1). Last week, the sugars were 97 FBS and 100 PPBS, and urine microalbumin was 34 mg/L. The doctor changed the medication to Istamet 50/500 (1-0-1), Gliclapack 30 mg (1-0-0), Benipack 4 mg (0-0-1) and Olkem 20 mg (1-0-0). My BP was 140/90 mm/Hg. He has asked me to do a full diabetic health check up after three months and revisit him. So, please advise the appropriate diet plan.

Thank you doctor,

Could you please advise about non-vegetarian food? Is it allowed to have lean chicken or fish twice or thrice a week? Also, is it alright to have egg whites? Also, which fruits can I have? I also have millets or brown rice. Is this fine?

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • You can take egg whites or lean chicken or fish twice a week. But, ensure you take boiled, steamed, grilled or roasted chicken or fish instead of fried.
  • You can take all the fruits except mango, chiku, muskmelon, and sitafal (sugar apple).
  • You can take millets but avoid rice. Limit brown rice to 20 g per day.

Thank you doctor,

Since the micro albumin value is 34, I was wondering if the protein intake should be reduced.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • You can take tofu as it is a lean protein.
  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day. Dehydration can increase your microalbumin levels. Hydrate with 10 to 15 glasses of water daily.
