Ayurvedic Singapore Offers Tips To Manage Pre-Diabetics
Diabetes is a medical condition where the pancreas does not produce the requisite insulin. The expert at Ayurvedic Singapore says, “The complications arising from diabetes include heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, nerve damage, foot problems, eye disease, gum disease, sexual issues, bladder problems, cancer, depression, dementia, and sleep apnoea.” Type-II diabetes is the most common form, and in normal cases, this type of diabetes affects those who are middle-aged. This condition happens when the body stops producing insulin effectively, thus causing blood glucose levels to rise too high.
The expert at Ayurvedic Singapore adds, “The symptoms include tingling or loss of feeling in the extremities, unexplained weight loss, blurry vision, increased urination, fatigue, inability to control the bladder, urinary tract infections, bladder infections, wounds healing slowly, hunger pangs, excessive thirst, pain or burning during urination, loss of libido, fertility issues, irritability, patches of darker skin on areas of the body that have creases, nausea and skin infections.”
According to the expert at Ayurvedic Singapore, pre-diabetes is less form of the evil, yet a menace indeed. Many youths across the globe, thanks to their sedentary lifestyles and irregular diet, are on the verge of diabetes.
The expert at Ayurveda Singapore says, “As far as Ayurveda is concerned, pre-diabetes is caused by an imbalance of Agni or digestive fire. Agni imbalances occur due to eating the wrong foods and living unbalanced lives. If this condition goes unchecked, most patients develop Type-II diabetes within five years.”
According to the expert at Ayurveda Singapore, pre-diabetes is a condition where the blood sugar level is slightly higher than normal but not high enough to be classified as Type II diabetes. All pre-diabetic patients must make certain lifestyle tweaks, make some dietary regulations and develop a fitness routine. Common risk factors of a pre-diabetic patient include being overweight, having metabolic syndrome, those above 45 years of age or older, having a parent or sibling with Type-II diabetes, being physically inactive, having gestational diabetes in the past and having polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
Foods To Be Avoided
Those with pre-diabetes should avoid milk, sweets, ice creams, fruit sugar, cakes, pastries, sweet biscuits, chocolates, soft drinks, condensed milk, cream, jaggery, yogurt, and more, says the expert at Ayurveda Singapore.
According to the expert at Ayurvedic Singapore, herbal dietary supplements such as aloe vera, amla, cinnamon, green tea, fenugreek, neem, and turmeric are excellent for pre-diabetes patients. Also, you can increase the intake of vegetables and fruits with a low glycemic index and low glycemic load. You can try low-fat dairy products and beans. The expert at Ayurvedic Singapore says, “You can choose poultry and lean meat instead of fatty red meat or processed meat.”
According to the expert at Ayurvedic Singapore, turmeric and amla help manage pre-diabetes well. Turmeric helps prevent insulin resistance among cells and acts as a channel opener for glucose, while amla helps prevent cataracts. The expert at Ayurvedic Singapore recommends, “Take 1/4 cup fresh amla juice with half a teaspoon of turmeric powder every day or a teaspoon of amla powder with half a teaspoon of turmeric powder laced in warm water.” Also, fenugreek seeds help control blood sugar and reduce insulin resistance in mild Type-II diabetic patients. “Take 2-3 grams of soaked fenugreek seeds with your meals a couple of times a day, recommends the expert at Ayurvedic Singapore.
