Diabetes.....Weight management

Weight management is a big factor in management of diabetes.Even a few kg reduced improve the assimilation of insulin.For the benefit of everbody I give below the standard weight as per the height.

height. male. female

4'10. 51.5. 48.5

4'11. 53.8. 50.3

5.0. 54.4. 52.5

5.1. 53.3. 54.1

5.2. 60.3. 56.7

5.3. 61.7. 58.1

5.4. 63.5. 59.9

5.5. 65.3. 61.2

5.6. 66.7. 63,5

5.7. 68.5. 65.3

5.8. 70.8. 66.7

5.9. 72.6. 68.5

5.10. 74.4. 70.3

5.11. 76.2. 71.7

6.00. 78.5. 73.9

Height is given in feet/ inch and weight in Kgs.If your weight is exceeding as per the table,then the time has come to do something.When I was diagnosed as diabetic,my weight was 85 kgsMy height is 5'8 .First thing I did was to bring it down to 70 kgs.Today after 17 years I still keep it to it.

  • well your chart looks theoretically true.....but practically with growing age it is difficult to maintain the ideal weight....but no excuse one should strive to attain it......thanks for sharing the knowledge...

  • The Chart ahas been arrived at based on Body Mass Index. Good job.

  • It took me around 5 months to get my weight down from 82 to 72 for a height of 5 ' 8.5". No matter what i do, it just plateaus at this level. and doesn't drop below that. So i consider this is good enough for me and try to be around this weight.

  • I'm exactly tallying/matching you, height-wise and my weight is 71 Kgs. , its been between 69.5 and 72 for past 20 yrs plus. Thanks to all, Kudos Anup! keep inspiring,

  • Great. Keep reducing total CARBS intake to hit 100gms/day max. That's one plain thumb rule to tame diabetes. If this starts being told to generation that's coming then diabetes epidemic will be all over or be to a stage where it was before 1990's in India. But who wants it over..? There's no money in that for the Pharma and Food lobby. They would want it spread faster in BRIC nations as that's where major money is now for all Business Vampires.

  • As long as you are nourished fine, don't worry about weight much. 65 is ok enough.

  • Hi my height is 5.7. But my weight is 97 KG, Please suggest how to reduce the food & methods used. I am 59. Thanks in advance.

  • CUT CARBS to 100gms/day.

    Weight will come down automatically.

    CARBS means CARBOHYDRATES.

  • you do not mentined what you did to get this result???

  • THIS IS TRUE. MY WEIGHT WAS 107 KG. AGE 64.HEIGHT IS 5.6. I WAS SUFFERING FROM HEAVY DIABETICE.5 TABLETS AND 35 UNIT INSULIN TWICE A DAY.....STILL IT WAS 160 IN FASTING AND 190 PLBS. IN SEPT 2013 I WENT THROUGH BARIATRIC SURGERY AT INDORE. NOW MY WIGHT IS 74 KG. NO MEDICINE IS REQUIRED AT ALL. SUGAR IS 110FASTING AND 140 PLBS NO HT AT ALL. SO WEIGHT REDUCTION IS HELPFUL IN DIABETICS.....
