Diabetes India

Newbie anxiety!

I'm 39 now and diagnosed with pre-diabetes t2. Under excercise and diet plans. It is now 114/130 need to bring the fasting down. From a diabetic family (father) had a shock hearing my results when i was diagnosed. Have fatty liver Grade 2 and suspects that it's the root cause. Just a bit worried and curious though I now have to admit and move on. :)

But i have been hearing this news very much hyped. Is there a hope for T2 reversal? It's LMPTP liver molecule drug which was highly successful in rats and is now under testing for humans. Any hope on it or is this just a hoax??

Just curious, but is there light at the end of tunnel? :)

You can certainly keep diabetes under control.Have you undergone HbA1c test?That result will give a better picture of your diabetes.Regarding liver,is it NON ALCOHOLIC FATTY LIVER DISEASE(NAFLD)?If so,you have to be concerned.I am pasting an extract from an article I found.Hope it will be of some use to you.

Is there medicine that I can take to cure Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease? Right now, there is no medicine people can take to cure NAFLD. The best thing you can do if you have NAFLD is to lose weight. The weight loss should be slow and steady, with a goal of losing one pound a week. Typically, it is recommended to lose 5-10% of your body weight to have improvement of the underlying NAFLD. Talk to your doctor about setting a weight loss goal that is right for you.

Is there any advice I can follow to change my diet so that I can avoid fatty liver disease? Science has shown that we can improve our chances for good health if we follow some basic nutrition tips. Healthy eating involves taking some time to plan most of our meals in advance. It is very important to understand that nutritional guidelines stated here are for general information purposes only and should never be considered a replacement for medical advice from your own doctor. People with certain metabolic diseases, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and others should speak with their doctors to develop eating plans that are right for them. In general, the goal should be to eat three meals and up to two snacks each day. We should also try to limit eating outside of the home to two meals or less per week, because restaurant food is often served in much larger portion sizes than necessary and is often lower in nutrition and higher in fat, sugar, and salt. Fat is an important part of our diet, but the types of fats we eat are also important. Healthy fats are called “unsaturated fats” and include Omega-3 fatty acids. Unsaturated fats are often found in plantbased products and some oils. Unhealthy fats are “saturated fats” and are often found in animal products (meats, for example). We should try to eat a diet in which no more than 30% of its calories are from fat. Most of those fat calories should be from unsaturated fat sources. Eating a diet that is lower in cholesterol is also important. Added sugar is also called fructose or high fructose corn syrup, and it is often found in highest amounts in processed foods. Natural sugar is found in fruits. We should try to eat foods that contain natural sugar more than those that contain added sugar.

5 Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD)

Choose More:¸ Foods that contain unprocessed whole grains (whole grain bread)¸ Baked or grilled foods—these are healthier than fried foods¸ Fish—contains healthy Omega-3 fatty acids¸ Vegetables and fruits—eat at least five servings each day¸ Low-fat milk, yogurt and dairy products¸ Healthy oils—olive oil, canola oil, soybean oil, vegetable oil¸ Nuts, seeds, avocados and olives¸ Water Choose Less:˚ Processed grains (white bread, white rice, grits, white potatoes)˚ Fried food (fried meats, French fries, fried rice, potato chips, fast foods)˚ Processed meats (cold cuts, hot dogs)˚ Soda, energy drinks, sports drinks, candy, cake, cookies, pies—these contain lots of added sugar˚ Fruit juice—it’s healthier than soda, but fruit juice contains more sugar and less fiber and nutrients than whole fruit. Enjoy your fruit juice—just in smaller amounts!˚ Butter and lard—these contain large amounts of “saturated” (unhealthy) fats˚ Vitamin and mineral supplements—usually not needed ˚

Stage 2: non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) Only a few people with simple fatty liver go on to develop stage 2 of the condition, called non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). ... Inflammation is the body's healing response to damage or injury and, in this case, is a sign that liver cells have become damaged.

Alcohol is a major cause of fatty liver disease as well as other liver diseases. Added sugar. Stay away from sugary foods such as candy, cookies, sodas, and fruit juices. High blood sugar increases the amount of fat buildup in the liver.

Dini297 Welcome and I was in the same shape at 40 and far worse numbers and insulin deficient and very high inflammation and a wound that refused to heal. Age is till on your side believe it or not and some major dietary and lifestyle interventions can do most of the work. Depending on specifics medicines can be had in consultation with doctors and experts. Your liver requires immediate attention. Good luck and Godspeed !

Guys, thanks for your support, much appreciate. Mine seems alchahol induced .As a moderate drinker (weekends)for more than 10 years, this seems inviteable. I was confident that excercise and hyper activity will help me from diabetese even from a heriditory connection.But was poor on diet, much to say ignorant on diet.Can say a bit lucky though it didnt catch me too young. Planning to go on fully committed to diet not intrested in medicines.But dont know what doctor says.Now fully moniroring sugar for one week then will decide the course of treatment. Its now standing at 112/130.

Wondering why this epidemic has never been put to sleep.Common guys i have seen worst people in diet and lifestyle having perfect sugar levels and pancreas. Why me is still haunting :) Hope there will be a permannent cure in near future.
