  • What is diabetes? Types of Diabetes & Symptoms- By Best Dietician in Mumbai Geetanjali Ahuja (Mengi)

    In Health Tips On 17 April 2016

    What is diabetes? Types of Diabetes & Symptoms-By Best Dietician in Mumbai Geetanjali Ahuja (Mengi) According to International Diabetes federation by 2025 India is going to be the capital of diabetes world population. Currently upto 11% of the India's population and 3% of the rural population above the age of 15 have diabetes. Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life. Types of Diabetes- Type 1 Diabetes is usually diagnosed in children and young adults, and is usually diagnosed in childhood. Many patients are diagnosed when they are older than age 20. In this disease, the body makes little or no insulin. It was previously known as juvenile diabetes. Type 2 Diabetes - The most common form of diabetes is type 2 diabetes. In this type of diabetes either the body does not produce enough insulin or the cells ignore the insulin. About 90 to 95 percent of people with diabetes have type 2. Gestational diabetes is high blood glucose that develops at any time during pregnancy in a woman who does not have diabetes. Gestational diabetes affects about 4% of all pregnant women. Symptoms 1. Always tired: Due to inefficiency of the cell to metabolize glucose, reserve fat of body is metabolized to gain energy. When fat is broken down in the body, it uses more energy as compared to glucose; hence body goes in negative calorie effect, which results in fatigue. 2. Frequent Urination: Increase in urine production is due to excess glucose present in body. Body gets rid of the extra sugar in the blood by excreting it through urine. 3. Weight loss: Factors like loss of water, metabolism of body fat and protein may lead to weight loss. Few cases may show weight gain due to increased appetite. 4. Always thirsty: Concentration of glucose increases in the blood, brain receives signal for diluting it and we feel thirsty. 5. Poor wound healing: High blood sugar resists production of WBC, (white blood cell) which are responsible for body immune system. When these cells do not function accordingly, wound healing is not at good pace. 6. Always Hungry:  In order to cope up with high sugar levels in blood, body produces insulin which leads to increased hunger. 7. Infections : Because of the fluctuation in blood sugar the body gives few signals by frequent infections 8. Blurry vision: Due to high glucose levels body fluid is pulled out of tissues including lenses of the eye, which affects its ability to focus, resulting blurry vision.  If you notice any possible diabetes symptoms, contact your doctor. The earlier the condition is diagnosed, the sooner treatment can begin.

  • 4 Powerful Reasons to Eat Slower- Best Dietician in Mumbai Geetanjali Ahuja (Mengi)

    In Health Tips On 05 May 2016

    4 Powerful Reasons to Eat Slower- By Best Dietician in Mumbai Geetanjali Ahuja (Mengi) 1. Lose weight- A number of studies by many researchers have confirmed that just by eating slower, you will consume fewer calories in fact, enough to lose 20 pounds a year without doing anything different or eating anything different. The reason is that it takes about 20 minutes for our brains to register that we are full. If we eat fast, we can continue eating past the point where we are full. 2. Enjoy your food- It's hard to enjoy your food if it goes by too quickly. Make your meals a gastronomic pleasure, not a thing you do rushed, between stressful events. 3. Better digestion- If you eat slower, you will chew your food better, which leads to better digestion. This can help lead to fewer digestive problems. 4. Less stress-  Eating slowly, and paying attention to our eating, can be a great form of relaxing. When you eat, you should eat. This kind of mindfulness, I believe, will lead to a less stressful life, and long-term happiness. Eating quickly leads to poor digestion, increased weight gain, and lower satisfaction. The message is clear: Slow down your eating and enjoy improved health and well-being. Article written by Best Dietician in Bandra, Mumbai Geetanjali Ahuja Mengi

  • Nutrient of the day: Calcium- Article Written by famous Dietician Geetanjali Ahuja (Mengi)

    In Health Tips On 09 May 2016

    Nutrient of the day: Calcium 1. Calcium is one of the most important and abundant minerals in the human body. It plays an important role in the development and maintenance of the bones. Calcium is also needed in tooth formation and is important in some other body functions too. Calcium performs a number of basic functions in your body. 2. Your body uses 99 percent of its calcium to keep your bones and teeth strong, thereby supporting skeletal structure and function. The rest of the calcium in your body plays key roles in cell signalling, blood clotting, muscle contraction and nerve function. 3. Dairy products are the major source of calcium. Green leafy vegetables, broccoli, legumes, nuts, and whole grains provide calcium but in smaller amounts than dairy products. 4. If we do not have enough calcium in our diets to keep our bodies functioning, calcium is removed from where it is stored in our bones. Over time, this causes our bones to grow weaker and may lead to osteoporosis as a disorder in which bones become very fragile.
