What are the means to lower Blood Urea Level in Type II diabetics.My MOL has type II diabeties since last over 10 years and takes insulin 12 in the morning and 6 in the evening apart from two tablets of oral medicine.Her Blood urea level recently was 60 and uric acid 8.4.
She has been put additionally on one tablet in the morning and 1/2 tablet in the evening of Zyloric and told to avoid tea /coffee and take low protein diet.
Could any one help me with a diet chart for her as also,
please advise what to do to control these.
These pranayam exercises will help control the diabetes and the side effects.Build up the timing gradually.If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume later(after about a minute).The benefits will be noticed in weeks as the sugar level is checked daily.Over the long term the diabetes will be in full control, and will show up in the blood test.
Do the pranayam regularly at the suggested duration.Come back to report, whatever benefits you notice.Check the blood urea after 4 months.
Kapalbhati -(Do it before eating) Push air forcefully out through the nose about once per second. Stomach will itself go in(contract in). The breathing in(through the nose) will happen automatically. Establish a rhythm and do for 15 to 30 minutes twice a day.
Children under 15 years – do 10 to 15 minutes twice a day.
Not for pregnant women. Seriously ill people do it gently.
Anulom Vilom –
Close your right nostril with thumb and deep breath-in through left nostril
then – close left nostril with two fingers and breath-out through right nostril
then -keeping the left nostril closed deep breath-in through right nostril
then - close your right nostril with thumb and breath-out through left nostril.
This is one cycle of anulom vilom.
Repeat this cycle for 15 to 30 minutes twice a day.
Children under 15 years - do 10 to 15 minutes twice a day.
You can do this before breakfast/lunch/dinner or before bedtime or in bed.Remember to take deep long breaths into the lungs.You can do this while sitting on floor or chair or lying in bed.
Also everyday, press the centre point of the palm of both your hands 40 times with the thumb and press the tips of all fingers 40 times each.
To stimulate the pancreas to produce insulin: mandukasan - kneel down(with feet pointing inwards,and sit on the ankles/heels, Vajrasan position), breathe in and breathe out completely and hold your breath, pull the stomach in, press both your hands on stomach, bend forward as much as possible keeping the head straight, hold for 5 to 15 seconds and come back up while breathing in. Repeat this 3 times daily to stimulate the kidney and pancreas.Mandukasan2 - Repeat the whole process,but this time with with fists of both hands pressing against the stomach.Mandukasan can be done sitting on a chair, if you cannot bend the legs.
Continue the breathing exercises once a day, after the diabetes is in full control.
We don't have access to your MOLs medical record to tell us the reason for the BUN and uric acid levels. Lab ranges differ, especially ones in India vs the USA so the numbers provided does not help either. Speak with her Gastroenterologist and Urologist.
This is the best I can do as your questions are beyond my diabetes scope. Maybe someone will come along and post suggestions they know. You can Google search for suggestions to help normalized these conditions along with diabetes nutritional guides.
