GMoney Anchor - Sir, first of all, I want to know from you what are the causes of diabetes?

Dr. Vilas Gaikwad – There are many reasons for diabetes. It is a changed lifestyle, and because of that lifestyle, many people get diabetes at a young age. Not doing any physical activity, sitting all day long, and moving less invite diabetes.

GMoney Anchor - If I ask you about the symptoms, what are the symptoms of diabetes?

Dr. Vilas Gaikwad –50% of people with diabetes do not show any symptoms. When you get tested for any other treatment, it is found that the sugar has increased.

However, the main symptoms are frequent urination, feeling very hungry, and feeling weak. Some people suffer from skin infections, and if these infections occur repeatedly, these are the first symptoms of diabetes.

GMoney Anchor - Which fruits should be eaten by people with diabetes?

Dr. Vilas Gaikwad – There are many fruits you can eat in diabetes, such as berries, cherries, plums, grapefruit, peaches, apples, pears, and kiwis. You can eat all these fruits. You have to look at the glycemic index, that is, avoid any fruit or vegetable that increases your blood sugar quickly after eating it.

GMoney Anchor - Which fruits should not be eaten by people with diabetes?

Dr. Vilas Gaikwad – Fruits that increase sugar quickly after eating are prohibited. Like pineapple, watermelon, litchi, banana.

GMoney Anchor - Doctor, which vegetables should be eaten in diabetes?

Dr. Vilas Gaikwad – You can eat radishes, carrots, broccoli, okra, tomato, cauliflower, beans, cabbage. Apart from this, you can also eat beetroot, lettuce, and pumpkin. All these vegetables contain very little sugar, and their glycemic index is very low.

After eating that, basically, you get vitamins, and many minerals that are essential for the body, and these do not increase your sugar.

GMoney Anchor - Doctor, what are those vegetables that people with diabetes should not eat?

Dr. Vilas Gaikwad – There are very few vegetables that increase sugar levels when eaten. All the vegetables I told you about can be eaten by people with diabetes.
