Hello doctor my friend is detected with t3n2mo breast cancer and had UTI due to diabetes 5 months back.She is 62yrs what  is her chance of survival.?

It depends: First of all sorry to hear your loved one is diagnosed with cancer. There are good treatment options for locally advanced breast cancer which seems to be the case here.

I'm 49 year old female.my hubby is diabetic can I eat the same food as him I'm not diabetic.

Absolutely!: A good diet for most people with diabetes is also a good diet for most people without diabetes. People with type 2 diabetes can eat almost anything, following two basic principles: portion control & balance. Portion control keeps total calories in a range to allow for weight loss/prevent weight gain. Balance means eating protein along with carbs to slow absorption of the sugar, and prevent spikes. ...Read more

It varies: A healthy well-balanced diet, 3 meals without snacks. Caloric restriction if you need to lose weight. There's no magic here. Find an eating plan you can follow the rest of your life, not a short-term diet. Check w/your registered dietitian. ...Read more

What is a good diet for a diabetic person? What foods to avoid?

Avoid sugar & carbs : Everyone agrees that it is best to avoid sugar and minimize simple carbs (as found in rice, wheat and other grains) and sweet fruits. It is good to emphasize vegetables, beans and nuts. Dr. Gabriel cousens has found that a raw food vegan diet often dramatically improves and at times even reverses diabetes! see http://bit.Ly/1dlmd23 and http://www.Naturalnews.Com/028341_diabetes_living_foods.Html. ...Read more

What is the best foods for diabetic?

Many!: There are a lot of great foods out there - perfect for diabetes. The key is high in fiber, low in saturated fat, and low in simple carbohydrate (sugar).

I have a "menu" on my web site that will help you understand portions: www.Portlandpreventivecardiology.Com you can also go to the am diabetes assoc web page. ...Read more

What would happen if you don't get enough food to eat when you are a diabetic?

What would happen if you don't get enough food to eat when you are a diabetic?

The sugar goes down: This happens to everyone, not just diabetics. We have a limited store of sugar/protein(which can be converted to sugar) which is being used constantly to keep body alive; thus must be replenished--via eating. Not eating=storage depletion. For diabetics, it is more concerning due to the use of medication which reduces the sugar. So, +meds and no food=danger of hypoglycemia. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
