Symptoms of diabetes in childrenSymptoms are the same as diabetes in adults or elders, like excessive thirst, fatigue, hunger, or sweating.
Sometimes nausea or vomiting, bedwetting or excessive urination, tachycardia, frequent infections, excessive weight gain or loss.
Diet management and suitable regimens
The Diet of children is the most difficult part to manage. Replace artificial sugar with natural sugars like dates, figs, fruits, and vegetables.
Replace sugar with jaggery or pure honey. (All natural sugar also increases blood sugar levels, but it is more nutritious than artificial, so its use of it is also limited.)
All fried items should be made with cow ghee instead of any oil.
Avoid taking curd, non-veg fats, and new grains of routine use like wheat, and rice. (use minimum 1-2 year edged rice or wheat).
Use multigrain flour instead of single flour of wheat or rice or other. (ragi, soybean, corn, jawar, millets- multigrain).
Use medicated water instead of the normal one. (Add jeera and nutmeg powder in it, sometimes elaichi.).
For snacks use roasted chickpea, popcorn, or puffed rice.
Avoid taking bath suddenly after taking a meal.
Avoid night-awakening, midday sleep/naps, or sleep suddenly after taking a meal.
Exercise and pranayama also help to reduce blood sugar levels.
