Hi, thanks for the query. For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Dear, Diabetes is often called the silent killer. Diabetes, is a metabolic disease in which sugar does not get metabolized properly in the body. This means that the blood sugar levels continue to be high, threatening the normal functioning of the body. Let me know the Blood report ie Sugar,fasting, PP, HbA1c.

Mr Naitik, You probably mean how to control blood sugar is it? If that is the case, then following steps should be taken : 1) Take prescribed medicine regularly, 2) Avoid sweets, direct sugar, jaggery, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. 4) Exercise regularly for more than 1 h a day, 5) Maintain normal weight 6)Avoid alcohol and smoking

Mr. Lybrate-user, if your sugar level is 69 mg/100 ml, then it is actually very low, that does not cause excess urination. But please check after food glucose level, if that is high (>200 mg/100 ml), then there is diabetes. Otherwise there may be some other reason for increased frequency of urination. Get routine urine test done for checking if there is urinary tract infection. Also get your bp checked, plus you are over weight, that also must be contributing for weakness. Please come back with all the above details, then I can be of help. Thanks for the question.

Dear lybrateuser, -there is always a chance to get the disease if the parent has it but it can be avoided if you lead a healthy life including proper diet & exercise -have a diet rich in fruits (avoid banana, chickoo, mango, as they are high in sugars) & vegetables, more of green leafy ones -avoid fried, processed & junk food, use cooking oil sparingly about 1 teaspoonful per day, also restrict full fat dairy products, red meat -do regular exercise for 30-40 min like walking, jogging, cycling, swimming, play outdoor games, also include moderate weight lifting in your exercise regimen as muscles help burn sugar faster & keep blood sugar under control -to reduce stress do yoga & meditation for 5-10 min daily -keep a check on your weight, bp, blood sugar, cholesterol at least once in two years to prevent the disorder in future -get your vision checked as diabetes affects vision if sugar is high.

Hye, thanks for the query. Being, a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - the sugar levels will fluctuate depending on what you ate or did not eat, stress levels and activity levels. You have to try and manage a balanced carb intake. Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. You have to eat 3 main and 3 mid meals. Your diet must include whole grains, seasonal fruits, vegetables, small amounts of nuts and dairy and pulses or dals or lean meats like chicken or fish and egg. Starchy vegetables need to be planned into the diet. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Long gaps consequent heavy meals lead to not only hyperglycemia but gas as well. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Avoid exercise if sugar levels are above 250 mg/dl. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline. I would advise you to take a personalised consultation.

As per your reports you are a poorly controlled diabetic and hypothyroid patient. You need to be on strict diabetic diet, reduce your weight by regular exercise to around 75 kg that is your ideal weight accoding to your height and visit your physician for addition of diabetes medication and change in dose of thyronorm.

Building Muscle with Diabetes Weight training can help increase your metabolism Weight training can help increase your metabolism Having diabetes won't stop you from building muscle. However, it's wise to follow a few precautions when it comes to gaining muscle. There are many different types of exercise and one of the most popular is strength or power training, which is very effective for building strong bones and muscles. Strong muscles collect oxygen and nutrients from the blood much more efficiently than weak ones, meaning that any physical activity you do will require less cardiac work and put less strain on your heart. As well as being good for the heart, they also improve weight control and help the body remain sensitive to the hormone insulin, which is vital for keeping blood sugar levels in check and preventing or controlling Here are some tips on how you can build strong, lean muscle, without affecting your diabetes: Load up on protein Protein intake is vital for building muscle. However, your body constantly drains its protein reserves for other uses such as producing hormones, resulting in less protein available for muscle building. To counteract this, you need to build and store new proteins faster than your body breaks down old proteins. You should look to consume about 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight, which is roughly the maximum amount your body can use in a day. Good sources of protein include: Chicken Tuna Eggs, milk and cottage cheese Protein shakes (see below for more about shakes) Remember, the more protein your body stores (protein synthesis), the larger your muscles grow. Have a protein shake before your workout Protein shakes are very effective for improving strength. While many trainers have a post-workout shake, research has shown that drinking a shake containing at least 6 grams of amino acids - the muscle-building blocks of protein - and 35 grams of carbohydrates 30-60 minutes before exercising increases your protein synthesis more than drinking the same shake after training. "Since exercise increases bloodflow to your working tissues, drinking a carbohydrate-protein mixture before your workout may lead to greater uptake of the amino acids in your muscles, says Kevin Tipton, PhD, an exercise and nutrition researcher at the University of Texas. Good quality whey-protein powders usually contain at least 30 grams of protein per serving, as well as a healthy supply of vitamins and minerals. Other liquid supplements such as weight-gain powders can also provide a lot of high quality protein and nutrients in each serving, but they also tend to be extremely high in calories, carbohydrates and sugar. While this is sufficient for most weight lifters, it is not ideal for those with conditions such as type 2 diabetes, for whom weight loss may be a key goal. Work your biggest muscles If you're new to weight lifting or strength training, just about any workout will be intense enough to increase protein synthesis and build muscle. On the Forum Protein Shake/Supplement for Muscle Building Building toned muscles with type 1? Building muscle Muscle and strength building However, if you're experienced with weights, you'll see the biggest and fastest results by focusing on the large muscle groups, like the back, legs and chest. The best exercises for these body parts are squats, dead-lifts, bench press, leg press, pull-ups, bent-over rows, shoulder press and dips. Add two or three sets of 8 or 12 repetitions to your workout, with about 60 seconds' rest between sets. Eat a high-quality meal after training Post-workout meals or snacks should be high in carbohydrates and protein. Carbohydrates are needed to fuel exercise. As well as being a vital energy source they also play a role in the release of insulin, which regulates levels of blood sugar and is also the body’s most potent anabolic hormone. However, people with diabetes are generally advised to limit their carb intake to keep their blood sugar levels under control as their bodies struggle to produce insulin or don’t use the insulin produced effectively. The problem with this though is that a lack of stored carbs can result in the body using protein for energy production, thus leaving less protein for building muscle. The key is to cut out bad carbs such as. Refined, processed carbohydrates found in white bread, potatoes, pasta and rice from your diet and replace them with good, unprocessed carbs from fruit and vegetables, beans, nuts, seeds and whole-grain versions of bread, pasta and rice. Foods with good carbs generally have a lower glycemic index (GI), which means they tend to break down slowly to form glucose. Low GI foods also have a high nutritional value and provide prolonged release of energy. Drink plenty of water Adequate water consumption is one of the most overlooked factors in exercise. Water comprises up to 70% of the human body and if you're dehydrated, your muscle size suffers as well. The other way of looking at it is that one pound of muscle can hold up to three pounds of water. Rest Rest is another hugely overlooked factor in building strong, lean muscle. The simple fact is that after an intense workout, the body needs the proper nutrients and recovery time to grow bigger and stronger. In fact, your muscles grow when you're resting, not when you're working out. If you’re a beginner, do a full-body workout followed by a day of rest. Alternatively look at setting aside at least 3 days of rest each week. Consume good fats A common misconception among the general public is that all types of fat are bad for you. While saturated fats and trans fats (i.e. Bad fats) increase cholesterol and your risk of certain diseases, monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats can have the opposite effect and benefit your overall physical and mental health. They are also important for muscle growth. Good sources of healthy fats such as omega-3 fatty acids include: Fish - salmon, tuna, mackerel, herring, trout and sardines Avocados Olives and olive oil Nuts - almonds, hazelnuts, pecans, walnuts, cashews and macadamia nuts Peanut butter Tofu Sunflower, sesame, and pumpkin seeds, and flaxseed.

Mr wasim khan, looking at your weight and height, your bmi is 22.87 kg/m2 which is just normal. It is really excellent to have this kind of weight and height. I do not see any reason why one should think of increasing the weight. If your diabetes is under check, then this weight is fine. Please mention your fasting, pp levels and hba1c%, so that I may be able to guide.

Dr. lybrate-user for the query. The blood glucose levels mentioned are fairly high, suggesting diabetes is uncontrolled. It is clear that present medication is not really helping, there is a need for up gradation of treatment. Ideally in a well controlled diabetesfasting should be < 100 mg, PP 160 to 180 mg in a slightly older person. HbA1c% < 7. To help achieve better control we need to look at his dietary pattern, extent of daily physical activity (exercise) and the medication. I would be glad to help, provided you come in a private conversation (paid consultation) as in this communication we are not supposed to give any prescriptions. I can only give general guide lines. Please come back with following information: weight, height, dietary pattern extent of daily exercise and HbA1c%. Thanks.

Can you give a diet chart for a thyroid patient, which he or she must have to take daily, to maintain the tsh.

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
Homeopathy treats the person as a whole. This means that homeopathic treatment focuses on the patient as a person, as well as his pathological condition. The Homeopathic thyroid treatment medicines are selected after a full individualizing examination and case-analysis, which includes the medical history of the patient, physical and mental constitution etc. A miasmatic tendency (predisposition/susceptibility) is also often taken into account for the treatment of chronic conditions. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects
