In case of diabetes you have to eat nutrient dense food and exercise well. You need a diet which comprises of whole grains like jowar, bajra, wheat, brown rice, pulses like moong, musoor, bengal gram, lots of vegetables, fruits, eggs, fish, chicken, paneer, healthy oil, nuts and seeds. You need to eat them in right proportion. Avoid eating sugar and sweets, refined foods like maida, noodles pasta, white rice and products, bread. Drink a lot of water. Exercise atleast 5 times a week. Do not overeat. Eat 3 proper meals and 2 snack in between. Stop when your stomach is 80% full. Eat slowly.

As per Hba1c results, if it is 12% then are there any chances in treatment by life style modification.

As per Hba1c results, if it is 12% then are there any chances in treatment by life style modification.
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.

First you get tested for diabetes type 1 or type 2 which is maturity onset. Type 1 needs only insulin + diet therapy. Type 2 is controlled with medicines + diet and type 2 rarely requires insulin & type 1 is never controlled with medicines, insulin is the only therapy.

Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly.

When should I get checked for my thyroid for normal results if I am taken an ipill. After how many days does the hormone level comes back to normal. thanks.

Mr Zishan, If treatment for hypothyroidism has been started then after 6 weeks one should check TSH levels to see if levels have come to normal or if there is any need to increase the dose of thyroxine being taken. This treatment has to continue for life time. There is no way to stop it .

My Dad is Diabetic, Cause of that his creatinine is always above 5, need to lower the same and some advice.
Hello, if diabetes is is not in proper control and patient has persistent hyperglycemia, then kidney function is severely affected. That is probably the reason for his high creatinine level. So primary need is to have a stricter control on blood glucose level. Secodly his protein intake also has to be around 0.6 g per kg as creatinine is high. There is need to give a relook at his anti-diabetic treatment, diet and extent of daily exercise. Thanks.

More soluble than insoluble. 2.Dont give food gap more than 2-3hrs between meals. 3.Drink min 2ltrs of water during day time. Reduce water consumption after 6pm onwards. 4.

The diabetic parameters are within permissible limits ,tested six monthly. Doctor says since the above medicines appear to be controlling the disease, continue for life. Is this safe and right or is any periodic regulation required.

Mr. Lybrate-user, the medicines being taken are quite safe, hence can be continued for long time. Whether for life time is difficult to answer. Because as one get old, blood glucose control varies. Similarly kidney function may get affected due to diabetes itself. Periodic assessment is always required. Thanks.

lybrate-user, eight reduction and tiredness can occur in diabetes if blood glucose is not under control. You have not mentioned her current fasting, PP glucose levels and HbA1c%, so there is no way to know how good the control is. Weight loss also does occur in hyperthyroidism along with other symptoms like tiredness, irritability, difficulty in sleeping, increased heart rate & palpitations, loss of appetite or increase in appetite, light menstrual periods, mental disturbance, muscle weakness, nervousness, shortness of breath etc. So pleas come back with present blood glucose levels & HbA1c%, that will help in giving suggestions. Thanks.

Please tell me How to maintain sugar level from the younger age?
Mr. Lybrate-user, there is nothing wrong in liking sweets and even eating them. Diabetes does not coe because of eating sweets, but due to deficiency of insulin or resistance to its action or both, particularly in t2 diabetes. T1 diabetes occurs in those whose pancreas (beta cells) do not produce any insulin. One needs to be more careful if parent have t2 dm, as chances of getting diabetes increase very much. Few things need to be done to prevent getting t2 dm like: regular exercise daily for more than 1 hour, maintaining normal weight, consuming healthy diet, more green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Avoiding deep fried foods, junk foods, aerated sweetened drinks, fructose corn syrup containing products, highly processed foods, high fat milk products. Also refraining from alcohol and smoking. Basically maintaing a healthy lifestyle is necessary.
