In diabetes diet plays a very important role, you need to be particular about food choices & timings to control diabetes. I would suggest you to follow proper do's and don't in diabetes so to overcome the problem and include more of pulses & fiber in your diet as they have low gycemic index and really helps to control blood glucose levels.

Mr. S lybrate-user, TSH 6.52 mU/L, is high, falls in the category of sub-clinical hypothyroidism. Usually no treatment is advocated. However, if there are any troublesome symptoms are present and T4 level is lower, then treatment is advised. Consequences of high TSH or hypothyroidism are: weight gain, slow heart, intolerance to cold, muscle and joint pains, anxiety, depression, tiredness, early fatigue, lack of energy, dry skin, dry hair and hair fall etc. If hypothyroidism develops, then hormonal supplement is the only treatment. Plus avoiding soy beans & soy containing products is important. Some other foods and vegetables may have to be avoided like cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts and coffee. Also avoid using maida and foods made from it. Thanks.

Hello, having diabetes mellitus need not affect using of hair dye. Some persons may have allergy to a hair dye, if that happens then one has to stop. Allergy can cause a lot of different symptoms. So if you are allergic to it do not use.

Ayurveda may suggest Karela juice and methi powder BUT Medical science recommends medication with Metformin and exercise and re check and increase or add other medicines if not controlled. .Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch personally.

Mr. Lybrate-user, the levels mentioned are exceptionally high, need urgent reduction. It shows that the present treatment is not at all beneficial. Ina controlled diabetes fasting is closer to 100 mg and pp about 150 to 160 mg / 100 ml and hba1c% <7. The above levels can rapidly lead to serious long term complications related to diabetes. It is better if he is shifted to insulin injections. Otherwise it is difficult to control the sugar levels. He should also undergo an eye examination to see if there is diabetic retinopathy. (eyes to examined after dilating the pupil). If you are willing to shift to newer treatment,

Hi, thanks for writing in. Your fasting sugar is not reliable due to variation. Please get hba1c test done to know accurate status of blood sugar control. This is a blood test to be done every 3 months. Your medicine is to be taken after knowing the test report.

Diabetes affects all organs in the body? eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, infact, from from toe to hair. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record.

Hello.My mother is suffering from Thyroid with TSH= 12.0. What kind of problem is this? Is it possible to completely cure this problem? Or lifetime medications? I got no reply about the period of medications. Kindly brief me about the pattern of problem and medications. Thank you.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hello, Thanks for the query. With TSH 12.0 mU/L, she has hypothyroidism. This needs to be treated with Levothyroxine. Dosage has to be decided on the basis of TSH, T4 value and her body weight. Treatment has to be for lifetime. If not treated it can lead to multiple problems like weight gain, cold intolerance, slow heart rate, tiredness, early fatigue, muscle and joint pains, anxiety, depression, dry skin, dry hair and hair fall and menstrual problems. Early initiation of treatment is necessary. On treatment TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. If you have any doubts please come back. Thanks.

My father has a very big issue in sugar. He follows every thing but he can't get over it.

CDIABT, MBBS

My father has a very big issue in sugar. He follows every thing but he can't get over it.
For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise. Medication will depend upon blood sugar level.

My uncle is 50 years old. He is suffering from knee pain often. And he is having diabetes I think so. What to do?
Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain.

My dad is 48 years old and he is recently discovered with a 15 mm gallbladder stone. He has also high blood sugar level.

a 15 mm stone is a fairly big one, if the surgeon has advised about surgical removal, he must have done considering all the aspects. Only medication is not going to be helpful in resolving the stone. If there is no major symptoms and difficulties the surgery can be delayed. Ursodiol is the drug used to dissolve the stones but stones do come back. Hence surgical removal of gall bladder is a better option even in a diabetic patient. Removal of gall bladder is done in most well equipped hospitals.

My mother having hypothyroidism and weight gain. She wants to reduce weight. Please suggest.
Mr. Lybrate-user, if hypothyroidism is in control with tsh values aroun 3 to 4 mu/l, then efforts to reduce weight do succeed. So please see that her tsh levels are maintained in that range. Then let her take a diet that gives exact calories based on her ideal body weight (54 kgs), plus she should exercise daily for at least 1 hour, brisk walking is a good option. Thanks.
