Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for your query. Coconut oil contains mainly medium chain fatty acids (MCT), these are good for health. Help reduce cholesterol, provide good energy and nutrition. This is one of the main cooking medium employed in some parts of South India (Kerala). For a diabetic person also it is a good cooking medium. However, no single oil is ideal. So it is advised to use two or three different types of oils. Like sunflower oil, safflower, palm, ground nut and other varieties. Now a days there are some bleneded oils also are available. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The blood glucose values given are abnormally high. He needs urgent treatment that too with Insulin injection. Tablets (oral anti-diabetics) are not going to be beneficial. First he has to be started on Insulin for at least 3 months along with an oral drug, once a desired control is achieved, he can be shifted on to only oral drugs later. So if you are keen on getting treatment initiated online, can come in a private conversation with following details: HbA1c%, dietary pattern, extent of daily exercise and details of medications that he may be taking. Either get treatment from me or consult a local doctor preferably a diabetologist. Do not delay. As uncontrolled diabetes can cause very severe long term complications affecting a multiple organs in the body. Thanks.

lybrate-user, A strict diet can be beneficial only when blood glucose is fairly well in control with appropriate drugs. From the information it is clear that current treatment is not at all helpful to you. Ideally when in control fasting glucose should be closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. If these levels are not achieved and maintained, then one is inviting serious long term complications related to multiple organs in the body. There needs to be a total relook at the present treatment. Thanks.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

Mr. Lybrate-user, there are many people with high uric acid, but only a few develop joint related problems. Not that every person with high uric acid has gouty arthritis. So you need not worry. You can still avoid foods which have high purines like: certain fishes, sardines, trout, herring, shell fish, salmon, scallop, mushrooms, mussels. Plus organ meats, red meat in general, alcohol, high sugarated drinks, colas, fructose corn syrup containing products. Can consume milk products, green leafy vegetables, salads, whole grain products, legumes etc.

Ayurveda and Gestational Diabetes

BSc
Ayurveda, Ujjain
Ayurveda and Gestational Diabetes

Diabetes during pregnancy is known as gestational diabetes. It is interesting to note that the chances of getting gestational diabetes, is one of the most common complication of pregnancy. It has increased by almost 40%. Also, gestational diabetes not only affects the health of the mother, but also the health of the baby. What usually happens with gestational diabetes is that the blood sugar level, of both the mother and the baby go above the normal level.

Ayurveda can help treat this disease. Here are the most common Ayurveda remedies for gestational diabetes.

  1. Gurmaar: Gurmaar, called "The Sugar Killer" is also known as Gymnema sylvestre in medical jargon. Gurmaar also contains gymnemic acid molecules, which are crucial because they have an anti-diabetic effect. They work by combining with glucose molecules, which are in the blood stream. These stop the glucose from entering the bloodstream. 
  2. Karela: Karela is commonly known as bitter gourd and its biological name is Momordica charantia. It has anti-diabetic properties and also contains many other micronutrients, which are crucial in preventing the complications which arise from gestational diabetes.
  3. Vizaysaar: Vizaysaar comes from the bark of a tree whose biological name is Pterocarpus marsupium. It is very useful for diabetes. If you immerse the wood of Vizaysaar in water overnight and then drink it, your blood sugar levels are expected to fall.
  4. Saptrangi: Saptrangi is biologically known as Salacia oblonga. Just like Vizaysaar, it is a tree whose bark is immersed in water and then drunk by the patient suffering from diabetes. You will know that the water is ready for drinking when it turns brown, which usually happens overnight. It is also being studied in Western herbal schools in addition to Ayurveda nowadays.
  5. Tulsi: Tulsi is a holy plant in Hindu mythology and is known as Ocimum sanctum in biological terms. It is worshiped as a holy plant because it has tremendous medicinal properties including treating many types of cancers, cough, cold, sore throat as well as reducing blood sugar.
  6. Ashwagandha: The medical name for ashwagandha is Withania somnifera. It is another great remedy for diabetes.

Hypothyroidism and Pregnancy - What You Need to Know?

Hypothyroidism and Pregnancy - What You Need to Know?

The thyroid gland within the body plays an important role in regulating your metabolism among many other functions. This is a butterfly-shaped gland located in your neck and plays an important role within your body. However, a common condition that may afflict it is hypothyroidism or an underactive thyroid gland. It is even more of a problem if you are pregnant as it may affect your baby’s development in the womb. It has also been noticed that pregnancy in itself may cause hypothyroidism.

Symptoms of Hypothyroidism-

Pregnant women may also exhibit symptoms common to other patients who are suffering from hypothyroidism. These may include:

  1. Fatigue along with lethargy.

  2. Mild to significant weight gain.

  3. Constipation.

  4. Feeling cold with severe chills

The thyroid gland produces the T4 hormone responsible for regulating many mechanisms within the body such as metabolism. With hypothyroidism, the production of this hormone decreases or stops altogether. This is important as disruption in the production of the hormone may disrupt the normal development of your baby.

Effects of Hypothyroidism on your baby-

Hypothyroidism during pregnancy can affect your child’s developmental abilities. Many studies in this field have shown that such children tend to have learning difficulties and may even display lower IQ scores during tests. It was noticed that sometimes, hypothyroidism during pregnancy wasn’t diagnosed correctly as the pregnant mother did not show much apparent symptoms. This is also a major issue in the early diagnosis of the problem. Hence, it is absolutely imperative to test for thyroid problems early during pregnancy.

Prevention is the Best Cure-

It is thus very important that mothers be screened properly for thyroid issues even before they are pregnant and while they are pregnant. Some of the medically recommended steps that should be taken are –

  1. Screening before pregnancy as this can help to devise a solution for this condition.

  2. Women with goiter or enlarged thyroid should most certainly be screened.

  3. Women with a family history of hypothyroidism should be screened.

Treatments for Hypothyroidism During Pregnancy-

The doctors may suggest thyroid hormone replacement therapy wherein artificial T4 hormone is introduced into the body. This helps to maintain a constant rate of the thyroid hormone within the body. This can be done even before pregnancy as the developing fetus is completely dependent on the mother for its thyroid hormone until at least 12 weeks when the baby’s body can start producing it on its own. Also, the levels of this hormone should be regularly checked within the body through the TSH or the thyroid stimulating hormone tests to ensure that the levels are at a safe minimum. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Diabetes is a systemic disease which affects nerves. Hence the symptoms of pain and numbness in hands and feet. It depends mostly on the duration of the disease but control of blood sugar levels also helps to control the symptoms.
