Hi, You can ask your mother to follow few exercises for shaping the fatty arms: -Weight lifting: You can use a 2 liter cold drink bottle or a water bottle for this exercise. If you have a pair of dumbbells at home it works out just fine. The aim is to reach out for something which weighs around one kilo. Hold that item with both your hands and lift it over your head. Your arms should be straight, as this is your starting position. Now lower the weight, by taking it behind your back. You need to reach it as low as you can. Make sure that you don’t hurt yourself. Bring up the weight above your head, again. The slower you move your arms, the more toned your arms will get. It is important to keep your upper arms close to your head and ears. Also try to practice this exercise in front of the mirror if you can, it will help you improve the style. You need to do 3 sets of 20 reps, which means you will move the item 60 items above your head. After every set you can take a rest of one minute. -Scissors: It is one of the best cardio workouts to lose weight. This exercise as mentioned in the name resembles a scissors being opened and closed. You need to begin by standing straight and lifting your arms to shoulder height, in front of you. Stretch your arms to the side and bring them back to your front, the right hand should overlap the left. This resembles an open scissors. You need to stretch them to the side again and bring them back to the front. This time your left arm should overlap your right. This is a complete rep and this exercise needs to be done in 3 sets of 10 reps every day. -Arm circles: You can hold two 600 ml water bottles in two hands while doing the arm circles. Stand with your feet placed shoulder width apart and arms extend straight to your sides, raised at shoulder height. Now, do 50 small circles with your hands by rotating them in the forward direction. Then switch to 50 small backward circles. The backward and forward arm movement tones all the muscles of the arms including the triceps, biceps, shoulders and back muscles as well.

It's cause of concern that your insulin is not acting to neutralize the sugar while you are taking good medicines prescribed by your experience doctor. This is non response of drugs. It's not fault in treatment by your doctor. I would suggest the support of ayurveda medicine as support to your current medicine. Both won't counteract with each other. Observing the response of this integrative approach, further directions would be decided. If you agree, I would mention the first phase of safe, side effect less, easy to take and economic medicines which will prevent complications also.

I am 21 year old. I have gone for thyroid test. The thyroid (TSH, ULTRASENSITIVE) value is 7.82 uU/ml. Is it normal or exceed the normal range. Please suggest me.

No this value is not normal. It's a sign of hypothyroidism Get an USG Neck done FT3/FT3/TSH in fasting condition (12 hours fasting: give blood in the morning empty stomach. Share your reports on Lybrate. It's important  you maintain  your body weight exercise regularly. Weight gain increases thyroid hormone requirements. Avoid cruciferous   group of veggies  like cabbage and broccoli. Avoid soya bean in all forms. No soya, nugget, chunk, tofu or milk. Limit their intake: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and bok choy. Cooking the vegetables can reduce the effect that cruciferous vegetables have on the thyroid gland. Limiting your intake to 5 ounces a day appears to have no adverse effect on thyroid function. Decrease gluten  intake from processed  food. Always try whole grain varieties of cereals which is rich in fibres and help improve  bowels (Take your thyroid replacement  medicine several hours before or several hours after food rich in fibres. Otherwise problem  with absorption  of hormone. 20 to 35 gram of fibres daily from all sources. Avoid excessive fatty (deep fried) and sugary food as hypothyroidism  causes your metabolism  to slow down &weight gain. Avoid highly salted food, chips, pickles, sauces as they Contain  large amount of sodium. Hypothyroidism  puts you at risk of high BP and excess sodium in salt aggravates Coffee  in excess. And coffee with thyroid hormone  replacement  can prevent absorption. Alcohol. It is toxic to thyroid gland and prevents  hormone production and absorption. The problems of hypothyroidism  gets better with medicines, diet and exercise. You will start better as the levels of your hormone normalises. Initially  you need to do the TSH test every 6 weeks till normal TSH then every 3 months Hope this helps

That is possible by following a modified lifestyle - like 1) taking a balanced diet that provides exact calories based on ideal body weight, extent of daily physical activity, 2) should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries and sweetened aerated drinks. Even fructose corn syrup containing products should be avoided. 3) consume good deal of green leafy vegetables and salads as well as fruits. 4) use whole grain products and whole grain flour for roti and chapati, avoid maida. 5) refrain from alcohol and snmoking. With all this daily exercise of more than 1 hour is a must, so that normal weight is maintained. As regards eating sweets occasionally a small piece can be taken.

Lybrate-userji, for a patient with diabetes, it ideal to maintain blood sugar - fasting around 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <7. To achieve this following steps need to be taken: 1) take prescribed medications regularly without missinga singel dose, 2) take balanced but restricted diet based on ideal body weight, extent of daily physical activity and sugar levels. 3) to exercise daily for about 1 hour, so as to maintain normal weight, increase glucose utilisation and reduce insulin resistance. 4) to consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, also permitted fruits (100 g a day). 5) refrain from alcohol and smoking, 6) avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and sweetened aerated drinks (colas), highly processed foods, bakery items and high fat milk products. Thaks for the question.

Hello, For ideal diabetes control your fasting blood glucose should be between 80-110, your 2 hour post prandial blood glucose should be less than 160, and your random blood glucose should be less than 180. Your HbA1C should be less than 6.5-7%. Hope this helps you. Thank you.

I don't think you require testosterone until it is deficient. Once check all parameters for sugar, TSH and blood pressure., if every thing is normal then try Cap Co enzyme Q available as Co Q Forte daily. You will feel energetic.

It is very essential to bring hypothyroidism in strict control, if efforts to reduce weight are to be successful. For that tsh levels should be between 3 to 4 milli units /l. So check this, if level is highr then increase the dose of thyroxine to bring tsh down to 3 to 4 milli units/l. Then follow a properly balanced diet and an exercise schedule, thjat will help in controlling weight. Thanks.

Fruits That Reduce Uric Acid

Uric acid is a problem for a lot of people, and can cause serious health issues. All of us have this compound in our blood, but in small quantities, and we should always try to keep those levels low. One way to do this is by watching what we eat and consuming fruits that can help reduce uric acid naturally.

1.Citrus Fruits

Citrus fruits can protect you from gouty arthritis. Uric acid dissolves in citric acid present in fruits such as orange and lime. Hence, eating citrus fruits helps in lowering the uric acid level in the blood. Vitamin C is great for reducing the amount of uric acid in our blood. It dissolves the crystals that stick to our joints, helping to get rid of them.

2.Apple

Apples help fight against high levels of uric acid, thanks to their high water content. Apple contains malic acid, which neutralizes uric acid, thereby preventing abnormal rise in the uric acid level that causes gout. You can also fight gout by taking two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar daily after meals.

3.Banana

Banana is a rich source of potassium. Potassium stimulates excretion of uric acid. It also helps in preventing crystallization of uric acid. Eat bananas daily to prevent gouty arthritis.

4.Cherry

Eat a cup of tart cherries or drink a glass of cherry juice daily to prevent gout attacks. Studies have shown that cherries help in lowering the uric acid level. The therapeutic effect of cherry is primarily attributed to compounds called anthocyanidins that help in neutralizing uric acid. In addition, the anti-inflammatory property of the compound helps in alleviating inflammation and pain in the joints.

4.Strawberries

Strawberries are one of the most recommended fruits to neutralize uric acid in the body. They are excellent antioxidants and diuretics, and have anti-inflammatory properties. They help to regulate the digestive system, keep you full, and contain Vitamins B, C, K, and potassium. It also helps with eye health, reversing signs of aging, prevents flaccidity and celulitis.

5.Pineapple

Pineapple contains bromelain ? an enzyme which has anti-inflammatory qualities and is known to reduce inflammation. It also stimulates the decomposition of uric acid crystals and hence, helps to alleviate the pain associated with gout. Bromelain is also an enzyme that aids in the digestion of protein and we know that a diet high in protein often leads to excess uric acid build up in the blood.

6.Blueberries

These wonder berries should be added to your list of Gout foods to eat. Blueberries contain vitamin C, vitamin E, and they are loaded with anti oxidants. They are great for reducing the inflammation associated with Gout. If you start to feel Gout pain then you should immediately add blueberries to your daily diet.

What was the main symptoms of diabetes and what precautions take in diabetes to prevent from it.
Diabetes mellitus invariably does not cause any symptoms, that is one of the reason why people do not realise that they have problem. When fully developed may cause excess urination, excess hunger, excess thirst, unexplained weight loss and tiredness. In most patients detection of diabetes is by chance. There are two types t1 dm where there is no insulin produced, an autoimmune disease, most often starts in early age. Second is t2 dm a familial disease, most common form. It is a preventable disease. If one maintains normal weight, takes a controlled diet, exercises regularly avoids too much of sweets, junk foods, pastries and sweetened aerated drinks then there is a possibility preventing or postponing t2 dm.
