Mr. Lybrate-user, a person with prediabetes, has to adapt a modified life style. Which means he should take a properly planned balanced diet, avoid too much of sweets, do not indulge in sweetened aerated drinks, junk foods, pastires and deep fried foods. Also avoid fructose corn syrup containing products, highly processed foods. Refrain from alcohol and smoking. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain products. Total caloric intake has to be meeting the exact demand based on ideal body weight. Plus exercise daily for at least 1 hour. It is difficult to predict whether diabetes will occur or not and what is the percentage.

Mr Pranjul, If you get a fasting and after food blood sugar check, it is easy to find out whether diabetes is there. If is present then only option is to start treatment with proper anti diabetic drugs either oral or with insulin injections. Plus diet control and regular exercise also are required.

A type of arthritis that occurs when flexible tissue at the ends of bones wears down. The wearing down of the protective tissue at the ends of bones (cartilage) occurs gradually and worsens over time. Joint pain in the hands, neck, lower back, knees or hips is the most common symptom. Homeopathy helps to slow down the process of joint pain & also gives a long term relief in pain without side effects. Dr. raj bonde.

My father aged 60 have sugar and BP. Now recently 4 days back he got bp of 210. Now he is hospitalised. Presently BP and sugar is normal. Blood urea is 109 mg/dl. S.Creatinine is 6.9 mg/dl. Sodium 126 mmol/L, potassium 3.5 mmol/L, Chloride 99 mmol/L. This is todays report. But yesterday S.Creatinine was 7 and 4 days back it was 4.3. As of now compared to yesterday creatinine is decreasing. Here doctors are suggesting for dialysis is this necessary. As we consulted other doctor they are saying dialysis is not required at this stage. Please suggest me. What to do should we take him for Bangalore.

Hello, it is difficult give an opinion from a distance regarding such acute conditions. However, if bp is near normal and blood glucose also in good contro, then by giving adequate fluid intake electrolytes can be managed. Same is the case with urea and creatinine. Best is to abide by the on the spot clinical expert, who can be the best judge. It may best to shift to a better equipped hospital as in bangalore. Still I suggest go by your attending physician's advice. Thanks. L.

Hi Anam Numbness of your hands could be related to thyroid problem. There might also be deficiency of vitamin B-12. You should start exercising daily for 30 minutes. simple aerobics will be enough. Start taking calcium, vitamin-D and Vitamin B-12 supplements. One tablet of calcium daily and One for Vitamin B-12 daily For vit.-D take cholecalciferol sachet weekly for 6 weeks. This solution is for now but it wont be permanent. For a permanent solution your thyroid problem needs to be treated and that is POSSIBLE with HOMOEOPATHIC medicines; you will be cured and there wont be any need of taking thyronorm. Your migraine will also get cured. For this a proper consultation is required so that your case can be analysed and treatment given accordingly. For this you can consult any good homoeopath or me as you are in Delhi only. Otherwise you can make good use of Lybrate.

What are the symptoms of diabetes and how we take insulin IBM sugriv level is 600.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

What are the symptoms of diabetes and how we take insulin IBM sugriv level is 600.
Lybrate-user, diabetes invariably does not produce any symptoms, hence many persons do not come to know that they have diabetes. When fully developed usually observed symptoms include excess thirst, excess hunger, excess urination, unexplained tiredness and weight loss. The second part of the question is not clear. Is it saying sugar levels is 600 mg, so how much insulin one has to take? before deciding on that one has to look at whether the patient has any insulin secretion at all. A c- peptide assay has to be done. 600 mg sugar is very high and it may lead to diabetic ketoacidosis if the patient has t1 dm or may lead to hyper osmolar hypertonic state (in elderly patients). Dose of insulin has to be slowly increased by observing glucose reduction over a period. So difficult to give exact dose. But if some one has such a high level, hospitalisation may needed.

Dear lybrate user, protein is one of the most vital nutritional substances which are required for human body. Almost every high protein diet contains purine. This purine produces uric acid on oxidation. Excess uric acid is accumulated at the joints of human beings as urate salts. This accumulation of urate salts lead to pain & swelling of those affected joints & this condition is clinically known as gout. You should avoid high protein rich diet like mutton, chicken, beef, eggs, sea fish, spinach, garden pea, tomato, lentils etc. Also you need to take homoeopathic mother tincture urtica urens q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to dissolve the accumulated excess urate salts from the joints.

Dear lybrate-user, It is always better to do Free T3 and Free T4 rather than Total. The decision to increase or decrease Thyroid dosage depends not just on the lab report but on the status of symptoms. Other factors relate to status of other metabolic imbalances and the presence or absence of comorbidities. Management of Hypothyroodism should be comprehensive through an elaborate protocol. Prima facie I would say, if your energy leves are good, weight under control and moods quite positive, there is no need to change your present dose of Thyroxine.

THYROID DISORDER AND WEIGHT LOSS

1. Optimize Your Thyroid Treatment

Some thyroid patients -- and practitioners -- believe that if athyroid patient has gained weight, or can't lose weight, simply getting on thyroid medication will be the solution. Unfortunately, this seems to be less common that patients who, despite being treated, continue to gain weight despite eating well and exercising, or who can't lose weight no matter what diet or exercise approach they try. 

Many practitioners believe that for thyroid patients who want to lose weight, the first step is to optimize -- not just normalize -- your thyroid treatment. What is considered "optimal" Not only are TSH, Free T4 and Free T3 levels considered important, but Reverse T3, ferritin, leptin, and other issues come into play in terms of optimal thyroid treatment.

2. Hormone Resistance Issues

Some practitioners believe that hormone resistance problems -- including leptin resistance , insulin resistance , and thyroid resistance -- contribute to the difficult some thyroid patients face in losing weight . This means, having fasting glucose, leptin, and Reverse T3 tested , evaluated, and potentially treated.

3. Increase Your Metabolism

Because hypothyroidism lowers metabolism, one of the most important things you can do is to focus on is diet, foods, and exercise that can help raise your metabolism .

4. Change Your Diet

Making changes to your diet can be essential to successful weight loss. This can include avoiding overconsumption of goitro genic foods and vegetables (watch out for those raw juice diets!), going gluten/wheat-free , and limiting simple carbohydrates and sugar .

5. Get Enough Sleep

A crucial factor for weight loss is getting enough sleep . One study showed that women who slept 5 hours per night were 32% more likely to experience major weight gain (an increase of 33 pounds or more) and 15% more likely to become obese over the course of the 16-year study, compared to those who slept 7 hours a night. Some practitioners have even said it's better to skip a morning workout and use the time to sleep!

6. Try Supplements

There are hundreds of diet and weight loss supplements on the market, and very few of them are proven to be effective. But some may be of help to you in lowering appetite, lowering blood sugar, burning fat, or raising metabolism. One in particular that has some research behind it is conjugated linoleic acid . (Be careful, however, about supplements that are loaded with iodine.)

7. Get the Right Kind of Exercise

Many practitioners recommend regular exercise for thyroid patients who want to lose weight, but not excessive exercise -- the kind that leaves you exhausted or recuperating for days. My exercise of choice is T-Tapp , but other patients have found walking, Pilates, and other forms of exercise effective. The challenge is of course actually doing the exercise!

Lybrate-userji, looking at the blood sugar report, it is clear that she has very high levels, (t2 diabetes). Needs to be treated with appropriate drugs, diet control and daily exercise. The problem must have been there for over a few months, that is why sugar levels are so high. Along with the treatment for diabetes, please get her eyes checked for ruling out any possibility of diabetic retinopathy. Go to any good eye specialist and get retinal examination done within next few days. If you want me advise on specific drug treatment and other details, then please come in a private conversation where I can guide specifically including giving prescriptions for the same. In this communication we are supposed to give only general advise. Also see that she avoids sweets completely, reduces intake of deep fried foods, avoids junk foods, pastries, white bread and other bakery items. She should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits about 100 g a day. Should walk for 1 hour every day. Thanks for the question.

Foods For Hyperthyroidism

M.Sc. in Dietetics and Food Service Management , Post Graduate Diploma In Computer Application, P.G.Diploma in Clinical Nutrition & Dietetics , B.Sc.Clinical Nutrition & Dietetics
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Foods For Hyperthyroidism

1. Foods Belonging to Brassica Family:
Consume foods like cauliflower, brussels sprouts, peanuts, cabbage, broccoli, kale, mustard greens, turnips, rutabagas, soybeans, spinach etc which contains goitrogens.
• Goitrogens helps to block the ability of thyroid to use iodine and hence slows down the activity of the thyroid.
• Eat raw cruciferous vegetables to get maximum benefit as goitrogens are active in the raw state.

2. Include More Berries:
Add at least one serving of berries in your diet plan to control hyperthyroidism.
• Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries contain anti-oxidants which improves your immune system.

3. Omega-3 fatty Acid and Proteins:
Omega -3- fatty acid helps to control the hyper stimulated thyroid gland. Proteins are necessary for the building of muscles and to provide energy for the body. Protein sources also contain l-glutamine which helps in rebuilding the gut and de-inflaming the body.
• Eat cold water fish, flax seed oil and nuts to get the omega-3-fatty acid necessary for the body.
• Include soy, turkey, walnuts, salmon, tuna and trout in your hyperthyroidism diet.

 

4. Dairy Products:
Hyperactivity of the thyroid gland can remove the calcium from your blood. The body compensates this loss by leaching calcium from the bones. This can cause osteoporosis.
• Include three servings of yoghurt, cheese, milk or cottage cheese in your daily diet.

5. Spinach and Collard Greens:
If you are allergic to dairy products, you can get your daily supply of calcium from vegetable sources like spinach collard greens etc.
• Figs, prunes and sesame seeds are also excellent hyperthyroidism foods.

6. Zinc:
This is another vital component of hyperthyroidism diet. The hyperactive thyroid gland can deplete the zinc.
• Include almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, peanuts which are rich in zinc in your diet.

7. Fiber Rich Foods and Anti Inflammatory Foods:
Fiber rich foods are beneficial for the proper working of the thyroid gland. Anti inflammatory herbs help to reduce the inflammation of the thyroid which is the reason for hyperthyroidism.
• Include whole grain foods, like oatmeal, whole grain breads, brown rice etc in your food.
• The anti inflammatory herbs to be included in your diet are turmeric, ginger, rosemary, cinnamon and oregano.

8. Antioxidant Rich Foods and Vitamin D:
It is also necessary to consume antioxidants and vitamin d rich foods in the diet. This will reduce the oxidative stress caused by hyperthyroidism. Vitamin D can reduce the inflammation and auto- immune reactions of the body.
• Avocados, olive oil broccoli etc contain antioxidants.
• Salmon is a good source of vitamin D. You can get your daily dose of vitamin D from eggs, mushrooms etc.
• Spend 20-30 minutes in the sun to get the necessary vitamin D for the body.

9. Cassava, Sorghum, and Millet
These food items contain cyanogenic glucosides which blocks the iodine availability of the gland.
• These foods increase the immune function and gives protection from osteoporosis

10. Vitamin C and Vitamin E
These vitamins are helpful in reducing the oxidative stress caused by the hyperactivity of thyroid glands.
• All the citrus fruits are rich in vitamin C.
• Bell peppers, olive oil, wheat etc are a good source of vitamin E.

lybrate-user, Looking at the thyroid report, TSH is low (0.10), so you can reduce the dose by 12.5 mcg per day (to 87.5 mcg). Then check TSH after 6 weeks if it has been able to maintain TSH in desired range (3 to 4 mU/L). Thanks.
