Fiber should be at least 1.4 oz / day instead of 3 heavy meals, we should go for 4-5 small mid intervals replace bakery products and fast foods by simple whole cooked cereals, and don't eat carbohydrates 2 hours before bedtime consume fresh fruit and vegetables at least 5 exchange/ day.

Hi Your fasting is slightly high where as your PP is good. Fbs should be kept within 120. Try to avoid carbohydrates. After 7 pm. Take in lots of salads instead and a protein drink before going to bed. This keeps your fasting sugars within limits. If it's still high then you need dose adjustment.

Hi My height is 5.7 inches and my weight is 107kgs. Over weight. Some one advised to check my thyroid levels. T3 and T4 are normal but TSH is <0.01. I tried to test again, report show the same. Can I know more about this.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, thyroid report is fine, except that tsh is a bit low. But that does not appear to be the cause of tour being over weight. In fact you are having grade 2 obesity with a bmi of 36.33 kg/m2 (normal <23 kg/m2). Your ideal body weight should be 70 kgs. This needs to taken care, by regular exercise and diet control it is better if you join a gym, and start exercise under the guidance of a qualified instructor, plus regulate the diet. Aim at reduction of 5 to 8 kg of present weight. That will give a considerable relief.

Know About Thyroid Disease, Foods and Drinks

Know About Thyroid Disease, Foods and Drinks

If you have thyroid disease -- whether you are hypothyroid (underactive thyroid) or hyperthyroid (overactive thyroid), whether you hashimoto's, graves' disease, or other conditions, what you eat can have an impact on your health. Here are ten things to know about thyroid conditions and your diet, food and beverages, and their interaction with your health and medications.

  • Goitrogens are substances -- occurring naturally in certain foods -- that can cause your thyroid gland to enlarge. The main goitrogenic foods are cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, kale, and cabbage, among others, as well as soy foods. Goitrogenic foods can also function like an antithyroid drug and actually slow down the thyroid and make it underactive (hypothyroidism.)
  • Coconut oil recommended for thyroid patients, and while it can be a healthful option, it's not a cure
  • One should not take coffee until an hour after you've taken your thyroid hormone replacement medication. Otherwise, the coffee can affect absorption, and make your thyroid medication less effective.
  • Iodized salt in some areas of the world, iodized salt is an essential way to prevent iodine deficiency, cretinism and retardation due to iodine deficiency in pregnant women.
  • Many thyroid patients struggle with constipation, and extra weight. One of the key tactics that can help is increasing fiber intake, particularly from foods.
  • One of the most powerful things thyroid patients can do to help their health and metabolism is to drink enough water. Water helps your metabolism function more efficiently, and can help reduce your appetite, get rid of water retention and bloating, improve your digestion and elimination, and combat constipation.

Bhuvanaji, if your mother diabetes and if it has been detected late in life, then it is most likely to t2 dm. This is a familial condition, meaning if parents have it, then children are likely to get it. But it is also a preventable disease. You can prevent it by adapting a modified life style, which means: regular exercise for more than 1 hour a day, maintaining normal weight, taking a balanced and restricted diet, giving exact calories based on ideal body weight and extent of daily exercise. Plus avoiding too much of sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Consuming more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Refraining form alcohol and smoking. Another common type of diabetes is t1 seen usually in children, where patients require insulin injection for survival and treatment.

Precautions and daily care for diabetes type 2.which kind of medicines works well.

Precautions and daily care for diabetes type 2.which kind of medicines works well.
Hello, If one has diabetes then most important is to start appropriate treatment with either oral anti-diabetics or Insulin depending upon the severity of hyperglycemia, plus strict dietary control and regular exercise for at least 1 hour a day. Other precautions are- avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks (colas) and refrain from alcohol and smoking. Dietary intake should match the daily needs based on ideal body weight, extent of exercise and blood glucose levels. As regards medicines there are a large number of them, but the choice depends on the specific needs of a patient. Unless all the details are made known - like fasting, PP glucose levels, HbA1c%, height, weight, extent of daily exercise and dietary pattern, there is no way to recommend any medication. Plus in this communication we are supposed to give only general suggestions/guidelines, but no prescriptions. For that one has to come in a private conversation. Thanks.

For cervical spondylitis you need good physiotherapy. If your hba1c /average blood sugar is less than 7 than it can b said that your diabetes is controlled, otherwise from your multiple symptoms//diseases it is less likely, for numbness can b long term complication of diabetes./for which you need. Tab nervup pg 1 daily at night. For long period.

Hello Doctor, I want to know the reason behind my mother's sudden death. When I came from college, I saw my mother lying in kitchen, there was no scars, no pain, it seemed like she is normally sleeping in peace. I called ambulance, but they said that my mother is no more. I asked the reason to them, then they requested to do post mortem. I can not see post mortem happening with my mom's death so I refused. I do not know the reason what happened with my mom. I can tell you step by step whatever I know which may help you to find the exact reason behind my mother's sudden death. 1) My mom was a diabetic patient since 10 years and it was normal usually does up and down between 100 to 300. 2) Mom got injury on head due to table corner attack onto her head. It got swallowed so I took her to hospital in May, 2015, there they said that my mom's diabetes has been reached upto 500 and she has to be admitted in the hospital immediately to control diabetes. 3) Dr.from Hospital did treatment for 3 days and than discharged when diabetes got normal with 100. 4) We took mom at home, she was having tablets and seeming like she is recovering. 5) My mom died on 8th Sep, 2015. Prior to this day i.e. 7th Sep-she was all fine but on 8th Sep, 2015 from 1 am till morning she dint sleep. I can say she dint sleep for whole night. She said this to me while waking me up in the morning at 6 am. She also said that she dint sleep whole night DUE TO ACIDITY. 6) I than left college at 7 am by kissing her on her chick and putting her on bed to rest. She slept on bed than I do not know what happened to her as I left for college. 7) I came from college and saw my mom is lying in the kitchen peacefully, no pain on face, no scars, nothing, Seems like she is sleeping peacefully. I also saw a pan of tea, that means she had milk tea though she was having high acidity. I assume that might give her stroke and due to stroke, she might got died. But I am just assuming. Please help me knowing the exact reason behind her death. I have mentioned the whole case study and for medical records to analyse better.

Tips to cut down on sugary foods

PGDHHM, BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon
Tips to cut down on sugary foods

Sugary foods and drinks can cause tooth decay, especially if you eat them between meals. The longer the sugary food is in contact with the teeth, the more damage it can cause. The sugars found naturally in whole fruit are less likely to cause tooth decay because the sugars are contained within the structure of the fruit. Sugars are also added to a wide range of foods, such as sweets, cakes, biscuits, chocolate, and some fizzy drinks and juice drinks. These are the sugary foods that we should cut down on.

Tips to cut down on sugars

For a healthy, balanced diet, cut down on foods and drinks containing added sugars.
Instead of sugary fizzy drinks and juice drinks, go for water or unsweetened fruit juice
Swap cakes or biscuits for a currant bun, scone or some malt loaf with low-fat spread.
If you take sugar in hot drinks or add sugar to your breakfast cereal, gradually reduce the amount until you can cut it out altogether.
Rather than spreading jam, marmalade, syrup, treacle or honey on your toast, try a low-fat spread, sliced banana or low-fat cream cheese instead.
Check nutrition labels to help you pick the foods with less added sugar, or go for the low-sugar version.
Try halving the sugar you use in your recipes - it works for most things except jam and ice cream.
Choose wholegrain breakfast cereals, but not those coated with sugar or honey.

Having a first degree relative with diabetes does indeed increase your chances of developing the same. But you can avoid it by following a healthy lifestyle. Eat and sleep on time avoid heavy meals at one time with long periods of fasting between 2 meals avoid/minimise fast food/oily food/ bakery products exercise regularly or atleast try to be more active. Eg walk instead of travelling by vehicle for short distances, use the stairs instead of lift drink more water eat more of fresh fruits and vegetables quit smoking in case you do.
