For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Walking for 30 mins a day for at least 5 days in a week is recommended. Follow a stress free life. Medicine will depend on blood sugar report.

Alcohol is a direct source of increasing blood sugars. That is it easily gets digested and increases the blood sugar levels in the body. Therefore alcohol intake further only worsens the blood sugar levels in diabetic patients. It would be better to avoid alcohol intake to help managing sugars and therefore prevent the development of any diabetic complications further.

Sir my weight is 72 kg, height 5" 1' and age is 30. Having hypothyroidism, tsh is 5. 5. Please suggest medicine to treat thyroid and reduce my weight ?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Need to know how much is the strength ( mg ) of the thyronorm you are taking. You may have to increase. Then weight reduction can be achieved by only exercising to burn your fat and cutting down your food to half of what you are taking now. Read my article on obesity in health tips column. Ask more doubts privately.

How can a healthy person get rid of getting diabetes mellitus by taking even correct balanced diet.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

How can a healthy person get rid of getting diabetes mellitus by taking even correct balanced diet.
Mr. Lybrate-user, t2 dm is a familial disease, meaning if parents have then children are most likely to get it. But even otherwise, one can get it, mainly due to overweight, inactivity and uncontrolled consumption of too much sweets and junk foods. Hence, if one wants to remain free from diabetes, then adapting a modified lifestyle is very essential. Modified life style means: regular exercise for more than 1 h a day, maintaining weight near normal (ideal body weight = height in cms - 100 x 0.9 = kgs), taking a balanced and restricted diet, giving necessary amount of calories based on ibw and amount of daily exercise. Plus stay away from alcohol and smoking.

Solution is simple. We need to test both husband and wife and diagnose the cause of this problem. Then we need to give drugs for that cause.

Slow passing of urine is not due to proteins in urine. It may be a sign of prostate. You will need a usg (sonography) with residual urine to rule out prostate. Urine proteins suggest either infection or slight kidney damage due to diabetes or blood pressure. Please do 2 tests s. Creatinine and microalbumin to rule out these pathologies.
