Mr venu gopal reddy, the ideal way to control diabetes is to take prescribed medication regularly, take a restricted diet as advised by the doctor. Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, fruits like banana, mango, chikkoos & grapes. Exercise for more than 1 h a day. Avoid alcohol and smoking, if one follows these guidelines it is possible to check diabetes.

Hi alcohol generally not good on a daily basis, and it also depends on which type of alcohol yo taking. Being diabetic you have to be extremely careful about alcohol intake. Some times too, much of it may lead to fatty liver problem so certain alcohol good but in moderation

Priyankaji, you have asked three different queries, - yoga is better or gym, you have hypothyroidism and want to conceive. Doing yoga or gym choice is yours. I would do both. Regarding conception, if hypothyroidism is not well controlled, conception is not possible. To conceive tsh has to be lower, around 2 milli units/l. The recommendation is throughout the pregnancy is: 1st trimester 0.1 to 2 milli units, 2nd trimester 0.3 to 3 milli units & 3rd trimester 0.3 to 3.5 milli units. With this fetal evelopment is good, pregnancy out comes are good. Even efforts to reduce weight are fruitful only when tsh level is between 3 to 4 milli units. If you have any dubts please do come back. Thanks for the question.

I have high cholesterol and sugar what should I do?
high cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain.garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

How to encourage healthy eating habits in your toddler

Whether you have a toddler or a teen, I believe, five of the best strategies to improve nutrition and encourage smart eating habits in kids would be:

1. Have regular family meals.

2. Serve a variety of healthy foods and snacks.

3. Be a role model by eating healthy yourself.

4. Avoid battles over food.

5. Make eating a playtime and probably a way of spending quality time with your kids. Involve them in the process.

Kids who take part in regular family meals are also:

More likely to eat fruits, vegetables, and grains

Less likely to snack on unhealthy foods

Less likely to smoke, use marijuana, or drink alcohol

You could follow these basic guidelines:

1. Work fruits and vegetables into the daily routine, aiming for the goal of at least five servings a day.

2. Make it easy for kids to choose healthy snacks by keeping fruits and vegetables on hand and ready to eat. Other good snacks include low-fat yogurt, peanut butter and celery, or whole-grain crackers.

3. Serve lean meats and other good sources of protein, such as fish, eggs, beans, soya, tofu.

4. Choose whole-grain breads and cereals so kids get more fiber.

5. Limit fat intake by avoiding fried foods and choosing healthier cooking methods, such as broiling, grilling, roasting, and steaming. Choose low-fat or nonfat dairy products.

6. Limit fast food and low-nutrient snacks, such as chips and candy. But don't completely ban favorite snacks from your home. Instead, make them" once-in-a-while" foods, so kids don't feel deprived.

7. Limit sugary drinks, such as soda and fruit-flavored drinks. Serve water and low-fat milk instead.

And above all ----- be a role model

The best way for you to encourage healthy eating is to eat well yourself!

That's all for now, for my next dose (article. Stay tuned!

Only one product in india this product may remove insulin. Noni syrup 10 ml in a glass of normal water stir well and consume in 2to3 minutes after 30 minutes take meals mor and night. Continue your insulin test your sugar after 7 days. If sugar reduce then reduce insulin uites accordingly. Test weekly and reduce insulin it's comes zero then stop insulin and continue noni for long time. Feedback to me monthly.

Maybe the dose of antihypertensives needs to be increased or a different class of drugs used or added. The high uric acid levels can also be controlled with either Allopurinol, at doses which are adequate, or with newer drugs which are more effective and safer.

Lybrate-user, hyperthyroidism is a condition where your thyroid gland is hyper active. That activity needs to be curtailed by anti thyroid drugs, radio active iodine or surgery. Unfortunately no other systems of medicine has any drugs or cure for this condition. Basically it is a condition that needs life long therapy. First by anti thyroid drugs and later with thyroxine hormone. You may definitely try ayurvedic methods, but I am afraid those will not be helpful. Thanks.
