You have to make effort to lose wt gradually over a period of time. This reduction will be more permanent. *Take protein rich food --- seeds, pulses, nuts, Also fruits, vegetables, greens and reduce cereals. *Green tea is also good. *Take lemon juice and honey in warm water in the early morning, empty stomach. *Avoid sweets, cakes, creams, fried foods, processed food and junk food. * Maintain food timings * Don’t miss breakfast. *Avoid heavy dinners and late night meals. *Avoid stimulants, aerated drinks sweetish juices, etc. And maintain good food habits. * Drink lots of water and keep hydrated. Avoid sugary soft drinks * Have adequate, timely, good night sleep *Even with desk job, you can spend morning and evening time for work out *Have vigorous physical exercise to improve absorption and blood circulation. Games like basketball, volley ball and stretch exercises like pull ups, cycling will be helpful.

In a known case of diabetic we need to control sugar levels with medication, aerobic exercise and following a diabetic diet and we have to examine the private part for pinpointing the cause of infection either fungal or bacterial and take treatment accordingly.

Hi i Am a diabetic since 2002 and have been able to control so far. Consulted many doctors and changed many a medicines. Last couple of days feeling too sleepy n exhausted. Havent checked and monitored my diabetic count fasting n p. Need a good doctor to work out my diet plan n medicine. Can you suggest? Thanks.

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science

For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for more than 2-3 hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugar cane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Fruits should be had as a mid meal. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. Diabetes is a condition in which due to insulin insufficiency the carbs are not metabolised and hence your cells are starving. This could lead to lack of energy and hence drowsiness too. Unconsciously there are chances that you might be restricting your intake and thus nutrients leading to deficiency. It's all a matter of discipline.

What is the treatment of thyroid?

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
Thyroid gland affects nearly every organ in the body. Many nutritional factors play a role in optimizing thyroid function. However, both nutrient deficiencies and excesses can trigger or exacerbate symptoms. Working in collaboration with a both a physician and a registered dietitian is essential to determine nutritional status for optimal thyroid health. Improper thyroid function causes undesired weight changes, significant cardiovascular risks, and symptoms such as fatigue, mood changes, and gastrointestinal upset, which can hinder the development of healthful behaviors. I focus on setting realistic goals for healthy changes and regular exercise when counseling clients. There many potential nutrient deficiencies and interactions with medications and supplements. Hence diligent care is to be taken while designing a holistic treatment plan. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

Endocrinologist,
I am a diabetic from last 6 years please tell me good medicine for the same.
There are a number of good mediciines for controlling diabetes, the choice of the drug will depend on your sugar levels, weight and physical activity. If levels are moderately high only one drug like metformin alone would be enough. So if you want to know exact treatment please provide all the details like fasting and pp sugar levels, hba1c%, weight, height, waist circumference, level of physical activity and type of diet and come in a private conversation, where I will be able to give a specific advise or prescription. In this communication we are supposed toonly give general guide lines.

FBS of 305 is extremely high and you need to take medicines urgently or your body systems will start getting effected adversely. FBS upto 100 is OK and from 100-126 is Prediabetic and 127 onwards is considered Diabetic. You are @ 305. So Please consult a Diabetologist urgently and take required medicines. Also consult a dietician and modify your diet so that your Sugar levels can be brought down. Also start min 30 mins exercise daily. All these steps must be taken on TOP PRIORITY.
