With a good diet plan you can reverse the effect of diabetes. And all foods are allowed even on diabetes. It just matters how much you eat and when you eat. There are many cases where high sugar levels are managed with diet and exercise and taken off of medicines. For a personalised diet plan you can consult with me on private chat.

Dear lybrate-user, it is good that you wants to stop smoking, try this method we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) lungs mixes oxygen in blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like nicotine etc. In oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body all organs like lungs, heart, kidney etc. In our body. How to quit: by willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" reduce one by one day by day. If you need any support have counseling help

If you truly love him, you wouldn't break up with him. You would see how much he can use the relationship as a motivation to get out of the depression. Depression is curable. If is unwilling and not cooperative, then you can take a call. In terms of helping him, there are limitations and a p[articularly concerning dynamic that can hamper and become somewhat gamey is if he puts you in a mother's role and also if he becomes passive expecting you to do all the work. Obviously, that will never work for him. So make all the rules clear about this. He4 needs to get into a good vigorous exercise program for 30 minutes every day which makes the body produce natural antidepressants, but do check with his physician before venturing to attempt this. Talk therapy helps a lot to relieve the depression, but he could also have a good and reliable confidante to do the same, like you. This is the only condition where he is required to literally do the opposite of what he feels like doing. Depression makes him want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make him too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, he will need to fight this disease. He must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, and wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. He can watch a lot of sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer himself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose himself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. I hope you can love him until he is through with this condition. Remember if he is not cooperative, you are wasting your time and you can quit. Whatever happens please incorporate these three important adaptations in his life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If he did these three things lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate his sufferings. If he is still not relieved from the depression, then go first to a counselor and later to a psychiatrist, if the counselor advises you. The pro0cess is tough but not impossible.

This question is about a behavioural issue - procrastination. Anything I have to do that will take time and thought I procrastinate. The very easy ones that does not need a thought, I do fast and quick. Basically I don't plan for anything at all and wait for the last moment to take actions. Due to this of late I have been missing on some personal and organizational deadlines which makes me think that procrastination is now baked into my character. Could you advise how can I go about getting courage to do planning and finish off the tough tasks at the earliest time possible?

M. Phil Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Hyderabad
Procrastination is like one of those bad habits that needs to be broken. It affects ones confidence levels thus making a person doubt his/her ability at times. Please be assured that it can be overcome with a little bit of planning. If you're supposed to finish certain tasks during a day, start with simple tasks and if a task is complex, break the tasks into smaller steps. Encourage yourself to achieve each small step instead of looking at the big task. The satisfaction that you will experience after completion of each step will push you to achieve the next step. If you follow this consistently for a few weeks, you'll notice that your tendency to procrastinate will reduce a good deal.

I am a computer engineer present I have a social anxiety disorder please I need some suggests.

I am a computer engineer present I have a social anxiety disorder please I need some suggests.
Anxiety has all to do with fear and your inability (or so you would tend to think) to handle the same. Fear is based on looking too much into the future and imagining things that usually do not tend to happen (usually 90% of your fears will not happen). You need to change your perception of the fearful stimulus then you can change your response to the fear. The first one is the best and will preempt the need for the second. If you are already far gone into the reaction mode, then you need both responses to counter the attack. The way we see things in life (like half empty or half full glass) is very dependent on our attitude. Attitude may have developed over many years but fortunately can change in a matter of sustained choices made and acted up on now. Accordingly you choose to see things as either threatening or as an opportunity. The opportunist will be positive and work with the situation to make good out of it. The individual who sees it as threatening, will, out of fear, try to avoid/run away from the situation or react with anxiety. Yes, self-belief does impact it too, but you can see that prior to that, perception will tarnish the belief system too. Here, you can see that all the resolution lies in just changing your perception/attitude, even if it is against odds. Changing your response, despite the perception, is building up of your reserves and resources to handle any contingency that life throws up at you. And life throws up situations quite regularly and heavily. For this you need to develop a fit mind and body: The former, by meditation and mind exercises; and the later, by exercises and proper diet. You need good sleep too. Included in the development of the mind is the handling of emotions, in your case, fear. These changes will give you a handle on life and your perceptions and responses. Prayer is really powerful, if you are a spiritual person. Repeat some personally framed affirmations that are geared to calming you down and building confidence. Do a personality course too. Anything that develops you personally will be of great assistance in building resilience.

Hello doctor! I have a lot of negativity inside me. Everytime in every petty situation I always think negative about the situation. Even I have lost self-confidence, self-trust as I always think that it's my fault always whatever happens to and around me. I think whatever the decision I make for any situation, it's always wrong. I don't know when it started but now I think that this is at peak now and I have no control over it. It seems that the negative thoughts inside me always dominate the positive thoughts as I am not able to think positive, if I try, not even then. Now it's affecting my life a lot. Now I use ro turn even a simplest situation into a complex one. And everything is happening on its own, I feel helpless. Why is this happening to me? I am just 21 years old and there is a long journey of life, but if this problem remains in me, I know that it will have a very bad impact on my life in future. How to get rid of this problem and what can be the root of this problem?

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. The duty of your mind is to think and imagine. If you are unable to provide meaningful and creative tasks to your mind, it is quite natural that the mind will wander away. Wandering mind always ventures into negative and obsessive territory. You need to provide creative and meaningful tasks to your mind so as to keep it engaged. Physical exercises, outdoor games, entertainment, socialization, active reading, active listening etc helps keeping your mind engaged. I suggest online mind power learning. Take care.

You could be having an eye strain problem or an emotional one related to anger. So do visit an optician and then a counselor. One of them may advise meeting with a neurologist to investigate any problem that is neurological in nature. If the emotional problem resonates with some truth, do meet with a counselor and learn how to deal with that emotion, even if it is from early childhood. Due to your age, there could be some issues from childhood, which are coming up for the last time seeking a resolution. Do sort it out now for a lifetime of relief.

I can imagine, how difficult it must have been for you to continue life without that person. Have you expressed your sadness, grief? please talk to someone about how you feel after losing this person. Talk about your pain of losing that person. Otherwise your suppressed sadness and pain will develop into more negative thoughts and feelings. You will find it difficult to take rational decisions and you will experience additional stress. The more you talk about the lost person and the more you talk about your pain, more is the cognitive acceptance which will help you to move ahead in life" grieving" is a process, not something to'get over' with. And as part of this process, you need to experience the pain. If you don't express your feelings, the grieving process is retarded and the feelings are internalised which manifest themselves in somatic pains like headaches, body aches etc without a good reason. I understand your pain but loss is an integral part of life. It is not something that happens to us as we live, it is life itself. Understand that life will never be the same again for you but there is life ahead, for you. And this life can be good, with purpose and meaningful. Nothing of what is lost is replaced. A meaningful part of an identity and time is never replaced. Give yourself enough time to feel and experience the pain. But then you need to move on. Resolution does not mean forgetting. You will cherish that person's memories for the rest of your life. But you need to learn to" let go" of that relation you had with the person and move on. It is not very easy. But this if life. Take care.

I am afraid of falling in love, yet i tend to get attached. I have nothing to live for. How should i go on?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your fear of falling in love may be restricting you to the attachment level alone. Good relationships experience bonding. Why would you think that you have nothing to live for. If that is the case, who will want to live with someone who has no good reason to live life? Failure is part and parcel of life. If you don?t learn from it, that could be your problem. All success is attained from and due to failure. Yes, relationship with the opposite sex is difficult and involves a lot of nuances. The very thing that attracts can become the obstacles or contentious points and become the playground for numerous games. So I recommend that you work on yourself and find reasons to live. If you do that, this will add tons to your desirability, and the durability for the staying power you can exercise on girls. Your self-confidence and self-image do need some investment for others to like you and to want you. Attend a personality development course and some personal grooming classes too. And remember that ultimately the one great feature that will stand out and sustain relations is, character. If you have oodles of it, you will never have a problem either in the rejection or acceptance by a female companion. It is worth its weight in gold.
