Hiccups are caused by the irritation of the phrenic nerve supplying the diaphragm muscle. It can be caused by gas or acidity. You can try taking an antacid syrup 1 to 2 tsp three times a day. It will give you relief.

1. If you are prediabetic there is no need to go to any doctor. 2. Reduce your weight by 5 KGS. 3. Change your food habits. 4. You can control and bring down your sugar levels by change in diet.>> Avoid 3 big meals. Instead take small mini meals every 2/3 hours. Take veg salad with every minimeal..>> Eat whole grain food/grains like ragi, wholewheat, jowar instead of refined grains like maida/ sooji/ white bread etc.>> Avoid all forms of simple sugars like Colas, juices, sweets, cakes, biscuits, pizzas, noodles etc..>> Eat fruits  with low/medium GI index like apple, guava, mosambi, orange.  .>> Do at least 30-45 mins of exercise everyday.

Merely because your parents have diabetes you need not restrict eating sugar or carbohydrates unless you too have got Diabetes. It is for diabetics that we need to restrict sugars because their system is unable to transport the blood glucose in to the cell. A non diabetic person is capable of transporting his/her glucose in to the cell so there is no problem One should ensure that the quantity of carbohydrates (Sugar) is not more than desired calorie demand to be generated from carbohydrates else the excess gets converted in to fats and causes obesity, which predisposes for diabetes in years after middle age. That is because increased body weight means more tissue, means more requirement of insulin to transport glucose, and the pancreas even if supplying normal quantity of insulin may not do so in such increased demand situations. So eat moderately, keep burning your fat by regular exercises and live healthily.

Type 2 Diabetes - Living Well With It!

Diabetes is a disease that affects the way your body deals with glucose in the blood and the glucose absorbed from the food you ingest. Diabetes is generally of two basic types - Type 1 and Type 2. Apart from these two types, there are other kinds as well including gestational diabetes that some women suffer from during their pregnancy. Type 2 Diabetes is a condition where the cells of the body do not make proper use of the insulin being produced by the pancreas. Living with this kind of a condition may seem debilitating at first, but here are a few things you can do to make life easier despite Type 2 Diabetes.

  1. Weight: Being overweight is one the foremost side effects and sometimes, even cause of Type 2 Diabetes. To make your life easier, you can lose weight so that the complications involved are that much less. Diet and exercise are key for appropriate weight loss. Watch your diet so that you can eliminate high cholesterol as well. This can ensure that unnecessary amount of fat does not stick to your muscles and organs, which in turn will fuel better functioning of the same.
  2. Health Care: Being fit with Type 2 Diabetes does not merely mean staying within your normal weight range. It also means taking care of your medication and insulin doses so that you can function in a more normal way. Make your family and friends your support system as you go about life so that people can help you and recognise symptoms when something goes wrong. Be in constant touch with your health care providers and the general physician you see so that they are in the loop and you know exactly what to do in case there is an emergency.
  3. Exercise: Being active is a great way to keep your blood sugar level low even as you ensure that you heart is in good condition. This will further eliminate the risk of heart disease, hypertension and high cholesterol. Sweating it out also helps the insulin work in a better manner within your body.
  4. Balance: While you may be asked to remove sugar from your diet, there is no need to stay away from proper meals. You can have a fibre rich diet that also has plenty of fruits and vegetables so that you get your due nutrition and maintain a fit body.

Besides genetic factor involved, it is also a life style disease. Weight reduction, active life style & proper diet having less of carbohydrate, high fiber diet. Fasting & feast not recommended in diabetics. Never do heavy exercise on empty stomach. It can lead to low sugar levels, which can be very dangerous. Always keep glucose biscuits & glucose available for low blood sugar. Watching your lifestyle is the main thing you need to do if you are suffering from Type 2 Diabetes.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

You need a well planned diet chart to follow and you cholesterol levels and sugar level will definitely be under control with in 10-20 days. *** for proper diet chart you can consult privately.

Strictly speaking, diabetic should avoid alcohol completely. But if you insist on taking it, ensure that your blood sugars and all other parameters are normal. Then, you may take one 30 ml drink of hard liquor (usually containing around 45% alcohol) per day. However, if you are on Insulin, avoid alcohol.
