Can diabetic person have fennel seeds in breakfast tea for sweetness? Please guide.
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Fennel seeds can be taken by a person with diabetes. Whether adding those to tea, (for sweetness), I am not sure. But you can consume those. There are quite a few benefits being claimed about those seeds. Thanks.

your doctor is perfectly correct. in mild subclinical hypothyroidism where t4 is normal one can wait and watch to see the progress. if there is an increasing trend of tsh on follow up it's a good indication to start thyroxine. no thyroxine can be tapered and stopped in well controlled hypothyroidism. it's a misconception that it cannot be stopped. response varies from patient to pt

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Your information is very general, so difficult to comment. There is no mention whether she has hypo or hyperthyroidism. It is better if full details are mentioned. Please understand whichever thyroid condition it may be, treatment has to be continued for lifetime. Particularly in hypothyroidism she has to take prescribed amount of levothyroxine tablets daily without fail for her lifetime. If dosage is frequently altered or drug is stopped in between, then TSH levels will go up. All the symptoms reappear. Plus all the instructions regarding taking of the tablet that is - early morning on empty stomach, nothing there after for 1 to 1 and half hour, should be followed. She has to restrict her diet. Avoid soy beans, soy containing products and use whole grain flour for roti and chapati. Stop taking foods made from maida. If you have any doubts please come back. It is better if you come in a private conversation with all details like TSH, T4 & T3 levels and current dosage, her weight and height and symptoms if any, then I will be able to guide specifically and help in controlling the condition. Thanks.

How Ayurveda Helps Manage Gestational Diabetes?

How Ayurveda Helps Manage Gestational Diabetes?

Diabetes during pregnancy is known as gestational diabetes. It is interesting to note that the chances of getting gestational diabetes, is one of the most common complication of pregnancy. It has increased by almost 40%. Also, gestational diabetes not only affects the health of the mother, but also the health of the baby. What usually happens with gestational diabetes is that the blood sugar level, of both the mother and the baby go above the normal level.

Ayurveda can help treat this disease. Here are the most common Ayurveda remedies for gestational diabetes.

  1. Gurmaar: Gurmaar, called "The Sugar Killer" is also known as Gymnema sylvestre in medical jargon. Gurmaar also contains gymnemic acid molecules, which are crucial because they have an anti-diabetic effect. They work by combining with glucose molecules, which are in the blood stream. These stop the glucose from entering the bloodstream. 
  2. Karela: Karela is commonly known as bitter gourd and its biological name is Momordica charantia. It has anti-diabetic properties and also contains many other micronutrients, which are crucial in preventing the complications which arise from gestational diabetes.
  3. Vizaysaar: Vizaysaar comes from the bark of a tree whose biological name is Pterocarpus marsupium. It is very useful for diabetes. If you immerse the wood of Vizaysaar in water overnight and then drink it, your blood sugar levels are expected to fall.
  4. Saptrangi: Saptrangi is biologically known as Salacia oblonga. Just like Vizaysaar, it is a tree whose bark is immersed in water and then drunk by the patient suffering from diabetes. You will know that the water is ready for drinking when it turns brown, which usually happens overnight. It is also being studied in Western herbal schools in addition to Ayurveda nowadays.
  5. Tulsi: Tulsi is a holy plant in Hindu mythology and is known as Ocimum sanctum in biological terms. It is worshiped as a holy plant because it has tremendous medicinal properties including treating many types of cancers, cough, cold, sore throat as well as reducing blood sugar.
  6. Ashwagandha: The medical name for ashwagandha is Withania somnifera. It is another great remedy for diabetes.

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

TMT Test - Why It Is Done In Diabetes?

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
TMT Test - Why It Is Done In Diabetes?

A Stress test is done by making you do exercises like walking on a treadmill or riding a stationary bike during an Electro Cardiogram or ECG. Sometimes, medication to stimulate your heart is used instead of exercise.

The stress test compares the circulation of blood in the heart when you are resting and when you are under optimum physical pressure. There are various types of stress tests, but the most common of them is the Treadmill Stress Test or TMT. 

Why it’s done?

  1. A stress test is a common test for identifying a heart problem like Coronary Artery Disease or CAD in which the major blood vessels that supply your heart with blood, oxygen and nutrients, also called coronary arteries, get blocked, damaged or diseased. 
  2. It’s also used for determining the condition of your heart after a heart attack.
  3. TMT utilizes exercise so it helps to show up extreme shortness in breathing, chest discomfort, dizziness and sudden weakness- all of these indicating an underlying heart condition.
  4. TMT is also used to check the efficiency of the heart medications for diseases like angina and ischemia and to monitor heart function in patients who’ve had an angioplasty or a heart attack earlier.
  5. It is also to identify an abnormal heart rhythm due to exercise.

CAD and Diabetes
People with diabetes are at high risk of coronary artery disease, as it tends to present late, Diabetics also suffer more silent heart muscle problems like Ischemia. This is why TMT is a lifesaver for diabetics as early detection and intervention can save lives.

Preparation

  1. You need to prepare yourself before you take a stress test.
  2. You must not eat or drink anything but water for four hours before the exercise stress test which includes TMT.
  3. You should not drink any beverage with caffeine for twelve hours before the test too.
  4. You must stop all medications for the heart on the day the test is scheduled, unless specifically instructed by your doctor.
  5. If you are a diabetic, you should ask your doctor how much insulin can you inject on the day of the test, and if you are on pills, be aware that the medication is only to be taken after the completion of the stress test.
  6. You should wear comfortable clothes and soft walking shoes or sneakers for the TMT.

How is a TMT done?
A nurse or technician will place electrodes on your chest. These are then attached to wires that carry the electrical activity of your heart to the monitor and recorder of the ECG/EKG machine. These leads record different parts of your heart.

  1. Before you start the test, the EKG will record your heart activity on paper. This is called the Resting EKG.
  2. Initially, the treadmill is switched on at a rather slow ‘warm-up’ speed and gradually both the incline of the treadmill and the speed is increased every three minutes called stages.
  3. During TMT your blood pressure is recorded at the second minute in every stage.
  4. A stress test generally takes up to 90 minutes from beginning to end, but the exercise part of the test takes only 20 minutes.
  5. If you develop any uneasiness, TMT is stopped before the target heart rate is achieved.

How TMT Works
During the TMT, the healthy arteries in the heart dilate more than the blocked ones. This uneven dilation means that more blood is provided to the heart by the healthy arteries as compared to the blocked ones to their designated areas. This lowered blood flow makes the muscles in those areas thirsty for more blood during the TMT, creating symptoms like chest pain, and/or shortness of breath. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Endocrinologist.
