People who spend more time standing up than sitting down can reduce their risk of diabetes and heart disease

People who spend more time standing up than sitting down can reduce their risk of diabetes and heart disease
People who spend more time standing up than sitting down can reduce their risk of diabetes and heart disease.

Following are the observations of an Australian study in people who replaced two hours of sitting time per day with standing
1. Reductions in fasting blood sugar levels
2. Reduction in bad cholesterol (ldl)
3. Increase in good cholesterol (hdl)
4.11% reduction in body mass index (bmi) and
5. 7. 5cm average decrease in waist circumference (pant size)

Maintaining a healthy bmi is important as overweight or obesity increases the risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease. People who spend long periods of time sitting down have been found to have higher rates of diabetes and heart disease.

To conclude standing should be encouraged in the workplace with methods like sit-stand desks

The findings of this study were published in the european heart journal.

Thanks!

General Physician,
I don't think it is correct to stop medicine which you are taking. What are the conditions you have? clear discussion is necessary to help you. Is your periods regular and normal in amount? any increase in weight? sleep? appetite? ask privately.

In last year my thyroid level has increased upto 10 points I want to control my thyroid level by natural ways, please help.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Meerji, If your TSH level has above 10milli unit/ ml then you have to start the treatment with thyroxine tablets, there is "no natural way" to control raised TSH level. If you do not want to start treatment with thyroxine, then you will suffer with consequences of hypothyroidism. I leave it to your judgement.

High blood sugar level is really harmful. You should take proper medication, restricted diet and regular exercises. If it is not controlled by allopathic medicines it is better to switch over to insulin or ayurvedic medicines in support.

I am a 35 year old male and suffering from Diabetes my HB a1c level is around 9 kindly help.
Hi, thanks for the query. 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 long hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Following are the tips to prevent onset/or control diabetes 1-Losing Extra Weight:-The most significant thing which can make a big difference to your health is to lose your extra weight. This will not only lower your blood pressure but also helps lowering your cholesterol too.

This will considerably improve your metabolic activity and helps reducing your weight. 3- Split your meals and eating in moderate amount:-Splitting your meals into 3-4 times per day (including snacks)and eating in fair and consistent amount , improves your metabolic rate as the food u take is not concentrated at one time. 4- No long Gaps and skipping of meals:-There should be no long gaps between meals. Never miss out breakfast. 5- No overeating:-Never eat in a bulk on one time .Try to have moderate amount of food each time u eat. It will help maintain your blood sugar at a healthy level and won’t let it to fluctuate.

Avoid heavy exercise. Do not eat right away after a workout . 7-constant and regular timings for medication 8-Avoid fried foods and meat: Limit fats and sweets. Rather choose a variety of foods including whole grains, fresh vegetables, salads, fruits, low fat dairy products. 9- Take high-fibre and complex carbohydrates:-like oats as they are easily broken down to basic sugars. Add whole grain foods in your diet. Avoid carbohydrates like white bread, pasta, pizza , candies, and snacks .Instead include high-fiber carbohydrates like wheat bran, flaxseed and methi seeds to your wheat flour. This will increase fibre in your diet. 10-Drink enough fluids:-Keep your body well hydrated. Drink a lot of water that will help flush the toxins off your system. 11.Fresh vegetables and fruits:- gives essential benefits as these contain a lot of vital minerals as well as nutrients .Include sprouts in the diet as they are easily digestible and a rich source of nutrients. 12- Avoid excess salt:-in form of pickles/papads etc. 1 tsp(5 gm)is sufficient for a healthy hypertensive individual. 13-Avoid alcohol consumption:-Alcohols such as beer and wine contains large amount of calories. choose sugar-free drink. 14- dairy products :-Dairy products are high on fat content such as cheese, curd, milk etc. So instead consume skimmed milk products , low fat cheese, yogurt (curd) etc. Do not have more than two cups of tea or coffee every day. Try green tea instead.

Diabetes is a slow killing diseases. It cannot be felt many times in initial days. You need to get your sugar tested at least once or twice in a year haphazardly, so this will be safer rather than waiting for some disease to happen. Still if you have queries, please let me know. Take care :)

Cause of pain is possible infection and inflammation. While doing sex, friction is not tolerable. For diabetics, infection should be prevented at any cost because healing takes much more time. Control diabetes and infection. Pain will go away as papules subside.

If there are 2-3 patients in home or if someone is on Insulin then only buy glucometer but if your sugar is under control then checking it in lab once a 2mths is good for you instead of frequently n unnecessarily checking on glucometer. Regards.

One of my friend is suffering from thyroid. What should she do to cure it. Her age is 50.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr K D, If you are referring to hypothyroidism, then she has to be treated with thyroxine tablets. Dose will depend on TSH levels and body weight. Plus should exercise regularly for 1 hour a day so as to maintain near normal weight. After starting the treatment periodically tsh levels should be checked in 6 to 8 weeks to see if any change in dosage is needed.

Mr Vishwanathan, She does not have hypothyroidism now. She may be having subclinical hypothyroidism. There is no need for any treatment now. She should exercise regularly to maintain normal weight, avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Use whole grain flour for making roti and chapati. Consume good deal of green leafy vegetables and fruits. Avoid high fat foods. This should help her. Get TSH levels checked after 6 months.
