My father is suffered by diabetes
He wants to know the fruits to eat and the fruits to avoid.
Most fruits have a low glycemic index (gi) because of their fructose and fiber content. Melons and pineapple have medium gi values as do some dried fruits such as dates, raisins, and sweetened cranberries. So avoid all these and eat all other fruits.

Hi If you have hypothyroidism, then treatment with thyroxine tablets in appropriate dosage is the only option available, that too for lifetime. There is no other treatment. Thanks.

I am 50 years, and weight is 85 kgs and my sugar levels are post lunch 269 to get under control what is the best way?
Hello, blood sugar level of 289 mg pp is fairly high. It can be brought under control by following ways: 1) strict diet control, taking exact calories based on ideal body weight, 2) exercising regularly more than 1 hour a day and 3) appropriate medications. Plus it appears you are over weight (85 kgs), hence weight reduction itself will help in reducing blood sugar. Present medications may not adequate or need adjustment in dosing. Similarly other two aspects like diet and exercise need to be seriously looked at.

There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed to protect against future flares or prevent gout or uric acid problems from occurring in the first instance: maintain a high fluid intake (2-4 liters a day) avoid alcohol maintain a healthy body weight eat a balanced diet limit fish, meat and poultry intake. If attempting to lose weight, avoid low-carbohydrate diets. If carbohydrate intake is insufficient, the body is unable to burn its own fat properly, releasing substances called ketones into the bloodstream. This results in a condition called ketosis that can increase the level of uric acid in the blood. It is most important to avoid foods that are high in purines, to ensure that the levels of uric acid in the blood do not get too high. Here is a list of high-purine foods to be wary of: beef kidneys brains dried beans and peas liver mackerel mushrooms lose some weight by walking or other exercise, avoid meats and get always be on a prescribed diet as prescribed by a registered dietitian. I am a registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator and a doctor, consult privately for detailed treatment plans using diet and medications.

Lybrate-user, if all other things are normal, and tsh levels are higher as in your case, conception may not occur. Tsh level has to be around 2 milli units/l before conception, plus during all three trimesters of pregnancy: 1st trimester 0.1 to 2 milli units/l, 2nd 0.3 to 3 milli units, 3rd 0.3 to 3.5 milli units/l. So presently if you are not on treatment with thyroxine you may have to start that so the tsh levels are brought below 2 milli units/l.

Have courage. Modern medical science has made great strides in management of diabetes. There is no known scientific cure as on today. But with proper diet as advised by treating doctor, daily light exercise like walking, swimming sports etc and proper medication as advised followed by repeated monitoring, regular review by your doctor will help in good control this way you can avoid or postpone the usual complications of diabetes. Keep increasing your health education and knowledge about diabetes by all possible means. Keep away from short cuts and unscientific remedies. Best wishes.

What should be the diet for a diabetic patient 60 yes female. Can she take rice in lunch and dinner?
Diabetes is a disease of carbohydrates metabolism. So one has to be very cautious in eating carbohydrate diet. Rice elevates blood sugar quickly. Hence plain rise is not advisable. But if it is made of brown rice with fibres like vegetables or split green lentils, then it is allowed in medium proportions. Basically she has to avoid white rice, potatoes, fried food and sweets.

My mother 's Thyroid ultra sensitive tsh level is 28.33, she is 58 year old, please suggest me is this very emergency case? And what should I do in such case.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, TSH level of 28.23 mU/L, shows she has hypothyroidism. This needs to be treated with thyroxine tablets. Because her thyroid gland is not producing the hormone in her body. Unless immediate supplementation started, and adequate hormone is given, she may have serious consequences because of deficiency. From that point of view it is urgent. If not treated there may be weight gain, slow heart rate, intolerance to cold, joint and muscle pains, mood swings, swelling of face and lower limbs, anxiety, depression, dry skin, dry hair and hair fall etc. Hence it is better to start the treatment right away. TSH level should be brought down to 3 to 4 mU/L, to be free from all symptoms. Thanks.
