This shows that you are diabetic and need management. First of all avoid high sugar foods, consume fiber rich food. Do exercise 40 to 50 minutes daily. Recheck your sugar after 1 month. If it is still high then you need medicines.

I have hypothyroidism, will I be able to lose weight. And is herbal life products good for weight loss?
Take diet for hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, Avoid few foods in hypothroidism i.e. caffeine products tea,coffee, tabcco, alcohol / wine , kale, broccoli, spinach, mustard green, cabbage, turnip, millet, cassava, linseeds, pine nuts, soy products as soy milk, tofu, soybeans, soy souce, also avoid stress. Take Some Relax during work. Proper follow up you can feel better and reduce weight also.

Almond milk is also a great way to put on some pounds. Boil milk with almonds, dried figs and dates. Strain the milk and consume it warm every single day for about a month. Do not throw away the boiled almonds, figs and dates. Munch on them to get all the nutrition.

I am 45 yrs. Old suffering from uncontrolled diabetes mellitus since 10yrs. Give me tips to keep controlled my sugar.

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
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 more than 2-3 hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Fruits should be had as a mid meal. 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.

Increase in urinary frequency may be due to diabetes mellitus, diabetes insipidus, urinary tract infections, bladder stones or mass etc. Get an usg kubp done to exclude cystitis (bladder infection) or bladder stone. If there is no such symptoms present like burning in urine, fasting blood sugar and post prandial blood sugar should be checked to exclude diabetes if not done recently. Serum sodium, 24hr urine volume and osmolality is checked for excluding diabetes insipidus. Also avoid sweetened drinks, alcohol and excess amount of coffe or tea intake. Water intake should be restricted to 3-4 litres per day. Also inform about any history of trauma or neurological diseases in past. They may cause overactive bladder. Then according to reports furthur treatment can be done.

Dear lybrate-user, many people with type I or type ii diabetes, who have meticulously followed the doctor's instructions about medication, lifestyle, food and exercise and periodic medical check-up have a satisfying sexual lives. Those who have not been so disciplined are likely to face sexual problems early, because" uncontrolled or inadequately controlled" diabetes would lead in the long run to neurogenic erectile dysfunction. So remember to keep diabetes under control, not just for the sake of sexual well-being, but for the general health and well-being too, which is far more important. 02. Yes, the children of type I diabetics have chances of inheriting it from parents. According to Dr. Warram, if the father is under 25 when diagnosed of type I diabetes, the chances of his children inheriting it are about 1 in 10 (10%). If the mother is diabetic at about the same age, the chances are 1 in 25 (4%).

Mr. First and foremost is to take appropriate drugs for controlling blood sugar levels. Ideally fasting should be nearer 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg, hba1c%<7. In addition diet control and exercise are also equally important to help better control of blood sugar. The diet has to be individualised, looking at a number of aspects like sugar levels, drugs, daily extent of exercise present dietary pattern. Soto suggest a diet I need to know above details. In the mean time remember to avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks, high fat milk products and alcohol. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits about 100 g a day.

I am 26 years old female I have an thyroid. What should I do to get out of an thyroid and I am to fat. What should I eat or what I do to get relief from thyroid?

MD, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Hello, Specialised ayurvedic medicine are there for complete management of thyroid. It includes correction of weight, stopping hair fall and alleviating other symptoms such as weakness, lethargy, increased sleep, infertility etc. This is how this treatment minimizes dependence on artificial hormones and stimulates thyroid gland to produce it's own natural hormone. At the same time, this treatment increases metabolic rate thereby helping maintain good weight over long term. Tell your age, height, weight and other symptoms if any. This information is vital so as to arrive at perfect prescription.
