Hi, unfortunately treatment for diabetes is life long. You can control the disease to some extent with some life style modifications like exercising, not eating rice, sugar, sweets etc, taking your medications regularly, monitoring your blood sugar regularly will help you to lead a normal life without worrying about diabetes. Thank you.

How a patient can control his/her diabetes?

M.D. Internal Medicine
Endocrinologist,
How a patient can  control his/her diabetes?
Diabetic person can control his or her diabetes with discipline in timing of meals, medicines and exercises. Life style modification where calories restricted, fat restricted, direct sugar restricted meals with smaller frequent portion sizes of meals with lots of variety making it nutritionally rich and well balanced and minimum 30minutes to 1hr exercise or walk daily reduces diabetic persons requirements for medicines drastically.

Now, you have to wait. We need to know the details of usg report. In early pregnancy if heart beat is not there, we can repeat the scan but in relatively advanced cases, we have to accept the reality.

Hello Sir, according to your fasting blood glucose you are in the Pre-diabetes range. You can bring your blood glucose to Non- diabetic range by following a good healthy diet and exercise. Plan: 1) Eat plenty of vegetables, whole grains, pulses, milk, fruits. Avoid fatty food and sugary stuff. You can treat yourself to these high calorie stuff once a week so that you derive some pleasure in eating. But watch your portion sizes (ie instead of big slice of cake eat a smaller one) 2) exercise at least 30-45 min daily - walking, jogging, cycling etc. Start slow and gradually increase the duration and intensity. 3) By doing 1) and 2) above you can lose weight. Your ideal weight is around 67 kg. This will also help your blood glucose to come under control. 4) Check your fasting and post prandial blood glucose in 3-6 months. Hope this helps you. Thank you.

Hello first thing is to always keep you sugar levels as close to normal as possible. Fasting up to 110 mg and pp closer to 150 mg. Check hba1c and maintain it around 6 per cent. Exercise daily for atleast one h. Avoid deep fried foods and sweets. No mangoes and chikkoos and grapes. Keep your body weight in check. No smoking and very little alcohol.

Mr Meharaj, There is no specific answer for why you have got this condition, as there are many reasons like iodine deficiency, autoimmune disease (Hashimoto's Thyroiditis), Goitre and also genetic factors. But if one has hypothyroidism (high TSH), it has to be treated with supplement of thyroxine tablets. This treatment has to be continued for life time. There are no home remedies, that can help in controlling thyroid deficiency. One thing you can do is avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts and coffee. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, fruits, low fat milk products. Also exercise daily for at least 1 hour a day. These things help additionally. But drug treatment is essential.

Try to conceive after your tsh level normalise. By the time, your periods would also regularise. Abnormalities in thyroid can cause problems with the fetus.

Hello, Looking at your height and weight you have grade 1 obesity with a BMI of 33.75 kgs/M2. This can be a major contributory factor for your future problem. Since you have no diabetes now, it is important for you to cut your weight (ideal weight 55 kgs). By leaving breakfast there is nothing going to happen. Breakfast is said to be the best meal of the day, as keeps ones energy level high through the day. Thanks.

Drink mint tea or make a paste of green mint with some simple spices and eat during meals. Eat vegetables such as bitter gourd and drumsticks to control obesity. Take a tablespoon of honey daily with warm water. It is an excellent home remedy for obesity Take one teaspoonful of fresh honey and mix with a half of lime juice in a glass of lukewarm water. Take several times a day at regular intervals. You can fast on this drink during the day without the loss of energy. Highly effective in obesity. Join aerobics..walk daily.

Well in any case the news is not good. PP in all labs is above the limit. Fasting on average is also high. This is classical presentation of Increase level of sugar in blood, aka- Diabetes Mellitus. You shall see a qualified physician around and start your medications at the earliest. The difference is lab reports also varies depending upon what food you had during that same week. Please start the medicine as early as possible. There is nothing to be afraid you will have to take medicine and a simple per day is nothing to have a normal life. Rest your doctor will advise you on examination. You can also follow: 1. Walk for 30 -40 min in morning and evening. 2. Have low quantities of sugar, rice, potato and anything sweet. 3. Take small meals avoid over eating. 4. Try to keep yourself occupied in some work or other, anything of your choice. 5. Have lots of salads comprising of stuffs advised by your doctor.
