Hye, 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 - the sugar levels will fluctuate depending on what you ate or did not eat, stress levels and activity levels. You have to try and manage a balanced carb intake. Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. You have to eat 3 main and 3 mid meals. Your diet must include whole grains, seasonal fruits, vegetables, small amounts of nuts and dairy and pulses or dals or lean meats like chicken or fish and egg. Starchy vegetables need to be planned into the diet. 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. Avoid exercise if sugar levels are above 250 mg/dl. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

To reduce the uric acid levels in blood, you may need to limit intake of alcohol, sugary foods and reduce purine rich foods like meat, poultry, seafood and pulses. Vegetables such as cauliflower , asparagus, spinach, peas and mushroom also contain a lot of purines. increase fibre content in diet like oats, etc drink lot of water

For pregnancy to take place you require a normal ovulation ,regular cycles and normal sperm function of the male partner I hope all that has been tested Your Thyroid function as per the reports should not interfere in ovulation The TSH is low you should reduce the dose of Thyroxine in consultation with your physician / Endocrinologist.

I am 23 year old female suffering from hypothyroidism. These days my my belly became too large and also facing stomach problem like to go for washroom 4 to 5 times and feeling heavy stomach after taking food. And I am taking my medicine regularly in empty stomach. What to do to reduce it ?

MBBS, MD Obs & Gynae, FNB Reproductive Medicine
Gynaecologist, Jalandhar
if thyroid levels are normal after treatment weight gain is usually not because of it. may be due to lack of exercise and faulty diet habits. going to washroom again and again is a sign of urine infection for which u need tests of urine and treatment.

High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. Garlic,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines . give her thyroxine 25 mcg.

Infertility in Men

MD - General Medicine
Sexologist, Delhi

About 10 percent of couples of reproductive age in the United States will have difficulty conceiving. Approximately 30 percent of cases are due to problems in man, another 30 percent due to problems in women and the remainder is unexplained causes or multiple factors involving both partners. If you had sex regularly and without using any birth control for over a year (or six months if you're over 35) without conceiving, see your doctor. Almost 90 percent of couples with infertility problems can successfully undergo fertility treatment. Read about common causes of infertility, possible treatments and how many couples become pregnant after treatment. Note that the success rates vary, since a couple can have multiple problems. 1. Obstructions A small percentage of men has a blockage in their ejaculatory duct that prevents sperm from entering the ejaculation fluid. If the vas deferens or epididymis vessels become clogged or damaged, possibly your sperm can not reach the egg of your partner. The cause of the obstruction could be an infection, injury, birth defects or a vasectomy. Possible symptoms: None. Possible solutions: surgery to repair an obstruction or reverse the vasectomy. Success rate: Depending on the problem and the type of surgery is performed about 50 to 90 percent of men have more sperm in their semen after surgery. About 20 to 65 percent of couples can conceive either through sexual intercourse or by in vitro fertilization or intracytoplasmic sperm injection. 2. Varicocele The varicocele (dilated veins, similar to varicose veins in the scrotum) increases the temperature of the testicles, which can affect sperm production. Possible symptoms: None (but can detect the problem through a physical examination). Possible solutions: surgery to repair the varicocele. Success rate: Up to 43 percent of men impregnate their partner within one year after surgery and to 69 percent do so within two years. 3. Irregular sperm If you have few sperm or none, if motility (ability to move) is low or abnormally shaped, possibly they are unable to fertilize the eggs of your partner. Possible symptoms: None. Possible solutions: fertility drugs; artificial insemination with donor sperm or with your own sperm if the quantity, shape and motility not have excessive anomaly; or intracytoplasmic sperm injection. Success rate: When fertility drugs that aim to increase egg production are combined with artificial insemination, the success rate is between 8 and 17 percent per cycle. With ICSI, the success rate is about 30 percent per cycle. 4. Sperm allergy Your body may develop antibodies that kill your own sperm, most of the time after a vasectomy, testicular torsion (where the testicle twists inside the scrotum), infection or trauma. Possible symptoms: None. Possible solutions: artificial insemination, assisted reproduction or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (drugs with corticosteroids such as prednisone are sometimes used to inhibit sperm antibodies but many doctors do not recommend them because of their side effects). Success rate: When fertility drugs that aim to increase egg production are combined with artificial insemination, the success rate is between 8 and 17 percent per cycle. With ICSI, the success rate is around 30 percent per cycle. 5. Unexplained fertility problems Your doctor may diagnose you a 'problem unexplained fertility' when you cannot clearly state the cause of your problem conceiving. Some experts believe that environmental toxins may be factors that contribute to the disorder but no confirmed no direct association between fertility and these possible problems. Possible symptoms: None. Possible solutions: fertility drugs combined with artificial insemination or assisted reproductive techniques such as in-vitro fertilization. Success rate: When fertility drugs that aim to increase egg production are combined with artificial insemination, the success rate is between 8 and 17 percent per cycle. With in vitro fertilization, about 20 to 40 percent of pregnancies end in cycles. After three years of treatment, the probability that a couple will conceive decreases by about 20 to 25 percent each year. 6. Combination fertility problems It is said that a couple has fertility problems 'combined' when both the man and the woman have a fertility problem. Possible Symptoms: Symptoms vary, depending on causes Possible Solutions: Treatments vary, depending on causes Success Rate: The percentages vary, depending on causes The objectives of the diagnostic evaluation, either exhaustive or limited, are: Determine the medical and psychological causes. Assess the severity and degree of responsibility for it. Establishing a therapeutic strategy that supports the specific diagnosis and meets the expectations of the patient and his partner.

DM - Endocrinology

Hi if your sugar are well controlled you can have as normal pregnancy as anyone else. Try to keep your prepregnancy hba1c near 6 to 6.5 without going much into hypoglycemia for second q also answer is that chanc3s become minimal if you well control your blood sugar.

Hello, please follow the doctor prescribed medicine. Which controls the diabetics and will not allow you increase. But along with medication, you need to concentrate on food also. Make sure your food must have high protein, fiber and omega-3 nutrition. Its good to have more protein rather than carbohydrates, which converts into glucose and may have a chance to increase the diabetes. What we suggest is the nutrigemoic protein, who certified, with 9 essential amino acids. This will help you cure your diabetics in a year time. But you will definitely have a result, if you can use protein with vitamins and minerals, fiber and omega-3 supplements, also add b complex for feets.

long hrs of fasting reduces sugar in the blood causing those symptoms of hypoglycemia . Take low glycemic index food every 5 to 6 hrs which has slow carbogydrate release . high glycemic index food can be taken when hypoglycemia occurs .

If a person has developed diabetes, it is better to observe certain precautions in terms of food intake. All those items containing high sugar like sweets, direct sugar are to be avoided. As regards the fruits mangoes, bananas, chikkoos, grapes, custard apples (sitaphal) and jack fruit (phanas) are to be avoided. Mangoes are very sweet, contain a lot of sugar, one can have a slice or two if sugar control is excellent. Any item rich in sugar content (sucrose) is converted to glucose in one step in the gut and hence raises the blood sugar rapidly. Other fruits have comparatively lesser sugar, hence can be eaten in moderate quantity.
