Diabetes refers to a medical condition where the glucose level in your blood increases. It usually happens if there is an excess amount of glucose in your body and your body is unable to utilize it efficiently. In this condition your pancreas either stops producing insulin or fails to produce the requisite amount and hence prevents glucose from entering the cells of your body.
This in turn affects your blood glucose level. Millions of people around the globe are affected by diabetes irrespective of their gender or age. For most people diabetes is generally a lifelong medical condition and can affect your health seriously if it gets severe.
There are many stages and types of diabetes, such as Type 1 diabetes, Type 2 diabetes, Gestational diabetes, Pre-diabetes, Diabetes Mellitus and Diabetes Insipidus. Not all diabetes can be prevented but some of the above mentioned ones can be prevented with proper care. Below mentioned are eight tips to prevent diabetes
1. Eating the right portion: The primary key for preventing diabetes is choosing the right amount of food. Eating the right portions can help you to stay away from diabetes. Consider seeking advice from a nutritionist or dietician for knowing the exact portion size you should eat according to your age.
2. Exercise on a regular basis: Exercising regularly for at least half an hour a day can help you to prevent diabetes. You may consider walking or running exercises.
3. Choose the right food: Opt for whole grains as this can help you to maintain your blood sugar level and keep diabetes at bay. Also, try and avoid red meat as it contains high levels of iron which can affect insulin production and increase your chances of developing diabetes.
4. Get rid of obesity: If your BMI is more than thirty then you are suffering from obesity. Obesity increases your chances of developing diabetes. So in order to prevent diabetes you should work at maintaining a balanced weight.
5. Avoid carbonated drinks: Carbonated drinks contain high levels of sugar. This can increase your chances of developing diabetes. So you should try and avoid drinks like colas.
Following the above mentioned tips can help you to avert diabetes.

I had a general blood test to check if my lipids etc are in order. The report came back with very High Blood Glucose result. Fasting Blood Sugar was 226 and PP was 322. This test was followed by another BS test in a different lab to recheck the results. Fasting BS was 210 and PP was 344. HbA1C was 9.4%. My family physician advised that I should consult with a diabetologist about this. The diabetologist prescribed Galvus Met 50/850 and Diamicron XR 30 once a day for 1 week and then twice a day each after 1 week. After 18 days of this medication the doctor had asked for a recheck of BS, which was at 100 Fasting BS and 125 PP BS. Post the report, my diabetologist has advised that I continue the medication for another 3 weeks after which the BS test is to be done again. My query is : Are there any ayurvedic alternatives that I can safely take in order to slowly wean off allopathic medicine? Can my condition be reversed with proper diet, exercise, ayurveda?

I am 45 years old having thyroid problem weighing 75 kg. Too much of efforts the weight is not reducing. Taking 112 mg electroxin tab. Please tell me how to boost metabolism, reduce hair fall, knee pain.?
I had thyroid problem 15-17 years back and I started taking eltroxin 100 mcg. After some 2 years the doctor advised me to take 50 mcg and for the past 10-13 years ive been taking only 50 mcg. There was no change in my thyroid level. Now a year back I started homeopathy treatment for psoriasis. When I tested my thyroid there was slight increase and I was advised to take 75 mcg. Now after a year of homeo my thyroid level is 7.8. Now please tell me whether I should continue with 75 mcg or should I increase the dose. Actually one doctor says to continue with the same 75 mcg but another doctor says it should be increased. I thought an endocrinologist may be able to diagnose properly. Also pl let me know whether this increase would be due to the homeo treatment.

A dosage of 200 mcg per day has been found to reduce thyroid antibodies in clinical trials, Selenium cut the antibodies in half within three months....Curious about the science behind it? Read on
Selenium plays a very important role in Thyroid function:
1.Helps to convert the inactive T4 to the biologically active T3
2.Protecting Thyroid cells from oxidative damage .
Selenium deficiency, causes more antibodies to produce resulting in the failure to recognize self from non-self. This is how autoimmunity develops. Thus, selenium deficiency has also been recognized as a risk factor for Hashimoto’s.
Selenium deficiency may also occur in abdominal disease such as celiac disease and other inflammatory bowel disorders due to the malabsorption from damage to the small intestine and Crohn’s disease or surgical removal of the stomach.
Studies have proposed that supplemental selenium could alleviate toxic effect of excessive iodine intake on the thyroid.
Selenium intake protects against Thyroid Autoimmunity by acting as an Antioxidant, and preventing autoimmunity. Furthermore, ultrasounds of the thyroid following selenium supplementation showed reduced lesions in the thyroid gland.
While the RDA of selenium is 200 mcg daily, for TPO antibody reduction,.
Dr.Tanvi recommends taking the pure encapsulations brand of selenium on an empty stomach with vitamin E, which works in synergy with selenium, to ensure proper absorption. (Please note, many Vitamin E brands are made from soy oil, which can be detrimental to thyroid health, so use the one which is derived from sunflower oil ).
While it may be tempting to increase selenium intake by increasing consumption of selenium-rich foods such as Brazil nuts, it is important to realize that over consumption can lead selenium toxicity. Symptoms include GI disturbances, hair loss, changes in hair and nails, peripheral neuropathy, fatigue, irritability, garlic-smelling breath, and a jaundice-like yellow tint to the skin.
The food we eat contains energy which is stored as glucose in the body. This glucose is then converted into back into energy with the help of a hormone called insulin. A lack of insulin in the body or an inability to use the insulin is known as diabetes. There are two types of diabetes mellitus; type 1 and type 2. These diseases cannot be cured but with medication, correct nutrition and weight management, they can be controlled so as to not affect your quality of life.
Type 1 diabetes is a lifelong condition and usually, begins in childhood. This is an autoimmune condition and makes the pancreas stop producing insulin. Some probable causes of type 1 diabetes are:
Family history of diabetes
Other infections and diseases that can affect the pancreas.
Between the two, type 2 diabetes is more common. Type 2 diabetes is also known as insulin resistance and can affect a person at any stage in life. However, it is more common amongst men and women above the age of 45. Ethnicity also plays an important role here with African Americans, Latino Americans, Asian Americans and Hispanic people being more vulnerable to this disease. In this case, the body does produce insulin but either this amount is insufficient or the body is resistant to the insulin. Some factors that can trigger this condition are:
Family history of diabetes
Low levels of good cholesterol and high levels of triglycerides
Presence of cells that are resistant to insulin
Prediabetes or glucose intolerance
The most common symptoms of type 1 and type 2 diabetes are:
Excessive thirst and increased appetite
Wounds that are slow to heal
Another common type of diabetes is known as gestational diabetes Gestational diabetes affects pregnant women. It is caused by the over or under production of insulin by the placenta. Gestational diabetes can affect the health and growth of the baby is not treated in time. This condition usually resolves itself after the baby is delivered but it can put the mother at an increased risk of suffering from type 2 diabetes. Some factors that can trigger this condition are:
