Why are sugars added to foods? Are sugars safe to eat? How does the body use sugars?

Why are sugars added to foods? Are sugars safe to eat? How does the body use sugars?
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. All starchy food that we eat like rice, chapati, roti (jowar or bajra or makai), other cereals like millets, potato, beet root, sweet potato and sugar as well as jaggery get converted to glucose after digestion. So whether one takes a roti or rice or sugar everything is converted to glucose and absorbed. Sugar is added or eaten because people like sweet taste. Thanks.

How Homeopathy Helps Manage Thyroid Problems?

MD - Homeopathy

How Homeopathy Helps Manage Thyroid Problems?

It is extremely remarkable to note how homeopathic treatments have gained immense acceptance and recognition in the field of modern-day treatment procedures, offering the most effective and safe medication options. A number of thyroid problems can, in fact, be alleviated with the help of homeopathic remedies, also saving you the trouble of encountering unwanted and unforeseen side effects of the normal prescription drugs. The most common problems pertaining to the thyroid gland are possibly hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. Both the conditions can be cured with utmost efficacy when the right drugs are prescribed.

Hypothyroidism And Homeopathy

Hypothyroidism is the medical condition wherein the thyroid gland underperforms and produces insufficient amount of hormones required for the normal functioning of the body. The most effective homeopathic remedies for hypothyroidism are:

  1. Nux Vomica: This remedy is usually recommended to those patients who suffer from extreme temperament and ones who feel chilly often without any particular reason. Obstinate constipation in the patients is also curbed by this medicine. Women with prolonged periods are also prescribed Nux Vomica to decrease the incidence of period related problems.
  2. Lycopodium Clavatum: Patients of hypothyroidism who complain of gastric troubles are the ones who usually opt for Lycopodium Clavatum. Excessive hair fall as a result of hypothyroidism can also be cured with it.
  3. Calcera Carbonica: It is usually ranked as the best medicine for treating hypothyroidism, especially in patients who suffer from cold feet, extreme fatigue, and bowel problems.

Hyperthyroidism And Homeopathy

A condition wherein the thyroid gland tends to be overactive and produces more than the requisite level of hormones is usually referred to as a classic case of hyperthyroidism. Homeopathic treatments for this abnormality aim at treating the root causes to achieve best results:

  1. Lachesis Mutus: Hyperthyroidism patients who persistently complain of rising body heat are prescribed this. It also lessens the problems of fatigue and queasiness.
  2. Iodium: Patients who lose their weight quickly despite maintaining a healthy diet are prescribed doses of Iodium. Anxiousness and fatigue are also cured along with other problems.
  3. Conium Maculatum: Patients who suffer from acute depression and refuse to participate in day-to-day activities are generally given this. Trembling and profuse perspiration are treated effectively with the help of Conium Maculatum. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Homeopath.

lybrate-user, Fasting 189 mg is high. Ideally when in control blood glucose should be: FBG:closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. Good blood glucose control depends on - appropriate drug & dose selection, pluse daily regular exercise, weight control and exact quantity of food intake. A doctor can only guide, but it is the patient who has to follow every single instruction meticulously. In your case it is necessary to first target the fasting glucose level and bring it closer to 100 mg, by adjusting night time insulin dosage. Then we will have to look at PP & pre lunch and pre dinner levels. Plus a close look has to be given to diet and extent of exercise. Thanks.

IF your TYPE 2 DM is noninsulin dependent type DM and having 15 years DM instead of tablet still taking insulin you need to check C-peptide is measured to tell the difference between insulin the body produces and insulin injects into bodyis proper or wrong. Type 2 diabetes C-peptide level measured to see if their body is still producing any insulin you need to decrease weight cholestrol bp & routine check up of heart kidney & your DM & other test require always check sugar three times day normal at home never stop taking insulin& medicine until doctor advice this may lead to emergency conditio develop.

Hi, 1) it is not only the quality of food but the quantity is important too. If you feel you are consuming large quantity of food then reduce the amount consumed. Eat lot of vegetables - they bulk you up and have negligible calories, thus you won't be consuming more of carbs or fats which are the foods that cause weight gain. 2) Main culprit in your case I think is because of your sitting job. Get up and walk around the office every hour. Use the stairs as much as possible instead of lift. Walk from bus stand to office or park your vehicle at a distance and walk to your office. 3) To lose weight you need to be in energy deficit, that means the calories burned through exercise and physical activity should be more than calories eaten. 4) See a good dietician who can provide you a diet chart and follow it strictly. All the best. Thank you.
