I am 35 years old I am suffering from obesity and thyroid please give a good suggestions.
Lunch ? Salad of raw vegetables such as carrot, beet, cucumber, cabbage, tomatoes. In case you do not digest raw vegetables, either steam or boil them. Whole grain bread or whole wheat chapattis (Indian recipe) and a glass of buttermilk. It will be good to add some roasted cumin seeds, green coriander leaves, a little salt and some grated ginger in the butter milk.For further assistance and complete diet plan and treatment you can consult me privately.

Healthy tips for diabetics 1. Eat food at fixed hours. 2. Do not eat immediately after a workout. 3. Do not overeat. 4. If you are on insulin, make sure you have three proper meals with light snacks in between. 5. Do not eat fast; masticate and munch your food well before you swallow. 6. Drink a lot of water that will help flush the toxins off your system. 7. Make sure the gaps between your meals are short. 8. Avoid fried foods and sweetmeats. 9. Include fresh vegetable salad in every meal. 10. Have at least 20 to 25 grams of raw onion daily. These are general guidelines for you. Feel free to consult me for detailed diet chart.

If your fasting levels are above 126mg% means you have confirmed diabetes. It is advisable to maintain random below 140% and hba1c below 6.4% that is pre diabetic range.

Dear, Can feel your anxiety about your health. Your insulin dose needs to be increased with help of treating Dr. This isn't due to resistance to insulin that you've been taking. If you use glucose ter to monitor your blood glucose, it'll be very easy to adjust the dose of insulin. Insulin dose is always changing based on your requirements.

As for as your mother is concerned she needs to see a diabetologist so that dietary advice and appropriate medicines can be prescribed. As far your wife is concerned please ensure that she has a well balanced diet high in proteins like fish, chicken, pulses and keeps the wound site clean and dry.

You are not getting enough thyronorm and that is why your tsh is elevated. Please increase your thyronorm dose to 75 microgram. Also take it first thing in am and do not eat for 1/2 hour after taking the medicine. Have your tsh checked in 6 weeks. This should take care of most of your symptoms. Let us see how you do on this.

Hello, Diabetes means high blood sugar. So if you mother is having low blood sugar, that means she has been started on some oral tablets or insulin that could be reducing the blood sugar to quite low levels. Also vomitings and lack of appetite can be due to medication that has been started. Please consult your diabetologist so that he can alter the medication dose. Hope this has helped you Thank you.

Though your sugar can be controlled with additionof more oral drugs but best option is to start insulin injections for short period of 8-12weeks to control symptoms and sugar and later try to revert to oral drugs.
