Hi With a good control of diabetes I suggest you take 2-3 fresh dates per day and not khajoor (dry dates) as it has more carbohydrates and sugar.

Hi I am 21 year old and I am suffering from thyroid. In this case what can I do? Because my wait also lost.

The answer is homoeopathy. I do not force you for it but I will advise you to give it a try so as to get rid of life long medicines and that too without side effects. Although you may find it difficult to take regular doses of homoeo medicines daily as compared to one tablet of allopathic medicine that you are taking but the end with homoeopathic medicines is always fruitful and moreover you will be relieved of life long medicines and will be fully treated in 2-3 years depending upon your thyroid levels and amount of effort that you are putting in, if you get the right treatment in the hands of a right homoeo doctor----------so choice is yours whether to go with life long homoeopathic medicines and its side effects or homoeopathic medicines for 2-3 years without any side effects------------but we will discuss the above debate afterwards but first of all show me your blood reports depicting hyperthyroidism--------------

My sugar level is getting more than normal. What I have to stop eating?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
Pediatrician,
My sugar level is getting more than normal. What I have to stop eating?
You stop simple sugars like sugar, sweets ans candies. If you tell your fbs, 2hr ppbs and hba1c, I can guide you better, ask personally. Diabetes affects all organs in the body? eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, in fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient and doctor should be n constant touch for regular follow up and advice. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance.

Am diabetic and mother of a 4 month old baby. please suggest me a diet chart. I urgently need it.
Dear lybrate-user, a breastfeeding mother with diabetes is a special situation and it'll be prudent if you visit a diet specialist who'll see your body profile and give you appropriate diet. In general avoid high calories food like sweets, fats etc. Also remember that for sugar control in pregnancy and breastfeeding period only insulin is allowed. Regards.

It is really due to masturbation. Can be due to hyperthyroid. Use antidandruf shampoo daily coupled with oiling at bed time. Avoid junk food and fried food. Do pranayam daily for ten minutes. Take tablet keralego men daily for six months.

I am a 64 year old male. Am suffering from hypo thyroid and high blood pressure. Both are under control with normal medication. The latest problem is excessive sleep. I feel sleepy even after 10 hours of sleep. In fact I am sleepy the moment I wake up. The eyelids are heavy and I keep thinking when will I lie down again. Is it some kind of deficiency?

Dear, can you upload your latest tsh levels and how much thyroxine are you taking? I still think that it would be due to improper control of hypothyroidism.

Dear lybrate-user need to know some basics. How is your status of sugar. If its fluctuating/ you suffering from hypoglycemia in between then fasting not good for u.if you r perfectly fine then you must fast once a month in which you shud take only warm water and rice flakes. This type of Langhan is very good for diabetics. please consult me in person on Lybrate for details.

I am diabetic since August last year and taking some ayurveda pills since then. I am talking half litre milk everyday. Is it good or bad? If good should I increase intake? If bad what's substitute for it?

Mr. Lybrate-user, if you have confirmed diabetes then appropriate treatment with anti diabetes drugs is needed. If diabetes is in control then fasting sugar should be closer 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg & hba1c should be <6.8%. If these levels are not achieved then you are inviting severe long term complications of diabetes. Taking milk is good but sugar control and overall diet restrictions must be adhered tp.

My mother is a working lady and she has been diagnosed with diabetes lately. However her sugar levels are normal now and she is on medication but her legs pain a lot. She is an active lady and can't avoid work so it becomes very difficult for her to cope with this. Could you please suggest the treatment.

Her leg pain may be due to peripheral neuritis which is common in diabetics. She can take methylcobalamine injections (a course of five injections - im oncea week.

Hi. My mother is diabetic and she takes insulin. Doctor has mentioned that her night dinner gets heavy and so morning sugar level is high. Can you please suggest food options. What all kinds of corn flakes and oats brand a can a diabetic patient eat.

Sorry for this, but dinner does not have a significant role in the next morning's fasting glucose levels. Give me the following details: type, dose, frequency & timing of the insulin she takes fbs, 2 hour ppbs & hba1c levels duration of diabetes how long she sleeps & quality of sleep.
