What diet should I take to increase hemoglobin in blood and reduce diabetes?

PGDD, RD
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
What diet should I take to increase hemoglobin in blood and reduce diabetes?
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 - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. 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. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Including seasonal fruits and vegetables nuts in your diet to improve blood health. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Thyroid hormones are considered master hormones responsible for multiple functions in our body and hence its imbalance can cause symptoms right from indigestion, constipation, weight gain, hairfall, abnormal hair growth, period problems, pcod, mood disorders and much more. Now the thyroid gland whih secretes the thyroid hormones (t3/t4) are controlled by the brain via a hormone called tsh (thyroid stimulating hormone). So just like a misbehaving child is going to be controlled by a parent/teacher, the tsh increases or decreases based on changes in t3/t4 levels. So an increased tsh level indicates that the brain or the higher managment is working overtime to keep the thyroid hormones in check. In your case, the thyroid gland function is decreasing progressively as time progresses and hence the efforts put by the tsh has to increase to compensate and balance the situation. Also the skin problems you said to be facing are most likely related to the thyroid dysfunction. So if your thyroid function is brought back to a healthy state i. E. Where it functions at nml levels on its own and doesn't need external help, all the symptoms will be relieved automatically. Here's what you can do. Find out what situations led you into thyroid dysfunction. Maintain a healthy diet and physical activity routine to avoid further health problems. Continue the prescribed meds until your thyroid function revives, as is possible with homeopathy. Avoid stressed - worry, anxious, angry, improper diet and inadequate rest. Happy to help!

I am a diabetic patient. Is there any natural way to control my levels? Please help me.
Diabetes cannot be cured. If managed well enough, it can be curtailed to avoid complications such as kidney failure, amputation, blindness and stroke. Preventing or managing diabetes requires clinical interventions as well as lifestyle changes. Medication is only one small part of managing diabetes. The major changes come from self-care activities. There are five essential self-care behaviours that have good outcomes. 1. Diet – Consume a low-fat, high-fibre diet helps. Eat lot of fruits, vegetables (at least 4-5 helping a day) along with whole meal, cereals and lentils 2. Exercise for at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. 3. Medications – Be compliant with the dosages. 4. Testing - Monitoring blood sugar and screening for complications 5. Psychology – Acceptance, coping and problem solving skills

There are some side effects of all anti diabetic drugs. But you need them to control sugar levels as high blood sugar level is more dangerous.

I'M 23. I read that pcos causes diabetes? I had a scan in sept 2015 that showed polycystic appearing ovaries. I have been having problems like period cycle lasting 3 days instead of normal 5 days since 2 cycles. Bitter sour taste in mouth. Acne on forehead since a month (I never had acne problems even as a teenager). Etc. My thyroid test (done in Aug 2015) is normal. So could diabetes be the cause of my problem?

Hello, pcos is seen more often in over weight or obese females. Obesity and inactivity also are responsible for causing diabetes t2 in many individuals. Pcos does not lead to diabetes. If you have any doubt get fasting and after food sugar testing done to find out.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if blood glucose is high, (well over 200 to 300 mg/100 ml) then a considerable amount of glucose is lost in the urine. That causes weight loss. Once diabetes is controlled and blood glucose levels return to normal, weight stabilses. You may have lost weight when blood glucose level was not well controlled. If now it is in good control, weight may not be lost. So please give current details including hba1c% (actual number, do not say it is normal). Even other test results like tsh and thyroid hormone levels. Looking at those details I may be able to guide. Thanks.

This range of fasting sugar test is true but not always if you have doubt for diabetes then get oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) done. This is another test used to diagnose prediabetes. The doctor will give you instructions on how to prepare for the test, but you won’t be able to eat anything for eight hours before the test; you’ll be fasting. This test give accurate result for test.

Ideally it should be used only once.(single prick). After that contamination chances increases. But due to cost burden in india we advice to use 2-3 times for same person & kept under hygienic condition.

When is it a Right Time to Visit a Fertility Specialist?

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
When is it a Right Time to Visit a Fertility Specialist?
Know the Right Time to Visit a Fertility Specialist.

If you’ve been facing problems in conceiving, it may be time to get yourself checked as it’s possible that you may be suffering from certain fertility issues or need professional guidance. A series of tests usually determine the root cause of the problem. These tests can include a physical examination, analysis of semen and blood tests, amongst others. There are certain factors that you and your partner must keep in mind when deciding upon the best time to opt for these tests and get started on an infertility treatment programme.

If you’re a female, it’s time to get yourself examined when:
1. You haven’t been able to conceive for over a year despite trying (when you are under 35)
2. You haven’t been able to conceive after trying for 6 months (above the age of 35)
3. You’ve had 1 or more miscarriages
4. You’ve been ovulating irregularly and your previous drug treatment has failed to correct the problem
5. You suffer from damaged or blocked fallopian tubes and endometriosis (a condition where tissues that cover your uterus also develop outside of the womb, causing pain and bleeding)
6. You have a history of genital infections

If you’re a male, you should consider an infertility treatment if you experience the following:
1. Facing difficulty in sperm ejaculation
2. Suffering from a low sperm count including poor sperm movement or structure (sperm’s shape and size)
3. Having an undescended testicle (a genital abnormality that occurs when the testicle fails to move into its normal position in the scrotum during the first 3 months of your life)

Apart from the above mentioned points, another important factor that you and your partner must decide upon is whether or not you intend to use assisted reproductive procedures, such as ICSI (IntraCytoplasmic Semen Insertion) or in vitro fertilization (IVF) to help in conceiving. While the former sees fertilisation occurring naturally after the eggs and sperm get placed inside one of the two fallopian tubes, the latter deals with the transference of the embryo created in the laboratory into the uterus.

Even though the thought of infertility can be disappointing for you and your partner, early and timely intervention can help in easing up the process of conception and remove obstacles that might hinder your chances of having a baby.

Hi. Getting fatigue soon with less physical activity can be caused by heavy bodyweight. But may be it is not the sole reason. Any heart artery blockages should be tested first. Once fit from heart side, she can be advised physical exercise and yoga as per her health and weight status. She can also be advised surgery for weight loss only after confirming that heart is healthy. Take care.
