Mr. lybrate-user, If you have lost fat then it is really very good. That helps better control of diabetes. If you want to build muscle mass then have to exercise daily for over 1 hour, do aerobic and strength building exercises, plus take good balanced diet. If your diet lacks proteins then add extra proteins, that will help in building muscle mass. But without good deal of exercise there will not be any muscle mass built. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, normal blood fasting glucose level is in the range of 70 to 110 mg/100 ml. If a person is non diabetic then there hardly any situation where hypoglycemia occurs. Hence, the levels mentioned by you are absolutely normal. Nothing to worry.

She is suffering from uric acid and having swelling on feet as well as fingers what's the solution for this problem?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
She is suffering from uric acid and having swelling on feet as well as fingers what's the solution for this problem?
A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed.

What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, also called hashimoto's disease, hashimoto's thyroiditis is an autoimmune disease, a disorder in which the immune system turns against the body's own tissues. In people with hashimoto's, the immune system attacks the thyroid. This can lead to hypothyroidism, a condition in which the thyroid does not make enough hormones for the body's needs. Located in the front of your neck, the thyroid gland makes hormones that control metabolism. This includes your heart rate and how quickly your body uses calories from the foods you eat. The exact cause of hashimoto's is not known, but many factors are believed to play a role. They include: genes, hormones, excessive iodine, radiation exposure. Treatments for hashimoto's thyroiditis: there is no cure for hashimoto's, but replacing hormones with medication can regulate hormone levels and restore your normal metabolism. The pills are available in several different strengths.

How to solve a problem of a person who is having sugar disease. and heart problem. What are the best medicine.
diabetes one has to take anti diabetic drugs or insulin injections as advised, and also observe dietary restrictions, exercise daily for more than 1 h and avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk food and pastries. Plus maintain weight near normal. For heart disease the the treatment and other guidelines will depend on what exactly is the disease. There is nothing like best medicine, drug requirement will always be based on what is the diagnosis.

I am 24 year female, I have back ache problem, and I am a diabetic patient insulin based. What I do now for back ache?
Lybrate-user, if diabetes is well in check with fasting blood glucose closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<6.8, then it is really good. Because uncontrolled diabetes tends to aggravate all existing symptoms. To control bach ache one of the best methods is to do specific exercises which help toning up upper and lower back muscles and strengthen them. Pain killers are a temporary solution. If need be consult a physiotherapist or do yoga asanas.

Mr. lybrate-user, If one takes zero carb diet, it may help in controlling blood glucose, but I am not so sure as to how one can take a zero carb diet. Please give the details of the items being consumed, then I will be able to comment. Plus carbs are a critical ingredient of our normal diet as our brain depends exclusively on glucose for its energy requirement. It needs about 120 g of glucose in 24 hours. Thanks.

Infertility - Are You at Risk?

MBBS, DGO, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MRCOG
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Infertility - Are You at Risk?

Infertility is a condition where a couple is trying to conceive in a natural way and is not able to do so even after one year of trying. It is also a matter of worry for patients who are over the age of 35 years and those who are not able to conceive naturally even after 12 months of trying constantly. So here are the causes, risks and treatment for this condition.

Causes: There are many causes of infertility. It may be down to a condition present in one or both partners. As per a medical study, 20% of the cases of infertility are due to males, while 40% to 50% cases are due to problems in the female partner. 30% of the cases suffer from infertility due to problems in both males and females. Ovulation and fertilisation are the main elements of the conception process, and any condition in the female or male can upset either function which can make it difficult to conceive. While abnormal sperm production and transport may be a common condition that leads to infertility in males, other factors like side effects of cancer treatments and too much exposure to toxins and chemicals can also play an important role in this regard. For females, the causes of infertility may range from ovulation disorders, uterine and fibroid tumours, uterine and cervical anomalies, damage to or blockage of the fallopian tubes, endometriosis, primary ovarian insufficiency and pelvic adhesions. Also, factors like thyroid, cancer and medication leading to temporary infertility may be at play. 

Risk: There are a number of factors that put a male or a female at risk of infertility. Being in your mid 30s usually has an adverse effect on the ovulation and production of well functioning sperm. Further, smoking and tobacco are among the main causes of infertility in either partner. Excessive alcohol consumption may also lead to this problem. Being overweight or underweight can also make a person infertile. Further, not getting enough exercise and routine activities out of your day, can lead to this condition as well. 

Treatment: Male patients can go through treatment for any existing infections, hormonal injections and medication, surgical options like vasectomy reversal, and ART or assistive reproductive technology. Female patients can turn to medication that will stimulate ovulation, Intrauterine Insemination, and surgical processes to correct a uterine septum and remove endometrial polyps, or even a hysteroscopy surgery. 

If these methods fail, the patient or the couple can always turn to methods like in-vitro fertilisation. For other mild reasons, lifestyle changes along with a stress free environment can help in increasing the chances of conception. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Dear, your sugars are well controlled with this therapy. Hba1c is also excellently controlled. But I observe that your bmi is slightly higher. In this context piopod 15 may lead to weight gain. Although it's a very good medicine to make insulin act better, weight gain negates it's good effect. You can use other newer drugs with good track records in place of piopod. But if you are comfortable with existing treatment then all the three medicines are available as a single tablet too which can reduce the number of tablets and expenses too. Also amaryl 1 mg may make you feel low on sugar sometimes manifesting as excessive hunger or tremors. So observe sugar levels at home at various different time i. E before lunch, before dinner or randomly at 6 pm. This will help you to detect low sugar if any.

Hi there. See there are many drugs available for diabetes, hypertension and high cholestrol. But all the prescriptions should be individulised. It depends on the exact values of lipid profile and sugar values and the blood pressure and ideally medicines cud only be given by checking patient in person. I advise you to please see a doctor. Thank u.

To know the whole things you have to understand basics of medical science. As of stopping medicine, pl do not think of it. Having been dependent on such drugs for three decades, you can't switch to other things suddenly and that too at this stage. When chemical diuretics are given (in HTN/ oedema/ renal problems etc), electrolyte depletion takes place as a side effect such as potassium depletion etc which is again supplied through potassium drugs. This vicious cycle goes in. Here Ayurveda is different. SLOW but natural. Diuretics are such that there would not be electrolyte imbalance/ depletion. But this doesn't mean that allopathy is bad. It has wonderful life saving developments to its credit. On the other hand Ayurveda's stress on lifestyle and natural medicine has wonderful results but its limited too esp in critical life conditions. Need is to respect both approaches where needed. It has to be understood by both ailing humanity and medical fraternity. I would suggest you to gradually supplement your mother's treatment with herbals for introducing little comfortable life ahead without compromising on medical facilities. If agree, pl consult with more details.

DIABETES AND LIFESTYLE CHANGES Diabetic diet is not a matter of deprivation or avoidance but of healthy eating habits. Genetic susceptibility appears to play a powerful role in the occurrence of type 2 DM, but the current epidemic likely reflects marked changes in lifestyle. Decreased physical activity and increased energy consumption have together promoted obesity, which is a strong risk factor for diabetes. Nutrition is an integral component of prevention, delayed onset and management of diabetes. Goals of diabetes management: Provide a nutritionally sound meal Attain and maintain blood glucose levels in the normal range as far as possible To attain and maintain desirable weight To maintain healthy levels of blood fat i. E. Cholestrol and triglycerides To prevent long term complications of diabetes Healthy eating; 60% of the calories should come from carbohydrates 12%-20% from protein 20% -35% from fats Food should be distributed equally throughout the day Choose foods from all food groups in all major meals Choose foods high in fiber as it slows digestion and gives a feeling of satiety Total fat and saturated fat should be limited, some amount of fat is essential for important body functions and it also helps slow gastric emptying. Whole grains should be chosen over refined cereals like sooji, sago, white bread, maida Whole dals have a very low GI index and should be included daily EXERCISE: · Exercise helps diabetics lower blood glucose · It helps the body use insulin better Exercising helps one control weight, develop lean muscle and reduce body fat Maintain adequate level of physical activity so as to achieve fitness and a negative energy balance 30 to 45 min of brisk walk daily is recommended.
