Hi I am 32 years women and I hv suffering with diabetes since 4 years. I want to reduce my wait. Please suggest me.
In case of diabetes you have to eat nutrient dense food and exercise well. You need a diet which comprises of whole grains like jowar, bajra, wheat, brown rice, pulses like moong, musoor, bengal gram, lots of vegetables, fruits, eggs, fish, chicken, paneer, healthy oil, nuts and seeds. You need to eat them in right proportion. Avoid eating sugar and sweets, refined foods like maida, noodles pasta, white rice and products, bread. Drink a lot of water. Exercise atleast 5 times a week. Do not overeat. Eat 3 proper meals and 2 snacks in between. Stop when your stomach is 80% full. Eat slowly.

Hi, I am suffering with thyroid problem with last seven years, Please suggest me to control the thyroid in limit. And last month it is 26. Or Any tips regarding the taking foods.

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
Mr. lybrate-user, The level mentioned (26) is I think TSH is it true? If correct, then it shows totally uncontrolled hypothyroidism. When on treatment TSH should be between 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms are in check. It appears the current treatment is grossly inadequate. First and foremost is treatment has to be upgraded. Thanks.

As per your height, your weight should be 60 kgs. You are 40 kgs above your ideal body weight. Diet & exercise have 90 % failure rate. Only thing that will work for you is bariatric (weight loss) surgery.

Hi For your age, fasting blood sugar of less than 110 is a good control. Have a high protein dinner and do not have heavy or high calorie dinner. Finish your dinner 2 hours before going to bed. This will keep the fasting blood sugar normal.

Before lunch, it was 145 (approx) and post lunch it was 200 (approx). I still go for ayurvedic medicine, strict diet control, yoga and light exercise on daily basis. Please advise.

If your sugar level comes to normal limits, it does not mean that you should stop the medicines. You will still require a small dose of medicines to prevent the sugar from rising back. Ofcourse, your diet and exercise control is very important and should be continued so that the dose of medications that you require will be minimum.

Mr. Lybrate-user, any form of water purifier is fine. There is no contraindication for any of these in a patient with diabetes. Water purified from any method is good enough. It does not carry any thing that can harm the body.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

Can you provide a diet chart for weightless for thyroid people? Which food should b avoided in case of hypothyroidism?
There is no special diet for hypothyroidism. Only thing is certain things should be avoided as they affect thyroxine hormone action. So avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard and coffee. Plus should use whole grain flour for roti and chapati. Also should consume good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Also should avoid high fat containing milk products, sweetened aerated drinks, highly processed food products. Plus a daily exercise of at least 1 hour is required.
