For decades I was a rice eater and since two months, I have switched over to wheat rava[coarse] eaten in the same way as rice with sambar, rasam and buttermilk. Besides my morning breakfast comprises oats mixed with 1 to 1.5 tsp of jaggery and milk. I have stopped eating ghee, oily products except small qty. Oil used in making curry, sambar and rasam, outside foods, etc. Am I still open to risk of contracting diabetes and/or other health disorders? is jaggery better than sugar? please advice. Thanks doctor.

You don't need to switch over to a routine that is different from what you have grown up eating. Avoiding rice and ghee and your traditional breakfast foods is not the way to good health. The reason for your health being affected is not your traditional foods but the lack of discipline, stress, inactivity and intake of junk and packeted foods. Rice is easy to digest than wheat or other cereals and your body us used to it so go for your traditional unpolished rice in moderation and even ghee is good for health because fat is needed by your body even to manage sugar levels. Organic jaggery is fine to take. So don't demonise the traditional foods and stick to it. Try to look into other aspects of your lifestyle in order to maintain good health and avoid lifestyle disorders.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user. Once you are diagnosed with diabetes you have to take medicine continously inorder to keep your blood sugar within normal limits. You should also avoid starch rich foods such as rice, potato, etc. You must take homeopathic mother tincture uranium nit q, 60 drops, thrice daily, with water, after meal. In case you don't find the aforesaid medicine in local homeopathic retail medicine shop you can try homeopathic uranium nit 3x tablets (r. S. Bhargava), 4 tablets, thrice daily in empty stomach. This is the best medicine for diabetes in homeopathy.

Hi doctor, can you pls tell me, if I am taking thyronorm 25 every day. What is the right way to take thyronorm 25? I mean empty stomach and with a full glass of water or can be taken with little water for better results? please tell me sir.

B.Sc. - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Hi , the amount of water will not have an impact on the end result' although as perhaps recommended by your doctor, best to have the thyroid medication first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Work on your lifestyle--eat healthy meals, workout consistently and plug problematic behaviors. Doing this will ensure that your medication strength doesn't have to be increased. In fact, with the assistance and aid of your physician, you could even lower it if you manage to successfully increase your body's thyroid hormone function. Hope this helps. .

I am 39 years old from last 2 months I came to know that I have a sugar. Yesterday I check it was too. Pls advice me....
Hello, I will advice you this medicine: Stamonium 30C 1 dose now and then start taking Cosmos 30C three times in a day for 1 week. Then again check your blood sugar status. It should get reduced. And the addiction for corex syrup should also get reduced. As you are at the entry point of getting diabetes, I want you to be saved from life long Anti-diabetics (Tablets). So you take that medicine and please report to me after 1 week. Your diabetes should be under control by 3 months treatment. And start walking in morning daily for at least 15-20 mins before 8 AM. Take care. :)

Mr. Lybrate-user, in persons with diabetes fruits to be avoided are - mangoes, bananas, chikkoos & grapes. Fruits like papaya, guava, apple, orange, sweet lime, pomegranate, water melon, other melons & pear can be eaten. Only about 100 g a day, that too with excellent sugar control. Thanks for the question.

What causes hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? can iodine help this condition?
You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid alcohl if you take.
