Mr. Lybrate-user, it is essential to get your diabetes under strict control, with fasting sugar level around 100 mg, pp150 to 160 mg & hba1c%<6.8. Father having diabetes will not affect the baby in mother's womb. But in later life chances of children getting diabetes (t2) are much higher, particularly if healthy lifestyle is not adapted. As regards sex life, diabetes can affect erectile function, so it is absolutely essential to achieve strict blood glucose control. Thanks.

Excess ammont of sugar doesn't cause diabetes. It is genetic disease and can occur to anyone who don't take sugar at all. But you should take sugar in moderation because it contains calories and excess will lead to weight gain which will predispose you to diabetes.

I am 40 yrs old suffering from high blood pressure cholesterol and high uric acid.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
I am 40 yrs old suffering from high blood pressure cholesterol and high uric acid.
High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. Garlic,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines . for uric acid take tab. zyloric 100 mg once a day. tab. bencid 500 mg once a day. tab. naprosyn 500 mg sos for pain.

Lybrate-user, for hypothyroidism if you are on treatment, then tsh should be between 3 to 4 milli units/l, for complete relief from symptoms. You can have breakfast like everyone else. There is nothing special required. Following foods / vegetables should be avoided: - soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Always use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Avoid maida and products made out of it. All bakery items should be avoided. Consume more of green leafy vegetable, salads and fruits. Avoid high fat containing cheese. Thanks.

There is lot of info on net but selection should be as per medical history, body nature and availability of certain herbs. As a primary measure, karela powder (or cap. Karela), methidana seeds or powder, turmeric powder, shigru (sahinjana) and meshashringi, manjishtha capsules/ powder should be used to address both the problems. Prolonged use will show curing trends without side effects.

Your sugar levels are definitely high. Is it fasting or post prandial? kindly inform the dosage of the medicines being taken. Please be on strict diabetic diet and go for regular one hour walk either in the morning or in the evening. Get your blood tesed for hba1c which gives you the previous three months average of your blood sugar. Only then other medications can be prescribed.

Nutrition is very important in managing diabetes. Not only what you eat, but how much you eat and when you eat influences your blood sugar. Meals should be at regular times with planned snacks. They should be low fat, high fiber foods with a limited amount of simple carbohydrates. Homoeopathc treatment is effective for controlling sugar levels.

Dear it is a misconception that eating sweet things will cause diabetes. Yes you may gain weight further as 90 kg is quite a bit. I feel you need to seriously look at your diet and exercise schedule considering your respiratory problem. Kindly revert with your reports so as a proper consultation can be provided.

I am 47 years old woman. I am suffering with thyroid, diabetics, bp. Give me few suggestions for all these.
If you are on treatment for all three conditions, then to say you are in control following levels should be achieved: fasting glucose near 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg & hba1c%<7. Bp<130/80 mm hg, tsh between 3 to 4 milli units /ml. Plus exercise regularly which is helpful in all three conditions. Diet restriction and salt restriction also is important. Consuming of green leafy vegetables and salads is very necessary.

Dear Doctor, I am 61 years old male. My Glucose fasting is 110 mg/dL PP 149ng/dL. Shall i take honey/ dates/jam.

MBBS, MRCGP ( UK), D Diab (UK)
Endocrinologist, Hyderabad
Dear Doctor, I am 61 years old male. My Glucose fasting is 110 mg/dL PP 149ng/dL. Shall i take honey/ dates/jam.
Hello, 1) Your blood glucose levels are fairly satisfactory. Your post prandial level is normal (for good control it should be less than 160) but your fasting glucose is on borderline (for good control it should less than 110). 2) So, I would suggest not to consume dates/jam/honey. They are filled with sugars. You can take fresh fruits like apples, pears, guava, orange, sweet lime etc. 3) Further you are still overweight. Your ideal weight should be around 65-67 kgs. So you should follow a strict diet and do plenty of exercise. Hope this helps you Thank you.
