Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I get a feeling that I had answered this or a very similar query, because the PP blood glucose level mentioned was 321 mg. If you are the same person, my answer is again same. There is no special breakfast for lowering blood glucose. Basically when we take any food (which contains carbohydrates) plus also proteins & fat it is bound to increase glucose level. All the items consumed in breakfast like paratha, dosa, idli, upma, poha, bread (including brown bread), cereals etc. All contain starch, hence blood glucose is bound to go up. Even taking only fruits also will increase some amount of glucose. Therefore, what is most important is to control blood glucose with appropriate medication, then take a restricted diet that provides exact amount of calories based on ideal body weight (in your case 75 kgs), extent of daily physical exercise and considering need for weight reduction. Plus increase intake of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (about 100 g a day). Ideally in good controlled diabetes fasting blood glucose should b e<100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. This will help in either preventing or postponing long term complications related to diabetes. Otherwise, in an uncontrolled diabetes all the complications can be seen to occur early and with an unexpected severity. If you are seriously considering achieving a very good blood glucose control (as mentioned earlier), then please come in a private conversation with current details of fasting, PP glucose levels, HbA1c%, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise, then I will be able to guide, as in this communication we are supposed talk only about general guidelines without giving any prescriptions. Thanks.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Madam, if you are on adequate dosage of levothyroxine then TSH should have been maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. At that level all the symptoms are usually well in control. Since your TSH is still 9.93 mU/L, the dose is inadequate. Uncontrolled hypothyroidism will give all the symptoms complained. These symtoms will go away only when TSH is brought down to above mentioned level. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Please clarify what do you mean by "My kidney has started to attack due to diabetes. Diabetic also in control. Please understand when diabetes is present for a number of years whether well controlled or not, it does affect the kidneys. There is no special medication for that. Best is to achieve a strict blood glucose control with fasting < 100 mg, PP 160 to 180 mg and HbA1c%<7. Plus if you have high BP then taking ACE - Inhibitors or ARBs is helpful. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. There is no specific breakfast which lowers blood glucose by itself. Daily breakfast can be - upama, poha, (1 small plate), or 2 idlis with chutny and half cup sambar, 2 small dosas, 1 to 1/2 paratha with curd, like this there can be a variety of things that can be eaten. One can even take Oat cereal or other flakes with milk, plus a fruit. But basically a strict blood glucsoe control has to be achieved qith fasting <100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg/ 100 ml & HbA1c%<6.8. The PP blood glucose value mentioned (321 mg) is too high. Signifying uncontrolled diabetes. This needs to be brought under control urgently with proper medication, diet control & regular exercise. If you are willing to follow my advise then please come in a private conversation with following details: Fasting, PP (current values) HbA1c%, dietary details, extent of daily exercise and present drugs with dosage, then I will be able to give specific guidelines. Please understand strict blood glucose control is absolutely essential to prevent long term complications of diabetes like retinal problem, peripheral neuropathy, kidney affection and problems with lower limbs and heart. Thanks.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Bariatric surgery is one of the very good options to control obesity particularly morbid (BMI >40 kgs/M2). It also does reduce at times cures diabetes particularly if it is less than 5 years old. Long standing diabetes is not reversed, but there will be better blood glucose control due to less fat, better insulin action. Thanks.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. If 1 hour glucose (after OGTT 75 g) is 164 mg then it is not considered as Gestational diabetes. If it crosses 180 mg, then only GDM is diagnosed. It is better to take a healthy diet. Do not take sweets, but consume good deal of healthy foods and fruits. Thank.

Causes of Infertility in Females

Common Cause of Infertility in Females

For pregnancy to occur, every part of the complex human reproduction process has to take place just right. The steps in this process are as follows:

• One of the two ovaries releases a mature egg.

• The egg is picked up by the fallopian tube.

• Sperm swim up the cervix, through the uterus and into the fallopian tube to reach the egg for fertilization.

• The fertilized egg travels down the fallopian tube to the uterus.
• The fertilized egg implants and grows in the uterus.

Weight Loss With Hypothyroidism

Thyroid and weight loss

Losing weight with hypothyroidism is a challenging task. All those with hypo thyroid and weight loss on their mind, go for a very low calorie diet which can further lower the body’s metabolism, worsening the problem. Hence the correct approach is needed.
 
Keep a check on your thyroid levels: remember the answer to your weight loss question is solving the reason for weight gain. If you have a thyroid problem and weight loss is your goal, you must keep a check on your thyroid levels. Take your medications regularly and keep your levels as close to the normal range as possible. And you will see your weight coming to normal. Check your thyroid levels every 3-4 months, or at least once in 6 months.

Increase your activity: lowered metabolism is the main hurdle for those struggling with thyroid and weight loss. Increasing the activity levels through exercise will help in increasing the metabolism. Increase your activity levels by including a 30-45 minutes exercise session, be it walking, yoga, tai chi, swimming, cycling or gymming. Take the stairs every time you have to climb up or down. Short medium paced walks after your meals will be beneficial too.

Increase your water and fibre intake:

Hypothyroidism can cause chronic constipation, water retention and edema. Increasing water and fibre intake will help in regularizing bowel movements. Increased water consumption will also help in flushing out your lymphatic system, further helping water retention problems.

Increase selenium intake: to supplement selenium in your diet, include bran, whole wheat, tuna, onions and tomatoes in your diet.

Increase iodine intake: increasing iodine intake will help in improving the thyroid functions. Eat iodized salt. If your doctor advises, go in for iodine supplements as well.

Increase your metabolism: the key for thyroid and weight loss is increasing your metabolism. Here are some tips on how you can do that.

i] Have 5-6 mini meals – Small and frequent meals helps in reducing the sugar spikes and balance the blood sugar level. This will help in avoiding hunger pangs. Small frequent meals help by keeping the digestive system on the go. It helps in burning more involuntary calories and prevents storage of fat.

ii] Green tea – Drinking green tea will increase the metabolic rate and your energy levels. Hypothyroidism makes you feel tired and fatigued all the time. Green tea will help in decreasing the stress levels and will give you the most needed energy kick.

iii] Warm water and lemon – A glass of warm water and lemon early in the morning and after your main meals will help you in keeping the metabolism rate up through out the day.

Thyroid and weight loss:-

Foods to eat: Include a lot of carrots, whole grain cereals, avocado, apricots, fish, asparagus, olive oil and sunflower seeds.

Foods to avoid: Eat less of broccoli, lima beans, cabbage, peanuts, sweet potato, mustard, kale, kohlrabi, linseed and soy products. These foods may interfere with iodine uptake in the body. Don’t cut these foods out completely, just keep these to a minimum.

Whether the excess weight comes from thyroid or other hormonal issues, the key to weight loss is to correct the underlying condition while monitoring your diet, eating the right things and avoiding what’s wrong and exercising. A healthy lifestyle since the very beginning is the solution to every weight related problem, including thyroid and weight loss.

It will be much better to first control the TSH and all symptoms before going for another modality of treatment. You are, in the perimenopausal period which is adding to the problems. If you like, please contact me for discussion and advice.

High uric acid is mostly due to indigestion. stop eating heavy, fried, spicy foods and take ayurvedic medicines like trifla guggul and arogya vardhani for 1 month. Uric acid will come to normal. but after that continuous work on digestion is a must.

Hello Lybrate user, Constant high or fluctuating blood sugar will not only have a negative impact upon eyes but other health parameters too. In such cases the immunity goes down due to the higher blood sugars and one is very prone for infections. Homeopathy is a very good friend of diabetics, because it may not only reduce the sugar count in many cases, but it can cure diabetes also, provided the patient follows dietary precautions and physical movements. If it can not cure, it can drastically help in improving the quality of life in terms of preventing or delaying the diabetic effects on kidneys, eyes etc. I observe great effects using homeopathy in diabetics. It can treat wonderfully the very common symptoms of diabetics like pain in the legs, sleeplessness, lethargy, depression, fatigue, indifference etc. You must move, go for a walk, at least half an hour and have dietary precautions. She must have physical movements, that helps to keep sugar under control and minimize all carbohydrates from the diet for ex rice. She can use the following tips: One teaspoon of methi seeds soaked overnight in 100 ml of water is good for diabetes, Drink tomato juice with salt and pepper every morning on an empty stomach. For details you can contact me for further guidance.

Can molasses, spinach,dates, papaya,orange, grapes,broccoli, peanut be taken by a diabetic and kidney patient?
lybrate-user.Thanks for the query. Molases is a rich source of carbohydrate, a tablespoonful gives 58 calories. Therefore it is bound to increase blood glucose level. If one takes that, then carbs from other sources have to be proportionately reduced. As regards papaya, orange, grapes (about 8 ), broccoli, peanuts (30 g a day) can be taken by a person with diabetes. But blood glucose control should be good. Thanks.
