I am feeling weak now a days, I have high blood pressure and diabetes, what to do?
Dietary and other lifestyle changes can help you control and prevent high blood pressure. Eating a diet that is rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy products and skimps on saturated fat and cholesterol can lower your blood pressure by up to 14 mm hg. This eating plan is known as the dietary approaches to stop hypertension (dash) diet. Get plenty of potassium, which can help prevent and control high blood pressure. Eat less saturated fat and total fat. If you're overweight, losing even 3 kgs can lower your blood pressure. Strive for at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

My wife is aged 45 yrs. She has been diagnosed with high Tsh level of 6.71. All her other reports i.e. Fasting/ Post Lunch Sugar, Blood Pressure, Lipid Profile, ECG, Stress Test are normal and she is a bit overweight i.e. 90 kg and height 163 cms. Exercises regularly. Is the TSH level of 6.71 too high and does she have to start taking medicines immediately?

Hello, thanks for the query. With TSH 6.71 mU/L, there's no need for any treatment at present. You are in a subclinical state. Treatment is advocated usually when TSH goes beyond 10 mU/ L then only treatment is considered. If you have any questions please do come back. Thanks.

5 Tips for a Smoother Transition to Menopause

5 Tips for a Smoother Transition to Menopause

5 Tips for a Smoother Transition to Menopause

Menopause is such a major stage in woman's life. But unlike puberty, its effect is more on the depressing side than fulfilling. Women who are going through the menopausal stage tend to experience changes in their body that they are not prepared for yet. Menopause signifies the end of a woman's fertility period and that may change a lot of things about her. Her ways, personality, lifestyle, and even marriage may be affected by this condition.

There are many ways to deal with menopause if only to smoothen its effect among females. Here are some tips to guide you through it:

1. Lead a healthier lifestyle

Menopause won't affect your body so much if you are accustomed living healthy. Stop smoking for that would dry up your skin and affect many of your internal organs. Stay clear of alcohol as your body will have lower tolerance of it as you get older. The permissible alcohol limit for women is 40ml per week. This time usually also corresponds to the time when children are leaving home for higher education, hence you can pay more attention to yourself and get into a regular lifestyle.

2. Watch your diet

What you eat is who you are. Be sure that you eat lots of vitamin-rich foods that would put your body well in shape. During the menopausal stage, your body will require a diet that is high in fiber and calcium. Make sure to pile up your plate with naturally coloured foods to get all the nutrients.


3. Exercise

The best and the fastest way to keep your body in shape is still through regular exercise. The peri-menopausal stage will make your body feel tired more than usual. Counter that by living a more active lifestyle. Work out more often. Muscle aches and fatigue tend to go away with the daily flexing of bones and muscles. Have enough exposure of sunlight i.e. around 30 min per day between 10am-3pm, to get vitamin D into your bones.

4. Take hormonal pills

There are many pills available at drug stores and pharmacies that contain the women's hormones progesterone and estrogen or derivatives of it. These pills are going to help greatly in countering the changes that your body is expected to go through. However, these medications can only be obtained with proper prescription so talk to your health provider about it.

5. Have a positive outlook of life after menopause:

Consider it as a life free of period and pregnancy worries instead of a time of lost youth. Yoga and meditation can be extremely beneficial to reduce hot flushes and to overcome dryness and weakness of the genital muscles.

It is better if you continue insulin now. Later on after 6 months or so if sugar levels are consistent then can think of switching to tablets. But it's better if he can continue with insulin. As with insulin the sugar control is much better.

I am 74 years old and suffering from diabets since 10 years and it type -2. I am using galvas met 2 tablets a day and one tablet of glycipage 500 mg. As galvas met is costly will you kindly suggest any other alternative tablet to keep my blood sugar level in normal sir? you may also suggest homeopathic /ayurvda medicines also. Now after taking above tablets my blood sugar level in fasting is 130. Please advice.

You can use other medicine like guconorm g2. But you will have to check blood sugar regularly for sometime after starting this medicine to make sure it is lowering down sugar. It is comparatively cheap medicine than galvas met.
