No problem as long as your FBS PPBS AND HBAIC LEVEL ARE Within normal limits. For more suggestions you may refer my health tips on Diabetes and diet. Fruits or dry fruits can be taken in small quantity as they are rich in antioxidant and vitamin.

If we get sugar or thyroid disease at the age 21 what are the pregnancy problems arise after getting married at the age of 25?

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
It can complicate the pregnancy to some extent. But not much if it kept under control. Please consult a proper homeopathic doctor for this. I would suggest you to go for at least one consultation. Either with me or some other doctor whom you trust. That will be better for you. Still if you have any queries, please feel free to ask me. Take care :)

Herbal tea with ginger is beneficial for thyroid functioning. In fact, beverages including coffee, tea, carbonated drinks and alcohols should be avoided by patients afflicted with thyroid disorders. In its place herbal tea may be an alternative option. Application of watercress's paste on the enlarged neck is also an effective remedy.

Can homeopathy treat a person with hypothyroidism with anti-tpo test resulting greater than 1300?

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Thyroid is a hormonal organ. Hormones are signals in our body which effect various vital processes of the body. You can link them to traffic lights for the smooth and safe flow of traffic in the body. Unfortunately due to several known and unknown reasons, some hormonal organs like thyroid start to underperform or over perform leading to hypo or hyper function respectively. When we prescribe medicine for hypothyroid patients - we just provide supplementation of deficient hormone in the body. We currently have no medicine to cure the thyroid gland - we just have medicine to fulfil the hormone that was supposed to be manufactured by the thyroid gland. Since the requirement is daily - that is why the medicine is given daily. Since the requirement is lifelong- thats why the medicine is lifelong!

I am 29 year old female. I have thyroid problem . Taking thyronorm tablet 50 MCG. I am 153 cm height and my weight is 75 kg. I could not reduce my weight , even though attended fitness class for more than a year. Hence, my doctor suggested me zero fat a sachet for 1 month. I consumed it for 2 days during night time . Felt like shivering. Pls advise whether to consume zero fat a sachet or capsule to loose weight?

Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Lybrate-user, looking at your weight and height, there is grade 1 obesity with 32.05 kg /m2 bmi, (normal <23 kgs). This definitely needs reduction. If hypothyroidism is under very good control with tsh levels between 3 to 4 milli units/l, then efforts to reduce weight can be successful. First thing is to bring tsh levels in that range if they are not. Secondly zerofat a (orlistat) is not much beneficial. Along with dietary restriction orlistat can at most help loos about 6 kgs of weight over 1 year. Instead it is better if you stick to a diet plan that gives calories based on your ideal body weight (53 kgs x 20 cals = 1060 per day), plus doing a work out to burn a good deal of calories. Daily 1 hour of brisk walking can help in burning about 270 to 300 calories. If you can jog or run, more calories can be spent. Use more of green leafy vegetables, salad and fruits. Totally avoid junk foods, pastries, bakery items, deep fried foods, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), products containing fructose corn syrup, avoid highly processed packed products. No alcohol and smoking. Drink plenty of water and clear soups, thin butter milk. Avoid high fat milk products. Set a target of loosing half kg per week, and try and cut about 5 to 8% of current weight. If you have any doubts please do come back. Thanks.

My question is. I'm a psoriasis patient. An just got detected by diabetic disease 143*/140. Weight is 73. Soo wht precautions should I take. As per diet an exercise.

Certificate in Basic Course on Diabetes Management, CCEBDM Certificate in Diabetes, MBBS
General Physician, Pune
I leave it to you to take care about your psoriasis from your doctors. I should have been given more details, like your blood sugar readings at morning empty stomach level and 1 1/2 hours after principal morning meal. An initial reading of 200 mg % is taken as of diabetes. You may also get hba1c done. If anything above 7.5 just go to a physician or diabetologist with these reports to get proper health plan. Your main problem appears to be weight. Ideally it should be max 65 kg. You have to control your diet under guidance of dietitian or physician. Eat in time avoid free sugars in form of sweet, fruits. Fried dishes. Take high fibre food like green leafy vegetables, reduce your intake by about 300 cal per day. Regular exercixe like walking, sports, cycling swimming etc. Watch your weight. Get blood sugar done after food on weekly basis and hba1c once in 3 - 6 months. Share it with your doctor regularly and take his advice. I feel you are prediabetic and with above advice can postpone it by long period.

I am suffering from diabetes from 5 years I ate so many medicine but not controlled now my ppp 380mg and fasting 290 mg my age is 38 years male. please help to control diabetes.

Hi Mr. Lybrate-user, taking only medicines is not the solution towards controlling your sugar levels. For controlling your diabetes you have to follow proper diet, do some brisk walk along with medicines. These all 3 will work together and you will get to kwow how fit you can be. Controlling diabetes are important as fluctuations of sugar levels can cause many other problems also like heart problems, kidney disorder, etc. You need to follow a proper diet plan so that your sugar levels will be in normal range. There are some general guidelines you must follow till you consult for your own diet chart. 1. Avoid sugars. 2. Avoid simple carbohydrates like maida and its products, white rice etc 3. Have complex carbohydrates like whole wheat flour chapatis, oats, dalia, brown rice etc. 4. Avoid banana, chiku, mango, grapes. 5. Avoid fruits juices. 6. Avoid potatoes, sweet potato, arbi. 7. Have more salads and other vegetables. 8. Have small and frequent meals.

I am 52 y old and suffering from diabetic from Dec 1999, thyroid from one year use medicines but not control my sugar level any time. I never take sugar tea and other liquid drink etc. Pl advise diet and to avoid any other food product for the same.

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
For diabetic patients, it is adviceable to little quantity of food at regular intervals of 2 hours. Avoid taking heavy meals at a time so that there won't be a load of food for stomach to digest. And if possible, please go for Homeopathic treatment for getting relieved from diabetes. Homeopathy really helps to cure diabetes, I am saying this from my experience, from my patients whose diabetes got cured. Rest all depends on you. Take care. :)

Doctor I am a diabetic patient. My sugar level goes always high so what should I do to control it.

MBBS, MD - Medicine
General Physician, Delhi
Increase thirst, increased frequency of urination are some initial symptoms of diabetes but it can vary from being completely asymptomatic to non specific symptoms like weakness, tingling in feet, dry mouth, blurry vision, burning during urination. You need to follow a healthy lifestyle to prevent such metabolic diseases. Type 1 usually occurs at younger age due to insulin deficiency and treated with insulin injections. Type 2 usually in adults due to insulin resistance and treated with oral medicines.
