Is mango OK for diabetic patients?
If sugar control is excellent then a small piece of mango once a while may be eaten. But usually it should be avoided.

Mr. lybrate-user, Tab Galvusmet (50/500) is definitely a good combination medicine. However, if adequate control is not achieved then there is most likely a need for some add on treatment. Since there is no mention about blood glucose levels, exercise, diet etc, there in no way to give any suggestion or give any comment. Plus in this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines, no prescriptions. If you come in a private conversation with all above details I will definitely be able to give specific guidance including prescriptions. Thanks.

If your blood sugar is very high you can loose weight due to diabetes. Metformin can also cause some loss of weight. You have to look for associated problems like hyperthyroidism.

This is a lifestyle related issue and it can be surely treated with intensive lifestyle modification program. There is a general approach and a specific approach as per individual patients metabolic profile. Try this general approach (see below) for 4 weeks. If this works then continue. If this is not enough then revert for further assessment and customized approach. By customised approach we can attempt to reverse her diabetes and achieve excellent sugar control without medication. 1. Do not eat anything sugary or sweet. Zero sweetness in diet. 2. Eat plenty of salad in lunch and dinner along with other foods. 3. Do not drink any liquid calorie like cola or fruit juices. 4. Continue brisk walks or jogging for 45 - 60 minutes every day.

You will have to take antidiabetic medications lifelong. It needs continous monitoring and most importantly you need to follow diabetic diet and exercise daily for at least 30 minutes. Its not mandatory that you will require insulin.

Hypothyroidism slows down metabolism so you need to burn out more calories than you consume to create negative energy balance & lose weight. 1. Be physically active- take stairs instead of lift, walk instead of hiring transport, exercise daily for 1 hr, join aerobic/ dancing/ swimming/ karate classes 2. Take your medication regularly as prescribed by the doctor 3. avoid raw cruciferous vegetables (cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli) 4. Have small frequent meals (6-8) 5. Eat slowly & chew your food well 6. Avoid junk/ processed/ packaged/ canned/ sugary/ fried foods, cold drinks, alcohol, energy drinks, chocolate, ice cream, sweets, glucose, potato, sugar, sabudana 7. Have plenty of whole fruits & vegetables (raw , cooked, boiled) 8. Replace refined grains (maida, white bread, white rice, noodles, biscuit, cake, sewai) with whole grains (atta, dalia, suji, bajra, oats, barley, atta bread, brown rice, jowar) 9. Maintain a regular sleep cycle. Sleep & wake up early. 10. Use less oil in cooking

Diabetes is a disease occurring due to either lack of insulin or resistance to its action. In case of t1 diabetes there is a total absence of insulin (no beta cells). In addition over weight and inactivity also contribute. Diabetes is diagnosed by checking blood sugar levels. Fasting >126 mg and pp >200 mg per 100 ml of blood. Precautions to be taken are exercising daily more than 1 h, maintaining near normal weight and taking a balanced diet.

Mr. Lybrate-user. All you have to do is to manage your obesity. Your weight should be 83 kg. To achieve that you need a weight reducing diet customized according to your needs, regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle. All of your complications will be subsided once your weight will be reduced to your ideal one.

Dear Lybrate User, you may have come across a number of gimmicking advertisement of medicines which claim to decrease body weight in a very short time. Don’t fall prey for such advertisement because the excess weight would not be shredded until each & every underlying cause of being overweight is diagnosed & treated. Normally 1 kg of fat occupies thrice the volume than that of 1 kg of muscle. That’s why accumulation of fat makes a person so bulky whereas body-builders have a shredded physique although most of the body-builders are overweight according to the BMI index. So it is evident that to lose the excess weight you have to get rid of the excess fat in your body. Now the basic role behind the process of accumulation of fat in human body is played by Metabolism. Metabolism is the set of life-sustaining chemical transformations within the cells of living organisms. The three main purposes of metabolism are the conversion of food/fuel to energy to run cellular processes, the conversion of food/fuel to building blocks for proteins, lipids, nucleic acids, and some carbohydrates, and the elimination of nitrogenous wastes. In order to lose the excess fat you need to increase your rate of metabolism. First of all you need to rule out the possibility of the presence of any hormonal disturbance that may be affecting your sister's metabolism. Just conduct a total Thyroid profile test of all her blood. If the reports are within normal limits then she should proceed further to increase your metabolism. If you find any abnormalities in the report you should immediately consult a doctor.

Hi Anam Numbness of your hands could be related to thyroid problem. There might also be deficiency of vitamin B-12. You should start exercising daily for 30 minutes. simple aerobics will be enough. Start taking calcium, vitamin-D and Vitamin B-12 supplements. One tablet of calcium daily and One for Vitamin B-12 daily For vit.-D take cholecalciferol sachet weekly for 6 weeks. This solution is for now but it wont be permanent. For a permanent solution your thyroid problem needs to be treated and that is POSSIBLE with HOMOEOPATHIC medicines; you will be cured and there wont be any need of taking thyronorm. Your migraine will also get cured. For this a proper consultation is required so that your case can be analysed and treatment given accordingly. For this you can consult any good homoeopath or me as you are in Delhi only. Otherwise you can make good use of Lybrate.

Sir / Madam, My brother 56 years, He is a diabetic and under guidance and supervision of Dr. Dinesh Neopane, MBBS, MD at Biratnagar (Nepal. However, from past one and half year it is observed that his hemoglobin count gets reduced drastically in short span of time. This issue though has been addressed but we would like to get an expert opinion for better solution. At earlier stage doctor did assumed that it could be due to piles problem and with few units of blood transfusion patient was better. This result though was short lived and after five months again blood transfusion was done. On the recommendation of consulting doctor we met Nephrologist and his views were in sync with family doctor and advice was to continue the same medicine. Later, the patients started feeling week and under consultation of the doctor an injection EPOFIT (erythropoietin) was used twice weekly for six weeks. At that period the patient's hemoglobin count was below 6. Currently report shows that prescribed injection is working fine and patients has show improvement but we family members would like to take an expert review at your recommendation or reference is required as which doctor would be seeking appointment with. Looking forward for your early reply.
