Check your hba1c level. And at this stage, aim for dietary changes and weight loss to bring about a significant change in your levels. Start slowly and gradually. You are already on a high dose of oral medicines.

Sir What is symptoms of diabetes? And why it happened? Which food is responsible for it?
Mr. lybrate-user, Diabetes most often has hardly any symptoms, that is one of the reasons why it is not identified. But when fully developed invariably has following symptoms: excess thirst, excess urination, excess hunger, unexplained weight loss and tiredness. The most common reasons for T2 diabetes are being overweight, having central obesity, junk food intake, lack of insulin & inactivity. Thanks.

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.......take punarnavadi mandoor and kanchnar guggul 1-1 tab twice a day. ..take arogyavardhini vati 1-1 tab twice a day with warm water

Dear patient, it is a good news that your levels under control but the recent report shows less than the normal range. Now you need to take 50 mcg one day and 25 mcg another day so that you can alternate taking these medicines and once again you need to check your thyroid levels, take care.

you can use cream surfaz-sn for your atopic dermatitis. and take tab. anti histamine regularly. and control your uric acid level with diet i.e. In high uric acid avoid few diets i.e. high purine-rich foods, milk products, protein foods, meat, dried beans, dried peas, mushrooms, whey proteins which are used in zym, alcohol, diuretic medicines. Eat balanced diet , eat banana, take amino acid rich diets, L- glutamine like supplements, whole grain, oats, green veg., low cholesterol foods, plenty of water in day time, Do test Kidney Function Test every 6 months to monitor levels of uric acid.

WEIGHT 1. Whole-grain bread. Research shows that people who follow a weight-loss program incorporating whole-grain breads, cereals, and other foods lose more body fat from the abdominal area than those who eat only refined-grain foods, like white bread and rice. 2. Low-fat milk and yogurt. Scientists have found that the more calcium in fat cells, the more fat those cells will burn. In one study, two groups of overweight mice were put on a restricted-calorie diet, but one also got calcium supplements. The no-calcium mice lost 8 percent of their body fat, compared to 42 percent among the mice that did get calcium. 3. Lean protein. Good sources of protein, such as lean meats, eggs, and beans, help keep your blood sugar stable. The result youll feel full longer and get a boost in energy and that will help you burn more belly fat. Consult me in private for detailed treatment and to ascertain your personality symptomatically.

Hyperthyroidism - 3 Type of Foods You Must Avoid!

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Hyperthyroidism - 3 Type of Foods You Must Avoid!

Hyperthyroidism causes the thyroid gland to produce excess hormones, which accelerates the metabolism, in turn affecting the heart, bone health, and mood. The symptoms of hyperthyroidism include increased heartbeat, insomnia, anxiety, heightened hunger, and weight loss, all of which can be controlled via medicines and a healthy diet plan.

However, there are certain foods that can worsen the condition and lead to the severity of the symptoms. These should be avoided at all costs by anyone suffering from hyperthyroidism.

- Caffeinated drinks

Caffeinated drinks can worsen hyperthyroidism symptoms by aggravating palpitations, anxiety and insomnia. These include energy drinks, coffee, black tea, alcohol, soda. It is advisable to replace these drinks with healthy herbal tea or lemon water, which are apt refreshments with multiple health benefits.

- Foods with high glycemic content

Processed refined grains lose their nutrients like vitamin B and become not only useless but harmful to the body. The high glycemic content in refined grains can cause fluctuations in your blood sugar level, which can trigger terrible mood swings. It is advised to swap these with whole grains, quinoa, oatmeal and wild rice.

- Trans fat and hydrogenated oil

Trans- fat and partially hydrogenated oil are the culprits of heart diseases. To ensure the health of your heart and reduce the chances of hyperthyroidism, it is important to minimize the consumption of all the foods that list hydrogenated oil in their ingredient list. These are cookies, margarine, cakes, donuts, French fries, crackers and many others. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

General Physician,
In my body, uric acid is 7.02 mg/lb .how can decrease it and stop making for future .plz help me .I am very tension.
Normal Uric acid levels are 2.4-6.0 mg/dL (female) and 3.4-7.0 mg/dL (male). Normal values will vary from laboratory to laboratory. Also important to blood uric acid levels are purines.Things that may cause this slow-down in the removal of uric acid include rich foods, being overweight, having diabetes, taking certain diuretics (sometimes called water pills) and drinking too much alcohol. Other less common causes are a diet high in purine-containing items or your body producing too much uric acid.Drink apple cider vinegar. Add 3 teaspoons of vinegar to 8 ounces of water and have it 2-3 times every day to treat uric acid. A diet rich in folic acid can help lower uric acid naturally. Folic acid rich foods like pinto beans, sunflower seeds and lentils should be included in your diet.

Type 1 Diabetes - How To Recognize The Signs?

MBBS, MD, FAIIDR

Type 1 Diabetes - How To Recognize The Signs?

What is Type 1 Diabetes? 

Type 1 diabetes develops when your immune system destroys the cells in your pancreas called beta cells. They are the ones that make insulin. Insulin helps to maintain glucose level in the blood. Glucose does not move into your cells if insulin is not present Because of insulin deficiency glucose remain non-utilized and its level built up in the blood. There is no particular cure for type 1 diabetes. Although, with proper treatment, individuals can live long and healthy lives.

Type 1 diabetes is more common in young age, but can happen at any age. Symptoms of Type 1 Diabetes: Symptoms of type1 diabetes are ordinarily progressive and become obvious rapidly, over a couple days to weeks, and are brought on by high glucose. High glucose or high blood sugar can hurt numerous parts of the body, for example, the eyes, heart, blood vessels, nerves, and kidneys. 

Symptoms of type 1 diabetes include: 

  1. Urinating a considerable measure; this might be more noticeable around the evening time. The kidneys are attempting to dispose off the overabundant sugar in the blood. To do that, they need to dispose off more water. More water means more urine. 
  2. Being extremely thirsty is very common. This happens if you urinate so frequently that you lose enough water to wind up dehydrated.
  3. Unnecessary reduction weight without attempting. This happens in light of the fact that you are dehydrated. Weight reduction may likewise happen in the event that you are losing those sugar calories in your urine as opposed to using them. 
  4. Increased appetite is another symptom. You feel hungry on the grounds that your body is not utilizing all the calories that it can. A large number of them leave your body in your urine. 
  5. Hazy vision. At the point when sugar develops in the focal point of your eye, it sucks additional water into your eye. This changes the state of the focal point and makes your vision hazy. 
  6. Feeling extremely tired. You feel tired for the same reason you feel hungry. Your body is not utilizing the calories you are eating, and your body is not getting the energy it needs. 
  7. Youngsters may lack enthusiasm for their normal exercises. 
  8. Flushed, hot, dry skin.
  9. Loss of appetite, stomach pain, and nausea.
  10. Quick and heavy breathing.
  11. Anxiety, sleepiness, trouble waking up or coma.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes can only be treated by either oral anti-diabetic drugs or insulin injections or both. Plus diet restriction and regular exercise. Unfortunately there are no other drugs in any branch of medicine which control blood sugar. So my suggestion is to continue present treatment. I have seen patients in my practice who stopped modern medicine and started other therapies and have come back with exceptionally high blood sugar. Now the choice is yours.

Is watermelon can be taken in diabetes can sugarfree compound can be taken as substitute.
lybrate-user, Water melon can be consumed by a person with diabetes. But daily intake should not exceed about 100 g, that too with strict blood glucose control. Sugar free tablets can be used as a substitute for sugar. However, none of the sugar substitutes are very safe. Regular use of these compounds tends to increase craving for sweets. Long term usage is also no considered safe enough. Thanks.

Instead of self treating yourself please take correct medical advice. You need to be started on medications for diabetes so please consult a endocrinologist and also for BP consult a cardiologist, so that after proper investigations medications can be started. And eat healthy diet, avoid alcohol, smoking and high salty diet. Exercise daily for 40-45 mins.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The surgery being talked about is actually for treating excess obesity. Thsese procedures are called as "Bariatric surgery" Usually performed in patients who are excessively obese (BMI above 40 kgs/M2).In some of these patients following the operation there is a major weight loss, which could be 30 to 50 kgs or even more depending upon earlier weight. This results in the cure of diabetes if the disease about 5 years old or less at the time of surgery. In others there is a better control achieved on blood glucose, because of loss of aft there is reduced insulin resistance. Plus the procedure reduces total food intake to a fraction of what was earlier. This itself helps blood glucose reduction. Thanks.
