General Physician,
How to use eucalyptus oil for diabetes. Is it really useful. Is it goo for blood pressure also.
Eucalyptus oil, the report continues, should not be taken by mouth at full strength but THE DILUTED FORM MAY BE TAKEN ORALLY "for pain, and swelling (inflammation) of respiratory tract mucous membranes, coughs, bronchitis, pain and inflammation, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and respiratory infections. A 3.5-milliliter dose of undiluted eucalyptus oil can be fatal. Whether it is taken topically or orally, people who use a toxic amount of this oil may experience a wide array of symptoms, including abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness or muscle weakness.

Diabetes - Understanding The Relation Between Visceral Fat and Blood Sugar levels!

Diabetes - Understanding The Relation Between Visceral Fat and Blood Sugar levels!

Diabetes, the new-age disease, has assumed the name of a modern epidemic. With changes in foods and physical activity being the main drivers of its increased incidence. The age of onset is lowering, the severity of the disease is increasing, complications are becoming severe. It is assuming dangerous proportions. People with diabetes are constantly on the watch before eating anything.

How does diabetes happen? There are two sides to it.
The body needs energy for every single activity that it does from moving a finger to smiling. The food that we eat contains sugar and is the main source of this energy. As the amount of food provided increases, there is more amount of energy (sugar) than required. The body converts this to fat and stores it as visceral fat

Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas, which sends signals to the body to absorb the blood sugar from the bloodstream. Two things can happen there could be less insulin produced, so there is more sugar in the blood. Secondly, there could be what is known as insulin resistance, where the tissues do not recognise insulin and do not absorb the sugar for storage. In both cases, the blood sugar levels go up, leading to increased incidence of diabetes. On the other hand, the extra sugar that is absorbed is converted into fat by the body and stored. The visceral fat, which is fat in the subcutaneous layers of the skin, is all the extra sugar that is consumed.

Vicious cycle:

  1. More sugar consumed, leads to more blood sugars
  2. More sugar consumed, leads to more visceral fat, as the body only requires so much energy for regular activities
  3. When engaged in physical exercise, this visceral fat accumulation is reduced, as more energy is required for exercise
  4. With reduced exercise, the result is increased visceral fat and higher sugar levels
  5. Insulin resistance adds to this effect of higher sugar levels
  6. With processed/packed/refined foods being consumed widely, the amount of visceral fat is on the rise. They also lead to insulin resistance.
  7. So, while on one hand, the direct sugar levels are high, on the other, the body’s natural response to control sugar is also impaired
  8. To manage both, a three-pronged approach is essential – reduce refined foods, improve fiber intake, and improve exercise
  9. A diet rich in whole fiber does not lead to as much sugar level increase or fat formation
  10. A diet rich in whole grains, vegetables, dairy, and fat is preferable to beat this cycle along with an active exercise regime
  11. Monitoring sugar levels and insulin resistance is a must until they are brought under control. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cardiologist.

BHMS
Homeopath,
I have suffering from uric acid problem. My label is 6.0.I have healed pain. Advise how to reduce it.
Dear lybrate user, protein is one of the most vital nutritional substances which are required for human body. Almost every high protein diet contains purine. This purine produces uric acid on oxidation. Excess uric acid is accumulated at the joints of human beings as urate salts. This accumulation of urate salts lead to pain & swelling of those affected joints & this condition is clinically known as gout. You should avoid high protein rich diet like mutton, chicken, beef, eggs, sea fish, spinach, garden pea, tomato, lentils etc. Also you need to take homoeopathic mother tincture urtica urens q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to dissolve the accumulated excess urate salts from the joints.

Bhuvanaji, if your mother diabetes and if it has been detected late in life, then it is most likely to t2 dm. This is a familial condition, meaning if parents have it, then children are likely to get it. But it is also a preventable disease. You can prevent it by adapting a modified life style, which means: regular exercise for more than 1 hour a day, maintaining normal weight, taking a balanced and restricted diet, giving exact calories based on ideal body weight and extent of daily exercise. Plus avoiding too much of sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Consuming more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Refraining form alcohol and smoking. Another common type of diabetes is t1 seen usually in children, where patients require insulin injection for survival and treatment.

Foods That You Should Avoid if You Are Diabetic

Foods That You Should Avoid if You Are Diabetic

Food and diabetes do not go hand in hand. If you are a foodie and if you are diabetic, then you have tough luck. When afflicted with diabetes, the most basic medicine to control it is your diet. There are certain foods, which will help you bring diabetes in control and certain foods, which you have to avoid if you don't want the sugar level to rise beyond necessary. It is extremely important to keep a check on what you eat when you are afflicted with the diabetic condition.

Here are a few items which you should avoid in case you are diabetic:

  1. Fruit beverages: You might think that if the beverages are fruit based, then they are safe to be had; incorrect. Fruit beverages contain a lot of hidden added sugar. They are also high in calories, which again are harmful. The best way to judge a fruit beverage is by reading labels on the bottles. You will get your information there and it will be easier for you to judge which beverage you might have.
  2. French fries: French fries may be extremely tasty, but they are also extremely bad for your health, especially if you are diabetic. They are full of saturated fat, sodium, calories and too much of carbohydrates. Even though most of the restaurants claim that the fries are trans fat free, it still isn't healthy for you at all.
  3. Fried chicken: Fried chicken is another food item you can devour, but even this is very harmful. Although chicken is a good source of protein, frying it adds an unhealthy amount of carbohydrates, calories, fats and sodium. These added components make this healthy source of protein extremely unhealthy.
  4. Hamburgers: Hamburgers are full of saturated fat, which leads to a high level of cholesterol. It contains a huge amount of cheese, which supplies your body with a huge amount of calories. Although you do need 7% of saturated fats, hamburgers usually give you much more than the required amount.
  5. Milk shakes: Milk shakes are loaded with sugars and calories and they might also have hidden trans-fat. Not only does it increase your sugar level, it also makes your heart suffer.

Report of pp urine may not be correct. Get it rechecked. If your pp blood sugar is 128 do not worry about urine sugar. You are not a diabetic.

What is an ideal diet for ulcerative colitis? I heard cabbage juice is a good option to cure uc. But I have doubt whether any side effects for this cabbage juice especially thyroid function?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
People with uc should just try to eat a well-balanced diet whenever possible. This should include a variety of foods: lean meat, fish, and poultry low-fat dairy products bread, cereal, and whole grains fruits and vegetables healthy fats such as vegetable oils keep a food diary to help you figure out which foods cause problems for you and whether or not you're getting enough nutrients. If you're losing weight because of your ulcerative colitis, try eating five or six small meals and snacks during the day instead of two or three large meals. When you have chronic diarrhea, drink plenty of water or other fluids to stay hydrated. A dietitian can come up with a diet that meets your calorie and nutrient needs. Before you take any dietary supplements, talk to your doctor or ask me privately.

I had done blood test for thyroid on Sep 11 2017 .the results r as below: T3: 139.2 ng/DL T4: 8.64 ugh/DL Ultra TSH: 15.49 IU/ml, Kindly provide some guidance related to my report what medications should I do and is it serious.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. TSH 15.49 mU/L is suggestive of hypothyroidism. This needs to be treated with adequate dose of levothyroxine. TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms of hypothyroidism are in check. Plus looking at your weight and height it is clear that with a BMI of 28.125 kgs/M2, you are overweight. Your ideal body weight should be 60 kg. Hypothyroidism causes rapid weight gain. So you will have to exercise daily for over 1 hour and also take a restricted diet. You will have to avoid soy beans and soy containing products. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for making chapati and roti. If you have any doubts please do come back. Thanks.

Mr Sanjay, All the three conditions need to be in proper control with appropriate drugs, then only the patient is in good health and shape.For diabetes and hypertension strict control of blood sugar and blood pressure is very essential. Unless all the details are made available like fasting and PP sugar levels, HbA1c%, BP readings, weight and height, drugs being taken with dosage and dietary pattern and amount of exercise done daily, it is difficult for me to give any specific suggestions. Anxious feeling is mainly due to improper control of the condition.. Apart from taking proper medications she should take a restricted diet, providing exact calories based on her ideal body weight, sugar levels, and extent of exercise. Should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Consume good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day) . Her salt intake has to be restricted to 2.3 g a day. Avoid pickles and papad . Should walk for at least 45 minutes a day. This routine has to be continuously followed. If you want any specific advice then please come in a private conversation, where i can give specific suggestions.
