Mr. Lybrate-user, from the thyroid test results, it is clear she does not have any problem with that gland. Alopecia areata is a condition which a dermatologist should be able to help out. Also look at her cbc (total blood cell count), to see if she has anemia. You may give vitamin d 3 supplement. Also give zinc supplement. Some times zinc deficiency also leads to hair loss. Thanks.

My father has diabetes how can he lower his blood sugar level?

My father has diabetes how can he lower his blood sugar level?
Diabetes is an imbalance of carbohydrate metabolism. Blood sugar depends on what you eat, at what time n in how much quantity. So a controlled n calculated carbohydrate intake is utmost important. So is d type of carbohydrate. Ie simple or complex. Exercise improves d functioning capacity of insulin. So regular physical activity, advised by your dr, in accordance to the cardiac status etc, is a must. But simple things like avoiding to sit / lie down immediately post meals, n having a stroll post meals go a long way to control post meal blood sugars. Stay healthy, stay blessed.

As a nutritiion expert, I suggest some good nutritional food and supplements. Which helps to control and cure the diabetes. 1. Ask her to regularly walk during morning hours, if she can. 2. Try to avoid white rice and heavy carbohydrates. 3. Mole powder food, wheat will keep you active without adding any carbohydrates. 4. Drink more water in a day. 2 to 3 liters. 5. Add more fruits into your diet, fruits will give vitamins and minerals which keeps the body active for long hours. 6. Add protein sources like wheat, soya, egg whites. 7. Add fish into her diet. Twice a week.

4 simple ways to manage diabetic peripheral neuropathy (dpn)

You're probably familiar with diabetic peripheral neuropathy (dpn), which is nerve damage that?s caused by chronic high blood sugar. Dpn tends to be the most common complication of diabetes. Some of its symptoms include a tingling or burning sensation, difficulty walking, and numbness, especially in your feet and toes. If left untreated, dpn can eventually lead to amputation.
while dpn seems to be a growing problem within the african-american community, here are four ways to keep your dpn under control.

1. Don?t smoke.
ever notice how ?don?t smoke? is always somewhere on these types of lists? well, there?s a good reason for it. When you smoke, your arteries narrow and harden, reducing the amount of blood flow to your legs and feet, which makes it more difficult for wounds to heal.
2. Keep your blood sugar levels in check.
if you?re a diabetic, then you already know how important it is to monitor your blood sugar levels. When you have dpn, inconsistent blood sugar levels put you at risk for nerve damage, which can ultimately lead to amputation.
3. Take good care of your feet.
when you have dpn, it?s a definite must that you thoroughly wash and dry your feet on a daily basis. Also, always make sure that your shoes are well-fitted and that your socks are clean and dry. Be sure to trim your toenails straight across ? or have them trimmed by a professional. Lastly, stay away from any antiseptic products and sharp tools, including nail files, as they may cause injury and further damage.
4. Communicate with your doctor.
inspect your feet regularly. If you notice anything unusual, such as a foot injury that?s taking longer to heal than normal, inform your doctor right away! ask me privately here

How to control diabetes?

Dietitian/Nutritionist,
How to control diabetes?
Do let me know your hba1c value? also you need to provide me your daily food intake details. There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed: take high fiber prescribed diet which includes soluble fibre like apple, isabgol etc. Get more physical activity. eat a balanced diet which includes whole grains and excludes all refined products like maida as prescribed. if you're overweight, diabetes prevention may hinge on weight loss. Every pound you lose can improve your health, and you may be surprised by how much. Participants in one large study who lost a modest amount of weight around 7 percent of initial body weight and exercised regularly reduced the risk of developing diabetes by almost 60 percent.

Since he has already suffered from pancreatitis and half of the pancreas is already removed, he should stop taking alcohol totally other wise he will have serious problem. Let him attend alcoholic anonymous programme near to your locality, where they conduct various counselling sessions with a group of alcoholic to get rid of alcohol. Many people have benefited by attending the programme. Consult physician for further advice.
