lybrate-user, Please get your thyroid assay and blood glucose tested. If TSH level is below 2mU/L, then conception can occur and probably miscarriage may not occur. If you have PCOD please consult your gynecologist and then decide. But it is also very important to see if you have diabetes or hypothyroidism before a pregnancy is planned .Thanks.

How to control diabetes and blood pleasure. What type of food we have to consume, what type of exercise we have to do. Do we have cure for sure or no.

How to control diabetes and blood pleasure. What type of food we have to consume, what type of exercise we have to do...
Mr. Lybrate-user, first thing to be clarified is that essential hypertension (high bp) and diabetes are not curable, both can only be controlled effectively by proper medication, diet control and regular exercise. Treatment has to go on for lifetime. To control high blood glucose following things are to done: 1) appropriate medicines based on fasting, pp glucose levels and hba1c%, to be taken regularly, 2) restricted diet providing exact calories based on ideal body weight, glucose levels and extent of daily exercise, 3) regular exercise for at least 1 hour a day, to keep weight in check and as near as normal, 4) avoid deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks, fructose corn syrup containing products, 5) refrain from alcohol and smoking. For controlling bp apartfrom all above you have to reduce salt intake to about 2 to 3 g a day. Avoid all highly processed foods. As regards exercise any exercise is good, simplest of option is brisk walking for 1 hour a day at least 5 days a week. If one can do a bit heavier exercise then it is welcome. Basically both these conditions need following a modified lifestyle along with medication.

I have diabetes problem, so which medicines will be suitable for me in this age? Whether homeopathic or allopathic?

I have diabetes problem, so which medicines will be suitable for me in this age? Whether homeopathic or allopathic?
Blood glucose - homeopathic medicine is safe and effective for any age, for this you can contact me through lybrate. And you can follow the diet chart its helps to maintain blood glucose level and exercise help to increase metabolism - walking, jogging, cycling, meditation, yoga etc etc and good sleep. Diabetes diet for indians- should have the ratio of 60: 20: 20 for carbs, fats and proteins. Per day calorie intake should be between 1, 500-1, 800 calories with a proportion of 60: 20: 20 between carbohydrates, fats and proteins, respectively. He adds that a diabetes diet should" have at least two seasonal fruits and three vegetables in a diet plan. Though dry fruits may seem like a healthy snack, it is not a good option for diabetics, as the fructose can spike your sugar level. Go for fresh fruits rather than dry fruits for diabetes control (but there are some restrictions. We'll come to it). But you can still opt for nuts as a healthy snack. For homeopathic treatment you can contact me through lybrate. Diabetes diet for indians: - one teaspoon of methi seeds soaked overnight in 100 ml of water is very effective in controlling diabetes. - drink tomato juice with salt and pepper every morning on an empty stomach. - intake of 6 almonds (soaked overnight) is also helpful in keeping a check on diabetes. Some major diabetes diet pointers that one should follow at home or at a restaurant. Whole grains, oats, channa atta, millets and other high fibre foods should be included in the meals. If one feels like consuming pasta or noodles, it should always be accompanied with vegetable/sprouts. Milk is the right combination of carbohydrates and proteins and helps control blood sugar levels. Two servings of milk in a daily diet is a good option. Diabetes control: diabetic diet tips high fibre vegetables such as peas, beans, broccoli and spinach /leafy vegetables should be included in one's diet. Also, pulses with husk and sprouts are a healthy option and should be part of the diet. Pulses are important in the diet as their effect on blood glucose is less than that of most other carbohydrate containing foods. Vegetables rich in fibre help lowering down the blood sugar levels and thus are healthy. Good fats such as omega-3 and monounsaturated fats (mufa) should be consumed as they are good for the body. Natural sources for these are canola oil, flax seed oil, fatty fish and nuts. These are also low in cholesterol and are trans fat free. Fruits high in fibre such as papaya, apple, orange, pear and guava should be consumed. Mangoes, bananas, and grapes contain high sugar; therefore these fruits should be consumed lesser than the others. Small frequent meals: a large meal gives rise to higher blood sugar in one's body, therefore it is essential to take small frequent meals to prevent both higher and very low blood sugar values and keep them constant. Small in between snacks can be dhokla, fruit, high fibre cookies, butter milk, yogurt, upma/poha with vegetables etc. A person with diabetes should follow a diet which is low in carbohydrates, high in fibre and contains adequate amounts of proteins, vitamins and minerals; and avoid fatty foods and sweets. He/she should also take frequent small meals (5 meals pattern). What not to do: artificial sweeteners can be used in cakes and sweets for diabetic people (in moderation). Have lots of fluid. Limit intake of alcohol. Non - vegetarian in non-vegetarian diet, seafood and chicken can be taken rather than red meat as red meat contains higher amount of saturated fats. Also, patients with high cholesterol should avoid egg yolk and red meat. The diabetes diet for indians includes carbohydrates, proteins and fats. As always, a balanced and planned diet can build and improve personal health. A controlled diabetes diet may seem like a drag and bore, but a good cook can add life to a diet.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
You are overweight. This swelling is there for 15/20 years unchanged. It appears to be harmless and not growing. Do you have any such swelling over your trunk and limbs? Is the swelling hard and not reducible on pressure with finger? better do not nurture your doubt in your mind, consult a surgeon he shall be able to give you right diagnosis and advice.
