Is Anxiety And stress some how increases blood sugar level even if a person is not suffering diabetics?
Anxiety and stress can have an impact on your insulin levels, achyut as when you are stressed your body is trying to metabolise the food faster to provide the body with the energy quicker. This can lead to disbetes like symptoms. It is best to address stress-causing factors in your life at the earliest and to readjust your diet and exercise regimen. Also get a full body check up done once every year. If you haven't done on e this year now might be a good time to do it. Good luck.

My wife have hypothyroidism gave me some proper curable medicine to cure it and to make family planning.
Mr Rajesh, If she has hypothyroidism then it should be controlled by taking thyroxine tablets in proper dosage and that too for life time. The dose depends on body weight and TSH level. If she wants to become pregnant, then it more important that TSH level has to be brought down to just around 2 milli units/ ml. This is the only way.

Is there a relationship between diabetes and foot corn?  My friend is diabetic and he often gets corn in the foot.
Diabetes reduces blood supply to the lower extremities, in addition due to diabetic neuropathy sensation also is affected. This can lead to a number of problems with feet. One of them could be repeated corns if ill fitting foot wear are worn or pressure points develop on the soles. Therefore he should use properly fitting foot wear, have a strict sugar control and examine the feet daily and seek advise if any problem arises.

Hello, weight reduction is a tough task. Following things need to be concentrated: 1) your caloric intake has to be strictly planned based on your ideal body weight (ibw) which should be 50 kg and level of physical exercise. 2) avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries, 3) daily exercise schedule should be for more than 1 hour, should include aerobic activity for 20 minutes, stretching and brisk walking 4) set a target of loosing 2 - 3 kgs per month. By reducing 550 k calories per day you can cut 1/2 a kg weight per week, along with above mentioned physical activity. 5) there is no need to increase the dose of thyronorm now, but a periodic tsh levels check should be done.

Take diet for hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, Avoid few foods in hypothroidism i.e. caffeine products tea,coffee, tabcco, alcohol / wine , kale, broccoli, spinach, mustard green, cabbage, turnip, millet, cassava, linseeds, pine nuts, soy products as soy milk, tofu, soybeans, soy souce, also avoid stress.

Which is the best meal for sugar patients, and what exercise do they prefer to maintain the sugar.
Avoid sugar, honey, jaggery, deep fried items, sweets and confectionery. Plenty of fresh vegetables, salads, pulses & legumes, fresh fruits, dried fruits & nuts are all very helpful. Daily brisk walking for 45 minutes is very helpful.

Strict diet control. Stop all class II protein intake like yellow pulses, spinach, cabbage, cheese, soya. No red meat. Take a mild pain killer for a few days for ankle pain. Repeat uric acid after 2 weeks. If still high consult an orthopedic surgeon.

Mr. lybrate-user, Your blood glucose levels are really very well maintained and even HbA1c%. I am not very sure whether you actually are diabetic. Criteria for diagnosing diabetes are: 1) Normal: FBS 70 to 110 mg, PP <140 mg / 100 ml & HbA1c% <5.9 2) Pre-diabetes: FBS 108 to 125 mg, PP 141 - 199 mg & HbA1c%5.9 to 6.4. 3) Diabetes:FBS 126 mg and above, PP 200 mg and above & HbA1c % 6.5 and above. You may be in a pre-diabetes stage, which can be reversed to normal or one can prevent or delay progressing it to diabetes, by adapting a modified lifestyle. Which means avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks, sweet corn syrup containing food products and highly processed foods. Maintain normal weight. Waist not more than 90 cms. Thanks.
