Having a first degree relative with diabetes does indeed increase your chances of developing the same. But you can avoid it by following a healthy lifestyle. Eat and sleep on time avoid heavy meals at one time with long periods of fasting between 2 meals avoid/minimise fast food/oily food/ bakery products exercise regularly or atleast try to be more active. Eg walk instead of travelling by vehicle for short distances, use the stairs instead of lift drink more water eat more of fresh fruits and vegetables quit smoking in case you do.

Endocrinologist,
What are the precautions for a pregnant lady having diabetes.?
Please let me know if the person is already a diabetic and then has become pregnant or during the course of pregnancy she has developed it. Whatever may be the situation, it is important to maintain blood glucose level between 90 - 120 mg / 100ml at any time. So patient has to be on insulin injection. Strict sugar control is a must to avoid all the complications of diabetes in pregnancy. Proper diet and to meet increased needs of the mother and baby plus correct dose of insulin are the major things to be concentrated.

Dear sir/madam, I want some suggestion. Which vegitables or which type of food I should take to prevent the high production of uric acid. Because I had a very hard pain in my gouts due to excess of uric acid in my body.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
Very pertinent question. Please tell and educate your friends about gout and food. 1) please do not take any uricosuric medicines for gout during acute inflammatory stage. These medicines itself may flare up gout. Only nsaids to reduce inflammation. 2) diets and dos nad donts: although there are no foods that do not contain uric acid itself, people who are concerned with reducing the level of uric acid in their body should know which foods contain high levels of purine. A) take plenty of oral fluid at least 3 - 4 liters per day. It helps to wash away uric acid from your systems through kidney and prevents to form crystals and precipitate in synovial cavities of the joints. Urinary alkalinisation (making urine alkaline) - promotes uric acid solubility. B) avoid all animal proteins (particularly red meat) and stop taking any animal organs like liver, kidneys etc. Occasional (avoiding is good) small fishes and small amount of chicken is allowed. C) avoid all vegetable seed particularly - spinach, tomato, brinjal, pulses etc. Strain or separate it out before cooking. Though beans are also contains purine but less. Beans in moderate quantity and soybeans do not harm that much. D) avoid bread - many bread products have yeast, a main ingredient that has excessive quantities of purine. Yeast creates a hostile environment in the body by disrupting its acidity. You could develop kidney stones and bladder problems. Chapati is best alternative. E) avoid asparagus and mushrooms - because of high uric acid content. F) avoid high oxalate containing food - that facilitates formation of kidney stone in presence of uric acid. G) a higher level of consumption of dairy products is associated with a decreased risk. H) moderate intake of purine-rich vegetables or protein is not associated with an increased risk of gout. Remember - a raised blood urate (hyperuricaemia) with no symptoms does not mean a patient will inevitably develop gout. A medicine thiazide diuretic raises uric acid level, may not produce gout. If gout develops however then it is prudent to stop thiazide. Raised uric acid is associated with other factors such as hypertension, dehydration, hyperlipidaemia there is also a theoretical risk of hyperuricaemia with low carbohydrate diets, due to higher protein content. Hope this shall be helpful. Please let me know whether it has enriched you.

Yes 230 ppbs is high. Get your hba1c done. You can either add metformin or gliptins to take care of you post prandial high sugars. Erectile dysfunction can be due to several causes like nervous, psychological, atherosclerotic related which needs to evaluated via counselling, doppler and medication. First get your sugar under control.

Sweet potato is resistant starch and it is extremely good for a diabetic patient. Whenever you are doing this do not eat any rice or roti along with it. Preferably get a plan for nutrition so that you donot overdo your starches. Mutton is a good source of protein. So if you do lean mutton once a week it is perfectly fine.

Swetaji, looking at your weight and height your bmi is only 20.99 kg/m2, which is good. There is no need to worry about the weight. As regards tsh levels during pregnancy and even to conceive, recommended levels are about 2 milli units to 2.4 milli units. So before deciding about conception, tsh has to be brought down. Present level will not allow conception.

Hye. Thankyou for your query. Weight gain is dependent on many factors like genetics, diet and exercise routine. There is no short cut to gain weight fast. A weight gain supplement cannot just help you to gain muscle and add calories to your body. In order for your body to gain calories, it is important to eat much food. Most supplements are also added with appetizers that may help boost your craving for foods. With the aid of the appetite boosters, your body will want to eat more foods and accumulate more fats. This is why taking supplementation in isolation does not really work. Whatever you have gained, you could have managed with a well planned diet as well. For any supplement to even help, you need to have a calorie, protein, nutrient dense diet first. Just taking supplement thrice a day a pill will not help because it's just fulfilling your basic needs. Moreover, the moment you discontinue the supplement you will lose all the weight. It must be understood that muscles will not grow big if you will not work on it. It is important to engage oneself into exercises which are focused on muscle growth along with a healthy diet. With lots and lots of supplements for gaining weight that are in the market, it is better for you to work on your diet and exercise routine first rather than depending on the weight gain supplements' placebo promises. Working out your muscles can greatly help in growing your body and gain weight in the process. Let the supplement work as an additional nutrition for your body, not the only nutrition. That's why they are called supplements.
