lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. A person in pre-diabetes state has to adapt a modified lifestyle, if he wants to postpone developing diabetes or preventing it. That means he should refrain from sweets, pastries, bakery items, foods made from maida, fruits like mango, banana, chikkoo, grapes. Dark chocolate is supposed to be good but without sugar in it. In your case with a BMI of 28.4 kgs/M2 (normal <23 kgs/M2), with a good deal of excess weight, you need to be more careful. Reason being one of the main cause for precipitating diabetes is excess weight second is inactivity. Thanks.

BHMS
Homeopath,
My name is ankit and I am 22 years old and I am suffering from diabetes. Please suggest some remedies.
Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. However, the patient does not need to take medicine unless his/her post. Prandial blood sugar level reaches 200. If post. Prandial blood sugar level reaches 200 then patient can take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnema sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Along with intake of medicines the patient need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. In order to decrease the intake of carbohydrate in diet the patient should avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

CURE INFERTILITY WITH THE HELP OF AYURVEDA

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Sexologist, Delhi
When a couple is not able to conceive after a year of regular sex on their fertile days (without contraceptives), they are said to be infertile for some reason. Infertility can be cured although some of the problems are difficult to treat especially when the mother is over the age of 35 years. Stressed modern life and an increased use of chemicals and pesticides in our food is a huge cause of infertility in both men and women.

There are several herbal treatments available to help infertile couples and one such treatment is known as Ayurveda.

Ayurveda highlights the importance of a healthy body of the woman even before conception. Dried asparagus is used in the preparation of Ayurveda and it contains proteins, carbohydrates, natural steroids, and polysaccaroids. Infertile couples can use its tonic that revitalizes their reproductive system. This herb has proven extremely useful in the treatment of male side fertility problems i.e. premature ejaculation, impotence, lower sperm count, or less motile sperms. Visiting a reputable infertility clinic (link to sablok clinic goes here) will help you a lot.

Ayurveda is highly effective for female fertility problems and its regular use prepares a woman’s body for conception. Reproductive strength of the couple actually depends on the fitness of reproductive tissues in both man and woman. The woman releases her ovum as a result of her menstrual cycle while a man releases his semen (containing sperms) when his reproductive system receives stimulation from the environment. The reproductive cycle needs energy that the body gets from the digestion of food intake. As a result, when a person eats healthy food, he is likely to acquire a stronger body and powerful reproductive sperms, hence resulting in the production of healthy babies.

Ayurveda fertility treatment assumes the fertility to be the result of the transformation of sperm and egg and if there is any hindrance in the way, the process doesn’t occur. This process will not initiate unless it is rejuvenated by ensuring the health and strength of both egg and sperm. Ayurveda experts suggest that there are certain foods that strengthen the reproductive system better than others. These foods include milk, pomegranate, almonds, pumpkin, honey, and sesame seeds. Ayurveda also suggests a detoxification program that involves simple eating and a regular oil massage. The treatment emphasizes eating khichdi on daily basis as it considers it to be the best healing food. Besides khichdi, the patient should take spice tea to clear toxins in his or her body. Daily massage of sesame oil also helps in conception as it dilates the skin of the patient.

Ayurveda treatment specialists also recommend that the environment and preparation of making love and having sex is also important. It is necessary to set a background that contains an aromatic and romantic ambiance over a soothing and relaxing couch or bed. This union is very important in that two forces are going to merge together to produce a new life. Peace of mind is necessary to achieve success in the process. For more details you can contact us at our helpline number.

Mr Sanjeeb, I need to know actual numbers like fasting, PP sugar levels, HbA1c%, drugs being taken with dosage, dietary pattern and extent of exercise done daily, to give any kind of opinion. So please give all those details and better if you come in a private conversation where I can be very specific. In the mean time avoid sweets, direct sugar, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits about 100 g a day. Exercise daily for at least one hour. This will help in achieving better sugar control.

My doctor told me to get TSH test done for me. I am diabetic and I feel very low during working hours. I am taking diabetes medicine, still I feel lots of dizziness during the day. Doctor told me to get TSH test done. However, some family friends told me that thyroid disorders exist only in females. I am bit confused that should I go for thyroid treatment or not. Please suggest.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
General Physician, Delhi
Dear lybrate-user, diabetes is an autoimmune disease that means your own body attacks the cells that produce insulin. Similarly thyroid disease is also an autoimmune disease. And it has been found that people who have diabetes are at higher risk of having thyroid disease. As for the other part it is false that only women have thyroid disease, even men can have thyroid disease. So follow your doctors advice and get your thyroid profile done. However whether you have thyroid disease or not, can only be ascertained when your report comes.

Can diabetic patients eat sweets made with'sugar free or is it just as bad as normal sugar based sweets for them?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Can diabetic patients eat sweets made with'sugar free or is it just as bad as normal sugar based sweets for them?
For any diabetic, having sugar-free foods is the only way to give in to a sweet tooth. With less than 0.5 grams per serving, these treats when had in moderation can satisfy the craving for sweets without sending your blood sugar levels shooting up. Sugar causes a spike in natural insulin levels, a great threat for diabetic patients. These artificial sweeteners are a great alternative, allowing you to enjoy the occasional treat without the drawbacks of usual desserts. They don?t cause a sudden rise in blood sugar levels like authentic sweets and are great for your teeth. Also, a few sugar-free candies can control hunger cravings and you can easily savour the nutritional benefits of chocolates without he added sugar in it. Chocolates are great for your heart and also work as antioxidants, and the sugar-free varieties are ideal for diabetic patients. Substitutes like Splenda, Sugar Free, Equal and Stevia are low in sugar and calories and can be used in place of sugar in all dessert recipes. DISADVANTAGES OF SUSAR FREE FOOD There cannot be advantages without disadvantages, and sugar-free foods are no exception. Most sugar-free foods are free of natural sugar, but that doesn?t mean they are free of calories too. Having too many calories can be dangerous for any diabetic, since their body doesn?t produce normal levels of insulin and desserts that are high in fat content are always a threat. The problem greatly arises because most diabetics assume the desserts and candies to be ?sugar-free? and tend to overindulge. And sometimes these sugar-free foods contribute to hundreds of calories consumed by the diabetic patient, which again sends their blood sugar levels soaring. It is essential to understand that anything processed or artificial cannot be good for you if consumed in large amounts. Having halwas made with sugar-free sweeteners or heavy cakes and pastries that claim to be sugar-free are not a good idea. And then there?s always the fear that some artificial sweeteners have carcinogens in them. Reports suggest that aspartame found in Sugar Free and Equal can give you headaches, cause bloat and even result in seizures. Acesulfame-K that is used in most sugar-free foods can cause cancer as well as tumors. Studies are yet to decide whether the cons of sugar-free foods outweigh the pros. Although most artificial sweeteners like aspartame, Stevia and sucralose have been approved by the FDA for daily consumption, it is best to be cautious. As always, moderation is the key to living a happy life with diabetes.

Thanks for the query. Thyroid hormone deficiencey called as hypothyroidism is is a well known problem leading to excess weight gain. To over come this one needs to star treatment with the hormone levothyroxine. Since you have complained about weight gain during last few months, it is essential for you to start treatment right away. Hence if interested come back with following details like T4, T3 & TSH values, weight and height and any other symptoms being felt. Based on those details I will be able to guide in controlling the condition and regaining your original weight. You will have to come in a private conversation so that I will be able to prescribe the drugs needed and to give other specific advise. In this communication only general guidelines can be given. Do not neglect as you are very young and not treating this condition can cause multiple problems including infertility. Thanks.

lybrate-user, Diabetes even if not in very good control is unlikely to cause an increase in menstrual cycle. It is better if you get a thyroid assay done and see if there is any problem with it. Plus it is good to consult a local gynecologist. Thanks.
