Hi drink some bitter gourd juice on an empty stomach each morning. First remove the seeds of two to three bitter gourds and use a juicer to extract the juice. Add some water and then drink it. Follow this treatment daily in the morning for at least two months. Take pranacharya diabeto and shilajeet capsule twice a day with water. Take vasant kusumakar ras twice a day. Avoid sweets. Take small meals in less time interval. Do pranayama early morning. Avoid alcohol consumption.

It needs to be known whether the blood sugar levels quoted by you are with the dose of glycomet or without it. If these levels are without medicine on the day of test, then with medicine there is a possibility of further lowering of sugar levels causing hypoglycaemia. That may be the reason behind your falling on the road and feeling of exhaustion. You may consult privately with details of your reports.

Syedji, If patient has diabetes then immediate treatment initiation is a must. To bring diabetes in control patient should maintain fasting sugar nearer 100 mg and PP around 150 to 160 mg and HbA1c<7%. This can be achieved by proper drug treatment, diet control and exercise. plus time to time blood sugar check up also needs to be done like initially once a week or once in 15 days. If you are looking foe specific guidance it will be better if you come ina private conversation, where I can be very specific.

Please suggest diet plan for hyperthyroidism. Continuous weight loss. Currently weight is 46 kg. M 28 years old.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Dietary recommendations: Avoid foods high in iodine, such as seafood, iodised salt, eggs, curd, and milk. Eat cruciferous vegetables like cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli, preferably raw. Green leafy vegetables like mustard greens, spinach and kale are believed to depress the function of your thyroid. You have to get thyroid in good control and eat balanced diet to gain weight.

What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr Mukesh, Hashimoto's thyroiditis is an autoimmune disease, where there are anti bodies formed against thyroxine secreting cells, resulting in deficiency of thyroxine and hypothyroidism. In this condition Iodine has no role. Treatment is to supplement thyroxine from outside as tablets.

Can a diabetic have tea, an article says having tea reduces diabetes and stroke by 37%. Is it true.

Can a diabetic have tea, an article says having tea reduces diabetes and stroke by 37%. Is it true.
Mr. lybrate-user, A person with diabetes can definitely take tea, but without sugar, as sugar adds extra calories. One can take about 2 to 3 cups in a day, but too much is not good as it does stimulate stomach acid secretion. Some reports keep cropping up on tea and coffee about their benefits, harms etc. Best is to ignor them, and just take a moderate quantity per day. Thanks.

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)

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.

What we can eat a healthy food for our health and control cholesterol and diabetes? Please help me.

What we can eat a healthy food for our health and control cholesterol and diabetes? Please help me.
a healthy control of blood sugars and cholesterol is not possible only with healthy food. We doctors advocate what is called as healthy lifestyle. Which is a combination of good food, exercise and a calm and healthy mind also. Now for healthy food, you need to have balanced diet. But if you're diabetic and have high cholesterol then you need to cut down your carbohydrate and sugar intake. I. E reduce rice, and eat things with high fiber like whole wheat, maize, ragi etc. Your protein intake must also be good. But instead of non veg which would increase your cholesterol, take egg whites, (the yellow part is very high in cholesterol), germinated pulses are high in protein. Also soya. Reduce or avoid fried food and junk food and sweets and carbonated sweetened drinks like soda, cola etc. Oil can also be changed to olive oil as it is low in cholesterol. Eat plenty of raw fruits and vegetables. Diabetics are advised to avoid bananas, mangoes, grapes, but apples with skin on, oranges and mosambi are very good. Raw vegetables and plenty of green leafy vegetables can be taken make sure you exercise at least thirty minutes a day. A walk of fifteen to thirty minutes after food would reduce your blood sugar almost as much as a tablet. Try to meditate at least ten minutes in a day.

Hi, First, get thorough check of your whole body annually (once every year) from a reliable hospital to rule out any medical condition. Otherwise for staying fit: We need make few changes in our life to stay fit and healthy (if there is no medical condition): - Just walking alone is a very beneficial exercise which can help you stay in shape, feel more energetic, and get healthy. Always take stairs rather than taking an elevator. -Standing while you work can help your body get more activity than if you were just sitting down. Spend at least some of your work day standing instead of sitting in order to help your blood flow and maintain your muscles. -Do more chores. Lots of household chores actually involve a lot of exercise and being better about doing chores can be a great way for you to fit activity and exercise into your day. -Aim to exercise for a total of 30 minutes per day and you’ll easily be able to maintain your fitness level. -Some exercises will be more efficient than others, and choosing these more efficient exercises means that the small amount of time that you do spend exercising will really count. Try to choose exercises that focus on your core muscles, since your legs and arms can get activity through daily activities like lifting bags of groceries and walking a longer distance from your car. Try squats, planks, burpees. -Get indulge into some activity at home like riding a bicycle, swimming, playing active games with your kids. -Eating right. Cut out unhealthy fats and take in healthy fats. The easiest way to identify unhealthy fats is to look for “solid” fats, or fats that are solid at room temperature. Get plenty of protein. Protein will help you maintain your muscles and also give you the energetic feeling that you may be missing now that you’re getting less exercise. Good protein sources include skinless chicken, salmon, sardines, almonds, walnuts, peanuts and peas. Eat properly portioned, balanced meals. Generally, about ⅓ of your plate should be fruits and vegetables and ⅓ of your plate should be grains. The final third should be a mix of protein and low-fat dairy (cottage cheese, eggs, non-fat milk, etc). -Drinking enough water also has the added bonus of keeping your hunger level down, helping you to maintain the lower calorie count that you’ll be getting now that you’re not exercising as much.

High blood suagr and pressure can cause changes in kidney. Think of it like the holes of the filter are bif and protiens are leaking out into the urine. He will need to control both sugar and pressure very fast and keep it maintained in normal levels.

You should go for brisk walk in the morning. Do regular exercise atleast 15 minutes. Take lukewarm water with half spoon methidana powder in the morning. Complex carbohydrates and fibre should be included. Diet in high in protein for health of diabetes. Junk food should be avoided. Timely and balanced diet is as important as regular medicine intake to control diabetes. Loose your extra weight this will not only lower your blood but also helps lowering your blood pressure, cholesterol too. Take small and frequent meals.
