Mr wasim khan, looking at your weight and height, your bmi is 22.87 kg/m2 which is just normal. It is really excellent to have this kind of weight and height. I do not see any reason why one should think of increasing the weight. If your diabetes is under check, then this weight is fine. Please mention your fasting, pp levels and hba1c%, so that I may be able to guide.

Is d alopathic medicine is harmful for diabetes. Actually im suffering from type 1.
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. If you are having T1 diabetes then I am sure you must be on insulin, as there is no other treatment for that. All the modern drugs used in treating diabetes are very safe and used by diabetic patients for lifetime. So there is no reason to worry. Thanks. Particularly if one has Type 1 diabetes then Insulin injections is the ONLY treatment. Thanks.

Lybrate-user, looking at your weight and height you have grade 1 obesity with a bmi of 33.34 kg/m2. (normal bmi <23 kgs/m2). Weight reduction is possible when you control hypothyroidism effectively with tsh levels being maintained between 3 to 4 milli units/l. Along with that there has to be a strict diet control and regular exercise of at least 1 hour a day. Your ideal body weight should be about 55 kgs. Thanks for the question.

Hye, thanks for the query. For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - the sugar levels will fluctuate depending on what you ate or did not eat, stress levels and activity levels. You have to try and manage a balanced carb intake. Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. You have to eat 3 main and 3 mid meals. Your diet must include whole grains, seasonal fruits, vegetables, small amounts of nuts and dairy and pulses or dals or lean meats like chicken or fish and egg. Starchy vegetables need to be planned into the diet. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Avoid exercise if sugar levels are above 250 mg/dl. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Madam you are under the care of a good experienced doctor. Your thhyroid hormone levels are with in normal limit. Your sugar levels (fasting is a bit high, are also good. You have not mentioned the hba1c%. But looking at your height and weight you are having grade 2 obesity. Your ideal body weight should be 51 kgs, which means you are having 39 kgs extra. For this you need to look at reducing the weight by at least 5 to 8% in next six to eight months. One can reduce about 1/2 kg per week by reducing daily intake by 500 calories, plus doing regular exercise for more than 1 hour a day. In fact your dietary intake has to be based on your ideal body weight and not on your current weight.

Hypothyroid leads to a slight increase in Triglycerides, your levels are not high enough to start any medications yet. you have not mentioned your LDL levels. so make sure your TSH is within normal range. Secondly diet, exercise and lifestyle patters have a major correlation with Cholesterol levels, It is important that you modify your diet to a low fat, low sugar diet (take a detailed diet consult for that) and begin with exercise, start gradually increase to 45 mins per dayof brisk walking or yoga, quit alcohol if u take. these are standard recommendations asper American and European guidelines accepted by India cardiac society also, so kindly do not pay heed to anyone who suggests to you that diet has no role to play in cholesterol management.

What a person should avoid in diabetes in eating and which precautions and exercise should be done?
Mr Nitin, A person with diabetes has to take a balanced diet containing adequate carbs, proteins and fats, like every one else. However, total calories provided should match his exact need based on ideal body weight, blood sugar levels and extent of exercise. He should avoid sweets, direct sugar and jaggery, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Plus avoid high fat cheese, butter and ghee. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads, and permitted fruits (100 g a day). Refrain from alcohol and smoking. As regards exercise, any exercise that one is capable of doing is good enough. Brisk walking is excellent. Others like surya namaskar, yoga asanas, jogging and running are also good. One that suits is to be done.

Is any cure of diabetes? and how to gain hair if the person is suffering from diabetes?
Diabetes whether t1 or t2 is not curable disease, treatment has to be continued for life time. Hair loss may not be directly linked to diabetes. Improper nutrition is one of the reasons for it. Achieve strict sugar control and eat healthy food apart from trying measures to gain hair.
