First do a PPBS. Take gluconorm g 0.5 twice daily instead of gluconorm sr 1 gm. Exercise daily for 45 minutes. Avoid sweets and fried food, reduce rice and rotis by 20 percent to reduce weight. Take salads before meals to reduce the quantity of rice and rotis.

If his kidney failure is permanent, he will need regular dialysis. If his kidney failure is temporary, he will be able to come off dialysis. Discuss with the kidney doctor who is seeing your father whether the kidney failure is acute or chronic.

I am 22 female. I have thyroid and eating 50 MCG tab. I had a test in which it was 4.73 normal. So should I continue the tab?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
yes. you should continue your medicine in same dose. and 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. Take Some Relax during work. Proper follow up you can feel better and reduce weight also.

No. Not at all. U need not to increase th dose of this tab as it can cause some harms. Rather you can change your tab according to th advise of your family physician. There are much better options available. Also you can follow some diet modulations acc to th expert advise. Take healthy nutritious diet.

I am 58 Years old man I am suffering from depression one or two days in every week Note my sugar level : 125 ~180 & B P 135 ~85.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS

Hello, there are many aspects of depression, the more of them you have the more likely you are to have a clinical depression. Some patients feel severely depressed and suicidal. If you have these feelings you should go to the emergency department immediately. Other things that people with depression can feel are sadness, low energy, lack of motivation, poor sleep, irritability, weight gain or loss, poor self image and sometimes even a lack of touch with reality. The more of these symptoms you have the more likely it is that you have serious depression. Treatments for depression include medications, counseling and exercise. Again the more of these you do the better your chance for a successful treatment. Good luck to you,

I am 38 years recently attacked blood sugar which diet I will taken? what type of food taken? what type of food not taken kindly tell me?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Bangalore
Blood sugar levels can be maintained to normal levels by balanced diet and exercise. Take food rich in fibre and those with less carbohydrate and fat content. If you are consuming rice for both lunch and dinner then cut down the intake for dinner. Consume oats, vegetables, ragi. Few home remedies: consume methi powder on empty stomach in the morning 1/2 hour before breakfast and before dinner. Drink water in which ladies finger with a slit is soaked overnight on empty stomach.

I am 43 year old and I am a diabetic. My weight is 65 kg. Weight of mine is okay in this situation or should I reduce my weight. If I should reduce then what to do and what to eat.

MSc

Hi lybrate-user tips for weight loss eat fresh vegetables daily. Avoid having sugar completely. Eat whole wheat bread instead of white bread; avoid everything made from white flour and make whole wheat bread, chapattis and brown rice a way of life. Do not skip a meal and eat three meals a day. Drink plenty of water to eliminate the toxins from the system. Limit your fat intake to 2-3 teaspoons a day. Increase the fiber intake as it provides a sense of fullness and also prevents hunger pangs. Take antioxidants for protecting the body against the toxins released during weight loss. Exercise catalyzes your efforts to lose weight and even regular walking for thirty minutes can give you the benefits of an aerobics exercise. To improve the metabolism, try increasing the duration, frequency, intensity of your daily workout. Remember that maintaining the ideal weight is a lifetime commitment and not a short-term affair. Firmly believe that the pleasure of being trim and healthy is far better than the pleasure of eating unwisely.

Sir, it is unlikely because of medicines. It is due to your skin dryness. You can start applying Venusia Max cream twice a day for full body. Dont use soap everyday while bathing. When you want to apply soap, you can apply Zyndet bar. Please dont use scrub or loofah during bath and when you wear any wollen clothing, use a layer of cotton clothing in between
