Hi. Thankyou for the query. Definitely diet plays a very important role in hypothyroidism. You can reduce the medication by improving your diet and lifestyle. Eating healthy as per your lifestyle is a must along with some physical activity. Do go for a personalised diet consultation.

I am a diabetic since last 6 years. I am too fat. I tried many medication but nothing worked. Prescribe some medicine for normal daily life.

I gather that you want help for managing obesity. First thing you need to ensure is that your blood sugar remains under check. Eat lots of fibres, avoid fatty food. Exercise daily. If you are morbidly obese, ypu may go for bariatric surgery to reduce weight.

I think you must quickly get HbA1c done. If it is beyond 8, you must consult immediately. High blood sugar for a long time will lead to disastrous complications.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Fasting 133 mg is showing presence of diabetes. PP 172 mg is slightly less. So it is better if you check HbA1c%, that will give a clear picture. Diabetes is confirmed if it is more than 6.5 %. Diet control and regular exercise of over 1 hour a day is a must. Thanks.

Preetiji, Alcohol in any quantity is bad for health. It provides empty calories, does not have any nutritional value.So in my opinion it is bad in any quantity. More so if a person is over weight. But the choice is yours. Thanks.

I am suffering from diabetics since one year and I am not able to move and do my works alone.

I am suffering from diabetics since one year and I am not able to move and do my works alone.
Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance... if you keep in touch personally.
