I've been thin all my life until I discovered that there are supplements that can increase my weight. I started drinking supplements. I drink three glasses a day. I've gained 20 pounds since, and I'm now at 125 pounds, but I'm still underweight. During the past three months. Please suggest me proper medicine.

Hello, Gaining weight is a slow process which requires patience and dedication! It not only depends upon the amount of food you consume daily, but also about eating Sensibly, depends upon your genes, your body's proper metabolism, assimilation and absorption, the levels of stress/ tension in your life, and any underlying medical condition you have! The food what and how you eat, makes the difference! For increasing your weight, concentrate on the below points (if you don’t have any medical condition) which helps in gaining weight in a right way without harming your body. - Consume more healthy fats. Foods containing healthy fats are full of nutrients and also high in calories, making them a great option for weight gain. Foods containing plant fats should be your first option - this includes items such as nuts, seeds, peanut butter, avocados and olive oil. Foods containing healthy animals fats include lean meats and full fat dairy products - although if you have high cholesterol, you should probably stick to low-fat options. -Eat more protein. Good sources of protein include lean meat, fish and poultry, in addition to eggs, whole grains, dairy products and legumes. -Drink more calories. Try drinking a large glass of orange juice in the mornings (along with your normal breakfast). Drink a glass or two of full-cream milk throughout the day. -Have 6 small and frequent meals in a day. -Gain muscle mass. It's a good idea to continue to exercise while you attempt to gain weight the healthy way. Strength training includes working with weights and performing exercises such as squats, deadlifts, bench presses, bicep curls, crunches, chin-ups and leg curls. Just keep in mind that the more you exercise, the more calories you will need to consume to replace those you lost while working out. -Quit smoking. As it suppresses the appetite. -Stay healthy. The most important thing through the entire weight gain process is to stay healthy - eating a balanced diet and continuing to exercise throughout. -Take enough of rest and sleep for rejuvenation of the cells and tissues. -Think Positive which will help you in achieving your target of gaining weight. -Avoid taking unnecessary stress/ tension. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Alfaalfa Tonic and Five Phos. Both thrice daily ½ an hour before meals for 3 months. Revert.

I am pregnant and diabetic too. I just want a proper diet chart according to time.

M.B.S.(HOMEO), MD - Homeopathy

You may be able to control gestational diabetes by eating well and exercising regularly. This means you won't need to take medication. Sugar (glucose) is one of your body's main sources of energy. Your body uses a hormone called insulin to control the amount of sugar in your blood and to turn it into fuel. But pregnancy hormones reduce the effect of insulin, so your body has to make more to be able to use any sugar in your blood. If you have gestational diabetes, your body isn't producing enough insulin. As a result, your blood sugar levels can get very high and that can lead to problems for your baby. It's possible to keep your blood sugar levels under control by changing what you eat and combining your new healthy diet with regular exercise. In fact, up to 90 per cent of women with gestational diabetes control it this way. DIET There are two types of carbohydrate that give you energy when you eat them. They are: complex carbohydrates, or starch simple carbohydrates, or sugars Sometimes, complex carbohydrates are described as good carbs, and simple carbohydrates as bad. But this doesn't give the whole picture. Simple carbohydrates include added sugars, such as table sugar and honey, as well as natural sugars, found in fruit and milk. Eating plenty of fruit and some dairy products is a healthy thing to do. So when people call simple sugars bad carbs, they are talking about added sugars. If you have gestational diabetes and you have too many foods and drinks high in added sugars, it can upset your blood glucose control. It's not healthy for people without diabetes, either. At least half the energy in our diets should come from carbohydrate, mostly as starchy carbohydrates. Starchy carbohydrates are: bread rice pasta grains potatoes Try to have wholegrain varieties where possible. They provide extra fibre, which is important for your digestion. If you have gestational diabetes, the types of food and drink you'll be advised to have are no different from the type of healthy diet everyone should have. Your food should be high in complex carbohydrates and low in saturated fat. You should not have added sugars, although you won't have to cut them out completely. It's best if you eat fruit, milk and yoghurts as part of a mixed meal. Your body will then absorb the simple sugars in the juice or dairy food more slowly. That's because the sugars are mixed with other food elements, such as fibre and protein. AND USE LOW GLYCEMIC INDEX FOODS LIKE pasta made with durum wheat flour apples, oranges, pears, peaches beans and lentils sweetcorn porridge Eat plenty of high-fibre foods. These foods tend to have a low GI. This may help to keep your blood sugar levels from going too high after meals. High-fibre foods include: fresh fruit and vegetables wholegrain breads and cereals dried peas, beans and pulses.

Is jaggery the right replacement of Sugar for sweeting the drinks like tea, nimboo Pani etc. And sweet dishes like kheer, halwa etc. What are the bad effects of jaggery?

MBBS, DPHA, DPH, PGDHHM, MBA (Healthcare), Fellow in Diabetes

Hi Lybrate, Jaggery cannot be replacement for sugar in diet. It is sugar only in other form and taste. Needs more quantity than regular crystal sugar. The jaggary contains Iron and B12 vitamin is good for health in normal way. But it has similar effects like sugar in body making one prone to diabetes and obesity. Regards.

In my family no one is diabetic, my age is 36, blood sugar was before brake fast 81 and after that 181 in urine 7.5. My weight is 80 and I have knee pains and gyniac problem of dismenohrea due to this I am facing lots of difficulties like vomiting, abdominal pain, over bleeding for 3 days. I dont know what to do. Daily two times I use to take chapati & tea for 2 times, one time rice, is it okay. I will control my diet. I am having 6 years old daughter she is so small. Sir please tell me what I do?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
It is not as easy 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) 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. For sugar 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 privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take.

What is the symptoms of diabetes and hepatitis C.what medicine will be good for this diseases. Please help me.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus most often does not produce any symptoms, that is one of the reasons why many people do not realise that they have the disease. When fully developed it may cause excess urination, excess hunger, excess thirst, unexplained weight loss and tiredness. Depending upon the type of diabetes and severity of blood sugar level different drugs are used to treat the patients. In t1 only insulin injections are used. No other drug is useful. In t2 there are many oral anti-diabetes drugs plus insulin injections are used. Hepatitis c is a viral disease, occurs when the virus enters due to either blood transfusion (infected blood), using used needles, unprotected sex with infected person etc. Usual symptoms are fatigue, gastrointestinal upsets, joint pains, loss of appetite, jaundice, dark or yellow urine and bruising or bleeding easily. Treatment is using a number of antiviral drugs. Thanks.

Using Adderall over an extended period can increase the risk of critical cardiovascular problems and strokes. There are also significant mental health issues associated with the long-term use of Adderall, such as depression, hostility and paranoia.

Adopting a hormone friendly diet is only one aspect of management of hypothyroidism. It is important to treat hypothyroidism in a comprehensive manner. A hotmone friendly diet involves plenty of coloured vegetables, nuts, fish, avoidance of dairy products (curds and yogurt may be taken) and avoidance of processed foods and bakery products. Those having gluten intolerence should avoid wheat products.

I am having high uric acid level and taking medicine zyloric. Does this have any side effect. Also how can deterioration of cartilage of knee joints prevented.?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed.

Mr. lybrate-user, In the winter months skin becomes dry and there may be increased itching. There may not be any specific problem like infection or allergy. You may consider using moisturising creams or oils or white petroleum jelly applications, to maintain good deal of moisture in the skin. That should help. Fasting glucose should ideally be around 100 mg, for good control. PP should be 1j0 to 180 mg/100 ml. Thanks.

Please advice as to how I can have normal levels always,

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, it is good to know that you are very active. However, are you aware that your bmi is 26.56 kg/m2, which shows being over weight. Plus at your age ideal body weight should be 54 kgs, which means there is an excess of 14 kgs. So reduction of a few kgs will help in bringing sugar levels lower. Plus your diet should be giving calories based on 54 kgs and actual workout that is done plus blood sugar levels. So it is possible that either the drugs may to be added or dietary control has to be more strict. So please look at it. With regards.
