Merely because your parents have diabetes you need not restrict eating sugar or carbohydrates unless you too have got Diabetes. It is for diabetics that we need to restrict sugars because their system is unable to transport the blood glucose in to the cell. A non diabetic person is capable of transporting his/her glucose in to the cell so there is no problem One should ensure that the quantity of carbohydrates (Sugar) is not more than desired calorie demand to be generated from carbohydrates else the excess gets converted in to fats and causes obesity, which predisposes for diabetes in years after middle age. That is because increased body weight means more tissue, means more requirement of insulin to transport glucose, and the pancreas even if supplying normal quantity of insulin may not do so in such increased demand situations. So eat moderately, keep burning your fat by regular exercises and live healthily.

You and your husband needs detailed work up and then to decide the treatment plan. Menopause at 31 years is not common but still can happen. But that does not mean that there is no hope. Even after this ''early menopause", you still can have a baby. Never lose hope. All the best.

The ana test is not specific. More tests are needed to know what is causing high ana. Lupus and scleroderma can both cause skin irritation, but so can a lot of other autoimmune diseases. If a diagnosis can be pinpointed, it can be adequately treated as well, and it's prognosis clarified. Meet a good rheumatologist.

Is your hypothyroidism in control? if it is, then weight control is possible. What is your weight & height? diet should contain less fat, (no deep fried foods, not more than 1/2 kg oil per month), more proteins. Should exercise regularly for at least 1 and half hour a day. Your caloric intake should be calculated based on your ideal body weight (ibw = height in cms - 100 x 0.9 = kg) if you want to cut down weight then intake should be 25 calories x wt in kg/ d. This should be followed meticulously. Avoid junk food, aerated drinks and sweets. Preferably join a gym.

lybrate-user, Your blood glucose levels are normal. There is no pregnancy related diabetes. Your TSH is slightly high. Ideally TSH should be between 0.1 to 2mU/L in first trimester, 0.3 to 3 mU/L in second and third trimester. There may be a need to take hormonal supplement for the period of pregnancy. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, The product mentioned is a combination of some herbs, based on ancient ayurvedic texts. There are no proper double blind trials conducted on humans. Some animal studies have been done mainly or rats, where it has shown 67% positive results. This is as good as placebo. As there is no reliable standard clinical evidence, I will not able to comment on its benefits and use as an antidiabetic. Thanks.

Watch your weight. If you are obese then try to lose weight by regular exercise.

Eat fresh fruit, vegetables, whole wheat products and some pulses (high in purine) every day.

Enjoy low-fat milk and dairy products daily.

Keep an eye on the purine content of food. Avoid offal, shellfish and crustaceans and tinned fish such as sardines in oil.

Uric acid diet should be relatively high in carbohydrates, moderate in protein and low in fat. Complex carbohydrates like whole grain cereals, fruits and vegetables contain fiber that can help in proper digestion of the foods and assimilation of the nutrients.

Eat no more than 100 gm of meat, sausages, fish and poultry a day.

Say no to alcohol and sweetened cold drinks.

Fresh fruits like apples, bananas, oranges and lime are beneficial. Black cherries are considered to be beneficial in reducing uric acid levels.

Drink at least two liters of low-calorie fluids a day. Recommended fluids are water, tea and fruit juice.

Please note that normal uric acid levels in our body.

Men 3.5 to 7.0 mg/dl
Women 2.5 to 5.7 mg/dl
