Check your blood sugar levels. If it is uncontrolled than also you can have bodypain. There are other reason as well. You can consult with me regarding further management.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if your blood sugar levels are not controlled then there is a possibility of loosing weight. So please let me know the fasting, pp sugar levels and hba1c%, dietary pattern and whether you exercise regularly and current treatment. You can join the gym, but excellent sugar control is a must.

Hi, I am 28 year old and suffering with high blood sugar levels. Also suffering with urine infection, excessive thirst and hunger. Before 5 months I had a hba1c test and level was 7.5 after that I faced stressful situation and also high fever and have weight loss of 4 kg. Before 6 years I have gall stone laproscopy surgery. Generally my sugar levels are 250 at morning and between 250 to 300 or plus in night. Please suggest me something.

You have uncontrolled sugar. Please avoid sweets and sugar from your diet. Avoid ripe fruits like mango, etc. Increase intake of salad in your daily meal. Start walking half hour daily as routine. Do some yoga and pranayama. It will help you a lot. Consult endocrinologist to start any medication to control your sugar. Please never take it light as your are of young age. If you take care of your self and do necessary steps and everything will be alright. Just you have to change some basic life style and food habits. And you win over diabetes.

Can levothyroxine sodium cause persistent low grade fever during usage for hypothyroidism. What are the side effects of levothyroxine and how to overcome?Please help sir.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
levothyroxine is like the natural hormone, most often very well tolerated. Some patients occasionally complain of side effects like headaches, sleep problems, feeling of irritability and nervous, fever, hot flushes, sweating, increased heart beat, palpitation, menstrual period changes and appetite changes and weight changes. These effects usually subside on long term usage. If allergy occurs, drug may have to be discontinued. But by and large I have not come across any patient with such side effects so far. Thanks for the question.

Hii my sister is 22 years old she has thyroid. She was on treatment for pregnancy and now she is pregnant .I want to know what care should I have to do for her bcoz I have heard becoz of thyroid so much complications are there. Pls I need a diet also for her.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-user, Primary requirement is her TSH should be maintained below 2 mU/L all through the 9 months of pregnancy. If this is done, fetal growth and pregnancy out come will be very good. She should avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, radish, broccoli, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Use whole grain flour for roti & chapati. Avoid maida and items made out of it. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Thanks.

I have baldness I treated in several hospitals both ayurvedic and allopathic. But no results I'm not interested in hair fixing. I don't have any allergic reaction to medicines. I m not taking any medicines for any kind of disease. Menstruation is regular. I had undergone investigations like in hb, thyroid functions etc. Can you help me out from this problem.

Just as your overall health will benefit from eating a balanced diet, so too should the health of your hair. Once it’s gone, it’s gone, so don’t put foods in your body that speed up hair loss. You may be experiencing a thinning on top already, but you can counteract this (or at least slow it down) by eating from every food group daily -- concentrating on foods that are rich in protein, iron, silica, and zinc.

How to put control our sugar level when insulin is not taken properly in a day or weak.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
How to control hunger if food is not taken in a day or week. Sorry if I hurt your sentiments. But its just a way to explain this. Just as we can not curb hunger without eating, similarly we can not control sugars without insulin. Please understand and respect your body just as you understand your basic needs. Regards.

Hello along with taking the right medicines for diabetes, your mother will have to avoid taking a lot of sugar. Lesser sugar in tea or lesser sweet consumption to start with. She can also take one tea spoon of powder of roasted methi seeds early in the morning and at night it has helped my patients a lot.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
I recommend the following 1. Find out how much of protein you are losing in the urine. Protein in urine rises the creatinine. tablets like ace/arb can reduce protein in urine 2. Avoid red meat 3. Avoid weight lifting exercises 4. Tab nephrosave twice daily has given good results in my patients 5. Most importantly make sure bp is within 130/70 at all times

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.

When you are trying to gain weight, you should eat food the rich in vitamins and minerals. 1. Healthy food includes meat, egg, milk, fruit vegetables, fruits, and nuts. Cashews, almonds, dates, walnuts, dry grapes, apricots, peaches are some of the dried fruits and nuts that can be added to breakfast, salads, cereal and desserts. Sesame seeds, ground nuts, and peanuts also contain fats in them and can help in adding that extra pounds you desire. 2. Sometimes loss of appetite may also cause weight loss. So you should take following remedies improving weight a]triphala kadha 4tsp before lunch and dinner b]amala juice 4 tsp + sugar 2 tsp+ honey 2 tsp empty stomach in the morning umami flavor increases satiety and enhances appetite. Due to improving hunger and digestion whatever you will eat more and even you eat more it will digest properly and your weight will increase naturally without any supplement.

Thyroid diseases and Diabetes are quite closely related to each other. All diabetics, especially Type 1 diabetics, should undergo screening for thyroid diseases as adviced by their Diabetologists. As thyroid diseases are more common in women, all female diabetics should definitely get screened too.

Pz suggest me some interesting yoga or exercise which I can do regularly. Recently im diagnosis with diabetic and tgl. My weight is also more. But feel bore n lazy to do exercise.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
lybrate-userji, There is no exercise or asana which is "interesting" Exercise and yoga asanas are both need self motivation and dedication, to do regularly. Simplest of all exercises is brisk walking. Otherwise it is better if you join a gym and do workouts under the guidance of a professional trainer. Plus if you have diabetes, then taking appropriate medication is most vital. Blood glucose should be maintained: Fasting closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. If one has excess weight then that is a triger for diabetes. Apart from drugs, diet and weight reduction with exercise is equally important. Thanks.
