Dear Doctor, I am 61 years old male. My Glucose fasting is 110 mg/dL PP 149ng/dL. Shall i take honey/ dates/jam.
Hello, 1) Your blood glucose levels are fairly satisfactory. Your post prandial level is normal (for good control it should be less than 160) but your fasting glucose is on borderline (for good control it should less than 110). 2) So, I would suggest not to consume dates/jam/honey. They are filled with sugars. You can take fresh fruits like apples, pears, guava, orange, sweet lime etc. 3) Further you are still overweight. Your ideal weight should be around 65-67 kgs. So you should follow a strict diet and do plenty of exercise. Hope this helps you Thank you.

Diabetes - How Proper Nutrition Can Help You Combat It?

Diabetes - How Proper Nutrition Can Help You Combat It?

There are many myths about diabetes, especially related to what you can eat and what you can’t. Lots of people think that diabetics shouldn’t eat sweets at all. This is not true. Similarly, all carbs and fats are not bad. A high protein diet is also not required and there are no special diabetic meals. So, what should you as a diabetic, eat to combat diabetes? Read on to find out:

  1. Low glycemic index foods: Complex carbs are best for you as they limit the amount of sugar released into your blood stream and are digested more slowly and prevent your body from releasing too much insulin. These are also called low GI foods as well as slow-release carbs and are also high in fibre. Processed carbs like white bread, pasta, and rice, as well as sodas, packaged meals, and snacks must be junked. These are all called high glycemic index (GI) foods and spike your blood sugar.
  2. Manage sugar wisely: Diabetes doesn’t mean that you can’t eat sugar or desserts. It means you have to be smart with sugar, like
    • Take smaller servings of your favourite desserts as they are best eaten in moderation.
    • Reduce the sugar in your diet slowly rather than at once. This will give your taste buds some time to adjust, reducing sugar cravings.
    • If you want to eat dessert, hold back on carbs in a meal. Balance out meals so that you don’t eat too many carb-heavy foods.
    • Add some healthy fat to your diet, as it slows down the digestive process, which means that your blood sugar levels don’t spike as quickly.
  3. Eat sweets along with a meal and not alone: Sweets eaten alone can spike your blood sugar levels a lot.
  4. Don’t drink alcohol: Alcohol is full of calories and carbs and cocktails are loaded with sugar. Alcohol can interfere with diabetes medication and insulin, as well.
  5. Avoid junk, soft drinks, soda and juices: They are all packed with sugar.
  6. Avoid processed or packaged foods: These are loaded with hidden sugars. Eat food cooked at home.
  7. Remember high protein diets are not always good: Studies have shown that if you eat too much protein, especially animal protein, you may become insulin resistant. A healthy diet for diabetics includes protein, carbohydrates, and fats for the body to function properly.
  8. Eat more of these
    • Healthy fats found in raw nuts, olive oil, fish oils, and flax seeds.
    • Also eat more fruits and vegetables. Avoid juices.
    • Eat more high fibre cereals.
  9. And avoid foods like
    • Trans fats which means all deep-fried foods
    • Fast foods, especially cakes, pastries, and chips
    • Red meat

Remember, your overall eating patterns are very important. It’s also important to eat at regular intervals and avoid missing meals. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dietitian-nutritionist.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The condition that you have is known as Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. This leads to infiltration of thyroid cells with a large quantity of lymphocytes, leading to the gland becoming firm and may be granular in appearance. There are antibodies against the enzyme Thyroid peroxidase (Anti TPO Abs). TSH value goes up signifying hypothyroidism. Some times TSH value may not be too high, but patient has all the symptoms of hypothyroidism. The only treatment is to give adequate dose of Levothyroxine, which will take care of symptoms of hypothyroidism. There is no other option. Treatment with levothyroxine has to be for lifetime. Plus addition of Selenium to therapy does help in reducing the anti TPO antibodies. If proper tratment is taken you will live a fairly normal life. You will have to avoid soy beans and soy containing foods. Thanks.

Knowing thyroid problems

Hello everyone! My name is Dr. Hanish Gupta and I’m here today to discuss with you the important effects of thyroid gland on human body.
We have appropriately titled this video as three minute thyroid consult because I’m going to explain you within three minutes that what is thyroid gland and how it affects the human body.
Thyroid gland is a butterfly shaped gland which is located in front of your windpipe just like this. This is the thyroid gland. Thyroid gland despite its small size is a very very important gland for the human body because it controls the growth and the energy processes of the human body that is why the effect of this hormone has a far reaching effect on the entire functioning of the human body.

Now I will talk about the excess and the deficiency of this hormone in the human body which needs two conditions called hypothyroidism when there is a deficiency of this hormone in the body and hyperthyroidism when there is an excess of this hormone in the human body. The most common condition of hypothyroidism or deficiency of this hormone in the human body is hashimoto thyroiditis in which the thyroid gland looks like this. This is a condition in which all the energy processes of the human body, they become slower. There is weight gain, there is slowness of the heart rate or bradycardia there is swelling of the human body, there is hair fall, there is infertility or menstrual problems in females, there is depression, and most importantly all these things they collect together and become a very big problem for the patient.

However, the help is nearby because this condition can be treated with taking only one pill on daily basis. Similarly, a condition in which there is an excess of this hormone in the human body is known as hyperthyroidism and the most common cause of hyperthyroidism is Grave’s disease in which the thyroid gland looks like this. This is a condition in which all the energy processes of the human body, they become fast, there is faster heart rate, there is tremors or tremulousness, there is irritability of mood, there is weight loss, there is lot of other things that indicate that the patient is having faster energy but of no use because he’s having this condition for a long time and this condition can also be treated by taking only one pill, which can even be stopped later in life.

So, friends I hope that I have been able to dispel your doubts about thyroid hormone and I believe that you would love to come back to me on Lybrate for an online opinion or at my clinic at life aid clinic located in Delhi.
Thanks for watching and keep healthy!

Yes, of course. You must rule out thyroid problem. Tsh, t3 and t4 levels. Just as the types of thyroid conditions can vary, so can the symptoms of thyroid problems. Here, I have listed ten common symptoms of thyroid disease: nervousness and tremor: these symptoms, along with agitation, can signal an overfunction of the thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism). Mental fogginess and poor concentration: mental functioning can be affected in both hyperthyroidism (elevated levels of thyroid hormone) and hypothyroidism (too low levels of thyroid hormones). While sluggishness and depressed mood are often associated with hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism can also lead to a reduced capacity for concentration. Feeling bloated: fluid retention is often a sign of an underactive thyroid gland. Racing heartbeat: an increased heart rate (tachycardia) and palpitations can be symptoms of hyperthyroidism. Aches and pains: muscle aches and pain can accompany different types of thyroid problems. Weight gain: a modest amount of weight gain often accompanies conditions in which thyroid gland activity is lower than normal. High cholesterol levels: an increase in blood cholesterol levels can occur in individuals with hypothyroidism. Heat intolerance: people with an overactive thyroid gland often complain of intolerance to higher temperatures. Feeling cold: conversely, those with an underfunctioning thyroid may feel constantly cold. Sexual/ menstrual problems: like loss of libido and mentrual irregularities in females it is important to remember that none of these symptoms is absolutely specific for thyroid disease. All of them may be caused by a number of different conditions and normal states. Go for laboratory tests to evaluate the function of your thyroid gland if you have troubling symptoms.

This kind of pain in legs can be due to poor circulation of blood in the legs. Another reason in diabetic patients is diabetic neuropathy. She needs absolute control of diabetes. Check her vitamin B12 and D3 and calcium levels. USG colour Doppler can detect blood circulation problems in the legs. Vitamin E supplements sometimes help.

SAY 'NO' TO DIABETES

SAY 'NO' TO DIABETES

Tip 1: Get more physical activity
There are many benefits to regular physical activity. Exercise can help you:
• Lose weight
• Lower your blood sugar
• Boost your sensitivity to insulin — which helps keep your blood sugar within a normal range
Research shows that both aerobic exercise and resistance training can help control diabetes, but the greater benefit comes from a fitness program that includes both.
Tip 2: Get plenty of fiber
It's rough, it's tough — and it may help you:
• Reduce your risk of diabetes by improving your blood sugar control
• Lower your risk of heart disease
• Promote weight loss by helping you feel full
Foods high in fiber include fruits, vegetables, beans, whole grains, nuts and seeds.
Tip 3: Go for whole grains
Although it's not clear why, whole grains may reduce your risk of diabetes and help maintain blood sugar levels. Try to make at least half your grains whole grains. Many foods made from whole grains come ready to eat, including various breads, pasta products and many cereals. Look for the word "whole" on the package and among the first few items in the ingredient list.
Tip 4: Lose extra weight
If you're overweight, diabetes prevention may hinge on weight loss. Every pound you lose can improve your health, and you may be surprised by how much. Participants in one large study who lost a modest amount of weight — around 7 percent of initial body weight — and exercised regularly reduced the risk of developing diabetes by almost 60 percent.
Tip 5: Skip fad diets and just make healthier choices
Low-carb diets, the glycemic index diet or other fad diets may help you lose weight at first, but their effectiveness at preventing diabetes isn't known nor are their long-term effects. And by excluding or strictly limiting a particular food group, you may be giving up essential nutrients. Instead, think variety and portion control as part of an overall healthy-eating plan.

lybrate-user, If your HbA1c% is 10, that means your diabetes is uncontrolled. Change in HbA1c% occurs after 3 to 4 months of proper treatment with adequate amount of drugs being taken regularly plus exercising daily and taking restricted diet every day as prescribed by the doctor. You are not supposed to eat any sweet dishes. At the most a small piece may be taken. To say diabetes is in good control, fasting glucose should be closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c&<6.8. Thanks.

Strictly speaking, diabetic should avoid alcohol completely. But if you insist on taking it, ensure that your blood sugars and all other parameters are normal. Then, you may take one 30 ml drink of hard liquor (usually containing around 45% alcohol) per day. However, if you are on Insulin, avoid alcohol.

Understanding Uric Acid and how to manage them.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,

Understanding Uric Acid and how to manage them. 

Uric acid results from the breakdown of compounds known as purines in the body. Purines are both produced in the body and consumed through the diet. Normal values of uric acid in the blood range from 2.4 to 6.0 milligrams per deciliter for females and 3.4 to 7.0 milligrams per deciliter for males. Uric acid levels higher than 7.0 milligrams per deciliter in the blood can cause crystals to form and build up around joints, resulting in a painful form of arthritis known as gout. Many foods contain high levels of purines, and eating these foods can lead to high levels of uric acid in the blood.

Diet Tips for High Uric Acid Patients:
  1.    Lower fat intake as excess fat reduces normal excretion of uric acid.
  2.    Liberal fluid intake to keep the urine dilute and uric acid soluble to facilitate excretion by kidney.
  3.    Restriction or elimination of alcohol.

What to Avoid:
  1.    Shell fishes, red meat, mince meat, meat extracts, organ 
        meats, fishes (sardine, roe, makeral).
  2.    Whole pulses (masur, rajmah, chana, chole, etc.). Other dals 
        are allowed.
  3.    Vegetables and fruits - green peas, spinach, French beans, 
        brinjal, cauliflower, mushroom, chickoo, custard apple.

Diet Rules:
  A.    Use less salt while cooking. Avoid adding salt while cooking 
        rice or in chapatti dough.
  B.    Use adjuncts like tomato, vinegar, cocum, amchur, lime juice, 
         curd, pepper powder to make the food cooked with less salt 
         palatable.
  C.    Remove the salt shaker from the table.
  D.    Avoid salted nuts/ biscuits, papads, pickles, chutneys.
  E.    Avoid excess consumption of processed and preserved
       foods; eg. Bakery products
  F.    Caution - Do not overdo on salt substitutes as that might 
        cause an electrolyte imbalance.

Recommended Foods: 
  a.    Fresh cherries, strawberries, blueberries and other red-blue
        berries 
  b.    Bananas 
  c.    Celery 
  d.    Tomatoes 
  e.    Vegetables including cabbage and parsley 
  f.    Foods high in bromelain (pineapple) 
  g.    Foods high in vitamin C (red cabbage, red bell peppers,
        tangerines, mandarins, oranges, potatoes) 
  h.    Low-fat dairy products 
  i.    Complex carbohydrates (whole grain breads, cereals) 
  j.    Chocolate, cocoa 
  k.    Coffee, tea

Although Purines (organic compounds, which create uric acid breakdown in the body) are found in vegetable sources, they don't cause the same amount of uric acid buildup in the body that meat sources do. In fact, fresh fruits and vegetables reduce acid levels in the body and it is often advised to avoid red meats, organ meats and highly processed foods. Fresh fruits and vegetables are encouraged so the patient can increase alkalinity in the blood. 
Therefore, rather than attempting to find foods that are free of purines and uric acid, it’s important to know how to increase the body’s alkalinity, which naturally reduces the body’s acidity. Fresh, non-processed foods, such as fruits and vegetables, are the way to go.


Foods identified that lowers your Uric Acid 

1.    Water
Water flushes out toxins including excess uric acid from the body. Have at least 10- 12 glasses of water daily.

2.    Cherries
Cherries have anti–inflammatory substances named anthocyanis that help reduce uric acid levels. It prevents the uric acid from crystallising and being deposited in the joints. Cherries also neutralise the acids and help prevent inflammation and pain. 200 gms per day is very effective in bringing down uric acid.

3.    Apple
Malic acid in apple neutralises uric acid and thus provides relief to the sufferers. You should consume one apple daily after a meal.

4.    Lime
The citric acid found in lime is a solvent of the uric acid .The juice of half a lime squeezed into a glass of water should be taken twice daily.

5.    French bean Juice
Another effective home remedy for gout is French beans juice. The healthy juice can be consumed twice everyday for treating gout or high uric acid.

6.    Celery seed
This is a popular home remedy to lower uric acid levels in the body. Have celery seeds extract to get best results.

7.    Berries
Berries especially strawberries, and blueberries have anti-inflammatory properties so include them in your diet.

8.    Apple Cider Vinegar
Drink apple cider vinegar. Add 3 teaspoons of vinegar to 8 ounces of water and have it 2-3 times every day to treat uric acid.

9.    Pinto Beans
A diet rich in folic acid can help lower uric acid naturally. Folic acid rich foods like pinto beans, sunflower seeds and lentils should be included in your diet.

10.    Vegetable Juices
Carrot juice in combination with beet and cucumber juice is also very effective. 100 ml each of beet juice and cucumber juice should be mixed with 300 ml carrot juice and taken daily.

11.    Low fat dairy products
Low fat dairy products like milk, curd help lower uric acid level.

12.    Foods rich in Vit C
Include Vitamin C rich foods and supplements in your daily diet to reduce uric acid in the body. It disintegrates uric acid and forces it out of the body through urine. Good sources of vitamin C are Awla, Guava, Kiwi, Sweet lime, oranges, capsicum, lemon, tomato and green leafy veg.

13.    High-fiber foods
According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, adding foods high in dietary fibre may help lower uric acid levels in your blood. Dietary fibre may help absorb uric acid in your bloodstream, allowing it to be eliminated from your body through your kidneys. Increase the consumption of dietary soluble fibres such as Isabgol , Oats, Broccoli, apples, oranges, pears, strawberries, blueberries, cucumbers, celery, and carrots, barley.

14.    Bananas
Bananas are also beneficial in lowering  uric acid.A banana-only diet, consisting of eight or nine bananas per day for three or four days, may alleviate the swelling and inflammation of joints caused by gout or other forms of arthritis more rapidly.

15.    Green tea
Consume green tea on a regular basis to control hyperuricemia (high uric acid levels) and lower your risk of developing gout.

16.    Grains
Eating grains that are more alkaline such as jowar, bajra are helpful to reduce the level of uric acid in the body.

17.    Tomatoes, broccoli, and cucumbers
Tomatoes, broccoli, and cucumbers are some of the veggies that you need to start including in your meals. Tomatoes are one of the best vegetables that you could have for lowering uric acid. Fresh tomato is alkaline by nature and when it is exposed to the blood stream it increases the alkalinity of the blood.

18.    Dark Chocolate, cocoa
Theobromine is an alkaloid that is similar in structure to caffeine. It is found mainly in the cocoa bean and is at the highest levels in dark chocolates. Theobromine also can relax the bronchial muscles of the lungs and according to a small study, was more effective than codeine in relieving coughing. According to Dr. Shmuel Halevi at Acumedico.com, theobromine has the highest concentration of uric acid per gram of food than any other substance”, as reported by Livestrong.

19.    Raw vegetables
Raw vegetables like potatoes or corns are effective to reduce uric acid in the body. Have them raw or steam these vegetables.

20.    Omega-3
Essential fat Omega 3 from flaxseeds, walnuts, fishes like salmon, herring, mackerel, sardines reduces inflammation and swelling
