Mr. Lybrate-user, in persons with diabetes fruits to be avoided are - mangoes, bananas, chikkoos & grapes. Fruits like papaya, guava, apple, orange, sweet lime, pomegranate, water melon, other melons & pear can be eaten. Only about 100 g a day, that too with excellent sugar control. Thanks for the question.

I am 23 years. I would like to know the one crucial factor that will lead to diabetes. Does staying in urban or rural impact diabetes since I stay in a city. Also want to know how to stay away from diabetes ?

Diabetes onset is multifactorial. No way to predict it. Live healthy, eat healthy, act healthy, have peace of mind and regular exercise. Does not guarantee that you will not get diabetes but is advised. And be realistic, there are no absolute solutions for diseases which are 100% foolproof. What in life is 100% certain?

Take diet for hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, Avoid few foods in hypothroidism i.e. caffeine products tea,coffee, tabcco, alcohol / wine , kale, broccoli, spinach, mustard green, cabbage, turnip, millet, cassava, linseeds, pine nuts, soy products as soy milk, tofu, soybeans, soy souce, also avoid stress. Take Some Relax during work.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Insulin will work better if taken in combination with diet and exercise. Medication will depend on your blood sugar level diabetes can be kept under control by diet, exercise and medication. It can be cured if detected in early stage.

For your height 67 kg is normal weight and you must not allow any gain in the weight. In view of diabetes you must keep your diet low on sugars (carbohydrates) & fats and enough proteins. Keep exercising like walking. Strenuous exercises may burn calories but if you are on anti diabetic drugs, severe exercise for 1 and half hour may precipitate hypoglycaemia at times, so it is better to have regular brisk walking for 4 to 5 kilometers in about an hour. Have small frequent meals in place of 2 large meals at lunch and dinner. Eat lot of salads and one fruit of your choice, avoiding grapes, mangoes, sugarcane juice etc.

Hello, It is always better to have blood glucose under control with fasting closer to 100 mg, PP 160 to 180 mg, HbA1c%<7. This will help in keeping fit and doing regular exercise will help in getting a good sleep. However, if there is sleep disturbance, some times a sleep inducing drug may be used. But taking clnazepam regularly is definitely bnot advisable. That drug has potential to cause addiction apart from multiple side effects. On kidney specifically there is no serious problem. Thanks.

Hi lybrate-user, thyroid disorder or hypothyroidism cannot be completely cured with allopathic mode of treatment, it can only give you suppression of the disease but not complete cure. You should take homoeopathic treatment for best results and that too side effect free. You should start taking calcium and vitamin b12 in your diet as well as in supplements. For homoeopathic treatment contact further.
