Hello, Thanks for the query. T2 DM is a preventable disease, only when a person is in a prediabetic state. At that point if weight is controlled, regular exercise is done, proper diet is taken and sweets are restricted, junk food is avoided and one refrains from colas, alcohol and smoking, then it is possible to remain free from diabetes. However, once diabetes develops then it impossible to control the condition only by diet and exercise. Proper medications are required to achieve desired low glucose levels. Thanks.

The tsh values are low because she is taking thyronorm 25 mcg, daily, and this is quite a low dose, when tsh is low t3 & t4 will be normal. Thyronorm is also t4 only. So please do not think of reducing the dosage. This has to continue. Only thing is keep checking tsh levels once 3 - 4 months.

Please do not follow any of the short term or fad diets. Especially when you are diabetic, it is always better to have a balanced nutrition and lifestyle changes. Begin with small changes such as avoiding junk and fried foods, processed foods, salted and sugary foods etc. Then add 45 mins of walking or exercise to your routine. Ensure you are eating real foods such as pulses, red rice, ragi, millets, eggs, curd etc and lots of vegetables and fruits. Always eat limited portions but eat a variety of foods through the day. Most importantly, drink at least 3 liters of water per day and ensure you are sleeping 6-7 hours.

Hi, 1) it is not only the quality of food but the quantity is important too. If you feel you are consuming large quantity of food then reduce the amount consumed. Eat lot of vegetables - they bulk you up and have negligible calories, thus you won't be consuming more of carbs or fats which are the foods that cause weight gain. 2) Main culprit in your case I think is because of your sitting job. Get up and walk around the office every hour. Use the stairs as much as possible instead of lift. Walk from bus stand to office or park your vehicle at a distance and walk to your office. 3) To lose weight you need to be in energy deficit, that means the calories burned through exercise and physical activity should be more than calories eaten. 4) See a good dietician who can provide you a diet chart and follow it strictly. All the best. Thank you.

You are taking trimetazine which is typically given in the management of angina or ischemic heart disease. Either your af is due to an ischemic episode some time back or due to thyroid. Please consult with all your reports as well as medications and ecg with ii long lead. Atrial fibrillation has some other problems too mainly pertaining to clots getting formed in the atria. Ideally there are drugs available for the management of the af which can be given and there are some minimal invasive surgical procedures too. Best of luck.

How Does Exercise Control Blood Sugar?

How Does Exercise Control Blood Sugar?

It is an established fact that regular physical exercise has wonderful effects on the overall health of a person. People of all ages can reap the benefits of exercise that take manifestation in all the various systems of the human body.

One such healthy effect of exercise is that it can help control blood sugar levels. For those who have been diagnosed with diabetes, exercise works like any other drug in keeping blood glucose at an optimal level. It also helps in preventing further health complications that may be caused by this condition, such as heart disease or strokes.

How does exercise control blood sugar?

Exercise affects the body's blood glucose levels in the following ways:

  • Exercising increases insulin sensitivity, which makes the body more capable of using insulin to take up available excess glucose in the bloodstream.
  • Muscle contractions during exercise stimulate the cells to use up glucose to produce energy.
  • Heightened cardiovascular activity while exercising burns through blood glucose a lot faster.

It is necessary to keep checking blood sugar levels at regular intervals, especially if you suffer from diabetes. Working out has different effects on different individuals, depending on the duration and intensity of exercise and the overall health and medical history of the person.

What are the best ways to use exercise to reduce blood sugar levels?

It is important to chalk out a suitable exercise routine that is tailored specifically to your individual needs. Consult a health care specialist or physical therapist for formulating the best possible workout regime for your specific requirements.

Most experts recommend engaging in moderately intense exercise for a minimum of 150 minutes in a week.

A few examples of activities that fall under this category are as follows:

  • Brisk walking
  • Cycling
  • Swimming
  • Squats and lunges
  • Stretching exercises
  • Yoga

One thing that diabetes patients should always keep in mind is that over-exercising must be avoided. Excessively strenuous workouts can lead to hypoglycemia (deficiency of blood glucose) which is a highly unsavory condition.

You have to follow correct diet as advised by your doctor, light exercise like walk for about 40 minutes on about 5 -6 days in a week, regular visit to your doctor for monitoring of blood sugar levels and review of medications. Get blood test for sugar in morning (fasting), 1 1/2 hours after morning principal meal and just before dinner. Show the report to your doctor and take his advice. Regular detail check up once 3 - 6 months for detection of diabetes complications if any.

Antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables: 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. 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,
