Lybrate-user, madam, looking at her height and weight it is clear that she has (bmi 51.94kg/m2) morbid obesity, which is the main reason for her problems with joints and joint pain. Unless the weight is reduced joint pain will not go away. She may have to look the option of bariatric surgery, which can help in reduction weight.

One of the complications of imbalance in thyroid hormones is hair loss. Once you get your treatment to regulate thyroid hormone levels, the hair loss problem should resolve by itself. Besides, you can also do a few things to deal with thyroid induced hair loss.

Whether a diabetic patient 3 re times a day with 1 tsp of fenugreek seeds have in order to reduce sugar levels in the blood?

Diploma in Diet and Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Hyderabad
Fenugreek seeds help in control of sugar levels. However you can not depend on them alone. You have to bring your weight down by proper diet and exercise. Otherwise no medicine or herb will work. Aim to bring down 20 kgs by reduction of 2 kgs every month. Diabetes can be controlled/managed by a proper regulated diet and exercise. 1. Eat every two hours mini meals. Don't eat big meals. Take more green vegetables/salads regularly. 2. Eat whole grain food/grains like ragi, wheat instead of refined grains like maida/ sooji/ white bread etc. 3. Reduce foods with high GI Index like potato, white rice, banana, mango. 4. Avoid all forms of simple sugars like Colas, juices, sweets, cakes, biscuits, pizzas, noodles etc. 5. Eat daily fruits with low/medium GI index like apple, guava, mosambi, orange. 6. Eat lot of proteins like dals, sprouts, egg, chicken etc with every minimeal. 7. Take chapatis made of multigrain atta. 8. Drink lot of water. One glass every hour. 9. Daily intake of these helps- fenugreek seeds, tulsi, cinnamon, flax seeds, almonds. 10. Do at least 30-45 mins of exercise everyday.

For this high level of sugar need certain test in lab to rule out diabetic ketoacidosis and may need to start insulin and control sugar level. So visit hospital and see endocrinologist.

Uric acid is found in mostly in green leafy vegetables and whole cereals. If you have high uric acid than meet a dietician because uric acid has different diet chart. Totally change in diet so consult a dietician first. After all you can avoid whole cereal, high protein and green leafy vegetables.

My mother aged 53 years is having fasting blood sugar as 212 and 2 hrs ppbs as 309. Doctor has prescribed insulin but my mother is not comfortable while taking insulin as its giving her pain in thighs and she is also having fear of the needles. Is there any treatment for the same only with medicines. If yes please suggest. Thanks in advance.

PGD Maternal Child Health, MBBS
General Physician, Akola
Sugar levels are too high to be controlled with oral hypoglycaemics only. She should use insulin syringe with small 26 gauge needle or fountain pen injections which cause very minimal pain. Once her levels are normal a trial for oral medication can be given. If she is overweight, her diet needs to be planned strictly otherwise merely increasing insulin or other medicines is never going to bring the things to normal.

I am diabetic from last 5 yrs. My fasting result is between 100-118 average and pp is 150-200 average. I am taking jalra m 50/1000 in the morning after breakfast and 50/500 after dinner. I suffer a lots from uric acid and leg pain. And so recently my physician have prescribed me furic 40. Please provide me a international prescribed proper diet. At one time I was taking insulin human mixtard 30/70 as I was suffering from infection in my operated knee as the blood level was high for one month. There is myth that taking sugar control pills lead to kidney damage in future. Is it true? And taking insulin prevents kidney damage. please clarify.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user mustafa, the glucose levels mentioned look fairly good. Ideally fasting should be closer to 100 mg (as it is now), pp should be 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<7 (ideally <6.8%). Your sugar control can be improved by diet and exercise to the required ideal level. As regards the exact diet, it has to be very specific and individualised, based on present dietary practice, sugar levels, extent of daily exercise and present dietary pattern. So I prescribe the same if you supply all those details. In the mean time I am giving general guide lines as to which foods to be taken or avoided. Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, sweetened aerated drinks, red meat, high fat milk products, fructose corn syrup containing products and highly processed foods. Refrain from alcohol and smoking completely. Consume more of green leafy vegetables & salads, permitted fruits (100 g a day). Use whole grain products and whole grain flour for chapati and roti, no maida. Your diet should give calories based on ideal body weight, exercise and sugar levels. Regards.

Are you still on medications? are these reports done while you are on medications? in that case, diet alone is unlikely to keep your sugars controlled. If you need convincing, you can try reducing the medicine doses gradually and continue to diet while checking your sugars every alternate day. If the sugars start to rise, then it means the medicines are absolutely required.

In blood test report result _thyroglobulin (CLIA) H >300 NG/ML 0.2-70 how to control.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
A thyroglobulin test may sometimes be ordered when a person has symptoms of hyperthyroidism and/or an enlarged thyroid gland and the healthcare practitioner suspects that the person may have a thyroid disorder such as Graves disease or thyroiditis. It may be ordered at intervals when someone is being treated with anti-thyroid medications (for conditions such as Graves disease) to determine the effectiveness of treatment. Rarely, it may be ordered when an infant has symptoms associated with hypothyroidism. YOur details need to be known to advise.

Hello Sir, I am thyroid patient from 7-8 yrs. & taking tab Thyroxine-100mg empty stomach. Now I have checked my Thyroid & it is normal range. Should I take Thyroxine-100mg or decrease this dose.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
if now your reports is normal you can take low dose of medicines consult by physician. Take diet in 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. Proper follow up you can feel better and control weight also.

I am diabetic since last two years and taking drugs Glysipage G2b my sugar lavel is fasting 120To130. and post lunch 160 to180. After taking drugs twice a day now a days sugar level increases what to do ?

MD - Consultant Physician
General Physician, Mumbai
Your blood sugar seems to be fairly well controlled. A FBS less than 130 and PPBS less than 180 mg/dl if satisfactory for most people. If you are young, say less than 40 years, then a slightly tighter blood sugar level would be ideal. Check your HBA1C and see your average blood sugar.

Diabetes - 6 Natural Remedies that Will Help You Manage it

Diabetes - 6 Natural Remedies that Will Help You Manage it

Diabetes is a chronic metabolic disorder that results in higher level of blood sugar in the body. It is assuming epidemic proportions and India has become the new diabetic capital with more than 50 million diabetic people. The main problem with diabetes is that it does not completely go away and there is a whole myriad of issues that it brings along with it. Heart attack, stroke, eyesight problems, delayed wound healing, nerve damage and impotence. Therefore, diabetes and by that we mainly mean blood sugar level has to be managed so that there is a delay in onset of the associated conditions and/or reduced in severity.

Ayurveda refers to diabetes as Prameha (excessive urination) and Madhumeha (sugary urine) and has identified close to 20 forms of the disease. According to Ayurvedic belief, each disease is caused due to imbalance in kapha, pitta, and vata doshas and diabetes is caused by all these, predominantly by kapha. With any stream of medicine, management of diabetes involves two tracks – one is lifestyle changes and the second is medications.

Lifestyle changes include the following:

  1. Diet: Reduce the amount of rice, sugar, potato, sweet fruits, maida, deep fried foods, and red meat. Protein-rich foods like lentils, soya, green leafy vegetables and fish should be increased. Diet plan should change to small, frequent meals instead of binge eating.

  2. Exercise: Include 30 minutes of regular exercise into your daily routine if you have a diabetic predisposition.

  3. Others: Avoid smoking and alcohol, ensure sufficient sleep, avoid sleeping during day time, improved foot and eye care, periodically check sugar levels and manage stress levels.

Medication

Ayurveda has a whole lot of home remedies which have proven to be very effective against diabetes:

  1. Jambhul: Eugenia Jambolana whether eaten raw or juice extract has been shown to have beneficial effects in managing sugar levels and cholesterol.
  2. Gymnema sylvestre: Used to manage diabetes for over 2000 years, it reduces sugar cravings and is being touted as the future for diabetes treatment.

  3. Bitter gourd (Momordica charantia): It has 3 components that give it strong antidiabetic properties. The charantin reduces blood sugar levels; the polypeptide has insulin-like effects; and lectin that again has hypoglycemic effects.

  4. Bel (Aegle marmelos): Also known as wood apple, leaves of the plant are shown to have antidiabetic properties. 5 to 10 leaves can be chewed on a daily basis to help control blood sugar levels.

  5. Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum graecum): Consuming 10 g of fenugreek seeds soaked in water increases the amount of insulin produced, thereby increasing sugar breakdown.

  6. Neem: Chewing about 4 to 5 leaves in the morning on an empty stomach helps to control blood sugar levels. Alternately, neem leaves powder is available which can be dissolved in water and consumed.
