Can a diabetic have drinks like whisky or beer sometimes .how much is a safe quantity and frequency.
Dear user. Whether you are diabetic or not, it is not advisable to take liquor or alcoholic drinks at all because they are harmful for your liver, and whole of your body. Even a single drop of alcohol is poison for your liver. Quit alcohol. Take care.

Diabetes and insulin at young age is depressing. See some juvenile diabetics and their life style in real life or net groups, you will feel you are not alone. They have achieved so much living with diabetes. You need not achieve like them. But you will not be worried about other's facial expression and feel bad. You can not live alone. The earlier you get adjusted to others expression, the better it is for you. You have to go out and mix up with all sorts of people. Start with known classmates and cousins with whom you are comfortable. Slowly expand to others. Best of luck.

Hello, for controlling bp try to avoid processed foods and salt intake. Can also use low sodium salt. Also for sugar or diabetes problem, atleast walking is important. Meals should be taken at regular intervals or gaps of 2-3 hours. Water intake should also be checked. Do not stress. Try to avoid any kind of alcoholic beverages. Still if required, can have 30 ml red wine once a while.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you should have been on thyroxine hormone, as tsh is too high, showing severe hypothyroidism. Plus you will have to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts and coffee. Consume good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for chapati nad roti. Do not use food made of refined flour like maida. Plus you will have to take a restricted diet that provides exact calories based on ideal body weight (80 kgs). Your bmi is 34.87 kgs showing grade 2 obesity. Most important is immediate tsh reduction. Thanks for the question.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Hypothyroidism is a a condition that has to be treated for the lifetime. You should not stop treatment on your own because of normal or low TSH level. Dosage of Thyroxine needs to be adjusted. Since you have stopped the treatment on your own, it is possible that TSH level might have gone up resulting in to increased hypothyroidism. Thanks.

6 weeks plus is too early to predict outcome of growth. Thyroid is low on borderline and I would not suggest medicine during early pregnancy. Be sure that baby growth will pick up within few days specially if medical reports are normal you may be given medicines for low thyroid later. Do write back after a month. Eat a low fat but light high protein diet to avoid vomiting.

Blood Sugar Levels at Work

Confused?
Feeling Jittery?
Increased heart beat?
Lack of concentration?
Dizziness?
Light-headed when standing?
Blurred Vision?
Tiredness?
Hungry?
HUNGRY?

All of the above can be caused by low blood sugar levels, being hungry
and being dehydrated.

EAT
It is important to eat little and often to keep your blood sugar levels
stable and to prevent crashes that result in dizzy spells, lack of
concentration and confusion. All of which increase the chances of
having an accident and injuring yourself, your colleagues and the
general public.

A healthy lifestyle is to be applauded but you must consider the impact
of any diet on your well-being. Eating nothing or very little all day will
only have a negative impact on your performance, concentration and
ability to do your job. See our top tips for getting healthy and being
safe whilst at work.

TOP TIPS

Always eat breakfast this sets you up for the day and lets your body know you?re up and raring to go!

Eat little and often throughout the day to avoid becoming hungry and getting the inevitable afternoon slump after lunch.

Keep snacks to eat in between jobs like fresh fruit, vegetables, bars and (healthy) crisps.

Drink plenty of liquid and avoid sugary fizzy drinks and energy drinks, these create a false sugar rush that can result in dizziness, shaking and loss of concentration.

Eat a balanced diet ? use the ?Eat Well? plate as a guide of what you should be eating daily

You can take 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. 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,

Role of Homeopathy In Diabetes

Diabetes or diabetes mellitus is referred to as a group of disorders that are characterized by a high blood sugar level. Diabetes mellitus occurs when the secretion of insulin (a pancreatic hormone responsible for converting the sugar from consumed foods into energy) is insufficient or the body cells do not properly respond to insulin. Insufficient secretion of insulin causes glucose formation in the bloodstream and mixes with the urine.

The psychological factors responsible for Diabetes Mellitus. In majority (not all), this disease originates with some recent stress in life. This disease is an epidemic in late thirties till fifties. In this age, a person is productive in his profession and most of the time there are job or financial issues that play a very vital role in generating stress and hence Diabetes.

Mostly, in my practice patients reported, before developing Diabetes, a recent financial loss or strain, love disappointment, a betrayal, or fear of loosing a job etc., sedentary habits, diet and genetic factors are secondary. Homeopathy keep such things in account before prescribing and in many cases Diabetes is irreversible. Thers is a vast field of diabetic complications where Homeopathy has a lot to offer.
