From the information you have given, your husband seems to have borderline diabetes. He need to take care of his diet, for diabetes as well as constipation. He can drink 2 glasses of warm water daily in the morning and also his water intake per day should be minimum 2.5-3 litres. He needs high fibrous diet which contains lots of leafy vegetables and salads. 45 min either yoga or walk will help in controlling his conditions.

I think you must quickly get HbA1c done. If it is beyond 8, you must consult immediately. High blood sugar for a long time will lead to disastrous complications.

Dear, first of all my wishes for the holy month of ramadan. By going through your history and what you have written one thing is sure you have an habbit of getting irritable very soon. Please try and relax as it also affects your blood pressure and sugar. Your weight is high 84 kg might be due to hypothyroidism (water retention) or you need to reduce your calorie intake and restrict it to 2000 cals. Regarding your question of daily walks, of course walking helps in calorie burning reducing the fat deposits which help reduce the insulin resistance in in type 2 diabetics. It is advisable to take a walk for around 1 hr daily covering 6-7 kms which will burn around 300 cals. I hope your queries are resolved.

Mr. Lybrate-user, to control sugar level one has to take prescribed drugs regularly without fail. Take a restricted diet that meets exact caloric requirement based on ideal body weight, sugar levels and extent of daily exercises. One has to avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Also avoid sweetened aerated drinks, products containing fructose corn syrup, high fat cheese. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits. Daily exercise of 1 hour plus is necessary to maintain normal weight and burn extra calories. Should maintain fasting around 100 mg and pp between 150 to 160 mg/100ml and hba1c%<7.

Benefits of Artificial Insemination

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Benefits of Artificial Insemination

There are many reasons why the problem of infertility occurs in many humans. Few of the main reasons of this are the inability of male partner to produce sperms and inability of the fertilized egg to get rooted in the uterus. It is in such conditions that the procedure of artificial insemination is carried out to infuse the sperm into the uterus of the female.

Steps Involved in Artificial Insemination-

There are certain steps that need to be followed before you get pregnant if you are planning on artificial insemination, and that would be of great use in providing an economically safe pregnancy. Artificial insemination is a technique that is of great use to couples who cannot get pregnant. The procedure is simple, but it has its own side-effects. It is a commonly used procedure and which is less expensive than other treatment options for infertility. The success rate of this procedure is about 86%, and a couple needs to make a few attempts to get pregnant.

Need for Artificial Insemination-

The effectiveness of the artificial insemination process plays a vital role for the women having fertility issues, especially while selecting the treatment. Many couples prefer the procedure of Intrauterine Insemination when fertility medicines do not work effectively. The procedure of artificial insemination which is a reproduction technique comprises of introducing the semen into the vagina, uterus, or cervix of a woman without sexual intercourse.

The artificial insemination procedure is made use not only in humans but even for breeding in animals. Sometimes the procedure is done if a woman has a condition called endometriosis or in other words, abnormality in her reproductive organs. The method is also suggested by the Doctors when the real reason for infertility cannot be identified.

Why Artificial Insemination?

The procedure is a great benefit for a woman who is single and desires to have children. The best part is that during the artificial insemination, the sperm used during the treatment is tested for any genetic disorder. This way, it reduces the chance of any disorder being transmitted to the child from a parent. The procedure is much cheaper than natural reproduction, and the main benefit of artificial insemination is that desirable characteristics of the parent are passed on quickly to the child.

Overall, the benefits of this procedure are that it is very effective and prevents any genetic disorder in the child, and the cost of the procedure is comparatively lesser.

My father is suffering from uric acid problems, can I give him one glass milk daily?

Water flushes out toxins including excess uric acid from the body. Have at least 10- 12 glasses of water daily. Cherries also neutralize the acids and help prevent inflammation and pain. 200 gms per day is very effective in bringing down uric acid. Malic acid in apple neutralizes uric acid and thus provides relief to the sufferers. You should consume one apple daily after a meal. 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. 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. 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. Consume green tea on a regular basis to control hyperuricemia (high uric acid levels) and lower your risk of developing gout.
