Mr. lybrate-user, Low B12 can lead to megaloblstic anemia (anemia with large RBCs), peripheral neuritis, glossitis, hyperflexia, loss of proprioception, poor co-ordination, ataxia and affective behavioral changes. It is necessary get the condition corrected soon. Simultaneously it is very important to keep blood glucose in excellent control. Thanks.

MD - Consultant Physician

How much is the PPBS? If it is less than 180 mg% then it's fine. It's more important to see what your HBA1C is. If that is close to 7, then it's sufficient.

What should be an ideal diet for 50 year male with activity living habit who is suffering from diabetics.

What should be an ideal diet for 50 year male with activity living habit who is suffering from diabetics.
Mr. Lybrate-user, diet plan for a person with diabetes is not very different f than one for a normal person. He needs to take a balanced diet, with 50 to 55% of calories coming from carbs, 15% from proteins & 25 to 30 % from fats. But major difference is in relation to type of foods. He should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), fructose corn syrup containing foods, highly processed food products and high fat milk products. He should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). Always use whole grain products and flour. Use more of millets and fiber containing seeds like flax seeds, fenugreek etc. As regards a specific diet plan for you I need to know following details: 1) fasting & pp glucose levels, hbac1%, 2) present drugs with dosage, 3) extent of daily exercise & 4) present diet pattern. You will have to plan caloric intake based on above and ideal body weight (72 kgs). Thanks.

Butter whether it's white or yellow, has a high fat content which is not good for health if eaten on a daily basis, having excess may lead to issues related to cholesterol. Kindly consult privately for detailed diet thanks.

Also give pressure in the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from your toe for 2 minutes. Finally give a good massage for both feet in hot water.

What are the symptoms of Thyroid disease and is there any correlation between thyroid and increasing heart beat rate. What are the precautions.

Mr. Lybrate-user, in hyperthyroidism heart rate goes up, also there may be palpitation. In hypothyroidism there is slower heart rate. Hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism both have different symptoms. So please clarify which particular disease are you referring. Precautions are again different. However, it is good to use iodinated salt, exercise regularly and check thyroid homone levels periodically.

Diabetes causes loss of libido in the long run. Herbal sex enhancer treatment is supportive but it's advised to take parallel anti-diabetic herbal support in addition to your normal antidiabetic treatment. It will give better effect of 'Stambhak' herbs (which prevents early ejaculation) in sex enhancer formula.

Kindly let me know what is hypoglycemia n why it is not recommended to exercise if d sugar level is above 250 mg.
It is lower levels of glucose in blood. And exercise in such patients will tend to increase glucose level in blood again..

Diabetes is a condition where your body is starving as the energy from the carbohydrates in food is not reaching the cells and is circulating in the blood.

The idea here is not to give a diabetic a restricted or reduced diet but a well planned meal/diet.

My mother has thyroid of thinness, someone said that do not eat spinach, cabbage m etc. I want to ask why to avoid eating these vegetables in thinness thyroid?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Sanskarji, If your mother is taking Thyronorm tablet then she is having hypothyroidism. In this condition following things need to be avoided - Soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts and coffee, as these are affecting thyroxine action. She can consume other vegetables than those mentioned above. She should consume good deal of salads and fruits, Use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Can take milk and milk products with low fat.

Hello, It is essential to control blood glucose effectively with fasting closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. Then all the possible complications of diabetes can be controlled. Thanks.
