What are the advantages of doing jogging and skipping? Can it be done at anytime by anyone without considering their age and the underlying bone and muscular disorders. Is this indicative to thyroid dysfunction people? kindly explain.

Mr. Lybrate-user, jogging and skipping both are good exercise. The advantage of doing those is one burns more calories per unit of time compared to walking. Both these are considered as high impact activity, so if any person has preexisting cardiac problem then such exercises are not advised. Age is no barrier. I am my self running 70 now, I run12 to 15 kms 2 or 3 times a week and skip quite a lot (about 1200 to 1600, in batches of 200 each time). Always one should start slow and then scale up. On doing regular exercise bones do become strong.

If you are vegetarian for ethical and other personal reason, then you want to be sure to include plenty of high protein plant based foods. I do not encourage regular consumption of soy "designer" foods such as energy bars. Tofu and tempeh would be better choices. Over consumption of gluten - the protein portion of grains such as wheat and oats - is also not the best choice, especially if you experience any GI disturbances. Nut butters, such as almond, are good. I was vegetarian for a long time, but realize how much better a "machine" I am now that I eat eggs and fish. 2 eggs in the morning can carry me successfully for many hours. This is giving my adrenal glands the support they need. Fish provides those heart healthy fats we all need; salmon is the number one choice. You'll just need to figure out your approach, and get a food chart to see how much protein is in the foods you choose. All grains and beans have protein, it just takes more. Your diet is now more carb focused, so it does require more fine tuning to stabilize your blood sugars. You can include flax seed oil which might work for you, but folks with long standing diabetes often need fish oil. A multivitamin, B-complex can be purchased anywhere. Just make sure your vitamins are hypoallergenic, preservative free, etc.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if blood glucose is high, (well over 200 to 300 mg/100 ml) then a considerable amount of glucose is lost in the urine. That causes weight loss. Once diabetes is controlled and blood glucose levels return to normal, weight stabilses. You may have lost weight when blood glucose level was not well controlled. If now it is in good control, weight may not be lost. So please give current details including hba1c% (actual number, do not say it is normal). Even other test results like tsh and thyroid hormone levels. Looking at those details I may be able to guide. Thanks.

Hi sir sugar patients male can drink bear, if they can drink how many units they can drink in a week.
Mr. Lybrate-user, it is good avoid alcohol totally in diabetes. Because it gives empty calories, can create unawareness of hypoglycemia. Plus not good for liver. So my advise to every patient is to avoid alcohol totally. But ultimately choice is of the patient. Further alcohol content in beer differs from 4.2 to 8.5% depending upon the type, so fixing a quantity is also not possible. Thanks.

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, avoid alcohl if you take. even any side effect you should take this medicines. ignore side effects.pl.

Hi sir, I am a diabetic patient, can I have 3 re times a day using fenugreek seeds?
Mr. lybrate-user, Fenugreek seeds contain a good amount of fiber, which helps in slowing down carbohydrate absorption. So taking thsese seeds is helpful. But whether there is direct reduction in blood glucose and how much, is difficult to say. Thanks.
