Lybrate-user, diabetes melltus if confirmed, then has to be treated with appropriate drugs. The commonly seen diabetes in adults is t2, which can be well controlled by oral anti- diabetes drugs. There are a number of them. Choice of the drug depends on the severity of blood sugar level and presence of resistance to insulin. Some times oral drugs do not give adequate relief, then insulin injections are used along with oral drugs. Apart from drugs diet and exercise play e very important role. Because over weight, inactivity and junk foods are major contributors for development and increasing the severity of diabetes. Diet for each patient has to be very specifically advised. But general rule is to avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks (colas), highly processed food products and fructose corn syrup containing products. Plus alcohol and smoking should be completely avoided. Daily exercise of about 1 hour is a must. Weight should be maintained near normal. One should consume good deal of green leafy vegetables and salads. Thanks.

Fasting blood sugar suggests she has impaired fasting blood sugar as above 100 mg%. However she should also get blood sugar test after 2 hours after 75 grammes of glucose intake by mouth a level above 140 mg% to 199 mg% suggests impaired glucose tolerance and is prediabetic stage. Wherein approach is to reduce weight, regular exercise like walking for minimum 40 minutes a day and avoiding taking of free sugar. No medications are necessary at this stage unless blood sugar goes up to 200 mg% periodical blood tests say once in two months and hba1c test once in 6 months will be helpful.

Hair Loss Trigger: Thyroid Problems

The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland at the front of the neck. It produces hormones that regulate many processes throughout the body. If the gland makes too much or too little thyroid hormone, the hair growth cycle may falter. But hair loss is rarely the only sign of a thyroid problem. Other symptoms include weight gain or loss, very dry skin or eczema, sensitivity to cold or heat, and changes in heart rate.

MY glycolate blood sugar is 7.8, what does that actually mean, is it that the sugar is not under control?

MY glycolate blood sugar is 7.8, what does that actually mean, is it that the sugar is not under control?
Provided the test is done from a reliable lab, it means that your blood sugar is not under control. Your average blood sugar over the past 3 months has been around 170 mg/dl. The target should be less than 7 percent. Ensure that you take your medicines on time and follow your diet and exercise a bit more sincerely.

Tsh 4.3 milli units/ml is higher than upper limit (range 0.4 to 4.0mu/ml). Therefore, it is most likely you have the thyroxine deficiency. This condition can ead to a multiple of symptoms including hair loss. Hence, immediatley treatment with replacing of thyroid hormone has to be started, dosage can be decided on your weight and tsh levels. Please come up with a private question so that drug therapy can written by l me.

You need to have diet plan based on your bmi & activities. Whatever we eat is metabolised by the body for the energy needed to do daily work and the excess is stored as fat. Abdomen is the first place to gain weight and last to disappear. In brief, weight reduction can be achieved only by reducing the intake of food 1/3 of what you take now. And by appropriate exercise plans for each part like belly, thighs, legs / chest etc. To burn off fat. Some tips 1) drink three or four cups of water whenever you feel hungry and just before eating food 2) take boiled or raw vegetable like cucumber, carrot etc. As half of your diet. Then take 1/2 of your total diet as sprouted pulses / proteinaceous food like roti, cooked pulses and remaining with rice or other carbohydrates. Oil or ghee etc. Should be just bare minimum. And do aerobic exercises, running, jogging or at least walking briskly 3-5 kms and swimming if possible, and in a gym if feasible. The most important is to burn off the energy intake by exercises. There is no short cut or medicines without exercise & dieting to take just as mush food as needed for your activities. The food we eat is utilised for our energy needs and the remaining will be stored as fat which leads to obesity. It is better to do some tests.

Amla can be taken in diabetic kya? And what we should eat in diabetic. please help.
Yes amla can be taken in diabetes- it's a good vit c source but not the one preserved in sugar/jaggery (amla ka murraba). Major dietary advice for diabetes is to avoid high fat content - so don't take any fried stuff. Take foods with low or moderate glycemic index. Glycemic index of any food item is the speed at which your sugar rises in blood after consuming it.
