Hello lybrate-user. Even nicotine chewing gum can not cure tobacco addiction. Unless he develops very strong willpower. And get his HBA1C checked which reflects 3 months average sugar.

My mother is 62 years old & suffering from diabetes & blood pressure. She mainly suffers due to unbalance of sugar level. Can you suggest what precautions (i. E food chart.) shroud we take to control sugar level?

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for more than 2-3 hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Fruits should be had as a mid meal. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Consult once again with another endocrinologist when in doubt. Even slight increase in tsh levels calls for help. If you don't have symptoms and only blood tests indicate the problem, may be the reason for your doctor's hesitation to start you on unnecessary meds. However, even if you don't have any symptoms, these levels are elevated remarkably. It indicates that the brain is working overtime to push the thyroid gland to function at its normal pace. Imagine the thyroid gland to be a child who has to study and score marks. A hypothyroid gland means the child who is slow and lazy and hence his marks are less. Now imagine the tsh to be the mother who pushes the child and constantly urges him to study, just like tsh would stimulate and urge the thyroid cells to work harder and secrete the desired levels of hormones. The disorder is confirmed when despite how much ever the tsh is high (ie. How much ever the mother pushes and stays awake), the thyroid gland is unable to do anymore and still functioning subnormally (meaning that the child couldn't be any more pushed to secure the marks). What you need to do is understood why child has started becoming dull in his performance only then can you solve this problem completely. This is exactly what homeopathic method thyroid treatment does. If meds are aimed at correcting the thyroid deficiency than merely supplementing, the problem can be fixed from the base. Give it a thought!

Hello, not necessary, provided diabetes in control. I think your doctor suggested for insulin to balance the sugar levels in body. Don't worry she will be good, please manage a good healthy diet. Like more protein from soya, wheat, and other plant sources. And add fiber and omega-3 food supplements.

Dear madam diabetes is a disease which deteriorates the body with time- hence in youth or in early stages of diabetes - human body hardly shows any long term complications. Diabetes does not lead to infertility but does lead to loss of libido and impotence. You have nothing to fear as far as conceiving with your diabetic husband is concerned.

And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications , Drinking too much alcohol, Genetics disorder , hypothyroidism , Immune-suppressing drugs, Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity, psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods.

This is a case of diabetes mellitus type 2, due to deficiency of insulin production probably. Insulin is a hormone which helps to metabolize sugar in our blood. Fasting blood sugar may remain normal sometimes, which does not mean that she cannot be diabetic. In your case, it is postprandial hyperglycemia which is also a feature of diabetes mellitus type 2. So, consult any endocrinologist or diabetologist very urgently. If she is left untreated at this moment, than her blood sugar may rise more. High blood sugar is very harmful heart, brain, kidney, nerves and eyes. So, maintain diabetic diet from now onward.
