I have read your query and understood your concerns. Lack of concentration can be a part of anxiety, depression and lots of stress. If you are having any persistent stress in your life then it needs to be addressed first. Relaxation therapy like yoga and meditation will help you a lot. Following are some tips to increase your mood and concentration: - engage in your hobbies - play indoor games with your children like carrom, chess, puzzle games etc. - play sudoku and solve crossword puzzles - talk to friends and go for outing whenever you are free - keep distance from alcohol and other drugs - make a schedule of activities to perform as per priority and follow the schedule - if you are forgetting appointments or meeting then make use of application for reminder - become social person if you are not - if your mind is distracted somewhere start counting backwards from 100. By the time you reach 50, you shall find yourself relieved. - keep yourself updated about current political affairs - take help from friends - take a good night sleep of at least 8 hours.

You need to get throughly evaluated if the problem is recurrent and probably need endoscopy to rule out any potential problem in your intestine, if the diarrhea is recurrent and not subsiding. Any blood in the diarrhea? please send me your detailed reports.

What is ...
Hi, looking at the details mentioned her sugar levels look good. In fact fasting should come down to about 100 mg. Walking 500 mts is as good as doing nothing. She is already over weight with a bmi of 25.44 kg / m2 (normal <23 kg/m2). Her ideal body weight should be 45 kgs. So weight reduction is a necessity. Anginal pain usually comes on exertion. If you have any doubt get an ecg done to see if there is any problem or a stress test (tmt). But as regards diabetes control she needs to increase her walking to at least 45 minutes plus.

Hello Your HbA1C value is very good. Which means your blood sugar is under good control because your taking the tablet. If you stop it, blood sugars will increase. Maybe after 3 months if your HbA1C reduces further, instead of stopping the medicine, dosage should be reduced.

Hello, if weight gain is occurring due to hypothyroidism, then controlling that condition is very important, because if hypothyroidism is not in check, efforts reduce weight will not succeed. So it is essential to bring tsh levels between 3 to 4 milli units/l, then only efforts to reduce weight will show result. Once tsh level is low enough and you are on a balanced restricted diet and regular exercise for more than 1 hour a day, then weight reduction is possible.

Hypothyroidism can only be kept in check, there's no cure. You have to thyroxine tablets in the morning before taking any thing about 2 hrs before any food.

What is diabetes. What are the different types of diabetes. What precautions should be taken.

BHMS
Homeopath,
What is diabetes. What are the different types of diabetes. What precautions should be taken.
Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the blood stream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. Take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnemna sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Also you need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. Also you need to take a low carbohydrate rich diet.

Watch your weight. If you are obese then try to lose weight by regular exercise. Eat fresh fruit, vegetables, whole wheat products and some pulses (high in purine) every day. Enjoy low-fat milk and dairy products daily. Keep an eye on the purine content of food. Avoid offal, shellfish and crustaceans and tinned fish such as sardines in oil. Uric acid diet should be relatively high in carbohydrates, moderate in protein and low in fat. Complex carbohydrates like whole grain cereals, fruits and vegetables contain fiber that can help in proper digestion of the foods and assimilation of the nutrients. Eat no more than 100 gm of meat, sausages, fish and poultry a day. Say no to alcohol and sweetened cold drinks. Fresh fruits like apples, bananas, oranges and lime are beneficial. Black cherries are considered to be beneficial in reducing uric acid levels. Drink at least two liters of low-calorie fluids a day. Recommended fluids are water, tea and fruit juice. Please note that normal uric acid levels in our body. Men 3.5 to 7.0 mg/dl, women 2.5 to 5.7 mg/dl.

You can eat everything except meat, milk and paneer. Once the uric acid level comes down after medication, you can start eating these things in moderation. You can take fruits, vegetables, fish.
