I am 62 years old and am diabetic from past 15 years and using medicines. My triglycerides level is 223 and hdl@ ldl is normal. I am using Rosumac F one tablet daily. Should I use this medicine permanently even the levels comes normal.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if triglyceride level comes to normal you can stop fenofibrate. Statin may be continued. Looking at height and weight it is clear that you are over weight with a bmi of 29.43 kgs/m2, very close to being classified as grade 1 obesity. This has to be reduced considerably. (normal bmi <23 kgs/m2). Your ideal body weight has to be around 47 kgs. Weight reduction will help in bringing down triglycerides to normal. You have not mentioned about current sugar levels and hba1c%. Ideally fasting should be closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<7, to say good blood sugar control is there. Thanks.

As funny as it sounds, sleep deprivation may make you fat — and not just because you're susceptible to cases of the late-night munchies (although there's that too). Women who get less than four hours of sleep per night have a slower metabolism than those who snooze for a full eight hours, according to researchers at the University of Chicago. So don't skimp on your zzz's, and you'll be rewarded with an extra edge when it comes to shedding pounds quickly.

Preserving Your Fertility

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology
IVF Specialist, Delhi
Preserving Your Fertility

Doctors believe that all women are born with a certain quantity of eggs as well as chances of conception. Also, all bodies are unique with individual strengths and weaknesses. Fertility tests can help in unravelling a number of issues as well as the health of your reproductive system as a whole. It is important to address various lifestyle issues in order to retain your fertility and ensure that you have a hassle free conception. Read on to know more about the ways in which you can preserve your fertility.

  1. Oral health: There are a number of medical studies that go as far as suggesting that the state of the woman’s oral health is a significant factor when it comes to the proper functioning of her reproductive system. Many women who have required treatment for infertility are said to have suffered from oral health problems like inflammation and gum disease. One needs to avoid these issues so as to have more reproductive success. So, it is important to brush and floss on a regular basis in order to have better oral and reproductive health.
  2. Food: When we are talking about oral health, how can food intake be too far behind? In order to maintain good oral health, it is important to take care of your eating habits. One should steer clear of excessive sugary food intake as well as junk food intake which end up harming the gums as well as the overall system of the patient. Also, you must avoid eating processed carbohydrates like white bread and white rice. It is also a good idea to get your proteins from plant sources rather than animal sources. Furthermore, it is also a good option to strike trans fat off the list and to pick unsaturated fats instead. This kind of a diet is known as low glycemic diet which keeps the sugar levels stable. This helps in boosting all body functions in general, including one’s fertility.
  3. Smoking: As per a number of medical studies, about 13 per cent of the infertility cases are linked with excessive smoking. Tobacco has an adverse effect on the state of your fertility, and it usually makes the eggs deteriorate at a much faster rate. It can also cause early miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy, which is a dangerous condition where the egg gets lodged in the fallopian tube. Smoking can also bring about early menopause.
  4. Vitamin supplements: Many doctors suggest that once a woman has entered her child bearing years, it is important to start taking multivitamins as these contain folic acid. Folic acid is an important nutrient that helps in foetal growth and stimulates ovulation. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

I' m a 45yo insulin dependent diabetic male. Am on lantus (once a day, 18 units) and lispro (humalog) pre-meals. Also, take a blood thinner-statin combo (ecosprin av 75). My question: should I take my insulin shots (lantus, lispro or both) before my exercise or after? what should be the target blood sugar before exercise? I play badminton or squash for 40 min every morning. I ask this because I find my blood sugar high even an hour after exercise. I don' t take insulin before exercise and have a light meal half hour before it. An egg and two toast or an egg and a banana. Let me know. Thanks.

Take your insulin in routine. Homolog before meals n lantus bedtime. What is more important you should check your sugar before n after exercise. If it is persistently high you can increase the dose of lantus by 4. 6 units. That won't increase the risk of hypoglycemia but if add homolog before exercise, chances of hypo will increase.

The thyroid test results show that she has high tsh levels, it is subclinical hypothyroidism. Presently there is no problem unless she has any symptoms. But she should check her thyroid levels once in 6 months. Also avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables and fruits. Use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Exercise daily to avoid weight gain.

Diet in Diabetes a commonly asked Question ?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), MD - Ayurveda

Diet in Diabetes a commonly asked Question ?
Dear friends, a proper measure for knowing and managing your diabetes will be to ensure a hba1c below 6.5%. Regarding diet, we indians have high carbohydrate diet. You have to closely observe your plate and you can come up with a better diet plan for yourself. To simplify it, identify the items which are carb rich in your plate and try to compensate the same with protein and fibres, for eg cut down a roti and increase sabji, dal or salad. To have a better control you can do a monthly self glucose monitoring 3 times a day and keep a track of the food with it. Check fasting sugar, sugar one hour prior to lunch and 2 hrs post lunch, and note down the details of her breakfast and lunch items. Modify as per my earlier suggestions and within a week you will see your blood sugar level responding. Keep a regular exercise schedule, around 45 mins walk would also do. Best of luck.
Please note self glucose monitoring and diet control is the only way to manage diabetes.

Dry fruits are rich in protein and cholestrol and can be beneficial to a normal individual if taken in limited quantity of two pieces per day and it's better to be avoided by diabetic people.

SAY 'NO' TO DIABETES

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition, DNHE, P.G. Diploma in Panchkarma, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Hapur
SAY 'NO' TO DIABETES

Tip 1: Get more physical activity
There are many benefits to regular physical activity. Exercise can help you:
• Lose weight
• Lower your blood sugar
• Boost your sensitivity to insulin — which helps keep your blood sugar within a normal range
Research shows that both aerobic exercise and resistance training can help control diabetes, but the greater benefit comes from a fitness program that includes both.
Tip 2: Get plenty of fiber
It's rough, it's tough — and it may help you:
• Reduce your risk of diabetes by improving your blood sugar control
• Lower your risk of heart disease
• Promote weight loss by helping you feel full
Foods high in fiber include fruits, vegetables, beans, whole grains, nuts and seeds.
Tip 3: Go for whole grains
Although it's not clear why, whole grains may reduce your risk of diabetes and help maintain blood sugar levels. Try to make at least half your grains whole grains. Many foods made from whole grains come ready to eat, including various breads, pasta products and many cereals. Look for the word "whole" on the package and among the first few items in the ingredient list.
Tip 4: Lose extra weight
If you're overweight, diabetes prevention may hinge on weight loss. Every pound you lose can improve your health, and you may be surprised by how much. Participants in one large study who lost a modest amount of weight — around 7 percent of initial body weight — and exercised regularly reduced the risk of developing diabetes by almost 60 percent.
Tip 5: Skip fad diets and just make healthier choices
Low-carb diets, the glycemic index diet or other fad diets may help you lose weight at first, but their effectiveness at preventing diabetes isn't known nor are their long-term effects. And by excluding or strictly limiting a particular food group, you may be giving up essential nutrients. Instead, think variety and portion control as part of an overall healthy-eating plan.

How to control sugar level in blood? And which food is better to eat sugar patient. Sugar level in pasting is 132.
Mr. lybrate-user, Fasting glucose 132 mg / 100 ml, is showing there is diabetes. It is better to check after food glucose & HbA1c% to confirm diabetes and also to decide on type of treatment to be given. First thing is to start appropriate treatment and simultaneously take a properly planned restricted diet and exercise daily for at least 1 hour. A person with diabetes should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, pastries, bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks, junk foods, fructose corn syrup containing foods. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits about 100 g a day. If you need specific guidelines in controlling blood glucose levels then come in a private conversation with following details: current fasting, Pp glucose levels, HbA1c%, diet pattern and extent of daily exercise being done. Thanks.
