I am a diabetic since last 3 years. I am not too fat. I tried ayurvedic medication but nothing worked. Prescribe some medicine for normal daily life.

Try to take a teaspoon of methi powder early morning and bedtime. But remember no food works in isolation. It has to be coupled with a planned healthy diet. I would suggest you go for a personalised diet plan for yourself.

I am pregnant and diabetic too. I just want a proper diet chart according to time.

I am pregnant and diabetic too. I just want a proper diet chart according to time.
You may be able to control gestational diabetes by eating well and exercising regularly. This means you won't need to take medication. Sugar (glucose) is one of your body's main sources of energy. Your body uses a hormone called insulin to control the amount of sugar in your blood and to turn it into fuel. But pregnancy hormones reduce the effect of insulin, so your body has to make more to be able to use any sugar in your blood. If you have gestational diabetes, your body isn't producing enough insulin. As a result, your blood sugar levels can get very high and that can lead to problems for your baby. It's possible to keep your blood sugar levels under control by changing what you eat and combining your new healthy diet with regular exercise. In fact, up to 90 per cent of women with gestational diabetes control it this way. DIET There are two types of carbohydrate that give you energy when you eat them. They are: complex carbohydrates, or starch simple carbohydrates, or sugars Sometimes, complex carbohydrates are described as good carbs, and simple carbohydrates as bad. But this doesn't give the whole picture. Simple carbohydrates include added sugars, such as table sugar and honey, as well as natural sugars, found in fruit and milk. Eating plenty of fruit and some dairy products is a healthy thing to do. So when people call simple sugars bad carbs, they are talking about added sugars. If you have gestational diabetes and you have too many foods and drinks high in added sugars, it can upset your blood glucose control. It's not healthy for people without diabetes, either. At least half the energy in our diets should come from carbohydrate, mostly as starchy carbohydrates. Starchy carbohydrates are: bread rice pasta grains potatoes Try to have wholegrain varieties where possible. They provide extra fibre, which is important for your digestion. If you have gestational diabetes, the types of food and drink you'll be advised to have are no different from the type of healthy diet everyone should have. Your food should be high in complex carbohydrates and low in saturated fat. You should not have added sugars, although you won't have to cut them out completely. It's best if you eat fruit, milk and yoghurts as part of a mixed meal. Your body will then absorb the simple sugars in the juice or dairy food more slowly. That's because the sugars are mixed with other food elements, such as fibre and protein. AND USE LOW GLYCEMIC INDEX FOODS LIKE pasta made with durum wheat flour apples, oranges, pears, peaches beans and lentils sweetcorn porridge Eat plenty of high-fibre foods. These foods tend to have a low GI. This may help to keep your blood sugar levels from going too high after meals. High-fibre foods include: fresh fruit and vegetables wholegrain breads and cereals dried peas, beans and pulses.

My father have diabetes in 2 year what should I do?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda,
My father have diabetes in 2 year what should I do?
Without knowing complete medical history and current status of disease, its unfair to comment. Common thing is do walks/ yoga, pranayam and meditation and take herbal support in addition to current med. If response is good, may switch to alternative pathy. Any pathy you take, generally may go for life. Herbal will be without side effect.

Your wt should be 52 kg according to your height. Include less oil less salt less sugar in your diet. Do exercise. Include low calorie foods in your diet. Take 5 meals in a day in frequent intervals. Because of thyroid your weight is too much.

When on treatment with thyroxine tsh levels should be maintained between 3 to 4 milli units/ml. Once the treatment is started, it is necessary to check tsh level after 6 to 8 weeks. I think you have done it, and still the tsh is showing a higher level. It means current dose is inadequate. If you give details of her tsh level when diagnosis was made along with her height and weight, I can guide in terms of correct dose for her. But even otherwise she needs to increase the dose. Initially tsh needs to be checked every 6 to 8 weeks, till it is brought to desired level as mentioned above. With regards.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise. Check your blood sugar both in fasting and 2 hours after meal. If still your blood sugar is high than your medication needs to be changed.

Hi are you taking the tablets thyroxine regularly or have you stopped? if you have stopped then please start again, because the treatment is for life time. You can not stop it in between and expect to get rid of symptoms as well as loose weight. Your tsh levels return to normal only the treatment is going on. Therefore restart the treatment right away. Then only your effort in reducing weight will be fruitful.
