High sugar levels during pregnancy does not necessarily lead to diabetes after the baby is born. It is a natural tendency for the body to produce more sugar to feed the baby. But ofcourse, you have to take care. To reduce weight, dependency on medication and to remain healthy, it is necessary for you to adopt a very healthy lifestyle that includes adequate exercise, diet, relaxation techniques and positive care for you baby. Do not aim for 55 kg. Aim to have a healthy, flexible and strong body and mind.

Hii.  I have sugar from last year so what will be it effect on my body or health?
Mr Aksh, If you have diabetes mellitus and if it is not in control then there can be serious effects on almost every system of the body. For example : Eyes are affected very badly, can cause retinopathy, increase cataract, lead to glaucoma etc. Affects microvasculature (small vessels) and macrovasuculature (large vessels), these effects lead to problems with eyes, kidneys, heart, nervous system and lower limbs. So controlling sugar and bringing nearer normal is absolutely essential.So if any one has diabetes then it should be immediately treated and brought under control.

Hello, we have self made specialised medicine prepared for complete management of thyroid. It includes correction of weight, stopping hair fall and alleviating other symptoms such as weakness, lethargy, increased sleep, infertility etc. This is how this treatment minimizes dependence on artificial hormones and stimulates thyroid gland to produce it's own natural hormone. At the same time, this treatment increases metabolic rate thereby helping maintain good weight over long term. Kindly let me know your age, height, weight and other symptoms if any. This information is vital so as to arrive at perfect prescription. Regards

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. For controlling high blood glucose levels there are a number of drugs, I can suggest a few of those. However, unless all the details are known like FBG, PP blood glucose levels, HbA1c%, weight and height of the patient, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise, it is not possible to suggest any drug. It is also necessary to know if there is any current treatment and its dosage. I suggest please come in a private consultation with all the above details, then I will be guide her through appropriate treatment and help control the glucose levels. In the mean time following precautions need to be taken: 1) Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items, colas and all foods made out of maida. 2) Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day), 3) Exercise daily for at least 1 hour, brisk walking is an excellent option. & try and maintain near normal weight. I await your response. Thanks.

It is not only the arms, whole body seems to be growing. Hypothyroidism does lead to weight gain. Get thyroid assay done, that ill tell if there is any problem. Thanks.

I have a problem of uric acid from several years. Can I got a permanent solution of this.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.

If diabetes has developed following certain drugs as mentioned, some times when the drug which has caused it, if discontinued, sugar levels may be reduced or even become normal. So it is very difficult to tell whether the diabetes can be controlled without drug or not. It will be good if a complete diabetic profile is done - fasting, pp hba1c% and even lipid profile. Report the same then I will be able to guide. In the mean time she should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries and sweetened aerated drinks. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads. Take care with regards.
