Hello these days thyroid issues are increasing due to high iodine content and there are adverse effects of it on body so follow this as you get a pack of salt fry it nicely in a pan till there is a colour change of light brown n during this process you may find the smoke and odour coming from that frying pan, (which is very bad) that is iodine which gets evaporated. Try this then you may not suffer for hair fall n others symptoms.

Mr. lybrate-user, If you have diabetes it is absolutely essential to get blood glucose under strict control with fasting closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg and HbA1c% <6.8. If these levels are achieved, then your general health will remain in very good shape. Apart from taking appropriate treatment you will have to exercise regularly for at least 1 hour a day plus take a balanced and restricted diet. Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items, foods made out of maida, sweetened aerated drinks, sweet corn syrup containing products and highly processed packaged foods. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads. Fruits like water melon, orange, sweet lime, pomegranate, papaya, apple, pear and guava can be taken. But with good glucose control and only about 100 g a day.

I am having sugar. what precaution should I take and how to reduce weight? Please help me.

I am having sugar. what precaution should I take and how to reduce weight? Please help  me.
The biggest risk factor for developing diabetes is being overweight, but not all body fat is created equal. Your risk is higher if you tend to carry your weight around your abdomen?the so-called ?spare tire??as opposed to your hips and thighs. So why are ?apple? shaped people more at risk than ?pears?? ?Pears? store most of their fat close below the skin. ?Apples? store their weight around their middle, much of it deep within the belly surrounding their abdominal organs and liver. This type of deep fat is closely linked to insulin resistance and diabetes. In fact, many studies show that waist size is a better predictor of diabetes risk than BMI (body mass index). You are at an increased risk of developing diabetes if you are: ? A woman with a waist circumference of 35 inches or more ? A man with a waist circumference of 40 inches or more To measure your waist circumference, place a tape measure around your bare abdomen just above your hip bone. Be sure that the tape is snug (but does not compress your skin) and that it is parallel to the floor. Relax, exhale, and measure your waist. Eating right is vital if you?re trying to prevent or control diabetes. While exercise is also important, what you eat has the biggest impact when it comes to weight loss. But what does eating right for diabetes mean? You may be surprised to hear that your nutritional needs are virtually the same everyone else: no special foods or complicated diets are necessary. Diabetes diet for Indians should have the ratio of 60:20:20 for carbs, fats and proteins. "Per day calorie intake should be between 1,500-1,800 calories with a proportion of 60:20:20 between carbohydrates, fats and proteins, respectively." He adds that a diabetes diet should "have at least two seasonal fruits and three vegetables in a diet plan." Though dry fruits may seem like a healthy snack, it is not a good option for diabetics, as the fructose can spike your sugar level. Go for fresh fruits rather than dry fruits for diabetes control (but there are some restrictions... we'll come to it). But you can still opt for nuts as a healthy snack. Recipe for diabetes diet for Indians: - One teaspoon of methi seeds soaked overnight in 100 ml of water is very effective in controlling diabetes. - Drink tomato juice with salt and pepper every morning on an empty stomach. - Intake of 6 almonds (soaked overnight) is also helpful in keeping a check on diabetes. Whole grains, oats, channa atta, millets and other high fibre foods should be included in the meals. If one feels like consuming pasta or noodles, it should always be accompanied with vegetable/sprouts. Milk is the right combination of carbohydrates and proteins and helps control blood sugar levels. Two servings of milk in a daily diet is a good option. High fibre vegetables such as peas, beans, broccoli and spinach /leafy vegetables should be included in one's diet. Also, pulses with husk and sprouts are a healthy option and should be part of the diet. Pulses are important in the diet as their effect on blood glucose is less than that of most other carbohydrate containing foods. Vegetables rich in fibre help lowering down the blood sugar levels and thus are healthy. Good fats such as Omega-3 and monounsaturated fats (MUFA) should be consumed as they are good for the body. Natural sources for these are canola oil, flax seed oil, fatty fish and nuts. These are also low in cholesterol and are trans fat free. Fruits high in fibre such as papaya, apple, orange, pear and guava should be consumed. Mangoes, bananas, and grapes contain high sugar; therefore these fruits should be consumed lesser than the others. Small frequent meals: A large meal gives rise to higher blood sugar in one's body, therefore it is essential to take small frequent meals to prevent both higher and very low blood sugar values and keep them constant. Small in between snacks can be dhokla, fruit, high fibre cookies, butter milk, yogurt, upma/poha with vegetables etc. A person with diabetes should follow a diet which is low in carbohydrates, high in fibre and contains adequate amounts of proteins, vitamins and minerals; and avoid fatty foods and sweets. He/she should also take frequent small meals (5 meals pattern). What not to do: Artificial sweeteners can be used in cakes and sweets for diabetic people (in moderation). Have lots of fluid. Limit intake of alcohol. Should you have non-veg? In non-vegetarian diet, seafood and chicken can be taken rather than red meat as red meat contains higher amount of saturated fats. Also, patients with high cholesterol should avoid egg yolk and red meat. The diabetes diet for Indians includes carbohydrates, proteins and fats. As always, a balanced and planned diet can build and improve personal health. A controlled diabetes diet may seem like a drag and bore, but a good cook can add life to a diet. Time to call up mom and experiment with diabetes diets!

TSH 7.78 mU/L is high, and falls in the subclinical hypothyroidism. Usually no treatment is advised unless there are some specific symptoms which can be attributed to hypothyroidism. You have not mentioned height and weight, because hypothyroidism tends to increase weight. If that is happening then also treatment may have to be considered. Thanks.

My mother was diagnosed with thyroid around a couple of years back. Now again the swelling has grown and on getting the test as per the dr's advice, the results have shown the increased thryoid again. She is on medication from last 2 weeks but swelling is still there. So is there a minimum time after which the medicine's effects can be seen?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Please tell me when she was diagnosed of hypothyroidism two years back was the medication continued without any break? hypothyroidism is a condition which will need lifelong treatment with thyroxine tablets in prescribed dosage. One can not stop the drug in between. Swelling may disappear or remain even on regular treatment. Do not worry about the swelling, but continue the treatment.

Top Five Tips From The Dentist For Diabetics

BDS, Diploma in Hospital Administration, Diploma in Pharmacy

Top Five Tips From The Dentist For Diabetics
Among the many health risks of diabetes is a decline in oral health that makes patients more vulnerable to gum disease. According to dental professionals, this happens because diabetes slows the body's circulation, making the gums more susceptible to infection. The metabolic disorder also increases glucose (sugar) levels in saliva, which fuels the growth of dental plaque that attacks the teeth and gums. To protect against the disorder, follow these simple tips.

1. Visit your dentist regularly.

Because diabetics are at a much higher risk of gum disease than the average patient, you should never miss a dental appointment. In fact, you should schedule regular checkups two to four times a year. With professional cleanings and regular examinations, common mouth conditions, such as ulcers, dry mouth, and infections can be controlled. To prevent bouts of low blood sugar, it may be a good idea to eat before you see your dentist. It is also crucial that you inform him or her of any oral problems you may be having -- no matter how minor they may seem.

2. Follow a strict oral hygiene regimen.

All diabetics should and really must brush and floss daily, preferably after every meal. This will help remove the plaque that can cause gum disease, thereby lowering your risk for mouth ulcers and infections. It is recommended that you complete your oral hygiene routine at least three times a day. Because your risk of oral infection is elevated, it is important to avoid aggressive brushing that can cause cuts and sores. You may even want to use a soft-bristled brush or an electric model for a safer, more comfortable brushing experience.

3. Control your blood sugar.

As we mentioned, sugar stimulates plaque growth, which causes tooth decay and gum disease. Because diabetics have more glucose (sugar) in their blood, they also tend to have a lot more plaque on their teeth. But if you can keep your blood sugar low, you can reduce your risk of periodontal disease.

4. Don't smoke.

In a perfect world, nobody would smoke -- especially people with diabetes. The unhealthy activity causes a laundry list of serious complications, including oral infections and periodontal diseases. According to dental professionals, smoking can more than double your risk of cavities and infections.

5. Clean your dentures.

If you have diabetes and you wear false teeth, you are more prone to developing oral thrush -- a fungal infection of the mouth. Typically caused by denture irritation or wear, thrush can be prevented with regular cleaning. It is also recommended that you remove your dentures in between meals to give any irritated tissue the opportunity to heal. Your dentist might also advise you to limit your sugar intake when your mouth is bothered or raw.

Dear friend, many of newly detected diabetics have sugars in range of 500-600 mg%. So you're not the odd man out although it's not good to see such high sugar readings. Please understand. That when sugar touches pancreas, insulin is released which takes sugar into the cell for energy production but with very high sugar pancreas becomes numb and doesn't release insulin in response to food. Under such condition pancreas doesn't respond to oral medications and hence insulin usage for initial one month or so helps immensely. Please follow your doctors advice without anxiety. Insulin is the safest and best drug provided dose is adjusted judiciously and diligently. Hope this helps.

Lybrate-user, if any one has hypothyroidism, then only way to treat it is to take thyroxine hormone as a replacement. The condition occurs due to deficiency of thyroxine hormone produced by thyroid gland. This hormone is required for development and functioning of brain on day to day basis. Plus it is necessary for multiple metabolic activities in the body. If not provided (as tablets of thyroxine) then considerable problems occur including weight gain, slow heart rate, tired feeling, early fatigue, lack of interest, dry hair, dry skin and hair fall, difficulty in speech, inability to concentrate, swelling of face and lower limbs, irregular periods and excess flow, irritability, anxiety and depression. Only remedy for this is taking thyroixine tablets for life time. There are no other options. Choice is yours. Thanks.

Having diabetes makes high blood pressure and other heart and circulation problems more likely, because diabetes damages arteries and makes them targets for hardening (atherosclerosis). Atherosclerosis can cause high blood pressure, which if not treated, can lead to blood vessel damage, stroke, heart failure, heart attack, or kidney failure. You can consult me in private for detailed treatment which is available in biochemic system of medicine depending upon symptomatically.

Mr Maruti, To control diabetes mellitus and high BP one is you need to take appropriate medication, plus balanced and restricted diet that provides exact calories based on ideal body weight, sugar levels and extent of daily exercise. Plus exercise daily for at least 1 hour. For controlling BP you have to reduce salt intake and deep fried foods.
