Hello, Thanks for the query. There are some reports which claim that taking green tea reduces blood glucose levels. However, there is no well established clinical evidence on this. Thanks.

I am 26 years old female I have an thyroid. What should I do to get out of an thyroid and I am to fat. What should I eat or what I do to get relief from thyroid?

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

Hello, Specialised ayurvedic medicine are there 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. Tell your age, height, weight and other symptoms if any. This information is vital so as to arrive at perfect prescription.

Diabetic patient should avoid sweat fruits like banana, grapes,mangoe, cheeku etc. Jamun,kiwi, guawa,papaya, kakdi are allowed. Fruits can increase serum Potassium level hence they should be restricted in diabetic patients whos kidneys are affected.

On 8 of Feb I had blood test of random s/p glucose and the result is 124 I wanted to know what is result.

On 8 of Feb I had blood test of random s/p glucose and the result is 124 I wanted to know what is result.
Random blood glucose testing has no value in diagnosing or ruling out diabetes. Its a waste of money and time. A fasting blood glucose in the morning (after 8-10 hours overnight fast) <100 mg/dl rules out diabetes 100-125 mg/dl is prediabetes and >125 mg/dl is diabetes. A 2 hours after a heavy meal blood glucose <140 mg/dl rules out diabetes, 140-199 mg/dl is prediabetes and >199 mg/dl is diabetes.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes can only be treated by either oral anti-diabetic drugs or insulin injections or both. Plus diet restriction and regular exercise. Unfortunately there are no other drugs in any branch of medicine which control blood sugar. So my suggestion is to continue present treatment. I have seen patients in my practice who stopped modern medicine and started other therapies and have come back with exceptionally high blood sugar. Now the choice is yours.
