Preetiji, Alcohol in any quantity is bad for health. It provides empty calories, does not have any nutritional value.So in my opinion it is bad in any quantity. More so if a person is over weight. But the choice is yours. Thanks.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, if hypothyroidism is in control with tsh values aroun 3 to 4 mu/l, then efforts to reduce weight do succeed. So please see that her tsh levels are maintained in that range. Then let her take a diet that gives exact calories based on her ideal body weight (54 kgs), plus she should exercise daily for at least 1 hour, brisk walking is a good option. Thanks.

I am diabetic 26 years old. Hba1c 7.5 .how long I will use metformin ?will I use it throughout my life?

MBBS, PG Diploma In Emergency Trauma Care, Fellowship in Diabetes

The treatment of diabetes is not that simple. There are many classes of diabetic drugs. It depends on extent of diabetes and complications to decide medicine for the diabetic person. Dosages are also decided upon depending on your acute and chronic sugar levels, fasting sugar levels, post prandial sugar levels, urine sugar levels, urine microalbumin levels, urea and creatinine levels. So, a complete diabetic profile needs to be done to reach for the best drugs and proper dosages. Here is the list of tests, please get them done and follow up with me. I will do the best and give you a proper treatment. 1. Hba1c. 2. Sugar - fasting and pp. 3. Urine - routine and microscopy. 4. Urine microalbumin. 5. Urea and creatinine. 6. Lipid profile. Follow up with the reports. I will set up a wonderful treatment plan to control your sugar levels. Additionally I will also make a customised dietary plan for you to take care of your sugar levels naturally.

I am suffering from sugar and I really want to be diabetes free. What to do to control it with no time to waste?

LCPS, BAM&S
General Physician, Pune
Real key to control your diabetes is combination of diet, exercise and drugs. Daily waking for 40 to 60 min. Avoiding sweet, white rice, potatoes and fried food, and regular checking of hba1c every 6 months is essential. Your diabetologist will change drugs and dosage frequently to control sugar. Follow his advise. In addition you can take ayurvedic medicines also.

Hello doctor! My brother is Diabetic patient, He loss is weight day by day, Because of this he mentally disturbed, Could not eat properly, Kindly give advice and how to gain body weight for diabetic type 2 Thanks in advance Regards.

Increase the calories in your diet while watching your carbohydrate intake. Gaining weight is simply a matter of eating more calories than you burn, but having diabetes complicates the equation because it's not safe for diabetics to eat whatever foods they want. Recommends limiting sweets like candy and chocolate, as they can spike your blood sugar levels too quickly, and instead of eating foods with refined carbohydrates like white rice, white bread and pasta, Eat more whole grains like whole wheat bread, proteins like chicken and fats like olive oil. Continue to check your blood sugar levels as often as your doctor or dietitian recommends.

Docs I want to know that as ramzan has started so it would be ok if I take thyroid tablet at night or have to take one hour early before taking morning food? Thank you.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Ideal recommendation is to take thyroid medicine either one hour before Iftar (meal taken after sunset) or one hour before Sehur (meal taken before dawn); however, most of the patients find it difficult to wait before Iftar or to wake up that early before Sehur and therefore, either miss the dose or take it with the meal. This problem can be easily managed, if medicine is taken at bedtime, which too has an almost identical lowering effect (if not better) on TSH. However, the patient should not take any food for at least 2 hours before bedtime.

Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr Emaan, Appropriate drugs, diet restriction and exercise are the things that help in controlling blood sugar. Plus you have to avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads, permitted fruits (about 100 g a day). Your diet should give exact calories based on ideal body weight (67 kgs), extent of daily exercise and blood sugar levels. If you want any specific suggestions please come in a private conversation, where I will be able to do that.

Do not self medicate. You are already taking powerful painkillers. Let the doctor assess you and advise accordingly before it becomes a serious issue.

I am 45 years old and for the past 14 years I am consuming Eltroxin to control my hypothyroidism. The problem is I am not able to loose weight although the thyroid results are normal. I am regularly going to the gym and exercising and also following the diet given by the nutritionist What should I do to reduce weight?

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
For a hypothyroid condition there is no specific or special food. And it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the thyroid levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar if having insulin resistance. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into lowered metabolism. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline. But don't give up. A good diet and exercise will help keep metabolism going.

My mother suffers from diabetes from 16 years it is not in control. What we have to do?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr Abhishek, If diabetes is not in control . means either the treatment is inadequate or diet and exercise are not enough. Then we have to give a relook at the present drug treatment and dietary intake as well as exercise. A person with diabetes has to adapt a modified lifestyle - meaning taking a restricted diet that gives exact amount of calories based on Ideal Body Weight, blood sugar levels and extent of physical activity. Should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, red meat and egg yolk. Consume more green leafy vegetables, salads, permitted fruits (100 g a day). Exercise daily for 1 hour, best is to do brisk walking. Do a regular blood sugar check up and HbA1c% once in 3 to 6 months.

What to Do if Diabetes Runs in Your Family Tree

What to Do if Diabetes Runs in Your Family Tree

Diabetes is so common that it has become a part of our daily life. Almost every 7th person on this earth is affected with this dreaded disease. Therefore, it is not uncommon to find someone in our family affected with Diabetes. Let us see what can we do to keep our affected dear ones healthy, free from complications and lead a productive life, along with preventing others in the family from becoming Diabetic.

Changes Required in Family:

  • Diet: Diabetes is basically a lifestyle disease. Changes in our daily routine can help to modify the disease. Remember the so called diabetic diet is not something very special but a very healthy combination of foods. If we incorporate such kind of diet in our daily routine we can always keep our dear ones healthy and can prevent ourselves from becoming diabetic. So ultimately it benefits both. Recent data shows that if one of the spouse is diabetic it increases chances of developing Diabetes in the other partner. This reflects on the bad lifestyle habit of the whole family.
  • Diabetes and family Exercise: Second important aspect required is regular exercise and believe me it's just not possible for a common person to go for exercise with the rest of family sitting at home. It requires a combined effort and hence if one person is diabetic it is always good to change your family lifestyle and start exercising as a whole family.
  • How to Prevent Diabetes in other Family Members: If one person in the family is diabetic there are always more chances of developing Diabetes in other members of the family. It involves preventing obesity by incorporating good dietary habits, regular exercising.

Anyone in family with a history of Diabetes should get there blood glucose checked yearly after the age of 40 and if one has a hectic lifestyle then they should opt for the tests after the age of 30. These involve testing your blood glucose fasting as well as postprandial and also getting your HbA1c checked. If you find any report abnormal, consult your Endocrinologist.
