I am diabetic for last 9 years I am on victoza1.2 with 4 mg glimipride & 1000mg metformin twice daily. Still my pp remains around 200, what to do ?

MD
General Physician, Delhi
Hi , Along with medication ,try dietary , exercise option as well. 1. Consume a low-calorie diet (often less than 1,400-1,800 calories a day). Most people cannot adhere to this kind of low-calorie diet. 2. Consume a Mediterranean diet, with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, fish and beans as protein sources, and omega-3 and monounsaturated fats (olive oil), while avoiding saturated fats, refined carbohydrates, cholesterol-laden foods, excess omega-6 fats, and most animal products. An increasing percentage of health-conscious Americans are adopting this kind of diet 3. Avoid sugary fruit juices (almost all fruit juices contain too many sugars) and beverages spiked with fructose,80-84 sucrose,85-89 and/or high-fructose corn syrup.Consume a low-glycemic index and low-glycemic load diet. Brisk walks for 20-30 mins at lest 5 times a week

The diet that you take should provide exact amount of calories based on ideal body weight and extent of daily exercise being done. You should avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. As regards exercise any exercise that you enjoy is good enough.

It is important to evaluate you clinically for the reason for such a pain. You have not mentioned the medicines you are taking. It could be neuropathy or side effect of metformin. I suggest to consult a good diabetologist for correct advise.

Hello, Gaining weight is a slow process which requires patience and dedication! It not only depends upon the amount of food you consume daily, but also about eating Sensibly, depends upon your genes, your body's proper metabolism, assimilation and absorption, the levels of stress/ tension in your life, and any underlying medical condition you have! The food what and how you eat, makes the difference! For increasing your weight, concentrate on the below points (if you don’t have any medical condition) which helps in gaining weight in a right way without harming your body. - Consume more healthy fats. Foods containing healthy fats are full of nutrients and also high in calories, making them a great option for weight gain. Foods containing plant fats should be your first option - this includes items such as nuts, seeds, peanut butter, avocados and olive oil. Foods containing healthy animals fats include lean meats and full fat dairy products - although if you have high cholesterol, you should probably stick to low-fat options. -Eat more protein. Good sources of protein include lean meat, fish and poultry, in addition to eggs, whole grains, dairy products and legumes. -Drink more calories. Try drinking a large glass of orange juice in the mornings (along with your normal breakfast). Drink a glass or two of full-cream milk throughout the day. -Have 6 small and frequent meals in a day. -Gain muscle mass. It's a good idea to continue to exercise while you attempt to gain weight the healthy way. Strength training includes working with weights and performing exercises such as squats, deadlifts, bench presses, bicep curls, crunches, chin-ups and leg curls. Just keep in mind that the more you exercise, the more calories you will need to consume to replace those you lost while working out. -Quit smoking. As it suppresses the appetite. -Stay healthy. The most important thing through the entire weight gain process is to stay healthy - eating a balanced diet and continuing to exercise throughout. -Take enough of rest and sleep for rejuvenation of the cells and tissues. -Think Positive which will help you in achieving your target of gaining weight. -Avoid taking unnecessary stress/ tension. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Alfaalfa Tonic and Five Phos. Both thrice daily ½ an hour before meals for 3 months. Revert.

1. I often get severe back pain. Please advice, what could be the reason?
2. What are the symptoms of Thyroid. Pls help?
1. For back pain: exercise regularly including stretching, yoga and exercises by lying on back. Do not sit at one place for longer time, avoid bending and lifting heavy weight. Apply orthomove oil over back twice daily. You may need internal medication. Consult for that. 2. Two types of thyroid changes hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism. In hypothyroid, there is weight gain, laziness, lethargy, hair fall, irregular menses in females, chilliness etc. In hyperthyroid there is profuse perspiration, feeling hot all the time, weight loss, heavy bleeding, restlessness etc.

Hello, your sugar level are under control as. Of now but you need to check hba1c every 3 months and if any symptoms of diabetes like increased urine, increased appetite, weight loss, increased thirst etc. In between, check fbs-pp2bs levels that time. Regarding bp, it is also under control with medicine so continue it and measure bp every month regularly. And I would like to know your baseline tests like creatinine, urine albumin, lipid profile. & ecg, 2d echo.

Have a Uric acid count of 9.5. What diet and medicines do I need? Especially what food to avoid. Is cheese, and milk to be avoided too?

General Physician,
Have a Uric acid count of 9.5. What diet and medicines do I need? Especially what food to avoid. Is cheese, and milk ...
To reduce the uric acid levels in blood, you may need to limit intake of alcohol, sugary foods and reduce purine rich foods like meat, poultry, seafood and pulses. Vegetables such as cauliflower, asparagus, spinach, peas and mushroom also contain a lot of purines. Add purine-rich foods—such as seafood and red meat—to the list and it can seem hard to find something you can eat.
