pl. tell us report of thyroid. you can use hair oil minoxidil for hair growth. You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help,

Can my dad eat mango because he loves mango a lot. he have diabetes? Please advise.
If your dad is having diabetes, then mangoes are out of question. Plus the details given by you also show that he is over weight. Excess weight make sugar control more difficult. Hence he has to follow diet restrictions more meticulously. Very occasionally a single slice of mango may be had nothing more.

Hi lybrate user firstly, start doing surya namaskar in morning and start eating triphla chooran (natural medicine) in morning empty stomach with luke warm water. Start a fruit dieting every alternative day, means you have to eat fruits every alternative days & normal fruit every other alternative days. Avoid late night dinners and try to eat nothing after sunset. Sit in vajrasana after every meal you eat for 10 minutes. Walk atleast 30 min in morning.

I have a question that a patient with diabetes having stroke what is the connection between diabetes n stroke?
Our bodies need a hormone called insulin to turn sugar (from our food) into energy. If you have type 1 diabetes, your body does not produce insulin. If you have type 2 diabetes, your body does not make enough insulin. This means your body has difficulty absorbing the sugars from food. If diabetes is left untreated or uncontrolled it increases the risk of vascular disease (disease of the blood vessels). This is when your artery walls become hard and narrow. This increases the risk of stroke, particularly ischaemic stroke. People with diabetes are also more likely to have high blood pressure. This can also increase your risk of further strokes. If you have diabetes it is important to maintain healthy blood sugar levels to reduce your risk of having a stroke or second stroke.

I am 60 yrs. Old. I am a diabetic as per sugar level in my blood report. What immediate precautions I should take to keep my blood sugar under control? is there any other reason which may make blood sugar high in a person having healthy diet.

General Physician,
I am 60 yrs. Old. I am a diabetic as per sugar level in my blood report. What immediate precautions I should take to ...
YOur pancreas is getting weaker which is the cause of sugar. Can you send me your FBS, 2Hr PPBS & HbA1C to me privatelyDiabetes affects all organs in the body ? Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient and doctor should be n constant touch for regular follow up and advice. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose ? SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS),& HbA1C ( inform me ) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I have gone through the details, I understand your concern. Please answer following few questions: Do your parents or any one in the family have diabetes? Have you been loosing weight over last few weeks or months? Is there excess thirst, excess urination and hunger as well as general weakness during last few weeks or months? The blood glucose reduction that you have reported (from 375 mg to 180 mg) has occurred on its own or after taking any medication? What is the present treatment with details of drugs and dosage? It is necessary to know all these details, before one can look at how to control your blood glucose rise. Another important aspect is that if DIABETES is CONFIRMED then treatment has to go on for Life Time. There is no Cure. If you do not take necessary care, then there can be very severe long term consequences related to every single system in the body. So my suggestion is please initiate appropriate treatment with modern anti diabetic drugs and continue the same. Strict blood glucose control is absolutely essential. Fasting should be <100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. It will be good if you provide all the details and come in a private conversation then I will be able to guide and help treat your condition effectively. Thanks.

The levels mentioned are not high, but they are showing you have impaired glucose tolerance (igt) which is a prediabetic condition. When sugar levels cross above 126 mg fasting and 200mg after food, then it is labeled as diabetes. So you can continue whatever precautions that are being taken and remain free from diabetes.

Hye. Thankyou for your query. Weight gain is dependent on many factors like genetics, diet and exercise routine. There is no short cut to gain weight fast. A weight gain supplement cannot just help you to gain muscle and add calories to your body. In order for your body to gain calories, it is important to eat much food. Most supplements are also added with appetizers that may help boost your craving for foods. With the aid of the appetite boosters, your body will want to eat more foods and accumulate more fats. This is why taking supplementation in isolation does not really work. Whatever you have gained, you could have managed with a well planned diet as well. For any supplement to even help, you need to have a calorie, protein, nutrient dense diet first. Just taking supplement thrice a day a pill will not help because it's just fulfilling your basic needs. Moreover, the moment you discontinue the supplement you will lose all the weight. It must be understood that muscles will not grow big if you will not work on it. It is important to engage oneself into exercises which are focused on muscle growth along with a healthy diet. With lots and lots of supplements for gaining weight that are in the market, it is better for you to work on your diet and exercise routine first rather than depending on the weight gain supplements' placebo promises. Working out your muscles can greatly help in growing your body and gain weight in the process. Let the supplement work as an additional nutrition for your body, not the only nutrition. That's why they are called supplements.

lybrate-user, Looking at your weight and height, your BMI is 22.98 kgs/M2, which absolutely fine. However, if belly fat is there, that can be reduced by aerobic exercise and abdominal exercise and also by swimming. There is no mention about blood glucose levels or HbA1c%, so I have no idea about how well is diabetes controlled. As regards treatment of RA affecting the diabetes, it depends on what drugs are being given. Thanks.
