It is very essential to bring hypothyroidism in strict control, if efforts to reduce weight are to be successful. For that tsh levels should be between 3 to 4 milli units /l. So check this, if level is highr then increase the dose of thyroxine to bring tsh down to 3 to 4 milli units/l. Then follow a properly balanced diet and an exercise schedule, thjat will help in controlling weight. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Diabetes affects blood supply to penile muscles causing erectile dysfunction. Hence, strict blood glucose control is very essential. Whether the remedy mentioned is useful or no, I have no idea. But strict glucose control is a must. Thanks.

I am 35 years old. My cholesterol and suger level is high. what can i do?

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
I am 35 years old. My cholesterol and suger level is high. what can i do?
Hello dear High cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines . avoid sweet meal.tea,coffee.

How can remove diabetes and which type of eat food in diabetes please I req because my dad also in diabetes.
You cannot remove diabetes. You can just control it with medicines and lifestyle modifications. Do daily exercise and eat fresh home-made food which is not deep-fried or oily to keep good health. Also, include ample amounts of fruits and vegetables in your diet and restrict sweets to once a week.

I am a diabetic patient. Which fruit is useful for me?

Certified Diabetes Educator , Sports Nutritionist, Registered Clinical Dietician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
Dear , contrary to d old belief n myth that diabetic cannot eat certain fruits. I would say a diabetic can eat all seasonal fruits. Ie even mangoes when in season. D trick however is that you need to eat in them in specific quantities, at specific timings n in d whole fruit form only. Never in d form of a fruit juice or milkshake. Maintain a gap of 2 hrs between consumption of fruit n meal.

Dear, you are suffering from 7-8 years, so, fasting, pp, and even hba1c is also must to know how much is under control. Your bmi is about 27.1. So reduce your weight to 74 kg. By exercise particularly aerobic and if possible by resistant exercise also. Have a good diet of low fat, low carbs. You are also advised for other blood reports, like s. Creatinine, sgpt, lipid profile, urine microalbumin, and urine routine. Then contact me. Try best to avoid complication.
