Dear lybrate-user, fatty liver is almost an integral part of type 2 diabetes. Excess sugar in diabetes gets converted into triglycerides and cholesterol which get deposited in liver and hence the fatty liver. Best treatment for fatty liver in diabetes is weight loss and good sugar control. Please don't give up. Visit a diabetologist near to you and work hard to get sugars under control. All will be better.

Hello doctor I am suffering from thyroid I am using medicines every day so is their any chance to avoid this problem for ever.

Mr. lybrate-user, If you have hypothyroidism, and taking Thyroxine tablets, then that is the only option. TSH level has to be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L to be free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism. This is the only treatment and to b taken for life time. Thanks.

You can give her 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.

from given data it is clear that both diabetes and high bp are not in control. Further you are overweight with a bmi of 27.77kg/m2. Therefore, we need to look at your over all treatment and if possible upgrade it. Please let me know how much time you spend on exercise daily and type of diet you have. It would be better if you come in a private conversation, so that I can give proper advise.

Mr. Lybrate-user s r k, to suggest specific diet I need to know some more details like fasting and pp sugar levels, hba1c%, dietary pattern, extent of daily exercise and drugs with dosage. Plus your tsh value (15.3 milli units/ml) is also high, this needs to be brought down to around 3 to 4 milli units / ml when you are on treatment for hypothyroid. As a rule a person with diabetes should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Also should refrain from alcohol and smoking. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits about 100 g a day. Total calories to be taken should match your body weight, exercise level and sugar levels. Plus you should take 4 to 5 meals in a day, with each being smaller in quantity so that there is no excess glucose rise.

What is the sugar and broken haddi I want is the very useful solution please help.
Mr. Lybrate-user, you are talking about two totally different conditions. I will give details about one of them diabetes mellitus. This is a disorder occurring due to either deficiency of insulin or resistance to its action or both, particularly in t2 diabetes. In t1 there absolutely no insulin secretion. Diabetes has to be treated by appropriate oral anti diabetes drugs or insulin injections. At times both may be required for better control. Along with this strict diet control and regular exercise for more than 1 hour is also important.

Hello. AMH blood levels are thought to reflect the size of the remaining egg supply - or "ovarian reserve". It has nothing to do with the ovulation in this cycle and no injections can increase the AMH level. Thanks

Not just indians, but all nationalities use oil in their daily lives. Only the type varies. As far as indian cooking is concerned, any of the traditionally used oils, in moderation are ok. It depends on what region you are from, your tastes, style of cooking, availability & cost. Eg: here is kerala, we use quite a lot of coconut oil in our cooking, but to someone from north india, it wouldn't sound very appealing as they mostly use it for hair care! but avoid vanaspathi.

I am 74 years old and suffering from diabets since 10 years and it type -2. I am using galvas met 2 tablets a day and one tablet of glycipage 500 mg. As galvas met is costly will you kindly suggest any other alternative tablet to keep my blood sugar level in normal sir? you may also suggest homeopathic /ayurvda medicines also. Now after taking above tablets my blood sugar level in fasting is 130. Please advice.

MD - Consultant Physician

You can use other medicine like guconorm g2. But you will have to check blood sugar regularly for sometime after starting this medicine to make sure it is lowering down sugar. It is comparatively cheap medicine than galvas met.

Hello your sugar levels seem to be normal particularly the pp level. Are you taking any treatment for this condition? if you are on treatment then eating mango on regular basis is out of question. You may eat one piece or so.
