Five Tips to Help You Prevent Diabetes

MBBS, MD - General Medicine, DM

Five Tips to Help You Prevent Diabetes

Diabetes refers to a medical condition where the glucose level in your blood increases. It usually happens if there is an excess amount of glucose in your body and your body is unable to utilize it efficiently. In this condition your pancreas either stops producing insulin or fails to produce the requisite amount and hence prevents glucose from entering the cells of your body.

This in turn affects your blood glucose level. Millions of people around the globe are affected by diabetes irrespective of their gender or age. For most people diabetes is generally a lifelong medical condition and can affect your health seriously if it gets severe.

There are many stages and types of diabetes, such as Type 1 diabetes, Type 2 diabetes, Gestational diabetes, Pre-diabetes, Diabetes Mellitus and Diabetes Insipidus. Not all diabetes can be prevented but some of the above mentioned ones can be prevented with proper care. Below mentioned are eight tips to prevent diabetes

1. Eating the right portion: The primary key for preventing diabetes is choosing the right amount of food. Eating the right portions can help you to stay away from diabetes. Consider seeking advice from a nutritionist or dietician for knowing the exact portion size you should eat according to your age.

2. Exercise on a regular basis: Exercising regularly for at least half an hour a day can help you to prevent diabetes. You may consider walking or running exercises.

3. Choose the right food: Opt for whole grains as this can help you to maintain your blood sugar level and keep diabetes at bay. Also, try and avoid red meat as it contains high levels of iron which can affect insulin production and increase your chances of developing diabetes.

4. Get rid of obesity: If your BMI is more than thirty then you are suffering from obesity. Obesity increases your chances of developing diabetes. So in order to prevent diabetes you should work at maintaining a balanced weight.

5. Avoid carbonated drinks: Carbonated drinks contain high levels of sugar. This can increase your chances of developing diabetes. So you should try and avoid drinks like colas.
Following the above mentioned tips can help you to avert diabetes.

Sometimes because of stress or many other lifestyle factors or hormonal changes, ovulation does not occur for one month and menses gets delayed. As you said you used to have regular cycles, that means you are regularly having ovulation. No need to panic and no need of any tests as of now. Wait for another 6 month or so, and if you do not get pregnant by that time then it needs to be investigated. In the mean time reduce your weight by jogging or brisk walk.

As your age is just 26 and you have been trying for conception for past 6 months only, I would suggest that instead of visiting a doctor's clinic, you shud visit a a hill station etc. Just have a good time with your hubby and forget about ovulation etc. Fertile period is approx 10 days after your periods and maximum chances of conception are during the week, following your 10th day of cycle. If even after another 6 months of unprotected intercourse, you r unable to concieve then visit a gynaec also try to reduce some weight, if you are able to reduce 10 kgs of weight, your ovulation will normalise on its own. Go for a morning walk, jogging etc.

Hello, After an unwanted 72, menses arrive only after 7-10 days after pill intake, so you need to wait. And if they don't then rule out pregnancy.

I suggest you consult a urologist. Stones of such size may need surgery which is usually safe in pregnancy. Also increase the amount of water you take daily to 3 litres a day. In case you are well and have no symptoms the stone can be simply monitored and treatment deffered on the discrition of the urologist.

I am 32 years old and I had a miscarriage in April, 2016. I have 31 days cycle and now we are TTC and tried every alternate day from CD10 to CD21. I did a pregnancy test after 2 days of my missed periods, but it turned out to be negative. My periods are normal and I do not have any PMS. Is there any chance that I am pregnant? If so when I can test? I was told to try after 3-6 months of the miscarriage. We could not try because of other problems. Is there any chance of infertility or other problem? Please answer.

More suckling gives more production of milk. Keep baby on breast till either baby is satisfied or breast is emptied. In case breast becomes empty and baby is still hungry, give him top feed which to be kept ready. Give exclusive breast milk till 6 months of age.

Hi, Get an ultrasound (pelvis) done to rule out any cause of irregular menses. Reduced physical activity can also lead to skipped periods. You can increase you daily physical activity, get indulge into simple cardio exercises like brisk walk, jogging, running, skipping a rope, jumping, cycling, swimming, etc. Swimming is a kind of exercise which exercise every part of the body. Apart from this, you can also think of opting for other exercises like yoga, but do it under the guidance of a qualified person only. Yoga for irregular menses: 1.Trikonasana: -Stand on the ground with your legs apart (ideally shoulder-width). Begin turning your right leg at a right angle to your body. -Gently begin bending sideways until your palms touch the ground. -Now, raise the left hand and look at the tips of your left hand’s fingers. -Hold the pose for around 3-6 minutes. -Return to the starting point. -Repeat the asana. 2. Vajrasana: -Sit on the floor with your legs folded under your body. -Ensure that you keep your spine straight. -Close your eyes and place your right palm on your right knee and do the same for the left palm. -Inhale deeply and think about the healthy air you breathe in. -Count to 10 and release the inhaled air. Imagine the disorder leaving along with the carbon dioxide. -Repeat the exercise for around 10 minutes and rest. 3. Tadasana: -Stand on the ground with your feet slightly apart. -Your heels should be flat on the floor. -Keep your hands by the body’s side. -Gaze forward. -Hold this position for 2-5 minutes. -Rest. 4. Adho Mukhasvanasana: -Go down on all fours. To perform this asana, sit on your fours. -Begin raising your pelvis until your hands and legs straighten. -Ensure that your knees and elbows aren’t bent. -Hold the pose for 10-15 seconds. -Gently go down to the starting position. -Repeat.

Surgery remains as the only option if hymen was surely torn during the first act of intercourse. In a few it might be intact due to its elasticity. So evaluation should be done before deciding.
