Sugars keep fluctuating every second of your life. It's a very complex interplay of hormones,stress level,activity medication and the food intake. So,though your sugars may seem to be under control,slow and gradual changes do occur at the cellular level. So,it is advisable to get the check up done at regular intervals

Husband and wife together must adopt better eating and exercise habits and support each other so that the problems do not become worse. It has been seen in households where excessive food / junk food is consumed.. everyone in the house, spouses.. children.. ultimately suffers from weight related lifestyle diseases like Hypertension, Diabetes, Cholesterol, Heart Diseases, Joint Pains, Obesity etc... While Diabetes etc is not transmitted through Sex... but definitely these diseases are transmitted through Food Habits. It is recommended that as couple you can take diet counselling to ensure that such problems are naturally controlled.

Hi, am 31 years old. I recently had a general health check up. All results were normal except my sugar cholesterol levels. Fasting sugar was 103 and post meal sugar was 126. I remember I had taken too much sugary beverages around 9 hours before the test. Could that have an effect on the examination? And generally am I diabetic? On the other hand, my LDL cholesterol level was 124. Please advice what to do to reduce my cholesterol and sugar levels. Am really stressed!

Diabetic people will have fungal infection over their fore skin and knob. After sex the skin gets cracked. For this the treatment is 1. Strict control of sugar. 2. Antifungal tablets and cream for you and your wife also. 3. If it severe you may have to set a minor operation called circumcision.

How You Can Prevent Yourself from Factor that Cause Diabetes

How You Can Prevent Yourself from Factor that Cause Diabetes

The pervasiveness of such a serious disorder can be attributed to its growing significance. In the past few decades there has been extensive research in the field of medical science to analyze and control the causes and symptoms of diabetes. This health condition, if unchecked, can lead one to life threatening disorder.

What is Diabetes?

Diabetes refers to a medical condition where a human body fails to produce the required amount of insulin. Insulin is the hormone that carries glucose to your cells. Insulin accelerates a chemical process that signals cells to receive glucose from the blood. Blood derives glucose by breaking down the food you eat; exercise is considered as an inevitable part of daily life as it helps in deriving energy from food by turning it into glucose and a host of other nutrients. A lack of insulin production leads to an accumulation of sugar in your bloodstream thus making you diabetic. Patients of diabetes suffer from upsetting symptoms. In many cases diabetes is so acute that insulin needs to be injected into a patient's body on a regular basis. Timely diagnosis and reliable medical guidance is important for patients of diabetes.

Prevent yourself from these causes: 

  1. Genetics could lead to diabetes. If there has been a family history you should be more cautious.
  2. The kind of food you eat has a severe impact on your health. Irregular food habits, frequent consumption of junk food increases the chance of insulin resistance and diabetes. Hence, medical practitioners advice healthy eating habits as a preventive health measure.
  3. Children these days tend to become couch potatoes as they spend a lot of time watching television. Lack of exercise and subsequent obesity could also trigger diabetes in children and adults.

You may experience the following symptoms

  1. Low insulin production or complete lack of insulin can result in drastic weight loss.
  2. You can feel exhausted from moderate exertion.
  3. You may face vision disorders. Poor eyesight and blurry vision are some of the common symptoms.
  4. Patients suffering from diabetes have the urge to urinate frequently.
  5. Patients suffering from diabetes experience excessive thirst
  6. Sometimes, diabetes patients excessively loose weight
  7. Small wounds and cuts in diabetes patients take more time to heal

She want to know about thyroid and fertility.
Low levels of thyroid hormone can interfere with the release of an egg from your ovary (ovulation), which impairs fertility. In addition, some of the underlying causes of hypothyroidism — such as certain autoimmune or pituitary disorders — may impair fertility.

I want to lose weight. I have thyroid too. What are the foods to be avoid for hypothyroid? What foods are to be taken for hypothyroid?

I want to lose weight. I have thyroid too. What are the foods to be avoid for hypothyroid? What foods are to be taken...
Hye, Thanks for the query.     For a hypothyroid condition there is no specific or special food. And it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the thyroid levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar if having insulin resistance. You just have to avoid raw, unprocessed soya, raw peanuts and raw cabbage. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into lowered metabolism. Sleep well.            It's all a matter of discipline.
