Madam Naste! Pl give a clarification how sugar harm CABG patients in forming bad cholesterol instead of giving energy to body as glucose? How coconut water benefit to CABG patients.

MBBS, CCEBDM
Diabetologist, Bangalore
Namastey Excess blood sugar in the body usually gets stored in the liver for later use, but when it goes beyond the normal range it gets converted to cholesterol which is bad for a CABG patient. coconut water has good amount of nutrients especially potassium which helps in controlling blood.pressure. However it can also increase blood.sugars so keep a watch on it. If patient also has kidney problems you need to watch the potassium levels.

Dont be bother of report of thyroid. But healthy life style, lightness in body n mind, symptom free life is better thing.

You can get information about panchkarma on net easily.

Mr. Lybrate-user, to control diabetes following steps need to be taken: 1) take appropriate drugs as prescribed by the doctor, without fail or missing a dose. 2) take a balanced but restricted diet, that should provide exact calories based on ideal body weight, extent of daily exercise and blood sugar levels. 3) daily regular exercise of at least 1 hour, brisk waliking is a good option. 4) consume great deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day) 5) avoid sweets, sweetened aerated drinks, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, fructose corn syrup containing products and highly processed foods. 6) you should strive to maintain fasting level around 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <6.8. 7) refrain from alcohol and smoking. All these are the things referred as modified lifestyle. With regards.

I am an old man of 69 years. I have high B.P for 20 years but am keeping it under control, using right medicines as advised by the doctor. I also have been diabetic for 6 years and keeping it well with in limits. I have a great urge for sex right from my adolescence and I used to have excellent sexual potency that very few can have. But, unfortunately due to having been divorced, I haven't had sex with any woman for nearly 11 years. Though I burn with a great desire to have sex, I am afraid, I may not be so active as I was earlier due to my fear that my penis is flaccid and that there is no proper erection, when the desire for sex rises in me (I get tempted, even looking at any young and sexy woman, at this age too). I would like to know if there are any medicines or surgeries that can make my penis strong and stiff when aroused and whether I can get back my original potency at this age. Can I also have the sustaining power of retaining the erection for long ,as I used to have earlier? The bottom line is that I am going to marry an orphan, younger to me by 35 years. I don't want to be a failure and have my new wife find ways to betray me due to lack of sexual satisfaction from me. Please advise me.

My father crossed 55 years daily he would like to have have whisky He's having diabetics also From last 4 months he's getting fever randomly and headache also I would like to consult a doctor about his health situation Whom should I consult.

General Physician,
Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult 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 diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness 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 with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance... if you keep in touch personally. You can consult me with all details here by Lybrate site

I have bought a gluco meter as my parents are the patient of diabetes. I have got 10 lanset free with it whether there are 25 test strips. My query is. Can I use one lancet for multiple time. If yes then how should I clean it after using one time.

MBBS, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Mumbai
Practically yes you can use lancet multiple times of you are using for same person considering usage is on same day or within couple of days. Repeated usage of same lancet for same person increases risk of infection. Lancet need to be changed each time if you are using for multiple patients.

Consuming tobacco in any form will raise blood sugar levels? , I am a Diabetic eating chain khane i.e. tobacco in fine form covered with a very thin layer of paper. And also taking tablets for sugar and eating only pulka day by day increasing my blood sugar and urine sugar levels are increasing , will it be the case of increasing levels of my blood sugar? Pls. Clarify me Doctor thanks and regards

Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS

Tobacco is an unhealthy habit & addiction. It causes the blood vessels to constrict. Also in diabetics, the blood has an increased tendency to clot as the blood is slightly thicker due to increase in the concentration of clotting factors. So a diabetic person with a tobacco habit is at an increased risk to develop clots in heart vessels or brain vessels causing either a heart attack or a stroke or gangrene if the peripheral vessels develop a clot & are blocked. hence quit your tobacco as early as possible.

Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. 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,

Dear doctor, I am trying to lose weight for that I have cut down the sugar consumptions. Instead I wish to take raw natural sugar for drinking tea and coffee? Can I go for it? Or is it the same like consuming the sugar? Pls make me clear doctor. Thank yu.

Hi, if you wanna lose weight you must take care of your diet & regimen. Its better to avoid raw natural sugar also. Do not bunk your breakfast. Eat light diet at night. Drink plenty of water. Do pranayama, surya namaskara, bhujngasana in morning hours. Avoid junk food, coke items, deep fried, red meat.

Hello it appears the insulin dose is not enough. Plus you have to check hba1c and lipid profile as well as creatinine. Then increase insulin dosage every 2 days by 2 units. Simultaneously observe sugar levels regularly. This will also help you to have better control. Also exercise regularly 1 hr a day.
