First thing is her sugar levels should be well controlled, so she has to take appropriate medicines regularly, if possible she should exercise at least 30 to 45 minutes a day. Follow all dietary restrictions as advised. For other problem of the mass in the abdomen (earlier removal and present one) only a surgeon can advise, hence please do consult one.

Foods That You Should Avoid if You Are Diabetic

Foods That You Should Avoid if You Are Diabetic

Food and diabetes do not go hand in hand. If you are a foodie and if you are diabetic, then you have tough luck. When afflicted with diabetes, the most basic medicine to control it is your diet. There are certain foods, which will help you bring diabetes in control and certain foods, which you have to avoid if you don't want the sugar level to rise beyond necessary. It is extremely important to keep a check on what you eat when you are afflicted with the diabetic condition.

Here are a few items which you should avoid in case you are diabetic:

  1. Fruit beverages: You might think that if the beverages are fruit based, then they are safe to be had; incorrect. Fruit beverages contain a lot of hidden added sugar. They are also high in calories, which again are harmful. The best way to judge a fruit beverage is by reading labels on the bottles. You will get your information there and it will be easier for you to judge which beverage you might have.
  2. French fries: French fries may be extremely tasty, but they are also extremely bad for your health, especially if you are diabetic. They are full of saturated fat, sodium, calories and too much of carbohydrates. Even though most of the restaurants claim that the fries are trans fat free, it still isn't healthy for you at all.
  3. Fried chicken: Fried chicken is another food item you can devour, but even this is very harmful. Although chicken is a good source of protein, frying it adds an unhealthy amount of carbohydrates, calories, fats and sodium. These added components make this healthy source of protein extremely unhealthy.
  4. Hamburgers: Hamburgers are full of saturated fat, which leads to a high level of cholesterol. It contains a huge amount of cheese, which supplies your body with a huge amount of calories. Although you do need 7% of saturated fats, hamburgers usually give you much more than the required amount.
  5. Milk shakes: Milk shakes are loaded with sugars and calories and they might also have hidden trans-fat. Not only does it increase your sugar level, it also makes your heart suffer.

lybrate-user. Thanks for the query. TSH 4.2 mU/L is with in the normal range. So if this is the first time tested value then there is no need for any treatment. Levothyroxine is usually prescribed when TSH is over 10 mU/l. Even for values between 6 to 9.9 mU/L there is no treatment advocated. Only in cases where there are severe troublesome symptoms of hypothyroidism presnet even at lower values (6 to 9.9) then some times treatment is given. With the value mentioned 4.2 mU/l there is NO Hypothyroidism. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, it would have been better if you had mentioned the actual test results, as that would have given a clear idea. On treatment tsh levels should be between 3 to 4 mu/l, for being free from all symptoms. Further, it is better ifyou get a blood glucose test done. Thanks.
