Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. However, the patient does not need to take medicine unless his/her post. Prandial blood sugar level reaches 200. If post. Prandial blood sugar level reaches 200 then patient can take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnema sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Along with intake of medicines the patient need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. In order to decrease the intake of carbohydrate in diet the patient should avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

The moment we get diagnosed with diabetes, our minds cringe in fear by the thought of all the restraint on our life, especially diet, which would be imposed on us for a lifetime, taking away the joy from celebrations and fun eat out sessions etc. Diet management is of utmost importance in diabetes not only to control blood sugar levels but also to keep other risks such as body weight and heart risk factors at bay. People with HbA1c levels mild to moderately elevated (<7.5%) at diagnosis, may be advised to take a diet and lifestyle modification trial before they are put on any drugs and some of these people will be able to control their diabetes/pre-diabetes for a significant amount of time without drugs. Even for people on drugs or insulin diet and lifestyle management is equally important. Therefore, dietary modifications to manage risk factors for CVD are very important in diabetics. These modifications include controlling the intake of salt and ‘bad’ fats in your diet, and the recommended levels of intake are lower than those in general population Diabetics in general are often advised even by their doctors and dieticians, some times, to consume ‘low fat’ diet to manage their heart risk. But In India, where average intake of carbs is much higher than recommended intake of fat, for most people, such an advice is not only erroneous, it is harmful! (Read: Indian diet: ‘pro’s and ‘con’s, to know more) Instead what is needed is to replace the ‘bad’ fats, present in high quantities in vanaspati (found in snack items and restaurant/ fast food meals etc.), full cream milk, butter, ghee and red meat (but not mutton: read more), with vegetable oils (such as olive, canola, rice bran etc. But not coconut and palm oil)

Please stop all dairy products and eggs .Go for a plant based diet .Diabetes can be reversed with strict diet and lifestyle changes and minimal medications. All animal products have antibiotics, steroids and growth hormone injected for rapid growth of the animal and more milk production. So please stay away from diary products and eggs.

I am 33 years old and I have diabetes. I don't get proper sleep in the nights. Is it because of my diabetes.

Diabetes and sleep disturbance is not directly related. However, if blood sugar level is too high then at night there may be more urination, because glucose in the urine draws water and bladder becomes repeatedly full and one has to et up more often to pass urine. That can disturb the sleep. So it is essential to control blood sugar effectively. Other than this, there is no reason for sleep disturbance.

Primary requirement is strict blood sugar control. If that is achieved and if you have high bp that also should be controlled. To reduce creatinine reduce protein in take to 0.6 g per kg. Most important is absolute sugar control.

What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
, hashimoto's thyroiditis is an auto immune disease, where there is lymphocytic infiltration of thyroid gland and anti bodies against thyroid peroxidase enzyme are produced by our own autoimmune cells, which destroy thyroid secreting cells. This leads to hypothyroidism. One of the cause is said to be excess consumption of salt through food. (iodinated salt). This is the major cause of hypothyroidism in usa. In india it is less common. Women get it more often. A person with ht usually has other family members also having some or the other autoimmune condition. Some of them may also have another autoimmune disease too. Only treatment is to give thyroxine hormone for life time. Iodine has no role in treating the condition.

Hello, for your cholesterol levels you don't need any medicine. And yes for your uric acid and HB you need to consult a doctor. For your cholesterol eat raw garlic clove daily and reduce your oil intake. Regural exercise is a must. Drink plenty of water.

Hello- follow these points for blood sugar control- a) avoid day sleep. B) avoid over eating, non-vegetarian diet, rice, potato and dairy products. C) take evening meals before 7 pm. D) walk at least 100 yards or sit in vajrasana position after meals. E) go for morning walk or kapal bhati pranayam early morning. F) physical exertion and increase sweating will help in diabetes. G) avoid small meals like break fast and supper, instead go for two heavy meals. H) amla, turmeric and shilajeet are beneficial in diabetes control and to reduce diabetic complications. No pork is not safe as it contains eggs of worms which can develop worm infestation in your brain and thus causing epilepsy (cystisarcosis).
