If fasting sugar is 100, PP is 81 and HbA1C is 6.44. What does it indicate? Is it per-diabetic condition? Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Fasting 100 mg & PP 81 mg look absolutely normal levels. However HbA1c% 6.44, looks closer to being a diabetic. Between 5.7 to 6.4 % is considered as pre-diabetic. Similarly Fasting 101 to 125 mg & PP 141 to 199 mg is considered as pre-diabetic. Which means there is a possibility that the person can progress to be a diabetic if no care is taken. Precautions needed are dietary restrictions, weight control and regular exercise. Thanks.

Water water flushes out toxins including excess uric acid from the body. Have at least 10- 12 glasses of water daily. Apple malic acid in apple neutralizes uric acid and thus provides relief to the sufferers. You should consume one apple daily after a meal. Lime the citric acid found in lime is a solvent of the uric acid. The juice of half a lime squeezed into a glass of water should be taken twice daily. French bean juice another effective home remedy for gout is french beans juice. The healthy juice can be consumed twice everyday for treating gout or high uric acid. Celery seed this is a popular home remedy to lower uric acid levels in the body. Have celery seeds extract to get best results. Eat 1 teaspoon flex seeds after meal. Drink wheat grass juice in early morning.

Manage Diabetes With Ayurveda

Manage Diabetes With Ayurveda

Diabetes is a chronic metabolic disorder that results in higher levels of blood sugars in the body. It is assuming epidemic proportions, and India has become the new diabetic capital with more than 50 million diabetic people. The main problem with diabetes is it does not completely go away, and there is a whole myriad of issues that it brings along with it. Heart attacks, strokes, eyesight problems, delayed wound healing, nerve damage and impotence. Therefore, diabetes and by that we mainly mean blood sugar levels have to be managed so that there is delay in onset of the associated conditions and/or reduced in severity.

Ayurveda refers to diabetes as Prameha (excessive urination) and Madhumeha (sugary urine) and has identified close to 20 forms of the disease. According to Ayurvedic belief, each disease is caused due to imbalance in kapha, pitta, and vata doshas and diabetes is caused by all these, predominantly by kapha. With any stream of medicine, management of diabetes involves two tracks - one is lifestyle changes and the second is medications.

Lifestyle changes include the following:

  1. Diet: Reduce the amount of rice, sugar, potato, sweet fruits, maida, deep fried foods, and red meat. Protein-rich foods like lentils, soya, green leafy vegetables and fish should be increased. Diet plan should change to small, frequent meals instead of binge eating.
  2. Exercise: Include 30 minutes of regular exercise into your daily routine if you have a diabetic predisposition.
  3. Others: Avoid smoking and alcohol, ensure sufficient sleep, avoid sleeping during day time, improved foot and eye care, periodically check sugar levels, and manage stress levels.

Medication:
Ayurveda has a whole lot of home remedies proven to be very effective against diabetes.

  1. Jambhul: Eugenia Jambolana whether eaten raw or juice extract has been shown to have beneficial effects in managing sugar levels and cholesterol.
  2. Gymnema sylvestre: Used to manage diabetes for over 2000 years, it reduces sugar cravings and is being touted as the future for diabetes treatment.
  3. Bitter gourd (Momordica charantia): It has 3 components that give it strong antidiabetic properties. The charantin reduces blood sugar levels; the polypeptide has insulin-like effects; and lectin that again has hypoglycemic effects.
  4. Bel (Aegle marmelos): Also known as wood apple, leaves of the plant are shown to have antidiabetic properties. 5 to 10 leaves can be chewed on a daily basis to help control blood sugar levels.
  5. Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum graecum): Consuming 10 g of fenugreek seeds soaked in water increases the amount of insulin produced, thereby increasing sugar breakdown.
  6. Neem: Chewing about 4 to 5 leaves in the morning on an empty stomach helps to control blood sugar levels. Alternately, neem leaves powder is available which can be dissolved in water and consumed.

Prediabetes is condition when your Hba1C is more than 5.7 but less than 6.4% .Normally you should not have weight loss in this condition but if you have you have to look for other medical conditions like, thyroid dysfunction, tuberculosis. You can drink small quantity of red wine once a week. Glucerna shake can be taken by prediabetic but if you already have weight loss then first diagnose the cause reason for same with help of doctors.

Hello.My mother is suffering from Thyroid with TSH= 12.0. What kind of problem is this? Is it possible to completely cure this problem? Or lifetime medications? I got no reply about the period of medications. Kindly brief me about the pattern of problem and medications. Thank you.

Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Hello, Thanks for the query. With TSH 12.0 mU/L, she has hypothyroidism. This needs to be treated with Levothyroxine. Dosage has to be decided on the basis of TSH, T4 value and her body weight. Treatment has to be for lifetime. If not treated it can lead to multiple problems like weight gain, cold intolerance, slow heart rate, tiredness, early fatigue, muscle and joint pains, anxiety, depression, dry skin, dry hair and hair fall and menstrual problems. Early initiation of treatment is necessary. On treatment TSH should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L. If you have any doubts please come back. Thanks.

Lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. You can have cinnamon in your diet. It has no effect on hypothyroidism or thyroid function. Since there is no mention of TSH level, I can not comment whether your hypothyroidism is in proper control or not. When on treatment with adequate dosage of thyroxine TSH is usually maintained around 3 to 4 mU/L, at that level all the symptoms are in check. Then the efforts to reduce weight also do help. Thanks.
