My husband is 30 years. Has diabetes from last one year and high cholesterol. He is a non smoker, have not even tasted any hot drinks. Taking fibre rich healthy diet and a very active person. His bmi is also perfect. He is depressed that why has it happened for him inspite of all these good habbits and activities. What may be the reason? and how can I make him lead a normal life?

You just not worry about his health and he shouldnt be depressed just give a try to alternative therapy. Try eatng lots of garlic. If u cant have it get it homeopathically allium sativum q 5-7 drops thrice a day,(biochemic) nat phos 30x 4 pills 4 times a day, avoid all types of fats and red meat. (biochemic) kali dichrom 12x, bio combination number 7, 4 pills of each 4 times a day (homeo) gymnema sylvestre q, syzygium jambolanum q 8-10 drops of each in little water twice a day. Its for diabetes. I am 100% sure he will be fine try for 1 month and get back for follow up.

Beside it makes our body more prone to infections. Actually in type 2 diabetes Insulin resistance is more important than absolute levels of Insulin. Insulin deficiency may be fatal in type 1 diabetes and in few cases of type 2.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. When a person is on treatment for hypothyroidism with adequate dosage of levothyroxine, then TSH values remain between 3 to 4 mU/L. With that all the symptoms of hypothyroidism are in check. So in your case the dose given in the beginning itself was low. Unless adequate dosage is given TSH value will not be maintained in the desired range. So there has to be a change made in the present dosage. Thanks.

Hi as you said you are diabetic. Since last 4-5 years. N your sugar levels r with in normal range. You suffer only constipation or say hard stool. Which could be one of the side of antidiabetic drugs. So wat you need to do is. Eat more fibers in the evening. And use powder lactifibre with milk or syp. Lactulose with normal water at night before bed.

You have subclinical hypothyroidism, and dyslipidemia. If you are not symptomatic, mensutral cycles normal, anti tpo test negative and not planning for family, you can watch the tsh over 3monthy interval if you document a rising trend then probably yes you should be treated. Because of your low HDL you have raised ldl/hdl ratio you need o good lifestyle modification with regular 45 min exercise daily. Regards.

Hi when we have hypo thyrodism can we have spinach in our diet? As it is rich in protein?
Lybrate-user, spinach is not very rich in protein, a small cup of spinach gives about 1 g of protein. Raw vegetables contain fiber, vitamins (b complex, vit c etc) and some protein and fat. Water content is very high. In hypothyroidism it can be consumed. Thanks.

Exercising Tips for Diabetes
EXERCISE TIPS FOR DIABETICS

Regular exercise can lower blood glucose and possibly reduce the amount of medication you need to treat diabetes, or even eliminate the need for medication. Here are a few useful exercise tips:

Get your doctor’s approval before starting an exercise program
Start slowly with a low-impact exercise such as walking, swimming or jogging
Warm up for 5 minutes before starting to exercise and cool down for 5 minutes after
Avoid doing activity in extremely hot or cold temperatures. Choose indoor options when the weather is extreme
Drink plenty of water before, during, and after activity to stay hydrated
Always carry a source of carbohydratewith you so you’ll be ready to treat low blood glucose
Activities should be energizing but not overly difficult
Wear athletic shoes that are in good shape and are the right type for your activity
Try to exercise at the same time every day for the same duration. This will help control your blood sugar
Exercise at least three times a week for about 30 to 45 minutes
If you plan to exercise more than an hour after eating, it’s a good idea to have a snack.
If you use insulin, exercise after eating, not before
Test your blood sugar before, during and after exercising
Do not exercise when your blood sugar is more than 240
Carefully inspect your feet before and after activity for blisters, redness or other signs of irritation
Stop doing an activity if you feel any pain, shortness of breath or light-headedness.
Talk to your doctor about any unusual symptoms that you experience.

What are the main healthy food for the sugar patient. And which food helps to produce insulin?

What are the main healthy food for the sugar patient. And which food helps to produce insulin?
In your daily diet, Methi (fwnugreek)seeds, sweet potatoes, turmeric and cinnamon have specific anti diabetes properties. Amla and cocum have indirect benefits. Have them part of your daily diet. But four items are specifically antidiabetic. 1. Rice. 2. Potatoes 3. Fried food in oil and ghee 4. Sweet. Avoid them forever. But having any one of the items once in a while is not harmful. Small amount of desi ghee with roti is good. But don't overdo anything. Eat 200 g of fruity and 100 g of leafy vegetables everyday. Find a good doctor and follow his/her advise always.

Hiii my mother age 55 years old sugar patient sugar level 400 sugar not control please tell me som medicine.
Mr Sameer, The level mentioned is too high and if not controlled early may cause or precipitate long term complications. So see that the level is brought under control rapidly. To give any suggestions I need more information like : Current fasting and PP sugar levels, HbA1c%, drugs being taken with dosage, diet pattern and quantity of physical exercise done daily. It will be better if you come in a private conversation with all the details, where I can give specific suggestions and prescription. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines like she should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (about 100 g / day). etc.

What is the symptoms of diabetes in 3 year old kids? Does dark circle around the eyes is the symptom of diabetes?
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. The symptoms of T1 diabetes are Increased thirst and frequent urination. Excess sugar building up in your child's bloodstream pulls fluid from tissues. Extreme hunger, Weight loss, Fatigue, Irritability or behavior changes, Fruity-smelling breath, Blurred vision & Yeast infection. But best is do a blood test and check the glucose level, that will clear the doubt. Thanks.

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)
