start doing alternative fruit fasting for 30 days. In this you have to eat only fruits and drink juices every alternative days, secondly the other alternative days eat a little less than your hunger, start eating triphla chooran in morning empty stomach with warm water, try not to eat anything after sunset, make sure you are drinking 3 to 4 liters water everyday but make sure you dont drink water right after you eat food or during food, give a gap of 90 minutes, start doing surya namaskar in morning, eat lots of almonds (10 a day)

I feel excessive hunger after my meals. I checked sugar Gtt test. Fasting sugar 99.6. Glucose tolerance test results 115. Doctors say I am not diabetic. But because of so quick digestion it may lead to sugar. So they have advised me not to take any sweets & change the food habits. My doubt is other than excessive hunger I do not have any other problems. What to do to control my hunger.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Madam, banana whether raw or ripe has enough carbs. About 100 g of raw banana gives 89 calories. There are many minerals and vitamins in small quantity. The list is big. A potato or banana both are carbs only. So for a diabetic person both are to be taken in a restricted quantity. As regards the diabetes there is no mention of blood glucose levels, (fasting, Pp & HbA1c5), so there is no idea whether it is well controlled. Even the name of the tablet is not mentioned. Plus no details about weight, height, diet pattern and extent of exercise. Thanks.

If my sugar level is 230 before fasting then what medicine to take it to control.
Sugar control is not just based on the numerical value of sugar level that the patient has- it sugar treatment was that easy then instead of doctors a mobile app would have told you the medicine!!! Your Sugar level of 250mg/dl is very high and as such needs holistic approach of diet-medicines-exercise for its control.

Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland is under active and does not produce sufficient amounts of thyroid hormones required in the body. The most cause of hypothyroidism is Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is an auto immune disorder in which the antibodies are produced by the immune system against its own tissue, which in turn attacks the thyroid gland resulting in hypothyroidism.Severe Iodine defficiency can also lead to hypothyroidism . Natural Homeopathic remedies for hypothyroidism are highly effective and especially useful for people who want to avoid the side effects of prescription drugs. Top Homeopathic Remedies for Hypothyroidism Calcarea carb , Sepia ,Lycopodium, Graphites and Nux Vomica are the leading homeopathic remedies for hypothyroidism The normal range of TSH levels is 0.4 to 4.0 milli-international units per liter. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects Medicines will reach you via courier services

Understand Your Risk for Diabetes!

MD - General Medicine, MBBS

Understand Your Risk for Diabetes!

Type 1 diabetes is commonly referred to as juvenile diabetes and is mostly witnessed among young people. It can also occur in adults. In this condition, the body doesn’t produce enough insulin or completely stops producing insulin. The immune system, which saves the body from foreign microbes, attacks the cells that are responsible for producing insulin. The treatment methods include taking insulin shots, oral insulin intake, taking healthy diet, increased physical activity and controlling blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Type 2 diabetes is a condition wherein the body refuses to use insulin in order to carry glucose to each and every cell of the body. The pancreas try to produce more insulin in order to counter the condition but soon give up due to an increased blood pressure. The treatment plan includes medication, making lifestyle changes, and controlling blood-sugar and cholesterol levels.

Gestational diabetes is observed in many pregnant women. The hormones produced during pregnancy can block insulin to be used by the body. While insulin resistance is common during pregnancy, failure of the pancreas to fill in the additional insulin in the body can result in gestational diabetes. Women who are overweight are more likely to develop this condition. Although gestational diabetes goes automatically after the baby is born, it often recurs in the form of type 2 diabetes in a later stage of life.

Risk factors for diabetes

  1. Weight: Being overweight is a primary risk factor for diabetes. An increased amount of adipose tissue increases the risk of insulin resistance by the body. It is therefore essential to shed as much weight as one can to avoid diabetes.
  2. Inactivity: Immobility increases the risk of diabetes in a person. It stacks up glucose in the body, making it difficult for the body to use glucose and convert it into energy. A daily routine which is devoid of physical activity ensures fat storage in the body, which can turn into type 2 diabetes.
  3. Family history: Diabetes, especially type 2, is closely linked with family history. If a person has diabetes, it is very likely that his immediate family or extended family has a history of diabetes.
  4. Ethnicity: African-Americans, people from the Indian subcontinent, Latinos, etc., are more likely to suffer from diabetes compared to their American or European counterparts. Lifestyle and eating habits are the major reasons for diabetes in these races.
  5. Age: Age has a direct correlation with diabetes. The age group of 45–65 is considered to be more diabetes-prone. Inactivity, immobility, and an increase of sugar intake are some of the primary reasons for developing diabetes in this age group. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.
