Hi, Weight gain could be due to various reasons 1) when woman is attaining menopause she tends to put on some weight. 2) As person grows older his/her basal metabolic rate decreases, and if the person is consuming same quantities of food as he was doing when he was younger he will put on weight. 3) if hypothyroidism is not well controlled he / she will put on weight. So please get your TSH, T4 and T3 levels checked. 4) by reducing physical activity person puts on weight. 5) Increase in dietary consumption especially of high calorie stuff (high sugar and high fat stuff) will make a person put on weight. Thank you.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if one does not have high bp or hyperglycemia (diabetes), then simple change in lifestyle helps one in keeping bp and blood sugar in control. Modified lifestyle means - regular exercise preferably 1 hour a day (even though 30 minutes is said to be enough), maintaining near normal eight (bmi <23 kgs/m2), taking healthy diet with great deal of green leafy vegetables and salads, eating 2 to 3 servings of fruits a day, using whole grain food products, avoiding refined flours like maida and items made of refined flours like pasta, bread, bakery items, sweets, aerated sweetened drinks (colas), junk foods and pastries. Also refrain from alcohol and smoking. But if diabetes has actually developed similarly if high bp has already set in then drugs are needed along with above mentioned life style modification.

My father has high sugar levels. Tests showed something 300 before food and 330 after food. He regularly used to consume whiskey at nights. He has a high intake of cheese butter tea, brown bread, junk food etc. He has a very bad diet schedule, he eats late night and sleeps directly. Please suggest a diet chart for him.

The difficult part which I see in sorting out your problem is not the diet chart or highly uncontrolled sugars - but the fact that the concerns are yours and not that of your father's! You are disturbed because your father is having such a high sugar and is having such a undisciplined lifestyle but believe me, you will never be able to bring a change in any of these if you are unable to bring a change in the attitude of your father. Firstly he has to realise what high sugars can do to his body. Then he has to accept that he is not immune to such complications and he can also develop such effects on his body as well. And lastly, he has make suitable changes in his routine and diet. By merely handing him over a diet chart- you will achieve nothing. Involve your other family members as well. First change his thoughts then his attitude and the his behaviour!

Hello lybrate user as you asked about your problems related to diabetes and bp as well as gastric discomfort, I would like to advise you that your metabolism isn't pretty and toxins are accumulated in the form of acid and gaseous flatulence with upcoming acidic belching and cause of gaseous pressure to upward on your chest and heart. It gives you heart pain and sometimes located at your under chest. You have low hb about 7% so it is very low. You had not mentioned about your sugar levels as fasting and pp. You should have consult with ayurveda doctor who will help you for your problems.

First thing is adherence to suggested treatment strictly is a must. If still sugar control is not good then you may have to shift to basal analogue insulin like injection basalog once a day. Start with 6 units and gradually build the dosage with self monitoring of blood sugar. Insulin can be increased by 2 units every alternate day. But you have tell me present fasting, after food sugar levels plus hba1c also.

Hello, metformin 250 mg can be taken either on empty stomach (before food) or after food. There is no hard and fast rule. Some patients complain of gastrointestinal side effects, when taken on empty stomach. So for them it is recommended after food.

Yes, a large cyst can cause problem in swallowing. But thyroid cyst and inflammation in larynx are two different things. If you have inflammation at larynx, it will cause difficulties in the things you have mentioned. Biopsy can be done if it to know if its cancerous or not. If its cancerous, you may go for ct scan too.

Hye, thanks for the query. For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - the sugar levels will fluctuate depending on what you ate or did not eat, stress levels and activity levels. You have to try and manage a balanced carb intake. Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. You have to eat 3 main and 3 mid meals. Your diet must include whole grains, seasonal fruits, vegetables, small amounts of nuts and dairy and pulses or dals or lean meats like chicken or fish and egg. Starchy vegetables need to be planned into the diet. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Avoid exercise if sugar levels are above 250 mg/dl. There are many exercises you can do even in this position. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

The most important thing to take care now is tha the kidneys dont get damaged further. So control diabetes and BP if she has it. What is the fasting blood glucose level result? Consult in private on Lybrate or personally with information about your main complains, lifestyle, lab results and diet for detailed advice.
