Hi Doc, If I turn vegan, from where do I get daily requirements of protein and minerals needed for healthy body. Isn't it better to have all types of food instead of adapting a vegan lifestyle and do some sort of physical exercise daily. What is real benefit of turning vegan besides improved cholesterol level and less risk of diabetes and other lifestyle diseases.

Mr. Lybrate-user, being a vegetarian is by ones own choice. Vegetarian diet also does provide all the necessary nutrients and proteins, when proper food selection is made. Whole grain foods, multiple grains usage, use of pulses in good quantity, use of soy beans and peanuts, chanas, etc. Does give good proteins. Milk and dahi, gives a good variety of proteins. Green leafy vegetables, multicloured vegetables, fruits and berries, dry fruits offer almost all needed nutrients. Vegetarian diet is good, advantageous but if you want to shift to other foods, there is no barrier. It always by choice. Thanks.

Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4.

There is no need for any medicine you must time yourself for going to the washroom it might have become a compulsive habit for you use the washroom initially every two hrs before watch and slowly increase the time gap if your investigations show everything normal then you sure can manage it on your own.

Constipation may be due to decreased intake of fluids, fibre,fruits and veggies along with lack of exercise as wellas diabetic gastroparesis. Medication for constipation will cause you to become dependent on it.

From the limited info you have given, your wife seems to have late onset type 1 diabetes. If her blood sugars are well controlled, HbA1c is below 7% and she is not gaining weight, Insulin is perfectly OK. But beware of hypoglycemia. For more info on this condition, read my "Health Tips" section.

Sir my blood sugar test done 4 days back the result is 104/200 now I check with one touch metre it shows 104/147 what is correct my hpa1c is 6.6 what is your suggestion if I am diabetic pls.

PGD Maternal Child Health, MBBS
General Physician, Akola
HbA1c is a test used to know the actual control of blood sugar over a period of last 3 months, rather than diagnosing Diabetes Mellitus. Levels below 6.5 in patients on anti diabetic treatment are considered to be having satisfactory control. Your sugar level after meals in the 1st report is definitely high and suggestive of hyperglycaemia. In the 2nd report it is important to know the time interval between meals and sampling. If it is at 90 minutes of a full meal then it should be normal. Now choosing 1 of the 2 reports or relying solely on HbA1c is not simple. To decide about DM you can go fora GTT ( glucose tolerance test).

Dear Sir, I have diabetes. Which medicine suitable for me ? My sugar Level 300 to 400.

MBBS, MD - General Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Chennai
Taking oral antidiabetic drugs initially when your pancreas is already stressed vl create unhealthy living after few years. Kindly do a hba1c test and if its too high then get started on insulin for first 3 months. The best way is this. Tests to b taken are lipid profile renal function test fbs; ppbs; hba1c urine analysis.
