Hello Dr. My friend mother has diabetes so please tell something. That she cures from these disease.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Diabetes cannot be cured. If managed well enough, it can be curtailed to avoid complications such as kidney failure, amputation, blindness and stroke. Preventing or managing diabetes requires clinical interventions as well as lifestyle changes. Medication is only one small part of managing diabetes. The major changes come from self-care activities. There are five essential self-care behaviours that have good outcomes. 1. Diet – Consume a low-fat, high-fibre diet helps. Eat lot of fruits, vegetables (at least 4-5 helping a day) along with whole meal, cereals and lentils 2. Exercise for at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. 3. Medications – Be compliant with the dosages. 4. Testing - Monitoring blood sugar and screening for complications 5. Psychology – Acceptance, coping and problem solving skills

I am 24 years girl. My question is regarding my diet I am fasting for 9 days as my weight has gained so Wat should be my diet during these fasting days and boiled potatoes wil be fatty for me so what should I prefer. And I am having hypothyroidism TSH 6.57.

MS - ENT,MBBS

Hi First: medicines are mandatory. Otherwise ypu might have weight gain, muscle ache, sleep and anxiety issues as well as gynaecological and cardiac issues later. You need to get an USG neck done  and an FNAC USG guided of thyroid gland. FT3/FT4/TSH If ypu have already done these tests Share on Lybrate I can help you better. Any history of alcohol  intake /fatty food /sugary food How much exercise do you get done every day? Ideally you should be doing a good mix of cardio, weights and crossfit  exercises to keep you healthy Together  with a balanced diet with optimum  healthy fat protein and carbs. Avoid  deep fried fatty food and fast food. No soft drinks /sugary drinks. I am outlining  food you should avoid or restrict in Hypothyroidism. It's important  you maintain  your body weight exercise regularly. Weight gain increases thyroid hormone requirements. Avoid cruciferous   group of veggies  like cabbage and broccoli. Avoid soya bean in all forms. No soya, nugget, chunk, tofu or milk. Limit their intake: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and bok choy. Cooking the vegetables can reduce the effect that cruciferous vegetables have on the thyroid gland. Limiting your intake to 5 ounces a day appears to have no adverse effect on thyroid function. Decrease gluten  intake from processed  food. Always try whole grain varieties of cereals which is rich in fibres and help improve  bowels (Take your thyroid replacement  medicine several hours before or several hours after food rich in fibres. Otherwise problem  with absorption  of hormone. 20 to 35 gram of fibres daily from all sources. Avoid excessive fatty (deep fried) and sugary food as hypothyroidism  causes your metabolism  to slow down &weight gain. Avoid highly salted food, chips, pickles, sauces as they Contain  large amount of sodium. Hypothyroidism  puts you at risk of high BP and excess sodium in salt aggravates Coffee  in excess. And coffee with thyroid hormone  replacement  can prevent absorption. Alcohol. It is toxic to thyroid gland and prevents  hormone production and absorption. The problems of hypothyroidism gets better with medicines, diet and exercise. You will start better as the levels of your hormone normalises. Initially you need to do the TSH test every 6 weeks till normal TSH then every 3 months As your thyroid hormone status normalises you will find it easier to shed weight. Fasting occasionally is okay but not as a weight decreasing method. Exercise. Walk/run/yoga/weight training 30 minutes every day. 50gram protein atleast one source of protein with every meal. No deep fried junk food sugary drinks, cola, excessive fatty food. You can have one cheat treat a day. Hope this helps Take care

Hello, These are some home made tips to get shiny and strong long hair. *Massage the scalp for 10 to 15 minutes after bathing with water. This stimulates the blood circulation and strengthens the hair follicles in the scalp. *Massage the scalp and hair with coconut milk or Aloe Vera gel. Leave it for ½ hour, and then rinse with warm water. Repeat 3 times a week. *Massage into the scalp and hair honey with egg yolk. Leave for a 1/2 hour, then rinse. *Massage almond oil on scalp 2-3 times a day, daily. This will stop further hair loss. *Rinse hair with a mix of apple cider vinegar and sage tea to help hair grow *Make a shampoo by mixing 100 g each of amla (Indian goose berry), reetha, and shikakai and boil in two liters of water until the liquid reduces to half. Use this shampoo for your hair for at least one month. Your hair will become thick.

I am 56 having high b. P. diabetes taking pills every day but having urine problem in the night which hampers my sweet sleep, pl suggest remedy.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, when diabetes is not in control, blood glucose level goes up. If glucose level goes over 180 mg/100 ml, then it appears in the urine. If still higher level is there in the blood then more glucose is filtered in to urine. When glucose is present in the bladder, it draws more water through omosis, this fills the urinary bladder more often. This causes more urge to urinate at nkigt. Hence strict blood sugar control is the only option in reducing urination at night. Plus uncotrolled diabetes also causes more thirst and water intake increases, it also contributes.

I am 47 years old I have fast sugar 114 and post sugar 110 so what should take & avoid fruit and food?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
You may be having fasting impaired glucose tolerance, better to get a glucose tolerance test done with 75 g glucose feed. This will give a clear picture. Fasting impaired glucose tolerance means there is a possibility of developing diabetes at a later date. Hence you should exercise regularly, avoid weight increase, avoid direct sweets as much as possible, avoid deep fried food and smoking & alcohol.

She is having diabetes. She is taking insulin injections. Is it neccesary that she has to continue the injections for her entire life?

Diploma in Nutrition

Hello, not necessary, provided diabetes in control. I think your doctor suggested for insulin to balance the sugar levels in body. Don't worry she will be good, please manage a good healthy diet. Like more protein from soya, wheat, and other plant sources. And add fiber and omega-3 food supplements.

Hello my question is- is it safe to consume protein from protein supplements if someone is having diabetes and if yes then how much content of it.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
consuming protein supplements is fine for a diabetic person. But most of the protein supplements contain a good amount of sugar in the preparation. That is not necessary. If you pick up a preparation free of carbohydrate then it is ideal.

I have diabetes for past 5 years. I have been taking regular insulin doses Like huminsulin-R 3 time's and lantus 1 time. I want to put on weight so I have been trying many thing but nothing is happening so how can I put on gain.

BHMS
Homeopath, Gurgaon
The total calories should be more than the energy required. There should be a step-wise increase in the calories, as a sudden increase may not be tolerated. Fluids should be restricted before and during meals. At night before going to bed, have warm milk. In your diet include 1 teaspoon of desi ghee (clarified butter) (preferably prepared from cow's milk) every day.
