Rather choose a variety of foods including whole grains, fresh vegetables, salads, fruits, low fat dairy products. 9- Take high-fibre and complex carbohydrates:-like oats as they are easily broken down to basic sugars. Add whole grain foods in your diet. Avoid carbohydrates like white bread, pasta, pizza , candies, and snacks .Instead include high-fiber carbohydrates like wheat bran, flaxseed and methi seeds to your wheat flour.

What Causes Female Infertility?

What Causes Female Infertility?

There are a number of things that may be keeping you from getting pregnant:

Damage to your fallopian tubes. These structures carry eggs from your ovaries, which produce eggs, to the uterus, where the baby develops. They can get damaged when scars form after pelvic infections, endometriosis, and pelvic surgery. That can prevent sperm from reaching an egg.

Hormonal problems. You may not be getting pregnant because your body isn't going through the usual hormone changes that lead to the release of an egg from the ovary and the thickening of the lining of the uterus.

Cervical issues. Some women have a condition that prevents sperm from passing through the cervical canal.

Uterine trouble. You may have polyps and fibroids that interfere with getting pregnant. Uterine polyps and fibroids happen when too many cells grow in the endometrial, the lining of the uterus.

" unexplained" infertility. For about 20% of couples who have infertility problems, the exact causes are never pinpointed.

Uric acid builds up when the body makes too much of it or fails to excrete it. It is a waste product resulting from the metabolism of food. The level of uric acid in your blood can become elevated if your body produces too much or if it doesn't efficiently dispose of it. It is very important to keep your diet in check to avoid food that increases the Uric Acid content in the body. Symptoms of uric acid · Excruciating pain in the foot or big toe. · Difficulty walking. · Waking up from sleep due to foot pain. · Occasionally feeling pain in the knee and ankle. · Limited ability to move. · Persistent itching around the big toe joint. · Gritty accumulations of uric acid crystals called tophi that appear on the joints near the elbows, knees, fingers and toes. Foods You Should Eat If You Are A High Uric Acid Patient Diet Tips for High Uric Acid Patients • Lower fat intake as excess fat reduces normal excretion of uric acid. • Liberal fluid intake to keep the urine dilute. • Restriction or elimination of alcohol. Rajmah Via Shutterstock What to avoid • Shell fishes, red meat, minced meat, meat extracts, organ meats, fishes (sardine, roe, makeral). • Whole pulses (masur, rajmah, chana, chole etc.). Other dals are allowed. • Vegetables and fruits - green peas, spinach, french beans, brinjal, cauliflower, mushroom, chickoo, custard apple. Diet rules • Use less salt while cooking. Avoid adding salt while cooking rice or in chapatti dough. • Use adjuncts like tomato, vinegar, cocum, amchur, lime juice, curd, pepper powder to make the food cooked with less salt palatable. • Remove the salt shaker from the table. • Avoid salted nuts/biscuits, papads, pickles, chutneys. • Avoid excess consumption of processed and preserved foods; eg. Bakery products. • Caution - Do not overdo on salt substitutes as that might cause an electrolyte imbalance. Tomatoes Recommended Foods 1. Fresh cherries, strawberries, blueberries and other red-blue berries. 2. Bananas. 3. Celery. 4. Tomatoes. 5. Vegetables including cabbage and parsley. 6. Foods high in bromelain (pineapple). 7. Foods high in vitamin C (red cabbage, red bell peppers, tangerines, mandarins, oranges, potatoes) 8. Low-fat dairy products. 9. Complex carbohydrates (breads, cereals). 10. Chocolate, cocoa. 11. Coffee, tea.">Hello- Diet Tips for High Uric Acid Patients • Lower fat intake as excess fat reduces normal excretion of uric acid. • Liberal fluid intake to keep the urine dilute. • Restriction or elimination of alcohol.

How to solve a my sugar problem but it's normal stage now any one instructions with me.
Hi, Blood sugar or type-2 diabetes is a lifestyle related problem, so making a few lifestyle changes can lower the chances of developing type 2 diabetes. -Excess weight is the single most important cause of type 2 diabetes, so control or reduce your weight if you are overweight! -Avoid sedentary lifestyle and start get moving. Brisk walking for a half hour every day reduces the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. -Modify your diet: *Choose whole grains and whole grain products over highly processed carbohydrates. The bran and fiber in whole grains make it more difficult for digestive enzymes to break down the starches into glucose. *Avoid sugary beverages which have a high glycemic load, and drinking more of this sugary stuff is associated with increased risk of diabetes. *Choose good fats instead of bad fats. Good fats found in liquid vegetable oils, nuts, and seeds. Trans fats or bad fats are found in many margarines, packaged baked goods, fried foods, fast or junk foods. *Limit intake of red meat and processed meats. Nuts, seeds, beans, tofu, or poultry are much more healthful protein choices. -Quit smoking. -Moderate alcohol consumption decreases the risk of type 2 diabetes. -Avoid taking unnecessary stress or tension! And keep an optimistic attitude in life!

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Blood glucose 260 mg (fasting or PP not mentioned), is very high. This clearly signifies presence of diabetes. Therefore, there is a need for starting the treatment. Because a person in pre-diabetes stage can control it by exercise and diet restriction and prevent it from progressing it to diabetes. However if already confirmed diabetes is present then treatment with drugs is a must. In addition diet control and exercise also are needed. Thanks.

Thyroidinum 3X is a homoeopathic medication. You can take this medicine 20-30 min before or 30-40 min after the eating. Before taking medicine it is good if you Wash your Inside of mouth and tongue properly with clean water. If any homoeoapthic doctor has suggested to take you this medicine its okk.

My father having sugar and My father always suffering from leg pain by walking and working please give me suggestion.
If the leg pain is on walking, then it needs evaluation. Get a arterial and venous doppler done for the leg. It will give an idea about the legs circulation & whether it can be managed with medicines or intervention.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Diabetes in the long run does affect sexual desire and even cause erectile dysfunction. This can happen even if blood glucose is fairly well controlled. If blood glucose is not well controlled then damage can be more severe. Since you have not given any glucose values (FBG, PP & HbA1c%) it is difficult to comment. Another important aspect is you being obese (morbidly obese), that is also a main cause. You may try certain drugs like PDE-V inhibitors. However, strict glucose control and weight reduction both are important plus yu may have to consult a sex specialist. Thanks.

Anybody who is a diabetic can be started on insulin at any stage of the disease. Insulin is always given to a patient in a customised manner and there is no set dose for starting or continuing insulin. So you need to follow up with the doctor in person for setting your insulin dose.

Hello, Thanks for the query. If diabetes (blood glucose) is not in control and if patient has high blood glucose, then a considerable glucose is lost through urine (glycosuria), this can cause severe tiredness and weight loss. It is necessary to maintain FBG <100 mg, PP 150 to 170 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. Then all the related symptoms can be in control. As regards the low hemoglobin (7.6 g%, that too is too low. This can also contribute to feeling weak and tired, plus to weight loss. She needs immediate correction of her Hb level, either by giving packed cells (RBCs), or Iron Injections plus oral supplements. Also investigations have to be done to find out is there any cause for iron loss or is there any bleeding problem. So better to visit your local good hospital and get the treatment. Thanks.
