With such high sugar level it's clear he is diabetic it is important to get him clinically checked from an endocrinologist and then take treatment in the meantime let him not have any direct sugar products and cut down on carbohydrate consumption he should exercise regularly for 45mnts to 1hr in any form like brisk walk etc.

Hair Loss Trigger: Thyroid Problems

The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland at the front of the neck. It produces hormones that regulate many processes throughout the body. If the gland makes too much or too little thyroid hormone, the hair growth cycle may falter. But hair loss is rarely the only sign of a thyroid problem. Other symptoms include weight gain or loss, very dry skin or eczema, sensitivity to cold or heat, and changes in heart rate.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if diabetes id in control, as yours is, there usually no weight reduction. In fact some times weight may go up because some of the drugs used tend to cause increase in weight. Another aspect at 64 years it is rather difficult to add weight by exercise or muscle building. If you are not feeling unusually tired or fatigued, then having a slight less weight is favorable. Your ideal body weight has to be 58.5 kgs (height in cms - 100 x 0.9 = ideal body weight). So my suggestion is maintain the present weight, take a bit more of proteins in the diet like egg white or whey proteins. Maintain sugar levels as you have now. Also exercise daily for 1 hour, brisk walk is an excellent option. Thanks for the question.

Mr B A Kumar, Most patients with T2 DM some time later in disease have to shift on to Insulin as beta cell function progressively reduces. This may happen after 10, 15 or 20 years of having diabetes. You have mentioned that glucose levels are in control, if so then the level should be : Fasting closer to 100 mg and PP should be 150 to 160 mg and HbA1c% <7. If that is achieved then general health will be invariably good. Plus daily exercise for 1 hour and properly planned diet which gives exact amount of calories based on sugar levels, ideal body weight and extent of daily exercise. If you want any specific suggestions please come back with details like fasting and PP sugar levels, HbA1c%, dietary pattern and any other doubt that you may have.

I m 33 years old suffering from diabetes. please provide me. Proper diet to avoid diabetes.

I m 33 years old suffering from diabetes. please provide me. Proper diet to avoid diabetes.
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 250mg/dl. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well.            It's all a matter of discipline.

Inability to gain may be due to many reasons like uncontrolled diabetes, associated thyroid disease or celiac disease or it may be unrelated to diabetes. You need evaluation and then treatment accordingly.

Hi I am 65 and diabetes should include chicken and alcohol in my diet at weekends.

Hi I am 65 and diabetes should include chicken and alcohol in my diet at weekends.
Chicken is lean protein so it is good for the body and does no harm. So you can include it any time you want. Alcohol is empty calories. And it is either made of malt or grains. They can give a spike to your blood sugar. Avoiding it completely is the best solution, but if you really feel like drinking then 1 peg with no added sugary drinks to it can be consumed. Do not snack fried food with it. Do mainly salads n nuts with it.

Mr. lybrate-user, Presence of pus cells signifies urinary tract infection. That needs to be treated with a course of appropriate antibiotic. Potassium is moderately high, needs to be reduced. We have to look at total treatment being taken and the diet. Plus it is important to control blood glucose level effectively, with fasting around 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. Thanks.

I am suffering from sugar please tell me some preventions and precaution to take?
Be on a strict diabetic diet. Avoid direct sugars. Use sugar free tablets instead of sugar. Take medicines regularly according to the advice of your doctor, get your blood and urine examined for sugar every month. Use soft mcr chappals while walking. Take utmost care of your foot and eyes, go for an eye checkup once in a year. Go for a walk everyday for about 1hr. All these will help you to keep your sugar level under control.
