Mr. lybrate-user, Honey contains sucrose which is same as sugar. If person with diabetes takes it then it is like eating sugar. There will be a rapid increase in the blood glucose level, depending on how much honey is taken. Plus I have no idea as what advantage honey has in "ulcer like condition" Hence I am of te opinion it should be avoided. Thanks.

Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style.

Yes. Kindly check it again. As PP is 287 while Fasting is 122. You have Impaired Glucose Tolerance for sure. Kindly do Hb1AC and Fasting and PP. Avoid Sugar and sugar containing products. Feel free to call me. Regards.

Hi, my Age: 19 Yrs Gender Female. Thing Is I have hypothyroid which Is borderline I guess 3 points more from 1 month and I am taking tablet of 25 mg. Doctor Is it OK to consume aloevera juice to cure hypothyroidism.

Lybrate-user ji, Thanks for the query. When on treatment with adequate dose of Levothyroxine, TSH is maintained around 3 to 4 mU/L, at that one is free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism. Since there is no mention of actual TSH and T4 levels, it is difficult comment. Hypothyroidism is a hormone (thyroxine) deficiency disease. This hormone is needed daily for various metabolic functions in the body plus for functioning of brain. So there is a need for daily supplementation. Hence there is no cure. Aloe vera has no effect on thyroid function. You have to thyroxine tablets for life time. Thanks.

Dear lybrate-user, once you get high glucose level may be due to drug's side effect. Now if you have normal glucose level then no need to worry. You should take precaution of direct sweets and do regular exercise and yoga. Thanks.

Management Of Infertility

MBBS, DGO, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology
IVF Specialist, Navi Mumbai

Hello,

I am Dr Vishwas Parulekar. I am a gynecologist in infertility specialist. I have received my education from K E M hospital and Nair Hospital in Mumbai and I have done diploma in reproductive medicine from KL University Germany. I am practicing for last 20 years and there are a lot of changes in gynecology as well as infertility practice. 20 years back the accessibility of the techniques like IVF and laparoscopy was not easy but nowadays it is very easy and accessible to all the people.

But the mainstay of the treatment race on the accurate diagnosis and in infertility the approach to the diagnosis and management is a team approach where the infertility specialist the one does IVF the sonologist the one who does the sonography and the laparoscopic surgeon who does the laparoscopy and hysteroscopy on the patient. They should have the best coordination and that is lacking in many of the places. So our hospital stands out in this respect that we have all these facilities under one roof and done by the same team.

So the coordination in the treatment and diagnosis is the best so we do here 3D 4D sonography along with colour Doppler and routine 2D sonography and we do laparoscopy and hysteroscopy along with all the laparoscopic and hysteroscopy procedure. Whatever I needed to treat infertility and we can do in for in vitro fertilization and with ICSI and IMCI with laser assisted hatching and we can do the freezing of the eggs embryos and spermatozoa so you also do the surrogacy treatment in our Centre.

We have helped hundreds of the couples in last 10 to 12 years of our infertility practice and Our centre is a state of the art centre and it is easily accessible and it is also not very expensive so it is really affordable people are costly procedure like IVF or ICSI can be done in analysis the cost of any common surgery which people do in a private nursing home if you want to know more about your infertility condition and you if you want to talk to me you can book an appointment through lybrate.com

Foods That Can Be Used To Reduce Blood Sugar Level

Foods That Can Be Used To Reduce Blood Sugar Level

High blood sugar occurs when the insulin in the body fails to metabolize the sugar from the food, which raises the amount of glucose in your blood. It is a metabolic disorder which can be managed effectively with the help of lifestyle modifications such as exercise and food. This article is going to focus on the foods that you can eat to lower your blood sugar levels.

Here are 9 foods that you can use to reduce blood sugar levels:

Cinnamon: cinnamon is a herb which is very effective in getting your blood sugar down to manageable levels. You can simply sprinkle cinnamon on your food before eating it.

Fenugreek (methi): fenugreek is a common spice which is used in almost all indian cuisines. It has a number of health benefits, one of which is reducing blood sugar levels. Soaking fenugreek in water and then drinking it the next day is a very effective remedy in combating sugar problems.

Garlic: not just for sending away the vampires, it is also very effective in blood sugar control. Extracts of garlic have been shown to increase insulin in the body which is required to metabolize the sugar in the body.

Heart healthy fats: heart healthy fat based foods such as nuts and seeds are good for increasing the good cholesterol levels (hdl) in the body. Avocadoes contain nutrients which lower the risks of various diseases such as diabetes. In a nutshell, these fats make the cells of the body less resistant to insulin.

Blueberries: blueberries contain anthocyanin (water soluble pigments) which is very good for your health. They also contain fiber in large amounts which make you feel fuller faster. This fruit has also been shown to improve insulin sensitivity in the body.

Vinegar: vinegar is an age old remedy to control blood sugar levels; it contains acetic acid which causes a reduction in certain harmful enzymes in the stomach. Vinegar is also known to prevent blood sugar spikes when consumed with food.

Complex carbohydrates: complex carbohydrates raise your blood sugar but not like its cousin, simple carbohydrates. Simple carbohydrates cause an immediate spike in your blood sugar levels where as complex carbs provide a steady stream of energy. So drop that packet of refined flour and get that whole wheat variant.

Cherries: cherries, especially tart cherries and dark sweet cherries, are full of anthrocyanins. Insulin resistance prevents insulin from working properly to control blood sugar in normal ranges. Eating a diet high in anthrocyanins can mean improved use of insulin and lower blood sugars.

Nuts: people who eat nuts regularly have lower rates of heart disease than people who don't eat them.
