In diabetes diet plays a very important role. You need to be very particular about food choices & timings to control blood glucose levels. Even medicines will not work properly unless you are particularly about food choices. I would suggest you to properly follow the do's and don't of diabetes so to control the blood glucose levels.

What is a juvenile diabetes and type 1 and type 2 diabetes and how to treat this disease and what precautions to take.

What is a juvenile diabetes and type 1 and type 2 diabetes and how to treat this disease and what precautions to take.
Rahil, Earlier Juvenile diabetes term was used for T1 DM, because it was thought that it occurs only in juveniles (children). Now it is called T1DM, where only insulin is needed for treatment and survival. T2DM is invariably in adults and older persons. There is lack of insulin and resistance to insulin plus patient is usually over weight. In case T2DM one can prevent it by adapting modified life style- regular exercise for more than 1 hour, restricted diet giving exact calories based on normal body weight, avoiding sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and aerated sweetened drinks. Consume more of fruits, green leafy vegetables and salads. Plus refrain from alcohol and smoking.

When is it a Right Time to Visit a Fertility Specialist?

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
When is it a Right Time to Visit a Fertility Specialist?
Know the Right Time to Visit a Fertility Specialist.

If you’ve been facing problems in conceiving, it may be time to get yourself checked as it’s possible that you may be suffering from certain fertility issues or need professional guidance. A series of tests usually determine the root cause of the problem. These tests can include a physical examination, analysis of semen and blood tests, amongst others. There are certain factors that you and your partner must keep in mind when deciding upon the best time to opt for these tests and get started on an infertility treatment programme.

If you’re a female, it’s time to get yourself examined when:
1. You haven’t been able to conceive for over a year despite trying (when you are under 35)
2. You haven’t been able to conceive after trying for 6 months (above the age of 35)
3. You’ve had 1 or more miscarriages
4. You’ve been ovulating irregularly and your previous drug treatment has failed to correct the problem
5. You suffer from damaged or blocked fallopian tubes and endometriosis (a condition where tissues that cover your uterus also develop outside of the womb, causing pain and bleeding)
6. You have a history of genital infections

If you’re a male, you should consider an infertility treatment if you experience the following:
1. Facing difficulty in sperm ejaculation
2. Suffering from a low sperm count including poor sperm movement or structure (sperm’s shape and size)
3. Having an undescended testicle (a genital abnormality that occurs when the testicle fails to move into its normal position in the scrotum during the first 3 months of your life)

Apart from the above mentioned points, another important factor that you and your partner must decide upon is whether or not you intend to use assisted reproductive procedures, such as ICSI (IntraCytoplasmic Semen Insertion) or in vitro fertilization (IVF) to help in conceiving. While the former sees fertilisation occurring naturally after the eggs and sperm get placed inside one of the two fallopian tubes, the latter deals with the transference of the embryo created in the laboratory into the uterus.

Even though the thought of infertility can be disappointing for you and your partner, early and timely intervention can help in easing up the process of conception and remove obstacles that might hinder your chances of having a baby.

Mr. Lybrate-user, she should control her blood sugar very well, avoiding serious hypoglycemic episodes. As for you if you do not have diabetes, then there is no special precaution required. Do not consider her diabetes as some thing special situation, just handle it as a routine problem. Best of luck.

I have sugar level of 122 before fasting. Can I reduce that in a week time. And also if we have neem leaf will the sugar level reduce immediately.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Just stop taking extra sugar in your diet and start brisk morning walk for 30 minutes. You will be able to control it. I dont know whether neem leaf will reduce sugar levels but neem leaves have many medicinal values. So if you want to eat neem leaf then no harm, it will benefit you in some way or the other.

Dear Lybrate User, I should appreciate you for the fact you believe that diabetes can be controlled by lifestyle modifications. Yes that's true, though it's not irreversible. Good that you have concentrated on physical activity , do concentrate on your diet as well. Make flaxseed, drumstick leaves, curry leaves powder and sprinkle 30 gm daily on all the foods you consume throughout the day. Also sprinkle wheat bran and germ daily 30gm throughout on all foods you consume. Consume lot of leeks and lettuce smoothie which is high in fibre content. Also you can consume raw lady's finger water soaked overnight for your diabetes condition.

I am a 24 year old male and I am suffering from hyperthyroidism. what are the do's and don'ts for me? Please help me.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
Treatment for hyperthyroidism can also eventually contribute to excessive weight gain. It is important to learn how to get as much nutrition as possible from your food without eating a lot of extra calories. In addition, eating the correct amount of sodium and calcium are important dietary considerations for people with hyperthyroidism. Get enough calcium and vitamin D. Because hyperthyroidism may contribute to thinning bones, it's important to get enough calcium every day to help prevent osteoporosis. The Institute of Medicine recommends 1,000 milligrams (mg) of calcium a day for adults ages 19 to 50 and men ages 51 to 70. That calcium recommendation increases to 1,200 mg a day if you're a woman age 51 or older or a man age 71 or older. The Institute of Medicine also recommends 600 international units (IUs) of vitamin D a day for adults ages 19 to 70 and 800 IUs a day for adults age 71 and older.
