Preetiji, Alcohol in any quantity is bad for health. It provides empty calories, does not have any nutritional value.So in my opinion it is bad in any quantity. More so if a person is over weight. But the choice is yours. Thanks.

As you have dust allergy most probably your irritation is also due to allergy. Anti-allergic eye drops will give you relief from itching but i suggest you consult a pulmonologist who specializes in allergic disorders and get yourself desensitized or start taking anti allergic tablets like montelukast

Hello, I am 23 yrs old girl and I am suffering from thyroid disease and my Tsh level is increased by 9, and my weight is increasing day by day. What should I do?

Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS

Check your levels of thyroid antibodies. If they are high then you need to start medications for thyroid. What you have is subclinical hypothyroidism. A small dose of thyroid hormone tablet will solve your problems. Your weight loss will be achieved only after correction of tsh levels & following a regular diet & exercise programme.

The treatment of gout is simple. Keep uric acid continuously below 6 to prevent uric acid deposition. Yes diet control helps but, bcoz most gout pts hv a genetic predisposition, diet control will not allow uric acid to be decreased below 6/5 which will control the disease. Most gout pts will require a medicine along with diet control. A common misconception by most doctors is to stop dals, cabbage, spinach etc. But vegetable or plant sources of protein do not convert well to uric acid. If you stop dals and non veg you will hv no source of protein left. If you take your medicine properly, you can even have a bit of non veg too.

Diabetes can also fluctuate everyday. A better parameter is hba1c. Which gives you an average sugar of last 2 months. You should follow a good exercise and diet regimen. You may need allopathy medicines some day.

It is essential to start anti diabetic drug treatment with either oral drugs or insulin injections. In addition exercise (brisk walking for 1 h a day) and restricted diet avoiding sweets, direct sugar are necessary. Untreated diabetes affects every vital organ in the body adversely, so please take care.

Your tsh values are in normal range with above dosage? hypothyroidism normally doesn't cause weight gain more than 4 kg. Your weight gain is may be related to diet. According to your height and weight and bmi you fall in obese 1 cat. You should give more attention on diet along with exercise. There are certain medication like metformin and orlistat that might help to loose weight but that needs prior clinical examination. You can consult your diabetologist or endocrinologist for the same.

Dear lybrate-user, you are not advised to take honey with warm water. Honey contains 70 calories 10 time sugar. As a diabetic patient carry on your medicines and have physical exercise 30 minutes morning. Take 100% safe ayurveda drugs to control your sugar level. Be attentive to your daily foods. Ok.

Hello sir my fasting sugar is 115/110 and post lunch is 132/140
what is indicates? And my weight is 70 kg constant.
100-126 Level indicates PRE-DIABETES stage. It means that if you can control now. You can reverse your sugar levels and be healthy. BUT if you don't control now. You could slip into diabetes stage. So take care now! >> Eat whole grain food/grains like ragi, wheat, jowar instead of refined grains like maida/ sooji/ white bread etc..>> Reduce foods with high GI Index like potato, white rice, banana, mango..>> Avoid all forms of simple sugars like Colas, juices, sweets, cakes, biscuits, pizzas, noodles etc..>> Eat fruits with low/medium GI index like apple, guava, mosambi, orange..>> Do at least 30-45 mins of exercise everyday. Walk for 10 mins after every meal.

What is your bmi? it has to be nearer 23 kgs per sq meter. Anything above 25 is over weight and above 30 is obesity. You have not mentioned sugar levels. Walking 30 mins is not enough, it has to be more than 1 h. Caloric intake has to be monitored. Please remember even if one reduces 1 or 3 kgs it helps.
