I am diabetic & take regularly medicines. Please advice me better health care against diabetes.

Bitter gourd, also known as bitter melon, can be helpful for controlling diabetes due to its blood glucose lowering effects. It tends to influence the glucose metabolism all over your body rather than a particular organ or tissue. It helps increase pancreatic insulin secretion and prevents insulin resistance. Thus, bitter gourd is beneficial for both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. However, it cannot be used to entirely replace insulin treatment? drink some bitter gourd juice on an empty stomach each morning. First remove the seeds of two to three bitter gourds and use a juicer to extract the juice. Add some water and then drink it. Follow this treatment daily in the morning for at least two months? also, you can include one dish made of bitter gourd daily in your diet. Any querries inform me.

Hi -happy to help you. I can say that diabetes is biggest problem in india. So not merely sexual capacity but we should think all disorders & prventions. You can go for a 1200- 1400 kcal/day diet plan. No sugar, take gourds more, briown rice, citrus fruits etc. Curd (sour), skim milk, low rice but more whole grains/multi grains, low fried foods, no out side junk, best all home made foods, no stress, yoga/ exercises help more.

Only exercise is not a option to becoming diabetes it depends on your life style or heridritry or your family history. It depends on your eating habits and time management.

Mr. Lybrate-user, hypothyroidism is a thyroxine deficiency disorder, hence replacement of the hormone has to continue for life time. There is no cure. Dose has to be decided on the basis of body weight, t4 and tsh levels at the time of diagnosis.

Hi, I am 28/M years old. Suffering from Insulin resistance. please suggest best solution.

Hi,
I am 28/M years old. Suffering from Insulin resistance. please suggest best solution.
Weight reduction, controlled diet, regular exercise, avoiding high fatty foods, junk foods, pastries and other bakery items. Sweetened aerated drinks, fructose corn syrup containing products, highly processed products, alcohol and smoking, are few of the things which reduce insulin resistance. Looking at your weight and height, bmi is 25 kgs/m2, which is not very high. But if there is central obesity, then that contributes to insulin resistance. Reducing glucose level and bringing down body fat improves insulin action. Your waist should be <85 cms. You should exercise at least for 1 hour a day or a bit more.

Hi hypothyroidism is not curable, but taking thyroxine hormone regularly will keep it in check without any problems, even for conceiving and for pregnancy and for the baby. But treatment has to be continued for life.

I am diabetic patient, what kind of diet I will take and what kind of exercise I will do for better result.
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 - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. 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. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

This means either her diet is wrong or she is not receiving proper treatment kindly mention ongoing treatment in detail and revert. Slip disc is difficult to treat but you should use lumbosacral belt and proper posture is really important in your case. Avoid massages by inexperienced people.
