Amla can be taken in diabetic kya? And what we should eat in diabetic. please help.
Yes amla can be taken in diabetes- it's a good vit c source but not the one preserved in sugar/jaggery (amla ka murraba). Major dietary advice for diabetes is to avoid high fat content - so don't take any fried stuff. Take foods with low or moderate glycemic index. Glycemic index of any food item is the speed at which your sugar rises in blood after consuming it.

Mr. lybrate-user, You may try that, as the mix provides very high calories, 1250 in 2 scoops. It has a good amount of carbs and fats. Calories are mainly coming from carbs & fat. Protein quantity is also good. But it should be accompanied by a serious workout. Otherwise there is a strong possibility of adding a lot of belly fat. All the best.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if your blood sugar levels are not controlled then there is a possibility of loosing weight. So please let me know the fasting, pp sugar levels and hba1c%, dietary pattern and whether you exercise regularly and current treatment. You can join the gym, but excellent sugar control is a must.

It would have been better if you had mentioned the blood glucose readings both fasting and pp as well as hba1c% and bp. When diabetes is in control fasting should be closer to 100 mg. Pp 150 to 160 mg or up to 180 mg and hba1c% <7. Bp should be 130/80 mm hg. As regards eating a few biscuits, let me tell you, it is better to avoid them. At the most 2 can be aeten, the reason is that all biscuits give about 30 plus calories per piece and contain simple carb, hence increasing the blood glucose rapidly. Peanuts rosted ones without salt are good about 30 g per day. Salt intake is not good for a person with high bp. Potato chips, other packaged foods, are harmful, as they contain too much of salt and trans fats. Even if one consumes peanuts those should be brought from home, packed will have salt in them. You have not mentioned the weight, so so bmi can not be calculated. It should be <23 kg/m2. Thanks.

If this is reported first time and already not on treatment. And you are symptomatic -have palpitation, wt loss tremors. We need to rule out thyroiditis versus hyperthyroidism. Hyperthyroidism requires treatment while thyroiditis self recovers. So please get raiu (radioactive iodine uptake) scan 2 and 24 hrs done. If multi nodular goitre, also get 99mtc scan done.

Dear lybrate user with the limited amount of information provided it appears that your wife is hypothyroid. If could had been better if you had provided us with your tsh, ft4 levels in a proper format as some data is missing. Advise - please continue with thyroid hormone replacement as advised as this hormone is now deficient in her body and nothing else other than these tablets can replace it. Hope this solves your query anything more then please feel free to revert.

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. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch personally.

What's are sign/symptoms of thyroids? I have thyroid more than 100, having lots of hair fall, how to prevent hair fall?
Hello it is sign of thyroid disorder to get hair fall, dry skin, weight gain or loss, irritability etc. So, first of all, it's important to control your thyroid illness. Investigate your thyroid level first (serum tsh, t3, t4) first. Also go for other blood test like complete blood count etc. It's better to consult a dermatologist in person to start treatment for hair fall along with thyroid treatment.
