Eat more vegetables and minimum of rice. Wheat, butter sweets etc. Reduce intake to one third of what you eat now. You can read my article on obesity in health tips column in the site, weight gain is the result of sedentary life and overeating do aerobic exercises, jog, skip and run. Eat only half of what you eat now. Avoid or reduce sweets and butter, ghee and food containing these. You need to check for hypothyroid state. Go to lab and test tsh and send me the report in ask privately option..

Mr. Lybrate-user, if one has family history of diabetes, then chances of getting the disease increase tremendously. However, t2 diabetes is a preventable disease. One can keep it at bay by adapting a modified lifestyle, which means - 1) regular exercise for more than 1 hour a day, 2) taking a balanced and restricted diet, that provide exact calories based on ideal body weight and extent of daily physical activity, 3) avoiding excess of sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, aerated sweetened drinks and pastries. 4) consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits daily. 5) refrain from smoking or tobacco in any form and alcohol. Following this routine will help in keeping diabetes away.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus is a disease due to either insulin deficiency or resistance to its action. (t2 dm). So the solution is to take proper drugs that help in lowering blood sugar by stimulating insulin secretion and those that reduce insulin resistance. Some times insulin injections also are required. The treatment is for lifetime. There is nothing like" change in 1 month" or so. Along with drugs, diet control and exercise also are important.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if someone has diabetes then it is essential to get it treated with appro0riate drugs either oral anti diabetes drugs or insulin. Choice of drugs will depend on the age, type of diabetes and severity of the condition. When diabetes is uncontrolled weight loss does occur. Once disease is well controlled, then patient tends to regain the weight in a few months. Thanks.

I have thyroid problem. How to control it? What all ways we can do to reduce it? What type of diet should I take?
For a hypothyroid condition there is no specific or special diet. It is best advised to have a diet planned as per the thyroid 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 if having insulin resistance. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into lowered metabolism. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.
