About Infertility. My wife is 34yrs. Our marriage is 10yrs old. We tried for IVF. Putting the embryo inside was unsuccessful. There was block in the tube. Is the block curable? Is there any medicines for that? Is there any other solution for infertility?

Block treatment is very difficult and carries risk like ectopic pregnancy. Ivf is much easier than this. In one cycle of ivf chance of success is 30-50%. So pls don't lose hope.

Lifestyle Changes to Prevent Diabetes

Lifestyle Changes to Prevent Diabetes

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder that results in high blood sugar levels in the body. It basically means that the body is either insensitive to insulin or the insulin production levels in the body go down. The various symptoms of diabetes are blurred vision, weight loss and hunger.

Some other symptoms of diabetes are:

  1. Excessive urine output
  2. Wounds that take time to heal
  3. Yeast infections
  4. You may experience fatigue on a regular basis
  5. Frequent Mood Changes

Diabetes is also known as a Lifestyle disease. From the food you eat to the amount of activity, they are all connected to diabetes prevention. The various modifications that you may carry out to prevent diabetes are:

  1. Exercise: You should exercise on a regular basis as it increases your overall wellbeing. It helps you to lose weight and allows you to maintain optimal blood sugar levels. It can also improve your body's sensitivity to insulin to prevent blood sugar problems. Exercise helps in increasing endorphin levels in the body which are responsible for keeping you happy and satiated, thereby avoiding depression and over-eating.
  2. Eat more whole grains: Unlike simple carbohydrates, whole grains are complex carbohydrates that raise your blood sugar steadily instead of spiking it suddenly. Avoid refined grains as most of the important nutrients are stripped from refined grains. A Well-balanced diet with adequate amounts of PUFA/MUFA help in increasing the insulin sensitivity, reducing cholesterol and heart problems, etc.
  3. Eat a lot of fiber: If you have type 2 diabetes, you should be, including high-fiber foods in your diet is a healthy way to control high blood sugar. Fiber does not raise blood glucose levels. Because it is not broken down by the body, the fiber in an apple or a slice of whole grain bread has no effect on blood glucose levels because it isn't digested. The grams of fiber can actually be subtracted from the total grams of carb you are eating if you are using carbohydrate counting for meal planning. Fiber helps you in feeling satiated, thus prevents you from overeating. It also improves your blood sugar levels and decreases your chances of getting affected by heart disease.
  4. Lose weight: You should aim to maintain a healthy weight level as it also decreases the risk of diabetes. It also helps in improving your cardiovascular health. Follow a regimen, which is based on a balanced diet and moderate amount of exercise. Losing weight is the best way to keep diabetes away. Weight is something that we can keep under control. The waist size of men and women should not be more than 150 cm and 90 cm respectively. Always maintain your ideal body weight as per your BMI (Body Mass Index). Globally, obesity is one of the leading causes of diabetes.
  5. Avoid sugary drinks: With ten teaspoons of sugar in every 12-ounce can or bottle, sweet drinks can send your blood sugar soaring and boost your risk for weight gain, high blood pressure, stroke, and heart disease. One sugary drink a day adds 150 empty calories and 40 to 50 grams of blood-sugar-raising carbohydrates to your diet, and can lead to a weight gain of 15 pounds per year. Switching to healthier drinks can save hundreds of calories and a lot of carbohydrates.
  6. Avoid Stress: When you are stressed, your blood sugar levels rise. Stress hormones like epinephrine and cortisol kick in since one of their major functions is to raise blood sugar to help boost energy when it's needed most. You can't fight danger when your blood sugar is low, so it rises to help meet the challenge. Both physical and emotional stress can prompt an increase in these hormones, resulting in an increase in blood sugars and diabetes. Ensuring a stress-free life is very important if you want to stay away from diabetes. Avoid stress by going out for garden-walks, indulging in social causes/activities, yoga, meditation, etc. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

How brain gets effected due to hypoglycaemia? Is there any test to detect insulin overdose as cause of hypoglycaemia? Is the effect to brain fatal?Please tell.

How brain gets effected due to hypoglycaemia? Is there any test to detect insulin overdose as cause of hypoglycaemia?...
Dear lybrate-user, low sugar or hypoglycemia is defined as blood sugar less than 72 mg% it is mainly diagnosed based on symptoms of low sugar. Brain use glucose only as it's food so when sugar goes low brain definitely feels hurt! palpitation, shakiness of hands, sweating and giddiness or sleepiness followed by coma or unconsciousness is a sequence of symptoms seen with progressive low sugar. We routinely never ask for serum insulin levels to diagnose hypoglycemia. Hope this helps you.

What medicine we have to take for sugar and blood pressure and what vegetables we have to eat.

What medicine we have to take for sugar and blood pressure and what vegetables we have to eat.
Mr. Lybrate-user hussain, treatment for diabetes depends on severity of blood sugar level & type of diabetes. Similarly treatment for high bp is also decided on the basis of severity and presence of other conditions. So to decide on treament one needs to know fasting, pp sugar levels, hba1c%. Plus dietary pattern and extent of exercise done daily. You can eat all green leafy vegetables, & salads like palak, methi, tomato, cabbage, cauliflower, cucumber, capsicum etc.

I have been recently diagnosed with diabetes. I have ED problem, my blood sugar in under control but my heart beat increases suddenly when I eat tobacco. I have been consuming tobacco since 14 years. Do you think I have heart problem? What line of treatment should I undergo?

Mr. Lybrate-user, to say diabetes is under control - fasting should be closer to 100 mg, pp should be 150 to 160 mg and hba1c<6.8. If you have maintained this then it is good. If not then that is the main contributor for ed. Secondly you have to completely stop tobacco, there is no alternative. Because nicotine is harmful to coronary arteries as well as other blood vessels especially in diabetes.

Mr. lybrate-user, Usually those who follow Ayurvedic medicine tend to say that taking curds is not good particularly at night time. We do not think like that. It is good at any time of the day, provides a good source of proteins and also is probiotic. Even milk at night is also equally good. Thanks.

Hi, Lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. A diabetic person can eat walnuts and other dry fruits too. But quantity has to be very limited. About 4 to 5 kernels of walnut, 5 almonds per day. Others dry fruits like cashews should be 2 to 3 pieces. Resins also very limited quantity. Thanks.

Herbal tea with ginger is beneficial for thyroid functioning. In fact, beverages including coffee, tea, carbonated drinks and alcohols should be avoided by patients afflicted with thyroid disorders. In its place herbal tea may be an alternative option. Application of watercress's paste on the enlarged neck is also an effective remedy.
