How can I control lifestyle diseases like blood pressure, cholesterol & diabetes?
Mr. Lybrate-user, as you have stated these are called" lifestyle" diseases, meaning if we adapt a more positive and healthy lifestyle, these can be prevented. A healthy lifestyle means: exercising regularly, (everyday of the week, at least 1 hour), maintaining near normal weight, maintaining a bmi of 23 kgs/m2, refraining from alcohol, smoking, high fat foods, bakery items, pastries, aerated sweetened drinks, red meat, egg yolk etc. Also controlling excess salt intake. This kind of lifestyle is helpful in keeping those conditions mentioned by you.

Hello Lybrate user according to ayurveda, Hypertension is referred to as Rakta Capa Vriddhi and it sees the vitiation of vata and pitta doshas as the main cause. Home Remedy- Mix 1 teaspoon of onion juice with an equal amount of honey. Take once a day for 1 week. Upon noticing improvement, continue for several more days. Treatment- 1-take sarpgandha vati twice a day. 2-yogendra ras. Akik bhasm works very good in case of hypertension. 3-Take pranacharya no tens capsule twice a day Diet-avoid salty diet. Oily food. Lower your stress. Do pranayama early morning.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I have gone through the details given and understand your concern. Her diabetes looks under control, which is excellent. Similarly het hypothyroidism also needs to be controlled effectively. Because if she feels tired or gets fatigued, that could be due to high TSH. On treatment it should be < 3 mU/L. Then only all the symptoms related to hypothyroidism are in check. So my suggestion please check her TSH, if it is still above the recommended level then you will have to increase the dose by another 12.5 to 25 mcg per day. Thyroxine should be taken early morning on empty stomach and nothing else should taken for next 1 to 1 and half hour. This has to be strictly adhered to. You will have to motivate her to get up and walk initially at home, in front of the house and later in a near by park. Daily walking for about 30 to 45 minutes will make her feel fresh. She is already on enough medications. Thanks.

By now you must have started treatment with thyroxine tablets in dosage as advised by your doctor. Foods to be avoided in hypothyroidism are soya beans, corn, canola, saffllower, flax seed & canola oil, cauliflower, cabbage, tapioca, mustard, peanuts, rapseeds, turnip, sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts, eggs red meat, pears, strawberries, peaches etc. You should take iodised salt, sea foods, salt water fish, celtic sea salt, whole unrefined grains, dairy products, garlic & onions.

You need to have diet plan based on your bmi & activities. Whatever we eat is metabolised by the body for the energy needed to do daily work and the excess is stored as fat. Abdomen is the first place to gain weight and last to disappear. In brief, weight reduction can be achieved only by reducing the intake of food 1/3 of what you take now. And by appropriate exercise plans for each part like belly, thighs, legs / chest etc. To burn off fat. Some tips 1) drink three or four cups of water whenever you feel hungry and just before eating food 2) take boiled or raw vegetable like cucumber, carrot etc. As half of your diet. Then take 1/2 of your total diet as sprouted pulses / proteinaceous food like roti, cooked pulses and remaining with rice or other carbohydrates. Oil or ghee etc. Should be just bare minimum. And do aerobic exercises, running, jogging or at least walking briskly 3-5 kms and swimming if possible, and in a gym if feasible. The most important is to burn off the energy intake by exercises. There is no short cut or medicines without exercise & dieting to take just as mush food as needed for your activities. The food we eat is utilised for our energy needs and the remaining will be stored as fat which leads to obesity. It is better to do some tests.

Although it is good that you have started regular walks, you need to start on allopathic medicines too. Also, check with your doctor about screening for any early complications of diabetes so that they can be controlled at an early stage. You would need a few blood and urine tests and also an eye checkup.

From last 2 years my sugar level was 130 and now it is 150-160. what medicine should I have? Please help me.
Dear kindly specify whether these are fasting sugar values or post meals. As fasting 150 is very high and if post meals it falls in prediabetic range. Depending on that, tablet metformin would have to be started alongwith exercise and weight reduction.

Ayurveda may suggest Karela juice and methi powder BUT Medical science recommends medication with Metformin and exercise and re check and increase or add other medicines if not controlled. .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.

In human blood plasma, the reference range of uric acid is typically 3.4-7.2 mg/dL (200-430 µmol/L) for men (1 mg/dL=59.48 µmol/L), and 2.4-6.1 mg/dL for women (140-360 µmol/L) As you are normal the swelling can be due to sprain or detailed check up is needed.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. In hypothyroidism you should avoid soy beans, soy containing products. Consu, me more og green leafy vegetables and salads also consume more of fruits. Always use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. No maida. Please see that TSH value is maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L then only you will be free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism. Thanks.
