Is taking eggs in diabetics useful or harmful when my cholesterol level is within limits.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Thanks for the query. For a person with diabetes it very important to first and foremost achieve a strict blood glucose control, with FBG <100 mg, PP 159 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. Then have a very controlled diet that provides calories based on ideal body weight, and extent of exercise. Eggs are a good source of protein and can be taken by a person with diabetes. You can consume the whole egg. There is no need to discard egg yolk. Thanks.

First Question: Honey contains sugar. Therefore drinking water with honey in the morning, adds up to the body's sugar level. It may not be good for health and more so for diabetic persons. Second Question. You know thyroid medicine has to be taken generally on empty stomach. Can we take this medicine along with warm water plus honey plus lemon combination on an empty stomach in the morning.

Internal Medicine Specialist, Indore
Honey has natural sugar so it doesn't cause harm you can't take thyroid medicine with honey or lime it shd be taken at empty stomach.

मैं 63 वर्षीय, 3 वर्ष डायलिसिस करवाने के बाद 2013 में किडनी प्रत्यारोपण करवाया तब से मुझे शूगर की शिकायत है इन्सुलिन लगनी पड़ती है डॉ ने कहा था इन्सुलिन बंद हो जायेगी पर अभी भी मेरी शूगर100- 200 रहती है साथ ही टेबलेट भी लेता हूँ क्या मेरी इंसुलिन से छूट सकती है या आजीवन लगानी पड़ेगी।

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
डॉक्टर होने के नाते हमें अनगिनत बार इस सवाल का सामना करना पड़ता है कि इंसुलिन कब बन्द होगी। यह सवाल आधारित है इस मिथ्या पर की इंसुलिन शरीर को कमज़ोर करता है या इंसुलिन लगने का अर्थ है शुगर की बीमारी में गिरावट। लेकिन इंसुलिन शुगर की सबसे क़ुदरती दावा है क्योंकि आपका शरीर भी शुगर क़ाबू में रखने के लिए इंसुलिन ही बनाता है। अतः इंसुलिन को बंद करने से आप कोई लाभ नहीं पायगे। बल्कि मेरे विचार में आप शुगर की अन्य दवाइयाँ बन्द करके केवल इंसुलिन द्वारा ही शुगर को कंट्रोल करे। आपके अच्छें स्वास्थ्य की कामना करते हुएँ।

I used to take eltroxin25 since march 2015 andf now my thyroid level is good shall I discontinue eltroxin or suggest me any other since after starting im feeling very hungry and my weight has also increased.

Mr. lybrate-user, Hypothyroidism is a hormone deficiency disorder, hence there has to be a constant supplement of that hormone for lifetime. Therefore, treatment will have to go on for lifetime. If one is on treatment, then ideally TSH levels should be maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, to be free from all the symptoms. Weight gain is in fact a common manifestation of hypothyroidism. So check TSH level and if it is higher than above mentioned, then there needs to be an increase in the dosage of thyroxine. Thanks.

Following are the tips to prevent onset/or control diabetes 1-Losing Extra Weight:-The most significant thing which can make a big difference to your health is to lose your extra weight. This will not only lower your blood pressure but also helps lowering your cholesterol too. For woman: waist of 80 cm or more & for man: waist of 90 cm or more are at risk 2- Constant and regular food timings :-the timings at which you have your meals should be set fixed and at regular intervals each day. This will considerably improve your metabolic activity and helps reducing your weight. 3- Split your meals and eating in moderate amount:-Splitting your meals into 3-4 times per day (including snacks)and eating in fair and consistent amount , improves your metabolic rate as the food u take is not concentrated at one time. 4- No long Gaps and skipping of meals:-There should be no long gaps between meals. Never miss out breakfast. 5- No overeating:-Never eat in a bulk on one time .Try to have moderate amount of food each time u eat.

Rather choose a variety of foods including whole grains, fresh vegetables, salads, fruits, low fat dairy products. 9- Take high-fibre and complex carbohydrates:-like oats as they are easily broken down to basic sugars.

Try green tea instead.

I observe pain in my spine when I get up in the morning. My feet also swell during the day. I had got my blood test done some days ago and found that the uric acid level has increased.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
I don't your Uric Acid has any role to play with this. It is possibly and most probably you are suffering from Lumber spondylosis with disc disease. A digital X-ray of your Lumbo Sacral region region (both AP and Lateral Vies) shall help to understand. You need to consult a spinal surgeon or orthopedic surgeon for this. Till then you follow these: 1) - Weight reduction is absolutely essential for you. 2) - Avoid forward bending and carry heavy weight which require forward bending. 3) Posture Corrections - sit with back in erect posture. Avoid back rest of sofa or chair. To view TV better lie down than sitting for long time. 4) Spinal Extension Exercises - like Bridges, and Yogas, videos available in U-tube. Just type 'spinal extension exercises' on google chrome. You shall find lot of it. Hard-bed concept is obsolete for nearly 35 years. Use 60 Density firm foam mattress of reputed make shall be good for you. To avoid denting on mattress rotate mattress every 15 days. Madam Exercise is the the only remedy for treating, cure and prevention of low back pain. No other ways. Medicine is to give relief in acute painful condition. Every day is important in your life for your low back pain. Starting action even from next morning is going to add benefit in your quality of life on the contrary delay is going to cause harm. Please believe it and start from next morning itself. Otherwise you shall invite surgery.

My husband suffered high levels in fsh hormone like 26 is it of problem of infertility.

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
It is also essential for men to have normal levels of the FSH hormone. An imbalance of this hormone in men can contribute to infertility. For men, FSH controls sperm production which is of course essential to fertility. Typically, a man’s follicle-stimulating hormone levels should be between 5 and 15 IU/L. High levels of FSH in a male could indicate that the testicles are not functioning properly, or may have been damaged by some condition. They can also indicate the presence of Klinefelter syndrome, a genetic disorder that causes the presence of too many X chromosomes in the male. So get semen analysis done, and consult with some good infertility specialist.
