You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, for ibs:-you cut out such items as carbonated beverages, vegetables — especially cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower — and raw fruits.Fiber supplements. Taking fiber supplements, such as psyllium (Metamucil) or methylcellulose (Citrucel), with fluids may help control constipation. Fiber obtained from food may cause much more bloating compared with a fiber supplement.

Hello if diabetes is not in proper control, it affects almost every system of the body particularly retina, kidneys, nerves and heart. Alcohol in excess adds to the problems. It gives extra calories without any benefits. Damages liver in turn glucose and fat metabolism. It masks hypoglycemia symptoms causing serious difficulty. Can affect your overall fitness. In long-term liver damage along with chronic complications of diabetes will be very bad.

What are the symptoms of diabetes? Can sidha medical can used for diabetes patient?

BHMS
Homeopath,
What are the symptoms of diabetes? Can sidha medical can used for diabetes patient?
Dear lybrate user, one of the major nutritional substance required for human body is carbohydrate. We take carbohydrate in the form of rice, wheat, sugar etc. The complex molecules of carbohydrate are broken down into simple glucose molecules during digestion & released in the blood stream to be absorbed by the muscle cells. Muscle cells utilise the glucose molecules to release energy by breaking down those glucose molecules. Insulin hormone plays a vital role in the absorption of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells. In abnormal conditions, either due to less production of insulin or due to resistance to insulin, the process of absorption of glucose by the muscles comes to a stand still. The glucose molecules remains in the bloodstream which results in the increase in the blood sugar level. The failure of utilisation of the glucose molecules by the muscle cells results in production of less energy than normal condition. This is externally manifested as the fatigue & tiredness of the patient. This excess amount of blood sugar compels the kidney to function more than normal level in order to excrete the blood sugar molecules through urine. As a result the patient suffers from frequent urination. This abnormal condition is clinically known as diabetes mellitus. Once a patient is diagnosed with diabetes he has to take regular medicine to keep his blood sugar level within normal limits. Take homoeopathic mother tincture gymnema sylvestra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Also you need to walk at least 1 hour daily without any interval. Also you need to take a low carbohydrate rich diet. Avoid rice, sweet dishes, fruits, cold drinks, fast foods, alcoholic beverages, potato etc.

Lybrate-user, diabetes is a lifestyle disorder where balancing your diet along with good physical activity is a must. Eat at regular intervals of 2-3 hrs and practise 15-20 mins of yoga to reduce stress.

Dear, a proper measure for knowing and managing mothers diabetes will be to ensure a hba1c below 6.5%. She is on lot of medications already. Regarding diet, we indians have high carbohydrate diet. You have to closely observe your plate and you can come up with a better diet plan for her. To simplify it, identify the items which are carb rich in your plate and try to compensate the same with protein and fibres, for eg cut down a roti and increase sabji, dal or salad. To have a better control you can do a monthly self glucose monitoring 3 times a day and keep a track of your food with it. Check fasting sugar, sugar one hour prior your lunch and 2 hrs post lunch, and note down the details of your breakfast and lunch items. Modify as per my earlier suggestions and within a week you will see your blood sugar level responding. Best of luck.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Diabetes Management in Ramadan

During Ramadan, diabetics who chose to fast should be educated about how to adjust their medications and be prepared to break the fast if necessary.
During the lunar-based month of Ramadan, Muslims abstain from eating, drinking, smoking, or using oral medications from predawn to sunset.
Followers will typically eat just after sunset and again before dawn.
In general, fasting is not recommended for people with diabetes. The practice increases the risk for both hypoglycemia from lack of food and hyperglycemia resulting from cutting back too far on medication in attempts to avoid hypoglycemia. Hyperglycemia can also occur if patients overeat after sundown.
If the period of fasting is longer and the two meals are eaten close together, this can be tricky.
Islamic law does not require fasting when it would create a physical danger.
Fasting is especially risky for those with type 1 diabetes, for pregnant women, and for children. However, patients with well-controlled type 1 diabetes who use insulin pumps can often accomplish fasting by adjusting their basal infusion rates and monitoring their blood glucose levels frequently.
For patients with type 2 diabetes taking medications other than insulin or sulfonylureas, the risk for hypoglycemia is low. However, because of the prohibition against taking oral medication during daylight hours, patients who usually take metformin 3 times daily should take two-thirds of the dose at the sunset meal and one-third at the predawn meal.
Long-acting sulfonylureas should be avoided.
Once-daily sulfonylureas should be taken at the sunset meal.
For patients taking twice-daily sulfonylureas, the usual dose should be taken at the evening meal and half the usual dose before the predawn meal. One can also skip the predawn dose altogether.
The very short-acting insulin secretagogues repaglinide or nateglinide can be taken before each of the meals.
No adjustments are needed for thiazolidinediones, alpha-glucosidase inhibitors, incretin-based therapies, or bromocriptine.
Basal insulin doses should be reduced by about 30% to 40%. Patients who are on either mixed or intermediate-acting insulins should switch to basal insulin.
The usual dose of rapid-acting insulin should be taken before the sunset meal. The predawn dose of rapid-acting insulin can be cut to half or omitted.
Frequent monitoring is the key. Patients should be advised to break their fast if the blood sugar drops below 70 mg/dL. If it rises above 250 mg/dL ? particularly for patients with type 1 diabetes ? they should also break their fast and take insulin.
Patients should be cautioned against overeating after breaking the fast.
Moderation is the trick. Don't overfill an empty stomach.
Patients should be counseled about avoiding dehydration as much as possible.
Also adjust BP medicines during Ramadan

Dear sir I am suffering from diabetes for the last six months. Please suggest me the best cure to get rid of it.
Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus can only be controlled, there is no cure possible. The treatment has to go on for lifetime. Plus you have to achieve a strict sugar control - fasting closer to 100mg and pp 150 to 160 mg/100ml and hba1c%<6.8. Otherwise you are inviting all the long term serious consequences of diabetes related to every single important vital organ in the body. At your age it could be t1 which needs only insulin injections.
