I am 53 years old male and diabetic (120- 150 range Post Prondial). Taking tablets. Can I consume beer (one bottle) once or twice in a week?

MD - Consultant Physician
General Physician, Mumbai
Your diabetes is under control. Beer will increase your blood sugar but I do not think consuming it once or twice a week is bad for you as long as it does not exceed that and your diabetes and body weight are okay.

Dear lybrateuser, - Good to know that your blood sugar levels are well controlled with medication - do not change the dose or medicines on your own as it will again alter the blood sugar levels, consult your diabetologist for the same & follow his advise.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. It really excellent to know that you have been able to control blood glucose levels so very well. Please keep it up. That will help you to lead a normal healthy life and will prevent possible long term complications of diabetes. The present lifestyle needs to be followed all through out. You are very young and it is imperative that you maintain this excellent control through out. Thanks.

This if it is first report means you have pre diabetes and with 20% reduction in food intake and daily 30-45 minutes brisk walk it can be controlled for few years but eventually you will require oral drugs after few yrs.

You cut down the blood sugar levels in many ways. The first method is with exercise. Make exercise your habit and do it for at least 30 minutes per day. Yoga meditation aerobics walking cycling jogging dancing etc all includes in the category of exercise. Now with the dietary requirements you need to have a good idea that what all foods are essential to you at your this condition. According to me, I suggest my patients a dietary plan. You can also follow the same. *have dinner as early as possible. *restrict intake of rice preparations for dinner. *include fruits into your diet especially pomegranate dates dry grapes juice. *strict stop smoking and alcohol intake. *follow a regular diet weekly. *restrict intake of non veg daily. *have oats with milk daily once. *have food prepared with millets and wheat. If possible you could also follow some natural remedies. Some of them are *intake of gooseberry juice with turmeric powder after your breakfast. *intake of water boiled with the stem of tinospora cordifolia. (instantly decreases the blood sugar levels) *have cucumber juice in empty stomach. Last not least make up your mind. Build confidence and trust in your own actions that you can completely overcome this diabetes. All the best.

There is no permanent natural treatment for diabetes, those who claim that they can do it, other pathies have no evidence so far ever.

Doctor low amh ka matlab kya hai? Eggs ki quality ka kharab hona ya eggs ki quantity kam hona.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
It means that the quantity of your eggs is low. Quality is more determined by age. The lower your AMH and the higher your FSH, the worse it is supposed to be in terms of fertiliity. FSH fluctuates alot so AMH is thought to be more predictable.

Mr. Lybrate-user, the sugar levels are ok, only after food is high. To control these levels, you need to take appropriate anti diabetic drugs, plus control the diet and exercise daily for at least 1 hour a day, brisk walking is good. Food to be taken is like every one of us, but no sweets, no direct sugar or gur, no deep fried foods, no junk foods and pastries. Also avoid sweetened aerated drinks, high fat milk products, red meat, egg yolk. Fish is good, but not fried one. Consume good deal of green leafy vegetables and salads.
