What are the symptoms diabetes and what are the precautions or cure for diabetes.
Increase thirst, increased frequency of urination are some initial symptoms of diabetes but it can vary from being completely asymptomatic to non specific symptoms like weakness, loss of weight, tingling in feet, dry mouth, blurry vision, burning during urination. You need to follow a healthy lifestyle to prevent such metabolic diseases. Type 1 usually occurs at younger age due to insulin deficiency and treated with insulin injections. It can't be cured completely but you can keep it controlled by taking these precautions.

I have high fever doctor has given amoxicillin and paracetamol, still fever persists, along with this can I take dolo 650.

Mr. Lybrate-user, dolo 650 is paracetamol 650 mg. Paracetamol has antipyretic action lasting up to about 6 hours. So it needs to be taken 4 times a day. One can take up to 4 g a day, as an upper limit. But usually that is not required or even recommended. Fever usually lasts 3 to 4 days or some times even longer depending upon the cause. Consume good deal of water, preferably ors (oral rehydration solution), which will keep in keeping well hydrated and weakness can be avoided. Thanks for the question.

I am 57yr old male and I am suffering from hypothyroidism. What should I do? Please help me.
you can take diet for hypothyroidism:- high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread, 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. flax oil, 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, Avoid few foods in hypothroidism i.e. caffeine products tea,coffee, tabcco, alcohol / wine , kale, broccoli, spinach, mustard green, cabbage, turnip, millet, cassava, linseeds, pine nuts, soy products as soy milk, tofu, soybeans, soy souce, also avoid stress. Take Some Relax during work. Proper follow up you can feel better and reduce weight also.

Hypothyroidism slows down metabolism so you need to burn out more calories than you consume to create negative energy balance & lose weight. 1. Be physically active- take stairs instead of lift, walk instead of hiring transport, exercise daily for 1 hr, join aerobic/ dancing/ swimming/ karate classes 2. Take your medication regularly as prescribed by the doctor 3. avoid raw cruciferous vegetables (cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli) 4. Have small frequent meals (6-8) 5. Eat slowly & chew your food well 6. Avoid junk/ processed/ packaged/ canned/ sugary/ fried foods, cold drinks, alcohol, energy drinks, chocolate, ice cream, sweets, glucose, potato, sugar, sabudana 7. Have plenty of whole fruits & vegetables (raw , cooked, boiled) 8. Replace refined grains (maida, white bread, white rice, noodles, biscuit, cake, sewai) with whole grains (atta, dalia, suji, bajra, oats, barley, atta bread, brown rice, jowar) 9. Maintain a regular sleep cycle. Sleep & wake up early. 10. Use less oil in cooking

Lybrate-user, the levels mentioned are too high, shows totally uncontrolled diabetes. If you are on treatment, it is clear the current treatment is not helpful or grossly inadequate. Needs immediate improvement. Plus I see that you are having a bmi of 34.09 kgs/m2, showing grade 1 obesity. This also contributes to increased blood sugar. So there needs to be - efforts to reduce weight, additional treatment and proper diet control and exercise. With this multi pronged approach we will be able to bring situation under control. Thanks for the question.

Suffering with diabetic and suffering with skin problem kindly suggestion to cure or control.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Suffering with diabetic and suffering with skin problem kindly suggestion to cure or control.
Diabetes affects all organs in the body – Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient and doctor should be in constant touch for regular follow up and advice. The common symptoms are:-Both types of diabetes have some of the same tell-tale warning signs. Hunger and fatigue. Your body converts the food you eat into glucose that your cells use for energy. But your cells need insulin to bring the glucose in. If your body doesn't make enough or any insulin, or if your cells resist the insulin your body makes, the glucose can't get into them and you have no energy. This can make you more hungry and tired than usual. Urinating more often and being thirstier. The average person usually has to pee between four and seven times in 24 hours, but people with diabetes may go a lot more. Dry mouth and itchy skin. Because your body is using fluids to make pee, there's less moisture for other things. You could get dehydrated, and your mouth may feel dry. Dry skin can make you itchy. Blurred vision. Changing fluid levels in your body could make the lenses in your eyes swell up. They change shape and lose their ability to focus. 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.

The best natural medicine for thyroid is coriander. Start drinking 10 grams coriander in 150 ml water and drink after boiling it for 15 minutes in morning empty stomach for 3 months regular. Make sure that you are walking 90 minutes every day. Drink four litres water every day but make sure not to drink water after your meals. Give a gap of 90 minutes.
