How much sugar intake is good for regular basis? How to avoid diabetes? Is sugar free is good for non diabetic person?
Sugar free is not good as it has some toxic effects. Daily you can take just enough sugar to feel sweet. Avoid too mush sweet foods or snacks. By avoiding overeating, by exercise you can somewhat prevent diabetes if you are genetically not inclined for diabetes.

Mr. Lybrate-user, the various things you have mentioned are some what inter related but everything can not be predicted as you may be thinking. Various things can cause problem with heart. High cholesterol can cause blocks in the coronary artery which can lead to angina or later myocardial infarction (heart attack). High blood pressure puts extra work load on the heart. Diabetes does affect large blood vessels (coronary artery) and also aids dyslipidemia. Tests like echocardiogram and angiography do help in identifying possible causes leading to heart attacks.

FIBRE:
Processed foods are devoid of natural fibre. On an average women need 35g and men 38 gm of fibre daily to keep their gut healthy. Also fibre binds the excess sugar as well as bad cholesterol from the blood stream and excretes it out. Thus fibre helps in diabetes, cholesterol, acidity, gastritis, GERD, constipation, IBS etc. To get more fibre, one should incorporate sprouts, plenty of fruits and raw veg in the form of salads.

My mom has a sugar and heart disease what she can do for control his sugar and what she can eat.
First thing for your mom is finding a good doctor in your city. Second thing is to seek his advise every 2-3 months. Keep on checking blood sugar every month. Exercise, diet and drugs in that order of importance will keep the sugar and heart disease under control. Diabetes cannot be cured.

Endocrinologist,
How do I reduce the level of glucose and decrease sugar level?
Glucose or sugar both are same. To reduce blood sugar (blood glucose) you have to take specific treatment with either oral anti diabetic drugs or insulin injections. In addition one has to exercise regularly for more than 1 h daily, avoid sweets, direct sugar, deep fried foods and smoking and alcohol. Also take prescribed diet and maintain normal weight.

May be she is having knee Osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis can occur at any time of life but the incidence increases with age. It usually affects people over 40 years of age. There is no cure for osteoarthritis but the progression of the disease can be slowed and pain and disability reduced. Treatment options include: Healthy body weight: Maintaining a healthy body weight will reduce stress on the arthritic joints. Nutritional supplements Supplements such as glucosamine have been reported to relieve the pain of osteoarthritis and halt, or even reverse. So please try to take this supplement once a day. Exercise Exercise can assist with the maintenance of muscle strength and the mobility of arthritic joints. Activity at a level that does not cause pain is not thought to worsen osteoarthritis. Non weight-bearing exercises such as swimming or aqua jogging in a heated pool may be beneficial. Range-of-motion and stretching exercises will help maintain the maximum possible movement in the joint. Stretching will help maintain or restore flexibility to the joint’s muscles and tendons. You can apply cold or heat several times a day to reduce your knee pain. Just remember to cover the cold pack with a towel and keep your heating pad at a low setting to avoid burning your skin. Whether you use heat or cold, remove it after 20 to 30 minutes. If the knee is swollen or sore, the following positions and activities you should avoid until knee pain and swelling resolve: Squatting Kneeling Twisting and pivoting See a Physiotherapist for detail exercises programme and manangement.

I have a thyroid problem my THS is 30 I have a used medicine 50 mg since 1 month can please suggest me what can I do now I feel very laznes body pain etc.

CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
Mr. lybrate-user, Unless hypothyroidism is well controlled with TSH level brought around 3 to 4 mU/L, all the symptoms will not be in check. So you will have to check TSH levels after 6 weeks and if still high, then dose of thyroxine will have to be increased. It I appears that starting dose given is too low. It should have been over 100 mcg. Thanks.

Your hba1c result tells that your sugar levels are not well under control. Please bring it under control with strict diet and regular intake of medicines in adequate dose. Your triglycerides are also very high. So avoid deep oil fried items, coconut gratings and even copra. Go for 1 hr walk everyday either in the morning or evening.

What are sulphonamides? can they be added to the diabetics?

Basic Life Support (B.L.S), MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine, MD - Consultant Physician, MD - Diabetology, MD - General Medicine, ACLS
General Physician,
Sulphonamide are a group of antibiotics. There are many classes of drugs used to treat diabetes, one among them is sulfonylurea. People with 'sulfa' allergy should avoid sulphonamide, but the sulfonylurea on other hand are considered safe according to one study. Good luck!

Do every 3 months hba1c. We have best ayurvedic medicine. Don't rely only on ayurvedic medicine only. If you have more weight (bmi more than 25) go for weight reduction also. And start metformin 500 mg once a day. If you are slim then ( bmi less than 20) take only glimipiride 1 mg once a day.
