My grandfather is 52 years he is a sugar patient I need a diet chart for them pls its urgent.
Mr. lybrate-user, To give a specific diet chart lot more details are needed like patients weight, height, blood glucose levels & HbA1c%, extent of daily exercise, present dietary pattern. Without knowing all these details it is difficult to give a diet plan. If you want to have a detailed diet plan then please come in a private conversation with all the above details. In the meantime he should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks, fructose corn syrup containing products, highly processed food products and high fat milk products. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). Thanks.

There is nothing like final stage in diabetes. But diabetes needs to be controlled well. There must be many tests which have been conducted by the doctor. Depending upon the results, and the medicines she is taking, dosage can be changed. Also her kidneys and eyes need to be checked.

Is there any particular way to taking insulin for diabetes. Are there any complications if not taken correctly.

Is there any particular way to taking insulin for diabetes. Are there any complications if not taken correctly.
Mr. Lybrate-user, insulin injections are usually taken with the help of special syringe ment for that. It has very thin needle. The injection has to be taken below the skin, in the subcutaneous layer. (in between skin and muscle). Now a day there are specially designed pens which give correct preset doses, with almost painless prick. The sites also are explained to the patient- like on the abdomen, around the umbilicus, on the lateral (outer) aspect of the thigh and on upper arm. It is always advised to shift the injection site, otherwise there may be local irritation & inflammation. Sometimes local subcutaneous fat may be affected called as lipolysis. But usually problems are very limited, particularly if correct technique is followed. Thanks.

What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello,Hashimoto's disease is also known as chronic lymphatic thyroiditis. It can occur at any age, but it’s most common in middle-aged women. The disease occurs when the body's immune system mistakenly attacks and slowly destroys the thyroid gland and its ability to produce hormones. Some people with mild cases of Hashimoto's disease may have no obvious symptoms. Symptoms include: fatigue depression constipation mild weight gain dry skin dry, thinning hair pale, puffy face heavy and irregular menstruation intolerance to cold enlarged thyroid (goiter) Hashimoto’s disease is an autoimmune disorder.There is no known cure for Hashimoto's disease. Hormone-replacing medication is often used to raise thyroid hormone levels or lower TSH levels.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Walking for 30 mins a day for at least 5 days in a week is recommended. Follow a stress free life. Medicine will depend on blood sugar report.

lybrate-user, TSH 7.38 mU/L, is above the normal limit, it is in the sub-clinical hypothyroidism. Unless there are any specific symptoms related to it, there is no need to take any treatment. Your blood report is fine, sometimes higher values of Hb are seen. Your Lymphcyte count is much higher than normal (25 to 30%) Thanks.

Uric acid is maintained to normal level but homoeopathy. For permanent cure I will like to suggest you homeopathy. The homeopathic medicines are selected after a full individualizing examination and case-analysis, which includes the medical history of the patient, physical and mental constitution etc. For complete cure give detailed history.

I that of taking Purim tablets from Himalaya drugs to cleanse/purify my blood. I have a history of little uric acid as ll. I cannot take too many medicine as I keep travelling. Can anybody prescribe me one single medicine which has various benefit along with my current problems and also I have little low libido. I prefer Ayurveda or homeopathy medicine. I use to take homeopathy medicine for boosting my sexual desires but the doctor never use to share his tonic information. He use to collect 500rs for 30 ml tonic and he use to mix 2-3 variety of tonic in one 30 ml bottle, which actually worked. I had very long duration and enjoyed lot with the medicine. But uric acid use to shoot up by that medicine. I want medicine which can balance my uric acid as ll as maintain my man hood life. Dear, doctors, I am 35 years old guy. Kindly prescribe me a single medicine at least for blood purifying and uric acid, also the dosage and how long should I take for permanent cure. Blood purifying I want to clear the toxins from my body. Thanks and appreciate for the patience that you see to my question .regards :shankar.

Mr. lybrate-user, Since you have belief only on Ayurveda and homeopathy it is good enough. But according to modern science, our blood is never spoiled or has any toxic substances to purify it. This is purely an Ayurvedic concept, the basis of which is difficult to understand. Because if our blood gets affected, as we know, a person can not survive. You also mentioned about some medicine given by the doctor (tonic), which would improve your libido etc. Since he does not disclose what ingredients it contains, how would one know if he has not mixed some modern medicine (allopathic) compounds in it. In modern medicine e there is npo secret, everything is clearly mentioned. To reduce uric acid one has to restrict red meat, organ meat, certain sea foods, and fishes. Avoid alcohol, sweetened aerated drinks. Reduce high fat foods. Thanks.
