Please do not get pregnant when your blood sugar levels are uncontrolled. It's always best to first control them, get pregnant & continue to keep them controlled throughout pregnancy. This way, you will decrease the risks to both you & your baby.

I am facing diabetic problem in 7 month of pregnancy. Will this problem be solve after pregnancy?
Gestational diabetes is generally during pregnancy, in most of the cases the sugar levels come in range after delivery. But there are chances of the diabetes persisting in some cases. So you have to be very careful and lead a very healthy lifestyle throughout your life. 1. Exercise at least 5 times per week 2. Eat whole/unprocessed foods at regular intervals, while being aware of physical hunger/fullness cues 3. Sleep 7-9 hours per night 4. Don’t engage in extreme diets 5. Stay consistent with your habits 6. Incorporate non-exercise physical activity 7. Ignore food advertising You need a diet which comprises of whole grains like jowar, bajra, wheat, brown rice, pulses like moong, musoor, bengal gram, lots of vegetables, fruits, eggs, fish, chicken, paneer, healthy oil, nuts and seeds. You need to eat them in right proportion. Avoid eating sugar and sweets, refined foods like maida, noodles pasta, White rice and products, bread. Drink a lot of water.

Dear lybrate-user it would be best if you avoid sugar in the tea & keep it limited in your diet. The following 5 fruits should be avoided: chikoo, mango, banana, custard apple & grapes. For a detailed diet, would like to know your fasting & pp blood sugar levels. The rest of the fruits can be had in a limited quantity. Papaya can be consumed liberally.

I am happy to read that you are doing yoga regularly" sarvangasana" is a specific aasan for thyroid and you must practise it for at least five minutes every day. Constipation is due to thyroid deficiency, when was the last time you got your thyroid checked? please let me know the result, I want to see scanned copy of the report. Report should not be older than one month. Dizziness while walking can be because of low haemoglobin of low vit d3. Please get blood checked for these two and let me know the result.

High level of uric acid in the blood is gout & Gout is a kind of arthritis. Dietary measures to overcome gout: high intake of vitamin C -1500mg/day extra fluid can help flush uric acid crystal out. Cherry juice help you alleviate pain & inflammation omega 3- fish like salmon,or fatty acids in flax seeds or nuts help reduce inflammation follow a diet low in fat,low in protein & high in carbohydrate foods which can consumed moderately: beans,mushrooms,cauliflower,cabbage,banana,grapes foods to be consumed occasionally : roots & tubers,country beans,custard apple,chicko exercise is a must,and losing 20 kg in 2-3 months is very unhealthy. Slow and steady can help you lose weight

General Physician,
Coblation A low-temperature device for removing tonsils offers surgery with less lingering pain than tissue-burning techniques. It's called Coblation. The device uses radio waves that turn a simple salt solution into a stream of powerfully charged ions. These ions don't get very hot. But they carry so much energy, they cut right through tissues.

What are the symptoms of diabetes melitus & High blood pressure? Please help me. Give suggestion.

What are the symptoms of diabetes melitus & High blood pressure? Please help me. Give suggestion.
Diabetes mellitus most often produces very few recognisable symptoms, hence most people fail to identify that they have diabetes. But when fully grown it may produce following symptoms: excess urination, especially getting up at night to pass urine 2 or 3 times, which disturbs sleep, excess thirst, excess hunger, unexplained weight loss and tiredness. Blood sugar level in such situations shows hyperglycemia. High bp also very rarely causes any recognisable symptoms. Hence, mostly it is found out only on checking at clinic. Occasionally one may feel dizziness. Earlier there was feeling that high bp causes headache and nose bleeds. But this can happen in hypertensive crisis, since these conditions are familial, it better for a person to get blood sugar and bp check up done regularly, particularly after 30 to 40 years. Both these conditions can be prevented by regular exercise, weight maintenance, proper diet. In case of bp salt restriction is very essential. But if one has already developed both these conditions then appropriate drug treatment is a must, in addition to adapting a modified lifestyle.

Janumet contains sitagliptin and metformin. This tablets basically helps to control post meal high sugars. I think you just need to take it regularly. You can continue triglynase 2 as before.

I am a diabetic patient and my last bilirubin is 3.1. Now please tell me what I do?
Mr. Lybrate-user kumar, first and foremost is to control blood sugar effectively. Fasting should be closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% 6.8. Then exercise regularly, reduce deep fried foods, take low fat milk products, avoid organ meats, red meat, fishes can be a good choice. Take low fat milk, more of curds and butter milk. Take fiber rich creals. This will help in reducing bilirubin levels. Plus refrain from alcohol completely.

Gestational diabetes (diabetes detected during pregnancy) is quite common in india. Usually a 75 g glucose is given for doing a oral glucose tolerance test (ogtt), to detect gestational diabetes. Gdm is diagnosed if 2 hour blood sugar is above 140 mg. The recommended management is to start the patient on medical nutrition and help control blood sugar for 2 - 3 weeks if not controlled, start on insulin injections. Oral drugs are not recommended.

If your dad is having diabetes, then mangoes are out of question. Plus the details given by you also show that he is over weight. Excess weight make sugar control more difficult. Hence he has to follow diet restrictions more meticulously. Very occasionally a single slice of mango may be had nothing more.
