I am 68 years old male my blood sugar is 160 fasting. Lam taking xila- m its okay or not ?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
It is not as easy 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) 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. For sugar 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 privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch.

Is sprouts and soy diet good for patient who is having hypothyroidism ?

Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
Is sprouts and soy diet good for patient who is having hypothyroidism ?
No. Cruciferous vegetables, brussel sprouts and soy are know goitrogens. They interfere with iodine absorption, iodine is a raw material for thyroid hormone production. So ideally yes this should be avoided especially by hypothyroid patients. But due to nutritional benefits of some of the vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, etc they can be consumed in small quantity. In autoimmune disorder mechanism is different.

I want to know that if a person have diabetes sugar then one can eat popcorn and corn?
Corn is a very rich source of starch (carbohydrate) starches raise the level of blood sugar. So it is advisable not to eat corn if diabetic. Once in a while it can come as a treat.

Yes, you may have fresh, home-made pomegranate juice without adding any sugar. It will not raise your blood sugar level too much. But whether that alone will improve your sperm count, I don't know. By the way, what is the cause for your" low sperm count" at 27 years age?

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in salt, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise. Get your S creatinine level done. As medicine will depend upon your creatinine report.

I am a upsc aspirant and tends to spend an average 12-15 hours everyday with books. However somewhere I have realized that it has been detrimental as far as my health is concerned. I suffered from hypothyroidism for past 1 year however the levels are dropped down to 2 while being on medications. Apart from this, I still tend to feel a kind of fatigue, weariness, courtesy of which I even suffer inconsistent sleep cycles. There have been times when despite of sleeping for a healthy 8 hour time, I still feel tired all through. I've even gained a substantial 8.5 kgs in last 1.5 years. Kindly suggest a balanced diet alongside some multivitamin tablets, which may play a helping hand in my hitherto condition.

Hypothyroidism brings together constellation of metabolic disturbances in the body such as anemia & neuresthinia, apart from thisother features such as psychosomatic changes akin mild depression, weight gain ,low drive, fatiguability ,weariness, palpitation, pain and tiredness in body and legs, nightly cramp like pains in legs, constipation,peripheral neuropathy etc, my opinion holds that there are no dietary changes which may be of actual help, in some cases alkaline diet consisting of high omega fatty acids and other antioxidants may help, this largely comprises of walnuts ,almonds, flax seed, ample ater intake & rationing tea /coffee/ alcohal or tobacco intake, certain blood tests such as CBC, serum iron studies, LFT, pp/fasting blood sugar levels & lipids levels will give physician hint to your overall health, sometimes optimum control on TSH levels achieved through regular dosages of thyronorm or eltroxin for more than 6 months to 12 months will further alleviate some of the symptomatic irregularities which you have mentioned, thus maintain patience with sustained treatment, get test done, take dietary changes as advised and if required get in touch with a qualified doctor .hope this was useful. Good luck.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus can only be controlled by appropriate medicines, proper diet (restricted diet) and regular exercise. If blood sugar is not kept in control (fasting closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <6.8.), then there is a definite possibility of serious long term complications in relation to eyes (retina), kidney, lower limbs, peripheral nerves and heart. Yes there is an increased risk of heart attacks in uncontrolled diabetes patients. Another important thing our blood ph is in the range of 7.33 to 7.45 which is slightly alkaline. Our blood always remains in this range. There no blood acidity.

HEALTH TIPS FOR THYROID PATIENTS

M.B.S.(HOMEO), MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Visakhapatnam
HEALTH TIPS FOR THYROID PATIENTS
If you have an under active thyroid gland, avoid consuming large quantities of goitrogens. These are substances that can suppress the thyroid gland if consumed in very large quantities. Foods rich in goitrogens include raw vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower and brussels sprouts; as well as soy, millet, peanuts and corn. Cooking these foods is advisable and inactivates the majority of goitrogens.

Mr. Lybrate-user, first thing you should do is get his retina examined right away. Because diabetes affects retina leading to even blindness. So aprt from achieving strict blood sugar control (fasting closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg /100 ml and hba1c%<7), pupil dilated eye examination to see if his retina is affected should be done immediately. Carrot juice per say is not bad, but for person with diabetes it can give a lot of sugar. So a small quantity (1/2 cup/ day). That is fine, but get his eyes examined a good ophthatlmologist today only. Do not delay. Thanks for the question.
