Healthy sleep habits can make a big difference in your quality of life. Having healthy sleep habits is often referred to as having good sleep hygiene. Try to keep the following sleep practices on a consistent basis: Stick to a sleep schedule of the same bedtime and wake up time, even on the weekends. This helps to regulate your body's clock and could help you fall asleep and stay asleep for the night. Practice a relaxing bedtime ritual. A relaxing, routine activity right before bedtime conducted away from bright lights helps separate your sleep time from activities that can cause excitement, stress or anxiety which can make it more difficult to fall asleep, get sound and deep sleep or remain asleep. If you have trouble sleeping, avoid naps, especially in the afternoon. Power napping may help you get through the day, but if you find that you can't fall asleep at bedtime, eliminating even short catnaps may help. Exercise daily. Vigorous exercise is best, but even light exercise is better than no activity. Exercise at any time of day, but not at the expense of your sleep. Evaluate your room. Design your sleep environment to establish the conditions you need for sleep. Your bedroom should be cool – between 60 and 67 degrees. Your bedroom should also be free from any noise that can disturb your sleep. Finally, your bedroom should be free from any light. Check your room for noises or other distractions. This includes a bed partner's sleep disruptions such as snoring. Consider using blackout curtains, eye shades, ear plugs, "white noise" machines, humidifiers, fans and other devices. Sleep on a comfortable mattress and pillows. Make sure your mattress is comfortable and supportive. The one you have been using for years may have exceeded its life expectancy – about 9 or 10 years for most good quality mattresses. Have comfortable pillows and make the room attractive and inviting for sleep but also free of allergens that might affect you and objects that might cause you to slip or fall if you have to get up.

I have a border line sugar (fasting 107) and pre-diabetic condition (blood glucose level 6.3). Increeased cholestrol and triglycerides. Increased thryroid, uti 15-20 pus cells and esr 44. Do I need to start medicine for diabetes?

Having diabetes makes high blood pressure and other heart and circulation problems more likely, because diabetes damages arteries and makes them targets for hardening (atherosclerosis). Atherosclerosis can cause high blood pressure, which if not treated, can lead to blood vessel damage, stroke, heart failure, heart attack, or kidney failure. You can consult me in private for detailed treatment which is available in biochemic system of medicine depending upon symptomatically. Eatng lots of garlic. If you cant have it get it homeopathically allium sativum (biochemic) nat phos 30x, avoid all types of fats and red meat.

You are aware that hypothyroidism can only be treated by taking hormone thyroxine in prescribed dosage. Therefore, you will have to continue taking thyroxine tablets, prescribed by your doctor. Please understand there is no cure for this condition. Treatment is for life time. Plus you will have to avoid eating cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli, mustard and soya containing products. Also better to avoid coffee. You can consume other vegetables, onions, garlic, tomato and always use whole grain flour made breads.

type 1 DM is auto immune and insulin dependent. insulin is the only available management. care should be taken that patient does not dehydrate or fast. take small meals every 2 to 3 hrs to avoid hypoglycemia. drink 3 litres of water minimum. avoid bananas, papaya, mango and other such high sugar content fruits. monitor sugar regularly and keep track that fasting sugar should range between 80 to 130. use insulin meticulously and judiciously.

I hope all the investigations are done and diagnosis is proved. Thyroid swelling in children are uncommon and needs to be properly evaluated. Reactive lymphadenopathy if not responding to antibiotics I suggest you to get a repeat fnac of thyroid and lymph nodes.

The reported blood sugar levels are good. Ideally when in control fasting should be around 100 mg and pp between 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<7. Hence there is no need for adding any drug or increasing the dose. Cocentrate on exercise and restricted diet, that should help.

It is lower levels of glucose in blood. And exercise in such patients will tend to increase glucose level in blood again..

My father is suffering from diabetes. What is the common diet for diabetes patient to maintain healthy life style.
Mr. Lybrate-user, a person with diabetes has to take a balanced diet. That should contain complex carbohydrates like whole grain flour made item, proteins from various sources like dairy products, eggs, poultry, fishes and lean meat, (for a vegetarian main sources are milk products, pulses and eggs if allowed) and fats particularly unsaturated and mono unsaturated ones. Avoid trans fats or saturated fats particularly seen in deep fried foods. It is better to use 2 or 3 different types of oils. Specific diet plan has to be based on individual patients weight, height, extent of exercise and blood sugar levels.

Hello. My father is 50 years old he is suffering from diabetics he is having 427 so what food we give and how can we control.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Is he on treatment for diabetes? if so what are the drugs? it appears his present treatment is not adequate. I suggest to shift on basal insulin like injection basalog to begin with 6 units once in the morning, do sugar checkup at home daily and if not at desired level increase insulin by 2 units every alternate day. Preferably with guidance from your doctor. About the food first check his daily caloric need based on ideal body weigh in kgs x 25 calories per day. Ideal body weight is height in centimeters - 100x 0.9 he has to eat only that much per day and walk 1 h every day. Avoid direct sweets, deep fried foods, excess salt and fruits like mango, chikkoos, grapes & banana.

Dear lybrate-user you are not diabetic. Congratulations. Hba1c 5.8 to 6.5 means prediabetic, 5.7 means non-diabetic and > 6.5 means diabetic. Fasting = normal blood sugar = < 100 is normal. You random blood sugar 176 show impaired glucose tolerance. Try to take less sweets. Brisk walking 30 min daily will help you. You can discuss in detail all questions please.

Thyroid is an organ which produces hormones. Hormones are internal substances which are produced by the body. They are produced by the signalling mechanism and the only thing that is required for maintaining proper thyroid hormone level is iodine. As per government guidelines, all salt in india is iodised. This is to ensure that people are never iodine deficient. So the only dietary recommendation is to take iodised salt.

There is no relationship between hypothyroidism and visible veins over the penis and its a normal finding and also can be due to excessive mastubation and no treatment perse to be taken.

Your blood sugar level is high so avoid sweets as more as possible. Take pranacharya diabeto capsule and shilajeet capsule twice a day. Instead of these tablets in my opinion you should go for ayurvedic medicines for sgot & sgpt.

Still you can wait. Do take diabetic diet, do diabetic exercise, increase protein in your diet. Breakfast = one full plate salad then 1-2 chapati without ghee over it. Chew well and eat slowly. Similar lunch and dinner. Dinner should be 2 hour before sleep. Fruits two times noon, evening one hour before meal or two hour after meal. All fruits except mango, banana,grpes, chikoo,leechi and no fruit juices (approx 250 gm /day) green leafy vegetable preffer. More quiry ask on line.
