Mr. Lybrate-user s r k, to suggest specific diet I need to know some more details like fasting and pp sugar levels, hba1c%, dietary pattern, extent of daily exercise and drugs with dosage. Plus your tsh value (15.3 milli units/ml) is also high, this needs to be brought down to around 3 to 4 milli units / ml when you are on treatment for hypothyroid. As a rule a person with diabetes should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries. Also should refrain from alcohol and smoking. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits about 100 g a day. Total calories to be taken should match your body weight, exercise level and sugar levels. Plus you should take 4 to 5 meals in a day, with each being smaller in quantity so that there is no excess glucose rise.

Say some tips to be healthy .I am so much thin. How can I became healthy.and how can I gain weight.
Eat foods that are rich in calories like pulses, cereals, meat, bread, rice, dry fruits, and nuts. You can also follow by adding vegetables like French beans, broccoli, Chinese cabbage, carrots, lettuce, spinach, asparagus, pumpkins, and eggplants to your diet. Add a healthy portion of red meat to your diet too if you are non vegetarian. But keep in mind not to overdo it. The aim is to add weight, not cholesterol! You can even add olive oil in generous quantities to your salads. Another way to add calories to your diet is by increasing the consumption of dairy products. Don't cut back on the fat content in your milk. Do not ask for low-fat curd, paneer, cheese, at the store. Make sure you consume a full calorie dairy product. DIET CHART TO GAIN WEIGHT - Breakfast: • One, big glass of orange juice or banana shake • A bowl of oatmeal to which dried nuts like almonds, walnuts and raisins are added—using skimmed or low-fat milk and some sugar • 2-3 whole eggs, scrambled or boiled if non- vegetarian • 2-3 slices of multi-grain bread coated with a bit of butter Pre-Lunch/Mid-day Snack: A bowl of yogurt made from low-fat milk Or A few granola bars that are fortified with raisins and sesame seeds Or Whole fruits like apples or chiku or mango Lunch: • At least one form of animal meat like chicken or meat, i.e. One to two servings.(if non- vegetarian) • 4-5 rotis made from whole wheat or multi-grain flour, smeared slightly with ghee. • A big bowl of dal • A cup full of boiled rice • If eating meats is a problem, supplement it with cottage cheese made from tofu or low-fat milk Early Evening Snack: The better choice is a glass of low-fat milk to which an energy-inducing mix has been added. You can choose from a variety of malted mixtures. Try to add more of the malted mix rather than using synthetic sugar. You can use a few high-fiber biscuits or cookies to dip and munch upon. Dinner Options for Gaining Weight Dinner needs some planning since you need to end your day on a calorie high. You should combine at least one type of green vegetable along with a dal or a serving of chicken or fish with some gravy. It is better to have more of rice for dinner rather than rotis from the perspective of gaining weight. Ensure you ask the person cooking meals to use lentils with higher calorie content. This includes black grams and kidney beans. Options for Post-Dinner Snack • A few bites of dark chocolate with high cocoa content • A smoothie of fruits and yogurt • Fruits like strawberries, apples, mangoes or grapes I hope the above diet chart will help you. We have good medicines in homeopathy to gain weight. For further details, consult us or book an online appointment.

My wife blood test shows her AMH is 0.7, no thyroid issue. Follicles good size. No PCOD or PCOS. My sperm count is 64.4 million. My questions are. 1. How does AMH affects or play's a major role in infertility? 2. Can we increase it? If so how? 3. Is the sperm count OK? What should I do to increase it? 4. My sperm motility rate is 79% out of which progressive motility is 49% (taken at Dec 2016). What food or tablets can I take to increase them? 5. Too much stress on this issue makes me again have issue with ED. What tablets can I take for prolonged erection.

Hi lybrate-user, here is the answer to all your questions: 1. We determine a woman’s level of fertility based on her medical history, age, basal antral follicle count, day 3 follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and anti-mullerian hormone (AMH) level. Collectively these factors give us a complete picture of a woman’s reproductive health; however, AMH testing is the most recent ovarian reserve test and generally considered to be the most reliable. AMH levels are measured by a simple blood test. Because AMH tests measure the protein as it secretes in to ovaries, it is not affected by estrogen and other hormones, and can therefore be tested at any point in the menstrual cycle and even in patients on birth control pills levels. Healthy women under 38 years old typically have AMH levels of 2.0 - 7.0 ng/ml. 2. There are alternative medicine options you can try to improve your ovarian reserve: / Yoga / Acupuncture / DHEA, 25 mg thrice a day. / Vit D3 (Calcipherol), 60000 IU, once a week for 10 weeks 3. Yes, your sperm count is normal. 4. Improving sperm motility through diet can be easy if you exactly know which food are rich of the following important nutrients: / Zinc: Eat foods rich in zinc like seafood, organic liver and lean cuts of red meat, plus nuts and grains. Zinc is a potent antioxidant mineral that aids in sperm quality and motility and is a very important asset in the production of testosterone. / Selenium - Eat foods rich in selenium like organic eggs, brewer's yeast, brazil nuts, garlic and seafood. Selenium is essential in sperm formation and development. Scientific studies have shown how high selenium in the diet is directly related to improved sperm motility because selenium is an mineral antioxidant that is naturally present in the spermatic fluids to protect sperm. It concentrates in the testicles and is lost through seminal fluid through ejaculation. / L-Carnitine - Eat foods rich in L-carnitine like lean cuts of meat, dairy products, artichokes, beet greens, asparagus, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, collard greens, and garlic. L-carnitine is present in seminal fluid and is directly related to sperm count and motility. / Maca - Eat Maca root as a supplement. Maca supports healthy hormonal levels and increases male fertility and sex performance. / Coenzyme Q10 (Ubuquinone) - Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an antioxidant important in mitochondrial performance and found in seminal fluid and seminal plasma. CoQ10 has been found to improve sperm count and motility on asthenozoospermia. / N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC) - NAC reduces oxidative stress caused by free radicals preventing the damaging effects on sperm health. NAC treatment is so effective in improving sperm motility because it increases serum antioxidant capacity and decreased oxidative stress. 5. Here are a few non medicinal ways for ED: / Eat Lots of Carbs: To have a massive erection for a long time, your body needs good amount of nutrients. Loading your body with carbohydrates is one of the best ways to have sex multiple times with your partner. Thus, choose foods which are rich in carbohydrates like pasta and bread. / Zinc is also essential: Consumption of foods rich in zinc will help to produce testosterone, seminal fluid and sperm, which is vital to have a strong and long erection. The best zinc sources are seafood, peas and beans. / Avoid fatty foods: If you want to make your partner go insane, then stay off fatty meals before sex. Fatty foods and excess fat consumption will lower the testosterone level in the body, which will further decrease your libido, and make erection and ejaculation difficult to occur. / Start with foreplay: Most men fail to understand the importance of foreplay. Spending sufficient amount of time with foreplay helps to warm your little shooter before intercourse. Thus, always spend some time in foreplay before thinking about penetration. / Do some exercise: Men who are active tend to have better sex life, because it helps to increase your sex drive, sexual potency, reduces stress and enhances testosterone production in the body. To have a better erection, you can also try penis workout like the famous kegel exercise. / Avoid tight undergarments: If you love tight outfits, then throw them away for the love of good sex life. Wearing tight underwear or tight garments can reduce the blood flow towards the penile tissues, which can hamper your erection. Thus, choose loose or airy undergarments always. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Diabetes - Role of Ayurveda in Treating it!

Diabetes - Role of Ayurveda in Treating it!

Most people dread the prospect of having to deal with diabetes. After all, having any disease is not a nice prospect, let alone a lifestyle disease such as diabetes. For many people who have it, a lifetime of pill taking at different parts of the day is a reality. But what if, other successful forms of treatment were found to be effective? Yes, there is good news for all diabetic patients. Ayurveda – the traditional discipline of Indian medicine, has been successfully treating diabetic patients for centuries.

A lot of the effort to treat a person who has diabetes by using Ayurvedic principles has to do with the kind of food regularly consumed. This should not really come as that much of a surprise as our overall health has a lot more to do with the food that is eaten by a person than is normally thought. While cinnamon is considered to be great to add flavour to food, Chinese cinnamon, also known as cassia, which is sourced from the bark of the cinnamon tree, is a good resource to treat diabetes with.

When it comes to food items that should be avoided by a person who has diabetes, rice tops the list. It is something that should not be consumed in large quantities at all. This is true in spite of it being a staple food in many countries and for many people. Apart from this, eating potato does not help you any way either; so consume it in limited quantities.

It is very important to quit smoking and stop consuming alcohol to a large extent, if a complete withdrawal is not possible. In addition to this, sufficient sleep on a nightly basis is also key to maintaining a unhealthy lifestyleA person with diabetes would do well to make it a habit to practice meditation in a consistent way. Practising yoga and going for regular walks are also highly recommended. As a matter of fact, the activity level of a person should be high throughout the day and not just peak at the time of exercise.

One of the main beliefs of Ayurveda is that an overall healthy state of body needs to be maintained. If the body is not in balance, this will cause various problems in different parts of the body. As long as there is discipline, with Ayurveda, diabetes can be easily beaten! If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.
