You can start ayurvedic treatment for diabetes along with alopathy initially. As your blood sugar level comes down after 1-2 months you can reduce your allopathy medicines dose. Take. Vasant kusumakar ras 1-1 for 3 months. Tablet bgr-34 of aimil pharma 2-2 before meal. Jambvaasav 2spoons twice orally with equal quantity of warm water. All these for 6 months.

Hello Doctor, Can I drink cold (not too much cold) pasteurised milk? What are the pros and cons of this? Thank you.
Cold pasteurised milk does no harm. You can drink it. Actually warm milk is heavy and takes time to digest. but people boil the milk to kill its bacterias in it. If the milk is pasteurized then there is no harm in drinking it, only if you are not sensitive to cold things.

Can anyone tell me some good exercises for pectus carinatum and get rid of it naturally?

MD(EH)/AM/Accupressure

Can anyone tell me some good exercises for pectus carinatum and get rid of it naturally?
Dear lybrateuser, You should do following exercises: Hands are placed behind the head and fingers interlocked. The elbows are pulled back as much as possible and the head and neck needs to remain straight. This posture causes the chest to fill out in front. Bend from the hips, forward and down, to a horizontal position. This position is held for 2-3 seconds. It is very important that the elbows, head, and neck remain straight during the exercise. Strengthening the Chest and Back Muscles Do 25 push-ups each day. Another exercise to strengthen the chest muscles: Lie with your back on the floor and with arms stretched out on each side. Place small weights in each hand. Keeping arms straight, bring them together over the chest. Do this exercise 25 times each Deep Breathing with Breath Holding: Do this exercise in the morning and evening. Stand up straight with the shoulders pulled back. Breathe in as deeply as possible and hold your breath for 10 seconds. Repeat 20 times. Remember: Total exercise time should be no more than 10 minutes. This exercise program will not cure a severe pectus excavatum; however, it will help to correct poor posture, prevent progression of a mild pectus excavatum, make surgical correction easier and help prevent recurrence after bar .

fiber and Weight. The type of carbohydrate in your diet makes a difference when it comes to weight control. Research suggests that people who eat more fiber are less likely to gain weight. Refined grains, such as white rice, cause blood sugar and insulin to rapidly rise, which makes you feel hungry.

Hi, try having warm lemon water with honey every morning. Below tips could help you start your weight-loss journey. 1. Never eat a snack out of a carton or a cover. Always use a cup or a plate to so you know how much you are eating. 2. Have at least one bright colored fruit and one bright colored vegetable a day 3. Take a small snack box to office with almonds, walnuts and other dry fruits to satisfy your cravings 4. Try to have your dinner by 8 so that you are not too hungry and also make healthy choices at dinner. 5. People who eat breakfast have a better success rate at losing weight. 6. Beware of zero trans fat and fat free foods as you might end up eating high sugar and carb containing foods. 7. People who are emotional eaters learn to identify the emotion that makes you eat unhealthy food and try diverting your mind to something else you love 8. If your plates are too big trade them off for a 9 inch plates 9. Replace your weighing scale with a tape measure. 10. Share your weight-loss journey with a family member or friend so that you are accountable to each other. 11. Green tea at least once a day will help you boost your metabolism 12. Sleep helps in repair and regulating your hormones. Sleep atleast 8 hours in a day. 13. Have fruits at least twice a day.

I am 30 years old from last 7 months on words I am gaining the weight, I got marriage on 8 months back, I gained almost 8 kgs for 7 months can you please suggest me for this ?

B.Sc. - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Hi , I empathize with you. As for your query, i'd like to say that the weight gain could be due to various aspects as marriage is a big turning point in a woman's life. There are changes with the way food is cooked to the meal timings which can be different from what you have been following since years. Your body does take time to adjust to the changing scenario. Having said that, it is also important that you take good care of yourself by supplying your body with nutritious food that you enjoy eating.

Can any dietician suggest me a nutritional diet chart. Because of running my chest & width of back is decreasing but the fat of stomach is not decreasing.

Can any dietician suggest me a nutritional diet chart. Because of running my chest & width of back is decreasing but ...
I understand your concern. It is your your hormones which have made you fat and keeping you fat around your tummy area. Unless we make correct diagnosis and and create a diet and lifestyle plan to correct that hormonal abnormalities you will not be able to lose weight for long term. Avoid all junk food and all sweet food. Low fat diet does not work for majority of people. Eat wholesome nutritious food full of fibers, good quality fat like ghee and coconut etc. Don't focus on calories but on nutritional density and diversity. Simultaneously working on exercise and diet will surely help. Best rate to lose weight is 1/2 kg per week. If that happens, it is least likely to go high again in future. Trying to lose weight in very short time will need some form of crash diet. Even if you lose weight doing this kind of crash diet, you will get it all back within no time and all the gain will be mainly fat. Not good for your health. Be gentle and patient with yourself. Demonstrate commitment in your persistent efforts. Make comprehensive change in diet, exercise, sleep and stress in your routine. This is called lifestyle medicine. If you can not do it on your own, find some lifestyle medicine expert who can help you in this over extended period of time. We even do this long distance over phone. Best wishes.
