Dear service user, thank you for writing to lybrate. I understand your concern. Depressed mood, decreased interest in pleasureable activities, sleep disturbance, appetite change, anxiety, negative thoughts, inappropriate guilt and worthlessness are symptoms of depression. For diagnosis of depression, doctor needs your clinical history and examination of your mental state. Stress is also a signifucant factor leading to acidity. Depression is curable. The antidepressant medications and counseling cognitive behaviour therapy are proven effective for this. Kindly consult psychiatrist for this. Wish you good health and rapid recovery. Regards.

As per your history there are very little chances of you being pregnant, as you missed your periods previously also, you may be having some hormonal problem, you should go to some qualified doctor, get your ultrasound done and hormones tested and get treatment accordingly.

Can fingering cause late periods? My periods not come from past 45 days worried like hell.
Hello, Usually fingering doesn't cause delayed menses but it can delay by 3-5 days if due. However 45 days delay, needs to be investigated for hormonal imbalances.

Diet Chart For Diabetes Patient

MBBS, D.P.H
General Physician, Gurgaon
Diet Chart For Diabetes Patient

 

In India 61 million people are victims of diabetes.

Diabetes disease related to metabolic, in which oxidation of carbohydrates and glucose is not fully detected. Diabetes mellitus is a chronic metabolic disorder in which the body fails to convert sugars, starches and other foods into energy. Many of the foods you eat are normally converted into a type of sugar called glucose during digestion. The bloodstream then carries glucose through the body. The hormone, insulin, then turns glucose into quick energy or is stored for futher use. In diabetic people, the body either does not make enough insulin or it cannot use the insulin correctly. This is why too much glucose builds in the bloodstream.

The main reason is irregular meal, mental stress, lack of exercise.
There are two major types of diabetes:

1. Type 1
This is popularly known as juvenile onset diabetes.
Here, the body produces little or no insulin. It occurs most often in childhood or in the teens and could be inherited.
People with this type of diabetes need daily injections of insulin. They must balance their daily intake of food and activities carefully with their insulin shots to stay alive.


2. Type 2
Also known as adult onset diabetes, this occurs around 35 to 40 years. The more common of the two types, it accounts for about 80 per cent of the diabetics.
Here, though the pancreas produce adequate insulin, body cells show reduced sensitivity towards it.
Type 2 diabetes is usually triggered by obesity. The best way to fight it is by weight loss, exercise and dietary control.
Sometimes, oral medication or insulin injections are also needed.

Symptoms of diabetes
    Extreme thirst and hunger
    Frequent urination
    Sores or bruises that heal slowly
    Dry, itchy skin
    Unexplained weight loss
    Unusual tiredness or drowsiness
    Tingling or numbness in the hands or feetsymptoms of diabetes

The role of diet in diabetes
Meal of diabetic patient is depending on calories. Which decides on it s age, weight, gender, height, working etc. Depending on each person s different   different dietary chart is created. We must take special care of time and amount of food in diabetes. Here we are giving diet chart for general diabetes patient.

Diabetes diet chart:
Morning at 6:   teaspoon fenugreek (methi) powder + water. 
Morning at 7: 1 cup sugar free tea + 1-2 mary biscuits.
Morning at 8.30: 1 plate upma or oatmeal + half bowl sprouted grains + 100ml cream-free milk without sugar
Morning at 10.30: 1 small fruit or 1 cup thin and sugar free buttermilk or lemon water
Lunch at 1: 2 roti of mixed flour, 1 bowl rice, 1 bowl pulse, 1 bowl yogurt, half cup soybean or cheese vegetable, half bowl green vegetable, one plate salad
4 pm: 1 cup tea without sugar + 1-2 less sugar biscuits or toast
6 pm: 1 cup soup
8.30 pm: 2 roti of mixed flour, 1 bowl rice, 1 bowl pulse, half bowl green vegetable, one plate salad
10.30 pm: take 1 cup cream -free milk without sugar.
When you feel hungry intake raw vegetables, salad, black tea, soups, thin buttermilk, lemon water.

Avoid it: molasses, sugar, honey, sweets, dry fruits.

Foods you must avoid!

I. Salt: salt is the greatest culprit for diabetics. You get enough salt from vegetables in inorganic form, so reduce the intake of inorganic salt.

II. Sugar: sucrose, a table sugar, provides nothing but calories and carbohydrates. Also, you need calcium to digest sucrose. Insufficient sucrose intake might lead to calcium being leached off the bones. Substitute sucrose with natural sugar, like honey, jaggery (gur), etc.

III. Fat: excessive fat intake is definitely not a good habit. Try and exclude fried items from your diet totally. But, remember, you must have a small quantity of oil to absorb fat-soluble vitamins, especially vitamin e.

IV. For non-vegetarians
Try and stop the intake of red meat completely. Try to go in for a vegetarian diet. If you cannot, decrease the consumption of eggs and poultry.
You can, however, eat lean fish two to three times a week.

V. Whole milk and products

Try to switch to low fat milk and its products like yogurt (curd).

Replace high fat cheese with low fat cottage cheese.

VI. Tea and coffee

Do not have than two cups of the conventional tea or decaffeinated coffee every day.

Try to switch to herbal teas.

VII. White flour and its products

Replace these with whole grains, wholewheat or soya breads and unpolished rice.

VIII. Foods with a high glycemic index

Avoid white rice, potatoes, carrots, breads and banana -- they increase the blood-sugar levels. 

Advice for diabetes patient:
    35-40 minute faster walk every day.
    Diabetic person should eat food between times intervals like take breakfast in morning, lunch, some snakes and dinner.
    Avoid oily food.
    Intake more fiber foods in meals. It increases glucose level gradually in blood and keeps control.
    Do not take fast and also don t go much party.
    Diabetic person should eat food slowly.
    
 Calorific requirement:
 
 An obese middle aged or elderly patient with mild diabetes 1000 -1600 kcal.
 An elderly diabetic but not over weight  1400 -1800 kcal.
 A young active diabetic  1800 -3000 kcal.
 Daily intake of carbohydrate: 1/10th of total calories approximately  180gm.
 Daily intake of protein: 60gm to 110gm.
 Daily intake of fat: 50gm to 150gm.

Super Fact of the Day: Laughing can help you lose about 300 calories!
All of us know that laughing is good for one’s health. But laughing 100 times has been found to equal 15 minutes of exercise on a stationary cycle or 10 minutes on a rowing machine. So, instead of pedalling quickly for rapid burning of body fat, simply laugh.

My stomach size is abruptly increase n I have also irregular brown discharge ?what should I do?
Hello- Irregular and sudden increase in stomach size in females along with discharge problems denotes swelling of underlying uterus. If swelling subside the stomach will come to its normal position. These symptoms arise due to excessive spicy and fast food intake, late night workouts and using pain killers during menses. Avoid these factors, massage abdomen with sesame oil in clockwise manner and start consuming turmeric milk in the breakfast, your problem will be solved.
