Please tell me the symptoms of sugar. Also tell me the precautions of sugar. And medicine of sugar.

Please tell me the symptoms of sugar. Also tell me the precautions of sugar. And medicine of sugar.
Hello Sir, By sugar, I presume you mean diabetes. Type-2 diabetes in about 50 percent of people is asymptomatic- that means they do not have any symptoms. It is found out incidentally by doing blood glucose test for some other reason. In about 50 percent, the patients have symptoms like loss of weight, increased hunger and thirst, increased urination, tiredness, skin problems etc. To prevent getting diabetes you need to consume a good healthy and well balanced diet with plenty of vegetables. Avoid/restrict processed food and food made of maida, avoid junk food and deep fried items. Restrict or avoid sweets/chocolate, cakes etc. Take at least 2 fruits everyday. Take adequate quantities of protein-dal/eggs/non-veg. Take normal quantities (at least 1/3 of your plate) of carbohydrates like rice, roti etc. Take milk, buttermilk etc. Do at least 45 min of exercise everyday-running, cycling, swimming etc Do not become overweight or obese. If you have diabetes I would suggest to see a doctor as self-medication is dangerous. I hope this helps you Thank you.

I m thyroid (tsh more now in control) last 4 year my weight is gaining also menses problems.
It is always challenging to lose weight with thyroid disorder. Most people who are fat are made to feel that it is because you lack will power, you are lethargic and a weak person. But that is definitely not true. It is your your hormones which have made you fat and keeping you fat. 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. Most diet fails because they are low calorie and low fat. Instead of correcting metabolism, they make you feel low energy or makes you feel excessively hungry. To achieve weightloss - think long term. Weight loss achieved over short term, always comes back. There is a general approach and a specific approach as per individual patients metabolic profile. Try this general approach (see below) for 4 weeks. If this works then continue. If this is not enough then revert for further assessment and customised approach. With customised lifestyle modification approaches, people over 100-150 kg are also losing weight for long term. 1. Do not eat anything sugary or sweet. Zero sweetness in diet. 2. Eat plenty of salad in lunch and dinner along with other foods. 3. Do not drink any liquid calorie like cola or fruit juices. 4. Go for brisk walks or jogging for 45 minutes every day. Best wishes.

Mr, if one has diabetes mellitus, then treatment with appropriate drugs is necessary for life time. There is no way to control raised blood sugar with out taking any anti - diabetes drugs. Life style changes are required to support the drug treatment. Thanks.

For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Walking for 30 mins a day for at least 5 days in a week is recommended. Medicine will depend upon sugar level.

Hello, controlling of hypothyroidism in turn tsh levels is very important. For conception to occur and pregnancy to be successfully completed tsh has to below 3 milli units. Recommended levels are 1st trimester 0.1 to 2 milli units. 2nd trimester 0.3 to 3 milli units & 3rd trimester 0.3 to 3.5 milli units/l. Even for conception to occur levels have to be below 2 millii units/l. The fluctuations have to be avoided. If you have any doubts please come in a conversation with latest thyroid test details, then I will be able to guide better. Thanks.

Medicine taking is not the solution dear, you must be taking proper medicines under guidance but if you are getting infections frequently than first thing you should get thyroid testing done, and than you may need to hydrate up your body because any symptoms of throat comes with symptoms of nose also dear the symptoms you are getting are due to dryness of the mouth, this is because of lack of mucus in the mouth which is protective layer of our mouth, and is being produced in the mouth by glands which will be helped by good and healthy blood supply to the glands, blood with good blood cells will take oxygen to the gland and gland works, they require oxygen in ample of amount, so if you do not take iron diet on daily basis than this will lead to less of mucus production and hence lead to dryness and thick mucus problem, this thick mucus leads to irritation in mouth hence leads to itching in the mouth, start taking good iron diet on daily basis, and shakes, avoid salty and spicy food.

If TSH is 8.10 mU/L and there is significant weight gain, then it is better to start treatment with thyroxine tablets. It is necessary to bring down TSH value to 3 to 4 mU/L, then only all the symptoms are in check. Plus efforts to control weight will also be fruitful only when TSH is as mentioned above. Thanks.

Hello, I need to know your blood sugar levels to help you. Also mention which insulin you are taking. For leg pains, you should get 25, hydroxy vitamin d levels done. If the levels are low, you would need to take vitamin d supplement. Revert with the asked details for a better help.

Dear lybrate-user, nice to see such an young boy trying to get help for mom. Diabetes and depression can co occur. Both need treatment. Most of the time your diabetes doctor can manage the depression also by counselling and if necessary with antidepressant tablets. Only when your mom is suicidal or not responding to usual dose and treatment, he/she will refer to psychiatrist. Please request her to discuss with the doctor freely about her depression. Alternately you can go in during her consultation and tell the doctor about her depression.
