You can do exercise that do not involve weight bearing on your legs. You can lie down on an exercise mat and raise your legs in air to do leg exercises like air cycling. It costs you nothing and works out all the parts of body. Swimming is an excellent exercise in this regard.

Why do people with diabetes suffer hypoglycemia when intake is a bit delayed from the routine regular time?

Why do people with diabetes suffer hypoglycemia when intake is a bit delayed from the routine regular time?
Patients with Diabetes are taking medicines for lowering their blood sugar - these medicines have preset time of action- they don't start working when they eat food but they start working when they take medicine. Hence, the action of taking food and medicine has to be synchronised by the patient by his intelligence and guidance. otherwise, the medicine will cause hypoglycaemia.

Mr Manickam, Looking at the details provided your BMI is 28 kg/M2, which means you are over weight, your ideal body weight should be 60 kg, so there is 18 kg extra weight. This is a major contributor for diabetes. You have not mentioned about blood sugar levels, HbA1c% and whether you do any exercise. It is important in the treatment of diabetes apart from taking drugs exercise and restricted diet giving exact calories matching the needs based on Ideal Body Weight, blood sugar level and extent of physical activity. Plus one should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, alcohol, red meat and smoking. If you want any specific guidelines please come in a private conversation with details which I have asked, where I will be able to givve specific advice.

I take insulin twice daily. My sugar level is 450+. Please advise.

BAMS
General Physician,
I take insulin twice daily. My sugar level is 450+. Please advise.
I think you are a juvenile diabetic because of hereditary factor. Otherwise, at the age of 19 you cannot be diabetic with such high sugar levels inspite of taking insulin twice a day.

Hi doctors. How many grams of sugar and carbohydrate can a pridibatic person can eat in a day. Is honey good and safe for pridibatic person? please suggest. Thanx.

Mr. lybrate-user, It is difficult to answer about how many grams of sugar and carbs to be eaten. Basically if one is in a pre-diabetes state, then over all caloric intake has to be restricted to meet the exact requirement based on - Ideal body weight X 25 calories per kg / day. In your case IBW should be around 60 kgs. So 60 X 25 cal /Kg = 1500 calories, that means your total dietary intake should be 1500 cals per day. It best to avoid sugar or jaggery or sweets in total. Honey is also similar to sugar, there is hardly any difference. It is supposed to give some additional anti-oxidents. But only a small quantity should be used. Complex carbs like whole grain products are best. Do not use maida, pasta, bakery items, junk foods, sugary aerated drinks, pastries etc. Avoid deep fried foods and fructose corn syrup containing products and highly processed packaged products. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads and fruits. Daily exercise of at least 1 hour is necessary. Thanks.

What is thyroid report and cbc report?

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
What is thyroid report and cbc report?
Cholesterol level should be measured at least once every five years in everyone over age 20. The screening test that is usually performed is a blood test called a lipid profile. Experts recommend that men ages 35 and older and women ages 45 and older be more frequently screened for lipid disorders. The lipoprotein profile includes: Total cholesetrol LDL (low-density lipoprotein CHOLESETROL also called "bad"CHOLESTETROL HDL (high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, also called "good" cholesterol) TRIGLYCERIDES (fats carried in the BLOOD from the food we eat. Excess calories, alcohol, or sugar in the body are converted into TRIGLYCERIDES and stored in fat cells throughout the body. High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. GARLIC,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines . Cap.

A common treatment is to replace thyroxine with a specific synthetic thyroid hormone (levothyroxine). This hormone is safe and affordable, but determining the right dosage often takes time. Your metabolic rate has to be returned to normal. Raising it too quickly can cause palpitations and make some medical problems like coronary artery disease and atrial fibrillation worse. Symptoms of thyroid hormone excess are: shakiness or tremors palpitations insomnia increased appetite diets rich in soy and high fiber can interfere with levothyroxine absorption. Medications and supplements also can reduce absorption. These include: calcium supplements iron supplements cholestyramine aluminum hydroxide (present in some antacids)
