Mr. lybrate-user, To increase weight, increased food intake should normally help. But if one wants to build a muscular body and increase weight, then exercising regularly under the guidance of a professional trainer is necessary. Plus total protein and fat intake has to go up. Thanks.

Hi, juvenile-onset diabetes has become commonplace recently owing to our lifestyles. Expose your daughter to different fruits and vegetables, enroll her into some form of physical activity class which she would enjoy and educate her about junk food and help her make better choices with the same. I would be thrilled to help her out too via one of our programs.

First, you should do brisk walking daily for atleast 40 minutes. Second, avoid all starchy and high calorie food. Lastly, some diabetic medicines need to be added to get the hba1c below 7%. Good luck!

you can take tab. thyroxine 100 mg . tab. dolo 500 mg sos for headaache and backache. Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, hair removed by laser therapy.

Hi only treatment is thyroxine tablets as you are taking. It will take some days or weeks to get rid of all symptoms of hypothyroidism. After about 4 to 6 weeks you will have to get thyroid assay (tsh test) done again to see if the dose being taken is adequate or it may have to be increased. Avoid soya and soya containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard and coffee. Increase intake of green vegetables, fruits and use whole grain flour for making rotis and chapatis. Plus exercise regularly.

Mr. lybrate-user, Warm water, lemon with honey is recommended by some as a treatment for reducing weight. As a doctor I am not able to explain how or why it works. Honey is same as either sugar or jaggery, containing sucrose, plus it is having some vitamins and antioxidants. Can be used as a substitute to sugar. Thanks.

Strictly speaking, diabetic should avoid alcohol completely. But if you insist on taking it, ensure that your blood sugars and all other parameters are normal. Then, you may take one 30 ml drink of hard liquor (usually containing around 45% alcohol) per day. However, if you are on Insulin, avoid alcohol.

Causes and Treatment of Gestational Diabetes

MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS

Causes and Treatment of Gestational Diabetes

Gestational diabetes is a form of diabetes where the blood sugar levels of the body increase during pregnancy. When you are expecting, your body is more repellent to insulin so that a larger amount of glucose is manufactured for the baby’s nourishment. However, this excess blood glucose can build up within the body which causes gestational diabetes. This can lead to health problems for both the mother and the baby. At the end of the gestational period i.e. once the baby is delivered, blood sugar reduces to normal.

When are you at a risk for gestational diabetes?

  1. Gestational diabetes can also be hereditary. If a family member or a relative has diabetes, you are more likely to develop gestational diabetes.

  2. If you are overweight, you are more susceptible to developing gestational diabetes.

What causes gestational diabetes?

During pregnancy, the placenta connects your baby to the blood supply. This produces other hormones which reduce the levels of insulin. This increases the level of blood sugar in your blood. As your baby develops, your body manufactures more of such hormones which block your insulin levels leading to gestational diabetes. This usually occurs from the 20th week of your pregnancy.

Complications:

  1. Increase in Birth Weight – Extra glucose crosses through the placenta which instigates the baby’s pancreas to manufacture more insulin. This can make your baby very large. Sometimes, it becomes difficult for the baby to pass through the birth canal during childbirth as a result.

  2. Premature Birth and Respiratory Diseases – High blood sugar may increase the risk of an early labor. It may make the baby due before the 37th week of pregnancy. This also makes the baby more susceptible to respiratory disorders.

  3. High Blood Pressure – Gestational diabetes also raises your risks for high blood pressure. This can be fatal for you as well as your baby’s health.

Treatment:

  1. Follow a healthy eating schedule. Limit the amount of carbohydrates and ensure you have a healthy and balanced meal.

  2. Do light exercises regularly during pregnancy. This helps you to control your blood sugar level. Physical activities which require low levels of energy utilization such as swimming and walking will control your blood sugar level without exerting you too much.

  3. Taking insulin shots and medicine for diabetes will also control your blood sugar levels if you have a pre-existing condition.

Dear friend, many of newly detected diabetics have sugars in range of 500-600 mg%. So you're not the odd man out although it's not good to see such high sugar readings. Please understand. That when sugar touches pancreas, insulin is released which takes sugar into the cell for energy production but with very high sugar pancreas becomes numb and doesn't release insulin in response to food. Under such condition pancreas doesn't respond to oral medications and hence insulin usage for initial one month or so helps immensely. Please follow your doctors advice without anxiety. Insulin is the safest and best drug provided dose is adjusted judiciously and diligently. Hope this helps.

Hypo & hyper glycemia are common problems asscociated with diabetes which might lead to headache. It is very im[ortant to keep blood glucose levels in check. 1. Kindly have small frequent meals at 2-3 hrs intervals 2. Avoid feasting & fasting 3. Exercise daily but not on empty stomach 4. Be physically active all the time 5. Lose some weight. Losing weight will improve your health a lot. 6. Have fibre rich foods like whole fruits, salads, stews, vegetables, seeds, nuts, whole grains (millets, atta, brown rice, dalia, suji), whole legumes (sprouts, rajma, soyabean). 7. Avoid junk/ processed/ ready to eat/ canned/ preserved/ fried/ sugary foods

Looking at the details I suggest you should shift to long acting basal analogue insulin like injection basalog, start with 6 units once a day and increase the dose based on daily blood sugar levels. You will have to do self monitoring of sugar levels. One of the oral medications namely metformin with glimepiride to be continued.

Mr. lybrate-user, Agar khali pet 96 mg blood glucose hai, to normal hi hai. Khana khane ke baad (2 ghante ke baad) blood glucose agar 200 mg se bhi jada aya to diabetes hai. I am giving details of glucose levels to decide whether a person has normal levels. 1) Normal: Fasting :70 to 110 mg/ 100 ml, PP <140 mgm HbA1c% <5.9 2) Pre - diabetes: FBS:108 to 125 mg, PP 141 to 199 mg, HbA1c% 5.9 to 6.4. 3) Diabetes: FBS:126 mg and above, PP 200 mg and above, HbA1c% 6.5 and above. If you have any doubts please come back. Thanks. Another aspect if you are thinking of having a baby then it is essential to get blood glucose properly checked.

For osteoarthritis ayurvedic medicines work very well. You have to continue the treatment for 6months so that there is no relapse. You have to lead a healthy life in terms of food as well as exercise. Do daily yoga and walking for atleast half an hour. Avoid eating sour and chilled food items. Im sure you will be ok.

Hello, You are not in the diabetic range. These blood results show that you are in pre-diabeties range. Ideally, to diagnose if a patient is diabetic or not, we need to repeat the FBG and PPBG a second time atleast one week apart from the first test. So, please get the tests repeated again and also get the HbA1C done (this shows the average blood glucose over the last 3 months). Even if the next test reports come as pre-diabetes or borderline diabetes range, I would advise you to follow lifestyle modifications for 3 months and see. For pre-diabetes the management is lifestyle changes. This means 1) avoid sugary and high calorie food like sweets/bakery items/cakes/pastries etc 2) avoid fatty food 3) eat plenty of vegetables and whole grains and whole grain flour items 4) consume lot fat milk 5) exercise atleast 45 min everyday. Hope this helps you Thank you.
