At 14 years his bp particularly systolic is high. Ideally it should be closer to 105 to 110 and diastolic around 60 to 70 mm. If father has diabetes, then children can get it. But it is a preventable condition. By maintaining a healthy lifestyle one can prevent or postpone it.

How to loose excess weight? How to detect the thyroid in our body is their any per meant solution for this?

How to loose excess weight? How to detect the thyroid in our body is their any per meant solution for this?
Start your day with lemon juice This is one of the best therapies to eliminate belly fat. Pinch some yellow juice into a glass of warm water and add some salt to it. Continue drinking this every morning to boost your metabolism and to get rid of that paunch. Stay off from white rice Replace white rice with various wheat products. Include brown rice, brown bread, wholegrains, oats and quinoa in your diet. Avoid sugary substances Stay away from sweets, sweetened drinks and foods rich in oil. Consuming these foods can increase body fat around various areas of your body like abdomen and thighs. Drink plenty of water If you want to get rid of your belly, then drink sufficient amount of water every day. Drinking water, after regular intervals will help to boost your metabolism and remove toxins from your body. Eat raw garlic Chew two to three cloves of garlic every morning, and drink a glass of lemon water after that. This treatment will double up your weight loss process and make your blood circulation smooth in your body. Avoid non-veg food To eliminate belly fat, it is recommended that one should avoid non-vegetarian food as far as possible. Load up on fruits and vegetables Eat a bowl of fruits daily in the morning and evening. This will fill you up with many antioxidants, minerals and vitamins. Spice up your cooking Use spices like cinnamon, ginger and black pepper in your cooking. These spices are loaded with health benefits. They help to improve your insulin resistance and reduce levels of sugar in your blood. For detecting thyroid you need to do three test- TSH. FT4, FT3.

Dstill ear lybrate-user, it is difficult to give you specific advice without seeing your semen report, but eating more of fresh fruits and vegetables, not having too much coffee or smoking helps. Also keep fit by exercises.

My wife is having infertility problem one of her report says suggestive of non secretory endometrium. What does it means?

MBBS, DGO, MD, Fellowship in Gynae Oncology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Non secretory endometrium refers to a phase of the menstrual cycle before ovulation. The endometrium becomes secretory after ovulation under the influence of progesterone. There are two phases to the endometrium. The first half of the cycle the endometrium grows under the influence of estrogen only= proliferative phase. The second half of the cycle progesterone is added if ovulation occurs= secretory phase. By definition on your report the endometrium was not secretory. In brief: 2nd phase absent.

Hi doctors: my daughter's age is 10 years and she is having type-1 diabetes from last two years. She is completely on external insulin four times a day. Is this disease is curable? if yes then what is the solution. Kindly guide me.

At the moment there is no cure. If you can afford put her on insulin pump. At least she will be relieved of pricks and diabetes will be controlled more effectively. In future there is hope on stem cell therapy, results uptill now are encouraging.

Diabetes cannot be cured. If managed well enough, it can be curtailed to avoid complications such as kidney failure, amputation, blindness and stroke. Preventing or managing diabetes requires clinical interventions as well as lifestyle changes. Medication is only one small part of managing diabetes. The major changes come from self-care activities. There are five essential self-care behaviours that have good outcomes. 1.Diet – Consume a low-fat, high-fibre diet helps. Eat lot of fruits, vegetables (at least 4-5 helping a day) along with whole meal, cereals and lentils 2.Exercise for at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. 3.Medications – Be compliant with the dosages. 4.Testing - Monitoring blood sugar and screening for complications 5.Psychology – Acceptance, coping and problem solving skills.

Diabetes affects all organs in the body ? Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient should be under proper guidance for regular follow up and advice. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose ? SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & lifestyle.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

I am a diabetic, kindly suggest me about the food habit that is beneficial and harmful.
A diabetic person should be consuming a balanced diet which includes carbs, proteins & fats in proper proportion like everyone else. However, certain precautions needed are avoid sweets, direct sugar, deep fried foods, fruits like mangoes, grapes, chikkoos and bananas. Also avoid smoking and alcohol. You should always use whole grain flour, (no maida), millets can be added to the food (bajra, ragi, jowar etc), include soya flour in the diet to provide additional proteins particularly for vegetarians. Fruits like oranges, papaya, pomogranate, apple, pear, guava etc are good. Always eat less quantity at a time. Divide your total daily intake in to 5 portions and consume at a gap of 2 t o 3 hrs. But total intake should not exceed the prescribed amount.

if you take alcohol then you have to stop drinking. you have to check your renal functions by doing appropriate blood investigations. because if your renal functions are not satisfactory then your uric acid will remain high
