You can pull try manually pulling out the nipple with thumb and forefinger. There is another technique called syringing which will also help you pull out the retracted nipple.

Weight gain is from increased food intake especially after delivery and lack of exercise as people tend not to do any work after delivery. Due to false belief and elders out dated practices. Check your tsh and send report to me privately.

If he is bottle fed, you stop feeding from bottle and instead, feed from a cup or glass. No bottle for any fluids. He will be ok.

Your baby's weight seems normal for age (10 Kgs) in spite of recurrent diarrhoea. Why was he put on soya milk- if it was because of a secondary lactose intolerance during an episode of diarrhoea, then you need to consider stopping it. Finally you have not mentioned the consistency of the stools, (semi solid or pasty stools 3 or 4 times is quite normal).

Diabetes - How Proper Nutrition Can Help You Combat It?

Diabetes - How Proper Nutrition Can Help You Combat It?

There are many myths about diabetes, especially related to what you can eat and what you can’t. Lots of people think that diabetics shouldn’t eat sweets at all. This is not true. Similarly, all carbs and fats are not bad. A high protein diet is also not required and there are no special diabetic meals. So, what should you as a diabetic, eat to combat diabetes? Read on to find out:

  1. Low glycemic index foods: Complex carbs are best for you as they limit the amount of sugar released into your blood stream and are digested more slowly and prevent your body from releasing too much insulin. These are also called low GI foods as well as slow-release carbs and are also high in fibre. Processed carbs like white bread, pasta, and rice, as well as sodas, packaged meals, and snacks must be junked. These are all called high glycemic index (GI) foods and spike your blood sugar.
  2. Manage sugar wisely: Diabetes doesn’t mean that you can’t eat sugar or desserts. It means you have to be smart with sugar, like
    • Take smaller servings of your favourite desserts as they are best eaten in moderation.
    • Reduce the sugar in your diet slowly rather than at once. This will give your taste buds some time to adjust, reducing sugar cravings.
    • If you want to eat dessert, hold back on carbs in a meal. Balance out meals so that you don’t eat too many carb-heavy foods.
    • Add some healthy fat to your diet, as it slows down the digestive process, which means that your blood sugar levels don’t spike as quickly.
  3. Eat sweets along with a meal and not alone: Sweets eaten alone can spike your blood sugar levels a lot.
  4. Don’t drink alcohol: Alcohol is full of calories and carbs and cocktails are loaded with sugar. Alcohol can interfere with diabetes medication and insulin, as well.
  5. Avoid junk, soft drinks, soda and juices: They are all packed with sugar.
  6. Avoid processed or packaged foods: These are loaded with hidden sugars. Eat food cooked at home.
  7. Remember high protein diets are not always good: Studies have shown that if you eat too much protein, especially animal protein, you may become insulin resistant. A healthy diet for diabetics includes protein, carbohydrates, and fats for the body to function properly.
  8. Eat more of these
    • Healthy fats found in raw nuts, olive oil, fish oils, and flax seeds.
    • Also eat more fruits and vegetables. Avoid juices.
    • Eat more high fibre cereals.
  9. And avoid foods like
    • Trans fats which means all deep-fried foods
    • Fast foods, especially cakes, pastries, and chips
    • Red meat

Remember, your overall eating patterns are very important. It’s also important to eat at regular intervals and avoid missing meals. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dietitian-nutritionist.

My 5-year-old daughter drinks water in large quantities, she urinates too much, she feels very thirsty. She was examined for sugar it was 110 without food. And 130 after food. I am very worried about her. Show me what I can do?

Too much urination could be due to many problems other than diabetes. The blood glucose you mentioned do not indicate diabetes. You will have to visit pediatric endocrinologist for further evaluation.

Hello Doctors, My son born on 10-APR-2016, now he is with 2 months 4 days with weight of around 4 kg 50 gms. My question here is that, he used cry lot in night even after feeding and also we used to follow the feeding as every 2 to 3 hrs gab even if he is sleeping then we used to make him get up and try to feed. Is that correct way or we need to wait his wake up by his own or based on crying? And please suggest the process of feeding throughout the day like need to continue like 2 to 3 hrs gap or not? And we used to feed him mostly with SIMILAC advance 1 formula milk since my wife is not having enough breast milk? Suggest this also.

Similac is fine. By enlarge you are doing great. 2-3 hourly feeds are better as newborns don't have much energy reserve in first initial months of life (lack of brown fat. Which requires frequent feeds. I would insist on keep trying for breast feeds as there is nothing superior then breast milk as it is human specific, and baby specific. High immunity provider and iincreases bonding with mom. Secondly, well --> day time more sleep and night time more cry is a normal behavior of a newly born, that's fine. It's not a disease per se.
