If you feel hypoglycemia than to have 4 teaspoon sugar immediately with water. Reduced your medicine dose. Increase your small frequent meal in every 2 hour. When you go to bed than to have 1glass tonnes milk with 2 to 4 marie or salty biscuits this will help or prevent coma at night.

I have been diagnosed of a cervical fibroid in an ultrasound report. The report states as follows - There is evidence of well defined hypoechoic lesion measuring 38.3 mm × 26.8 mm seen in cervix. The lesion appeared to be connected with endometrium - s/o? Polyp? Cervical Fibroid. I am 32 years of age and married for 4 years and have been suffering excessively high bleeding with huge clots during my periods since last 2-3 years. My periodical cycle is normal and occurs within 25-28 days. However, because of the excessive bleeding I am suffering a lot. My hemoglobin has been extremely low all these years and in my latest report it is 7.2. This has been making me suffer a lot. I would like to know the various options that I may have including surgery, types of surgery and options other than surgery. I would want the fibroid to dissolve naturally, however I am still open to all options. I have never conceived till date and I also have thyroid and I am taking 100 mg of Thyronorm currently. Please advise. Thanks.

How to prevent diabetes from the age 40 to 60 aged people please say some solution to prevent sugar from aged people.
Mr. Lybrate-user, if one has family history of diabetes, then chances of getting the disease increase tremendously. However, t2 diabetes is a preventable disease. One can keep it at bay by adapting a modified lifestyle, which means - 1) regular exercise for more than 1 hour a day, 2) taking a balanced and restricted diet, that provide exact calories based on ideal body weight and extent of daily physical activity, 3) avoiding excess of sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, aerated sweetened drinks and pastries. 4) consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits daily. 5) refrain from smoking or tobacco in any form and alcohol. Following this routine will help in keeping diabetes away.

Hello Mr. Lybrate-user, first of all I would like to tell you don't be disappointed, there are so many people who are living with diabetes life long but it is under controlled with the help of medicine & diet planning. Had you done your hba1c? it should be in the range of 6-6.5% for good control of diabetes. There are some dietary changes that will help you. Take small & frequent meal. Take more & more green leafy vegetables. Avoid simple sugar & simple carbs in your diet. Avoid table salt in meal. Do not take chips, papad, pickel or any other salty products. Avoid oily/ fried / outside food. Take whole wheat products or fiber rich diet like daliya/ oats/ multigrain flour etc. Do regular walk/ exercise/ swimming/ jogging whatever you like atleast for 30 minutes. Take a consultation with the dietician. One most important thing regarding your kidney & liver, discuss with your treating doctor for lft (liver function test) & kft (kidney function test) test. I think you should go through complete annual/ half yearly health check-up.

I have dull skin post pregnancy. And high thyroid.

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
I have dull skin post pregnancy. And high thyroid.
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, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Tests every 3 to 6 months.i.e. t3,t4,tsh, also do vit.D. and vit. B., s.calcium.

Hi My uric acid is 6.02 .Is it in normal range. Or shall I have to take medication for it.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS

Hi My uric acid is 6.02 .Is it in normal range. Or shall I have to take medication for it.
Normal Uric acid levels are 2.4-6.0 mg/dL (female) and 3.4-7.0 mg/dL (male). The first thing you should do is to eat foods that are high in fiber, This is because fiber rich foods absorb uric acid from the blood. Your kidneys then 'throw' out the excess uric acid. Try to eat Oatmeal, Spinach, cauliflowers and Isabgol in milk if possible.  Please use olive oil to cook your food. Kindly avoid vegetable oils because they become unhealthy when heated twice. This leads to rancid fat in the body. These destroy vitamin E, that in turn controls uric acid levels. Olive oil also curbs uric acid by itself.  Vitamin C chewable tablets taken 500 mg daily lower uric acid levels within 4 to 8 weeks.  Try to stop intake of sweets, cakes and pastries. Saturated fats are bad for you.  Many fruits have got potent anti-oxidant properties, like celery seeds, grapes and tomatoes, and these prevent harmful toxins from attacking your organs - releasing uric acid.

How to avoid having thyroid if you have a tendency to have it? And if you have little thyroid at the starting level how to cure it?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Lybrate-user, if there is family history of hypothyroidism, it may occur in the offspring also. There is no specific method to avoid it from developing. However, using iodinated salt regularly so as to prevent deficiency of iodine leading to development of hypothyroidism, is one method. Secondly it is better to avoid soy beans, soy containing foods, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts and coffee. Plus use whole grain flour for making roti and chapati, avoid maida and products made out of it. Plus use low fat milk products and eggs. Plus exercise regularly to maintain normal weight. If sub clinical hypothyroidism develops then also above measures hold good. Hypothyroidism being a thyroxine deficiency disorder, there is no cure, it can only be controlled when it does occur. If it occurs then treatment is for lifetime. Thanks.

Sir very good evening sir my mom have sugar so please tell me sir what to eating so please tell me sir.

General Physician,
Sir very good evening sir my mom have sugar so please tell me sir what to eating so please tell me sir.
Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult 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 & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance... if you keep in touch personally.
