Gestational diabetes (diabetes detected during pregnancy) is quite common in india. Usually a 75 g glucose is given for doing a oral glucose tolerance test (ogtt), to detect gestational diabetes. Gdm is diagnosed if 2 hour blood sugar is above 140 mg. The recommended management is to start the patient on medical nutrition and help control blood sugar for 2 - 3 weeks if not controlled, start on insulin injections. Oral drugs are not recommended.

Dear lybrateuser, - Your glucose level is high for which lifestyle changes & medication is required - have more of fibre containing foods like vegetables, fruits( avoid banana, mango, cheekoo & grapes as they contain higher quantity of natural sugars, have berries, citrus fruits), whole grains, beans, lentils, pulses, lean meats, a handful of nuts - restrict your portion size, have 5-6 small meals rather than three large meals, do not skip meals, have meals on time - avoid fried, sweet, processed & junk foods - do regular exercise to keep your blood sugar under control - consult a diabetologist for medication & proper management of your condition.

Hi lybrate-user, There are some foods which can negatively impact your diabetes. So, the first thing you need to do is to remove these foods from your diet. 1. Refined sugar - We all know that sugar, until it is in its most natural form, is bad for people suffering from diabetes. When consumed, refined sugar spikes the blood sugar rapidly. Sometimes even the natural form like honey can cause a sudden spike in the blood sugar levels. So, it's better to avoid refined sugar by all means if you are a diabetic. 2. Whole grains - Grains that have gluten in them should be avoided. Gluten is associated with diabetes as its intake can cause leaky gut leading to inflammation which in turn can lead to auto immune diseases. 3. Alcohol - Alcohol consumption is directly related to diabetes. Alcohol not only damages your liver but also attacks the pancreas that produces insulin. Diabetes is linked with consumption of heavy alcohol which is two to three glasses a day. Beer should especially be avoided as it has a lot of carbohydrates. 4. Cow's milk - Just like whole grains, cow milk can trigger the immune system which can lead to inflammation. Milk coming from sheep and goat is not harmful in fact it helps to maintain the blood sugar level. But the conventional cow milk can be dangerous for you if you are suffering from diabetes. 5. GMO foods - GMO foods have the capability to promote diabetes along with causing liver and kidney diseases. Go for products which are labeled as GMO-free. What to eat and do 1. Cinnamon Cinnamon contains a bioactive compound that can help to fight and prevent diabetes. Cinnamon is known to stimulate the insulin activity and thus regulate the blood sugar level. As excess of anything is bad, likewise cinnamon if taken in excess can increase the risk of liver damage due to a compound called coumarin present in it. The true cinnamon, not the one buy from shops (Cassia cinnamon) is safer to have. 2. Aloe vera - Aloe vera is easily found in Indian households. Though it's bitter in taste, but combing it with buttermilk makes it taste better. Usually, aloe vera is used for beauty purposes but as it has anti-inflammatory properties it can heal the wounds. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, it is said to control the blood sugar levels. 3. Vitamin C - Vitamin C is not only good for skin but also for diabetes. Recent studies have shown that consuming approximately 600 mg of Vitamin C daily can improve the blood sugar level significantly. People who have chronic diabetes should consume foods rich in Vitamin C every day. Some foods rich in Vitamin C are amla, orange, tomato and blueberry. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Hello Mr. Lybrate user. It's good that you have controlled diabetes since 7 years But with information provided you have lost significant amount of weight I personally feel it's not due to diabetes it can be due to either poor nutrition or some chronic infectious disease Get your CBC ESR AND CHEST x ray done Till then just start taking D- protein two tea spoon in glass of milk after walking You can contact me once your reports comes.

Dear, Diabetes is often called the silent killer. Diabetes, is a metabolic disease in which sugar does not get metabolized properly in the body. This means that the blood sugar levels continue to be high, threatening the normal functioning of the body. According to Ayurveda There are 20 forms of Diabetes : 4 are due to Vata, 6 result from Pitta, and 10 are caused by Kapha. But Diabetes (MADHUMEHA) is.Mainly kapha dosha disease. Poorly managed diabetes can lead to a host of long-term complications like :- Heart attacks, Strokes, Blindness, Nerve damage, Amputation of Limb.

My mom is severally effected from uric acid. What precautions should be taken to lesseR this acid? What should she avoid to eat?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
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 500mg 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 know t 1 & t 2 a diabatic patient. What test to be done .hbA1c actual parameters for healthy life.

How to know t 1 & t 2 a diabatic patient. What test to be done .hbA1c actual parameters for healthy life.
When GAD-65 or islet cell antibodies are present, the decline in insulin production is faster and the person requires insulin earlier than in Type 2. With the increase in weight seen in the general population, people with Type 1 and 1.5 can develop Type 2 diabetes with its classic signs of insulin resistance. Without insulin, patients with type 1 diabetes develop severely elevated blood sugar levels. This leads to increased urine glucose, which in turn leads to excessive loss of fluid and electrolytes in the urine.

I am a upsc aspirant and tends to spend an average 12-15 hours everyday with books. However somewhere I have realized that it has been detrimental as far as my health is concerned. I suffered from hypothyroidism for past 1 year however the levels are dropped down to 2 while being on medications. Apart from this, I still tend to feel a kind of fatigue, weariness, courtesy of which I even suffer inconsistent sleep cycles. There have been times when despite of sleeping for a healthy 8 hour time, I still feel tired all through. I've even gained a substantial 8.5 kgs in last 1.5 years. Kindly suggest a balanced diet alongside some multivitamin tablets, which may play a helping hand in my hitherto condition.

Hypothyroidism brings together constellation of metabolic disturbances in the body such as anemia & neuresthinia, apart from thisother features such as psychosomatic changes akin mild depression, weight gain ,low drive, fatiguability ,weariness, palpitation, pain and tiredness in body and legs, nightly cramp like pains in legs, constipation,peripheral neuropathy etc, my opinion holds that there are no dietary changes which may be of actual help, in some cases alkaline diet consisting of high omega fatty acids and other antioxidants may help, this largely comprises of walnuts ,almonds, flax seed, ample ater intake & rationing tea /coffee/ alcohal or tobacco intake, certain blood tests such as CBC, serum iron studies, LFT, pp/fasting blood sugar levels & lipids levels will give physician hint to your overall health, sometimes optimum control on TSH levels achieved through regular dosages of thyronorm or eltroxin for more than 6 months to 12 months will further alleviate some of the symptomatic irregularities which you have mentioned, thus maintain patience with sustained treatment, get test done, take dietary changes as advised and if required get in touch with a qualified doctor .hope this was useful. Good luck.

Recently I have diagnosed with hypothyroidism. My TSH level is 5.12. I am a PhD student in Electronics Engineering. I have a lot of exams to crack in near future. But I heard that with hypothyroidism the memory efficiency will decrease. So is it at all possible for a guy with hypothyroidism to score a good result in competitive exams. My dream is to be a scientist. But I have never heard of a scientist with hypothyroidism. So is it possible for a guy with hypothyroidism.

Nothing is impossible if you put your heart to it. Work hard and focus on your studies. Also, take your medicines at proper time. If you feel like, your memory power is lacking or you cannot concentrate, then Take Brahmi 3X 3 pills once in a day for 1 month.
