Doctor, I am suffering from diabetes and due to this my hairs are also falling. It's okay when I eat one apple per day in morning but I am not financially good so give me a suitable and less expensive idea to overcome with this problem.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi. Let me tell you about hairfall. In layman's language, hairfall can be divided into 2 types - temporary hairfall and permanent (which is called as 'Hairloss' rather). In temporary hairfall, hair grows back again from the same hair root, but in case of permanent hairloss, may be because of formation of DHT (Di- Hydro -Testosterone) around hair root it gets choked up, subsequently affects the blood supply to the hair and thus hair root is lost forever. (There are different pattern and types of hairloss, because of different reasons like Alopecia Areata, Telogen Effluvium, Scarring Alopecia, Traction Alopecia, etc.) Causes of hairloss: Many factors are responsible formation of this DHT or male/ female pattern baldness - hereditary, post-illness/ ailment, post-delivery, post- chemotherapy, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalance, insufficient sleep, sudden loss of weight, stress/ tensions/ excessive anger, use of bore water, any other underlying diseases, etc. Need to rule out any causative factor or underlying medical condition. Management: Take diet rich in protein like non-veg., eggs, pulses, legumes, sprouts, nuts (sp. walnut and almonds), iron-rich food like green vegetables, also take flaxseeds, green tea, soyabean, fruits, salads, etc. Take proper 6-9hrs of sound sleep. Give up the habit of smoking and excessive alcohol intake. Avoid junk food and any kind of beverages (tea, coffee, aerated drinks, cold drinks, etc.) Avoid canned/ tinned food or food that contains preservatives (eat fresh ones). Avoid use of hard water to wash the head rather use boiled water for head wash. Avoid use of harsh hair colour, hair treatment like rebonding, straightening, perming, etc. Avoid vigorous exercises or any supplements provided by the gym! Use Rose wood/ any wooden hair comb to brush your hair. Regular exercising is also one of the important point, but should be done under some good, qualified yoga teacher or instructor for proper guidance; it also releases the stress/ tension in the mind and the body and keeps you FIT and YOUNG!! Medication: Take homoeopathic Rx - Schwabe's Wiesbaden 200 & Alfalfa Tonic twice a day for 1 month and revert. Also, use Schwabe's Arnica shampoo and Hair Growth oil regularly as per the condition of your scalp (minimum 3 times a week). After shampooing, use Bakson's Arnica Hair conditioner as well after every head wash. Apart from this, take Follihair tablets (multivitamin) - 1 tab. daily once for 1 month. (N.B.: With the help of homoeopathic medicines, we can only prevent further progress of the hairloss, means it will get arrests in the present condition in case of progressive baldness. But, in case there are areas of baldness which has gone smooth and shiny, you will have to choose an option of Hair Transplant along with theses medications!). Investigations advised: Get your blood tested for (empty stomach) - CBC, S. Iron, S. Folic acid, S. Ferritin, S. Calcium, S. Vitamin D3, S. Vitamin B12. If there is any family history of Thyroid dysfunction, get Thyroid function test done as well.

My mother is diabetic and needs to be injected insulins. Can anyone suggest someone who could come home and inject her. As I tried but it turns out to be very painful for her.

Endocrinologist, Delhi
Dear lybrate-user! We do not get people come to our home to dress us, brush our teeth and for other day to day activities. Hence insulin injection should always be self administered or at most by a family member. An outside person will never do it with heart, plus one will then totally become dependent on an external person, lose all freedom. Trust me it is not a pleasant experience. Your painful experience with injection suggests you have not been trained properly to inject insulin. Please meet an endocrinologist. He/She will be happy to teach you and your mom the correct insulin injection technique. Proper injection is always painless. Apologies for this strong worded response but that is the reality. If you were in Delhi, I would have been more than happy to help.

Mouth ulcers can be due to various reasons like stress, deficiency, injury, etc. Please use mucopain for local application. You can take a multivitamin once daily for a month. Get a full mouth check up done for proper treatment.

I just got checked my blood and urine. I hv increased uric acid i. E. 7.5 but do not have any prblm. Please tell me what is symptom of incrsd uric acid and how to control it.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, there are many people with high uric acid, but only a few develop joint related problems. Not that every person with high uric acid has gouty arthritis. So you need not worry. You can still avoid foods which have high purines like: certain fishes, sardines, trout, herring, shell fish, salmon, scallop, mushrooms, mussels. Plus organ meats, red meat in general, alcohol, high sugarated drinks, colas, fructose corn syrup containing products. Can consume milk products, green leafy vegetables, salads, whole grain products, legumes etc.

symptoms of diabetes are incrased thirst, increased appetite, increased urination , loss of weight, blurring of vision, skin infections, leg cramps andmany more. There are no mentioned stages but for your understanding Stage 1 when it is controlled by diet and exercise. Stage 2 when it is controlled by diet, exercise and drugs. stage 3 when you require insulin to control it without any complications. Stage 4 Insulin and complications are present. There is no way to prevent it except for life style modifications

Hi I'm Irshad want to know how I control my sugar level bcoz I have diabetic patient.

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Hanumangarh
I recommend to control your sugar level 1) have regular meals. Divide your meals into 5 to 6 times. 2) one teaspoon of methi seeds soaked overnight in 100 ml of water is very effective in controlling diabetes 3) good fats such as omega-3 and monounsaturated fats (mufa) should be consumed as they are good for the body. 4) diet should be high in fiber. Let whole grain cereals & flour, salad vegetables, green leafy vegetables & fruits be an integral part of your meals.

Why change? continue the same if it is under control. But, you definitely have to start on antiplatelet drugs since you are a diabetic in order to protect the heart. You definitely should lose weight. You are atleast 20 kg overweight.

My mother (45 years old) has thyroid problem. Yesterday she had a test for it. In report, T3 and T4 levels are fairly normal and close to low side but within the acceptable range. But TSH level is high upto 13.83 where its acceptable range given in report is 0.35 - 5.50. Can anyone suggest me a good cure in this regard? What should be done now?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, she has developed hypothyroidism, which needs to be treated with taking thyroxine tablets regularly and that too for lifetime. There is no cure in this situation, plus she has to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, mustard, peanuts and coffee. Should consume a good deal of green leafy vegetables and salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Avoid refined flour like maida and products made out of it. Exercise regularly to avoid weight gain. Thanks for the question.

I want to know a diet plan which I should follow to decrease my weight n fat. I had a czerian delivery 11 months back which exercises should I follow. I am having thyroid after delivery n I am taking medicine for it.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Specific diet for a person has to be individualised. That can be done based on present weight, ideal weight, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. Unless all those details are there, no diet plan can be given. A general guide line can be as follows: your diet should be such that it meats the exact caloric needs based on ideal body weight, extent of daily exercise and how much one wants to loose. Looking at your height and weight your bmi is 28.75 kg/m2, (normal <23kg/m2). Your ideal body weight should be about 55 kgs. So your diet has to be planned for that weight plus amount of daily exercise also to be taken into consideration. Should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, aerated sweetened drinks, pastries, fructose corn syrup containing foods, highly processed foods, high fat mil products. Should consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain products, no refined flour. Dink at least 8 cups of water every day.

Symptoms include excessive thirst, hunger and excessive urination, especially at night. You may also have weight loss, tiredness & irritation. If you want to know if you have diabetes, it is best to check your fasting and pp blood sugar levels.
