I am facing diabetic problem in 7 month of pregnancy. Will this problem be solve after pregnancy?
Gestational diabetes is generally during pregnancy, in most of the cases the sugar levels come in range after delivery. But there are chances of the diabetes persisting in some cases. So you have to be very careful and lead a very healthy lifestyle throughout your life. 1. Exercise at least 5 times per week 2. Eat whole/unprocessed foods at regular intervals, while being aware of physical hunger/fullness cues 3. Sleep 7-9 hours per night 4. Don’t engage in extreme diets 5. Stay consistent with your habits 6. Incorporate non-exercise physical activity 7. Ignore food advertising You need a diet which comprises of whole grains like jowar, bajra, wheat, brown rice, pulses like moong, musoor, bengal gram, lots of vegetables, fruits, eggs, fish, chicken, paneer, healthy oil, nuts and seeds. You need to eat them in right proportion. Avoid eating sugar and sweets, refined foods like maida, noodles pasta, White rice and products, bread. Drink a lot of water.

Hypothyroidism may contribute to about 5% of your body weight. That means about 4 Kg can be extra due to thyroid problem. Rest of the extra weight is due to eating habits - oil /sugar and due to lack of exercise. You have to take medicine for thyroid, however it will not reduce the weight as you expect. You have to change your diet + daily exercise, only then your weight will reduce.

Hello lybrate-user. You have hyperthyroidism. It cannot be cured permanently. But it can be kept under control by medicines.

It can be due to higher sugar level but this doesn't mean that your mother is not having any other back issues, so better to consult some doc.

Hypothyroidism is a hormone deficiency disorder, where thyroid glland is not producing adequate quantity of thyroxine or nil. This is a very important hormone, required for development and day to day functioning of brain, plus involved in multiple metabolic functions in the body. Hence, has to be made available daily through thyroxine tablets for lifetime. So it is quite obvious that the treatment has to go on for whole life. There is absolutely no option. Thanks.

Hi, Please suggest For diabetic patients Fructose is good or bad.
I am diabetic.
May I take fructose full fruits or not.
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. For your information all the fruits are full of fructose, it is the main sugar of fruits. As diabetic persons are advised to eat fruits, so fructose is good enough. However, it has to be taken in limited quantity. Excess is not good. Fruits like banana and chikkoo are very sweet, should be taken in limited quantity. But it is essential to achieve a strict glucose control. Thanks.

My age is 42. I have a bp 90 and 140 from last five years. Some doctor says it is ok and some says it is on the higher side. I took many precautions to make it down as I walk 30-40 min daily. I drink maximum fluids. I avoid salt. But still it remains the same. Is it harmful. Pls suggest how I can take it down if it is high. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, ideally bp should be systolic 120 to 130 (when heart is contracting), diastolic 60 to 80 mm hg, (when heart is relaxing. At your age it good to have bp as 130 / 80.131 to 139 and 81 to 89 is considered as prehypertension. So you will have to see that it is closer to 130 / 80 mm hg. One of the most important aspect is to reduce salt intake to just about 3 g a day. Avoid processed foods, deep fried foods and high fat foods.

Stress and infertility

Stress and infertility

It is not clear how exactly stress impacts fertility. It is not known whether high levels of stress can prevent pregnancy or affect a woman's chance of conceiving. We do know that reducing stress provides a better quality of life during times of intense personal challenge. 

What is stress? 

Stress is often defined as an event that a person sees/ feels is threatening. In order to protect itself, the body responds with a fight or flight response. How can stress impact a fertility patient? sometimes, infertility patients respond to the stress of being unable to conceive by aggressively pursuing treatment and procedures. Other patients withdraw and isolate from family, friends, and community. Neither of these extremes is ideal for patients who seek to treat their infertility and build a family. 

How can I reduce my stress? 

Having less stress in your life while pursuing fertility treatment may not, in and of itself, result in a pregnancy. However, developing better coping strategies to manage stress related to an infertility diagnosis and treatment can help you feel more in control and improve your overall well-being. 

It has been shown that stress does interfere with making rational and well-thought-out decisions. Reducing stress can allow patients to research, explore, and consider all the options available with a clearer mindset. By reducing stress, the pros and cons of one treatment course over another can be more effectively weighed and considered. 

Reduced stress is good for your health. While no one expects patients to approach fertility treatment stress free, finding ways to minimize stress while pursuing treatment can help. It is helpful for patients to look for ways to reduce the burden of infertility treatments and medical protocols. 

There are many stress-reducing techniques; some of the more popular methods recommended to fertility patients are: 

acupuncture 

aerobic exercise (may be reduced during treatment) 

collaboration with experts in stress reduction 

guided imagery 

journaling 

listening to music 

massage therapy

meditation 

mind-body groups 

mindfulness 

progressive muscle relaxation 

psychotherapy and cognitive behavioral therapy 

self-help books

support/educational groups 

visualization 

walking/hiking 

yoga

 

How can I help my friend/loved one? 

Friends and loved ones are facing a challenge. Telling patients to be less stressed can make them feel more responsible for causing their own infertility and feel blamed. Telling someone to relax can cause greater stress. However, asking how couples/friends are doing and suggesting concrete and pragmatic ways to reduce stress will enhance quality of life and give the patient back some sense of control. For many struggling with infertility, just having friends/loved ones available for listening is greatly appreciated. 

The goal of stress reduction is to minimize, not eliminate stress, by finding the technique that serves the patient's needs the best.

Your reports are in the pre diabetic range. I sugget you first get a test done called as Hba1c to decide on the furthur course. Mostly, regular physical exercise and dietary modifications will help in preventing conversion from prediabetes to diabetes.
