Hi, Type-2 Diabetes is a lifestyle related problem, so making a few lifestyle changes can lower the chances of developing type 2 diabetes. -Excess weight is the single most important cause of type 2 diabetes, so control or reduce your weight if you are overweight! -Avoid sedentary lifestyle and start get moving. Brisk walking for a half hour every day reduces the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. -Modify your diet: *Choose whole grains and whole grain products over highly processed carbohydrates. The bran and fiber in whole grains make it more difficult for digestive enzymes to break down the starches into glucose. *Avoid sugary beverages which have a high glycemic load, and drinking more of this sugary stuff is associated with increased risk of diabetes. *Choose good fats instead of bad fats. Good fats found in liquid vegetable oils, nuts, and seeds. Trans fats or bad fats are found in many margarines, packaged baked goods, fried foods, fast or junk foods. *Limit intake of red meat and processed meats. Nuts, seeds, beans, tofu, or poultry are much more healthful protein choices. -Quit smoking. -Moderate alcohol consumption decreases the risk of type 2 diabetes. -Avoid taking unnecessary stress or tension! And keep an optimistic attitude in life! Medication: Take homoeopathic SBL’s Diaboherb medicine/ 3 times a day daily. Home Remedies: Dry the leaves of mango tree and grind to a powder. Mix 1 teaspoon dry powder in a glass of water and drink it daily to reduce high blood sugar levels. Take 2 teaspoons of bitter gourd (karela) juice once a day. One can also increase its use as a cooked vegetable. Take 1 teaspoon of Indian gooseberry (amla) juice mixed with 1 teaspoon of bitter gourd juice twice a day.

My mom age is 38. And she is diabetic patient. .she had lots of neck and shoulder pain .what to do.
A gentle massage will help your shoulder muscles release stress and tension. In addition, it will improve blood circulation and reduce swelling and stiffness. Get the massage done by someone who can do a good massage to your shoulder. For massaging, you can use olive, coconut, sesame or mustard oil. 1. Warm the oil slightly and apply it on the shoulder. 2. Gently squeeze the shoulder muscles and apply pressure as well to relieve pain and encourage blood flow. 3. Massage for about 10 minutes, then put a warm towel on the affected area for best results. 4. Do massage therapy a few times daily until the pain subsides.

Hello lybrate-user, first, now a days, a diabetic patient can eat everything as long as his or her diet is balanced and high in fiber so that the sugar in food goes into the blood in a sustain way. I would recommend you to have complex carbohydrate sources as you need sugar for proper functioning of some of your vital organs like brain and keep your body mass healthy. Consume nutritious balanced diet, liberal amount of fluid, small amount frequent feed, avoid foods and drinks higher in calorie and lower or empty in nutrients, do regular physical exercises and get 8 hrs. Sound sleep. You should consult a dietician who will suggest you a proper and scientifically correct diet plan and only from there you can get a customized diet chart.

Pre diabetes is like sitting on a fence. You can fall in either direction. There is a good chance that you will not progress to diabetes if you control your diet and do regular exercise. There is always a possibility that you may develop diabetes some day... especially in stressful situations.

What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

MBBS, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Mumbai
Hashimoto is autoimune condition where body produces antibodies against thyroid gland enzymes. Iodine is raw material for thyroid hormones. But when manufacturing unit is getting destroyed it won't help. Final product is t3 t4 so supplementing final product is treatment of choice. It will be life long.

A therapeutic diet in itself can solve many of your problems. Dietary therapy prescribed by a registered dietitian is needed. You need to provide me daily food intake example. There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed. Eat a balanced diet as prescribed by a registered dietitian, I being a registered dietitian and doctor have been successfully helping patients achieve their optimum weight goals and help in several diseases. The best diet is one which is healthy and well balanced with foods from all the food groups, and one which is varied and that you can stick to I being a registered dietitian strongly accommodate the patients own preferences without the patient feeling that they are on a diet not compromising the weight management goals. I will also prescribe medicines that will speed up the time to achieve your weight management goals and help heal many of your lifestyle diseases. Check my tips blog on lybrate to see more details on healthy diet for your problems. I will need to carry out detailed assessment in your case, after assessing your personal challenges to weight management, I will recommend a strategy to gradually change habits and attitudes that have sabotaged your past efforts.

I am 60 years old man. I want to ask how keep control over bp and sugar without having medicines.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology

I am 60 years old man. I want to ask how keep control over bp and sugar without having medicines.
Mr. Lybrate-user, if one does not have high bp or hyperglycemia (diabetes), then simple change in lifestyle helps one in keeping bp and blood sugar in control. Modified lifestyle means - regular exercise preferably 1 hour a day (even though 30 minutes is said to be enough), maintaining near normal eight (bmi <23 kgs/m2), taking healthy diet with great deal of green leafy vegetables and salads, eating 2 to 3 servings of fruits a day, using whole grain food products, avoiding refined flours like maida and items made of refined flours like pasta, bread, bakery items, sweets, aerated sweetened drinks (colas), junk foods and pastries. Also refrain from alcohol and smoking. But if diabetes has actually developed similarly if high bp has already set in then drugs are needed along with above mentioned life style modification.

My friend having a problem of thyroid (goitre) So kindly provide the medicine for the same.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, It has to be properly investigated to see if goitre is causing hypothyroidism or thyrotoxicity. So by simply mentioning goitre no medicine can be prescribed. Plus in this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines and no prescriptions. Hence, if you are (your friend) looking for specific treatment advise, then please come back with following details: Thyroid assay results, body weight, height and details of any symptoms experienced. Thanks.
