For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in salt, low in fat and high in fibre. Avoid bakery products. Avoid too much rice and potato. Avoid fried stuff. Avoid chocolate, cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and fruit juices. Eat lots of vegetables. Walk for at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days in a week. Medicine and insulin will work better if you follow diet and exercise.

Mr. lybrate-user, Plantar fasciaitis is an inflammation at the insertion of that fascia in the heel. It needs certain regular exercise like walking on the toes, picking up a cloth with toes, using soft foot wear and applying ice to the heel twice a day. Plus there a few exercises suggested. That will help in controlling it. Occasionally local steroid injections are given if the pain is too bad. Thanks.

Your fasting blood sugar is low. You should adjust your medication to keep fasting blood sugar above 70. Pp mainly depends on your meal. For diabetes follow a diet low in carbohydrate, low in fat and high in fibre. Walking for 10-15 post meals will help reduce your pp value. Follow a stress free life.

Hi thanks for the query. For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

What are the effects of taking synthetic thyroxine? If it remains within the zone ,does it have bad effects?
Synthetic thyroxine is given to supplement the endogenous thyroxine and does not have any side effects. Side effects from the other components in the medicine have been reported but are practically inconsequential in clinical practice.

MY TSH READING IS 0.02. WHAT IS THE SOLUTION.
Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. 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.

Mr Vishnu, You are having T1 DM, if so then the only treatment is taking Insulin injections daily for life time, there is no option. You have to take care and maintain sugar levels with in normal limits like fasting closer to100mg and PP between 150 to 160 mg and HbA1c% <7. Apart fromInsulin injections you have to control diet and also exercise regullarly.

Hai, How we know uric acid high? Only the way of checkup or any other symptoms? If any symptoms, please advise. And please notify which is normal level? Thanks.

Dear friend, knowing the uric acid level is done by a simple blood test. However symptoms of increased blood uric acid are pain in the joints, particularly that of foot. Increased level of uric acid are more common in men, that more so in those who consume alcohol in excess and eat red meat regularly. So in case you have foot pain, joint pains, please get your uric acid level checked from a good lab. Usually uric acid below 5 is within acceptable limit.

You must be suffering from hypothyroidism and not hyperthyroidism. This disease is due to underfunctioning of your thyroid gland and is mostly irreversible, I am sorry, but in that case, you may have to continue with your treatment for life. Diabetes is also a progressive disease causing underfunctioning of your pancreas and requires similar treatment either through oral medicines and in later stages, insulin also may be required.

Tips to control Diabetes

One teaspoon of methi seeds soaked overnight in 100 ml of water is very effective in controlling diabetes.

Intake of 6 almonds (soaked overnight) is also helpful in keeping a check on diabetes.

Good fats such as Omega-3 and monounsaturated fats (MUFA) should be consumed as they are good for the body.

Fruits high in fibre such as papaya, apple, orange, pear and guava should be consumed
