Hello dear High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time.

Avoid sweet, sour, and salty foods, potatoes, sweet potatoes, colocasia (taro), yams, fresh grains and pulses (legumes), whole yogurt (high in fat), and heavy, oily and spicy foods. 6.

Hye, 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 - the sugar levels will fluctuate depending on what you ate or did not eat, stress levels and activity levels. You have to try and manage a balanced carb intake. Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. You have to eat 3 main and 3 mid meals. Your diet must include whole grains, seasonal fruits, vegetables, small amounts of nuts and dairy and pulses or dals or lean meats like chicken or fish and egg. Starchy vegetables need to be planned into the diet. 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. Avoid exercise if sugar levels are above 250 mg/dl. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Lybrate-user, for hypothyroidism if you are on treatment, then tsh should be between 3 to 4 milli units/l, for complete relief from symptoms. You can have breakfast like everyone else. There is nothing special required. Following foods / vegetables should be avoided: - soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Always use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Avoid maida and products made out of it. All bakery items should be avoided. Consume more of green leafy vegetable, salads and fruits. Avoid high fat containing cheese. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, usually insulin injection is prescribed when blood glucose is not well controlled with oral drugs. So it is rather difficult to shift totally on to oral anti diabetic drugs. We may have to look at the total treatment, diet, exercise and fasting, pp glucose levels and hba1c%. Thanks.

MD - Pathology
General Physician,
Once your body stops producing insulin it cannot start producing again. You are such a young diabetic adjust your lifestyle according to your problem so that no complications arise in long run. If you are overweight get your weight in normal range. Take a regular follow up with your medical specialist so that he can help you maintain your blood sugar in reasonable limits. Get a diet chart initially. Stick to fonts of diet strictly. Most importantly keep yourself as active as possible. Daily brisk morning walk will do wonders to you.

This is a general low back ache and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes, if pain still persists you can stretch your body by twisting the waist on both sides how we used to do in the school drill similarly you can try which will help you relax as well will reduce the pain. Ice can be kept in the low back where you have back pain. It is suggestible to wear lumbo sacral belt which would help you to build the abdominal muscle tone which itself would make you feel better. You can also wear mcr chappels which would help you to have less weight falling in the painful back.

It's difficult to decide the type of diabetes from the info provided. At your age, type 2 or mody are the commonest types. However, type 1 could also occur, though less common. The only way to decide would be to do the following tests: 1) serum c peptide 2) gad-65 antibodies 3) hba1c.

By birth uric acid can not be higher than normal. You must get treatment of both high uric acid as well as cholesterol. At the same time you get treatment for liver because liver dysfunction may cause rise of these elements. You also take care of your meal. For cholesterol avoid fry, fatty & fast foods. For uric acid preferably be vegetarian, avoid protein diet also leguminus foods like dal products.
