Blood sugar levels both fasting and pp should be mentioned. Also hba1c % also should be informed, based on which guidance may be given. Insulin being taken may not be adequate. Patient has to do self monitoring of blood glucose at home and then decide on changes in insulin dosage. Please seek your doctor's advise. Dosage can be increased every alternate day by two units based on dailyfasting glucose level. Dosage to be stabilsed once the target level of fasting blood glucose is achieved.

It seems like a strech pain of your fatty liver radiating to the area mentioned. For controlling uric acid - switching over to vegetarian diet, avoid bakery products, pulses and high protein content foods shall be regulated heavily. Avoid tomatoes, cabbage, carrot. More on fruits and plenty of water also helps in reduction of uric acid. Abstinence from alcohol and smoking is a must. Have a good day and healthy times ahead, please come back to me if you have any issues. Also donot forget to report the results of the advices later.

This means that the blood sugar levels continue to be high, threatening the normal functioning of the body. According to Ayurveda There are 20 forms of Diabetes : 4 are due to Vata, 6 result from Pitta, and 10 are caused by Kapha. But Diabetes (MADHUMEHA) is.Mainly kapha dosha disease.

General Physician,
Regarding online consultation there are certain points which all should know and follow. 1) the description of the diseases should be complete in all respects, including any tests done and any medicines already taking. Just saying I have diabetes since 10 years and taking metformin cannot help a discerning doctor a scientific advice. 2) your place and name and mail id and phone number should be in the question. It is necessary at times to know where you stay to give a good advice. (for example if there the climate is warm or cold and many other factors) 3) it is necessary to keep in regular touch for some diseases like diabetes and hypertension. So make it a point to be in touch by asking private questions. And repeat the essential point of the previous question to give a continuing answer. All these are said with intention to give a scientifically correct answer and talk as if in a regular consultation about which I am very keen to. 4) for personalised attention and follow up ask privately and it is better to make online payment if you are asked to by the doctor. It involves his time and dedication to give you expert advice after studying your problem. Ask personally in case of doubts about any medical matter. it is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch.

The pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes is related to lifestyle factors like obesity, physical inactivity, diet and other familial and genetic factors; recent studies have also highlighted the role of oxidative stress and inflammatory cytokines like IL-6 and TNF-α in the development of obesity, insulin resistance (IR) and damage to pancreatic β-cells in diabetes.

My doctor has prescribed me thyroid medicine for 1 month and asked to do prayaam, walking and avoid food rich in iodine. Now I have 2 situations, first is I can take all precautions along with medicine and second without medicine, as because he said its slightly more than reference range. Please help me out with this.

Good morning as per the information provided you are suffering from diabetes for the past 2 years. Presently your fasting blood glucose is 120 mg% and pp blood glucose is 205 mg%. The hbaic is 8.6 I assume (806 is not possible). From these values it is evident that blood sugar is not very well controlled as your hbaic is 8.6 (it should be preferably below 7.5, if not 7). The medications that you have been provided are fine. It's a combination of glimeperide, metformin and voglibose (which are standard drugs). Methycobal has been added since you are diabetic who can develop neuropathy also. However, your blood glucose needs to be monitored. Preferably you should purchase a glucometer and keep a record of your blood sugar. Persistent high sugar level may be harmful for your eye, kidneys, nerves and heart. Recheck you hbaic after 3 months. If it remains more than 8.5 insulin may be needed. Get your eyes checked and urine for spot acr checked. Hope this helps

Hi  First: medicines are mandatory.  Otherwise ypu might have weight gain, muscle ache, sleep and anxiety issues as well as gynaecological and cardiac issues later. You need to get an USG neck done  and an FNAC USG guided of thyroid gland. FT3/FT4/TSH  If ypu have already done these tests Share on Lybrate I can help you better. Any history of alcohol  intake /fatty food /sugary food How much exercise do you get done every day? Ideally you should be doing a good mix of cardio, weights and crossfit  exercises to keep you healthy Together  with a balanced diet with optimum  healthy fat protein and carbs.  Avoid  deep fried fatty food and fast food. No soft drinks /sugary drinks. I am outlining  food you should avoid or restrict in Hypothyroidism. It's important  you maintain  your body weight exercise regularly. Weight gain increases thyroid hormone requirements.  Avoid cruciferous   group of veggies  like cabbage and broccoli. Avoid soya bean in all forms. No soya, nugget, chunk, tofu or milk. Limit their intake: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and bok choy. Cooking the vegetables can reduce the effect that cruciferous vegetables have on the thyroid gland. Limiting your intake to 5 ounces a day appears to have no adverse effect on thyroid function. Decrease gluten  intake from processed  food. Always try whole grain varieties of cereals which is rich in fibres and help improve  bowels (Take your thyroid replacement  medicine several hours before or several hours after food rich in fibres. Otherwise problem  with absorption  of hormone. 20 to 35 gram of fibres daily from all sources. Avoid excessive fatty (deep fried) and sugary food as hypothyroidism  causes your metabolism  to slow down &weight gain. Avoid highly salted food, chips, pickles, sauces as they Contain  large amount of sodium. Hypothyroidism  puts you at risk of high BP and excess sodium in salt aggravates Coffee  in excess. And coffee with thyroid hormone  replacement  can prevent absorption.  Thyroid function tests should be done every 6 weeks initially till its normal. Then every 3 months. The dose is adjustable according to bodyweight symptoms. Other tests which should be done CBC WITH ESR USG NECK LFT LIPID PROFILE PPBS Hope this helps Let me know.  Take care

Suffering From Diabetes - How You Can Optimize Your Nutrition?

Suffering From Diabetes - How You Can Optimize Your Nutrition?

What happens in diabetes? Your body is unable to breakdown sugar due to either production of less insulin or because of insulin insensitivity. This leads to a surge of sugar in your blood. High sugar damages key organs like kidneys, heart and nerves inside your body. If left untreated, diabetes cuts down on life expectancy and takes life away from the years a diabetic is alive. Its treatment is managing the quantity of blood sugar through diet and lifestyle changes, including exercise.

Diabetes nutrition
Diabetes nutrition requires cutting down on foods that raise blood sugar or glucose. These are called high glycemic index foods. The glycemic index is the ability of food to raise blood sugar in the body. Usually, it is measured as a reference to glucose, as 100.

So, ‘bad’ carbs are the highly processed carbohydrates like polished rice, white flours and semolina or sooji with high glycemic index. And the ‘good or healthy’ carbs are those that contain more nutrients like minerals, vitamins and fibre and low glycemic index and include fruits, whole grains and vegetables.

Fat is also a problem for diabetics. But why?
Remember, traditionally doctors have focused primarily on blood glucose management, but diabetes management today has overshot the goalpost. More people with diabetes will die of heart disease than of diabetes. Hence, diabetes nutrition management today emphasises not just glycemic control, but also the management of blood pressure, lipids, and other risk factors that may jeopardise heart health. Hence, to optimise diabetic nutrition, apart from low carbohydrate, low fat, calorie restricted diets are also crucial. Low fat diet also aids in weight loss which helps people with type 2 or adult- onset diabetes control blood glucose better.

How can you make the best use of diabetic nutrition?
Diabetic diet can be optimised by taking these simple steps

  1. Eat three meals a day at regular times. This helps your body use insulin better.
  2. Start your day with a good breakfast.
  3. Eat exactly the same quantity of food every day. Avoid overindulgence one day and abstinence the next.
  4. Eat more fibre which means more legumes, lentils and peas as well as fruits like pears.
  5. Use more monosaturated fats that are present in nuts, olives and walnuts.
  6. Avoid red meats- they contain saturated fats.
  7. Stay away from baked foods and processed snacks as they contain trans-fats which are bad for the heart.
  8. Exercise is key to optimising your diabetes diet. It helps you manage both your weight and insulin sensitivity. Even five percent decrease in body weight helps.

These are just some of the ways diabetic nutrition can be optimised to attain multiple goals of attaining proper blood sugar, blood pressure, and lipid goals plus achieve body weight goals for preventing or delaying diabetes complications.

all this regular exercise for at least 1 h should also be, it is good to know that all the three conditions that you have are in control. To keep sugar in check you have to consume more complex carbs, avoid sweets, direct sugar and deep fried foods. Consume more green salads, green leafy vegetables, fruits like apple, orange, water melon, sweet lime, pear, guava, papaya and pomogranate (any one of these 1 - 2 servings in a day). Avoid red meat, egg yolk and pastry items. For hypothyroidism you should avoid soya and soya containing foods, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard and coffee. For high blood pressure salt intake should be minimal. Avoid papad, pickles and extra salt at table. In addition daily at least 1 h exercise is to be maintained.
