Hello. I am dipali. And I m 17 years old, my mother is a diabetic patient. Her sugar level is about 200-300 so. What ...
With blood sugar levels of 200 to 300 mg, she has a uncontrolled diabetes. This needs to be rapidly controlled with appropriate treatment with anti diabetic drugs either oral or with insulin injections. Uncontrolled diabetes affectsall vital organs like eyes (retina), kidneys, small and large blood vessels, heart and nervous system. So please initiate correct treatment immediately and bring sugar levels down to _ fasting closer to 100 mg and pp around 150 to 160mg and hba1c%<7. This is a must. Plus she should take a restricted diet and exercise daily. Avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries. Consume more of green leafy vegetables and salads. Use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. No maida. If you want specific suggestions please come in a private conversation where I can be specific.

lybrate-user ji, As you feel you should consult eye specialist. If everything comes normal then neck exercise & some yoga to be made part of routine. If by the way you don't get relief then definitely it may be due to stress (known or unknown). At no meditation clinic mind management is available which is simple easy less time taking ** which is not available after mind management mind gets free out of stress insecurity in professional /family life. Mind comes to know in 1st meeting that yes the above facts are true & possible. Effects on body r treated with powerful techniques like craniosacral balancing n quantum touch which work on whole body. Wishing you a healthy life Regards

Hi Frequent throat infections can also occur secondary due to sinus infections if you have post nasal drip constantly. You will need to get a nasal endoscopy done to rule out any sinus pathology.as you have frequent headaches it can likely because of sinus issues get a sinus x ray done also. Can do steam inhalation twice a day for few days. Do warm water gargling for throat pain.

Diet to Lower Triglycerides

The purpose of this is to present, to all who want the knowledge, a safe and dependable method through which individuals can lower their elevated blood triglyceride levels. When it comes to health care, you need to stay alert, ask questions, and ultimately rely on yourself for important health care decisions. By applying these guidelines, you will be able to take control of your health care, just as we all should do. You can achieve astonishing results - if you put your mind to it. By having the whole page printed, you can read it in a nice easy chair, away from that glaring monitor.
No miracle cure is needed to reduce triglycerides. Unlike lowering cholesterol - 80 percent of cholesterol is manufactured by the body - for most people, lowering blood triglycerides is as simple as

cutting back on sweets and
getting off the couch.
Excessive sugar intake is no longer about expanding waistlines and tooth decay only. It is a common way to boost blood triglyceride levels.

So it comes back to that old litany - a healthful lifestyle consisting of a good balance of:

dietary low-sugar intake
exercise to maintain an optimal body weight
no smoking, and
moderation of alcohol intake.
It is the same standard treatment recommended at doctor's office for individuals with high cholesterol, high blood pressure and other health concerns. However, the majority of people still remain confused about the most effective way to normalize blood lipid levels.

As a matter of fact, we can't seem to adapt ourselves to all those "dietary and lifestyle plans" for the long haul. We all seem to wait for the Holy Grail of diet and lifestyle to be found.

Definitely, when it comes to triglycerides, foods have a direct impact on their blood levels. What we eat does affect our serum lipids. We don't need new triglyceride-lowering drugs.

For the majority of people, the first line of any treatment for high triglycerides should be a change in diet and, eventually, in lifestyle. But deciding which "diet" to choose is not an easy task, especially for those who have little time for meals. Since triglycerides are circulating forms of fat in the blood, you might think that

a high-fat diet will raise your triglycerides and
a low-fat diet would lower your triglycerides.
This belief turned out not to be true. According to the recent evidence, the most important dietary predictor of triglycerides appears to be carbohydrates, namely,

sugars
starches and
refined (processed) grains.
In other words, what leads to increase in blood triglycerides are mainly diets high in carbohydrates, especially sugar (American Association for Clinical Chemistry).

In fact, the effects of high carbohydrate diet on the triglyceride synthesis by the liver - the major source of blood triglycerides exclusive of chylomicrons - have been known for a long time (J Clin Invest. 1968 April; 47 (4): 712–719).
Avoid Triglyceride Blasters I: Basic Eating Plan

The amount of food you should be eating is about the size of your fist per meal.
Within the diet itself, sugar and alcohol have the greatest influence on triglycerides. Therefore, when it comes to lowering your blood triglycerides, you should:

ELIMINATE or AVOID:

High Triglycerides: Sugars Increase Triglyceride Levels ALL sugars such as:
concentrated sweets: table sugar (sucrose), cane sugar, brown sugar, Turbinado sugar, Demerara sugar, powdered sugar, honey, syrups (especially high fructose corn syrup as a substitute sweetener for sucrose-table sugar added to fruit juices, sodas, and other beverages), preserves, molasses, jams, jellies, and candies
desserts-baked goods: pies, cakes, cookies, crackers, frosting, pastries, doughnuts, ice cream, frozen yogurt, and regular or sweetened gelatin
beverages: fruit juices, fruit drinks, fruit punches, regular sodas, carbonated pop, colas, aid drinks, smoothies, sports drinks, sweetened coffee drinks, mocha, and chocolate drinks
Triglyceride Reducing Diet: Avoid high-fructose fruit - dates, raisins, figs, prunes, grapes, pears, cherries, apples, persimmons, blueberries, bananas, kiwi fruit, watermelon, plums, honeydew melon, grapefruit, orange and pineapple high-fructose, sweet fruits (both fresh or dried): especially dates, raisins, figs, prunes, grapes (red and green), pears, cherries, apples, persimmons, blueberries, bananas, kiwi fruits, watermelons, plums, honeydew melons, grapefruits, oranges and pineapples
other foods: sweetened cereals, flavored yogurts, and sports or energy bars
Triglycerides Lowering Diet: Avoid or Limit Alcohol Alcohol such as
Triglycerides Lowering Diet: Avoid or Limit Beer beer
Triglycerides Lowering Diet: Avoid or Limit Wine wine
hard liquor
liqueurs (usually sweetened alcoholic liquors) and cordials.
PLEASE NOTE: A reduction of alcohol intake is crucial in keeping triglycerides in check - just one drink can increase triglycerides in susceptible people. If you have elevated triglycerides and consume alcohol - a reduced intake or not drinking alcohol at all is strongly advised.

LIMIT:

Triglyceride reducing diet: Limit low-fructose fruit: apricot, nectarines, peaches, cantaloupe, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries low-fructose fruits, such as apricots, nectarines, peaches, cantaloupes, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries
Limit Commercially Raised Beef - The Dangers Posed to Our Health commercially raised red meat, especially fried, charbroiled and barbecued, and changing it to broiled or roasted poultry (turkey, chicken), preferably free-range.
ADD:


dark green leafy and cruciferous vegetables.
By all means, this is NOT another deprivation diet! Although the food "restrictions" advised to help you lower triglycerides may seem hard, it is heartening to realize you can achieve astonishing results without the risky drugs most conventional doctors recommend - if you put your mind to it.

However, after your triglyceride level goes back to normal, you should follow a modified sugar and alcohol diet for the rest of your life.
